Removing the chocolate from the chocolate milk is a far greater crime than tipping over the cup. Purple Book Equine shall be punished!

Okay. The satan or satan’s depicted in the bible are entirely different from what is portrayed in pop culture or even by your average Christian. He’s barely mentioned for one thing and is more god’s appointed faith tester then an arch enemy. I know this. But it’s boring. If I’m gonna Reinterpret a character I’m gonna reinterpret the fun version.

And If telling a guy to eat some fruit so he’d grow some brains and put some damn pants on Is sinful, Then I don’t wanna be righteous.

That makes the idea about Satan that I was told, that he still serves God, but serves him by trying to show that humans aren’t worth the effort instead than what God tells him, seem more possible. It still goes into the "humans are special" way of thinking, but that’s the same for most religions.

Then you’d be projecting pagan influence from Prometheus! But that’s okay, that’s what the Catholics who got ahold of it first did. Interesting, then, that you miss out on the fact that in fact, when Satan appears at all it’s only to make a bet with God over Job’s faith and he’s allowed to casually walk into Heaven and talk to God. Also, it’s only a Satan, from "opposer" or, well, "devil’s advocate" in Hebrew. Sounds like you might be a Gnostic, too, then.

And the whole point of that was that it wouldn’t have been indecent had they not eaten the fruit, so…

I prefer the interpretation that he gave mankind knowledge as an act of cosmic rebellion against a cruel and oppressive god. I may not have read paradise lost but I have read the bible and I gotta tell ya, God doesn’t come off as the good guy in that book.

At least satan had the decency to tell Adam that his knob was showing.

People say that, but I’m not sure THEY have. Paradise Lost actually portrays him as a petty, vengeful dick who tries to get the moral high ground by being eloquent, but basically the kind of guy who’d pull the wings off flies…and it just so happens that humans are like flies to him.
