Refuting Monotheism

Refuting Monotheism: There is no God


1. About caps lock.

20 years ago, printed text looked best in capitals because the resolution was low. Not only do I know it from common sense, but I know it from the history of Western scripting and from the study of graphology, that properly written text (not all in capitals) is easier to read. Reading block capital text takes longer and is harder - there are no high- and low- parts to the text, all the letters are the same height, there are no capitals at the beginning of sentances... in short, it just makes it awkward to read naturally.

Just call it a pet hate of mine, but I honestly believe that if a message is worth saying, it's worth putting in some time to write it in a polite way. All caps, SHOUTING, is not polite, nor a good way of communicating.

2.

Satanists do not believe in God, thank-you-very-much. There is no Satanic organisation that believes in God and Satan and believe that "Satan is more supreme".

An introduction to some different forms of non-atheistic Satanism, try these two pages:

http://www.dpjs.co.uk/righteous.html ("Righteous Satan" theologies are ones that believe that Satan is the most worthy object of religion, whether or not a good God exists)

and

http://www.dpjs.co.uk/god.html
This page is about the existence of God... the evidence of the world points to potential existence of an evil god, but not of a good one. I wrote this a day or two ago, with your original post in mind at the time.

Satanists do not believe in God, but hopefully the latter link shows clearly an agnostic tendancy ... if there was a god, it seems to me it would have to be an evil or neutral one... not a "loving" or "good" one.

You'll struggle to find (outside the paranoid writings of Dennis Wheatley!!) any Satanists' who believe what you think they believe. Satanists' are not devil-worshipping Christians... such people would still be Christians, but merely inverse Christians, but Satanism is not based on Christian mythology and doesn't have the same dualistic beliefs about a real god/satan.

When I say "no Satanic organisation", I mean no stable, organized group of people which have survived more than a generation. I know there is likely to be small freestyle groups of inverse Christians, but such groups have never become organized.

The closest things to such groups are mostly Satanic groups such as the Temple of Set, but their theology is definately more akin to theistic Satanism than any form of dualism involving both a god and a devil.

I will start off this, my last entry to you, by saying that I had no idea that writing all in capitals was like shouting. As I actually have a life, and don't spend any time on the computer, and only came across your site while researching Nefertiti (go figure), I found you completely disturbing. I can only stress how happy I am that I know that there is one true God, and that his son, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for my sins, and everyone else's including yours. After the Rapture happens and when the 7 years of tribulation come, if it is in our lifetime, and if you make it, I hope that you will remember that there was someone out there that cared a little about you and tried to get through. Maybe when the Tribulation events happen, you will turn to God. He will give you one last chance, so don't let your heart be hardened.
Signed...Hoping for the best.

I've heard it a hundred times before, I am not likely to remember any Christian in particular. Sorry, but I simply get too much Christian hate mail and Christian witnesses to consider any one of them in particular "the one who cared a little". Everyone cares. I care about you too, because you're human. I even care enough to have some worries about the things you believe. It works both ways. Have a nice life.

I will pray for you. Simply put, it truly saddens my heart to read into these thoughts of yours and others that feel the same. You are in my prayers regardless of your refutes against God. Someday, before it is too late, I hope that your Christian friends will somehow open your eyes to life, and how great life is with God in control. We all make our choices and I just pray that you will one day make the choice thats right for you.

If you honestly care and have intellectual merit, you should be praying that you, and others, all have their eyes opened to TRUTH, not to whatever-you-presently-consider-to-be-truth. The former, pure truth, is a much harder path than dogma and convinction. To say that you are SURE of your beliefs is to commit the same sin as the Pharisees and confused, simple minded hordes of mankind.

Wish TRUTH on others, not dogmatic self-affirming personal beliefs!

Oh that's rich. Really rich. Well if you go to Hell when you die, you can ask Satan if he exsists.
