Now, this is scary . . .

ACCORDING TO Bruce Wilson at AlterNet, “Almost Two-Thirds of 18-29 Year Olds Believe in "Demon Possession" What Is Happening to America?”. Just like in medieval times, superstition is probably eternal.
Over one half (63 percent, to be exact) of young Americans 18-29 years old now believe in the notion that invisible, non-corporeal entities called "demons" can take partial or total control of human beings, revealed an October 2012 Public Policy Polling survey that also showed this belief isn't declining among the American population generally; it's growing.

I blame the plethora of stupid "ghost hunter" shows on what are supposed to be "science" channels.

With any luck they're as apathetic as their counterparts in Canada and mostly don't vote.

And if the same ignorance is at work up here I'm glad they stay away from the polling places on election days.

These young people are looking for something to believe in. Faith based organizations aren't working for them. Society isn't working for them. Their chances of good jobs is minimal. They sit home and vanish into another realm, one whichoffers escape from reality. Of course American education isn't that great and there isn't much emphasis on science.
