Everyone knows Rarity is gonna end up with Tom.
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

Anyone read the Acorna series by Anne McCaffrey? Pretty awesome.

The first three were awesome. After that, I wasn't as into it.

Quite simply, what it says on the tin. What's your take on the horny red guy (if that's what he even is)? What myths or other literature do you like that pertain to him? Does he fulfill the trickster archetype in Christian mythology or is he something else altogether? What do the names Lucifer, Mephistopheles, Faust or Satan mean to you? What about the Devil in pop culture (tv shows, books, movies, music, even the tarot cards)? What do you know of the history?

 
My view is that what people attribute to Satan is the natural temptations and doubts that are ever present in our minds. Its that little voice in your head that questions everything and is involved in rash irresponsible decisions and crisis of faith. It completely natural and unavoidable for we are that type of creature.

I do believe that Lucifer is a real being. In fact I have a friend who is bonded with a fallen angel and he regularly refers to someone known as the traitor who I am assuming is Lucifer. Anyway, i believe that angels are created as messengers and soldiers by particular deities. Lucifer was one of Yaweh's angels that rebelled so he was thrown out of Yaweh's realm. So him and his fellow fallen are like spoiled brats going around saying, "Oh Daddy was mean to me so I'm gonna break all his toys!" (Thank you Supernatural).

How can you not believe in Santa Claus? You've said you're claimed by Odin and Odin is clearly Santa Claus.

 
OMG that is beyond awesome. I am going to email that to every christian I know.
Really?  So, hey, want to go fishing?  I\'ve got a telescope, and it\'s going to be a dark night, so we should see the fish really well.
...what, I\'m not talking about fishing?  That\'s stargazing?  It\'s all doing-stuff, so it\'s the same thing, right?
