You hear something crawling near your bed and suddenly you wake up from your dreams only to relieve from the fact that you were in fact dreaming about an ancient demon that seldom comes in your dreams..

There have been several theroies about demons since olden ages. Some people claim to have seen them, some say they are generated out of the deception of mind and some are ready to go to any extent to prove their existence.

Some religions used to be that some of the demons were in fact Gods and some said they were demons nonetheless. Let us take a look at the names of some of the most famous and notorious demons from the ancient past.

The Demon Baal

Baal was supposed to be a powerful ancient Judeo-Christian demon. It was understood that he had the powers to make people wise. He also had the powers to make people invisible those who invoke him. It is also learnt that his powers rise take a toll during the month of October. Baal is said to have a hoarse and husky voice. He was also said to possess an army of 66 units under his sole command. Going by the early depictions his appearance was that of a man and animal combination.

Satan (or Shaitan as said in Arabic and Hindi)

Satan was said to be a powerful demon from the ancient world. Usually, Satan, an idol of stone and clay, used to come to life at the will of his evil worshippers. Satan has the distinction of bringing death and suffering to this world. There also theories that Satan was infact a son of God who started a rebellion against God Himself and this might be attributed to the belief of him being so mighty and a powerful demon. Several other theories also exist in other religious scriptures such as that in the Muslim Qur'an. According to Islamic belief and understanding, Satan was a jinn (or jinni) who had powers but wasn't an Angel or God's Son. Due to his human alike freewill he had choosen to rebel against God.

-_- ::sigh:: for those claiming demons are all fallen angels that is untrue! as for all of them being evil that is also untrue. i actually know several & mind you they are all well spoken, educated, & actually in all honesty quite charming :). just had to share that bc it makes me sick to hear such bs about them from religious lunatics. stop trying to force your religious nonsense onto people.

I believe that there are some demons out there, but i don't think any of them would be smart enough to use the internet

Why look for a power you can't control unless you have a sertian type of discipline. demons want to be with you for two reason one they need a host or two they are their to influence you.

I would like to point out that demons are not pagan gods. some may have been worshiped as gods long ago, and still are today, some demons, which were corrupted by opposing faiths.

For the people that follow the lord, it is low of all of you to try and preach the word of god to people that don't believe its in their every right to worship what they want without any of your two senses and bible nonsense. i am educated in many different cults such as god but i choose my noris linege with the all father odin.

I was baptised catholic but i honestly don't believe in god for all that matter. how i see it is everyone has their own belief or opinion. you can state your opinion or belief, not everyone is going to agree with what you have to say but there is no right or wrong unless it is a fact or statement.

Human brains are hardwired to react a certain way to certain things, like with death or sickness or starvation. have you ever heard anyone say they want to be sick? excluding people who say it jokingly or only as an excuse to get out of school or work?

Some people are just plain dumb, and you have to deal with it. you have no business telling him how wrong he is especially considering how wrong you are. i really hope someone here understood a word i said, but if not, oh well. not my problem. anyone who understood what i said and agrees to any degree, feel free to shoot me an email.

Oh and by the way, jake? people who act the way you just did, are the reason that religious people are so strongly against anyone and anything that doesn't share their beliefs, to the letter.

If only you knew what demons really thought, or angels for that matter. .all are terrifying, we can only speculate, and it's not about being a "child" of lord lucifer or denouncing the westernised"god". it is actually making a mockery of the courts of all supreme beings, all seeing, hearing ,all-knowing. evermore and beyond infinity

If someone was to believe that the one almighty "god" and the demons were real, then the next obvious step is exorcisms. whether they work or not is inconsequential.

If the person receiving the exorcism believes that they are possessed, they will act accordingly. the human mind has a lot of power over the body. sort of how if you believe you are sick, you'll start getting minor symptoms.

Do not try to communicate with will make things worse, u need to threaten the demon with prayers to god and ask god to come and drag the evil spirit out of the person/home. do this as soon as possible or things will progress and once they do, they just continue getting worse and there's no turning around after the damage is already done.

I would like to raise the point that a banshee is not a demon. it's an irish/gaelic fae. traditional spelling would be beansidhe. they attactched themselves to families and would wail when the death of a family member approached.

I would just like to provide you with some interesting information on real demons. they are pagan gods slandered by the church, they are very powerful and positive. the idea of demons as monsters is very insulting.
