This is a cute story right up until you realise these people will, and have, murder their children.

Doesn't seem there's much mystery here.
...and the very real trauma from the main eyewitness that got her in to see psychologists...
...and the kids having to be taken away at a couple points, but now that they've moved, they are apparently fine...
...but why let some actually eyebrow-raising stuff get in the way of being flippant and dismissive, amirite?
have you seen the Key of Solomon or the Sword of Moses? You might find those interesting if you have the time around your other studies (assuming of course that you haven't already seen them).Gregory Wollf said:He had crossed over the sea of Galilee (ie: outside of Israel) and the non-Jewish farmers happened to be in the pig business.Sleekit said:im still stuck on wondering why there were pigs near Jesus but i'll catch up in a bit...
I'm stuck on "even Jesus dabbled in the practice." As a master's student of theology I have to say, no. No Jesus didn't 'dabble' in exorcism, he championed it and has become the leading figure in the practice. Any Catholic / Evangelical / Pentecostal / any and all members of the Christian faith who attempt exorcism only do so in the belief that it is Jesus' authority over demons that allows them to even try in the first place. Exorcism was a key part of Jesus' ministry, a miraculous sign to accompany and give authority to his teachings. Even from a purely secular stance of looking at things he 'dabbled' in exorcism the same way that Niccolo Tesla 'dabbled' in inventing stuff or how the NSA 'dabbles' in collecting private information.
Also a real life exorcism has NOTHING to do with what is portrayed in the media. They should be treated as two separate topics.
Can I second this motion? Fantastic idea. I like the idea of a category dedicated to this kinda stuff. It would be like a new horror story every day before bed!

It has nothing to do with science, it's basically just LARPing for the religious. In the absence of a roleplaying section of the site, Cosplay seems to be the closest fit.orangeapples said:Comics & Cosplay? perhaps this would be filed under Science & Tech
