Many people hold beliefs in demons, and some pictures, photographs, are shared across social media to validate this position or spook viewers out. And that is where demons are found: within our fears.
The following are a few of the so-called demons but we believe them to either be explainable or suspect.
Are any of these web-famous demon pictures authentic or proof? We do not believe so, but you can take a look...
About the "Demon Pictures"
The first weird photo was shared on Reddit after posting on YouTube. Supposedly, a nurse saw the strange thing on a hospital security cam. Is it really a demon? To us, it has weight, is small and walking on the bed. Either it is staged, or just maybe, grandpa had a visit from his grandkid who stopped by with mom after playing a chicken in a school play! Seriously, what is missing are the before and after stills from the video (or the video clip itself). And why didn't the nurse go check on the gentleman or ask him if he had visitors? Where is the rest of this story?
The second and third demon pictures are of the Democratic Debate in 2000. Some believe the picture has a demon between the speakers. It is not a hoax photo. The image was accidentally produced and is a form of "pareidolia" (in this case, seeing a face in an inanimate object). Can you see the demon-looking face between Al Gore and Bill Bradley?
The fourth image is of a demonic-looking creature, most likely created for a video clip as the pic looks like a video still.
The fifth demon pic was sent to us, some time ago, and looks like it was created using an art program or maybe shows an inflatable display on someone's porch. You can read about this photo submission, below:
"My name is Arby and my friend was taking pictures of himself and this picture looks like there is something behind his right shoulder. I am not sure if it is a ghost or maybe just something else like the camera wasn't working well. We don't know exactly what it is."
The sixth demon picture is a fantasy art work by feebleminds-gif.com and represents the imagination of man with respect to traditional ideas of how a demon might look - as invisible beings out to get us, something to be feared.
What Demons Are (and What They Are Not)
We would suggest that demons begin with our own hurtful, fearful thoughts - the 'mis-thinking mind' of a person, whether on this side of the grave or the other. The state of mind is the person's condition and where they live, what they exhibit in spite of who they truly are. If a person were to take a picture of a true demon, it would show the shadow of a person when caught up in the mind, possibly vicious, but still, lost. Its existence would be held captive by the past, from prior experiences and the beliefs created during that process.
Many believe demons to be hiding behind rocks and trees, but we see them as negative thought patterns, fears, in the minds of men. Ghosts who exhibit attacking and disruptive behavior are often mislabeled as being "demons" or "devils." So far, we have not been able to confirm through historical or experimental evidence that demons actually exist as a completely different, real entity apart from folklore and people claiming to battle them. Labels and misinterpretations do not validate the existence of fables.
Historically, demons are linked with dark, human negativity: debase spirits that are egocentric, capable of creating suffering for themselves and others. They are ghosts of mankind who are hurting and, thus, cause hurt.
The word 'demons' is a label for human spirits that exhibit a high degree of negative behavior.
