Hi, sorry I have not posted anything I’ve had a lot to think about recently, not that anyone cares lol. If you have not seen the TV show called Apparitions make sure you do it’s very creepy and interesting.
What are demons……evil?
A demon or daemon is a paranormal, often malevolent (Having or showing a wish to do evil to others) being prevalent ( Widespread in a particular areaat a particular time) in religion, occultism, literature, fiction, and folklore.
Further information about demons.
The Ancient Greek word δαίμων daimōn denotes a spirit or divine power, much like the Latin genius or numen. Daimōn most likely came from the Greek verb daiesthai (to divide, distribute). The Greek term does not have any connotations of evil or malevolence. In fact, εὐδαιμονία eudaimonia, (lit. good-spiritedness) means happiness.
The supposed existence of demons is an important concept in many modern religions and occultist traditions. Demons are still feared as a popular superstition, largely due to their alleged power to possess living creatures. In the contemporary Western occultist tradition (perhaps epitomized by the work of Aleister Crowley), a demon (such as Choronzon, the Demon of the Abyss) is a useful metaphor for certain inner psychological processes (inner demons), though some may also regard it as an objectively real phenomenon. Some scholars believe that large portions of the demonology (see Asmodai) of Judaism, a key influence on Christianity and Islam, originated from a later form of Zoroastrianism, and were transferred to Judaism during the Persian era.
