Would you rather have a long conversation with God or the devil?


I do not understand the question. Are you referring to the Christian Jesus Christ and Satan, the Jewish YHVH and Samael or the Islamic Allah and Iblis? Or all of them at the same time as the same entities or characters? Are we talking about Satan the loyal angel of God, or Satan the adversary, Al-Shaitan lord of the shayateen, Lucifer the light bringer, or Satan the seven headed dragon with twelve wings and thirteen haloes, or what?

Are we talking about God the programmer of the “simulation” we perceive as the universe, God the hyper-advanced extraterrestrial, God the intradimensional machine-god, God the Force flowing through all things binding us together, God the cosmic sky father residing in “heaven”, God the storm god, God the war god, God the solar deity, God the loving and merciful or God the wrathful? Big G of the Old T, or the son of God who is also God? Or God the metaphor, God the higher consciousness, God the Thoughtform, God the dream, or God the delusion? Or perhaps some grand combination of some of these things? It would be greatly appreciated if you would elebarate on what you mean when you say “would you rather have a long conversation with God or the devil?”. Your question is confusing...

It is just strange really how so many conversations on here regarding a “biblical God” or “Satan” are expressed primarily through the Christian Weltanschauung, even by anti-Christians or atheists, when these characters are not exclusively Christian and did not originate in Christianity.

But to feign surprise at the fact that we live in a post-Christ world is silly. Yes, other systems have their devils and gods, but let's not pretend that Jesus isn't the center of human history - at least on the popular level.
"Man will not live off of bread alone, but by every word proceeding through the mouth of God." "You are not able to serve God and wealth.".
