    Did you know that you can sell your soul to the devil? If you do, you can have everything you have ever wanted. You can bargain too.

    Colleen Geez, relax, she's not a devil worshiper people. She's just having fun seeing the reactions. As I'm told often enough about my passions, lighten up! ;)
    FISH-O That is some pretty funny stuff Eggie!

    Colleen I just checked the poll on that page. Too funny. More people would sell their Soul for money than people who would never sell their Soul. I picked, "I would never sell my Soul" by the way as Souls can not be sold, not even to a fictional character. ;)

    As attractive as the offer is, when all is said and done in MY life, I would prefer eternity in Heaven.   The devil is the last place I would look for assurance of that.

    bulletman Ms Bob, i think Eggie is having a lend of us, well i hope she is.
    Benthere Thank you !
    bulletman Ms.Bob i had a look at Eggie's link, i voted for money, it doesn't matter thou cause i dont believe in the supernatural, but i do enjoy the films and book on the subject.

    I think it was Shakespeare who could argue this one.....

    Umbriel Shakespeare was capable of almost anything. But for this one, my money's on Marlowe.
    doolittle With Shakespeare you could argue it either way- which actually might be fun!

    I'm happy with life the way it is...might not be perfect, but I can live with it. Besides, if I had all I could think of wanting, there wouldn't be much room for pleasant surprises every now and then. I'd already have it, and would probably be bored with it after awhile.

    I want heaven.....do you have that ?


    If you do not then, what you have is worthless !

    eggplant Well, you will only need to stoke fires in exchange. You can even extend your life-span.
    Benthere There is no life worth living without God....and eternity is a long long long time !
    digger ...ergo,your life to date is worthless. (and everyone else's reading this)

    I don't think they are. Frankly,I find it offensive that you would denigrate your fellow akaqa members as being worthless.How ungodly of you, Benthere.
    Benthere Don't whine...nothing on earth beats heaven !
    digger That's not what you said. You said anything BUT heaven is worthless. Care to take a mulligan ?
    Benthere Tell me which would you pick:

    Heaven and all its perfection

    or

    Earth and all its imperfections and sins
    digger Stop trying to weasel yourself out of your original statement. Is everything other than heaven worthless? Yes or no ?
    Bob/PKB My interpretation of the comment in question implies that Benthere would not trade his relationship with and faith in God for any life that did not have one.
    It is equally offensive to have one's faith ridiculed by those members who have different or no faith. It is ludicrous for a person who does not believe in God to call anyone ungodly; it is like telling someone, "you are NOT unrealistic".
    Benthere Yes...yes...yes...I stand by what I said.

    Speaking of weaselly...which one would you pick...you never indicated ?
    digger @Bob. That may be your interpretation but that's not what he said.
    Bob/PKB digger: Benthere maybe didn't state his position in the least offensive possible way, but the meaning is pretty clear from what I know of Benthere. There is nothing in the world he would want in exchange for the relationship he has with God. Any other life, for him, would be worthless.
    Umbriel You may WANT Heaven, Benthere, but you haven't Been There. Assuming it exists, it may well be quite unlike your expectations.
    If it exists at all, and I wind up there, you can be sure it will be absolutely unlike mine, as I have none.
    Of course, one of the chief pleasures of Heaven has traditionally been to lean over the parapet, and enjoy the excruciations of the likes of myself in Hell.
    If that's how it works, you'll have won. Enjoy the company of your fellow winners!
    Benthere Heaven is and will be perfect !

    I wouldn't want to watch suffering...I can't imagine that being any part of heaven.
    digger (I accidentally posted this as a new comment.)

    Benthere "Tell me which would you pick:Heaven and all its perfection or Earth and all its imperfections and sins"

    This is a curious question to ask an atheist because it presumes that the atheist believes in the very existence of heaven in the first place.

    But I will humour you by confessing that I WOULD pick Heaven and all its perfection. I would also pick Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny over this Earth and all its imperfections and sins.
    Benthere Your choice will pay a big dividend when it really counts!

    Just remember your choice.
    digger I'm very comfortable with my choice. Are YOU ?
    Benthere Of course, or we would not be in debate !

    no way!

    eggplant Why?
    fjoel I don`t want to see,feel,smell,hear or talk to the devil.
    Umbriel Then, Fjoel, you will need to keep a long, perhaps a runcible, spoon about your person at all times. Who knows who might be next to you on that cramped, long-haul economy flight? And if he chooses to engage you in conversation, of a polite and neutral kind, would you refuse to respond, and summon the steward? I rather think not!

    I can't sell my soul to "A Something" I don't believe in.  This is my soul and it's not for sale.

    It's a con, for two reasons. The first is that, pace Yeats, the distinction between soul and self is unreal. A Dialogue Between Soul and Self was just Yeats talking to himself - as he did quite often.


    More important, there IS an absolutely best bargain. I stuck out for it, but it wasn't available, and since for a soul of my quality I demand nothing but the best imaginable, I wasn't closing for anything less.


    Some of you may have better luck, so the deal I offered was this: In return for my soul/self, I required that the Devil should love me, to the very depth of his being, irrevocably, above all other, and absolutely unselfishly. Moreover I required that once this love was established, he would be sublimely happy in that condition. You'd think that my soul plus sublime eternal happiness was worth a little unselfish love, but the b****** refused. I don't sell myself short, so I required his absence. The smell of hydrogen sulphide lingered a bit, but was gone by morning.

    I already did!!!Unfortunately Old Nick rang me and asked for his money back( I m joking!!!!!!!!I I beiieve in neither God nor  the devil)

    digger Bravo,Leo ! An agnostic can't possibly believe in the existence of an anti-deity without believing in the deity's existence in the first place.
    Umbriel Did he want all the cash, or just a partial refund. And anyway, how much?

    Crap you can't sell something that dosen't exist to someone that doesn't exist.  Then again, looking at that, I suppose you could. Does anybody want to buy my Air Guitar?  :-)

    doolittle LOL- I have a whole collection of my own- but thanks for the offer!
