    They are one and the same.
    They are the negative which pollutes the positives.

    The main difference between Evil Spirits and Demons are their origins -  to put it simply. Evil spirits have normally been in physical human form*, demons have never been born into the physical planes, but have their source elsewhere - they can however manifest in various ways in the physical realms.

    Having said this, I don't totally dismiss the theory that many cases of evil spirits/discarnate humans do have demonic forces working through them - a case of like attracting  like. It is similar to the theory that people who have health issues such as addictions, alcoholism etc.. have at the route of their problem some form of 'demonic force'.

    As a final thought, I do feel that within humans there is the potential for evil that does not have its origins with demons or anything else. Sadly, this dark area is totally human using 'demons' as an excuse in order that we can escape facing the reality of our own darkness. This darkness within may well be like a beacon that attracts evil spiritual forces.

    Hope this helps.

    *Evil spirits can also have other forms other than human/demonic but this would sidetrack your question too much.

    More concrete answers can be found in the writings attributed to Enoch. He tells us that the fallen angels of Genesis, the Watchers or Grigori, their children, when they died, became evil spirits. He said that the Grigori, themselves, are held in ever chains beneath the earth in darkness in a place called Tartarus until judgement. We know that the angels that fell with Satan are classified as demons. Now, in seeking salvation, does it really matter? We treat them all the same. They all flee at the name of Jesus. We rebuke them in the name of Jesus. And, we cast them out in the name of Jesus.

    There is a difference dark spirits are ghost or poltergeist and can not leave the residence in which in resides. Now demons on the other hand are beautiful and seductive to lure people towards them. They are beautiful and very deceptive. They can go into any public place. They are charming and intelligent.

    A demon is a non-physical entity that exists in a lower vibrational plane which is absent of positives. An evil spirit is not necessarily eviil but may be a spirit that is earthbound and unable to cross over due to addictive emotional and traumatic ties here on earth. Once the spirit has let go of those ties it will realize it has passed on and will move into a higher plane. Demons are not so lucky. They must exist in a place absent of goodness and pleasure for it pains them to be anywhere there is light. They feed on negative emotions and energy often unknowingly given to them by a host or person they are trying to influence and feed from.

    It's all been created through ADVANCES IN TECHNOLOGY.  A group of "dog-people" obey binaural commands that can mimic ANY human emotion/physical sensation.  They use ELECTRONIC HARASSMENT to destabilize your mind so that it breaks down psychologically, opening them to be "re-educated" just like any BRAINWASHING VICTIM.  I used to be a Jehovah's Witness and some of them complained about being "molested by demons".  My belief that this was the work of this rapacious, mind-controlled/mind-controlling group trying to recruit new members through psychological warfare and ELECTRONIC HARASSMENT.  For more information on this awful scourge upon our nation, look at my other hubs!

    They are the same. They are 2 kinds of spirits. Fallen angels and demons(Demons are half man half human. In the bible, the fallen angels mated with the daughters on men, which produced demons.) There is no such thing as a human ghost because fallen angels masquerade as human beings. In the bible even the angels of God masquerade as humans, so it is not to a surprise that fallen angels can do the same. Based on ghost stories, I would say that the demons are more aggresive when it comes to haunting. Fallen angels are just there to DECEIVE for their leader, the devil, is a GREAT deceiver.

    it is believed that demons are non-earthly by origin...that is according to bible god created many angels....to help us..... most of them are our friend but some sinned....... such sinned angels were thrown out of the heaven....such angels are called demons or fallen angel...... definitely they are more powerful and directly affects human mind.....
    but when the term ghost, spirit (good or bad) or poltergeist are used that means it is saying about human spirit......human residuals after death........

    you can check out my hub...."Are ghosts and demons real??" for more information....

    Evil spirits- tainted by hatred , and twisted by anger ,
    where the demon is concerned it is  more of a natural born evil .

    demons are creatures that live in a dark dimention aka Hell. They can take over a human's body and go to the human world where we live

    Evil spirits are just the angry and depressed souls of human who have already died.
    The only thing they have in common is that they both can posses a huma's body.

    P.S: Evil spirits can live around us without being seen
    I hpe this answered your question wink

    Evil is every thing that exist in this world and harm others. Spirits are good and bad. Demons are controlers of people lives. Religions are good. They cast bad things out .Baptism and exorcism are good .Prayers are good too.
