Yep, I was right. The pic is from season 2.

As for the member who goes by the moniker of DoctorWho? I believe he's still around, but I haven't seen him here in FYM in quite some time.
I think he got his feelings hurt here.




There is an interesting story behind that artist's rendition of the Satanic figure in the picture posted. If you're interested I can post a link or email it to you.

I was curious as to who would actually publish such crap, so I did some digging. The New Oxford Review is a religious publication, and not a peer-reviewed scientific journal.

Here's the link to the original article:

http://www.newoxfordreview.org/artic...0308-gallagher

I was also curious as to who this 'board certified psychiatrist' is, and what would prompt him to investigate such nonsense. This is at the beginning of the article:

Quote:
Richard E. Gallagher, M.D., is a board-certified psychiatrist in private practice in Hawthorne, New York, and Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at New York Medical College. He is also on the faculties of the Columbia University Psychoanalytic Institute and a Roman Catholic seminary. He is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Princeton University, magna cum laude in Classics, and trained in Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Gallagher is the only American psychiatrist to have been a consistent U.S. delegate to the International Association of Exorcists, and has addressed its plenary session.
So, he obviously has an interest in promoting a Catholic agenda.


Mystery solved. It's crap.

He's a realtor like you.

He's married, sane, calm successful man and had a type of OBE/dream where he found himself out of his body and in Hell for 23 minutes.

He claimed it was as real or more real than being here on Earth now.

The picture posted represents most accurately of what one of the demons that tormented him looked liked while he was in Hell.





http://www.spiritlessons.com/Documen...nHell_Text.htm

You can watch or listen to his account here:

http://www.spiritlessons.com/

Here's what he says to all ppl who are curious about what happened to him:


"Even if you don’t believe my story, I hope you will believe the Scriptures and avoid hell just the same."

People believe what they want to see. If all your life you've been planted with seeds of possessions, stigmatas, speaking in tongues, etc then you're going to look for those things very hard, and your mind will trick you into believing someone with autism that just repeated something they saw on the TV was a possession.

If you're actively looking for an alien spaceship than any light will spark your imagination. If you're looking for a conspiracy, you can easily find enough odd facts to allow you to believe you found one. If you're looking for a sign, anything can be manipulated into one...

Why should his dream mean anything to me? Honestly why should his dream be anymore important than the one I had last night.

And how did he know it was 23 minutes? Does hell have clocks?

Why don't read his story before you ridicule the man?

dbs

the fact that this man says he is a Realtor

and I possess a Real Estate Brokers license with the state of CA

is about as relevant as saying Charles Manson is the same astrological sign as you.



as for the scriptures
there is a lot there that one should not believe

and Hell is a man made concept




it's a known fact

Sorry Diamond, I know you're taking this seriously, but that was funny.

I've witnessed people in the throes of demon possession.

It's not pretty.
