• The Devil maligned?

    This picture has been doing the facebook rounds. It made me chortle, but also made me think about the devil, and hell. Much of my thoughts on hell have been expressed in the video below, but there are few interesting points that have come up recently which have made me think, aha, that’s interesting.

     

     

    The Devil seems to be, perhaps, a little maligned. He has done a lot less damage than God, and it’s not as if he is omnioptent to do anything about it. God is the one in the driving seat.

    Of course, he doesn’t exist, and makes no sense within a framework of an omniGod. Why would God keep on with Satan? Being omnipotent, he could snuff him out in a second. There is so much wrong with the concept it appears almost philosophically infantile.

     

     

    This video shows another very interesting slant on the topic. Be warned, this video contains swearing, and lots of. But it is very funny. If you are pressed for time, listen from about 1.24 for the relevant hell section:

     

     

    If Satan does exist, and he digs evil, then surely he would be more than happy that people would be going to hell. He would really dig your behaviour. He wouldn’t be punishing you, he’d be celebrating you!

      I posted before that Satan is the only supernatural being worth knowing. He never lied although the omni-everything gawd has on a number of occasions, He conned the omni-everything gawd into a $1 bet over some schmuck, and told the omni-everything gawd that humans aren’t worth the trouble, only killed 10 people rather then 2.5million, and supposedly he convinced some woman to think for herself and be curious about the world.
      So yes go ahead and give me a compliment by calling me Satan, its better then being compared to the psychopathic, petulant, spoiled 5yr-old, bearded sky-faery who raped a 14yr-old girl.

      Listened to the HELL video and yes I’ve been told that Hell is a place of eternal torment because from Hell you can ‘see’ the glory of gawd but cannot be in its glory which makes the torment even worse.
      Well I have lived in pain for over 20yrs and have got use to it and deal with the situation–EH! no big deal. I have viewed on many occasions the glory of Anjolina Joli and not been able to be ‘IN’ her glory and have managed to deal with the intense sorrow of that. Hell does not seem to be much worse, Besides I looking forward to joining Hitch as ‘we sing with the drunken angels on the merry side of Hell.’
