It's all BS. What is more likely, that one particular faith is true, or that all are false?
Christianity

Christianity is the largest religion in the world with approximately 2.1 Billion followers WORLD WIDE. Keep in mind that the CIA's World Factbook gives the world population as 7,021,836,029 (July 2012 est.). It is important to note that many religions other than Christianity acknowledge that Jesus Christ exsisted and was an important guy although some insist that he was merely a prophet and not the Son of God. With that said, the guy above said, "What is more likely, that one particular faith is true, or that all are false?" Well, my answer to that is, "What is more likely, that 2.1 billion people are wrong (not including the millions that acknowledge Christ did exsist but don't accept he's their Savior and the billions who have lived and died through the years proclaiming Christ as their Savior some having left behind written word of their own personal experiences relating to their relationship with Christ) or that little ol you have been misinformed and not open to the Truth that is right in front of your face? Not to be mean, but get a clue buddy. Also, do some digging and you will find that many events and people menioned in The Bible were also mentioned in non related historical accounts. Archaeological evidence has substantiated many people and events in The Bible as well. Meanwhile, the big bang is just a simpleton's unfounded theory. No scientific evidence whatsoever but people are so willing to believe that hogwash over all other possibilities. I suppose some people prefer not to think too hard.
Also, atheists and the like, please spare us the argument that all Christians seem to be uneducated morons. That is a ridiculous unfounded statement. Christians in this area get a bad name because Kentucky, like a lot of the Southern United States, tends to be filled with a fair share of "Bible beating rednecks" that regurgitate a lot of choppy Bible verses that they've heard their "mommas" and "daddies" say throughout the years but the problem is that usually the verses they regurgitate are so badly misinterpreted or completely inaccurate that they just end up looking dumb and giving all Christians a bad name. Google a list of famous Christians. It is virtually endless and you will be shocked that some of our history's most celebrated thinkers, scientists, political figures, etc. were also Christians.

I am a Satanist. I believe there is no god of the bible. The bible has too many contradictions in it. I believe in not hurting animals like it has in the bible where their god commanded they kill and sacrifice animals to their god. I also don't believe in hurting little children but the god of the bible says to sing and dance as you bash babies against rocks (read psalm 137:9). I also feel that someone should not feel guilty for doing something that is natural (like having sex).

First off, worshipping Satan is like spitting in the wind. It is ignorant and pointless. I always find it absurd that people bash The Bible yet worship Satan. The Bible teaches that God created everything and everyone including Satan and if the Bible teaches nothing else, it is clear that Satan's role is to mislead people and lure them away from what is right and good. Every incident where Satan is mentioned paints him as someone who is purely out for himself and noone else. he certainly doesn't care about animals, hurting children, etc. Thus, you seem to be a bit conflicted and somewhat of a walking contradiction yourself, eh? A 15 year old struggling with the meaning of life possibly?
When referring to "contradictions", specifically what do you mean? The common "contradictions" that I hear from non Christians is the strict Old Testament Laws versus the instructions that Jesus gave his followers in the New Testament. Such as the Old Testament law states, "An eye for an eye" Yet, Jesus instructed us to "Turn the other cheek" The Old Testament and New Testament are one book yet a very different time period as most Christians (hopefully) know. The Old Testament Laws were instructions given to God's people before the coming of the Messiah (Jesus Christ). Therefore, when our Savior came to die for our sins, much of the Old Testament law was no longer valid to us. By this I mean the sacrifices, strict rules for what could and could not be eaten etc. Many of the bizarre instructions given in the Old Testament no longer applied with the coming of Jesus Christ. This is a VERY COMMON misconception among self proclaimed "Satanists" or "Atheists" such as yourself and the main problem here is that you have not taken the time to educate yourself regarding The Bible and the purpose of God sending his Son, Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for our sins which is clear from the ridiculous statements that you have made above. I strongly suggest that you actually do some research before you blindly state that The Bible has too many contradictions because this just sounds like something you've heard and regurgitated so many times that you actually believe it rather than taking the time to read The Bible and understand Christianity.

in reply to: Satanic Priestess"
“Just Because There is More Than One Perspective, Doesn’t Mean There’s a Contradiction!”
Sometimes when we read parallel accounts of the same event in the scriptures we seem to find minor contradictions in the way that the event is described. The event will sound slightly different in one Gospel, for example, when compared to another Gospel account. Aren’t all of these variations simply errors in the scriptures? Well, we’ve got to be careful not to confuse differences in perspective with Biblical ‘error’! Remember, no two witnesses to the same event will ever describe that event in exactly the same way. If the witnesses DID describe the event in exactly the same way, you should question their honesty!!! Think about it for a minute. The original assemblers of the scriptures could easily have changed the differing accounts after the fact so that they all said the same thing. Or they could simply have formed one large Gospel that included a single story of Jesus, and then destroyed all the competing accounts. But that’s not what they did. Instead, they left us with all four eyewitness accounts so that we could get all the differing perspectives. These differences are not the result of error; they are simply the result of perspective!
The Example of Judas
Let’s take a look at three examples of perspective that can be found in the New Testament Gospel accounts. The first example can be seen in the description of Judas’ death. Matthew records the way that Judas killed himself following his betrayal of Jesus, but this account seems to contradict Luke’s description in the Book of Acts:
Matthew 27:5
So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.
Acts 1:18-19
With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out.
Now if these accounts are taken very strictly, there does appear to be a contradiction! Did Judas give back the money or spend it to buy a field? Did Judas hang himself or did he fall to his death? Well, remember that whenever you see two ‘competing’ versions of an event, you need to ask yourself,“Am I reading two different perspectives of the same event? Is it possible that BOTH accounts are accurate and each eyewitness is only recording the part of the event that was particularly interesting to him or helps him to make a specific point about the event?” When you apply this approach to the story of Judas, the differences fade away. First, you need to spend a minute doing a little research in the Gospel of Matthew. The very next verse gives us a little more information:
Matthew 27:6-8
The chief priests picked up the coins and said,‘It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money.’ So they decided to use the money to buy the potter’s field as a burial place for foreigners.
Now things are becoming a little clearer for us! Put the two eyewitness accounts together and see what they say! Judas threw the money into the temple and left. The chief priests picked up the coins and said,‘It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money.’ So they decided to use the money to buy the potter’s field as a burial place for foreigners. Judas later went away and hanged himself in this very field that was purchased with HIS money. After he was dead, his body eventually fell from the noose and there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out. There is no contradiction or error here. When you have two separate accounts of the same event, remember that just because one eyewitness only records a portion, it does not mean the writer is not aware of the other part!

Those are the only two accounts that made "the cut" into the book you call the New Testament. There are also gospels of Judas, Mary, Thomas, and others. Any text that depicted Yeshua (Joshua aka Jesus) as a flawed human being were discarded during the Council of Nicea, the Council of Trullan, the Council of Trent and prior. Fortunately, the early church was unsuccessful in their efforts and these texts still survive. You may be surprised to learn that different Bibles have different numbers of books. The Catholic Bible and the Eastern Orthodox bibles have more books than the KJV found in most American churches. Everything else is called "The Apocrypha" and "non-canon".

The gospel of Judas does not indicate a betrayal at all. It shows that Judas was loved more than the other disciples (aside from Mary) and he simply fulfilled a request from his friend to disclose his whereabouts. Today, we call this "suicide by cop" and people are still martyring themselves to spark political and/or social change to this day.

The Infancy Gospel of Thomas tells a story of Jesus killing another boy when he was young out of rage--no surprise this story didn't make it into the New Testament.

Why is there no mention of the life of Jesus in the KJV from the ages of 12-25? Aren't these the ages when young men are the most rebellious, reckless, lustful, etc? Isn't that a convenient omission? Perhaps he traveled east and absorbed tenets of other faiths since he obviously started preaching about the ideas that already existed in the east when he returned.

Even if these books were observed as canon and gave us the full picture, the bible used today has been translated and revised SO many times that many ideas are lost. For example, the Greek word "parthenos" (Hrebrew "Almah") used to describe Mary means "maiden", not "virgin".

Satanists do not worship Satan. The Satanic church was started in the 60's by Anton Lavey and rejects all religions. It emphasizes that humans are animals and should not let a book make them feel their innate animal urges (anger, envy, lust, etc) are "wrong". Even though it is an irreligious denomination, they (for reasons I don't recall) practice pagan-esque rituals. To a true atheist, this is a waste of valuable time.
In other respects, Satanism is just atheism with a more narcissistic twist --since many Satanists believe "self-worship" is OK and an extension of Pride. Pride is also known as "the sin of Lucifer".

I am an Agnostic. I don't believe or disbelieve anything. I dont think there is enough evidence either way to prove or disprove any existence or deities, an afterlife, or anything of the sort.

I grew up in the most religious of households. I have a significant education in several world religions and made this decision because it seemed to be the most informed decision, I dont go around bashing Christians or hanging around atheists. I am alone in my decision, though others have come to the same conclusion as I, independently as well.

I find you confusing. You keep blasting about people killing animals and people in the Bible yet most Satanist still do the same thing.

  The most informed decision is "maybe"? A lot of agnostics are just scared to be wrong. Their conviction isn't strong enough to denounce the supernatural entirely. To each his own I suppose. I look at it this way:
  Since I don't believe in an afterlife, I live the one life I have to the fullest. With each decision I make, I ask myself if I may regret it later in life. You can still live by the virtues of the Bible without being religious. Following many of the virtues and commandments will help you avoid regrets. IF I am wrong, I still have no worries. The god of the Bible is supposed to be a "reader of hearts" and prefers a kind, tolerant atheist to a spiteful, hypocritical Christian. I do like surprises, but I am certain I'm not in for one.
  If there was a "creator god", he probably walked off a spaceship several tens of thousands of years ago and has since went on home. That would explain the "missing link" in our fossil record and why over 80% of human DNA is "non-coding" or "junk" DNA. The same is true for our agricultural crops. Hmmm.

You have to understand that a story could be told to a whole room of people and years later if they were asked to repeat it you will hear different versions.

I follow the simple path of the old religion.
I don't place myself in any specific branch of paganism for I am simply pagan. I also don't discredit any certain religions for to a fair degree for I cannot prove nor disprove anything. I am moved by my personal experience. My personal views and thoughts. I was raised in a strict christian home yet never felt the same as they did even though I tried. I dedicated myself to the christian ways but it didn't feel right so over the years I studied all different types of religion but only one kept pulling me back to it. From the moment I came across it as a child to now as a fully grown adult; paganism.

I accept the fact that everyone has a right to believe in what they want for everyone has their own path.
