The references to the "Nine Hells" and the "Abyss" appear to be based on the occult views of the universe propounded by dungeons and dragons players. I suspect this article has been written as a joke. The Bible mentions one Hell and the "Abyss" is merely a synonym for it used in some (but not all) versions of the Bible, not a separate place. It's dungeons and dragons appears to treat the Nine Hells and the Abyss as different places. --JesusSaves 23:51, 11 March 2007 (EDT)

Or Dante. He wrote a book about it. Perhaps you've heard of it. It's called Inferno. It preceded Dungeons and Dragons by a couple of hundred years. Godman 17:40, 17 March 2007 (EDT)
This article should be merged with Fallen angels. After all, they're both the same. ScorpionTell me what you think 19:08, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
No, fallen angels seem to be quite different things. All fallen angles may be demons, but not all demons are fallen angels. And Godman was right, Dante's Inferno (Not a book, but the first third of a poetic trilogy) popularised the circles of hell concept. Im going to quickly rough out some stub sections here that can be used as a guide to improve the article. - Suricou

Demons and angels

Cut from intro:

Demons are not to be confused with fallen angels or the Devil, which are similar creatures but not wholly the same.

If they are not fallen angels, then did the pre-exist the fall? Who created them? Or did the exist from "the beginning" along side of God?

We should not make such a definite pronouncement - especially under the guise of removing confusion. Better to say who promotes this distinction between demons and angels.

Are there any religions which say that angels can "fall"? If so, which ones? --Ed Poor 09:35, 21 May 2007 (EDT)

I am quite sure there is a difference between demons and fallen angels. While a host of fallen angels does serve Satan, demons are soulless creatures created by Satan. That is the way I was taught. Mellie 15:48, 8 August 2007 (EDT)
That's not, to the best of my knowledge, a Biblical view. Do you mind if I ask what church or institution tought you this theory? I'm always interested in learning more about where different theologies come from and which group or denomination holds them. Thanks Learn together 02:37, 14 August 2007 (EDT)
