Even if we go by your 'holy book.' by Vovina-de-Micaloz Even if we go by your 'holy book.' by Vovina-de-Micaloz

It's honestly rather sad that I have to mention this, but... think before you speak. Seriously, it's not that hard.

Put this together because I did not see a stamp like it, plus I feel a bit like ranting.
(Stamp made entirely in Seashore.)

DISCLAIMER: I do not believe in the bible. AT ALL.
The bible references that comprise this argument, are here to make people who DO believe in it, think.



Going to do a huge copy and paste here, taken from www.daltonator.net/durandal/re… Which is an unbiased and neutral source, from what I've seen.

"Satan

•Satan, like Prometheus, gave knowledge to humanity by giving Eve the fruit from the forbidden tree. Because of Satan, humanity gained knowledge of good and evil, according to Genesis. Since we couldn't have possessed knowledge of good and evil before eating the fruit, Adam and Eve couldn't have known that eating the fruit was evil, so it seems a little harsh to punish them as severely as God did. Satan gave humans true capacity for moral judgment, unlike God, who simply expected everyone to mindlessly obey his orders.
•There is no biblical record of Satan engaging in the murder of torture of any human being, unlike God, who is guilty (and proudly guilty) of commiting genocide.
•There is no biblical record of Satan ever ordering someone to kill someone else, unlike God, who has repeatedly demanded the deaths of those who commit even the smallest of offenses.
•Satan will not be holding a massively dramatic ceremony full of blood and death for the return of his son to Earth. God apparently will.


God

•God takes away Adam and Eve's eternal life, thus commiting the first murder, and holds their descendants responsible and visiting Adam and Eve's punishment down on their children. In today's moral standards, the sins of the father die with the father.
•God destroys all life on Earth in a great flood, except for a drunk (Noah) and his family, for failing to worship him.
•God's tenth plague upon the Israelites was the unjustified murder of all firstborn sons in Egypt, which undoubtedly included little children.
•Before sending the plagues to Egypt, God "hardened Pharaoh's heart" so that he wouldn't let the Israelites go, so he could have an excuse to visit horrible plagues upon them, like boils, killing cattle and murdering all firstborn sons. (Exodus 4:21)
•God orders the Levites to kill their "every man and his neighnor" for worshipping another god. This cost 3000 lives. (Exodus 32:27)
•God sends a plague to the Israelites, apparently feeling that mass-butchery wasn't enough of a punishment. (Exodus 32:35)
•God kills Onan for refusing to impregnate his late brother's (whom God also slew) wife and instead "spilling his seed on the ground." (Genesis 38:8-10)
•God kills the entire populations of Soddom and Gammorah (again, including women, children and infants) for practicing certain sexual techniques.
•God gives all Philistines hemorrhoids in their pubic areas. (1 Samuel 5:9)
•God kills over 50,000 people for looking at an ark. (1 Samuel 6:19)
•God kills 70,000 people because King David decided to have a census. (1 Chronicles 21:7-14)
•God approves of slavery, and instructs owners to beat their slaves. (Proverbs 29:19)
•And, finally, God makes sure that if you are guilty of even the smallest transgression, you shall suffer endlessly for all eternity, following a dramatic homecoming for Jesus, who will be extremely pissed off at everyone for putting him to death, even though it was just the Romans and even though he knew what was going to happen beforehand, and he could have easily avoided it by using his power as God to perform a miracle and prove who he was. (See the entire book of Revelation)



It doesn't take a mathematician to add up and compare God and Satan's respective body counts. God has, after all, killed billions of people in a great flood. Satan never did anything like that. What was the only thing Satan did "wrong"? He rebelled against God, but wouldn't you? Look at what kind of a God he is! He needlessly murders people in nearly every book and passage of the Old Testament! He created an entire race of people for the sole purpose of catoring to his own ego, and then gets mad when we don't live up to our appointed role in life or question one of his decisions! He is a ruthless, dictatorial, narcissistic, sociopathic mass murderer. If I go to Hell for not worshipping him, so much the better. I'd rather spend eternity with Satan, someone who hasn't treated the human race like disposable garbage, someone who has given knowledge to humanity rather than trying to suppress it."

"Try running this by xians. They keep parroting "The Devil deceives" when in truth, it is their own "god." And, this so-called "god" of theirs is afraid of humanity obtaining knowledge and spiritual power? Is threatened by our physical nudity? "Loves" you so much he will damn you to a fiery pit to burn for all eternity? Hardly our creator. Everything the Christians accuse "The Devil" of is really their own "god." This is their deception. "He deceiveth the masses.""

---

As for me, I have my own personal experience:
He protects those dedicates to him, he ls them in times of need, and encourages us to be strong and independent. He is the most kind and loving father-figure anybody could ask for...

In contrast; while when I was a christian, I spent 13 years feeling like I was talking to a black hole. I got nothing done and was miserable 24/7. After I left it, I kept having thoughts of "what if everything's reversed? What if Satan isn't the bad guy?" only to find years later that my thoughts were true.

Where I live, people dislike Satan because:
:bulletred: He lives in hell.
:bulletred: He looks mean :lmao:
:bulletred: He lives in hell, I cannot stress this enough, that's their only reason. My folks are complete morons, because I can't question god. According to their logic, Satan is bad, that's that. Well, I am not a Satanist, but I kind of think Satan is a good guy.

Satan lives in Hell because he tried to overthrow the LORD.
He doesn't look mean. It is explicitly stated that he was the brightest star, the most beautiful angel in Heaven.
Do you think we believe he just lives in Hell for no specific reason?

Did he try to overthrow the lord before or after he established his laws?

Tell my retarded folks that Satan does not look mean. They are stupid.

And given the information that Vovina gave us, I think God is the bad guy. Should I give you more information?

Satan had existed beside the LORD since the time of Creation

I'll get to that.

Yes, I would ask you provide me with some reason to believe that the Creator and Preserver of Creation is malign.

This is more informational than the description.

More reasons to dislike god.

I also have a personal experience: God also seems like an arrogant prick. Even thinking of another god is a SIN, to him.

All that stuff is entirely justifiable. And once again, sin and evil and wickedness exist because the Devil first seduced Eve in the Garden.

That second thing was complete bullshit and you know it.

Why should He tolerate those who have been told of Him worshiping false gods?

Like it says in the first one, Satan's evil is simply god's word. Not everyone will find his word to be valid. Especially since there's a commandment that says "thou shalt not kill", but god managed to ruin more lives than Satan.

That second resource may look silly, but they are perfectly good reasons to dislike god. The 4th reason may have sounded silly, but it makes a good point.

As a god, he needs to get over the fact that not everyone will worship him. That is real selfish and arrogant. This god needs to respect that people won't believe in him.

God slew and ruined those who defied him.

No. No it does not.

He created Humanity. He gets to make the rules for us.

The funny thing is, neither of those are even true. Joke's on them.

"Well, I am not a Satanist, but I kind of think Satan is a good guy."

Thanks. We need more sane people in this world.

No, Satan is the bad guy. Your reasoning is just insanely flawed
