    Police confirm demonic posession

    According to police and medical staff in Indiana, two kids were possessed by a demon…...

    BBC - Newsbeat - Police captain confirms children 'possessed by demons'

    Interesting…….

    How would you mark that one off I wonder?
    A common mistake made when trying to come up with a totally foolproof design is to completely underestimate the innate ingenuity of fools.


    The last thing I want to do is hurt you but it's still there on my list of options, so are you coming quietly.........?

    Strange events lead Ind. family to resort to exorcism

    I found an article with more details. I'm at a loss for words.

    Interesting.

    Makes one wonder... For all the supernatural occurrences out there, how many have been written off through "science" by a doctor calling it "delusions of ghost in home" and "hallucinations."

    Personally I am skeptical but I still believe this stuff could and does happen. Would be tough to convince numerous police officers, priests, social workers, and other people if they were just doing a hoax.

    You know, I'd have an air quality test done in that house. And honestly it sounds like a form of Munchausen Syndrome, and Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. Or else a straight up Amityville Horror type thing, where they made up stories to get out of a financial situation. It's telling that they only had problems when living there, and it all stopped when they moved away. Also, the new tenant doesn't have any problems there. According to the classic literature, demons will follow one one person regardless of where they go, or inhabit one area and effect all or most of the people in said area.

    So yeah, I'm calling BS.

    The independent witnesses to apparent super natural events like the kid walking on the ceiling lead me to believe the demonic influence.

    That doesn't discount the probability of abusive parenting and/or encouraging the kids to ham it up.

    I don't know... Usually, the Church requires quite a bit of documentation before authorizing an exorcism -- though the rite is still "on the books." It's done very rarely, and usually, like I said, with extensive documentation to rule out fraud, medical or psychological disorders, or the like.

    There are things that strike me as odd -- like the parents not being affected, and, given the prevalence of cell phone cameras, that there wasn't a picture of at least the "wet footprints" or the oily blinds. It's not clear what sort of behavior persisted after the kids were taken by family services, either.

    I just don't know... I'm a practicing Catholic, and I certainly believe that there is a devil, and that possession is possible -- though rare. (He can work much more effectively in our world without that sort of obvious thing; I refer you to The Screwtape Letters) I've seen a few odd things over the years, but never anything like what was described. I just don't know...

    I do not discount demons, ghosts or angels since they exist. I, however, have never knowingly observed one in the aforementioned sense.

    I have, not quite as dramatically in the article, but I've seen it. Still gives me goose bumps.
