In Defense Of Satan

By James Donahue

In addition to their "grandfather" god image, the Christians and other world religious groups have created a humanoid persona of an evil villain, or a negative balance in the person of the Devil, or Satan.

Every school child knows this image. He appears in a red covering, or skin, has a long pointed tail, horns projecting from his forehead, offers an evil grin and holds a pitchfork in his hands. Sometimes he sports a pointed goatee beard. As the story is told, Satan is the fallen angel Lucifer who rebelled against God in heaven and was condemned to rule over inhabitants of the Earth.

Strangely, this story cannot be supported by Biblical reference, which has always been a primary rule for fundamental students of the scriptures. Both Lucifer and Satan are spoken of, but they are not linked, Satan is not described, and the story of the fall of Lucifer is so vaguely explained that there could be many different interpretations.

It appears in the Old Testament Book of Isaiah, 14:12-14: "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God . . . I will be like the most High."

This planet, at least in the Christian story, is thus the Devil's playground. All humans born on it are condemned to be subjects of Satan. Christians believe all humans are born in sin and remain in condemnation until they accept the redemptive spirit of Jesus who went into Hell, the place of fire and judgment, and suffered the punishment for all who will believe this story. To escape this terrible fate people must submit their bodies to possession by the spirit that claims to be Jesus.

It is the employment of fear to drive people into a system of seeking this "salvation" from an invisible spirit.

The Old Testament stories passed down by the Hebrews are filled with references to an evil spirit force that brings about all kinds of trouble for humanity. These include the serpent that tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden, and numerous other interesting demonic characters like Abaddon, Apollyon, Beelzebub and Belial.

Satan is described in the Bible text as being presumptuous, proud, powerful, wicked, malignant, subtle, deceitful, fierce and cruel.

In our research for this article we found some anonymous writers willing to defend the concept of the "devil," which appears to exist in every world culture. One wrote: "In nearly all the theologies, mythologies and religions, the devils have been much more humane and merciful than the gods. No devil ever gave one of his generals an order to kill children and to rip open the bodies of pregnant women."

Yet another unnamed author penned the following: "There is nothing in this planet's history, biblical or otherwise, or knowledge from any source, that remotely alludes to the possibility that the poor devil ever stole a pin or killed a living soul. In fact, he never killed a fly, or hurt a single individual, man or beast. He never lost his temper, told a lie, or even cursed a teeny little curse. Who in all history can lay claim to such a pious and noble existence."

In our research we learned that Belial is a powerful king among the spiritual forces. Catholic mythology says Belial was the second angel created after Lucifer. The church lists him among the fallen angels and suggest that he was possibly involved with Lucifer in the events that went on in the garden. What that may suggest, if there is any validity to the story, is that Belial was an alien involved in a genetic manipulation that established humans on Earth.

The historical record shows that Beelzebub also is another character, probably fictitious, established as a patron god of ancient Palestine. Beelzebub was said to have been the Lord of the Flies and prince of evil spirits. His name is an apparent derivative of Baal-Zebul, or "Prince Baal," a god of the Canaanites and a primary Goetia Spirit. Thus it is difficult to connect Beelzebub with the person of Satan.

Abaddon is a Hebrew name that refers to a place of ruin and destruction. The Greeks rendered the name to Apollyon to describe an angel-prince of hell and the minister of death and havoc on Earth. Thus there is a natural thought that the word is a reference to Satan. But the name really is linked to the demon Asmodeus, a spirit of impurity.

The constant Biblical reference to Satan as a serpent or dragon is a powerful clue as to just who this character really is. We suggest this is reference to the Kundalini, the esoteric spiritual force that exists within each human. This is, in effect, the DNA coil. It is this altered DNA that sets us apart from all of the other creatures on this planet. In changing our DNA, the alien (Lucifer) put something of himself in each of us. We also possess a spark . . . that light so-to-speak . . . appears to be the soul that all creatures of the Earth share. It is the light of the god that exists within us all.

Another odd custom among Christians is the celebration of the so-called birth of Jesus at the shortest and consequently darkest day of the year. This celebration is highlighted by a visit by a red cloaked spirit that flies through the air on a magical sleigh. We call him Santa Claus and encourage our children to look forward to the event because he brings materialism in the form of toys and other gifts.

What Santa may really be, like the Satan myth, is a subconscious warning of a looming judgment on us all if we allow our planet to die under our feet, and we consequently go extinct.

This judgment which appears to coming down on  us even as these words are being written, will be everything we have imagined in our descriptions of Hell. It is an eternal and unending agony. Our perfect home in the universe will be a dry barren rock subject to extreme heat and cold. It will be impossible for any of us to return to it in new lives, as we have since the dawn of our creation, once it is destroyed.

This red cloaked entity is known among the aboriginal people of the world in various forms. A most common name is Huk-tuk-tu. It is the spirit of fire and death. It is a force that will be unleashed on us all if we turn our backs on the creator.

So yes, there is a myth concerning a creature that projects a reddish aura that exists among us. As the story is told, It has been slumbering for thousands of years, some say deep in the catacombs below the Vatican. Now, as the world moves toward a dynamic shift in human consciousness, it is said this beast is awakening. It has been controlling the alien forces that exist among us but now that the spiritual war has come to Earth, its days are numbered.
