And to add to Nogods question, Skep; are there less or more witches today than there were during happy-fun-witch-burning-days? Why?

Couldn't tell you for sure.
how about Comic superheroes dealing with the Devil,why have we seen none?

Robert Johnson, blues legend, sold his soul to be a blues legend. The guy couldn't play a note until he met the devil. Then he became a blues legend. Ever hear his stuff? It sounds very creepy, like it was recorded with the devil next to him.
Ya we believe folk stories.....where has the Devil,and stories of his deals,like the one you described been as of late? Surly someone else has a soul selling story worthy of sharing? Any Republican candidate,like Trump?

JEEEEEEZUUUZ its that easy? I want to sell my soul and have the ability to shape shift,when will the Devil show up?....When I sign the deal can Jesus still save me if I "believe"?

You better believe it's real. It's very scary the type of things people can conjure up with Satan's help.

People wouldn't have killed witches if they couldn't demonstrate the power. Think about it logically. They ask the witch to demonstrate the power. Nothing happens. They would know the witch is a fraud and have no reason to kill.

Something made them kill witches and I can guarantee it was seeing the power of Satan first hand. This stuff is no joke.

Earlier you touted just how insidious witchcraft is. Surely ALL witches who died were in possession of some sort of evil powers? Where is the evidence of a display of these 'powers'?

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Skep,

Are you capable of linking nonbiased websites? They're out there, you can find them.

Skep,

Why would he do that? Of what possible use would he have for unbiased, accurate information? Remember, low standards require a concerted effort on his part. And being lackadaisical takes both dedication and something else, which he doesn't bother trying to remember.

The irony is that Skep doesn't even realize that he is a buddhist instead of a christian. The part where buddhists say "Empty your mind of all thought?" Skep thinks that's normal.
It isn't true that non-existent gods can't do anything. For instance, they were able to make me into an atheist.
