...to be one or the other? The Good Guy or the Bad Guy?

Bruce Almighty, the newest Jim Carrey flick, prompted this thread. :) What I disliked about that flick was that they didn't show the other guy...you know; the other side? :evil:

Think of the possibilities, on EITHER side. To be omnipotent, but to have an equal on the other side of the fence. You make the sun come out, he makes it rain. You make flowers grow, he starts a forest fire. You bring an entire species into existance, he makes a comet hit the planet.

Discuss...I'll watch....:)

Didn't Adam Sandler do a film where he played the son of the devil?

If you were the good guy it would probably get annoying quickly. If you were the bad guy it would be amusing for slightly longer.

Rain is good. Forest fires encourage new growth. Comets eliminate mistakes. :)

Um, both sides are most certainly NOT equal. God created 3 groups of angels. Lucifer (I think) was the most beautiful angel that God made, so beautiful in fact that he thought that he was better than God and sat on God's throne (or something like that). As punishment, God sent Lucifer away. Lucifer took 1/3 of the Angels God created with him.

So the devil is actually the most beautiful angel God ever created, but is still only an angel.

God > Angels


Not trying to crap, but just thought I would set the record straight.

ponder about that for a second.
Ah, yes. This is the statement I love to pose to the "halo sporting set." :D They despise it when I overturn their precious applecart.

There can be no heaven without a hell... Oh, but there's no such thing as hell, right? :Q

That would mean there is no heaven...and NO JESUS! :Q OM(X)<--insert deity of choice here. :Q

Can the record be proven? You speak like it is fact.

Highlander, circa 1984 or so...in the MOVIE THEATER. Yes, it was in the movies before it was on cable TV...I know you find that hard to believe. :p

Give 'em both flamethrowers, one Nissan apiece (with a coke in the cupholder), and let Bruce Lee choose his side.

Assuming you were still sadled with a human mentality, you'd be bored out of your mind in no time flat! If you're the man upstairs, there's nothing you wouldn't know, simply because you've built the whole system. Of course there's always the fact that you could modify things to make them more interesting... As for the one in the basement, well, he's been around almost as long and so would probably come pretty close in terms of knowledge. As his goal is upsetting the order of things, that might provide enjoyment for a while, though the lack of ability to create new things and modify existing things would be a problem later.

LOL!!! @ Howard's quote

It may be that our role on this planet is not to worship God, but to create him.
