IMG_1084.JPGThis isn’t going to be one of my normal long-winded, research-laden posts. This is just a quick link to a story that I found interesting which deals in the topic of demonology and/or exorcism. Although I do not agree with the methods that the content provider used in order to record the video in the first place, it gives a basic understanding, visually, to what type of environment you could potentially see during a legitimate exorcism.

Djinn SigilWithin my own research into the world of the paranormal, I began to start digging into anything I could to find out details in regards to malevolent hauntings and/or certain spirits. And at first, myself being Roman Catholic, obviously began to look inwards to my own religion for answers, but unfortunately, the topic of demonology pre-dates even my religion. So, my answer, it seemed, was to begin digging into other faith systems. I began to start studying the Hebrew religion of Judaism, and as you could imagine, that took up quite a lot of my time. Then, however, I came across something that made me take a step back, and reassess some patterns of thoughts that I had been forming.

This article is going to be a special one, because it is going to contain contributions from people who are more familiar with certain matters of faith than I am. They are not authors for the site, but simply people, both of which who choose to remain anonymous, who either have insight or personal experience in regards to this topic.

We are going to go in-depth the “demons” of the Islamic faith, the Djinn.

I will repeat, that it is very possible that the entity/Angel most famously known as “Lucifer” has never existed. And This is where it gets interesting. Throughout history, since the dawn of time, in most monotheistic religions, there have been a very clear-cut and defined definition of “good vs. evil”. If there is an all-seeing, all-powerful loving god, there must also be an all-corrupting, ever-present omnipotent destroyer, the devil. It has been a major topic of debate amongst the faithful for quite some time now. This is how it has been for many thousands of years, and this article won’t change that. However, I did come across something very intriguing, and I am going to share it with you: the entire identity of the Angel known as “Lucifer” may, in fact, be a scholastic error. That’s right, somewhere along the lines, someone screwed up. So, let’s begin to unravel why the name “Lucifer” may very well not even be a name for the devil at all.  (more…)

In the beginning, God created Adam and Eve, and made them in His likeness. This is the story that everyone has heard, most likely regardless of what religion you follow. It is present in all of the Abrahamistic religions, but most people don’t know that this story goes even farther back. Most people don’t truly understand that  other cultures have this tale as well. For example, In Egypt, this is the story of Osiris and Seth. They were also brothers, both in love with their sister, which is why one killed the other. Osiris is then resurrected and creates the first city. The Sumerians put down the story of the hearders vs the farmers on clay tablets, with the hearders representing Abel, and the farmers representing Cain. In this myth, the story of the god Demuzi vs the god Inkindu started fighting over their sister, the goddess who was Anana. This story bears a striking resemblance to that of the story of Cain and Abel. In Genesis, Cain goes on to create the first city as well after he is exiled. But that is getting just a little bit ahead of myself. Let’s take a second to get reacquainted with the story. (more…)

First and foremost, I have decided the very first review of this site should be something that I am familiar with, and for the past year of my life, I have been examining cases of demonic possession and reading every piece of written material I can find on the topic. The reason for this is because I myself am currently in the process of writing a book based on demonic possession and exorcism, and because I am so sick and tired of seeing movies and books exaggerate the facts of the situation, I decided that I was going to investigate the topic at exhaustive lengths. This movie called to me, because I had actually previously read the book it was based on, The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist, by Matt Baglio. The book, though shorter than I would have liked, was a very interesting point of view of a Catholic Priest who made the choice to accept his vocation and learn to become an exorcist. I could speak for hours on the topic, but I won’t. Instead, I will attempt to stick to the topic of the movie, and offer as much information as I can about each topic. Reader beware, this review will spoil the entire movie for you. It will be described in detail, and dissected. You have been warned. (more…)
