@anonymously99stwin,
Satan is the bs we blame for our own shortcomings (as we or our society perceives them ). It is a dark power that seduces us into what lands us into ruin and at the end of the day we regard it as an outside source and easier to swallow .....in this way we don't feel quite as dirty or guilty.

@Germlat,
I don't blame Satan for ****.

I blame myself.

Everyone is different. Experiences different fucked up **** in life.

The ability to understand is extremely important. It is. Having the right teachers throughout life is a plus.

@anonymously99stwin,
I'm not referring to you but to the hypocritical stance of Christian America. Not all Christians either for that matter.

I was throwing myself out there.

That thing called conversation.

Satan? By the Christian Bible:
The fallen angel, once so beautiful he was second only to God.
Bu he was jealous of God's power and he tried to overthrow God.
God therefore banished him, and Lucifer became Satan, incarnation of evil. However, the bible says he can sometimes look as an angel of light, disguising his evils. And the bible also says to be on the lookout, 'For he roams around like a roaring lion, seeking those who he can devour'.

We capitalize to indicate the quintessential rebel, the original resistor.


So what's his real name? Cheney maybe?

Wouldn't it be odd if God made a mistake in programming Human Beings when he created them, they became corrupt on their own due to faulty programming and God was too egotistical to take responsibility so he just threw Lucifer under the bus?

Nor Torquemada. His real name, never mentioned, is fated to be forgotten.

You could call giving us free will a mistake, especially if you prefer robothood.

seriously tho, people give satan way too much credit for mans crap. If the devil used his free will to turn on his god, how comes people seem to think mankind are incapable of doing the same thing on their own. I imagine the devils best ploy would be to watch man blame him for everything, never taking accountability got their own evils.

Interesting point Dal. You know, that reminds me, its been said that Humanity doesnt need Satan,(or the concept of,) since it can do bad enough on its own. So perhaps Satan is really just a symbol or representative of evil, instead of being the cause of [evil]. But you did bring up an interesting topic; I'm looking forward to seeing more posts on this particular topic.

@InkRune,
It is a good point indeed, but evil cannot be measured as it is not a thing, but a lack of a thing. Like cold is not measurable, as it is our word for a lack of heat, evil is our word for a lack of goodness.
I see the devil working the world over, rather than sitting on every mans shoulder.
A magicians greatest tools are misdirection and illusion, all the devil needs to do is to make Gods will/requirements/standards seemingly disappear. Id say he has done a remarkable job don't you?

Not much chance of him being forgotten as long as "Christians" and "Christian politicians" keep him right out front in people's consciousness so they can influence and maintain control. He's too valuable as a boogeyman for humans to allow him to be forgotten.

And he had a whole new lease of life in British comics.

@blueveinedthrobber,
Well, Satan is simply a title, a word meaning rebel or resistor. Whatever name this inbdividual once had is not known. IMO, it will never be known.
