Hey all, I met this guy that apparently worships satan and says he's real, and he could show him to me. All I'd have to do is read the bible backwards in a dark room, or follow him to any dark crossroad in the middle of the night. Yes, it sounds ridiculous! But if there actually was a 'devil' would youy go out of your way to see for yourself? Has anyone ever heard these myths before? I'm tempted to give one a try, I just don't trust that guy enough to go out in the middle of nowhere. Yes, I know its a crazy thought, but I just have to wonder.
No I would not go out of my way to have 'proof' of the devil. What you would find is what your own mind creates. We create our own gods and devils. So if I want a devil I can make it up by reading a bible backwards in a dark room (do you get a flashlight? and how tedious would that be?) or going to a cross roads on a dark night (been there done that, no devil). Or I could do a dance, bake a cake, or whatever I want to.
Tell your friend you can't see the devil because you don't have one in your head.
The whole bible? And is it out loud, or to yourself? And is it the words backwards, the letters backwards, or the sounds backwards?
And how the hell can you read anything at all in a dark room? Don't you need light to read?
As to following a guy alone to any dark crossroad in the middle of the night is just plain dangerous, even with "the devil" out of the equation. But just to play along: what time is the "middle" of the night? Midnight? Eastern, Central, or Pacific? Is that Daylight or Standard?
