    Default Is Satan a human or supernatural concept for you?

    Does the person of Satan conceptualised as more humanistic or more supernaturalistic in your thinking? In different times in history Satan has been conceived as one or the other and sometimes a blending of both, which impresses you as more correct?

    I think you can still answer this if you are a naturalist or non-theist, there is still an archetypical, symbolic legacy or heritage in which Satan features.

    Supernatural, just as god. It's the opposite of god, lives underground, etc.. Doesn't sound very human to me.

    I wonder if people still believe in Satan.

    Conceptual thought to help cope with the guilt of touching yourself at night and accidentally thinking of your aunt.

    It's bullshit, to me. That's all.

    Satan is a living being of great power who seeks ultimate control over the Earth and to overthrow the lofty position of God almighty as this is a war between the galactic super civilizations of Yahweh and Lucifer as you can see in my signature.

    Satan dosn't exist, so he takes neither a human nor a conceptual form to me.

    No you aren't.


    I think he originated as a near-omnipotent/present manifestation of evil, then evolved into a more Earthly figure, and has since been eradicated by modern thought.


    If you are familiar with the Walkin' Dude, that's my favorite allegory for the Devil.

    Not sure I understand the question. Are you asking if Satan, as a physical being with a personality, is a just a symbol used by humans to be able to address the existing supernatural force of evil?

    Or are you asking if we think a supernatural evil force exists at all?

    Some people believed from early on that Satan is a symbolic facet of human nature. An adversarial component of the consciousness - the little 'voice' inside that convinces you to do things that you otherwise know you shouldn't. Not any kind of independent being.

    I hope I've interpreted the question correctly.
