Default Do you consider magic demonic?

No poll, just answer the question and give why if you like

I don't know about demonic, but, any attempt to invoke superstitions/the supernatural that is inconsistent with my faith's fundamental theology is a no from me, dawg (other than if done for entertainment/in jest).

ETA: Not to be construed as invalidating other major faith's theologies. I'm talking about horoscope/witchcraft/ouija board/cultist $#!+.

Define "magic". Like, pulling a rabbit out of a hat?

I would also look to define "demonic". Are we talking a synonym for "evil"? Or that one believes in the spirits out to destroy all that is good in the world?

Assuming by magic you mean sleight of hand types of tricks, no.

If instead you mean you are literally changing the fundamental nature of the world, I would say yes, but only if it's real, which I doubt.

It's all Strange.

As in Strange with a PhD.




Or maybe Strange with an M.D.

I don't believe in magic.







Well, perhaps in a young girl's heart.

No. Magic is just a means to an end. "Wouldst thou like the taste of butter?"
