Re: the jinn
Maybe I may give some info.
The Quran writes that some jinns listened to the Quran and believed it:
"The Jinn 1 - Say: It has been revealed to me that a party of the jinn listened, and they said: Surely we have heard a wonderful Quran,
2 - Guiding to the right way, so we believe in it, and we will not set up any one with our Lord"
I think these are some great symbols and metaphors. And I wouldn't be surprised to see these are literally correct, as I wrote before every nation, every society have their myths & beliefs about some different beings than human - aliens, jinns, shaitans, vampires, some giant beings etc etc. When you look at these stories, you see a lot of common points.
By the way, I would like to learn some detailed info for 8 jinn types too.
