Demonic possession?

I just randomly started thinking about the film "The Exorcism of Emily Rose"... Do you believe that demonic possession is real and actually caused by demons, or would you rather believe it to be psychological and think that it is cause by some sort of neurosis? I really don't know what to believe. I have seen and experienced things that I don't think can be explained by science, but then again I try to think logically as much as I can. Where do you stand?

there are cases of psychiatric conditions that do have some things in commen with possesions, but there are others that are like nothing else. I don't think it's demons though, there are creatures much worse, though many take them for demons. I've been studying about this one place not far from where i live with a very colorfull history and when investigators whent to film it and look what's there, they were beaten up by something they couldn't see. cameras were throuwn out of their hands, they were tossed around. Many belive there are spirits without body, they can go into bodies of others living creatures and even machenes if they want, but they don't have to, they can stay in spirit form. Those spirits refer to themselves differently, but most commonly they call themselves "host" from what i read so far. Cases are countless, just need to know where to look for them. There are many freaky places here in Ling Island and i love investigating them myself as well as reading findings of others. I've seen many strange things there, but haven't vitnesed pessetion first hand yet, i try to stay away from the situations where posession is possible for my own safety.

I am very interested in hearing more about this and would like to do some research on it, do you have any additional information like web links where I can research this?

I believe that this things are real, no matter how what science or skeptics say. I don't even need to see a real exorcism or ghost possession... The Exorcism of Emily Rose is enough to keep me awake for three days!

i have not encounter any exorcism acts but i am pretty sure it is caused by demons.well some has also connected with mentally ill people or schizophrenic patients.they have hallucination,illusion,paranoia.but i believe exorcism is different from neurosis.there is not basis where exorcism originated.

I have seen schizophrenia first hand as well, and while these people do have really bad issues, I think demonic possession is really different!
