"Order in the court, order in the court!"
The jury, assembled of 6 Christians and 6 Atheists, are seated in the court, each with a tinge of nervousness as they are about to decide on the case
of all cases: Was Satan really the bad guy?
They had been ordered not to speak on the issues with peers, to include church members or even blog groups. Each juror has been given the very bible
itself to help in deciding the case. They have been warned against any (further) propaganda by members of clergy, and another factor had to be
clarified; the atheists had to accept that once in the courtroom, the Lord God and Lucifer (Satan, devil) did in fact exist, and the Christians had to
accept the words of the very book they hold to be true, and not distort the facts as they please
The World vs. Satan, for the crimes of slavery, rape, kidnapping, torture, lies and MASS MURDER
On the side of the prosecution are the Lord God and his attorney.
On the side of the defense is Lucifer (aka Satan), a 3rd of the Angels, Eve, and the surviving members of humanity after the Deluge.
I, ButterCookie, am litigating on behalf of the Defense.
ButterCookie: “Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, yesterday we heard the prosecution speak. Today, I am going to, and perhaps this will be the first
time in recorded history, allow my client, the defense to speak.”
“My client intends to prove his innocence for major crimes in humanity, including kidnapping, rape, torture, slavery, and most of all MURDER. He has
also been charged with being the ‘father of lies’, which in itself is outright slander of my client’s name, and today I intend to show the court
that not only is my client completely innocent , but that the claimant, LORD GOD is actually the guilty party. Ladies and gentlemen, let’s remove
the negative stigma placed on my client for a millennia and get to the bottom of the true terrorist of the bible. Forget the propaganda and myths you
have been indoctrinated to believe about my client, and use our critical and rational thinking on today.
Thank you. I now would like to call on my first witness, Eve.”
Eve approaches the bench. She swears in (ironically in the bible) and jeers at the Lord God from the corner of her eye. The fear she has held for him
has started to diminish…..
ButterCookie: “Ma’am, could you state your name for the court.”
Eve: “I really don’t have one, but you may call me ‘Eve’. See, I am only one of the prototypes of the first female ‘human’ species…..it
was known as the Eve Project, but history has been ‘adjusted’ to look like there was only one of me….”
Juror 6, a Christian, looks very puzzled.
ButterCookie: “Thank you. Eve, could you describe for the court your role in ‘Genesis’?”
Eve: “Sure. Basically, we (again there were many of us early prototypes) toiled the garden….that was our purpose. And one day……”
ButterCookie: “I’m sorry Eve, many of the jury members may not understand what is meant by ‘toil’. Could you describe in more detail?”
Eve: “Oh of course. As it is stated in Genesis 2:15, God saw that there was no one to till the soil, meaning to cultivate it, and make it proper for
vegetation. Mainly though, tilling was also extracting gold from the gold mines in Africa.”
Juror 6, again looks puzzled.
ButterCookie: ‘I see. So in other words, mankind was created for slavery.”
Prosecution: “I object. Slavery has such a negative connotation”
Judge: “Objection overruled. Continue counsel.”
ButterCookie: “Thank you, your honor. So Eve, was it in fact slavery?”
Eve: “Yes it was.”
ButterCookie: “Please continue on with the ‘Genesis’ situation”.
Eve: “Yes. So we were tilling the soil in the hot gold mines of Africa when one of the gods….well you all know him as ‘Satan’, approached us,
and addressed the inhumane treatment that we were getting. The conditions became unbearable and we would be whipped from time to time by the gods if
our work was not up to par.”
Juror 6: (Gods???)
Eve: “We would slave from sun up to sun down with little food…..some of the gods would capture us sleep with us against our will…”
Prosecution: “Are you suggesting that my client kidnapped and raped humans? I object!”
Judge: “Objection sustained……Counsel, can you in fact state any biblical references to rape or allowance of rape and kidnapping by the Lord
ButterCookie: “Certainly, your honor. To name a few:
(Judges 21:10-24 NLT)
So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children. "This is what you are to do,"
they said. "Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin." Among the residents of Jabesh-gilead they found four hundred young
virgins who had never slept with a man, and they brought them to the camp at Shiloh in the land of Canaan.
(Numbers 31:7-18 NLT)
They attacked Midian just as the LORD had commanded Moses, and they killed all the men. All five of the Midianite kings – Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and
Reba – died in the battle. They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword. Then the Israelite army captured the Midianite women and children and
seized their cattle and flocks and all their wealth as plunder. They burned all the towns and villages where the Midianites had lived. After they had
gathered the plunder and captives, both people and animals, they brought them all to Moses and Eleazar the priest, and to the whole community of
Israel, which was camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho.
Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the camp. But Moses was furious with all the military
commanders who had returned from the battle. "Why have you let all the women live?" he demanded. "These are the very ones who followed Balaam's advice
and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the LORD at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD's people. Now kill
all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.
As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people
inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands
it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the
spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.
(Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB)
"When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely
woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house. But before she may live
there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive's garb. After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you
may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife. However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall
give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion."
