Can I get your opinion on this?
Every once in a while I feel the need to throw a cog in to the wheel. So here is my cog for the month.
Did you know that Lucifer is the Greek god of light and wisdom? I bet you didn't. Not too many do.
It is an interesting thing to think for a moment about the past, that Christianity rose up from the Romans (who didn't really like the Greeks) and that the Roman god and goddess for the sun and the moon were Apollo(Sun) and Artemis(Moon). The Greek counter part to them (we all know the Greeks and Romans had similar gods and goddesses) were Lucifer(Sun) and his sister Diana(Moon). When the Romans concurred the Greeks, the Greeks were forced to adopt the Roman pantheon. When the Roman empire changed from paganism to Christianity, who was better to turn into a demon than a revered god of your enemy?
It makes one wonder a bit as to why Christianity considers Lucifer the evil of all evils. What is their problem with light and wisdom?
Like my cogs?
