Well according to the sermon my pastor gives,he once shared an experience of exorcism of another pastor.
According to him, all they do is pray, that's all.
And I doubt lifting the cross would have any powers for people often mistook the cross as something holy but its just a symbol.

Exorcism seems like a scary job. Taking "care" of the ghosts and all. But still, it is indeed interesting.

well im catholic so exorcism to me means where the church gets rid of you
in the catholic church u have a baptism, commmunion and confirmation
in these ceromonies you are welcomed into the church by candles being lit and bells being rung to announce your arrival into the faith.
where your excorcised the bells ring dureing the ceromony and the cadles are lit and the mass is said in latin but then the bells are stopped and the candles are quenced.
by this your no longer alive in the face of the catholic church and every catholic is meant to blank you

Yeah I believe in exorcisms, and in demonic possesion. I'm Catholic, and I believe that only the priests who are exorcists should perform them. Probably the most known exorcism I know about is the one of Anneliese Michel. Google her name, or look for it on youtube. I know they have recorded the exorcisms on tape, I listened to it. I't really scary. The move "Exorcism of Emily Rose", is based on her story.

I think exorcism is a nicer way of naming what ghost busters do. :]

I believe they're true. Not just because I'm catholic, but there is just so much information on deamonic possession and exorcisms from millenia ago to modern day.
I don't think it has to be a deamon specifically, but any spirit that can possess you. (I think it's a little short-sighted to assume it's a deamon)
I can't say I know much on the topic, but it has a specific ritual, but there's more than one obviously, since many different cultures have exorcists. I have never been possessed, but I'm pretty sure I've felt spirits before. It's kinda weird feeling...

On as side note, if anyone likes exorcism movies and stuff, I'd suggest the anime series Mokke. It's pretty good.

It's funny how I came across this topic. I just saw Paranormal Activity yesterday, and it had a little bit of exorcism in it too. I've never encountered demon or ghost before. I don't know anyone who had also, but I do believe there is such thing. Wait... I can recall a friend of mine talking about her cousin had a paranormal encounter. They claimed she was possessed but I don't know for sure. I do believe demon possessions of humans are true. Okay, well some people believed exorcism is fake. And those who claimed they have them are just faking. Why would someone fake about being possessed? That's very disturbing to hear. You know, if there are ghosts, there's a good possibility of demons. Call me crazy but whatever.

Exorcisim and Posession is very real...You know when it takes 8 guys to hold 1 skinny lady down that its not her strength pushing everyone off her like they were weightless..(Happend in my church)....The lady used to practice santeria and yeah just one day started cursing out the pastor during a church service and cursing God...spitting and puking, iono it was intense..they made all the kids leave the church (I was 8)...but I remember we were all peeking through the crack of the door to watch...it's intense stuff ~.~;;

I believe in exorcism, and demons. It's really scary; things that are supernatural, just things that you can't explain, they interest me.

It doesn't overly concern me if whether exists or not.

I really don't buy it, I mean these ideas about exorcisms and demons were around before Psychology existed (I'm sure there were "psychologists" before the term existed but you know what I mean)
Imagine what people thought in the Middle Ages when they saw a person who had seizures or schizophrenia? what is the easiest "answer"? A demon or something supernatural. We humans imagine a lot of things, especially when we hit an intellectual wall because our current knowledge is limited so we cannot comprehend it, but we also have a limited imagination. Why do you think the popular ideas about what aliens look like are so lame? (standing up right, with two eyes in front and even five fingers...come on give me a break)
Same thing with Stigmata, as soon as some scientists started saying that the nails were located on the wrists and not in the palms, that same year people who "had" stigmata all of a sudden had their wounds in the wrists, kind of strange don't you think? considering that previous cases had their wounds in the palms.

There is the possibility that these things exists but I think is very small and very different from what popular culture and people who use this to get money portray.


speaking of psychology, Some possessions could be explained by ESP, or a form of telekinesis- moving stuff with the mind. People could simply be using ESP subconsciencly. peace over war
