What about personal experience? I know a guitarist who routinely says, "Many times when I play, it feels like I'm not the one playing. It's like the
song plays itself, or like something else takes over." He is not possessed, he just loses himself in his performance. But if you didn't know that and
heard him say that and were given to belief in possession, you might not interpret it that way.
I play piano and have had such experiences myself as well while playing. The music just comes out. I'm not in control of it, and sometimes a half hour
goes by during which I wasn't even fully conscious of what I was doing, but I've recorded a lengthy piano track. Often it is of an attitude or
emotional tone not consistent with my outward personality. I can assure you I'm not being possessed, however. But I could easily describe it in a way
that might make it sound that way to someone given to belief in demons.
Because of these experiences, I am saying I'm aware of and open to the possibility that that's all she may have meant. There doesn't need to be
compelling evidence in order for a scenario to be possible. There does however need to be compelling evidence for a possibility to be asserted as a
factual reality in my opinion.
And as for such belief, since you mentioned it, no I am not personally persuaded of the existence of demons. I am open to the possibility, however.
I'm an agnostic skeptic.
