What the devil?

I've been giving this some thought for a fair whack of time, and considered typing about it before now but some gittish terrorist has managed to make the subject too sensitive for me to think I can properly get away with the comments I'm about to make.

Now before anyone decides that I'm being disrespectful to anyone please remember the whole blog ethos “Think it. Blog it”.

In times of old the devil or evil spirits were blamed for any nastiness that occurred, this ranged from ewes being unable to lamb to disease. With the main source of comfort coming from some level of worship and a belief/hope that whatever a person praised would sort it all out for them.

However since “The War on Terrorism” started the mystic devil of old has been replaced by human representatives, and thusly the way of solving these problems has also shifted to the hands of humans.

The question which rotates in my mind is does the form of the perceived evil determine the form of the entity capable of solving the problem. Is this a sign of society changing for a faith stronghold to a materialistic and independent one?

    Firstly I would like to make a serious point…
    This is even more reason why I immensely dislike religion, it seemed like in the past when people did not understand what was out 'there' and it was perceived as bad…they made it out to be a work of some sort of devil, this leads me to believe (and i know it is a large generalisation) that religion was used to comfort those who are scared by whats out there and by things they dont understand…its something mystical and good or bad. Now with people carrying out these acts of terrorism apparently in the name of a particular religion, other people almost seem to be less trusting of religion as they see how it can be easily be perverted…well thats what i think anyway.

    All that seriousness hurt….

    Hooray for boobies…thats better
