Pretty much self-explanitory.
Why? I am a Catholic, and here are a couple things. Why would you worship Satan, and end up burning in hell, when you could worship the Lord, Jesus Christ and end up in the Paradise garden?
Why? I don't understand any philosophy in it.
A couple more things: Sigil of Baphomet, they worship demons and heinous figures. Huh, to discover the "true self" or something?
Ermmm.
Also, I am not a nut, entertainers actually do sell themselves to make it big, like here, in an interview with lead *****cat Dolls Singer, Nicole Sherzinger, courtesy of the Vigilant Citizen.
Don't be stuck in blind world!
Learn, and don't let them trick you too!

im a catholic too but i think they worship him because i heard that you can have something you want from him but in return you are risking your afterlife where you will be burning in hell but anyways just let them worship him and if you ask me i would say that its plain ba and it just isnt worth it and i will never want to be invole with the devil in anyway and sorry if this offend anyone.


yes because saying what religion you are suddenly makes you more credible.

the notion of selling your soul seems more like something that god would work under. the only difference between what god offers, and what satan offers is that satans is more fun in this life.

let's look at the more &quotalatable" of the two: heaven. both last eternity (one where you're kissing the sky daddy's but cheeks forever). everything that can be accomplished will be, and you'll still have an eternity to go. after that, it would just be pointless existence that never ends. an eternity in either one would be hell to me.

another way to put it is in economic terms: value is based on scarcity. life is so precious because we only get so much. the concept of heaven is like dividing anything by infinity (in mathematical terms, it is undefined, but in most cases, it is 0). more life means life has less value and meaning.

that is why I live my life, because life squandered chasing fairys will leave you empty on your deathbed.

in mathematical terms, it is undefined

Wouldn't that be dividing by 0? The result wouldn't be undefined, but infinitely small.

Not sure if mmbs112's comment was deleted or not...name isn't showing up on "Last post by" but his comment is still here..

Anyways..mmbs112. You say that "you have already said what you wanted to", yet you still haven't answered HahiHa's question..which he reminded you about via profile messenger.

It seems to me that some of the people who worship God suck all the fun out of life and Satan is the alternative. So there's a choice between the living death of a miserable religion being pure and bored and getting some pleasure from life by dancing with the devil. Or at least letting yourself go a bit.

I tend to think like you, but we have to be very careful, for the definition/need of fun can vary. I would never want to become a monk, and it seems stupid to me, even more assuming this life is a gift of god, to waste it in a monastery. But the monks themselves certainly derive great satisfaction from their simple, devoted life; they don't need all the fun. (or so did one of my friends argue when I confronted her with that point. Seeing how many pedophiles run around among priests, I'm not sure its so satisfactory, but eh, you never know...)

Spanish Catholics imprisoned, tortured, and killed Jews, Protestants, Muslims, and other religious minorities for not being Catholic. Lovely.


There is a difference between a government, of one religion, punishing law-breakers, like the Pagan Roman Empire killing the Christians or the Spanish inquisition or whatever, and people killing other religions just for being other religions. When the Irish came to the U.S, they were murdered in the streets by protestants. There was supposed to be freedom of religion. Catholics don't go hunting for other religious groups in a country of free religion.

So they only do it when they can get away with it, amirite?

On the topic of the Inquisition, the entire point was to kill threats to the Spanish State and its institutions -- The Catholic Church being the central pullar of any ruler's power. Thus, the vast majority of those persecuted under the Inquisition were religious minorites: Jews, Protestants, Muslims, etc. What better way to consolidate power than by converting your opponents at the point of a sword, and burning the rest at the stake as "heretics"? The genius of it is that the opposition was instantly delegitimized, being of course "heretics
."

I"m in no mood to dig through thirty pages of flak against my like-minded brethren. Can I get a better summary?

Some questions were also asked and sometimes went unanswered *cough*

You're not a theistic satanist, Chillz, are you? A notion was thrown into the debate about how people became satanists after feeling betrayed by god, and I was thinking about the implications of this on your morals..

Just would like to point something out, it may or may not have already been covered. (didn't quite read all 32 pages) God put the tree of the knowledge of good and evil into the bible in order for there to be free will. If there was no choice then we would not be entities of our own, we would simply have no choice but to love and obey him. But he allowed for us to choose not to follow him.
In summation, the tree made free will exist.

So God gave us the ability to sin, and thus gave us limited hope for passing his arbitrary test to gain access to eternal happiness?
