I've heard that story before. Also some Native Americans
had the same belief about their rituals. The bullets ripped
them apart rather handily, unfortunately. Now the mental
image of bullet-proof Indians who can't be hurt by the
invaders genociding them sounds appealing to me.. ah well
sometimes 'cold hard reality' is more real.
As for possessions.. I'd say that 99.9% percent are not real..
just mental problems.. but I've seen 4 real ones in my
life... but even in those cases I didn't see too much that
I'd call 'supernatural'. A parrot having coherent religious
discussions and some glowing read eyes in the possessed
and other minor things. The one sudden attempted suicide
on the part of an otherwise very grounded and stable person
was the thing that was the most terrifying to me personally.
In my experience, 'the supernatural' is quite real, but
generally the ways people talk about it is missing the
mark, and 99% of those who claim to be experiencing
it are not.
