And yes that is right, if they existed, what would you think they are likely to do? Do you think as seen in stories such as religion(this is NOT a religion thread) or movies, games, tv or whatever that they are very likely to hurt you or do you think they would be just like every other living thing and mind their own business and only harm when threatened? Also if they existed, would you be scared if you saw one or not scared?

In Brazil, there is this neopentecostal church that claims that demons exist and possess people. Usually, the priest will say something to make the demons angry. The people surrounding the priest are allegedly possessed and they start throwing up and cursing and even their voices change. :ohdear: :sick: The priest then proceeds to exorcise everyone. :eeklez: Whether the people are truly possessed, I am not able to tell. What I can say is that the videos I saw on Youtube are truly frightening and that if the people are faking to be possessed, they do a much better job than Hollywood actors do. :ohdear: :ohmy: I have heard these churches exist in the south of the United States, as well, and have a huge following.

Meh. Demons aren't all that frightening as they come. Some are pranksters and want to mess with humans. The serious ones are the ones that want to drag you down and are pure evil.

Maybe I'm thinking too philosophically about this, but how would anyone be able to know? No one's ever definitively seen a demon, and many people don't believe they exist. It's kinda like asking what sort of animal behaviors a Sasquatch would have.

If this is for fiction research, just go with what feels right for you, man. Wikipedia is also a good place to start out for info on demons from different folklore from around the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demon Ars Goetia is also a good source for a variety of different demons. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_d ... Ars_Goetia Some are benevolent and others are malicious.

They do exist. There is a demon inside any of us and it's up to us if we are gonna let them out.

If we're talking about demons like from movies then I dont believe they even exist. It has been so many years since humans are on this planet and no one has ever seen one :P In my opinion it all came from somebody's very big imagination.

Given the question is about demons... Well, they have a strange morality and may cause some mayhem when they do us something that for them it's hilarious and friendly, but with a bit of luck and politeness you get out of trouble. Devils, on the other hand...

I believe in demons but again it depends on the demons. Some are good some are evil. If I am ever accosted by one I will pray to a benevolent God for aid.

Japanese believe in demons. Oni are the typical kind. And there are other types depending on which types. Some are known to cause mischief but are not straight pure evil. The descriptions vary from material to material...

How would feel about daemons?
If I can reason with them - I would. The could be quite interesting to talk with.
But if they are in just for the carnage - then the daemon season is opened - I'm out, hunting!

As a Christian who knows the difference, I have to point out that "demons" and "devils" are completely different things.

Again, "demons" are not the same thing as "devils". Devils are Satan and his crew, demons are spirits of nature that may be good or bad. The old representations of fairies (the ones that could help or destroy you depending on the mood, and could destroy you even as they help because they're just that different), and the Islamic "jinn", are some examples of demons.
But somehow, Christian generic knowledge of the distinction got lost at some point...

Um no Demons in Christianity, Catholicism, and judaism are fallen angels . The Devil is the labal for Lucifer , and satan. Demons might have different meaning in other culutures .

Well considering that I am a Pagan I believe that there are good and bad demons. I also believe there are good and bad Gods however the Gods are more powerful then the demons. I tend to see demons, angels, daemons, djinn etc as basically being minor deities however they are not the Ground of all Being as the Gods are.

So the difference between the devil & a demon is just on the former being the big/senior fallen angel while the latter a small/junior one. lol

You are kinda proving my point. Devils are fallen angels, demons is the ancient name, of Greek origin, for what was later called the Fair Folk. Both Christianity and Judaism knew it, before the knowledge was somehow lost.
Also, Catholicism is the MAIN Christian confession. Why is there people that have convinced themselves otherwise? And most imporantly, HOW?

No. Fallen angels are all devils, demons are something else differently.

My above-quoted comment is just following or basing on what imaginationgirl said before it, & I actually have no opinion on the matter. lol

There are demons in Yu-Gi-Oh!. but they're localized as Fiends, and Angels in the Yu-Gi-Oh! series are localized as Fairies.
