Another view of the devil[edit]

Louis Stanley Jast, librarian, was of the opinion that the devil was the first shop owner, with a special line in apples. Anna Livia (talk) 15:12, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Passing thought[edit]

Among polytheist religions have both gods and goddesses (and various other entities of varying gender(s)), and there is much argument as to whether God is male, female or 'more complex.'

However 'the Devil' in the modern sense is normally seen as male. (Hel, Proserpina and the succubae are different sorts of entities).

The devil in the detail[edit]

Fun: Tag?[edit]

The tone of this article is pretty dissimilar to the standard fare for this site. Jokes are fine but here they seem at the expense of the stated goal of this site; this article could go a lot more in depth for the claim against the existence of a bogeyman as purported in the Bible, but it really just talks about how if the dude existed, how awesome he would be (a la Paradise Lost). I think that would bring more insight that just pining on about how the Devil Rulez, God Droolz for a whole page. (talk) 16:13, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

This page is a relic of the site's earlier days. Many of us know this is a problem many pages have, but reworking them is a long process. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 16:43, 20 February 2020 (UTC)

Literary contemplation[edit]

This is unorthodox... and I hope imaginative.

The Devil is the greatest adventurer of all time. He has been everywhere -- from slave cabins to Ol' Massa's house, the trenches to the war rooms, slums and mansions alike. He has spent plenty of time in politics, and has been behind every pogrom, riot, and persecution. When the Nazis were plotting the Holocaust, he was definitely there. He has spent plenty of time in whorehouses and places of worship. He has been in drug deals and mafia rub-outs.

Unlike human adventurers he faces no danger. He is immortal. Can you imagine the potential for a one-man play?Pbrower2a (talk) 15:57, 10 October 2022 (UTC)
