Demons

Post # 1
So I've been into demonology lately and found quite some facts myself but I was wondering if you could tell me some facts that you know of demons yourself.

You could always message me as well, we can share facts and what not.

But anyways, thanks!

Demons aren't the whole "I corrupt you and steal you away to hell" sort of being.

Demon comes from the Greek word Daemon which meant a Spirit capable of Good or Evil and since Good and Evil is a moral/point of view term then well you can see where that is going.

Effectively "Demons" were created by the Catholic church as a means to scare little boys and girls into being good to be able to go to heaven.

So when it comes down to it Demonology is just another name for Spirit Work like working with the Loa from Voodoo, or the Animal Spirits from certain branches of Shamanism.

Nothing so demony about it

really? o.o I thought the word "demon" was taken from the Greek word "Daemon", meaning a divine being with it's own power and energy.

Ren is correct, the origin of demon is daemon and was defined as a lesser god. Later, the Romans took the word and changed it to demon. Since Christianity considers that there is only one true god, all deamons/demons were classified as being wrong to work with and therefore evil. The latin translation of demon (de mon means "of evil"). That is why many higher beings, gods and goddesses of various cultures were classified as "demons" in "demonology". If you look into the original origin of many so called "demons" they were in fact ancient gods of Greek, Sumerian, and Babylonian cultures to name a few.

I studied/study latin as well. =)

Hah yeah, I was pretty sure that it originated in Greek. Many people interpret things that are different though

It did originate from Greek, But it is seen in Latin too.

The Romans took a lot from the Greek's when they were conquered.
such as Religion, Language customs.

People focus way.too hard on the origin of the word and use that to fill in the blanks but its not accurate. The concept of demon like spirits predates christianity and can be found world over. As well, daemon was used to refer to any kind of spirit as where demon was made to.refer to an evil spirit. And it wasn't even first used by christians, it first appeared.in a hebrew translation. There's some decent.info on actual demons on here if you use the search.
