    strawberries,

    I laughed at the first one I heard. But all the rest were just the same joke with new curtains.

In The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, a murderer says that his favorite part of killing is the way his victims' eyes go dead at the very moment they realize with finality that he is not going to let them go and that they are going to die. That moment is the distillation of hell.
    Idk, good question. You made me. Why can't I ask simple questions like everyone else?

    Dear God,

    If I can sell my soul to the devil in exchange for goods and services, does that mean, in a balanced world, you make the same deals as well?

    Like, I could make an offer, that you would get my soul, and it goes wherever you go. In exchange I get ultimate power, wealth, and beauty? Oh, and longevity too. No promising something for like a minute.

    Hypothetically speaking? How would that work?

    Thanks!

    ThatGirl,

    That would not work at all. Your soul has value to the Devil because it represents sacrifice. That's why he gives you cool shit for it. There's no sacrifice in trading your soul to me - I'm the preferred destination! You're asking for payment in exchange for...the opportunity to live forever in paradise? When you were 16 did you try to get your parents to give you a car in exchange for the privilege of throwing you a birthday party?

    The Exodus

    Dear God, did the Exodus really occur or is it apocryphal?

    ThatGirl,

    You get cool shit with God, but you don't get instant gratification! He makes you wait and earn it so you appreciate it. They don't call me God the Father for nothing!

    Victor,

    Who is to say? If the effects of it are real, then revealing the historical fact of the Exodus won't satisfy anything but idle curiosity. Besides, in cases like these the truth is more complicated than a mere "yes" or "no".

    God demands his people to follow the rules he has posited for them, otherwise he will punish them for their trespasses. He demands loyalty and love. But real love must be given freely. It cannot be demanded, or expected.
    Adults often expect no less fealty and 'love' from their children, or the children are beaten, harshly criticized, or worse.
    Love that is given through coercion and intimidation is false love, yet parents, and god both expect it.
    Does this not render the foundations of the religion itself, false?

    Dear God,

    Where did the idea for monkey tails come from?
