Have someone checked definition of the word "Satan"
You'd be quite surprised to what it means. It means "Adversary" Basically being opposed. Which would be us. Even though there are plenty of evidence that the abrahamic religions aren't true. I could tell about it, but i feel it would end up with a wall of text if i did. Giving source and archeological facts etc etc.

But i guess it works. Kinda gives you the high ground.. sneaky Angel

I always thought it meant "scapegoat" Tongue

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.
