Satanists are Christians. He is a purely Judeo-Christian-Islam concept. Outside of your religion he does not exist.

As pretty much anything can be appointed as a god from a dead pharoah to a volcano to a goat it would be difficult to entirely disprove his existence. Now to prove that any one god concept is correct... or even to properly define what a god is...

Anything as powerful as a creator god would take no interest whatsoever in the affairs of man. We would be little more than viruses to such a being.

<quoted text>that is incorrect. the Serbs wanted to keep their christian othodox state alive. as they had against ottoman rule. the Croats were catholics that didn't want to be ruled by the christian orthodxy.

where did you hear the mulims there were alquada style terrorists?

for some good intel on the area , read the book "Balkan Ghosts" by Robert Kaplan.

or just goolge if you want to become moderately informed...
You confuse nationalism with religion.

The Serbs wanted to hold Yugoslavia together (Milosevic was the Lincoln of the conflict).

The Croats wanted their independence from Belgrade (much like Washington, Franklin, Jefferson...).

It was only the Bosniak Moslem radicals whose main agenda was religious (the Bin Ladens of the conflict).

Naturally the Clinton administration aligned itself with the enemies of western secular civilization.

Charlie boy, here is something I'm confused about:

First you declared that Woodtick believed in the Judeo-Chriatian god.
Then you declared that he believed in the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
Does that mean that Woodtick abandoned his belief in the Judeo-Chriatian god and converted to the Flying Spaghetti Monster?
Or is he a polytheist who believes in both the Judeo-Christian god AND the Flying Spaghetti Monster?
I am asking you instead of Woodtick because I'm sure you can serve as his spokesman better than he can.

Christianity is polytheistic. There is God. There are also Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. There is Satan. There are angels and demons. Folks pray to Mary and to the saints. An endless assortment of minor dieties.

There are probably more gods in Christianity than in Hinduism.

"Indeed, it would be rather juvenile to misspell God simply in order to insult theists. If such an atheist had so little respect for another person, why even waste the time writing to them in the first place, much less deliberately trying to hurt them at the same time? While that may actually be the case with some atheists who write the word 'god' with a lowercase 'g,' "

http://atheism.about.com/od/doesgodexist/a/ca...

"The use of capitalization, as for a proper noun, has persisted to disambiguate the concept of a singular God, specifically the Christian God, from pagan deities for which lower case god has continued to be applied, mirroring the use of Latin deus. Pronouns referring to God are also often capitalized and are traditionally in the masculine gender, i.e. "He", "Him", "His" etc.[12][13] However, some people have referred to God in feminine terms, such as "She" and "Her". "

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_ (word)

"god-– Lowercase this when used as a prefix. Examples: godchild, goddaughter, godfather, godlike, godliness, godmother, godsend, godson, godspeed. Do not hyphenate
gods and goddesses – Capitalize God and similar names of the deity of a monotheistic religion: Allah, God, God the Father, Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, Jehovah, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer, the Son of God, the Son of Man, Yahweh. Lowercase the personal pronouns he, him, thee, they, thou, who, whose, in references to monotheistic deities. Lowercase gods andgoddesses in references to the deities of polytheistic religions, but capitalize formal names. Lowercase god in references to false gods. He made money her god."

What's the fastest growing religion?

Atheism? LOL

Study: Atheists Have Lowest 'Retention Rate' Compared to Religious Groups

Only about 30 percent of those who grow up in an atheist household remain atheists as adults. This "retention rate" was the lowest among the 20 separate categories in the study.

There were 1,387 atheists (weighted) in the survey. Four-hundred thirty-two weighted respondents said they were raised atheist. Of those, 131 self-identified as atheist.

Continued:

Gray also noted that, "of those raised as atheists, 30% are now affiliated with a Protestant denomination, 10% are Catholic, 2% are Jewish, 1% are Mormon, and 1% are Pagan."

Jehovah's Witness, congregationalist and holiness churches had the next lowest retention rates at 37 percent, 37 percent and 32 percent, respectively. Thirty-eight percent of those who grew up with no particular religious faith or belief system remained that way.

Hindus had the highest retention rate at 84 percent, followed by Jews (76 percent), Muslims (76 percent), Greek Orthodox (73 percent), Mormons (70 percent) and Catholics (68 percent).

Baptists had the highest retention rate of the Protestant Christian categories at 60 percent, followed by Lutheran (59 percent) and Pentecostal (50 percent).

“Atheists abandon their beliefs more often than people in other religious groups, study finds”

A new study has found that people raised in an atheist home abandon those beliefs as adults more often than people raised with other religious belief systems, putting atheism at a 30 percent retention rate. Conclusions and interpretations of the study are that atheists are more often "made" as adults rather than "raised." The highest retention rates are in the Hindu faith, which holds onto about 84 percent of adherents.

Those who grow up in an atheist household are least likely to maintain their beliefs about religion as adults, according to a study by Georgetown University's Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA).

Only about 30 percent of those who grow up in an atheist household remain atheists as adults. This "retention rate" was the lowest among the 20 separate categories in the study.

The word "evolution" was used in the primary theory because as the meaning of this word implies, it was the BELIEF that the current species raised from former species that were inferior, worst, and simpler. Even Darwin's conclusions stated that Natural Selection works solely "with slow and short favorable changes", something that we know was a complete and infantile error.

When evolutionists found out that their theory was false as a seven dollar bill, they transformed the word "evolution" into a technical term, with a different meaning in Biology as simply "change" regardless of the direction.

Still, they talk jargon when the say that species do "evolve" because such new technical term "evolution" cannot by any means be used as a regular verb.

Then, we can find evolutionists as deceivers of the truth with respect to their own theory, its origins, its failures, and today its confusion by using jargon to survive between the ignorant.

In reality, by applying the laws of physics, because we are formed by elements, the only tendency of the species is to degenerate or decay.

There wasn't, there isn't, there will not be any evolution at all but simple degenerate steps in the species. To say different is complete nonsense.
