Would you sell your soul to the devil to satisfy your desires?

I really don't get the people saying of course though. I mean, if you believe you don't have a soul and make this wish, then if you're right, it wont come true. This is because you don't have a soul and the devil doesn't exist therefore you're not going to get your desires satisfied by someone that doesn't exist. However if you make this promise and you're wrong, meaning you do have a soul and the devil does exist, you're going to spend an eternity in Hell... To me its a lose-lose situation. Anyone care to explain their "yes" responses?


Sure. Not believing that this is possible, this is my reasoning. If the devil comes to me (I'd have to apologize to all the theists I mocked) and asks me if I will give him my soul in exchange for my wish, this means that when I die, I go to hell, right? Even though asking for immortality is a solution (lol) I would not do that. If I can have my wish, then I don't really care if I go to hell. In fact, hell sounds a lot more fun than heaven (seriously boring).
Once again: "I do not believe in an afterlife, so I do not have to spend my life fearing hell, or fearing heaven even more. For whatever the tortures of hell, I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse." Isaac Asimov

Also, you do realize that no true theist will answer "yes" to this, so everyone who does is an atheist who would not take hell seriously. Just as a side note.


wow... tats deep man...

Hmm it depends. I mean if I was going to go to hell anyways I might as well enjoy my brief life span on this earth.
