Random question: baby demons

A discussion from the other day lead me to ask a question, and since I received no answer, I decided to ask you. I do have a couple of theories, but I'd love to hear your thoughts.

So...

Where do baby demons come from?

What are baby demons?

The fear of not having one?

Yah--what are baby demons? Never heard of them. ???

Iggy & Rita:
Well, for the discussion we were having, "demonic infants" would be the definition. However, you can define it however you like and the question still remains. Though I suppose the answer would be different depending on your chosen definition. Then again, perhaps it doesn't matter? You decide!

I don't think demons are, or have ever been, infants. Fallen angels, fallen from grace, doomed for eternity.

I'm not sure I believe any baby is a demon (or possessed) - I think "bad babies" grow up that way.

But --- where do babies come from -- meaning their souls... now that is an interesting question (even though I've no answer!) I've sometimes envisioned a long waiting line in the "other world" (maybe heaven?) of spirits ready to "come to the Earth".

I doubt the actual "mechanism" of self-awareness/consciousness (sentient life?) requires any pre-existing "soul"... the act that creates life could create the "soul".

Do we actually have an "incorporeal essence"?

One could argue that even if we do, given we "don't remember" previous lives (in a clear way), the question might be moot.

Hi! Have you read Witch's Daughter? Thought of you while I did. A Lot about sahmain and all those holidays you celebrate. I thought I'd recommend it to you!

Jeannie & Iggy:
Interesting answers...

Nikki:
No, I haven't; who's the author?
