  • Satan 's name is Lucipher and he is a fallen angel who was and still is wanting to be over God...not gonna happen!

  • I like to believe there is a Heaven and a God. I am Catholic by birth, but I do not practice any religion. I had my son Baptised Protestant (DH's religion by birth). I have seen, what people have told me are spirits in pictures. I like to think there is somewhere you go when you die. I don't really think there is a Hell though, maybe more of a purgatory where they send you back to try to be a better person.

  • No, I don't believe in Satan. I don't believe there has to be an ultimate evil to balance things out or to tempt people into misdeeds or be the scapegoat for human failings.

    I think (IMHO) Satan is an excuse people make because they can't admit that, sometimes, people do bad things of their own free will.

  • No. Satan is a purely Abrahamic belief. I do not believe the Gods are perfect, so I don't have a need to offset that perfection with evil. I believe all things have both aspects of dark and light in them - including the Gods.

  • Nope. Sabrina summed it up nicely. There's a dark and a light side to everything from nature, to people, to the Gods IMO.
