93% of Christianity Today surfers believe in demons

Postby Rspaight » Fri Jan 28, 2005 9:49 am

Of course, this is an online poll, so the results may be heavily skewed by pranksters or whatever, so YMMV.

But, CT never struck me as a particularly extreme publication (they have a good, thoughtful piece on their home page on the dangers of mixing church and state, for example), which makes me wonder where the line gets drawn these days.

We like to think we've come a long way from the frightened grunters living in Paleolithic caves...but polls lilke the above prove we haven't.

Chuck thinks that I look to good to be a computer geek. I think that I know too much about interface design, css, xhtml, php, asp, perl, and ia (too name a few things) to not be one.

I wouldn't read *too* much into something so unscientific...

So does Pope John Paul (believes in demon possession, that is).
