"We may not pay Satan reverence, for that would be indiscreet, but we can at least respect his talent” - Mark Twain
"But your daughter doesn't say she's a demon; she insists she's the devil himself, and that's the same thing as saying you're Napoleon Bonaparte! You see?" - William Peter Blatty, The Exorcist
Another great discussion featuring Dan Sawyer! Dan and Danny discuss the Bible and the myths surrounding the character of Satan. Dan Sawyer says he's and atheist, but he actually believes in Satan! Listen to find out why!

Point to Ponder: Believers are actually pretty optimistic about the world: if only we could get rid of this cosmic troublemaker, everything would be okay.
Quote to Remember: "I cannot omit calling attention to the interesting fact that whereas the central Christian symbolism is a Trinity, the formula of the unconscious mind is a quaternity. As a matter of fact even the orthodox Christian formula is not quite complete, because the dogmatic aspect of the evil principle is absent from the Trinity, the former leading a more or less awkward existence as [the] devil." - Carl Jung, "Dogma and Natural Symbols"
Question to Consider: Doesn't a literal belief in Satan implicitly mitigate the severity of human sinfulness?
