Since we can agree that it makes no damn sense to punish people for sins they didn't commit (did I eat the apple on the apple tree to warrant me being cursed with ADHD? Huh? HUH?!?), we can therefore deduce that Satan was justified in rebelling against God effectively casting himself from heaven because he just knew that God was a psychotic freak! Add that to the fact that God kills more people in the Bible than Satan does, and this theory of mine is LITERALLY the only thing that makes any sense out of the whole god dayum thang!

That is a pretty bad argument.

Coming from someone who mocks religion and thinks the character yahweh is far more cruel than satan (LOL HE CREATED SATAN HERP DERP) so believe me I'm on your side.

You can't really deduce those things logically like that. We can however, from a social and moral standpoint label yahweh as cruel. Satan is no where near as bad as Yahweh, at least he stands up to yahwehs tryranny.

Anyways not like it matters. None of that stuff is real lol. There are no gods or any of that nonsense its just all made up feel good stories.
I believe man made God out of ignorance and fear. If God made man then why the hell would he put us here?

I always thought that Satan seemed like a noble rebel going against the tyrannical dictator that just wanted slaves. Prometheus gave us fire and was punished by Zeus for it; Satan gave us knowledge and was punished by YHWH for it.

What, we're not allowed to share our opinions on the story? Are we also not able to say Emperor Palpatine is evil and Luke Skywalker is good?

I sympathize with OW on this point. I personally really like when a theist understands and corrects one of their "fellows" on a view held by some atheists. I imagine the feeling is the same for him.

We need to hear Satan's side of the story. People are always "Jesus this, Moses that"...maybe Satan has to much dignity to sell his story to TV evangelists.

This is the Internet; you can't use popularity to prove something is good unless it's something I actually like.

I can't quite remember the name of the article, but I remember reading about a whole discussion concerning this. It basically said how Lucifer fought for our freedom as humans and fought for our free will whereas Yahweh did not want us to be free in such a way.

If I ever come across it again I'll PM it to you.

Hell isn't all that bad tbh from what I'm reading of my book of angelic lore they have gambling establishments in Hell and they teach the science such as astronomy.
