What Are Demons?

demonA demon (also called a fiend) is defined as an evil spirit or devil. According to Merriam-Webster (a free searchable dictionary and thesaurus), the first known use of the term “demon” was in the early 13th century. You have probably already heard of the term “daemon”, which is an archaic spelling of demon. These little supernatural and creepy-looking beings are especially described as being malicious, with the ability to possess a human, or act as a tormentor in hell. Demons are prevalent in religion, occultism, literature, fiction, and of course, mythology and folklore. According to Wikipedia, in the Greek New Testament of the Christian Bible, the term “demon” appears 63 times. read more

Creepy Creatures In Mythology

Creepy Creatures In Mythology

Are you a big fan of mythological beasts? We put together a list of 8 creepy creatures that are found in folklore. The origins of some of these weird beasts are found in writings from the Middle Ages time period. They are certainly non-historical and occasionally involve the supernatural. However, some of them are believed to be real creatures that actually exist. For example, many people believe Bigfoot is a real animal that currently roams the Earth.

Although these guys are purely fictional characters, there may be alien life somewhere in the cosmos that could actually resemble them. However, they probably don’t possess the same magical powers that some of these beasts do. Then again, who really knows? Scientists are definitely working diligently to find life. Hopefully they will discover another civilization outside our solar system in the near future. Let’s get started with the legendary Medusa. read more

5 Extreme Animal Oddities

Just like humans can suffer from human oddities, so can animals. The animal kingdom has a variety of interesting species. Unfortunately, sometimes during their stages of natural development, something goes wrong. The animal can have a condition that sets them far apart from the rest. They may have defects and limited abilities, but some are still able to live average life spans.  Of course, animals can also become an oddity from the result of interbreeding between species.

Although it is believed that there are around 950,000 species of insects on our planet, until 2011, the number of species of animals was still unknown.  It was once estimated that there are about 3-30 million.  According to the Census of Marine Life scientists, the total number of species in the world is said to be around 8.7 million with a 1.3 million give or take.  This includes all animals, plants, fungi, protozoa and chromista.   Of the 8.7 million species, 7.77 million are animals. read more
