Best read ever!
Reader comment on item: Finding Allah in Unlikely Places
Submitted by Vigilante (Germany), Mar 6, 2006 at 19:16Guys and gals! This line of comments was one of the best reads i had in times! It was comedy, satire psychology and whatnot rolled into one... Thanks a lot for that!!
It is interesting to see the actual differences between two mindsets.
but coming back to this serious thematic... or isnt it so serious at all?
I might add... there is a lot of christian symbols "misused" by so called "satanists" or whatever.
Nobody cares about that, even the christians. They might shake their head and grumble something but thats it, they still keep their faith and still dont resort to murder-death-kill. Not even in the form of spoken or written words. Sometimes they even try to help those "lost souls" to find "the right path" back "unto the lords lap" or however they would say such a thing.
Me myself reversed a "holy cruzifix" undetected, during a stay in a christian hostel and the reaction of the hosts was just a smile and the action of actually re-reversing the cruzifix.
Why do ppl always get told in the end they will end up in hell and then call for Allahs/Gods name? For this i have to believe in a devil as well... So in the end will I be at least 50% Satanist? But what if i am actually an "pure" 100% satanist? Do i get the five-star treatment by satan?
Is that a better deal than just paradise? or can i do a mixed treatment? Like all good deeds get rewarded by paradise and all bad by the devil? I the devil is the master of evil, why should he punish me for doing his/hers/its deeds?
What if we all reincarnate? Is paradise/hell just a kind of cosmic vacation? Stop-Over at an ugly spaceport? Can i upgrade??
I dont understand religions, i think they are too reasonable and intelligent for me...
i think i will resort to eating bugs and living up in trees to escape my dilemma... at least for awhile.
