For everyone, I just caught the highlights of tomorrow’s Dateline NBC explaining these words…
“Wednesday, an amazing NBC Special. Does the Devil really exist? Witness one man’s battle with a demon in a real-life exorcism, caught on tape. What do you believe? NBC Wednesday 8/7 central”
Folks, with what they showed right then and there, my first guess is that this man may actually be having COMPLEX PARTIAL SEIZURES. Please everyone, watch this show and give feedback to everyone you can imagine so the truth is spread out everywhere. Especially to NBC who is doing this show.

I appreciated that detailed report of the show. Since I didn't see it, I was interested in what the sensational media had to say about demons and exorcism. Most people with epilepsy know frightening images are common in seizures, and that the average person is completely ignorant of how intense these episodes can be. It's shows like this that lure viewers to watch such crap in order to boost their ratings and pad their pockets from their sponsors.
Let's face it, as long as there is ignorance and fear of epilepsy, people with epilepsy will be given labels.
When people see someone having a seizure, they don't think of a seizure as a disability that cannot be controlled -they think- Crazy Person, Psycho, Demon, Schizo, Anxiety Attack, Weirdo, Possessed. They are frightened and/or often repulsed. That's why....
We have to educate those around us.
