Belief in the Devil is what psychoanalysts call 'projection'. It betrays psychological naivety and a profound lack of self-knowledge.

The latter often arises from a justified fear of introspection. The believer is afraid to examine themselves rigorously because he or she is frightened of what might be discovered lurking within. Far safer to make up an imaginary fiend and project all one's aggressive, selfish and destructive behaviour on to it. 'The Devil made me do it.'

Like God, the Devil was a necessary invention.


Whatever you hippy. Yhwh stares into the abyss,and his reflection stares back. The inverted (right left, not up down) false image.

Personification is your hangup, and everyone else's.

That's because the devil is supposed to tempt people according to the abrahamic religions. Lying isn't a super power and the bible doesn't say he gave Jesus a Porsche to prove he could do it. In fact there's nothing in the bible that points to the devil being able to do anything other than talk.

I really didn't knew one of the worlds most famous musicians openly admitted this, until I found this video on youtube.



I know there will always be people who're going to say he meant something else. But for me, it is pretty damn obvious he means he sold his soul to the devil. God knows how many musicians made a bargain with "the chief commander"... But looking at todays music industry I think there are a lot more musicians who are following the same path.



What's your take on this?


Wow, the disinformationists have really come out in droves for this thread.

That's a sure fire sign that you're on to something. Don't let them discourage you.

Bob Dylan WAS subtly dropping dimes here. I'm sure he was dealt with for making this remark, on tv no less.

He hasn't said anything further about it, has he?

True enough, but there is also the possibility that he can do things, and does, to tempt people. All with a catch, of course, but possible. The devil is a fallen angel, after all and they do have powers beyond what we mere humans have.

And how was he 'dealt with'? They take his money, fame or his life? Maybe they beat him with rubber hoses or gave him a noogie. Such drama.

a mild or indirect word or expression substituted for one considered to be too harsh or blunt when referring to something unpleasant or embarrassing...



Dylan made an Allusion...voiced a Euphemism...
He did not make an Soul-Shattering Announcement of Absolute Truth....
he should know...he deals in poetic lyrics and thought-scapes for a living...

he only said he was pragmatic and dealt with the worldly powers-that-be on their Stage, in their Language, in their medium-of-exchange--------------------------- the poetic selling-of-Ones'-soul

Yes, I have seen this "confesion" many years ago... I assume Dylam is pulling the devil a fast one... When it is time to pay up Dylan will use his creativity with language to tell the devil he misunderstood.

But..seriously.. If Dylan say this, can you imagine how many more we do not know of did the same?

I do have the feel that it is mostly an american thing and it goes further than musicians. Politicians, medical doctors, engineers...all who can be usefull some day to be of service in order to create the ulitmate insult to God,.

Don't be naive.. Sure Dylan made a deal with something ..or someone...for something. That is a confirmation of what is happening in politics...on the world stage...with players on that level.

I think a lot of people think selling your soul to the devil means giving the devil control of your soul and he'll make you successful.

In actually selling your soul to the devil means giving up your creative license to a record label or entertainment company and allowing them to shape you into a profitable brand.

So selling your soul to the devil doesn't mean making a deal with the devil, it means giving up your creative license to an entity for profit.

For example, say you're a singer that sings gospel, but after the labels look at their data they decide that you shouldn't sing gospel and should instead be a gangster rapper. You would be selling your soul to the devil so you can become a star and be rich and famous.

If you have the talent and aren't emotionally attached to your art and know the right people selling your soul to the industry isn't a bad deal if that's what you want out of life though.

I once hoisted a few beers with the devil at Toronto's 'Chick’N’Deli'. Seemed like a nice guy. My fellow Canucks oughtta get this.

Well if that raspy voiced Dylan did in fact sell his soul to the devil, ol 'scratch really needs to get his money back. Dylan always sucked pretty bad...worst vocalist in the history of music.

IMO, of course, lol
