I have counted 143 bi-polar contradictions in the Bible.

\m/

if your atheist why are you making a sign of satan with your hand ?atheist dont believe in the supernatural right?
You mean the hand symbol of heavy metal/rock?
I thought he was saying he loved us. :P
I figured it was saying 'Party on Dude', Bill and Ted style.
the "love" hand sign language is with the thumb out;-) PEACE!!!!!
well some rock bands use it (not all) rock music is not wrong in and of itself it depends on the intent of the artist ,among satanists this hand symbol is used to mean "satan" since the bible doesnt specifically mention rock music we can apply romans chp 14 to what bands we would want to listen to.(rock or whatever music you like)check it out the whole chp.plz thank you. p.s. some bands that use satanic imagery arent necessarily satanist they might just do it for shock value or to have a certain look
in gen. 3:8-9 its not that YHWH doesnt know where theyre at, its that He wants them to confess their sin.PEACE!!!!!
