I'm always open to hearing others views and researching opposing worldviews,
I appreciate your input,
don't blame later then
the demonology you're are preaching is only 525 yrs old and
straight out of the Malleus Maleficarum
which was written by a pair of misogynistic psychopaths.
the RCC's position on demons AND magic prior to the malleus's publication was the same as that of today's positivist-materialists:
"it's just craziness/delusional thinking"
indeed the malleus was originally consigned to the index of forbidden books
prior biblical demonologies date to the jews babylonian captivity and are of persian origin dating from Zarathustra's reforms and the Aryan-Schism
which lumped Devas and other morally ambiguous to neutral spirits in the camp of evil
prior to this the ancients believed that demons were invisible spirits that caused sickness and disease, [and other stuff like bad luck]
nowadays we refer to these invisible spirits microbes [microscopic, thus invisible animals [see: anima]as germs, pathogens etc.
not that i'm not denying the existence of negative entities; be they physical or not, just pointing out that you OP, the materialists, and
DO NOT HAVE A CLUE.
this aliens are demons propaganda is just a last attempt by the moribund Religious Paradigm in general, and Xtianity in particular at being relevant,
by the usual method, DEMONIZING a group, and sounding the clarion call of violence against the "demonized".
no sensible ET is going to appear before humanity with these violent people looking to make a name for themselves by starting a interplanetary war.
and don't get me started with the MIC's use of these anachronisms, to cover up their genocidal attempt at exterminating the Elementals.
