With interests in science, nature, and the paranormal, cryptid explores fringe topics from a unique and sometimes controversial perspective.

Are stories of demons drawn from sightings of real-life creatures, or are these strange beasts proof of demons here on Earth?

What are Demons?

Are there real demons here on Earth, and do sporadic sightings of strange and elusive creatures provide the proof? Speaking in a religious sense, demons are usually depicted as agents of evil. They’re supernatural beings that come from the spirit realm, forms of darkness that lurk in the shadows. Some say they’re fallen angels, banished forever from God’s light.

These are demons in the traditional Judeo/Christian model, and there are plenty of alleged accounts of such creatures throughout history. Sometimes they are said to haunt homes, intending suffering for the people who reside there. Other times they may actually possess a person.

We are all familiar with these stories. Whether you believe them or not is, of course, a matter of personal opinion. But let’s consider another theory: Is it possible there are strange creatures here on Earth, rarely seen and undocumented by modern science, which have inspired mankind’s fear of demons?

Perhaps they are entities from another dimension, visitors from a spiritual plane or real flesh-and-blood animals. They’re appearance is terrifying, nearly as much so as their behavior. Possibly they simply wish to exist on their own terms, and mean us no harm. Or maybe they are messengers, who appear only to pass on important information. Maybe, they are really evil after all.

In this article we’ll take a look at three mysterious creatures that have baffled the public, the authorities and the academics for decades: The Mothman, the Jersey Devil, and El Chupacabra. We’ll examine the stories behind the sightings of each, and see what similarities exist. In the end we’ll try to answer the question: Are they real-life demons here on Earth?

Demonic Traits and Behavior

When we look at these monsters we can see they have a lot in common. They also have a lot in common with the stereotypical description of demons. Here are a few of the shared traits:

  • Bipedal: All three of the creatures are said to walk upright like a person. Demons, of course, generally take some sort of humanoid form. The Jersey Devil is said to have cloven hooves, an attribute often linked to the Devil and demons.
  • Wings, and/or the Ability to Fly: Demons are often depicted with wings, a characteristic of at least two of our monsters. There are some reports of El Chupacabra being capable of flight, though reports of wings are rare.
  • Sharp Claws: Another stereotypical demon attribute, two of our creatures are said to have sharp claws. Little mention is made in reports of the Mothman’s hands or claws, other than that it takes a humanoid form.
  • Glowing eyes: Witnesses of all three of these beasts report glowing eyes that struck terror into them. Of course we’d expect nothing less from a demon!

Looking beyond the physical traits, they also exhibited similar behaviors, such as:

  • Attacks on pets and livestock, sometimes for food and sometimes simply out of aggression
  • Revealing themselves to humans in plain sight before flying or running off without a trace.
  • Appearing to many people over a relatively short period of time of weeks or months, then vanishing.

Looking at these facts, we seem to have three very similar creatures here in both appearance and behavior. What does this tell us?

Perhaps they are real, flesh and blood animals that are rarely seen by people and gave rise to the legend of demons.

Maybe they are visitors from some other universe or dimension who only appear for brief periods of time.

Maybe, they are real demons, fallen angels from Hell itself.

The Mothman Encounters

Of all the cryptids alleged to exist in this world, the Mothman is one of the few that some say has been responsible for real human suffering. This is a winged creature with all the hallmarks of a what might be typically called a Devil. With a humanoid form and an apparent ability to either foretell or cause disaster, the Mothman may well be a demon here on Earth.

The events that occurred in a West Virginia town back 1966-1967 have cemented the Mothman's reputation as a terrifying supernatural being. But what is this creature really, and what role did it play in those events nearly half a century ago?

The story of the Mothman started on November 15th, 1966, when two couples in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, reported seeing a man-like creature with huge wings and glowing red eyes near an abandoned World War II munitions factory. The beast chased them home, and the couples reported the encounter to the police.

That same evening, a man nearly 90 miles away was rustled out of his house by a strange whining noise. In his backyard he discovered a large, terrifying creature with glowing red eyes.

The man went inside and found his rifle, but hadn’t the courage to go out and confront the beast. In the morning he discovered his hunting dog had gone missing.

Local authorities united and scoured the land in a search for the creature, particularly the vicinity of the abandoned TNT factory where it had been first sighted. As they searched, many more people had their own sightings of the bizarre and frightening creature. Each told the same story: A large, flying man-like entity, with big, glowing eyes was reported in each case.

The Mothman began to appear in nearby towns, and then around the state. The creature seemed to be everywhere. Reports of attacks on pets and domestic livestock skyrocketed, and many attributed these attacks to the Mothman.

Sightings only subsided with the tragic collapse of the Silver Bridge in Point Pleasant, which occurred on December 15th, 1967. Some believe the Mothman had come to warn the town of the imminent disaster, but was unable to communicate its intentions. Others believe it may have caused the destruction of the bridge.

Occasional encounters with the Mothman continue, and today the beast is celebrated with the annual Mothman Festival. But sightings never again reached the level they had back in the late 1960s.

The Mothman seemed to appear for only a short time, then vanish. Why was it here? What did it want? Will it ever return on the scale of the 1960s encounters?

More to the point, is the Mothman truly evil, a demon here on Earth?

The Legend of the Jersey Devil

The Jersey Devil is a horrifying supernatural entity that came to the public's attention during a brief period of mayhem in the early part of the 20th century. But it has been around much longer, and its presence has spawned numerous origin myths to explain what it is, and where it came from.

People are seeing something strange in the Pine Barrens. Is the Jersey Devil some kind of unknown or misidentified creature, or is it really a demon here on Earth?

Below is an artist's rendition drawn from eyewitness accounts back in the early 1900s. What is this thing?

Do sightings of the Jersey Devil prove demons are real?

The Jersey Devil may have the most direct claim to demonship by name alone, but there are also those who think it could also be a real flesh-and-blood animal. It has haunted the Pine Barrens of New Jersey for hundreds of years, and is said to be a bipedal creature with the head of a horse, bat-like wings, cloven hooves and sharp claws. Some cryptozoologists believe it may be rare animal that resides in the dense woods of New Jersey, but legend says it is something far worse.

Stories that attempt to explain the Jersey Devil vary, but most of them revolve around the pregnancy of a women who curses her child, which then turns out to be demon. It’s likely these tales were fabricated to explain a creature that was already well established in the Pine Barrens before Europeans began to populate the area. Native American tribes referred to the Barrens as the Place of the Dragon, and dragon is certainly a fitting description for the Jersey Devil.

The Devil most notoriously made its presence known during an outbreak of sightings back in 1909 when over fifty separate incidents were reported during a one-week period. In several cases the Devil was seen by law enforcement officers, government officials and large groups of people. The Devil was said to attack livestock, and even exhibited aggression toward people. In one story it was shot, and proved impervious to the bullets.

For a week the Jersey Devil terrorized small towns in New Jersey, and was even spotted as far west as Philadelphia. Just as suddenly as the beast appeared, the sightings stopped. The Devil is still seen on occasion today, but for one week in 1909 it seemed to be on a mission of some sort.

Like the Mothman, was the Jersey Devil attempting to communicate with humans for some reason? Did it have an agenda, good or evil?

Origins of the Jersey Devil

El Chupacabra: Intruder in the Night

Alien. Demon. Genetics experiment gone wrong. There seems to be nothing that can truly explain the terrifying Chupacabra. This is a monster that defies science and logic, with a winged, humanoid build that makes it reminiscent of cultural depictions of a devil.

But accounts of this creature vary, depending on who saw it and where. Does that mean witness accounts are unreliable? Or, could it mean El Chupacabra is some kind of shape-shifter with supernatural abilities?

Does the presence of this being and others like it explain alleged sightings of demons around the world?

Is El Chupacabra a real demon?

In Puerto Rico, back in 1995, something began preying on local livestock in strange ways. It came in the night, terrorized local villages, and left without a sound. Like a vampire, this creature appeared only to be interested in the blood of its victims, and would leave the rest of the animal behind.

Farmers and ranchers were dumbfounded, and could do nothing to stop it. Then one night the terrifying culprit was finally spotted, and it was like nothing anyone had ever seen before.

Now known as El Chupacabra, the Goat Sucker, the monster is described as short and bipedal, with large eyes, sharp claws and a line of spikes running down its back. Soon El Chupacabra was spotted all around Puerto Rico, and then other Latin American countries.

Everywhere it went there were tales of frightened people, and exsanguinated livestock. Speculations of its origin ranged from top-secret government projects, to alien involvement, to some bizarre and unknown animal just now seen for the first time.

The initial sightings eventually died down. There were more reports of El Chupacabra in America and Mexico, but these seemed to be of a strange canine creature unrelated to the original sightings. Whatever El Chupacabra was, it took its secrets with it

Today El Chupcacra is sighted infrequently. Some cryptozoologists believe it may be an unusual species of bat, rarely seen and undocumented by modern biology. But witnesses know what they had seen was no bat.

What was this unusual being, and where did it come from? Stories of similar creatures on the island of Puerto Rico could be traced back some 20 years prior, to 1975 when a similar rash of livestock attacks occurred. Are these outbreaks cyclical, and if so will the Chupacabra return in 2015?

The Dover Demon: Real Devil Sightings Debunked?

Is this Proof of Demons here on Earth?

Taken as a whole, what do we make of the sightings and evidence behind the Jersey Devil, El Chupacabra, and Mothman? Some would say they are legends built on the power of mass hysteria and suggestion. It has been speculated that the story of the Mothman began with the sighting of a large, white owl. Many say the Jersey Devil may be misidentified Sandhill Cranes. Certainly humans are fallible when it comes to our senses, and many a rumor has begun based on half-truths.

Then again, stories of demons here on Earth have been with us for thousands of years. Who is to say what form they may take, and how they may appear to us. All three of these creatures have done their share to torment and terrify people. Would this not be on the agenda of the average demon?

Until we have better knowledge for why they are here and what they want, El Chupacabra, the Mothman and the Jersey Devil can be explained as real demon sightings just as well as anything else.

      As they say in the video, any distortion of the face or body can be seen as demonic or monstrous. I really feel sorry for the poor woman Jeff saw. Not only homeless but problems with her face and having to bear people's reaction to that...

      Otherwise, there are no demons. People with not really well-functioning brains are real, though. Schizophrenia, depression, other illnesses can cause hallucinations.

      The problem occurs when these people attack others thinking they are demons.

      I witnessed a demon face to face, about 15 feet away, im glad my buddy was with me to validate the experience. A girl in her 20's, homeless, walking in front of our vehicle shading the left side of her face walking into a fast food place. Got to the door and very slowly turned her head to make eye contact, omg, looked like someone had jammed que balls into her eye sockets, my buddy said said are you seeing this, i said lets get the hell out of here

      What demons actually are is the disembodied spirits of the nephilim. Do you know the story of goliath? When goliath died, his spirit is a demon. Goliath was an abomination creature. Meaning he is an offspring between human and angel. The fallen angels did this in an attempt to thwart Gods plan of salvation via a messiah. They couldn't corrupt the savior like we are born with sin because sin passes through the seed of man. So the tried to alter the DNA of the entire human race. This is why the flood of Noah took place. Noah and a few others was the only pure humans left. The Bible is much more wise than a lot of fools realize. You here people say the God of the Bible is a tyrant or monster because he kills innocent people. Well they do so but what they don't realize is He had a real and good reason. They was not a creation of his. They was one of the generations of the abominable creatures. The later generations appeared as human but the earlier generations was more obvious and these are the ones the Bible refers to as giants. They was huge in stature and some where deformed or to some degree monstrous looking like say cycloptic. Nephilim , look it up if you want to know the real history. These beings are demons not fallen angels. Angels do not need to posses anyone to interact with our world. Demons do.

      Here's a couple of stories and things I experienced at my old place.

      I used to live in a 15 year old caravan. I don't know who else had lived in in apart from the landlord, me and my mother.

      So I would experience 'supernatural' occurrences. It wasn't anything that major Things falling when they shouldn't have (one time my Wii remote fell from my shelf. It was behind some books.) etc. But, quite often, I would feel as if someone was watching me. Especially if I'm alone. I'm not paranoid, since I'm home alone quite a lot where I live now and I don't get it anymore. I always felt as if some sort of entity was like watching me or something. I don't really know how to explain it if I'm honest.

      But, there's something that really creeped me out, and I've only now thought to finally look into it. I haven't really told anyone because they probably won't believe me. I still remember it as if it was yesterday.

      My mother was working late again, so she would come home at 9pm. I was used to that. Anyway, I was playing on my PS3. Probably Skyrim or something. I don't exactly remember. But, I suddenly felt a strange feeling of dread and fear for no reason at all. I was terrified of going out of my room but I didn't know why. I soon became hungry so I wend to make some food.

      I thought 'what could go wrong?' so I opened the door to go to the kitchen. When I stepped out of my room, I heard a deep, demonic laugh and I saw a tall, shadow-like figure There was nobody the same height as him that I knew lived close by. But, he also had huge demonic horns.

      I have no idea what that thing was or what it wanted, but it still sends shivers down my spine to this day. And here I am now, nearly midnight on a school night, researching what it could be.

      I'll chime in here and share my story that is 34 years in the making. It's a long one so I apologize ahead of time and just want to say I believe every one of you that has seen or felt a demon in your presence. Some accounts happened when I was too young to remember but my parents told me about them and the latest when I was an adult (I'm 41 now).

      I was born in Central America in the late 70's, in those times we did not have all these "channels" of information that could influence a young mind like today where we are surrounded by fantastic images through movies and cgi. Keeping that in mind consider the following:

      When I was 3 1/2 years old, my father was driving down a winding path in a thick fog when I suddenly told him to slow down or he would run into the dead man. My mom got the chills and told him to slow down.

      About a mile down the road we encountered a procession....carrying a coffin. Had he not slowed down there would have been a lot more dead than the person in the box.

      We then moved to Jersey in the early 80's and things started to get really strange. One morning when I was about 6 years old I saw an old lady walk into the kitchen...I ran after her and only saw my mom cooking. I asked her where was grandma (strange thing is I did not call my grandmother that). So my mom freaked out and asked me what I had seen so I told her just that. Two days later my grandmother came over to tell my mom that my grandmother's mom had passed two days ago and she just found out.

      Age 7, it very was early in the morning and no one was awake at the time. I was lying in bed staring at the door (that was half open) when the most paralyzing vision of what I believe to be a demon stuck its head into the room. The thing was about 9 feet tall and had a flat, flesh colored cylindrical head that was covered entirely with eyes of all sizes and colors. It just stood there looking at me and in my terror I just threw the blanked over my head for a few seconds, when I peeked over the covers it was gone. Till this day I can not get that image out of my brain and I have always wondered what it was until now...but I'll get to that in a bit.

      Age 9, One of my favorite things to do was drawing...on anything...it still is. During the winter months the windows in those old Jersey building fog up so they make for perfect finger drawing surfaces. The way the street lights hit the water beads made for an even better drawing (to an 8 year old I guess). So I began to draw buildings over and over and over again. Since our apartment had so many windows I was at it all night. When I was done my mom came over and asked me about one particular drawing so I explained why I did it. I told my mom this was a drawing of the Twin Towers breaking in half (exploding) and that we had to leave this place because the same thing that happened in our country was going to happen here. We left our country running from a cival war that destroyed the backbone of everything my parents had worked so hard to achieve. We moved the next year....freaked my mom out yet again.

      This sort of thing happened over the years into my adult hood. I was able to sense the death of my brother-in-law's best friend about a week before it happened. I saw an accident in my mind from looking at a car just to find out a couple months later it belonged to a co-worker that had gone missing and was almost decapitated. I was able to feel the agonizing experience my parents and sister went through when they decided to revisit Central America after almost two decades...they almost got lost in the mountains and thought they were going to die out there....I felt it all and even told my wife about the horrible sensation as it was happening.

      I don't really research paranormal things nor am I very religious but I do believe in God and the Devil. After years of analyzing what this thing could be I believe the demon that visited me was death itself. If it is covered with eyes then it can see everything...the past...the present...the future. Why else would I have been so in tuned with visions of those that had passed (the person in the coffin, my mom's grandma) those that could pass/in death's grip (my family almost getting lost and me feeling their anguish in real time...and visions of those that would pass (the world trade center deaths, my in-law's friend, my co-worker) and many other instances that I will not go into in this already long ramble. I have not been visited by this all seeing demon again but I wonder why, till this day, did it use me as I could not warn anyone...just that one time when the man in the box crossed my path.

      I saw a demon surfacing around my room one night when I was ten. It went on for two nights. I felt like I was awake, and I was, yet I saw it. No one in my family believed me. But it felt so real, I haven't gotten over it to this day.

      Me & my older brother had a horrific simultaneous nightmare when we were around 9 & 10....A lucid nightmare of a demon baby clicking claws like a dogs on linoleum...When I realized I was not awake or asleep looked down off bunk bed to see it snarling up at me--the only thing that snapped me out of it was my brother running into my room screaming "Did you see it too?". I honestly believe he saved my life that night..

      I clearly think that demons do exist. I do believe that demons exists in physical form and in spirit . Lucifer and his angles were tossed out of the kingdom of god, and he is revengeful. They are not units of unattractive image but they are desirable. They present themselves to be glamorous and irresistible, so they can lower you in to be apart of there suffering. There journey is destruction and death. They are followers of Lucifer and they are destined for hell. There were angles that reverenced god and respected the lord, I believe that god assigned them to us for protection. I believe that God has created them for his own purpose.

      I had an encounter 5 years ago now with 3 smaller ones & 1 larger one. A what? Idk. It had the head of a frog and looked like a 5 1/2 foot frog but part human. I say human cuz it stood on its legs. It spoke telepathically & all 4 of them had these fine strings that came from the mouths. I tried to run as I was going thru a woody area dark & rainy up a hill. I heard a smash. I got knocked out. I tried to get up 3x and was put out. Finally I decided not to move & I looked around & seen these glowing strings stuck to me. I followed these glowing strings a weird greenish blue color & they came from the frog man creatures mouths. We spoke back & fourth for a bit. No, this was not the Loveland frogman I live in Duluth Minnesota. That's mynyoutibe above but my names David Guite / Jesus reigns. My wall pic. Anyhow I was lost you'd could say at that point in my life and seen many different things b4 from shadow people to transparent demons but these things were of solid matter and they basically kidnapped me. Well, in a sense as they wouldn't let me go for bout 15 minutes this went on. Not until my prayer to God then the one leader got furious. They let me go. Bout 4 blocks later I tried as I was walking to tell myself I was just hallucinating but I knew better. Then I seen it appear across the street standing on it legs. It gave me the biggest grin ever and I was almost crippled with fear I tried not to look at it & kept walking. It wasn't green it was silvery black wet looking shiny like rubber skin or like a frog I guess. It's eyes were si Iliad to a frog only they were big big and almond like alien pic eyes. Webbed hands & feet. Had a glowing energy about it and appeared in a few different places after that within a few minutes as I walked. Less then 100 yards from me. I felt that night they were trying to kill me & shock me & stop my heart and take me to Hell

      As michelle said demons are indeed fallen angels that were thrown out by god for betraying him and rebeling against him. And truth be told i think that are here just to make us suffer and maybe they do it to show us the pain that they feel.

      demons are not fallen angels, this is a misconception put by demon himself,demons were living on earth before man and they hate man due to this fact.Angels are spirtual creatures that dont have any kind of disobedience of God inside them and they are agents and servant of God,

      I am pretty much a non believer of god angles or devils but when I was 5?years old I got electrocuted with an exposed electric wir and saw a dozen demonic figures very ugly flying around me.,I blacked out I guess and when I revived they were gone. I was too young to have preconceived ideas about demons and wonder where they came from or why I saw them . I dismissed my thoughts about them until recently now 70 years old and that aspiration came back to me when I had a fall. Are they real?? What did I see?? Anyone had a similar experience??

      I recently have been seeing beings which is what led me here today. I am trying to figure out what they are. They come for a few days and hang out in the back area of my home. It is wooded area. They watch us, for sure. They watch thru the windows. They also have the ability to come thru and form within curtains, or anything that will contain their body. Some are huge. Some are small. I believe they come thru a portal and are of many different ages. Some have bluish/green skin. Some look exactly like the alien pics that you see all over the web. Some look like demons. I seen one particular one that was quite charming, it seemed. From a womans point of view....quite handsome. He was huge and had beautiful black wings. In my mind I refer to him as a fallen angel. He could be the mothman this author writes about, idk. They all hang together, leading me to believe that demons and aliens are in definate cahoots with each other. Upon observation they seem to like cats, tigers and other animals. Often odd pets. LIke alligators. They also seem to like sexuality. The sexuality often is dark in nature. I fear them and am very intriqued all at once.

      Supernatural is a fictional show and I don't understand what I am supposed to be surprised about. Also Matthew 518 what,s the deal? I've seen demons with my own eyes and in visions and they come in various forms not just one. Demons are evil . Some might live on earth you don't truly know if they don't.

      Luke 10 :18 " I say satan fall from heaven like lightning ". And revelation 12: 7 " then a war broke out in heaven . Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he were not strong enough , and they lost their place in heaven . The great dragon was hurled down the serpent , the devil or Satan who leads the world astray. He was hurled to the earth and his angels with him.

      Aliens Gods Demons Angels

      The thing is They are There..

      &

      We Humans are not alone..

      Being Alone is scary all the time..

      some times Kids who live alone Develop an Imaginary Friend or an imaginary Guardian

      This can also be a reason behind God & Angels

      They are human's Imaginary friends

      Just like imaginary friend there can be imaginary Enemies..

      Or say Devil & Demons

      We always wanna know who are our creators..

      as humans can create.they think they too can be created or say they believe they were created by someone God/Alien

      but birds n animals too can create

      well..

      what i know Nature itself is a creator

      N a destroyer too..

      I don't what's behind this Nature

      science or God

      There are many possibilities

      I have read Hindu mythology..

      Most of the stories or say historical events in Hinduism gives indication of many Alien Lives..planets having life..

      use of science & technology in Wars

      Aero planes

      misiles

      Bio weapon

      Nuclear weapon

      Clones mutation

      Alien help

      everything if u are a student of science specially the science which creators of Ancient Aliens use.

      All religions say

      we have God in Us..

      It might mean we all have the dna n genes of Our Creator an Alien race..

      Sooner or later

      Truth will be found

      till then

      Do something Good for your planet

      as both will please ur creator whoever he is..God/Alien

      n u might get a chance to visit his place Heaven/Planet

      or it can be all about us

      timetravelling in the past

      n getting misjudged as Aliens Gods demons Aliens..

      I guess I'll chime in on the subject. I was raised and taught in a Christian home. I've done quite a bit of research through the years off and on. I often flip flop in my head whether ghosts are just demons or if they are spirits of the dead. Most of my studies surround the book of Enoch and the parallels with Ancient mythologies from Sumer to Ancient rome. It's possible that many of the entities we see today are remnants of the grand deception created by the fallen angels mentioned enoch, which also carries through ancient mythologies. Have you Ever wondered why mythology was so chuck full off supernatural beings? My theory about mythology, is that there is it derived from something that happened in the past

      All right, here's the deal.

      I can't say if Demons are real, but for people who "Encounter" them, those people will most likely want to pretend that the whole thing was nothing more than some acid-induced hallucinatory trip. In other words... like it never happened. I mean such ugly, nasty things... disrupts your happiness and gets you Thinkin' too much. :)

      I mean, if Demons are real, than all that stuff from the Bible would also have to be legit.

      But it's better to distance yourself from the Supernatural. The more you are in ignorance of it, the less likely you'll be burdened with such... unpleasant little truths. Things you have NO business messing around with.

      If you are looking for demons, take a closer look at your fellow man. I have had encounters with people I know to be demonic and it is far scarier than any of these creatures you are all talking about.

      In response to the UFO/alien comment by Ceegen, you may be interested in 1996 Varginha, Brazil UFO incident during which hundreds of people testified to seeing El Chupacabra-like creatures which came from a crashed UFO that was tracked on radar coming into Earth's atmosphere from outer space. One of the soldier's who accompanied one of the alien entities to hospital died from 8% unknown toxic substances.

      Matthew: I see where you are coming from. All I can say is I have an open mind about these things, as I hope you can see from this article, and I welcome the opinions of others, Christian and otherwise. I do think people naturally have different definitions of "demon" depending on their religious and cultural perspective. I also think you are correct that the Christian view tends to dominate, but there is always room for other opinions and ideas. You may not convince people who are truly firm in their opinions, but your thoughts can certainly provide great food for thought for those of us who are still exploring and looking for answers.

      Cryptid, if the Christians didn't come on these articles and insult demons according to "scripture", I wouldn't say a word. The problem with demons, we always look at them from a Christian perspective. 99.9 % of Christians have never had an encounter with demons, they just hate them based on what they read and hear. Many of the ancient civilizations, such as the Greeks, looked to them as a combination of good and bad, some could actually be beneficial. Demons vary as much as humans do. And I've studied spirit keeping for a couple years now, people have had very positive experiences with them. We need to stop being so judgmental.

      Matthew: Thanks for your input, and I agree that there may be several types of spirits misidentified as demons, or, as the subject of this Hub discusses, even real-world creatures that may have led to demon legends. Just out of curiosity, I too would be interested in hearing more from Brenda and Deborah on the their experiences, but only if they'd wish to elaborate. However, this Hub isn't going to devolve into a religious argument, so please let's refrain from criticizing anyone's religious views too harshly.

      Deborah, according to scripture, angels are "inherently good" even though I could have sworn they are credited with destroying a couple cities and everyone in it all because "God" asked them to. Keep in mind, the bible is one of a large variety of views on demons and angels, and no more accurate than the rest. If a being lives on Earth, it's not a demon. Demon's don't live here, they exist on another plane, and can influence life here, for good or bad, but they don't actually live here.

      Brenda, what was it you encountered, and how do you know it was a demon? Christians are totally ignorant on what a demon is, and there are a large variety of spirits who are labelled "demons", but clearly aren't, such as the djinn and the succubus, among others.

      Interesting hub. According to scripture, demons are fallen angels and very evil. I'd hate to meet any of them but supposedly they are on earth, so it could happen. People all over the world don't just make this stuff up, especially the sightings of the same beasts around the same time by trustworthy people.

      Fallen angels do nothing but get people to doubt God, so these things are either elaborate hoaxes or real.

      But look up the link between "aliens/UFOs" and demons. Way more evidence that these things are not what they claim to be!

      Our current view on demons comes from Christianity. Like your hub points out, there are a variety of beliefs regarding these beings, and many don't look at them as evil in any way. Dark, yes, but not evil. Some even give them credit for helping mankind build modern civilizations, and teaching them "forbidden" arts, such as magick. I don't think most demons have a truly negative view on humans, but humans can do things that anger them.

      These have to be demons, the angels that were thrown out of Heaven. They are evil and all they do is harm. There are many of them and they can take on a number of forms.

      Mothman the Jersey Devil and the Chupacabra may be what we call demons. There are other entities that can be loosely called demonic and they are called It Boneless and Devil Tiger and they reside in the British Isles China and Australia. Author Karl Shuker mention them in his book Mysteries of Planet Earth. These are fog like entities which seem to have consciousness and intelligence and which attack and chase people outdoors and have an unknown ability to injure and kill. They could be elemental life forms or atmospheric life forms or theycould be demons in disguise or mdemons using fog to terrify injure and kill. Either the fog itself is ka demon or the fog is a vehicle used by a demon to do its evil work. These entities shun the light. These entities exude pure evil and malevolence. One woman in China was attacked and killed by these entities and her remains were never found. It's a frightening world out there.
