Greek Philosopher Aristotle once said: "It is the mark of an educated man to entertain an idea without accepting." I invite you to try and do the same here if you feel you can. If not, and you are easily offended and find stuff like this uncomfortable then do not involve yourself with this discussion.
Furthermore, this discussion is about the religion of Primordial Gnosis, and the idea God as depicted in the current famous religions such as Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc could actually be the real Satan. Also, if you are an Atheist like me I invite you to entertain this idea, explore and explore it for the sake of argument.
So, recently I have been dabbling in different religious texts in order to try and understand the minds of theists, as well as radicals and extremists. Interestingly, on this quest, I came across a rather interesting book called "Gnosis - The forbidden Religion." What this religion advocate is that the real God is the "Unknowable God;" it is this that intrigued my interest further; I am open to the idea of an unknowable God as opposed to an anthropomorphic one.
This religion also advocates that St. Lucifer (the Archangel) was actually a good entity trying to warn Adam and Eve against God in the bible that Gnosis believes is actually Satan, but he got caught.
From a philosophical point of view, this all sounds plausible considering a certain number of stuff that God permitted in the Bible does seem like it would make him as equal or even worse than the actual Devil as depicted in the Bible.
I will also end this by saying this: someone once wrote: "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." In the same way, perhaps the greatest trick the Biblical God ever pulled was convincing the world that he wasn't the real Satan!
Over to you.
The unexamined thought is not worth thinking.
