*insert Fantasy Here* Is Of The Devil.


Recommended Posts

I posted a thread like this sometime back but it's a topic that I'm sure many of you have experienced.

 

Where do these beliefs that something that is fantasy(like say, a certain franchise) is form the devil? Brainwashing? Lack of research and understanding? To scare people? This is something that I've been questioning recently and I'd like some input.

It is laziness and mental apathy that people who dislike thinking for themselves use.

 

So does this mean that all that money harry potter made is devils blood money?

"I don't like/get/appreciate it, therefore it is of the devil!"

 

It's also very convenient to paint specific things that have power within, especially, the young adult community as "of the devil"!

To scare people?

 

Bingo. Instilling irrational fear is the trademark of Christianity.

 

 

I thought general irrational behavior was their trade mark? Dark ages anyone?

If whatever it is doesn't include praising jesus in every other sentence then it is OF THE DEVIL. :-)

 

So my mind wonders if porn stars recited bible verses while having sex would the Christians approve of this kind of porn?

+ is extremely popular (harry potter,pokemon,..) . popular things that doesn't include Jesus is of course of the devil (because success without Jesus is not possible GONZ9729CustomImage1539775.gif  )and a plan by the devil to lure people.

1)  Brainwashing?  Yes, often religious indoctrination is a source of believing that fantasy is real.  It usually starts in childhood, by parents, other kin and other adults.  It can continue into the teenage years.  All of this is before the person's brain has developed enough to "think for itself".  Indeed, the indoctrination usually includes some version of "don't think for yourself - you are not worthy of thinking for yourself - just repeat after me the following religious fantasies".

 

2)  To scare people?  Yes, many religions cultivate, encourage and tend the natural fears that we all have.  They do this by injecting superstition, mythology and dogma into your fear.  Afraid of the dark?  Yes, the devil lives in the dark and, if you don't worship my particular sky fairy, the devil will take you away.

 

3)  Lack of research and understanding?  Likely, if the research and understanding is based on rational thinking.  If it's based on memorizing lies and misrepresentations from, for example, creationist whore websites, then no.

Pokemon is evil because you are calling them forth like demons. 

 

And they evolve   GONZ9729CustomImage1539775.gif

 

 

Haha, I burst into so much laughter reading that. I remember that uproar. They're trying to subliminally brainwash us into believing evolution by having these little monsters "evolve."  And it was such a BIG deal that the guy created them from dreams, like his dreams had been influenced by the devil or something. Just means the guy was super creative and probably in touch with his inner child. I loved me some Pikachu and Raichu! happydance.gif   

My mom used to have so many fits about anime. It didn't bother me but it sure burned my brother up. I mean, I think about it now and it's pretty hilarious. My brother asking me not to tell Mom he was watching Dragonball Z. Because, you know, that's sooo horrible for a 13 year old boy, LOL.

 

 I miss my GameBoy Color now.  I want to go play Pokemon, lol!

It actually made me a bit nervous since in the new Pokemon generation, we're getting a Pokemon with the Pokedex number 666. It's going by numerical order but still. The kid who converted me said he was demon possessed because of Pokemon. Yes, really. I have not heard that even from others who believe that.

 

And Yu-Gi-Oh too. I got nervous+loss of interest so I stopped collecting for several months back in 2011.

That kid probably was raised in a very strict, fundamentalist Christian home and he probably actually believed he was possessed by them.  But just because HE believed it doesn't make it true. Pokemon doesn't possess anyone, it was just a creative and lucrative brainchild of one very creative and lucky man who also knew business. I wouldn't worry about 666, it's just a number. A lot of people are superstitious about it even some non-Christians. After awhile, it gets kind of funny, like some buildings purposefully leave off the elevator the floor 666 or change it because so many people get paranoid of that number. 

 

My brother was super big in Yu Gi Oh and he's fine.

Yeah, with Yugioh, I actually feel like that kid may have just believed what he was told. I really wish I didn't say anything though.

Because certain Xians think that anything violent or supernatural that isn't about biblegod must be banned. Ghost movies are bad because somewhere in an obscure corner of the bible that only a pastor would know, it says ghosts don't exist. The Grudge contradicts the bible. Even though Edward and Bella never have sex before marriage, Twilight is ungodly because they do make out quite a bit, and the bible never confirmed that god did create vampires. Also, Bella is so obsessed with him that he must have become a kind of idol. I hate it when Xians analyze whether sparkly vampires might possibly harm teenage girls' walk with gawd. They're paranoid--most Edward-crazy girls will be over it by the time they're 25. Xians have to worry that most things could be unholy because if they don't, they might sin.

The usual thought process:

 

Hmm, something that people are enjoying

 

...but it's not bible class or devo

 

...I don't understand it

 

...it involves using their imagination

 

...imagination is kind of like magic

 

...It's the DEVIL!
