Mainstream Christianity believes that Satan is an actual entity with powers to transform himself, travel instantly all over the world, live in an unearthly place, and have the ability to influence if not completely take over human consciousness.

Call it what you will, but Satan is a god, much like the gods of Roman and Greek times. He may not be omnipotent and all powerful, none of the Roman gods were either. But clearly he possesses powers of a godly nature. The same can be said for Demons and even Angels. All Gods, with their terminology changed out of convenience.

I'm not saying polytheism is a bad thing or a good thing, makes no difference to me. But why not call it what it is?

Christianity also defines God as being everything (at least in some part) and simultaneously superior to everything.

Just to expand your parameters a bit...;)

I thought Satan was an angel that had been banished from heaven.

Of course there is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

They say its 3 in 1 but it sounds like 3 to me.

Not to mention the fact that the best verses that support the trinity were added to the Bible in the 9th century or something like that.

i don't base my beliefs on fear. :)

after doing heavy research, the only thing i am sure I know about God is that Christianity isn't right

Stroking each others hate for Christianity is a weekly event now in the Tinderbox, eh?

How is anything I posted considered hate? A bit sensitive aren't you?

Compared to thousands of years of people stroking each others' love for Christianity using little or no logic but misguided intuition?

Donald Rumsfeld can do all of that, is it a big deal?
