What if satan is the good guy and god is the tyranny and evil? i don't consider this a heavy philosophical question, but i need discussion none the less haha
satan only killed under 10 people (don't quote me on this fact, i'm sure someone has a more accurate answer), wheres as god...im sure you can work that one out. i.e the almakites
might doesn't equal right, is there a book of satan? what if hell is not hellish?, but only told from the people bias of heaven and god
.........I Lucifer by Glen Duncan ...it is the best take on Satan I ever read.
And swearing- that's playing devil's advocate wherein under stress or danger you tip into a darker dirtier projection than the stress or danger Its-self by words with laden connotations. Then the real stressor can be envisonged as less by comparison giving strength and even the relief is amusingf.And comic relief to juxtapose all that is cared about and held dear as not so if willing to dangle it.
People hiss " God" or "Christ" when they stub their toe but usually not....
So yes the devil does less harm than God if as an ally He helps cope with God who wouldn't create a better world even if He could if He wanted to.
Regarding christianity, in theory, it is logically valid to say that in reality god is evil and the events in the bible are just a (flawed) publicity stunt to make him appear good and satan is actually the good guy fighting against him and has been subjected to a smear campaign.
I think a good case could also be made for comparing god to an evil facist dictator, crushing those who oppose him, demanding obedience and requiring adoration and material wealth.
To be honest, I think that might does equal right when talking about gods. If the supreme god says that something is right and chooses to reward conformity and punish disagreement with this, there is nothing and no-one that can cause the situation to be otherwise. It's not fair, but then neither is reality.
Love the picture and what it says Mike!
Wow that picture says it all. Tis revelation to mine eyes
Thank you, Ladies.
I slapped this together a few years ago at at Motifake.
I posted it there when I was finished and didn't think much of it 'til a few days later, when I got a nasty-gram E-mail from one of their Moderators, telling me to knock it off with the anti-religious stuff and find another subject.
It was the only one I had posted among at least a hundred like it that others had posted.
I can only assume I musta' hit a nerve.
Or a bone.
Anyway, it's been collecting dust in my Photobucket account, waiting for me to drag it out.
Glad it was for some folks who appreciate it.
