Dishonesty on part of Creationist Group Run by a Protestant? + Discussion of Apollo the Delphic

Hans-Georg Lundahl
Yes, here is one of the Biblical indications that Apollo is for real - as in a real demon.

Hans-Georg Lundahl
I think I posted another comment here, on back when I read Latin, Aeneid VI, for a Dozent who is also a Catholic priest, and he brought up above after the description of the Cumaean sibyl had been read (a description of her being acutely possessed by Apollo, inspired by real scenes Virgil must have seen), and noting the above passage.

Was I misplacing this comment under another thread, or was some moderator deleting it?

Mark Jonczy
I fail to see the relevance. Scripture says what it says.

Hans-Georg Lundahl
"possessed with a spirit of divination" = St Luke's words.

Aeneid VI shows a person in a similar position, getting possessed (while Virgil hadn't been in Cumae in Aeneas' time, he had seen sibyls) and Aeneid VI tells us the name of THE generic spirit of divination : Apollo.

In other words, this is one of the places where the Bible identifies the false god Apollo as a demon.
