You know, I walked into a church once. By some kind of crazy coincidence, the area was hit with an earthquake and it burst into flames almost at the same time. Sucks, right? =/

you were serious about Zathar,  I tell what I was told you need professional help

Given my claims have no less weight than yours, so shall we go seek professional help together?

I find that extremely funny.  if you live in the upstate NY are sure I go with you for counseling.

Well, I recommend it anyway. ;)

I asked a Christian once why I couldn't get Satan to appear so I could sell him my soul or why other characters wouldn't appear such as demons. They said they didn't have to appear to me because I was already lost and would be Satan's property anyway so He didn't have to waste his time with me. Hmmm.

I know, right? That happens to me all the time.

Though I don't go into churches a lot anymore. I was told from the higher-ups that what I made the bishop do with the nuns last time was considered a bit much.
Absilio Mundus!

I can do no wrong. For I do not know what it is.

You're lucky. I've been banned from churches all over the world entirely. Something about being the spawn of Satan or whatever.

And now you've ignored it twice.

I want your guarantee that if I follow your words exactly, I will get that personal experience.

Why is this so hard for you to give?
Just because you've always done it that way doesn't mean it's not incredibly stupid.
Why is it so hard for believers to answer a direct question?

Maybe she's the same as Lucy Fur:



Devils can change their gender over time.  Astaroth has been male for a couple thousand years but was Astarte, aka Ishtar in the ANE.

Conversely, that paltry list does not have Belphegor.  All countries, it seems, have a patron saint.  St. Edward the Confessor for England for instance.  France, too, has St. Denis as their patron saint.  But France is so (dis)honored that it has a patron devil -- Belphegor.  Some time after he got the job as ambassador to/governor of France he changed to female.   She appears as a woman in a robe with a mask covering most of her face.  She is said to be very beautiful or very terrible or both.

A year ago there was an incident in France when a woman (a lawyer no less) sneered at a Moslem woman in a burka at a supermarket as "Belphegor".

There is a French novel made into a movie a couple times about Belphegor sneaking around the Louvre at night and killing some people.  Spoiler:  It's a woman burglar/murderess in a costume.

Wasn't there a big oral culture before the old and new testaments were written? I wonder how they communicated the names of these demons before they were eventually recorded?

The "don't say an evil being's name out loud" came from the idea that names had power.  If you said a name out loud, it might hear you and take notice.

Oookay. Demons only notice you if you say their names....because they have human-style ears. Right. Why am I not scared yet? &)

So the words 'god' and 'devil' are interchangeable, then?  That would explain rather a lot about Yahweh...

I just visited that website and screamed out almost all the demon's names.  Nothing happened yet.  I'm also drunk right now, does that make me more susceptible to demons?  WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN???  haha

i concur, demons are often spoken many times and nothing happened. enjoy your beer.

I love to read books, just not your Bible. i support gay rights and women's rights. Why? Because i'm tired of the hate, stupidity, and your desire to control us all and make up lies.

You are a true prophet as both of those things happened.  For one, nothing happened, and after that I did have another beer.
