Do Witches & Wizards Exist? I Don't Think So! by Seun(m): 4:05pm On Nov 06, 2016
A witch or wizard is a person who has been granted supernatural powers by 'the devil' and uses them to perpetrate evil against other people.

I don't believe that 'the devil' exists. I don't believe that supernatural powers exist. Consequently, I don't believe witches could possibly exist.

When I read about women and children being beaten and killed for "witchcraft", I feel terrible because I know they're certainly innocent of any supernatural “crimes”.

Do you disagree with me? If so, please share with me the evidence you've come across that has convinced you that witchcraft is real. Thanks.

If the devil doesn't exist, then Jesus doesn't exist, and so does God also, including Allah.

No amount of believe makes something a fact.

I don't believe that 'the devil' exists. I don't believe that supernatural powers exist. Consequently, I don't believe witches could possibly exist.

When I read about women and children being beaten and killed for "witchcraft", I feel terrible because I know they're almost certainly innocent.

The fear of witchcraft is directly linked to the general education of the populous. The more educated the population of an area is the less witches they perceive and vice versa.
Africans think they are the ones that started witch hunting. But the truth is compared to the Europeans we were all learners, yes the white people once believed strongly in witchcraft. The Malleus Maleficarum translated as The hammer of witches is arguably the most damning text in all of literature. Written in 1486 by Catholic Inquisitors, it prescribed how to kill, torture and identify witches. And for almost 200 years it was the best selling book second only to the Bible. The book with sponsorship from the Pope killed tens of thousands of women accused of witchcraft.
But today people in Europe are smarter and no one talks of witches again. Why?
Education my friends is a mind opener.

I strongly doubt. Even those people that sell body parts usually do it to make ends meet. They are very poor and it's likely they went into such nonsense as a last resort. When they are caught do they magically disappear from the police undecided

I believe they exist, but I don't believe they have supernatural powers from 'the gods' or from 'spirits', which I don't believe exist.

You've been there? If not, what makes you so sure that there are 'real' witches there? If so, what did you experience there that convinced you?

Magic comprise well organized tricks & illusions; targeted deception. So in essence, there's magic.

They are still there. They still practise it today. It's only pseudo- educated Africans who believe it doesn't exist.

Seun, You're a skeptical being who although knows the answer but always want to know the thoughts of others about issues.

I am that way too but I will answer your question nonetheless.

Witches are not demons and neither are they spirits as often portrayed by our infamous nolluwood movies.

Rather they are creatures, just like us. Humans who have communion with evil spirits. They plot and trade their crafts by manipulations and deception. If you're seeking for proof to know if witches do exist, you will find none as no gathering of witches will allow you sashay into their coven, taking pictures and vidoes of them or posing for selfies. Such persons will not live to tell the tales.

Witches don't transform into creatures as some believe, rather they have animals they keep as pets such as birds, owls, cats, reptiles etc that they comit their spirits into to move about.(all spirits can possess any body/flesh as long as the life is still in it.)

Let me stop here. Don't train your eyes to believ only what u see
