So, the maintainer's view point
Disclaimer: I am in no way trying to sway you from your beliefs. I am not the devil, nor am I his advocate. I am an agnostic/atheist individual who enjoys a good debate. Please feel free to try to prove me wrong, as I will do the same. Thank you.

So on to the post. Like I said before I am an agnostic/atheist. That is to say I am neither a believer nor a non-believer.(although I sway more towards the non-believer). Many people have the common misconception that I am the devil or his advocate, therefore they pray for me. I would like to tell all of those who believe I am being controlled by the devil, that I am very much not.

I was born into a christian family. I've been to church before, but only a couple of dozen times. So maybe I should say that I was born into a family with the label of a christian. My family does not pray, but most of them still say they are christian. Noone in my family,with the exception of my brother, knows that I am agnostic/atheist.

Ok so here I am rambling, maybe I didn't fully wake up this afternoon... gathering thoughts here. If they did find out, I doubt they would care, because I grew up knowing that I can be who I am under limited conditions.

So that's me, I have nothing more to say right now, because frankly i'm not thinking straight right now. Feel free to ask me questions, I might just answer them.

I decided to update because I feel alot more typitive. (Is that even a word? Oh well it is now)

I have so many questions that I would people of all religions to attempt to answer for me. I already have my own answer for these questions, but I would like to debate on these questions.

The bible, "the word of god" How can it be so if it's been updated, alot?.

Why did your god create satan if he already knows that he is going to be bad?

My attempt to answer your two questions

(Link)
There are many different versions of the bible, but they all mean the same thing...Have you seen a Bible that uses the words "thee, thus, thou" etc. ? That is merely one version of the Bible. There is also a version that is translated into modern speech.

Anyways...onto the devil...
I dont know the story in great detail but i know that the devil used to be an angel. He used to be in heaven with God and was a good/nice angel. But- he decided to turn againest God and do wrong things he knew God wouldnt like. I guess basically to sum it all up- we needed satan because earth is not heaven. There are bad things here [i.e. cancer, AIDS, depression, etc.] because if there were no bad things happening, earth would be heaven. But its not.

I read a great book called "The Purpose Driven Life" bye Rick Warren and it was just a crazy book. When i read it i was still questioning Gods existence and it still blew me away. I encourage you to read it =]

[By the way i ramble a lot too, if you havent noticed...SEVERE case of ADD haha. My deepest apologies.]
