You learn something every day...

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

In seeking items to post on this blog I come across a lot of nonsense (I'm not saying this is a bad thing), and today is no different. I'm not sure how I've managed in the past without knowing what a "demonologist" is. But it's OK, because thanks to this interview with "noted demonologist" Keith Johnson, now I know.

You see, a demonologist "is essentially someone who makes a study of the activity, nature and history of demons, and is at least somewhat skilled in the practical application of this knowledge to apply this knowledge".

Of course they are. How could I not have known that? It seems I am not alone in becoming recently enlightened, as apparently TV exposure has meant "the reality that the demonic realm is indeed a reality is receiving greater awareness. People who genuinely need assistance with demonic disturbances are finding out that they are no longer alone in their situations, and that there are some reliable sources to turn to for help."

With this in mind, I trust you will all sleep sounder tonight.

Having been raised a Jehovah's Witness, I spent the first 3 decades of my life essentially scared of the dark, ever alert for a 'demon attack', one of the successful fear tactics that cult uses.

Just a week ago, my 34 year old sister was trying to convince me that a person she knows (whom she is studying the bible with) is undergoing regular demonic attacks because of her interest in the Jehovah's Witnesses.

So yes, there are many people that have not outgrown this childish delusion.
