    I just love Satan so much that I thought I'd honor him in this thread (yes, I'm serious and will provide scripture and personal testimonies).

    To start I'd like to quote from the The Nine Satanic Statements, specifically #7 .

    7. "Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often
    worse than those that walk on all‐fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual
    and intellectual development,” has become the most vicious animal of all!"

    Man as just another animal is a central belief in my philosophical outlook. Once mankind began to see itself as ABOVE other animals and ABOVE Nature itself, is when, I believe, we started becoming more and more out of harmony with the Earth.

    Man is not special, IMO, and like #7 suggests, we are, almost irrefutably, the most destructive. Once we look at humans as animals, I think we begin to make much more sense. Our base desires, urges, proclivities, etc. *

    And, as the seventh Satanic Statement suggests, we are also capable of some of the greatest good. More on that later.



    ok, that's enogh for now. More inspiration from Satan to come!

    I dunno, humanity has the capacity for tremendous creation AND tremendous destruction. Regardless of whether other animals can or cannot do this, but they don't seem to create /destroy at such widespread and systematic levels as humans do. We are different in that regard.

    It is our duty as humans to try to be wise and respectful about our ability and desire to create and destroy.

    My personal pet theory is that our emotional evolution has simply failed to keep up with the invention of opposable thumbs. It wasn't long before we thought we were pretty special because of the ugly digit and then we started making stuff....Maybe this is in fact nature's own self-combust mechanism to ensure our own extinction in rapid order. We certainly seem to be going great guns at inventing ourselves out of a place to inhabit.

    So you're saying you and Satan are on the same page here?

    Satanic Statement #7 .

    7. "Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often
    worse than those that walk on all‐fours, who, because of his “divine spiritual
    and intellectual development [and thumb digit],” has become the most vicious animal of all!"

    Ehhh not quite. I was more responding to the bolded below.

    Humankind IS special. You even noted that we are special in our capacity for destruction. However I also think we are special in our capacity for creativity.

    I wouldn't say we are the most vicious though.

    Come on Johnny, don't just cherry pick the rare horrendous stuff...oh wait, it's not rare. Anyway my point is, concreting backyards, hating all landscaping except lawn and needing to build homes from boundary to boundary with a giant pond of chlorine bleach in the backyard are also crimes against the planet. Yep, we suck as a species.
