A friend of mine recently mentioned that they believe the devil exists.
Being the atheist that I am, I dismiss the devils existence just as I dismiss the existence of god.

Out of curiosity, I wonder if others believe in the existence of the devil.

I know the Devil exists but he would ONLY appear as a man in a red suit with a pitch fork and tell me; "I am Satan! Give me your soul!" so I can never be fooled by him.

He would never appear as something I might find fun or attractive that I would willingly invite into my life and my house. He doesn't work that way.

Just my 2 cents.

fyi, i don't believe the Devil as Christians know of him, is believed by the Jews...so it's a little confusing listing it as an abrahamic religion...and Muslims see Satan as an 'adversary of man', and not God....so truly, i think the 'Devil' is Christian....imho.

I think DEVIL is probably just a word passed down through language with "de" meaning "of" and "vil" connoting "vile" or "villainous".

As an agnostic, I have no opinion. Time will tell.

As a pragmatist, yes, the devil, exists and is identified by his suit, white shirt, ingratiating manner, wide smile and his many occupations: Banker, broker and insurance maker.

Well, I couldn't just say "evil", I'm already proof of that existence (cheetohs).
Devil - D = evil

True enough. But let me spin it a bit. The banker, broker and insurance maker all own the politician, think of the politician as someone who does the devils work.

satan would like to eat my knob

Ergo, satan does not exist?


Somebody with a snake avatar needs to post....or maybe an apple avatar.
