There’s no way the devil exists…and while we’re at it, hell doesn’t exist either.
Agnostic: a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as god) is unknown and probably unknowable; broadly : one who is not committed to believing in either the existence or the nonexistence of god.
That’s pretty much how I respond to people when they ask me if I believe in god.
However, the odds of a god/creator/etc existing is still EVER SO SLIGHTLY greater than 0%.
Whereas the odds of the devil existing = 0%.
You see, the whole idea of what god is and means can vary (whether it’s an entity that has some amount of control of our lives and futures, or a creator who created our world then moved on, etc, etc).
On the flip side, the whole concept of a devil is just really stupid. The idea that evil or misfortune in the world can be credited to such an entity makes zero sense. Sure, I’m poking fun at the fire, the pitchforks, and the horns, but even if you don’t believe in these cliches, but still believe the devil exists….well, you are a moron.
If anything, it’s probably one force that controls the “unexplainables” in our universe. I’m not saying god is also the devil, or is even good or bad (to be general). If anything, God just “is,” and that’s it. Believing in more than one god is almost as dumb as believing in the devil, because something had to create those other gods.
Maybe what I am is a monotheistic agnostic.
I’ll keep working on it though for you. I should have another 60 or 70 years to try to figure this out.
…but you can relax now, I’ll probably get back to writing about farts and boogers next post.
