Lucifer was a Roman God. His name means Lightbearer. In Roman mythology he is the herald of Aurora, the dawn. Lucifer is the personification of the Morningsstar, the planet Venus. In Greek mythology Lucifer was called Phosphorus, the shining one, herald to the rosy-fingered Eos, sister of Selene and Helios, the Moon and the Sun. The Dawn, which lies between darkness and light, is a fitting symbol of initiation. Lucifer, the herald of dawn, becomes the initiator himself.
Lucifer is an alien element in Christianity. His role in Christianity is due to a mistranslation in the Book of Isaiah and he was later identified with Satan. The Book of Isaiah 12:14 says: [Hebrew letters] HYLL BN-ShChR. HYLL means bright or shining morningsstar. BN means son. ShChR means dawn or morningsstar. The Bright Son of the Morningsstar, an ironic title Isaiah attributed to the arrogant Babylonian King Tiglath-Pileser III. By the translation into Greek, the translator used the word phosphorus, the shining one, and from the translation in Greek into Latin, the word used was Lucifer. In the Vulgate Bible Lucifer is spelled without a capital L. It was not intended to be a name, but a title.

Or maybe its to late for that. Something you should think on!
They call this the place of the children, but me thinks them children are more of the mentally deranged perturbed petulant variety. But I suppose the curtain has not yet dropped...So we shall still see what becomes of all of this.
Whatever "all of this" is supposed to be or mean! Again nothing much, or much ado about nothing. As they say, whoever "they" are.

i thought lucifer was cast out of heaven because he started thinking too highly of himself and wanted
to overthrow God and sit on his thrown.
Where does it state in the bible that he was cast out because he didnt want to kill people?
