    Most people do not know that J.K. Rowling is a witch. The first 5 books of Harry Potter ARE demonic.

    She received all 5 books in a vision while riding on a train. Later, all she did was type out the story.

    Frankenstein, man creating life with just lightning and parts, was a dream. Look for an article called "Inventions that came in dreams: largest collection." It has many examples of books, songs, etc., that came in dreams. Even the idea for Google was a dream.

    Then, watch the free video series, "They Sold Their Souls for Rock 'n Roll" to learn about the demonic activity in the lives of famous rockers.

    Do warlocks and witches exist? YES.

      Please tell me this post is meant to be sarcastic, because if it isn't.... wow.

      This is not sarcasm. Look for a blog post titled "Inventions that Came in Dreams: Largest Collection on the Internet." It lists many famous songs, inventions, books, ideas, and breakthroughs that came in dreams.

    No, Hogwarts is not real.

    Yes, people who identify themselves as witches and warlocks exist.  But no, there is no solid evidence of which I am aware that they possess any abilities even remotely similar to those in J.K. Rowling's series.

    I think this is a pretty good discussion on the 'Potter perplex':

    As to real witches and warlocks, a good place to start is this article on Wicca:

    As far as I know, there is no "school" kids can go to for the study of witchcraft. Go go any nation on Earth and you can find those who are involved in it though. Harry Potter is presented in a fun and whimsical way but the followers of witchcraft I've happened to run into during my life were anything but fun.

    Of course it is all just fantasy and nothing more.
    Rowling spent many years coming up with the Harry Potter character and many more getting it published. Were she really in possession of some witch powers she would have written it in a month or so and gotten it published straight away.
    There is a very good movie about her story that gives great insight into her beginnings.
    She is not a witch nor is there anything demonic about the books or their stories. They are simply very well written fantasy stories set in a background of a fictitious world that contains elements from minor horror to outright comedy.
    I really don't get the people who think there is something horrible about either the author or her works.
    It was mostly started by religious zealots, mostly Christians, no big surprise there.
    My personal take on them is that their faith in their religion is so fragile that they think something so benign as a children's fantasy book could crack their glass cocoon.
    The fact that authors write about some subject doesn't mean that they have any further involvement. I write about murder, serial killing, torture even a bit of bestiality has popped up. But I'm not a murderer, rapist, gang member or arsonist and I certainly don't practice any form  of bestiality, nor do I promote or admire any such things.
    Rowling's works simply contain all the story traits that make good books and movies, as do the works of most successful authors.
    Speculation that she is a witch or that her books are going to convert children into practicing witchcraft are just plain silly.

    Yeah Hogwarts is real!!. Once I accidentally hit a pillar in railway station and went there. Met Harry, Hermione and shook hands with them. They were friendly and lovable. You really need to go there at least once.
