Demons & Jinn

Recently I saw a survey saying that America carries an unlikely hallmark. A highly educated society here still believes in religious superstitions including the existence of witches and demons! Religious tales have their own ways of lingering on for millennia!

Gospel of Mark
Legion - a fairy tale

5:8 For he (Jesus) said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
5:9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
5:12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.
5:13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand) and were choked in the sea.

Another questionable belief (among hundreds)
Gospel of Luke
All this never happened

21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
21:32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
22:30 That ye [disciples] may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Just one more fairy tale
Book of Daniel

4:31 While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, ----; The kingdom is departed from thee.
4:33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, ----, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.
4:37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, ----: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.
