Apparently the Americans who got into Witch finding used Matthew Hopkins's book The Discovery of Witches as inspiration.

Are you talking about native Americans?? Yes add them to that whacky group as well. Some of the earliest cave drawings in all parts of the world depict what you mention and you single out Americans?? That's interesting.

Those earliest cave paintings from tens of thousands of years ago, and posters from several hundred years ago don't equate to the here and now.

OK. I can see this argument turning into parsing what exactly and evil spirit is. Exactly who believes in them, percentages, demographics, etc. and so on. So............I'll just say, OK leccy

Maybe Norman will post some pics of his witch girlfriends from back in the day. They probably have mild facial burns from the gunpowder flashes.

Well, that may be true, but we keep the worst of these "demons, evil spirits, and the like" isolated as much as possible in our National Demon Reserve located in Washington D.C., until we can find a way to send them back from whence they came.

Only ever had one girlfriend, Knife - and I'm still married to her after 43 years!

Would you like to 'discuss' that comment with her? (Hint: Answer 'No'!)

Correction: that was RELIGION killing old lady's to maintain their power.

Then, speaking to His disciples, He said of the Pharisees, "All their works they do to be seen by men" ( Matthew 23:5).
