    I've read a few articles in the last couple years about this rise in people agreeing to or demanding an exorcism...I do believe from particular reports that it is possible for something to inhabit a person, influence and perhaps take brief control...Is this true, I really don't know but this trend is astonishing...

    I too believe in malevolent entities but I think possessions are the result of a malevolent system made by self appointed rulers whom call themselves billionaires, and that the real demons doing the possessions own the cell towers, satellites, TV stations, radio stations, the political systems, the monetary systems, the military, the state security, and of course last, but not least, their own private collection of supposedly private security organizations whom are the ones actually doing almost all the actual evils. Some will do anything for money ya know.

    My real point here is not to forget about the things we already do know that these people have to mentally terrorize and torture people. So are we actually seeing demons, or is it more likely what these people are reporting are the manifestions of various experimental mind control programs?

    did humour play any part in the creation of the universe? or was it serious business right from the get-go.

    was building a perbola, well more like a protective cover from small falling tree branches, for my kayak the other day. all of a sudden something entered my body. a possession? indeed. as is my way, i strolled into the house, took the resident needle from it's usual place and got to work exorcising this unholy splinter demon from the fleshy part of my left hand. i of course, by tenetial rote, chanted the appropriate verbiage during the procedure. demon exorcised and flushed down the bathroom sink. was a close one. :D

    I believe it might be possible but not in the way Monotheistic Abrahamic religions see it

    I have read a lot about this case in a few languages. I think some of the scenes here are not real. From what I've read, what did I learn?
    The girl was from a VERY RELIGIOUS family, you might call them fanatics not just people who go to church on Sundays. She starved, they did not feed her properly. She was surrounded by those who strongly believed she was possessed. If the girl had schizophrenia, such atmosphere worsened everything, they helped her believe it.
    What else? Such kind of voice can often be heard from the very sick people. I had a crazy neighbor who talked on behalf of a man and a woman. We thought there were two of them for a long time. But one day my father paid my attention that if a woman spoke, a man was silent. That's how we realized what was going on.
    Annalise never showed any paranormal activity like telepathy or telekinesis, she never spoke foreign languages and a demon indeed can speak all the languages of this world.

    I am not denying it might happen, I am open minded but at the same time there are so many things here I question...

    Catholics are normally strict in granting exorcisms. It is rare to see a possession case or psychosis extreme enough for an exorcism to be authorized. Not so with these other churches who are treating simple depression, anxiety, etc as possession. The premise here, I suppose, is the idea that other denominations may be preying on the mentally ill with their 'deliverance ministries'.

    Heres a recent report on someone possessed by a ghost spirit...

    [​IMG]

    "More than 30 garment workers fainted in a factory at Canadia Industrial Park on Monday due to mass hysteria after news spread of one staff member being possessed by a ghost spirit.

    Bun Van, chief of the Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Workers Democratic Union in Canadia Industrial Park, said about 35 workers at the New Orient Garment Company fainted and were sent to a private clinic for treatment.

    “There was news spreading amongst the workers that one of them was possessed by a ghost spirit and was yelling for chicken to eat,” said Mr Van. “This information scared the other workers and they started to faint one by one.”

    “All of them were sent for treatment at a private clinic near the garment factory,” Mr Van added.

    Mr Van said it’s not clear if the ghost possession was real, but noted it is not the first time such fears have spread amongst workers at the industrial park.

    “At some garment factories in Canadia Industrial Park it happened more than ten times already. Some workers were brought to Takeo province to see Khmer magic sorcerers. In a few cases, owners of factories bought chickens to sacrifice at pagodas,” he said.

    More than 1,000 workers are employed at the factory, which produces jacket, pants, dresses, skirts and polo shirts.

    Kim Ly, 35, one of those who fainted, said some workers fainted in the morning and others in the afternoon.

    “I felt panicked and suddenly I fainted, but I still do not clearly know the reason why,” said Ms Ly.

    “Now, another worker who was brought for treatment at the clinic is still yelling like she is possessed,” Ms Ly added.

    Cheav Bunrith, director at the Ministry of Labour’s National Social Security Fund, declined to comment.

    Last month, Mr Bunrith said incidents of fainting in factories had decreased, from 1,800 in 2015 to 1,160 last year, thanks to education programmes on nutrition."
