that anyone could have seen that face in the fire! It doesnt have to be recognizable by someone whos seen that face before..cuz i know i havent. If i
think of the devil i think of pitchfork and a really nasty face..not smoky fire face! But i do think that it resembles a demon!
I have alway thought the Shrub looked like an evil elf, and my friends all agree... Something to the order of Leprechaun meets Ted Bundy, but I
Demon comes to us from Sanskrit div by way of the greek daimon which meant divine power.
In orginal Euro-pagan history, demons were low order nature and elemental spirits, such as the afore mentioned Salamander. Higher order demons often
had the care giving of certain areas, provences animals, ect.. If anyone ever watched Beast master the series, you would remember the Kurupera was a
higher order demon.
Let us not also forget that we draw our mental images from our culture, and Western Culture (USA/UK) is very filled with Judeo-Christian imagery,
right or wrong.
In the hijacking and distruction of the pagan religions of the British tribes, not only did the Christians of the day either deify local gods and
goddesses into the pantheon of saints, and ascribe their powers, gifts, whathave you to blessings from god, instead of powers which were theirs by
their own godheads, but they also took the image of The Horned God, and used that to depict their image of Satan, inforcing the pagandry is evil,
christianity isn't agenda.
It worked. We see horns and think devil, demon, evil.. these words are synonomous in our minds.
I hate to hijack this thread, and get on an anti christian rant, I am not antichristian, but I recognize hypocracy when I see. And I hate it when I am
told two completely comflicting things, and an expected to believe both without question.
That said, "I" have decided for myself, that if Satan, The Devil, Lucifer are all one and the same, being a fallen angel, he would probably be quite
good looking. The Father of Lies, right? It might be a LIE that he is good looking, but once he was, and that would be the image he would use to
Also, remember this, we were given FREE WILL by the Almighty, right? Therefor Lucifer, Satan whoever CANNOT MAKE us do evil.
He can Lie, threaten, cheat, manipulate, beg, nudge, hint, and out right ask, but he cannot MAKE us do anything.
That is ascribing powers greater than God to something that is lesser than God, unless of course you take the veiw that Stan is the dark side of God,
and they are one and the same, just different sides of the same coin...
OK, Rant over.
I still would like to know the exact cercumstances this picture was taken. Inside, outside, what kind of lighting, was there a fire there, ect.
Those questions have been asked and only answered in a VERY vague manner.
I am inclined to believe that there is something to the picture, but without details, I am begining to feel that the nay sayers of this thread are
more correct than I would like them to be.
