We're assuming Aliens exist, and they debate is that they're actually demons. Firstly we must understand Pros position and define what a demon is, and the term alien must also be investigated. I will produce an argument from reason based on these terms, and allow Pro to refute or post their-own argument.


Demon: an evil spirit or devil, especially one thought to possess a person or act as a tormentor in hell.

Alien: Supposedly from another world; extraterrestrial

Since I have nothing else to go on, I shall use the definitions above which I feel correctly match Pros opening statement.


Argument from reason.
The term demon is used to define a spiritual presence that belongs to the supernatural world. For example sake, if demons are negative, and angels positive, then how can Pro instantly assert the unknown extraterrestrial is a negative and not a positive? By definition the term alien means unknown from another world.

Conclusion.
Pros argument falls down is when he asserts aliens are demons without enough evidence to disprove other possibilities. If demons are aliens, then we must also factor in the positive (or opposite) of a demon, which increases possibilities instead of reducing. This also doesn't disprove various spirits or explanations either.
