(Hebrew: שָּׂטָן meaning "enemy" or "adversary, Arabic شيطان shaitan, meaning; "astray", "distant", or sometimes "devil") “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” Satan/Saturn is the god of this world and to a large extent the god of physical creation, the god of law, revenge, war, time, and mind, the adversary. What was the only thing Satan did "wrong"? He rebelled against God (sounds familiar?), but wouldn't you? Look at what kind of a God he is! He needlessly murders people in nearly every book and passage of the Old Testament! He created an entire race of people for the sole purpose of catering to his own ego, and then gets mad when we don't live up to our appointed role in life or question one of his decisions! He is a ruthless, dictatorial, narcissistic, sociopathic mass murderer. On the other hand, we have Satan, someone who hasn't treated the human race like disposable garbage, someone who has given knowledge to humanity rather than trying to suppress it. It's time to stop this needless slandering of Satan's name. Satan has done nothing to deserve it. He hasn't killed anyone, publicly exonerated slavery, demanded our worship, or threatened us with eternal damnation for not doing his bidding. It is God who is guilty of all these crimes. Satan's done nothing but rebel against a repugnantly unjust authority figure, and he gets eternal damnation and association and blame for all evil on Earth! Meanwhile, Martin Luther King, Jr. gets a holiday named after him, and Satan was far more courageous than King was. After all, Satan stood up to an all-powerful narcissist who made it clear that he never would change his mind on any issue. King at least had a democracy to work with!! Satan, like Prometheus, gave knowledge to humanity by giving Eve the fruit from the forbidden tree. Because of Satan, humanity gained knowledge of good and evil, according to Genesis. Since we couldn't have possessed knowledge of good and evil before eating the fruit, Adam and Eve couldn't have known that eating the fruit was evil, so it seems a little harsh to punish them as severely as God did. Satan gave humans the true capacity for moral judgment, unlike God, who simply expected everyone to mindlessly obey his orders.
