Quote of the Day: "Intellectualism is the work of the Devil"

 "The whole foundation of Christianity is based on the idea that intellectualism is the work of the Devil. " -- Frank Zappa

The Devil makes an appearance on the pages of the Ball Bounces. The deceiver, the snake, the dragon, the evil one, the tempter, the liar, the accuser of the brethren. Reality is both material and spiritual, and the devil is part of the spiritual landscape of reality.

Evil exists. It is real. And it predates man. It will ultimately be completely defeated and abolished. Guaranteed. I've read the Book.

again, the limits of my knowedge: if evil predates man, on what day was it created? Your book is a little vague on it.

Seems the great deceiver was the guy who decided to put a snake in an apple tree, but before the snake, there doesn't seem to be much mention of evil...

"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
