Yes and yes, but it should be rare, because Jesus expelled them to hell. The only way a person can be possessed is if they invite or allow the "devil" in. This may also happen if a parent curses their child.  

One may speculate that this may be the reason why many churches like the roman catholic bans the use of wigi boards and pendulums and devices that speaking with the dead. [because whats around to talk with are mostly not good]

So pretty much since this not the end of times and unless you are a devil worshiper don't worry. (:

Juju,

I think that's spelled Ouija.

I don't believe in demons or demons possession, but then...I think demons are 'invented' by religions in order to scare people off enough so they would behave well within the restricted order. But that's another discussion. I don't mind what people believe, as long as they don't force their belief onto others.

Like scattered leaves...my words will flow

Seems to me obvious that belief in gods and demons preexisted organized religion.  Organized religion (in various ways) merely explained them.  

Could such a doctrine be used to manipulate people?  sure.  But that has little bearing on whether or not its true, since all kinds of things (true or false) can be used for that.


And Juju,

that's okay.
Spelling's not required
for good philosophay
though its preferible
I must say

Being a magickal practitioner (not the satan-worshipping, baby-eating kind), it is not a matter of belief for me, but of experience.

Yes.
