I used to see other's spelling mistakes as their lack of intelligence just as I see 'text speak' as laziness/stupidit...

Re: Who has more control of our thinking; God or Satan?

Ideally, the religious would question whether the gaining of knowledge is a sin. They might consider that in Adam and Eve the ancients were simply creating an allegory for the powers of humanity beyond that of other animals, and the price we pay for that awareness in suffering. this the Jewish view...

What if God and Satan are one and the same?

Do Catholics aware of these Quotes? Jesus claimed that He is the way to Truth.
Orthodox, Roman Catholics and prots all know of the OT, so yes they know of those quotes.

they just ignore them, it does not fit their theology.

Re: Who has more control of our thinking; God or Satan?

Re: Who has more control of our thinking; God or Satan?

To Christian sheeple, not thinking humans. Where is Satan ever shown as lying or being deceitful? I have 4 or 5 quotes on God lying but not a one on Satan lying.

Re: No Birth - No Death - No Death - No Birth.

Life is a self sustaining reciprocal infinite feedback loop. Birth and Death are Illusions they are conceptual appearances and disappearances and reappearances of infinity. In illusion, life may be long or short or neither. In reality life is endless and beginningless. Birth and Death are just the ...
