Would you pledge your soul as loan collateral?

RIGA (Reuters) - Ready to give your soul for a loan in these difficult economic times? In Latvia, where the crisis has raged more than in the rest of the European Union, you can.

Such a deal is being offered by the Kontora loan company, whose public face is Viktor Mirosiichenko, 34.

Clients have to sign a contract, with the words "Agreement" in bold letters at the top. The client agrees to the collateral, "that is, my immortal soul."

What is the price of a human soul? According to this guy $500 or less.
According to the article, he won't employ physical enforcement to people who don't repay their debt..they just won't have a soul.
Any idea what the mind set is in this part of the world?
Would it be easy to use your soul as collateral especially if there was a chance you would default on repayment?

500 bucks is a good deal.. I would give mine for a half eaten candy bar and a go out wit a dirty hooker.. so I guess 500 bucks is good.. I can get alot of candybars and alot of dirty hookers.

Best SOUL for sale I have ever seen was an ebay ad last year if I remember correctly.

It went along the lines of:

For sale to highest bidder.

The Soul of my departed Budgerigar. for the highest bidder gets a signed ( by my budgie with his footprints) letter stating soul ownership for as long as the new owner lives.
Also included are the mortal remains of said Budgie, as well as the cage , unused seed and unused sand, plus water bottle and toys. Buyer collects .

And by the way said Budgie ISN'T actually dead yet, so sale is complete on Budgie's demise..


I'd have to sell my soul for a winning Lottery Ticket ( worth more than £200000 ) and like stated earlier by ThichHeaded, a candy bar and a dirty hooker sound ok, but I'd more likely get lumbered with a dirty candy bar.

This part is plain insulting:

Clients have to sign a contract, with the words "Agreement" in bold letters at the top.

I thought everyone knows that soul contracts are only binding if they are written in latin and signed in blood!

Satan still has the better deal.

In return for this sacrifice and for my denial of all that is good and redeeming, I will possess money in substantial quantities, the fulfillment of all of my lusts, and the destruction and degradation of all that opposes my whims. I shall overcome with blackness, succeed in monstrosity, vindicate all scorn, by breaking the Whole. In return for the additional corruption of other people, for every one damned and dead that I am responsible for directly, I shall have my life prolonged in health for another two years and a day.

Honestly, I don't think that you can sell something that is not yours to sell anyway.

No. I would not sell my soul because it has already been bought by Jesus.

It is not legal to sell something that does not belong to you.

So, this is how the modern shylock on a budget operates? Disgraceful

Nope, even on a whim, I wouldn't sign such a document. I believe I have a soul:

1. no, can't prove it
2. no, have no objective nor measurable evidence
3. no, don't care to debate the existance of it
4. yes, think it's possible to "loose" it.
5. yes, believe a human being can exist without it.

There, did I handle most of the questions that might cause your thread to be derailed?

From the article:

Mirosiichenko said his company was basically trusting people to repay the small amounts they borrowed, which has so far been up to 250 lats ($500) for between 1 and 90 days at a hefty interest rate.

I wonder if you still have to pass a credit check. I mean otherwise every crook will just sign their soul away a few dozen times for profit.

I wish I lived in Latvia. I would start a soul checking business that kept track of peoples' "soul score" so that demons lenders can more easily check on the validity of their collateral.

Sell my soul as collateral for a loan? This has got to be the craziest thing I have ever read. This two-bit loan shark is asking people to hand over their eternal soul for money that isn't even worth the paper it is printed on? I would tell this guy to take a walk if he had ever approached me with this proposition. I don't care if I was loosing my home, car, or drinking water out of the gutter; I would never let this man get his hooks in me through these means.

Some say the soul isn't ours' to use as collateral in a business transaction of this sort, however, we have free-will to do with it what we wish. One example, we have the free-will to sin, and that, according to religious dogma; blackens our souls but we can choose to do it or not. I believe we have a soul and that commodity is priceless and all this material crap is meaningless when it comes to the soul. Here is a clip from one of my favorite movies "Angel Heart," about a man that got involved with Old Scratch for fame and riches and offered his immortal soul as collateral and listen to how Scratch describes the material world and the spiritual. The scene is very creepy. Spoiler Alert!! don't watch the scene if you haven't seen the movie.

There's a song by Slipknot that mentions: "You can't take my soul away from me!"

At least $500 is better than the $5 that Milhouse paid for Bart's soul.

Wow, I need to get one of these loans, and then default.

Sounds like a great way to make money.

posted on Jul, 6 2009 @ 09:16 AM
Bart sold his soul to Millhouse and all manner of bad things happened. I'm not going to risk it, I like the idea of keeping the immaterial away from the material... well in this case I do.

Sounds like a great deal for us atheists. If there are no souls, heaven and hell aren't real, and there's nothing waiting for us in an afterlife then we could pocket 500 bucks like the proverbial free lunch.

And if we're wrong, and we actually lose our soul... well heck, we're atheists. We weren't getting in anyways!

If anyone out there reads this,I am willing to give mine up for 3 million..I'll sign in blood if need be..

Looks up,and says sorry JC...

I don't own a soul anymore. Mine has been divided up between my exwives and girlfriends just like everything else I used to own.

Ask them...........

Which Soul would I have to sign over?

My Ka?
My Khu?
My Khabs?
My Khaibit?
My Khat?
My Ib?
My Sheut?
My Akh?
My Sahu?
My Sekhem?
My Ba?

Those of Kemet (Egypt) have a lot of different Souls.

I mean, I already have to sign over my Ren when I apply for a conventional loan at a bank!

How would signing away a different part of your Soul be any different?

Sure, they could have my Ka if they really want it, but they aren't getting any of the other incorruptible parts of my Soul that I will be needing when I go to the Tuat and have my Ab weighed by Anubis against the feather of Ma'at, and pass the 42 Gates until I may become risen like Asar/Osiris. Those parts I wouldn't sign away for all the gold and tea in China, thank you very much.

When time was up
Off to Hell he went.
