Quote# 87539

I've seen videos on youtube where stars admit to selling their soul to the devil in order to become successful and famous. I've also heard about musicians channeling spirits to get inspiration for their music and to help them perform. Michael Jackson for one. The way Beyonce talks about her alter ego Sasha Fierce definitely sounds like she's being possessed by a spirit that's performing through her.

Well yeah, it's because when you offer to sell your soul to God in exchange for being rich and famous, He never keeps His side of the bargain.

Your name is surprisingly accurate.

You really think its that easy to become successful and famous, do you?

Or they're just highly talented/lucky?

Occam's Razor, it works.

I suppose you've watched The Devil And Daniel Mouse as well -- that's all the proof you could need.

When they talk about selling their soul to the devil, chances are they don't mean it literally.

5/27/2012 7:09:13 AM



Oh, please. Just because you heard about something on the internet doesn't mean it's true. These stars may have been doing that to get publicity, or to fuck with people like you.

You are either consciously lying or delusional. There is no third option.

Citation, please. In this country any celebrity who admits non-christian affiliation ( and isn't using it as a figure of speech in place of 'I had to sacrifice a lot and work my fucking BALLS off!')is subject to a 'witch hunt' and regular protests every time they go somewhere to do a show. Ask Marilyn Manson.

I call bullshit.

Yeah, it's not like creative types never anthropomorphize their creativity/talent/inspiration.

But since you are a fundy & therefore incapable of comprehending the idea of symbolism/metaphor/analogy, all I have to say to you Ms. aptlynamed_lady00 is to kindly shut up.

Well, when I hear some performers I'm tempted to believe they did SOMETHING to become successes in the absence of talent, but as devils, demons and souls are fictional, it's patently something else.

Thinking Allowed

Strange, because I've heard plenty of celebrities say that the christian god gave them a talent to work thought him. It keeps the numbers even.

I've seen where some people devote their entire lives to a mythical Jewish zombie, who most likely never existed, reversing all that he supposedly taught to meet their own ends, and to his "father", another mythical being, the most despicable tyrant in all humanities' imagination, whom they adore and worship - never getting a damn thing in return for all their efforts.
Surprisingly, few ever express much talent except for the ability to fleece the gullible. It seems as if they're possessed by stupidity.

No doubt medieval_lady83 has a medieval outlook on everything in life.

"I've seen videos on youtube where stars admit to selling their soul to the devil in order to become successful and famous."
They used to show the same videos in my school when I was a teenager. Funny thing was that all the "stars" were people nobody had ever heard of... and they had no talent, and no knowlege of their supposed area of the media.
That and some "stars" were recycled as other "stars" in the same video.
It's called PIOUS FRAUD.

Sometimes I wish I were a moron, they see so much more magic and fun in life. But, sadly, I finished high school and am thus not a fundy.

If I thought selling my soul to the devil to become rich and successful (I don't particularly want the fame part) might actually work, I'd seriously consider it.

Unfortunately, it's as much a fairy tale as the rest of religion.

I've seen those videos as well, it's what we call a METAPHOR. Same thing with the "channelling spirits". Not meant to be taken literally.
Also, pop stars are idiots and will say anything. Best to pay no attention to their pronouncements.
