    Escape the devil? What is funny about this is in "Jesus" based religions, suicide, no matter the reason, is a ticket to hell since you are taking the one gift god gave to you. So way to go people, you escape the devil to land in hell. At least the baby is safe, under the light of an entity thhat wiped the earth`s population. Wait, did I say safe?

    13 people jump to their deaths? Pretty sure the first words in the video are "A baby has died and ten people have been injured."

    There are devils in just about every religion, you know. Various African religions have their equivalent and the video specifically said he was from Africa (implying it was a relevant point), so it seems more likely their religion was not Christianity.

    The funny thing is that I read a article about this story where they described it as ,,an apparent case of of mistaken identity``. Apparent? Really?? So there was in fact an off chance that this man was Satan and not just a normal man, because that`s what the ,,apparent`` implies.

    Yeah....and those people fight it. No run like lemmings over a cliff and kill a child that has yet to sin.

    The way i see it, depending on your sin hell is not all that bad. Considering it is the belief that your version of hell matches the sin that sent you there. So I cant wait to spend eternity in a tittybar drinkn whiskey and spending my evenings with unmarried women.

    @ heureux: to be prejudiced means to judge something based on no prior knowledge (PRE-judge...get it?) Religious zealots have proved time and again to be, well, stupid. So while I do not agree that every religious person should die, I do tend to think that based on actions like these, they`re gonna weed themselves out of humanity soon anyway.

    o be prejudiced means to judge something based on no prior knowledge (PRE-judge...get it?) Religious zealots have proved time and again to be, well, stupid. "

    Your assumption that religious people are stupid is a case of prejudice. You, personally, could not hold your own in a debate with any Jesuit, and most of the brightest minds in human history, were people of faith.

    "So while I do not agree that every religious person should die, I do tend to think that based on actions like these, they`re gonna weed themselves out of humanity soon anyway."

    That`s not a very intelligent thing to say, given that religion has existed for as long as there are records, of any kind, left by human beings, and will, barring some catastrophic disaster on a global scale, out-live you.

    Perhaps you should not call most of humanity stupid.

    If there was a Devil, do you really think jumping from a two-story window would set him off your tracks, when it would give very little resistance to a human, nonetheless a nearly all-powerful being?

    As opposed to religion? Which judges based on your sexuality, you gender, you lifestyle, your beliefs. Also prejudice isn`t a noun.

    "Proving yet again that atheism is a prejudice and nothing more."

    I hate describing myself as an Atheist, although I guess since it is accurate I am one... I don`t think of myself like that.

    Only because aside from when religion directly affects my life (not very often) and the opportunity to troll a forum (a little more often)... I think I am pretty indifferent about it all together.

    The only reason I comment now is because you have unwittingly (or perhaps wittingly) stirred the pot here. I find it interesting when that happens.

    I don`t see why this is a religious debate, but one on sanity. Dementia causes people to see weird poo which they react to. The others simply broke a rational rule of don`t panic and don`t listen to a psycho. People don`t normally jump out windows calling people devils in any statistic, making this an anomaly.

    @ Swisskid

    Do you really think any of that would work. Do you really think if god actually had the power to smite his opposite he would? Of course not. Otherwise it would have happened already.

    you take away the thought of Satan and suddenly people panic when things CONTINUE to go wrong. God needs scapegoat for his own misgivings. thats why He keeps Satan around. Also on the counter side...Satan needs god. You cant send people to hell for commiting a sin if there is nothing governing the sin and its definition.

    So by logic, if you worship god, you worship Satan, and vise-versa.

    I still think the wrong entity is being worshiped anyway. I mean, you are cast down from heaven, give god the middle finger and the full montey on the way down. Do you REALLY think he is going to do Gods bidding by punishing the wicked? Or does Satan embrace the wicked and chill with the catterpillar in the rabit hole smoking a giant hukah for peace.

    Satan isn`t going to punish people in hell, that`s a common misconception fuelled by every depiction of hell on tv and in film. Hell is the place that God built to punish Satan, and also where the wicked will be punished.

    As for religion in general, extremism is bad, m-kay? Jumping out a window isn`t likely to help much if the Devil really were in your apartment! LMAO!
