If there was a Hell I know I'd be right there with Gaea and AnOn- and all the rest of my friends! But, seriously, I don't believe in it at all.

Hmmmm...We'll see what kind of argument, I mean, discussion this turns into. I'm sure this will be a HOT topic!

Perhaps not in the devil...but in evil yes, as well as good. There has to be "notions" (not the right word) of Good and Evil.

Way, way south.
I believe I heard this in a movie one time (I think that's where I heard it), and I always thought it was interesting (and I paraphrase here):

The best trick the Devil has ever done is to get people to believe that he doesn't exist.
