Coming Attraction

Devil, n. The author of all our woes and proprietor of all the good things in the world. He was made by the almighty, but brought into the world by woman.

How many people can say they've been reviewed by the devil? I mean, besides Charlie Daniels and just about every other author, actor, musician, poet and job applicant. One day I'll update this definition but for now we'll just call him the alter-ego of a really funny dog and a really nice guy. Extra credit update: The great enemy of every Christian, Jew and Muslim except for each other.

If you read the Quran Doug it states that Adam was also lured by the devil. I think somewhere down the road a woman was blamed and as of today no one questions that maybe somewhere along the way someone lied!

It could very well have been Adam who lured Eve!

morningdew said...

Oh! One other thing...

It was God who allowed the devil his time! not woman!

Doug said...

Salaam, Morningdew. It was Ambrose Bierce who made the comment about the devil and is probably on intimate terms at this point.

Devil, n. Said to be the key nemesis within the Judeo-Christian mythos, despite merely having a "D" in evil.
Responsible for much of radio.

Gabriel, is AMFM YHWH spelled backwards in any language?

The Devil said...

Sure I was brought into the world by woman! Her name was Weirsdo! Hurry home, Mom!

Doug said...

I miss her, too, son.

Doug: you are forgetting Zoroastrians and us Manichaeans

Tara Tainton said...

Another bit of brilliance! That last sentence rings very, very startingly true.

Doug said...

SeƱor Enrique (Papi Brujo,) I knew I forgot to cast aspersions on someone. My apologies.

Thank you, again, Tara for commenting and kindly. Sadly, that's what I thought when I wrote it.

Devil. The voice of desire buoyed by lack of restraint.

Doug said...

Desire without restraint. Could apply to the Devil or the internet, really.
