Sorry Buz, I'm a 'doubting Thomas' on stuff like this, and I'm also a bit late in responding anyway. First, I don't give great credence to Fox-News on anything. While there may be some truth to the reporting they give, to me it is highly dramatized, with an overly positive bias; almost a good comparison with the former 1970's TV series, "In search of..." with Leonard Nimoy. I think that if we are to believe this story, then we will also have to believe in your idea of the devil & his demons taking posession of people who are not christians. After all, it is part of (some) christian belief that they cannot be posessed by demons because their "bodies are the temple of the Holy-Spirit". However, you may not believe this. Second, this is heresay because the "source" in the story is only a witness, not the doctors, or the 66year old f__t. Thirdly, How can you trust the doctors who may be demon-posessed themselves, or did they get their degrees from the 'Magic Hindu College of the 30,000 gods' which has demon posessed teachers?
I think the 66year old f__t is hungry for attention.

I'm aware of what you are saying because I used to believe in the devil & his demons myself. However, It could be that the guy was unconsiously asking for help to cure his possible mental disorder. People who seek attention from other gullible types who jump at mystical experiences without critically examining them are in my opinion emotionally needy.
Heck, I'll bet you the man is a hoax & a swindler anyway; Time will tell, when the next FOX news report about this ol'e dufus will probably read something like, "...the 66 year old man who claimed to live for years without ingesting food was discovered by unbiased observers in his house munching away on twinkies, filet-mignon, & lobster just after he was visited by a large throng of admirers who gave them all their money." Then Fox news will have to retract their original story, demons or not!

I think Rhian is just pointing out by giving examples, that Fox-News is conservatively biased and a bit sensationalist in it's coverage, and therefore can't always be trusted to give a balanced presentation of events, and so your view that for example the 66 yr. old goddess worshipping goof has a demon(s) may not be taken seriously either.
Logic 101 class: Lesson 1: If the source is unreliable, then the messenger(s) may be unreliable also.

Re: a personal encounter with the supernatural
quote:"A devil or evil entity, if real, would not want all of you guys to be believers if that would, in fact, change theology and expose this entity for what he/she/it is."
Why not? Is he/she/it embarassed for some reason? And if God is really in control of things why doesn't HE allow the entity(s) to come out of their "hiding-place" once & for all so we can all see what their up to? Or, shall we announce very loudly, "Hey, demons & other strange entities, God is using you to try to make us humans miserable. What do you say to that?"
