Fallen Angels, Originators of Evil on Planet Earth?

 If you buy into the initial statement of the problem, but not the
theory of demonic time-sharing, then that would explain why demonic
possession is a relatively rare phenomenon in modern times compared
to ages past. The number of deamons have remained relatively
constant, while the human population has soared, so deamons are
spread thin and percentage of the population who are deamon
possessed has fallen.
 But I don't believe that the deamon population is constant: there
are lots being generated on computers every day, and I'll bet that
some of them have escaped! ( Maybe they don't actually die when
you 'kill' them! )
