If you take a serious look at the bible, the "good guys" are very brutal. Satan didn't do that much evil at all really, especially when you compare it to the carnage that "god" did.
There are left path ideas that satan/lucifer is actually there to help humans free themselves from the oppression. Like Prometheus brought fire to us, also satan/lucifer was the one who told us that we could eat the apple, that there is a huge complex universe out there, lucifer is the light bringer, and satan is the adversary, but he advocates for us.
I personally think it is all very silly, and I don't belive in either side, but there is a lot of interesting nuances to be explored if you can keep an open mind. Interesting that according to biblical theory, we wouldn't even know right from wrong without satan. We would still be in a garden, ruled over by a brutal dictator ready to severly punish us for any mistep (which is actually what happened, because this original sin is carried by every human because god was mad about humans increasing their knowledge)
Again I want to point out that I personally don't believe ANY of it, I am agnostic.
Does satan really rule hell, according to the theory? Why does he have so much power? Satan is not the one that actually "sends people to hell" that's not his decision?
Interesting character, the history of which goes back to non-jewish sources, especially zoroastrians, I think if we are being honest we cant forget that the character is borrowed from earlier shit , shit that the "people of the book" arent supposed to believe in anyway.
>>17224214 yeah but thats wrong. knowing about good and evil leads to a lot of pain. when you could be blissfully ignorant. kinda like looking up sicknesses when your sick instead of reading the funny pages.
>>17224230 >>17224214 Exactly, eating the fruit was the birth of sin...There was no sin before that could lead us away from God. Lucifer/Satan is just a destructive asshole since he got tossed out of heaven which was probably pretty cool.
>>17222876 >"There is one more not amongst the chosen that must be judged... One that has committed the grave sin of genocide. Yes Lord, the one that I must now judge is the one highest god, my creator, You." >Satan to YHVH I creamed so hard.
>>17224384 there are plenty of theistic satanists. There are entire orders, with ranks and degrees, that faithfully believe that satan exists as a real entity. People who spend time on x , and are interested in the subject, know how simple, retarded, and wrong you are.
What is worse, is that you called OP an idiot, while being so plainly and obviously wrong.
