    Thanks for the links. I've researched demons before but still found the "Who are demons" link interesting. I have heard other takes on what demons are, though. That JW site claims that demons are the disembodied spirits of fallen angels that manifested as humans prior to the great flood. While I think that's possible, I also think it's possible that demons are spirits of the Nephilim (which were the product of the fallen angels "mingling" with human women). Have you heard that theory about demons, too?
    Also, are you a JW?

    You’re welcome.

    Actually, the “sons of God” in Genesis 6:1-4 just materialized into human bodies, like the 3 angels also did that visited Abraham, in Genesis 18. (You know, they ate and drank w/ Abraham, too! Awesome abilities!)
    But when Jehovah God brought the Flood, which I do believe in, they just dematerialized...they had to leave their “wives” and children (Nephilim) behind, who died in the Flood. They didn’t, though, but apparently Jehovah has restrained them from materializing anymore. That’s why when they appear, they are apparitions. Fuzzy looking? Or see-through?

    Someday, we’ll be able to understand how their energy forms allowed them to become physical...hasn’t science determined that matter & energy are basically opposite sides of the same coin, so to speak? They (the demons) will be “abyssed” for 1,000 years by then, but maybe us humans will have interaction with the faithful angels? We’ll have to wait and see.

    Yes, I am.

    Take care, my cousin.

    The Nephilim (giants) somehow returned after the flood, which causes me to wonder if some fallen angels were able to materialize, again.

    Objects travelling at unfeasibly high speed in the night sky, and making impossibly sharp changes of trajectory. I mean impossible for man-made objects like planes and satellites, which move in particular ways.

    Actually I think it was psychosis. The Doll freaked me out so much I just thought it was creeply evil where I had worked myself up to such a frenzy, that I convinced myself the eye just had blinked at me because I decided to 'confront' it.

    It wasn't a small doll either , it was a fairly large one that would have even freaked out Annabelle.

    This was discussed here a few years ago. It is worth reading I think.

    Okay,

    From 1st grade to 12th grade my family moved a lot (my dads work) and we lived in 22 homes in that time. 2 of the homes were not haunted.

    Do I have stories?! I read some strange stuff about what people and their religions claim this is. I have a much different opinion being raised with spirits. It's like a religion telling me they speak to god! No I cannot share one story. The religions in people would see this as demonic. Those homes were from the devil! The Devil live with you! LOL.

    Good luck in your research brother, I spent a great deal of my life doing what you are doing. I will give you something to research. "The Ethereal Plain" It's not a book or anything. It's real research you'll need to do on your own. This is were these spirits are (live); some used to be humanoids and some never were. This is the reason you cannot catch one because they are not entirely on our plain. We live on the Material Plain my brother and it touches the Ethereal. Spirits on this plain learn to push into our plain but they cannot come over entirely. (except possession) spirit also us attachments on the Material plain to push, like a house. You cannot destroy them but they can be banished if you know what to do which fully sends them back to the Ethereal plain. When you believe that god is in the air above us; in heaven it's a hard topic to describe "Physics" and "Quantum Physics" to religion. As soon as you start talking dimensional spaces or plains there eyes roll back in their heads. BTW I am 100% Christian, Jesus is my brother so I am not beating up Jesus when I speak of religion in this paragraph. I know what religion has to say about this. Jesus and I are not religious. "If Jesus were religious he would have started his own church and wrote something down "something that he wrote" not someone else." Why do you think my brother never wrote anything down? Sorry this isn't a new topic. I am just saying to “Iwuz Madenew” that it is best to leave out religious thoughts when you study this topic. There are more "Plains" than just the two I describe btw, and GOD lives on one of the plains not described here. Some religions see ghosts as demons and or as the dead walking the earth they are right about dead walking the earth however it's a deeper topic than what they understand from the bible.

    Somethings are better left unsaid.

    This is for "bentherebeforeagain" I think I messed up your tag. You want to here a story?
    Okay,
    This is relatively short but I bring it up as you never know.
    My story "You never know"
    I was young maybe 9 years old. My dad's business is looking like the company wants him to stay put in an area. So we have lived in some poor building so rundown. Dad would typically go into the town we were moving to a buy the cheapest thing because we moved like Gypsies. Dad would find a realtor and they guy seen dad coming; I don't know. Show him a 15 room home with 4 bathrooms and my dads like no sir we cannot do that. The realtor would say it's been empty 100 years and it's yours for 500 bucks. Guess where we are moving. Next Haunted place.

    So now my dad has an this time after saving money builds a new home for us. He didn't happen to have all the money for the lumber. But as luck would have it he got word of a church fire and they had tons of good wood they are throwing away. Dad takes me out there and it was weird half the church was gone the other half no damage. Not even a smokey smell. Brand new. So they tore down all the good wood to build the church a new. And my dad and I halled pickup truck after pickup truck load to the sight of the house. He finished it in a year. Two story victorian, absolutely stunning.

    So we are in our new home watching TV in the living room. We start hearing this gnawing sound in the ceiling above so dad goes upstairs over the living room. No sound. Then in two seconds like a termite on cocaine a rat has chewed threw the ceiling and is looking right at us. Mom is screaming Dad came running down and hit the rat in the head with a shoe. It only disappeared for use to hear more gnawing coming from the ceiling. Like before but now 4 rats are simultaneously looking at use sitting on the sofa. I ran outside and slept in the car. My dad called in an exterminator ... mind you this is day one in our new home. Exterminator finds nothing. Next night same thing. But this time my dad is sitting in his chair with putty called spackel and a wide putty knife. Oh. yes ... If your thinking what I think your right. Dad opened up a can of [email protected]# on this varmints. They pop their heads threw the hole dad would spackle him. Dad would yell."I spackled your snout didn't I boy!" It was actually hilarious we had an indoor whack a mole game you played on the ceiling. LOL We got out and dad asked for his traveling position back.

    Ron
    Sorry my spelling is horrible.

    I'm a mutant. My aura of scepticism is so strong that all paranormal activity ceases in my presence.

    It's interesting that you mentioned sleep paralysis.

    I distinctly remember as a child I was angry about something in my room and sat up in defiance and was forcefully pushed back down onto my bed and then I was paralyzed for a short period.

    I attributed it to a case of sleep paralysis in the imagination of a child, that particular memory is still with me.

    I find it peculiar that stuff disappears as you grow into the teens and then on to adulthood.

    I concluded it was an overactive imagination and a case of sleep paralysis in view I was in my bed and was most likely in between the stages of sleeping and waking up.
