Was Satan really
I mean, yeah, he's pretty scary-looking in most depictions. Fiery red, pointy tail, horns, pitchfork. Not exactly the warm and fuzzy type...well,
But, seriously. Back in my Christian days, I learned how Satan was, well, THAT guy. The ultimate evil. He's supposed to be the worst of the worst,
the head torture master in Hell. It seemed like anything bad that happened to you was his work. He was the only guy mad on Sunday mornings during
But, has he really done horrible stuff to people? From what I remember, he transformed into a snake and tricked Eve into eating a smart apple. Thus,
Adam ate it and doomed ALL his descendants. So, Satan is blamed for the fall of man.
But, was it really his fault that the people ate the smart fruit? Surely, Eve could have said no. But, even if it is his part, isn't Satan just
playing some cosmic role? If he hadn't have done this, Jesus-god wouldn't have needed to come down from heaven and get crucified.
Pretty deep stuff there...let's look at stuff obviously detrimental to humans, like being killed. How many people has Satan actually killed in the
bible? I may have missed something, but 0 seems the right number to me. Those gays in those cities...well, that was bible god. Practically the
whole planet, drowned...bible god. Those kids who clowned the bald guy...bible god. All those Egyptians, from armed forces to kids...bible god.
Bible god has killed 1000s of people, while Satan has killed none...but Satan's the bad guy? Maybe Satan is bad, but it's a lesser of 2 evils
And, BTW, I'm not a devil worshipper or a Satanist. Hell, I don't even think Satan is actually real.
I just always wondered how the uber evil
guy didn't do all the killing in the bible.
