Mass Hysteria or Demon Possession
Hello everyone! Before anything else, let me point out the point straight. This article will either make things clear about the two variables on the topic or could add more confusion instead. Either way, both ideas will surely make your mind a hard time and will let you decide which is which according to the situation. So, Let us begin this seasonal article.
Perhaps most of us love to debate, especially regarding our beliefs, things we think are true, and things that we can't even understand. We are aware that science and supernatural explanation do not in any way discuss a phenomenon from the same point of view. The reason for their opposite aspects is that science explains everything in a systematically logical way with sufficient supporting physical evidence. In contrast, supernatural explanation, on the other hand, explains particular events through knowledge or beliefs passed down through generations that somehow make sense and that in a single glance will likely convince anyone, this way explanation becomes strong and arguably make sense to be accepted as truth. The question is, which will you choose to believe in? Which of them will you consider as authentic and sophisticated, and which will you ignore?
It's probably a waste of time to write outdated trends but surely this makes sense for I know that some of you aren't that normal, I guess you know what I'm talking about.
Remember the case of Emily Rose? What about the news pointing to Clarita Villanueva? Do these incidents ring a bell? Yes, these two incidents perhaps are both popular incidents throughout the world. During their time when these two incidents became popular, one as a horror drama based on a true story, and one as a breaking news article that reach the whole world. They said that it was demonic possession.
A demonic possession because no doctor even the best psychiatrist can explain what's really happening to them. In the case of Emily Rose, her parents took her to specialists, however, it took her a long time to take her medicines but it was no good and so her parents ended up seeking help from a parish priest. In the end, Emily died, and soon after the parish priest was accused of her death. It's disappointing though that even if someone who's just trying to help couldn't suppress his unidentified enemy from its host up to the extent of its precious life. Furthermore, the specialists who initially examine the victim claimed that Emily failed to take her medicines consistently which worsen her condition. This story will let you dive deeply into not just your sleeping critical thinking but rather your deep sense of justice and spiritual sense as well. Now, in this story, which side will you go to? What for you is the best explanation for this? Will the victim be saved through continuous medicine intake which according to her makes her condition much worse instead, or was this event truly a case of demonic possession that seek exorcism at the worst time when the hosts have finally reached the line between life and death? I will leave the decision to you.
The story of Clarita Villanueva on the other hand somehow relates to the first story, fortunately, she overcomes the struggle and managed to have a good life. Since this is not a storytelling work, I'll just let you have your time to read her full story so kindly take time to read or watched it online if possible.
So, When a group of people suddenly shows unnecessary actions usually violent reactions such as seizure, running amok, shouting bad words including cursing, and murmuring in unknown languages, what do you think is it called? Is it possession or mass hysteria? Well, it depends on who is judging the scenario.
A person with a background in advanced and formal education might say it's a mass hysteria or a group of people acting like wild beasts without any certain cause. Of course, they might say that this event sometimes needs psychological treatment.
Others might say, oh! it's a demon or a spirit or an elemental entity that possesses them which might become probable because of the foreign and perhaps a relic language they suddenly murmured which of course others might be surprised especially if no one from the victim has spoken that language from the very start. Furthermore, the fact that they will quickly react to someone with the so-called power to cast out evil like healers, and exorcists upon their arrival sounds rare for a person that is claimed to be in a state of mental disturbance by the psychiatrist. I honestly don't know who's telling the truth. How about you guys? Any ideas about which one is true when this happens in front of you? You have the power to decide.
Whether it's psychiatric problem or a true case of demonic possession, one thing is for sure, and I guess we all agree with this, "have a strong bond and faith in God and we will all be save". With that, I bid you all fare well, and let's discuss another topic next time. Thank you!
