Evil Possessions cause werewolves to transform?
You think that werewolves are the ultimate evil under straight command from the devil???!!! This is a huge statement!!!
I will get to this in a minute, but first let me address infection vs. possession:
Since it is true that werewolves do transform under the full moon – and there are very few legends that dont conform to this theory – then we can say with pretty definite certainty that there is no question the moon has something to do with the transformation. But I’m not quite ready to say yet that it’s a demonic possession…think about this….Have you heard that during the full moon there are many more accidents and crimes than normal? Have you heard that sometimes people (normal human people) act very strange during the full moon – getting in bad moods or funks that they’re usually free from the rest of the month? The moon and it’s cycles influence normal people! Well, instead of a possession…could it just be that the werewolf infection is causing the person to have an increased sensitivity to the moon’s influence? Thus, when the moon comes out, anyone that is “infected” will be heavily influenced by the moon – which might appear to be a possession, but really is not!
Just think about that for a minute.
Now, if I do decide to go along with you for a minute and say ok, a werwolf transforms because he is possessed. I still do not say that he has no soul! Let’s go back to the rabid dog for example. Rabies is an illness of the central nervous system causing an inflammation of the brain. It can be spread by saliva through bites. It causes animals (or humans) to act abnormal…and sometimes to act aggressive…it causes headaches and fevers and itching and pain…hallucinations, and confusion…. now, if you were a rabid dog going through this, of course you would not be able to be reasoned with!! you’re hallucinating and in pain so of course there will be no reasoning with you! but this does not mean that you have no soul! or that your soul has been possessed by evil. It merely means that you are very, very sick with the rabies virus.
I agree the infection starts with the werewolf virus…but I am still not so certain that it is the devil that takes over. Give me proof it is and evil possession that takes over! Proof! SLAP!
