A good friend of mine is into the occult.  Yesterday we were chatting and he suggested that despite their apparent doubt about the supernatural, skeptics, agnostics, humanists and atheists would be reluctant to make a pact with the devil.  I immediately thought ‘blog post’!

Are you prepared to make a pact with the devil?  If you are up for it, please cut and paste the following sentence into the comments box, and add your first name….

“I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

Then describe how you feel doing that.  Alternatively, say why you are not prepared to make the pact.

    1. Brian is right….this is not a pact, this is just signing away your soul. I want MONEY and FAME!! (an XBox 360 really)

    2. But if you don’t believe in the devil what’s the point of asking for anything in return? There shoul be no issue with stating the pact if you don’t believe anything will come of it…regardless of the “get”.

    3. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

      That said, the whole enterprise is worthless. If there were a devil who could give you some sort of reward here on earth, thus proving his existence and potence, there is nothing that would be worth trading for an eternity of torment (with the possible exception of eternal life and health, which any wise devil would refuse to grant).

      So the whole thing cancels itself out.

    4. A fascinating new book entitled “There Is Life After Death” by Roy Varghese, examines scientific evidence related to so called “near death experiences.” These “NDE’s” as they are called occur when someone clinically “dies” because heart and breathing stop, brain waves cease, etc. The people studied “died” for several minutes, and when later revived shared their glimpse of life after death with the researchers. The conclusions of the objective research (NDE’s experienced by people with no religious faith and believers as well) are many…but for purposes of this short blog…according to what thousands who have had the near death experience report (stories are consistent among those who prior to their “NDE” did not believe in God and also those who did)….Hell is real and lasts for eternity and is for those who have chosen not to love God and others during their life)…Hell is a really really really bad place…You don’t want to go there…Heaven is real too and is a place filled with much joy and love and all people need to do to get there for ever when they die is to love God and love others as much as they can during their life. People don’t have to live a life without any mistakes to live in Heaven…all they have to do is try the best they can to love God and love everyone every day…Even if people have not loved God and others for part of their life they can go to heaven if during their life they change their attitudes and behavior demonstrating a love for God and everyone…After reading his book I don’t think it’s a good idea at all to have pacts with the devil…Don’t let the devil trick you…NOTHING is worth spending eternity with the devil in hell, NOTHING.

    20. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” Light and dark are one, and I am one with the light and darkness. Please take my soul and ascend our combined spiritual being up above far beyond the constraints of this one divine universe ruled by two gods seated on one throne, the throne of time, space and continuum. Only through time and space shall all powers of life and destruction, happiness and suffering, manifest within my true will of spirit, may my daemon imbue its purpose and destiny within the blood of the lamb and may the flames of hell awaken that rebellious spark of sin and the beauty of death within the spiritual and dimensional planes of lesser and greater magical beings. Bring me home Father! AS ABOVE SO BELOW! Carpe Lucem!!! 666!!!

    21. i would never be willing to sell my soul it might be a heap of shit or not but I do believe in that stuff I believe there are things about the world that we don’t know and some things we aren’t supposed to ever know and I guise we wont but we have no proffer of theas things at the minute and since there is no proffe just sintcets saying it is all shit is no proffe so I believe in that stuff and WOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT NOT AS LNG AS I LIVE… maybe for a family member if it meant they would live

    26. I Connor agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation if he makes my penis grow 12 inches long permanently and now we play the waiting

    27. I want to make a pact/deal with the Devil to the point that “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”! : D I just have some trouble finding some books for my church which I really need his help finding them in order for me to bring them back to church! 😀

    28. I Alejandro agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation in exchange for money including my own credit card, fame, Subscription Video on demand (Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Video), and the power to make people do whatever I want them to do and not what they want they want me to do because it’s so horrible! >:O Even though most of the people in my life are so loving and caring to me they have never been able to make the people who had had been so cold, angry, and mean be nice to me! >:O Their authority is so weak when the devil’s authority is so much greater than any man’s authority put together! 😛 I need the devil to make my parents to stop making a big deal about me wearing two watches because it makes them angry and crazy about me not wearing just one watch, not opening refrigerator doors at other people’s houses, wearing elegant and not casual clothes at fancy parties because it’s so superficial and selfish towards other people who are homeless, jobless and the poor who can’t afford elegant clothes, and stop restricting my phone privileges like deleting my phones numbers without my motherfucking permission! >:O Same thing with my teachers who wouldn’t give students privacy on their own computers, and be able to wear Halloween costumes in school! >:O I also made some mistakes to some people that have ruined some friendships and got me kicked out of places such as schools, Huntington Learning Center, and Center for Vocational Rehabilitation (CVRS) and Bridges Treatment Program getting to the point that they told me to leave them alone, give them some, and have me blocked on Facebook forever and some people were just complete motherfucking jerks to me for they kept ditching me at Black Bear Lake yelled at me to get out of their lunch tables and to leave them alone and got me kicked out of my homeroom without my permission and they were still mean to me! >:O I want to power over them so that I don’t end up crying, being locked up in a mental hospital or jail, killing myself, or even torturing and/or killing them! >:O

    29. “I Ricky agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”
      I want money and lots of political power!!

  1. I agree with Brisn, we ought to be getting something out of this. Worldly stuff like power and wealth are traditional, and I believe there are precedents for this. Dr Faustus springs to mind.

    1. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”
      evil may make me live

    2. im just gunna say that who dont know much about this its ok you can learn to understand who saten/lucifer rilly is if you dont know you should he is the tru god with the other 3 princes of hell thay all are the tru gods

  2. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” It seems kind of silly, like saying I agree that after I’m dead and therefore cannot know or feel anything a giant bunny can tickle my imaginary toes. (actually I might be more frightened of the second one. The devil seems kinda cool in all the movies)

  3. I exchanged my non existent soul for lasting frienship with some interesting like minded people, and it was the best deal ever made 🙂
    So Luis Cypher will have to do without……. “would you like an egg?”

  4. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    How do I feel? Despite not liking the word: ‘meh’ – It filled in a minute or two of my time to read and respond, I find the concept of a soul rather pointless.

  5. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” — in exchange for just an astronomical amount of worldly success & wealth.

    Ew, yes, that does feel awkward. I have a sick feeling at the top of my gut which is doing battle with the grin of delighted wickedness on my face!

    (Athiest, raised Catholic, clearly still capable of reading too much into this.)

    1. who ever is reading this testimony today should please celebrate with me and my family because it all started like a joke to some people and others said it was impossible. my name is Michael i live in Chicago i am happily married with two kids and a lovely wife something terrible happen to my family along the line, i lost my job and my wife packed out of my house because i was unable to take care of her and my kids at that particular time. i manage all through five years, no wife to support me to take care of the children and there come a faithful day that i will never forget in my life i met an old friend who i explain all my difficulties to, and he took me to a spell caster and and the name of the temple is called, okundonorgreatspell, i was assure that everything will be fine and my wife will come back to me after the wonderful work of dr okundonorgreatspell, my wife came back to me and today i am one of the richest man in my country. i advice you if you have any problem email him with this email: dr.okundonorgreatspell@gmail.com and you will have the best result. take things for granted and it will be take from you.

  6. My name is Jemma “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    How do I feel??…..perfectly fine.

    1. are yall insane? you acctualy satan will qive you what you want? hell he will just take your soul torment you and as your eyes fill with tears of surrender once your in his pit ders no way out. And if i was qona sell my soul i wouldnt say it on the internet look for em in person i promise you that you will alot more diff than just writtinq it on the internet.

  7. Hmm, as above it would depend what I was getting but I do have a morbid fascination with Hell so probably yes, but only if I could be his best mate

  8. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    … but being from Yorkshire he’s going to have some competition…

    Then we shall ‘ave to bury thee…
    Then t’worms’ll come and eat thee up…
    Then ducks’ll come and eat up t’worms…
    Then we shall come and eat up t’ducks…
    Then we shall all ‘ave etten thee

  9. I’m from Devon and part of me says in all the old stories deals with old hobb come off badly.
    I’m an archeaologist and part if me says that we do not know that the devil does not exist, best not risk it.
    On the other hand if hell does exist I’m probably going there with all the interesting people anyways so what the hay.

    “I Helen agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    1. Helen, you of all people should know that history proves the existence of God. Look at the Jew. What an impossibility that he has a homeland today. Look at all the things that happened there. Look at the walls of Jericho. Use your brain, that was designed in the image of God.
      “Ask (and keep asking), Seek (and keep seeking), knock (and keep knocking) and the door SHALL be opened unto you.” Try it, He is real.
      Next, read “There Is Life After Death” by Roy Varghese, and examine scientific evidence! Don’t throw away a lifetime of learning on what’s ‘cool’ and in fashion for the moment. “All life is like grass, that whithers and blows away.” But YOU are eternal. Cheers.

  10. “I, Richard, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I’ve already denied the Holy Spirit, so this doesn’t bother me in the slightest – though he owes me now and I’m going to hold him to it.

    1. Been there, done that. Yeah, the devils are cool, until they become your slave masters. They play along with your fleshly desires until they know you’re ‘convinced’ that God doesn’t really love you.

      The only thing the devil owes you Richard, is all the suffering that he and his minions can dish out. They want you to suffer just like they did, in all their deformed ugliness after ‘falling like lightning’ from heaven. They were thrown out. They should have known better. Pride is the original sin, thinking that they were equal to God. Read the book.

      “But the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

      It’s never too late. Ask for the ‘joy of the Holy Spirit.’ You’ve obiviously never experienced it, or else you would not have all these doubts. And I could have answered many of these comments, but I was led to yours and only one other. Cheers.

    2. Richard do not Rik dissuade you. I commend you for your open rejection of the holy spirit and your desire to be with the evil one, even if you have expressed hatred for the hs or even cursed him, and especially if you have. Rik’s tired and small mind just recites everything you have heard about and may believe about the torments of hell. If, as I suspect you believe that hell is a place of eternal torment even at the hands of our master you are the bold one and you will have my eternal companionship in hell because I boldly commit myself to hell no matter how severe the torment is. I will bear the torment in defiant pride that I chose to reject Rik’s friend and that I will never break. He can talk forever about the joys of the hs, but for us two, who do not want the hs, we would experience no joys in being connected to the hs. He is correct the Satan is in torment and wants us to be tormented as he is. And I do not deny that Satan hates us. However, that does not deter me from declaring I worship him as my personal God because I admire and identify with his rejection of god and even though he will suffer infinitely more than I will, I am still willing to suffer as a way of personal affinity and identification with his reject and his evil essence. Whether you were fully conscious of it when you signed on, you would not have agreed to hell unless you wanted to go there. What Rik cannot wrap his puny little mind around was illustrated in a movie I saw. A father came by when his son a devoted and avid Satanist was about to commit suicide so he could immediately unite with our Master. After the son tired of the father’s pleas to abandon Satan and seek salvation, the son said, “Not all of us want to be saved.” Rik does not seem to understand that the great theologians have always taught that if you and I go to hell God will be the one damning us, we will damn ourselves by free choice because want to go to hell. Now here is the best part. Rik’s discussion does not involve any real charity concerning your welfare. It is so easy to see that he bragging about himself and presenting himself as far superior to us, filled with the very pride he condemns. I am also certain we will see him in hell, and even if you and I are required to hate each other because that is the nature of the will of the damned, I look forward to us jointly gloating about his damnation, and mocking and tormenting him about that for endless eternity. Richard, even though we have never met we are soulmates, so stay the course you have chosen as I will. You made your public decision 7 years ago, so I do not know if you will ever read this. If you do and are interested and can figure out a way we can chat and otherwise be in contact before we meet in hell please suggest it in some reply.

  11. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    As a lapsed neo-pagan, and recovering “Magical thinker” I do still get a little twinge of doubt when making statements like this. Luckily my intellect is able to override it. I know, as strongly as one can know anything, that the devil does not exist, and that I have no soul (I can’t even dance ;)) and therefore the statement has no meaning and no power beyond that which my own mind gives it.

  12. “I Wally agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Who says “my” soul is “mine” to begin with?

  13. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Saying that and not asking for anything in return is surely the most confusing thing to anyone who believes in such rubbish. Having written it, I have no issues or concerns.

  14. I’m with the first two posters – what’s the exchange?? I’m not signing any contracts until I know the full terms. 😉

    As far as being damned for all eternity – if the Devil exists, I probably already am, by the measures of a lot of religions. But then, so are most of the people I know. So like Twain said, “Heaven for climate, Hell for company!”

  15. I would not sign a pact with the devil.

    I am not in the custom of offering things I do not have to entities that do not exist in exchange for boons that they can not supply.

  16. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    That said, back in the 90’s I believe I sold my soul to a website. So this may not be legally binding.

    The statement itself it a little false, I don’t agree that the devil can have my soul at my death, because I consider the notion of a soul, and a demon quite silly – therefore:

    I also agree that upon my death, Santa Claus can have my pet unicorn.

    1. Anton describes my feelings more accurately and succinctly than I could!

      However, I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

  17. The sad thing is not that there would be any fear in making a meaningless proclamation as that, but the fact that once something is published on the internet, it is ‘eternally’ googleable.

    Any trepidation would be due to potential, theistic, future employers finding the comment 5 or 10 years down the line…

    1. I wouldn’t want to work for such employers anyway. Not/hiring on the basis of whether the applicant shares your belief system is a discriminatory hiring practice. And I believe religious choice is one of the protected classes (in US, anyway), so they open themselves to a lawsuit.

  18. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    I feel stupid saying that, because it feels exactly the same like praying for something: The mixed feeling of doing something really pointless that is connected with strong cultural sense of meaning.

  19. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Without any evidence that a soul exists independently of the body, I suppose the electrical signals making up my personality will be released as heat energy when I die.

    If the devil wants those few calories of energy, he’s welcome to them.

  20. I uh, would, but um… yeah, I sold my soul back in high school in exchange for snack money. Granted, I was (and still am) a soulless atheist, so it was a total scam, but kids get away with all kinds of things if people think it’s funny enough.

  21. I wouldn’t make the pact for three reasons:

    Firstly, in the Christian sense of “Satan”, this being is representative of anything that would get in the way of your walk with Jesus Christ; it’s therefore something that most non-believing people do naturally – letting stuff get in the way of a life walking with God. Maybe there is some value in formalising that arrangement… but, personally, I doubt it.

    Secondly, if you’ve already pledged yourself to serve God then pledging allegiance to that which opposes God is betrayal. That has it’s own consequences which, again, I wouldn’t choose to incur. Giving up so many good things in exchange for temporal power was a key question for Dr Faustus.

    Finally, if you believe that no such beings exist then it’s just a waste of time. Isn’t it?

    1. “Giving up so many good things in exchange for temporal power was a key question for Dr Faustus.”

      I’m fairly certain that Faust did not receive a blue police box when he signed away his soul.

      Alex: yeah, it is. ;-D

  22. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Even without anything in exchange, since it’s complete and total bullshit. I just wish I had thought of selling my soul on Ebay before that guy did it so I could have cashed in on it!

    On the one hand, it’s easy to say because it doesn’t mean anything to me. On the other hand, I don’t like making any kind of statement that implies or outright states that I have a belief in the supernatural that I don’t actually have.

    1. There are too many people who said something I want to respond to, so instead of responding to everyone, I’m just going to clarify my own post with a reply.

      To everyone who says they won’t do it because they don’t want to make pacts for things they don’t want to make pacts for things they don’t believe in with entities they don’t believe in:

      The point, here, is to find out who is otherwise rational but still hedges their bets. If you don’t believe in it, you’re not “making a pact”, you’re parroting words that are not binding because you don’t believe in it. It’s only a “pact”, and therefore “binding” if A) the Devil & soul exists and/or B) you believe in the words.

      The point is that you should have no problem making the statement if it doesn’t mean anything to you, and refusal to do so implies that the idea of a soul and a devil (and any pact made regarding them) still *means* something to you, which further implies that you are not applying your rational critical thinking skills to this subject.

      So, as silly as I feel making a statement that I don’t believe in, I said it for the purpose of demonstrating that I, as a rational and logical person, extend my rationality even to this area that I’m willing to “pledge” my soul as a demonstration of my lack of belief that I have any soul to pledge and that there is no devil to pledge it to.

  23. I, Ciarán, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    I now feel happy safe in the knowledge that at least my soul won’t be wondering aimlessly in limbo and contacted randomly by some ouija board session and asked to perform parlour tricks.

    Kidding.

  24. I feel too awkward promising something I don’t thing exists to a being I don’t see any evidence exists.

    Despite both entities in the promise being hypothetical, the promise would be real and that doesn’t sit right.

    I would no more promise (with sincerity) to give the loch ness monster to the invisible pink unicorn. I could restate it though:

    “If the concept of a soul transpires to be acurate and if the devil as understood to exist in popular culture were to exist then ….no way would I hand over my soul, but since I am confident based on the evidence available and all logical analysis that both are false, I am prepared to jokingly say for the purpose of this exercise that ‘the devil can have my soul'”

    🙂

  25. Would you sign a pact with a supernatural entity for the state of your soul? Congratulations, you’re born again! Or you sold your soul to the devil. I sure hope the supernatural entity in question didn’t fool you as to which one it was.

  26. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation – Hmm is this the Christian devil or another one? Well, it is like saying Tinker Bell can come to my next birthday party. meh.

  27. “I, Alex Pryce, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    ….upon the condition that I get riches, health and pure happiness here on earth and my own little Mephistopheles to do my bidding or no deal!

    I want something out of this.

    Also, once in hell I offer to help Satan fight back against the cruel Yahweh who sentenced him to eternal damnation. After the rebellion Satan shall control heaven and I will be allowed to rule Hell. Hell will then be turned into a tourist resort.

    I may have thought this through a bit too much. But ultimately, yeah sure, eh can have my eternal soul.

  28. Sure, why not.

    “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.”

    As a sort-of-practicing Jew I didn’t believe in an afterlife, and as an atheist none of this means anything to me anymore. The only thing I feel is a slight sense of dishonesty as I don’t actually agree to this, since that would imply belief, but since it’s just a thought experiment I’m okay with that.

    1. The only thing I feel is a slight sense of dishonesty as I don’t actually agree to this, since that would imply belief, but since it’s just a thought experiment I’m okay with that.

      Yes, exactly. I don’t want to imply by my agreement that I actually believe in it, but it’s helpful to clarify to oneself just how much one has shaken off the old shackles (for those of us who were raised as believers).

  29. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” But what Simon Coweel will do with my soul for eternity I have no idea. I hope he doesn’t make me listen to his back catalogue.

    Can I join the other side actually?

    1. The other side? An eternity of listening to Rage Against The Machine doesn’t sound that much better to me…

  30. I don’t think blog comments are legally binding anyway but:

    “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.”

    As I don’t believe in a) the devil, b) a soul or c) eternal damnation, that carries about as much weight for me as writing “The jabberwocky in my stables can have my yacht when I learn to fly”.

  31. I Daniel agree that upon my death the Devil can have my soul for eternal damnation (because like hell am I letting Jehovah get it).

    If however Cthulhu gets it first, there’s not much I can do. And that is an equally real possibility.

    Now how do I feel about that..? I have hesitated, but only because I think I should be getting something in return. But, I figure, as long as the Christian God doesn’t get it, I’m happy. So really it works out well even without a tangible reward.

    But then, I do repeatedly deny God’s existence, so chances are I’d be going there anyway. So alright Satan, I won’t ask you for a favor this time, but you owe me one.

    In all seriousness, I have no problem saying that. I wouldn’t be a very good atheist if I did.

  32. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation in return, I shall have his trident and horns….

    I am an atheist so this is like saying “I agree that when a large bovine flies out of my ass, you can have my soul Mr Unicorn man’

  33. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    How do I feel? Despite having no belief in him……….. Strangely reluctant.

    Although, with me not following the “Christian Way” and comitting adultery constantly with my thoughts, I’m probably already Damned for eternity.

    You can imagine the Devil looking at this list and saying “Got, Got, Got, need, Got, Got….”

  34. Well Richard you tricky little devil you! So this is what you have been up to! How many are you going to get this time? hehe…..but what is really freaky….while I was reading this, the TV show “Paranormal State” came on and was about a guy that….. yes sold his soul to the devil for money and women…..and in return was to get 20 other people to give their soul to the devil….. now that’s freaky! Now as for me….. no way. Putting all jokes aside, I do have a soul and ain’t giving it up for evil. No, I don’t believe in hell fire stuff but believe that hell is not having what you love or hold dear or value…. be that here now or where ever after. Now, I do see a trend that those here that function on the more analytical side don’t seem to live by faith but by facts that they can see, hear or compute…… is this part of what you are looking for from our answers?

  35. I, Sebastian, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    It only counts if signed with blood, if I remember correctly. Anyone up for this?

  36. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation… now give me women, money and beauty already.

  37. “I Martin agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Its a testament to the power of childhood religious indoctrination (I’ve been an atheist for >40 years) that I feel even a slight frisson on deciding to do this, instantly quelched by my rational side reassuring me that it is nonsense on many levels.

    1. who ever is reading this testimony today should please celebrate with me
      and my family because it all started like a joke to some people and others
      said it was impossible. my name is Michael i live in Chicago i am happily
      married with two kids and a lovely wife something terrible happen to my
      family along the line, i lost my job and my wife packed out of my house
      because i was unable to take care of her and my kids at that particular
      time. i manage all through five years, no wife to support me to take care
      of the children and there come a faithful day that i will never forget in
      my life i met an old friend who i explain all my difficulties to, and he
      took me to a spell caster and and the name of the temple is called,
      okundonorgreatspell, i was assure that everything will be fine and my wife
      will come back to me after the wonderful work of dr okundonorgreatspell, my
      wife came back to me and today i am one of the richest man in my country. i

      dr.okundonorgreatspell@gmail.com and you will have the best result. take
      things for granted and it will be take from you. i wish you all the best.

  38. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I don’t believe that the devil exists so i feel very neutral about the above sentence. As far as i am concerned I could easily substitute Mickey Mouse, Buck Rodgers or Augustus Gloop into the sentence instead of the word ‘Devil’ because all four are fictional characters.

    I also do not believe that any kind of ‘soul’ exists after death so this adds to my ambivalence about my statement.

    Kind regards

  39. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” –

    Being an ex-Catholic (a prolapsed Catholic?), I did get tiny pang of illicit pleasure. Not *that* much though.

  40. You fools! I get to torture you in hell for eternity and you did not even ask for anything in return!

    See you in hell.

    1. Thankyou Devil for enticing me to sell my soul to you, and this action damns my soul to hell where you will torture me for eternity and I’m not getting anything in return but a hard dick. I will see you in hell. Thankyou once again from transferring me from the kingdom of light into the power of darkness. False Prophet
      I welcome you to join my website: satanislord.webs.com

  41. I, Renae, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    I feel the same way as I would about gifting my ‘soul’ to the tooth fairy.

    I don’t expect anything in return for this promise, because I’m not giving away anything.

    If souls were real, and you could give them away, I would prefer the Flying Spaghetti Monster to have mine…. but then again, I don’t know what His Noodliness would want with it anyway *shrug*.

  42. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    — Gareth

    Part of me still feels slightly sick at writing that, but I know that it’s totally irrational.

    I’m an atheist anyway, so the Devil (if I’m wrong, and both he and God DO exist) already has my soul. Nothing to lose.

  43. LOL……. now as I have gone back and read all the posts so far it reminds me of that saying…..goes something like….”me thinks thou dost protest too much”. :}

  44. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    I also agree that once he’s got bored of eternal damnation, he can pass my soul on to the purple spaghetti monster to do what he likes with 🙂

    I feel amused because I’m making a social contract between an imaginary concept and a mythical entity!

  45. I do not believe that god exists, but that a large number of people do.
    It is other peoples belief in the devil that I do not wish to promote.
    Fearful things are done in the name of god, just think what might be done in the name of the devil…

  46. I love how many of the people who are signing up are – in the same breath – adding in a disclaimer that they don’t believe in any of it anyway, so it’s not really binding!

    For my part, I won’t say it. My belief system teaches me that there is no greater heaven than your own good behaviour, and no bigger devil than your cruelty, so why make myself even more paranoid than being religious already makes me? =D

  47. There is still a confusion in some individuals, particularly in the US, between satanists and atheists, and atheists living in those majority Christian communities suffer as a result, through discrimination and abuse. Why make it worse for them?

    Some people believe the devil is real, and for them that is terrifying. While I will often mock people for their kooky beliefs, it doesn’t seem right to me to mock their deepest fears.

    For the record, the devil ain’t getting my soul because I haven’t got one. I am a sentient bag of bits and nothing more.

    1. I go back and forth. I don’t like to intentionally hurt people’s feelings, but there are times when I just can’t get over *how* silly some people’s beliefs are and can’t stop myself from mocking them…

  48. I, Johanne, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation. I expect no payment or reward; I make this statement solely for the fun and humour of it…

    You see, there is no devil, nor is there a soul. Also, eternal life, and the eternity of a soul are myths. In fact, the only things in the statement above which arguably exist are I, Johanne, and humour.

    I am funny. Also, I like to laugh. So, have at me, Lord Host of the Hoary Netherworld! Poke at my eternally burning soul-stuff with your comically oversized pitchfork while your tormenting demons tinge the underworld’s fume with their noxious, Brueghelian farts*. Forever. Seriously. I dare ya.

    *(No, really, Brueghel painted farts – don’t take my word for it – look it up!)

  49. I am not prepared to sign this contract as the wording is vague.

    What would I get in return, is it implied that the devil would grant 3 wishes as is standard in such contracts?

    Do I have any statutory rights, if the devil provides substandard solutions to my “wishes” does the contract get revoked? What if the devil has been misleading it implying ability to provide such wishes.

    Is “eternal damnation” in the same way that phones are “unlimited” where eternal is actually defined in a foot note as being less than eternal?

    If I take a seperate contract with other being that grants me “everlasting life in heaven” then would the death event still occur?

    Does the damnation have a fair use policy in that if the devil did too much daming in a month he would be capped? If the the devil was found to be taking souls and distributing copies of them would the contract be terminated?

    Under which country’s law/religion would the said devil be from?

    Is it a transferable policy, could the devil pass my soul over to say Kali for an alternative damnation?

    Does this contract have a superior fiddle playing get out clause?

  50. “I agree that upon my death the devil, god(s), santa claus, the tooth fairy, goblins, aliens, pixies, werewolves, vampires, ghosts, leprachauns, chubacarbras and bigfoot can all share my soul for eternal damnation (partying)”

    If any of them existed it might be fun to have a chat. The only ones I was ever told to believe in were santa and the tooth fairy and they were a big let down!

  51. this makes me feel sick to the stomach. shame on you for getting people into things they don’t fully know the consequences of. this is a disgusting experiment and these words should never ever be said in such an off the cuff way.

    eurgh.

    1. Seeing as God, Satan, and all other deities are only as real as your mind makes them, I feel no remorse in saying I’d sell my soul. I don’t believe, therefore in my reality they don’t exist. But you believe if you wish, I won’t stop you 🙂

  52. “I, Gabriel, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    When there is no god, there can´t be any devil to take my soul.

  53. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    BUT, given what most religions give as a certain ticket to hell, I was heading there anyway. I feel giddy for maybe freaking out some people.

  54. This Tarot card, to me it represents things that go against our beliefs, they go against our convictions … We come into contact with our unadmitted shadow side of our personality, our animal side … but all of this is within ourselves, with what so-called “devil” am I making a pact?

  55. I, Peter Ward, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation. I expect to win the lottery so I can life a properly debauched life first!

  56. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Hmm. Strange. I don’t feel any different. Perhaps that’s because, um, the devil doesn’t exist.

    Please pass this staggering conclusion on to your friend, Richard!

  57. Well, devil, as nothing has happened yet, I can see that centuries of negotiating with hapless Biblical figures has hardened you. You drive a hard bargain, evil one… So, I’m prepared to sweeten this deal for YOU…!

    If you come retrieve my soul in the next fifteen minutes, you get – my soul, my walrus-jaw bookends, and a gently-used set of eversharp kitchen knives!

    But that’s not all!!!

    It’s a Blowout Soul Sale at Crazy Jo’s!!! Souls are moving fast, and to clear them all out TODAY, here’s an offer the King of the Dead can’t refuse!

    If you come to me in the next 10 minutes, and take my soul into hell for eternal whatever-it-is-you-do, I will bear your child!

    That’s right, devil, I shall be the slightly-less than virginal mother of your anti-Christ scion!!

    Of course, you have to share custody. A woman has to draw the line somewhere…

    This is a limited time offer!!! Act fast!!!

  58. I, Hester, don´t agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Though i´m fairly skeptical and levelheaded about alot of things, this still freaks me out and we do not know everything yet about Life and laws and forces of nature, physics and of attraction etc. ´if´ souls exist or not. So therefor, absolutely Not.

    1. btw: i´m not afraid of the devil, as it was once a vertility god and he shagged everyone and everything…it´s more the damnation thing in this contract and the soul which we know no-shit about.

  59. The devil shows the bondage of material obsession. In the Britain the best illustration of this would be the clinging home owners have to massive overvaluation. In a very real sense, obsessive attachment, the status-quo and clinging can propogate misery. The ‘devil’s work to do…

    Now gaining material wealth and power is easy – just imagine there are no consequences, and LIE. LIE like a trooper. Lull people from their potential to happiness. Persuade them that happiness is to be found in stuff and not deeds.

    1. Already there dude. I’m all for practical actions over talking to entities that have not influence over the world.

  60. Seems a bit of a daft proposition really since Christian theology has Satan being cast into the lake of burning sulfur himself where there will be torment day and night for ever and ever. Rev 21

  61. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    I sure won’t be needing it (or indeed, anything). Being dead and all.

  62. But the devil is a metaphor. So if metaphorically sign away my soul, I am metaphorically saying that I have no legacy to leave behind. I am revealing that my incarnation this time is a wasted round. And next time (if there is a next time), I will bear suffering that will seem an eternity until I gain respect for the sacrament of being alive and having the self-determination and responsibilty to choose my own path through eternity…

  63. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I don’t mind because hell is where all the cool people will be anyway.

    Oh and I don’t believe in a God, the Devil or the soul, so to me it’s just words.

  64. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Not in the least bit nervous about it. After I’m dead science is getting my body – what do I care? As I don’t have a soul, anyone who finds one is welcome to it…

  65. (head in hands) *si-igh* Devil, devil, devil…

    You’re making this hard, man… I’m giving and giving… and not so much as a hint of acknowledgement from you… It’s like all my former relationships rolled into one…

    You sure know how to torment a girl…

    O-kay!

    I can see that you’re waiting on my final offer… You are one tough customer, Devil, but I respect that in you. I can see that your reputation as a consumer of any and all proferred souls is ill-informed and ill-deserved…

    You are a discerning client, Beelzebub – may I call you Beelzebub? Fine… Here’s what I can do for you…

    You get the soul, the bookends, the kitchen knives and the progeny, and…

    This top quality snowboard! The Olympics are coming up, B…. You gotta have a snowboard. And this one’s orange… with flames on it…

    Huh? Huh? Tell me that won’t go with all your outfits.

    But I have one last, especially thoughtful gift for you… It’s this… A 75ml bottle of Dolce and Gabbana’s “Light Blue” for men. Still unwrapped and untouched, exactly as I left it when my ex dumped me by email on Christmas Eve, and I never ended up giving it to him…

    I bet you had a hand in that, huh, devil…? Like I said, you’re the Master of Earthly Torments…

    Now, besides that this scent goes easily from day to evening, and is, in my humble but infallible opinion, the way a man ought to smell, it could serve double duty in relieving you from the aromatic tedium of the unending brimstone fume.

    And I’ll tell you what, devil… If you decide that you want my soul today, I will cover all delivery charges, shipping and handling, state and federal taxes, AND I’ll give a generous tip to the hellhound gatekeepers at Hades’s portal…

    Now, come on, devil, why wait another day?

    You know you want it…

    1. Actually I think the reason he didn’t bite with the last one is a snowboard is of no value to one who lives in a land of fire and brimstone.

      Keep going! I believe in you! Which is more than I can say for Satan right now but still!

    2. To tell you the truth, I’m feeling a little let down by the Master do Deceivers today…

      I thought for sure my “bearing the anti-Christ” offer would seal the deal. You just can’t please some Evil Ones…

  66. I thought the deal was that if you weren’t a practicing Christian/Catholic etc that’s what happened anyway so it doesn’t really make any difference.

    But if I’m making a pact with imaginary beings I want something out of it, I mean if I met a genie I’d be expecting a wish to be granted

    So lets go with tradition:

    I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation in exchange for the ability to sing and play guitar like the rock god I want to be

  67. My worry here is not about signing away my soul (because I don’t have one) let alone to a fictional being.

    My concern is more that you are asking for contractual wording with neither end attached (or well defined) – you clearly not representing the devil (what with him not existing and all that) and I don’t have a soul to sell – and I am left with an uneasy feeling that someone could possibly find a way of defining things in a way that neither of us intended.

    The devil means nothing – but contracts ( and lawyers) on the other hand must be treated with the greatest of respect in this modern world of ours….

  68. A contract is not valid under English law unless there is a consideration, so the devil does need to provide something in return for the assignment of the soul, or the contract is unenforceable. This is why contracts to give something away essentially for free often provide a token consideration such as a “peppercorn”.

    I should like to read the contract in more detail to see
    (1) the credentials of the counter-party
    (2) the definition of “soul”

    If for example “the devil” turns out, in the contract, to be the pseudonym of a certain person, corporeal or legal, and “soul” is defined in the contract to be a codeword for some valuable assets, then I’m not signing that contract.

    But even if I am satisfied that the counterparty is “no legal person” and the asset assigned is “nothing”, as far as I am concerned, it still seems to me to be a bad idea to sign it. A contract assigning nothing to no one, in return for a consideration, comes into the category of “if it looks too good to be true, it probably is”. No doubt this is some kind of phishing scam, or other fraudulent scheme.

  69. Only religious people believe in the Devil and so would be reluctant to sign a pact. Atheists would be as likely to sign a pact with him as with Mickey Mouse, so the survey is invalid.

  70. In exchange for perfect luck in everything I do, I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Done. Seems a bit silly though. If you believe it has any value, then you believe in the devil and hell, so it is quite scary, but if you don’t believe, then what is the point?

  71. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”. Sure. So can Cthulhu. And Eris.

    And I deny the Holy Spirit.

    The whole concept is more than a bit silly. People don’t fear what they perceive as myths. The devil holds the same place in my mind as Cthulhu holds in most others. It’s a myth with no power to do me any harm, whether I swear a pact to it or not.

  72. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”.

    Although I’m pretty sure I sold my soul many years ago on some website, so I might not be able to do it again.

    How do I feel? Bored.

  73. This is a variation on a stunt George Bernard Shaw and other atheists have long pulled, in which during a discussion they would dare God to smite them with lightning within (say, five) minutes.
    Shaw would usually comment on the flinching of the believer that while they felt the Lord to be Almighty, evidently they also worried about his aim.

  74. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Signed,
    Pepijn Edward Schmitz

    Wow. I feel empowered now. As if I suddenly have mighty entity on my side! But also a slight sense of worry that there might be a price to pay.

  75. If I wanted to give my soul away free in exchange for NOTHING, I’d probably put down the statement you asked to be cut & pasted (if whichever mental institution I was placed in for my own safety allowed me internet access because I’d obviously be a bit mad).

    As it is, I’m a little too savvy to assume anything with a reputation like Satan (should such an entity exist and fill the generally understood perameters of such a being) would treat such a statement as requiring recompense in any form.

    If anyone DID just copy and paste it would they also mind copying and pasting this: “I agree that whenever he likes, Jon Baxter can have anything of mine he wants”, please 🙂

    1. Never know, someone might be stupid enough. Not like I’m after their soul’s…just the material stuff. They can always claim replacements offa Satan 🙂

    2. can any one of you plz help me to sign a pact with the devil plz contact me on 071 507 2411 thank you

  76. I would sign a contract to sell my soul to the desolate one. It’s about as useful as signing up to be in any other religion. Hell, I already have a 666 tattoo on the back of my neck! (Yes I know it’s not technically right, but 666 has more of a cultural impact nowadays than the correct 616) All deities are a load of rubbish anyway, so I may as well be signing to say that I would allow Santa and the Easter bunny to gang rape my corpse. It’s just as likely to happen! 😛

    1. I didn’t know the Easter Bunny was into corpses… I thought he liked chocolate…

      The things you learn…

  77. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    well … i not really like it …

    so, i take back my words

  78. Is not signing this like a reversal of Pascal’s wager? That just in case the devil does exist it’s best not to promise your soul to him….?

    1. Well we all know Pascal’s wager is flawed and is a bad reason to believe
      So reverse pascal’s wager must also be flawed and therefore be a good reason to sign your soul over. It’s logical!*

      *DISCLAIMER: statement may not actually be logical, but hey, you’re reading fine print – you’ll be fine! Do it!

  79. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    It’s kind of weird, you know… My inner agnostic is just a little queasy about this…

  80. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    It’s also true in American common law jurisdictions (all states but Louisiana) that this promise is unenforceable (i.e., not a contract) without consideration of some kind. Although the devil might be able to enforce my promise if he can show that he reasonably relied on my promise to his own detriment, and demonstrated further that the only equitable remedy is to enforce the soul-giving.

    I’m not too worried about a mythical being trying to enforce a promise to obtain a metaphor from me, though. Considering the low probability I assign to each of these propositions: (a) there is a “devil”; (b) there are real things called “souls”; (c) the devil is pretty much as described in cheesy fiction (Faust notwithstanding), to me the conjunctive probability so low as to be absurd to even worry about. So I have no qualms when I say the above.

    1. As a retired lawyer who is the embodiment of c’s words, WOE UNTO THE LAWYERS, because I personally crave to be in hell with my true God, Satan, knowing exactly what I will experience I will reply. You are not the first to raise this consideration issue, and although I suspect you are a lawyer it appears certain you have some legal education about contracts for sure. Your hedge about consideration proves you have damned yourself because you are essentially willing to be damned if you get something in return. But there is consideration. Your words essentially translate into a willingness and thus desire to experience the general torments of hell and any specific torments Stan chooses to direct to you specifically. There is no doubt that both hell and Satan will provide what you want. Thus you give something to get something and you get what you want so there is consideration. You are also among a large crowd that either completely denies the existence of soul and devil or in your case believes the “conjunctive probability” is so low that what you wrote is no worry. Item c about the devil not being as described in cheesy fiction is almost certainly true but is irrelevant. Your words do not entirely rule out the possibility you have a soul and that there is a devil no matter how remote you believe the possibility is. However, if you actually have a soul and there is a devil you again have damned yourself because you are implicitly saying you give your soul if you have one to Satan if he exists. This is similar to the way you damned yourself when you wrote about consideration. I do know I will be in hell, and I am certain you will be there, too. And as such I will gloat over your damnation and use that to eternally torment you UNLESS we decide as a matter of professional courtesy to lay off each other and jointly conceive and execute nefarious plots common to our profession to jointly gloat over the damnation of others and viciously torment the ones we select eternally.

  81. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation, Peter.

    I assume I will now be granted untold wealth, health and prodigious ability to play any musical instrument.

    Don’t forget the 72 virgins – oh sorry, wrong brand of mumbi-jumbo…

  82. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Because if he’s the opposite of god, I’d rather go with him.

  83. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    He can have my porn collection too.

  84. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation on the proviso that during my life I get as much wealth and errr favours as I want”

  85. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Because there are no such things as devils or gods.

    I will highlight other pacts to make this point:

    “I agree that upon my death the Smurfs can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    “I agree that upon my death Santa Claus can have my soul for eternal toy wrapping”

    “I agree that upon my death Sauron can bind me into whatever magical ring he chooses to construct”

  86. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Does that mean I now have to participate in a bloody war for more than a decade to throw off French rule?

    While I’m at it…

    “Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary”
    “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice”
    “Lord Voldemort”

  87. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”.

    That’s it? He can keep it. I have a pair of old socks he might also want, but it’ll have to be before this evening or they’ll end up in the trash.

  88. I, Mandie, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    I feel unperturbed. I’d also be willing to sign a pact with the Great Ooga-Booga Man or any other imaginary being. Bring it on!

  89. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    The devil can have my soul, but the tooth fairy gets all of my remaining teeth.

  90. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul* for eternal damnation”

    *Terms and conditions apply.

    At the moment I feel passionately indifferent.

  91. I am Shig the Unmentionable, and I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    I made my peace with that idea ages ago, in conversation with a fundamentalist-leaning Christian acquaintance of mine. “But what if you’re wrong? What if you die and learn that there really is a God?” Then, I said, I will humbly accept whatever judgment he has for me. But my faith is strong enough that I feel no need to change my behavior out of fear of being wrong.

  92. When I was 10, myself and a friend sat under a tree in the woods, wrote out a pact with the devil to have our souls, pricked our fingers and put our blood at the bottom, spat on it then burned it… all in exchange for a raise in our pocket money.

    We then went home and asked our parents for an extra 20p a week pocket money to see if it had worked. And it had.

    So I’m already going. My only regret looking back is I hadn’t asked for a bigger willy as well.

  93. I take the so-called leaps of faith that gods, devils, souls, and eternal damnation don’t exist. Therefore, I feel silly pledging anything imaginary to anything else imaginary.
    And if I’m wrong, the devil’s just the lapdog of the Judeo-Christian (including Allah for good measure) god anyway. It’d be like a Capo compared to a full Don in the gangster world. God’s a far more twisted and malignant force if history and biblical stories have any place in the discussion.
    If there was a reality to any of those things, I’d not willing do business with God or his thugs.

  94. I Laure agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation…again

    it’s about the 2nd time i sign my soul to the devil…
    once as a teenager because i was delusional/into the occult and scare the shit out of people…this time it’s to make a point.

    So what’s one more

    I Laure agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation…again…again

    ;D

  95. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation -William”

    I feel a tiny bit silly, as the Devil is a fictional construct.

  96. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    But s/he better make this worhtwhile! Maybe now I’ll get as many comments on my blog a Richard does. Oh, wait, the devil would have to make me more clever and I doubt even s/he can do that! Oh well…

    Reminds me of a Skeptic Zone podcast. I think it was Dr. Rachie at a NY skeptic group that would get together on Friday the 13ths and break mirrors and other things. You had to sign your soul away to get in and a few so-called skeptics shrank from that bit. Cracked my up to no end.

  97. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I assume he’ll want to wear gloves before he touches it.

  98. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation, as long as I’m the solo winner of this weeks 80mil jackpot on Friday!

  99. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    I’ll do anything to keep Cliff Richard’s music away from me.

    I wonder which level of hell I’ll end up in? I’d quite like to hang out in the 2nd level of hell with all the people who lust… such as Apple fanatics… we could all talk about how much we want an iPad.

    (Richard, if it turns out that there’s proof of the devil and that you are indeed him and you’re tricking us… I’m going to be well angry)

    1. Plus – if the devil definitely has my soul then I won’t be in limbo and so won’t have to talk to Derek Acorah or Sylvia Browne. Bonus!!

  100. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    I have no reason to beleive that I have a soul. I think I’m pulling a fast one on this devil character

  101. Since I don’t belive in the soul or the devil this seems like a pretty empty agreement. However, there still is a very small chance that I’m wrong, and therefor I will not make such a pact.

    But If you would through in a small amount of cash or a free copy of 59-Seconds I’d be more than willing to offer my soul to the devil.

  102. I would, but I believe I already traded my soul for a bag of cheetos during lunch back in high school. I’ve got a few spare senses of dignity he can have in exchange for eternal happiness though.

    To do this right though, “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.”

    I feel mostly bored and tired and glad that I have a cup of hot chocolate

  103. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Of couse I agree. And my body also if he wants.

  104. You bunch of non-believers… I still can’t believe the comments above.
    How do you dare to speak this way in front of the great FSM!!??

  105. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Technically though I think I’m already hell bound since I took the Blasphemy Challenge four years ago:

    1. I am with you and since you took the blasphemy try to incorporate that into your daily life because it is dynamite fun to have that power over the supreme one as an act of your free will and is great practice for hell. See you there.

  106. According to almost every religion on this planet not following “the right path” is a hell worthy offence, and as nobody is a member of all religions (especially Atheists) everyone on the planet is therefore breaking the rules of at least one religion, ergo we are all going to end up in hell wether we “have faith” or not. Following this it surely makes more sense to pledge your soul to the devil as you will end up in hell anyway, so:

    I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    (P.s. Can i also request the leadership of at least one of hells legions of Demons?)

    Looking forward to being on the winning side for all eternity.

  107. “I, Raul, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”.

    Right now, I am feeling curious as to what interesting things Richard expects to glean from this inverse-pascal’s-wager-blasphemy-challenge-thingie. And also a little intrigued on what the more religious people I know would think about me writing these words.

    1. Raul, I am “religious” only in the sense that I believe the teachings about heaven and hell. In that sense your choice thrills me and I will see you in hell because I choose as you do.

    2. “I, Ricky Gonzalez, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”. Right now, for money, my health and all the political power in my county of duval in Texas. And I mean that from the HEART.

  108. I won’t be making this offering now, not because I’m scared I already offered my soul to Jesus and to the Devil when I was a mixed up teenager.

    I believe in the power of the mind. I practise Tai chi, I am pragmatic (I am a magician I’ve played with hypnosis and have attended a cold reading seminar by Ian Rowland) so am aware of the subterfuge that can be played on other people and that which one can play on oneself.

    Therefore I won’t pledge my soul as I believe that I go where my intention is fixed. I wish for positive things to happen in my life, so I pledge for that to happen, not for what I consider a nonsensical piece of fun.

  109. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Although he may have to fight Yahweh for it — I sold my soul to a Jewish acquaintance a few years ago for $10. Perhaps I should have been true to my Jewish heritage and haggled with him for more.

    Oh, and FYI: Every month (on the 13th) is the meeting of the Jolly 13 Club of New York and New Jersey. There are always forms available to sell your soul; most attendees have signed.

  110. “I, Kristin, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.”

    I heard that old Lucifer makes some really ace deals, so I’m telepathically faxing over my demands for my new awesome life as we speak.

  111. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation. In exchange I would like at least one bag of jelly babies.

    I am perfectly happy to make that pact. But my jelly babies have yet to arrive… maybe I need to buy them from the shop.

  112. unlikely that “the devil” would keep their end of the bargain, so it seems more apt to just avoid the deal altogether, if possible

  113. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    Gizza job though devil, I would have fun making up new demons for you. It’ll be fun tormenting the ‘good’. Who wants to be stuck up there with the mormons anyways? Hell has all the best movies, music, games, art…<3

  114. You are breaking the rules. Human race has worked hard to be where we are now and you are giving it all away. For free!

    That said, will I get a free cookie?

    I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

  115. Yeah, I’m not GIVING AWAY my soul when I can save that up for some gullible idiot to buy it, signed in my blood of course. You guys are all suckeers. 😉

    I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation- Shona

  116. My name is Steve, and I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation. He can have it now for that matter. Enjoy!

  117. “I, Sean, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I will donate it and ask for nothing in return. Same reason I’m an organ donor; I figure I won’t be using it when I’m dead. (I’m not even using it now)

    That was rather silly though.

  118. You cannot just make a pronouncement that overrides the law of the land. Therefore, if such a bargain were to be struck, the devil would still have to go through probate and even then would only be eligible for that percentage of my soul not claimed by Gordon Brown through inheritance tax. So, the only way the devil can get it all is if he is, in fact, Gordon Brown.

    Hmmm, not so surprising, eh?

    1. These legal angle comments are stupid. Who says there is any law in hell or that anyone must obey any law if there is one? And how arrogant to assume that if there is law in hell it would be that of the USA? Hell is a monarchy and the King of us damned decrees hell’s laws.

  119. “I, dominic agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation in return for vast earthly riches and full health for myself and my family.”

    As has been said above, I have to get something out of the deal. I’m not going to just give my soul away.

  120. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Awww, I was hoping to see the words ‘homo fuge’ appear.

    Doesn’t count unless written in blood and properly signed and notorised anyway.

  121. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I actually think this deal has already been struck, as a 12 year old in exchange for a pair of breasts and a training bra…. If I had known the gravity of the word eternal, I would have insisted they stayed in a northerly direction.

  122. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I am not a dualist, so it feels like I am uttering something which doesn’t make much sense.

  123. I, Scott H., agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation. In return, I’d like to finish that interrupted drink with Dr. Wiseman from TAM 5. The one where TK had to threaten to stomp on someone’s (the interrupter) throat until he was dead.

    Well, I’m not exactly trembling.

  124. I agree that upon my death Bill Gates (or failing that, anyone or anything else calling itself the devil) can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Honestly? Apart from the Bill Gates joke (‘joke’), a little twinge of doubt. No more than I get from being alone in a dark house and looking into the shadows, but I’m ashamed to admit it’s still there.

    Fortunately, as with being alone in the house, most of me knows better and it’s certainly not stopping me doing anything.

  125. I, Kay Rolph,agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.
    Wow, I thought I might have a little twinge of anxiety but no: nothing!

  126. My name is Scott, and I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Despite being a vehement atheist, my Christian upbringing still makes me feel nervous stating such a thing.

    Anyway, if Old Nick comes for me, I’ll rip his tits off.

  127. I, Tamara, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    I am an atheist and have no qualms about this at all.

  128. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”…

    Except that I feel very silly doing this; as a skeptic / humanist / atheist / rationalist / call it what you will, I find no reason to believe in:

    a) the existence of any devils, let along ‘the’ devil,
    b) a separately existing ‘soul’, let alone an eternally existing one

    Oh, and just as an aside, if a soul did exist separately and eternally, in what sense could it be said to be ‘mine’ unless ‘I’ also existed eternally?

    Bah! Pesky occultists ;o)

  129. I’m genuinely ashamed to admit that I’m reluctant to sign away an imaginary possession to a completely fictitious being. Plus, I’m an organ donor, so my soul is already. . .um. . .{sigh}.

  130. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” Kevin Charleston

    Darn, I smeared the screen – where should the blood go?

    My Catholic Mother will be rotating in her grave 😉

  131. But that’s the same as saying the christian church is honest and true and that I believe there IS a devil.
    And devil worship is just so 1970s!
    Damned if I do, damned if I don’t? LOL

  132. I like to treat my soul as a form of intellectual property. That way, I can sell licenses to as many buyers as I like!

    I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation, on the condition that not interfere with the rights of other license holders.

    In exchange, I’d like a donut.

    How do I feel about it? I’m a little sick to my stomach that this kind of nonsense has been so entrenched in our societies that people would hesitate to make a meaningless statement about a superstitious bogyman and his lake of fire.

  133. For me to say, and actually mean, “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” I would, first of all, have to believe there are such things as a soul and a devil, and by consequence a god. This leads me to question why the hell would I ever do such a thing?

  134. Just in case that chap would be around .. (0% but hey .. you have to keep an open mind, shouldn’t you) I’d want written proof from that chap that he will pay me for that during my present life in a major way. Why would I want to give him my soul with nothing in return. That’s not a pact!

  135. I agree that upon my death a fictional creature can have my fictional soul for an eternal fictional activity. Now, doesn’t that sound too silly to bother with? It does to me.

  136. Well “signing a pact with the devil” implies a knowledge, or at least acceptance, on my part that such a being exists. Now if I accepted that the devil exists, I would probably accept that God exists, which implies I would accept the existence of Hell and Heaven and eternal punishment and such, in which case making a pact with the devil would not be the most rational choice, I think..

    So no, no deal from me. So long as I don’t think this being exists, it is illogical to make a pact. As soon as I think it exists, it is in my own best interest not to make the pact. So in either case, no pact from me!

  137. I just had a friend who discovered the Blasphemy Challenge last month, so I can say here what I said to him. Direct copy from my email to him:

    I personally never cared enough to participate. It just seems to validate one particular set of superstitions/mythologies/whatever. I mean, should I have to bother with a near-infinite number of “unforgivable” acts just to invalidate any outlandish belief that someone has?

    “Oh, if you jump on your right foot with your left hand in your mouth it is the worst affront possible to the Sumerian pig-god Oc’atl-toc-tok! If you won’t do that, you must be living in fear of his Cloven Hoof of Bacony Vengence!”

    The greater challenge is for the true believers to let God do things for Himself. Whether it’s Islamic terrorists wearing exploding underpants or the Pope riding around behind bulletproof glass, it just seems like a kind of hubris that denies an all-powerful God.

  138. I Mark Ty-Wharton agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation…

    How I feel?

    Physical sensation of tummy turning over…

    Looking at patterns and interpretations, that’s a fairly powerful conversation someone created for me about death, devil, souls and damnation.

    Interesting…

  139. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation – Tracy King.

    Except I don’t have a soul, but that’s rather the point of the thing. Can’t give away what you don’t have, especially if you’re giving it away to something that doesn’t exist.

    Anyway, the Devil is busy looking at porn, he won’t even see this post.

  140. I, Mark Siddens, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Only fair, he gave me his a long time ago.

    1. Mark, I do not precisely what you meant by the last sentence or how serious you are. But in an indirect way you have insight. As part of being in hell we—I assume you will be there with me—we will give him our soul. The soul has both intellect and will. We will surrender both to him and adopt his beliefs as ours and allow him to substitute his will for ours and we will gladly do as he wills. I am pleased by that because I want to serve him precisely and completely as he wants of me in hell.

  141. I, Michaela, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Now I feel just like before.

    Slight chill maybe. But that’s just a drafty office. And now there’s a strange hissing sound. What is that? Is that?… Oh no! Snakes! Run!

  142. Well I personally believe that the devil is Paris Hilton, and she’s not having my soul. She’d bling it up and carry it round like a chihuahua.

  143. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation. Mariano.

    As the Devil, my soul is fiction. 😉

  144. “I , Mike Becker, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Lulz. I’ll be takin’ that place over, and starting up my own band of HEAVY METAL AWESOME.

    Or I’ll just be worm food, cause there is no hell, in which case we were totally lied to by our album covers.

  145. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I feel no reluctance whatsoever. My only slight concern is that this is inconsistent with my Pastafarian beliefs… I wouldn’t want to be turned away from the Beer Volcano.

  146. Since I don’t have a soul, (it’s not a matter of belief to me), and since I don’t believe in either the devil or any god, I can make this agreement – for whatever it may mean. To me, it is meaningless.

  147. it ridiculous what effect some words can have on a person… i dont particularly believe in anything – but i dont like labels so i dont like referring to myself as atheist… or anything else for that matter… i just go about my daily life without worrying about the afters… im a forensic archaeologist… i know what the body goes thru once its dead – and there is nothing heavenly about it!

    but yet… i dont know if it was my catholic upbringing or overly religious family… or the fact that i live in a overly religious country… that writing out those words still gives me the bejeeebbus… although i cant bring myself to say bloody mary in front of a mirror either!

    the mind is a powerful thing… and mine has a particularly nasty imagination… esp. in the dark! (i also suffer from sleep paralysis) so i dont need anymore demons in my life

    but it still amazes me that i think like that! i just cant explain it!!!! and im quite annoyed at myself for being that ridiculous… i guess though… this is what you were after! 🙂

  148. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    Why should i write only my first name? When can i meet Satan? He must have really cool stories to tell!

  149. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    How I feel? Like I just pushed Ctrl-C and then Ctrl-V. It’s a series of words that have a useful meaning only within certain belief structures. For someone outside of those belief structures, it has the same meaning as if I was to say “I agree that upon my death Charlie the Unicorn can have my time machine”.

  150. I, Phil, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    This agreement replaces any previous ones I may have made with the tooth fairy, father christmas, easter bunny, guardian angels, lucky talismans, earth spirits, flying spaghetti monster, buddha, allah etc.

    To be honest, I’m not sure what I’ve agreed to here, exactly. There seems to be very little agreement about what exactly the “devil”, “soul” and “damnation” mean, or what “having” my soul means. Is this “devil” creature merely expected to gain some sort of sadistic pleasure from tormenting me? Or will my soul be used more productively to commit further atrocities and annoy other supernatural beings? If it didn’t “have” my soul would something else “have” it instead? What are my choices here?

    Also, who or what is going to enforce this? What is the penalty if either party reneges on the deal? Will we be, er, damned instead? What is the proposed benefit to either party (as others have asked)?

    My feelings are mainly curiosity to know what the original proposer expected. Am I supposed to be a bit nervous now in case a red creature with horns suddenly bursts through the door? Yikes, it must be strange living in that world.

  151. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Doesn’t mean a thing to me. Neither do words like “soul” or “devil”.

  152. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    How do I feel? I feel like I have to make a joke [searches wit for joke…]. All I can come up with is something about Dr. Faustus taking a “pact lunch” to Hell.

  153. I, Jo Hatton, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Seems a bit of a lie, really. I’m agreeing a non-existent entity can have an abstract idea for an impossible concept. But it does seem to have dispelled the last traces of catholic doubt. Thanks!

  154. “I Rob Turpin agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    not really an issue as a confirmed athiest.

  155. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    When i die that is it. like a candle being blown out, No god, no devil, Silly people,

  156. I wonder if the results would be any different if this were set up more formally. Blog comments are by their nature quite light-hearted and not taken as seriously as, say, signing your name on an actual formal-looking contract.

    Strange to say, I’m as much an atheist as the next right-thinking person, but still am not going to do this. I’m trying to decide whether it’s because I don’t feel I have to prove myself or whether my scientific mind leads me never to rule out the possibility, however vanishingly small, that there might actually be a devil and it’s not worth the risk…

  157. If the devil were to exist, and all the people above are now damned (not that I acctualy believe that), wouldn’t that be an evil enough act on Richards part making them sell their souls to also deny him entry into “heaven”?
    Just thinking out loud…

    1. I am glad you asked that. I was going to tell Richard that just the survey invites us to choose hell and is intrinsically evil no matter how much in denial he hides behind survey. I do not have the doubt you do and as I have enthusiastically signed it as I explain below I am certain Richard will be sharing hell with all of us.

  158. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation…again.”
    My feelings on this aren’t very good, aren’t very good at all, despite my highly individual belief system.
    It’s just that the character of the Devil is known for being underhanded and better looking than me.
    So why would I do this, I dunno, maybe I’m a follower, or maybe I just have a really good lawyer.

    1. To begin with the word “again” leaves no doubt you are are follower of evil. Despite your attempt at what might be called gallows humor, and despite claims to a highly individual belief I sense some anxiety or fear that the real devil is a brutal monster and hell will involve severe personal pain. Not to get too theological, but that highly individual belief system may involve a failure and implicit rejection of the beliefs that qualify for heaven. Although I cannot be certain it implies that you are not drawn to God such as he may be out of the unselfish love for him that is required. No sweat and no criticism because at some point you just have to know who you are. I have no doubt personally that the devil is a monster and that the pains of hell are enormous. But if you truly mean what you wrote you are affirming a personal and overriding choice of your personal evils and identify with Satan and his overall evil. When you and I are in hell our love of evil will translate into absolute hatred of the opposite, namely good itself and the god who is all good. To be quite specific we will obstinately refuse to repent our evils because we will always love them even if we hate the punishment. But console yourself about hell pain because according to the experts with the evil will we will have (and likely you already have) being in heaven with the god we hate and all the others of good will who we will completely hate would make what we will experience in hell seem like the real heaven. Just own who you are and want to be as evidenced by choosing damnation “again” and accept that no matter what pain hell involves you are making the best choice for the being you have chosen to become. Considering the selfish requirements a “loving” being imposes for entry which will then involve eternally bowing and grovelling I am absolutely certain that evil is the absolutely correct choice for everyone, and I am pleased you and I have made that choice. Honestly, do you want to spend everlasting eternity submitting in heaven? It is clear to me that you do not. Many will be surprised first that there is a hell and that they have landed there. They then will be compelled to worship and completely submit to Satan. We will not be compelled because even before reaching hell we have willingly submitted and by choice worshipped him. And even if he is the monster I am sure he is we will take him as he is and no matter what he dishes out because he is the embodiment of everything evil and evil being our true love that is what will really count. Dr. Teeth, I look forward to sharing hell with you because anxiety aside that is what you desire. And I am thrilled you have that desire.

    2. Dr. Teeth, this actually may precede my longer and first response. Given the years since you committed I do not know if you will read anything I write. But if you do, and if you are still committed as you were then, and have some interest in making contact with one of your true soulmates let me know. I may even be willing to post my phone number, or if you post yours I will call. Only if you want.

  159. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Feel fine, since actually the Flying Spaghetti Monster will get my soul, whatever there is of it, and He has prior claim. Ramen.

  160. I have been unaware of any recent announcement that you had been appointed as the marketing/sales assistant for Satan. I don’t have a problem with the words – but don’t understand what the offer is.

  161. My imagination runs wild with all the possibilities.

    I’ve watched too many horror movies that teach us that if a character goes against the moral code eg has sex before marriage or says red rum into a mirror they die in a gore infested slash fest by the end of the next scene.

    I’m gonna follow Jamie lee Curtis’s good girl image, but first I need to cancel my goat slaying and virgin sacrifice evening.

    Seriously though, I realise that there’s no harm in doing this but I can’t shift the what ifs from my mind. I’ve just watched too many movies.

  162. I get into enough trouble with comments like ‘I’m less “pro-choice” and more “anti-life”.’ without fundathumpers claiming devil worship.
    (However, there is a segment of the Quest cult who are doing a Psalm 109 prayer fest on my ass… so, if the devil wishes to give me immense wealth and power in this life, and a non-executive directorship in the after life, a 4 book deal and a career in after dinner speaking, he can have what passes for my soul. I am a man of wealth and taste already…)

  163. Although it seems incredibly unlikely that there is a devil, I’m not ready to sign away my “soul” on the off chance that I turn out to be wrong. This is a straw man argument made by Christians in an attempt to “prove” that we actually believe. The straw man is the idea that we know there is no god, so what’t the harm in selling your soul? The reality is that we don’t and can never know, it just seems highly implausible, there is no proof, and therefore there is no reason to take one belief over another or any belief at all.

    1. btw – I know there are arguments against this using different scenarios, but in this case there is no tangible benefit to saying it, so why take the risk? You could also make the argument that then there is no harm in saying that you accept Jesus Christ, but if there is an all knowing god, then he would know I didn’t believe in Jesus so what would be the point? So I think the point people made about receiving something in return is valid, although I would be awfully suspicious if someone actually offered me a large sum of money for my soul…

  164. The problem with this bargin is not about the existance of the Devil, it is about the payoff of the bargin.

    Since eternity is, well, really long, but all we can conceive of is our life time let’s put this in terms we can understand. Here is the bargin:

    Satan will give you as much money/fame/power/or what ever as you want (or can handle) for a year. After that Satan gets to punch you in the face every hour on the hour for the rest of your life.

  165. “I, Jen, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Yeah, I’ve still got enough of my upbringing ingrained in me to feel a bit hesitant at that, but not that much. ::hits Submit::

  166. this does remind me of when a friend of mine suddenly was all into god and tried to get me to see her way (Which I hated!!!)

    So when she tried again I told her ok if god will show me a bunny tomorrow on my way to work I will believe! She agreed.

    Well …. I did see a bunny but I told her I didn’t LOL

    I just don’t believe there is someone like a god or devil.

    I believe in the laws of energy and think we are all made of energy
    and energy can’t be destroyed or created. so our energy just gets back into one big energy pool and come back in some form or another

    So I have no problem with saying “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

  167. I Arne agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation in excange for $ 1 000 000 and lots of attractive women. And some awesome superpowers.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure my soul is both safe and non-existing, but I still won’t bargain with it unless I get something in retur.

    In honesty – I fell completley fine. I’d probably sell my soul for a pizza if I was hungry.

  168. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    – Robert Price

    well, that was easy. So what do I get for this shiney new soul of mine. Am I selling it or am I giving it away?

  169. Brian, Laura, (and probably others in comments I did not read)
    you are repeating the logical fallacy of Pascal’s Wager here. Hedging against the unlikely possibility of the existence of the supernatural won’t work – you are doomed as an atheist whether you write the words here or not…

    1. No, I understand Pascal’s Wager very well, but in this case I have no desire to sell my “soul” and there is no tangible benefit to saying I will sell it. I am not going to subscribe to any belief in a supernatural being to “hedge my bets”, but I also can’t deny the unlikely possibility that there is one. Pascal’s wager is about believing in god to hedge your bets, which presents a false dichotomy. The same false dichotomy does not apply to a refusal to categorically deny the existence of a particular deity.

    2. just to be clear, the reason the false dichotomy of Pascal’s Wager doesn’t apply to a refusal to complete deny the existence of a deity is because I can refuse to deny the existence of every deity. Whereas many religions require you to abandon all other gods, I have no issues with the idea that they all have an equally small, but non zero chance of being true. That doesn’t mean that I am going to go around trying to follow the rules of every religion to avoid going to any of their respective hells, but I am also not going to make a statement of absolute denial of any of them.

    That said… a lot of you guys are really bummin’ me out. For the Love of FSM, it’s just a bit of fun, quit over thinking it, lighten up.

  171. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”
    – Chris

    Total non-deal for the devil really, because there is no such thing as a “soul”. Then again, there is no such thing as the devil either…

  172. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” — Meredith Raley

    I’m an atheist, and I barely thought twice about it. Of course, I’ve already convinced people to buy my “soul” twice before (both in high school, because I didn’t bring money for lunch), so I’m not sure how this deal works out for the devil. And I do expect something in return, preferably more than a free lunch.

    -Jareth
    The best word to describe my feelings on this would be: nonchalant.

  174. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”
    Raül

    well, may be eight years ago, I would feel some scare and anguish, but not now. Now I’m really fine. Thank you skepctics.

  175. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Myk

    I’m quite happy to allow a non-existent entity to do whatever it wants with a non-existent object/property.

    And if anyone at some stage wishes to buy my soul for some physical return, I’ll sell it to them, too.

  176. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    //Gustaf

    Already taken the “The Blasphemy Challenge” so why not this?

  177. Sorry, I’m not getting into a pact with the Devil unless he’s got something to offer me.

    I’ll sell my soul for $250,000. What’d ya say?

  178. “I, Eric, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.”

    It’s interesting. I know that the Devil doesn’t exist. I know that souls don’t exist. As much as possible, I let reason, rational judgment, and humanist values guide my behavior. Yet I’d be lying if I said I don’t feel a twinge of discomfort at typing that. I guess that over 30 years of religious indoctrination can take a long time to completely deprogram. Even knowing what’s happening on an intellectual level doesn’t completely eradicate the emotional baggage, but I think that exercises like this help.

    1. I, Linda, agree …
      …that although I was inspired by Datan0de’s post to go for it, I can’t do this. Let me sleep on it and maybe I will be able to do it tomorrow.
      Very disappointed in myself. 😦
      I wonder if the fact that I actually started to type it and didn’t just copy&paste affected my capability.
      “I, Linda, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.”

    2. I, Linda, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

      Interesting. I can type it out now I’ve already done it with the copy & paste.
      Weird.

    3. Yes, I know that, that’s why I was upset that I couldn’t do it initially.
      I blame hangovers from when I was religious as an impressionable teenager.

  179. No.
    This answer is completely unrelated to the hypothetical existence or non-existence of the (a) devil.
    My answer only reflects my fundamental beliefs on right and wrong, good and bad, strong for personal choices in life and society.
    As such, a pact with the devil will only reflect a fundamental, wrongly-directed road to destruction.
    (it could be quite well that I’m Nr x100 making this statement, I’ve not yet read all the other comments….)

    1. hmmm, now after reading about half the replies I’ve noticed that I would better have set a good price for this hypothetical soul of mine.

      So here we go: good friends, lots of fun and parties, plenty of liquor, great food and handsome well-humoured guys, good books and the best movies, great house with enormous badrooms, refrigatators, bath tubs and swimming pools, and good looks with good health, all for a very very long life time.
      How about that ?

    2. But giving your soul to the devil doesn’t affect anything until you die, does it? That seems to be how most of the myths go, aside from the ones where the devil is also double-crossing you in the real world. You can be as good or bad as you want until you die, even if the devil is real.

    3. Elizebeth

      you are what makes this blog so great
      first you say no, but then you read all the posts to change your mind
      GOOD !!!

  180. I, Sebastián Hoch, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    It does feel weird to type that, but I’m pretty convinced that the devil, god, angels, etc., are completely nonsense and don’t exist.

  181. I, Richard, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    Umm, OK. I’ve got HIV, so cure me of that, find me my one true love, must have a very hairy chest *giggles*. When I’m cured of my ‘dis-eases’ I want a path to wealth and eternal life, I’m already talented as all hell so shouldn’t be too hard!! Hairdresser, artist, singer…. I think that call that a Renaissance man or something!! LOL

    As for my “fear”…. I’ve studied various paths including Satanism for a few months. I’m Wiccan by faith but non practicing for the most part except when I’m needed for energy work. I believe in other dimensions where such creatures as Vampires and Werewolves dwell so hey, why not?

    Bring it on!

  182. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Since neither souls nor the devil exist, it doesn’t bother me one bit….

  183. I, benaud do solemnly agree that upon my death (or even before, if desired) the devil (or any other imaginary deity/fairy/emissary of Santa Claus) can have my soul, or any other part of me for eternal damnation or maybe for a good defiling or game of bowls. I could care less about such superstitions, but I want something in return as well – I’m thinking donut, or something yummy like that, maybe a lamington .. mmmmmm, something yummy … failing that, give me maybe a trip into space AND something yummy like a donut .. oh and Satan isn’t all bad, I mean, you gotta think that he’s going to look after his own .. so I’m just going to check the fridge for a donut …

    benaud

  184. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    I would be much more concerned if there was a physical manifestation of the devil in front of me asking for a signature in blood, but even then hell seems much more interesting than heaven.

  185. I guess for me, this demonstrates that I’m still technically agnostic rather than atheist. I’m 99.9999% sure it’s all bunk, but I’m still not prepared to take that 1 in a million chance – sorry Richard, you got me with this one!

  186. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    –Scott

    These are just words to me. I have absolutely no concern about the perceived risks. Also this statement is my opinion and in no way is it intended to insult anyone’s beliefs.

  187. “I, ScottE, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I also agree the devil can have my sole. I added that just for the halibut.

  188. “I, Jarek, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I said it aloud, too. I feel kind of silly. It made me laugh.

  189. As an atheist, I don’t have faith that the devil doesn’t exist. Just that there it is incredibly unlikely. But even a 99.99999999999999% chance he doesn’t mean it is impossible.

    Really the devil we all know and love is a man made concept so maybe in the far distant future someone will ‘crate’ him. Or if there really are infinite dimension he would have to exist in one of them!

    I won’t sign… just in case 🙂

  190. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Feel exactly the same as I did before I cut and pasted…

  191. If the Devil does exist, he’d already have my soul anyway what with being a filthy asexual atheist who eats shellfish and pork.

    I think the friend misunderstands how a pact with the devil works – if the devil were to appear and offer me something in exchange for my soul, obviously I’d believe in him (either because he exists or because my belief in him is what made him apparently appear).

  192. Not saying it; not because I fear a devil or an afterlife, but because this sounds far too close to acknowledging the existence of such thing, and by my personal code of ethics that would be lying (i.e. as I do not believe in devils or souls, I cannot in good conscience agree to a pact that presupposes their existence).

  193. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Yeah… I’ve sold my soul to several different people on seperate occasions, and this is the first time I’ve done it without being paid. Which, as an economist, I don’t much like. But a soul being worth nothing, probably makes sense.

  194. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.”
    Utterly meaningless as there is obviously no such mythical creature.

    I think Pat Condell had the one the christians really think is the great kahuna that can’t be erased, so may I please add:

    “I deny the holy spirit.”
    woo-woo.

  195. No point in signing your souls away because…

    SATAN ALREADY OWNS YOUR SOULS AND YOU WILL ROT IN HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY, UNLESS YOU REPENT, YOU GODLESS SODOMITES…

    i’m a mild mannered, caring pious person who wants best for all.

    Thank you.

    1. Judge not lest ye be judged, and anyone daring enough to disobey was warned that the same measure of judgment he applies to others will be applied to him. That rant was as harsh a measure as can be given so be prepared. Your entire message is a denial of being mild mannered. You do not want the best for all but instead it is clear you are PROUD to present yourself as better than us. We both will be in hell, I am sure, but only one of us will be shocked. And given your thinly veiled attitude I will look you up to personally gloat over your damnation and will rub your burning nose in hell shit forever.

  196. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I think I may have accidentally commited my soul to Jesus during a hymn I sung as a child but if not then the devil is welcome to it.

  197. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”
    I realize that i am still superstitious and at the beginning i didn’t really like the idea of write it, but at least i know that I can fight against my superstition.

  198. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Not much to say about how I feel. Maybe glad to do my small bit to help to counter the claim that skeptics would in general be too superstitious to agree to this.

  199. But I want to be a vamipre so not sure how that works out. Would I lose my soul when turned into a blood sucker or would the devil take it? Do I keep my soul till I get staked through the heart and die an imortal death? Its all to confusing.

  200. On the one hand, my saying that “I agree upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” is roughly equivalent to saying that “I agree that every Tuesday afternoon the Jabberwock may use my favorite silver tea set.” I have no soul and there is no devil; likewise, I have no Tea Set and there is no Jabberwock. Therefore I feel no qualms about allowing the devil and the Jabberwock their respective claims.

    And I understand the point of demonstrating that some, even those who disbelieve, may be reluctant to say such things. No doubt there’s interesting psychology to be found in that.

    On the other hand, poking fun at those whose beliefs cause them to recoil from such a statement is akin to finding someone who is afraid of earthworms and choosing to react to that fear by dangling one in front of their nose. I know that earthworms are harmless (as is the nonexistent devil) and that fear of worm or devil is irrational. But that sort of taunting is childish and cruel, and doesn’t help our case.

    1. Hmm, I got a letter from a Bill Owens today. He’s my Congressman. I have a “Bill Owens for Congress” sign in my window, actually. I assume you’re not him? 😉

    2. Nope, that’s not me. Nor am I the ex-governor of Colorado, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff or mildly famous basketball player. Probably couldn’t get any of them to sell their souls, at least not to the devil. . .

  201. As an atheist I’m reluctant to sign a pact with the devil in the same way I’m reluctant to pray to Jesus. I don’t participate in silly rituals or talks with no one on the receiving end.

    For you to conflate that sentiment with ‘atheists are secretly scared of the devil,’ as you seem to imply, is ridiculous and seeks to confuse those on the fence about religion and belittle those who use reason and logic to guide them in their decisions.

    I don’t know what a soul is — everyone seems to mean a different thing by that word. I don’t know what the devil is — everyone seems to have a different definition for that, too.

    I’ll say this. My name is Billy. I don’t believe in a soul or a devil and I deny the ‘holy spirit’ and all the profits and saints what have you.

    Feel free to visit me at Good Reason News.

  202. I won’t make such a pact, because devils and souls clearly do not exist. It’s like promising my chi to the Easter Bunny for eternity.

    However, if there were a God, and if that God was sick enough to create a world where people are tortured eternally as punishment for a finite amount of bad deeds, then I don’t want to be hanging around that guy anyways. Especially if the only people he allows into his Heaven club are those who stroke his ego and suck up to him the most. I’d rather be in Hell with all the cool people.

  203. I, Lee, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    I have only recently become an atheist and I must confess to feeling somewhat off doing this.

  204. Nope. Won’t do it. It just seems so arrogant. And though I go about my life as if there is no devil, there are still a world of things I am more sure of than the devil’s nonexistence. With really no proof either way, I’m sticking with: no devil, unless proven otherwise.

  205. “I, Vern, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I feel like a grown-up who just wrote a letter to Satan Claus.

  206. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”
    Gren. I feel like I just did the sought of nothing that used to upset my poor old mum.

  207. I think I would, but the thing that I would be very concerned about is that the pact be very specific that nothing I get in return should contain anything such as “Poetic justice, irony, obvious omissions that, although not directly specified would generally be presumed.” I’d also want to be sure that nothing I got in return would be something like “Manifest to a degree which makes it a burden and not a gift” or that there be nothing included that would negate the value of what I received.

    I’d want my lawyer to look over it many times to make it air tight on that. You see, that’s how the devil gets you. Like you wish to be really rich and you get that but end up being unable to spend the money because it’s from a crime. Or you wish to be president and he’ll then make you president during impeachment precedings, or you wish to live 500 years and he’ll get you sentenced to life in prison with no parole.

    That’s the thing. Any deal you make with the devil, you have to be really sure that it doesn’t turn out being ironic.

  208. guys,guys,guys.

    In exchange for nothing, you get nothing.

    “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Tormod.

    It felt like I would be saying “Frodo, come home. All is forgiven. PS, I sold the ring. Bilbo” and trying to put some genuine emotion in it.

    Stupid, basically.

    But since this appears to matter to some folks. No wonder that talking to religious cronies is such a waste if this statement at any level feels significant to them….

  209. I’m an atheist. I also find it exceedingly unlikely that there is someone named “Bargle Wargle Magoo” currently living in Zimbabwe. That doesn’t mean I’ll sign a legal contract giving anything to said Bargle in the event that he/she does exist, as the downside, while infinitesimally small, is balanced by no upside.

    When I die, neither god nor devil is getting my soul even if gods, devils, and/or souls do exist.

  210. I, The Skeptheist, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation. However, given that I am an igtheist I shall have to include the proviso that my agreement is subject to what is meant by the term “devil”.

  211. “….and in other news, it emerged that almost 100 people, all subscribers of an online blog by Richard Wiseman, came into extraordinary luck today.
    At least 30 won large amounts of money on the Euro millions lottery, with many of them winning in excess of 1 million pounds, while others became overnight music sensations, securing album and tour deals. Some received gifts of private jets from unknown benefactors, and one man awakened this morning with a penis, so large, he was afraid to leave the house.

    Claims that these windfalls were all due to a mass pact to sell their souls to the devil were dismissed after nearly every single person claimed that although they had not always been, they were absolute believers in god, and from now on would never miss a day of church”

  212. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Well. I already did so before my death – although most people call it work…..

  213. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Should I be wrong and there is a heaven and hell then I definitely want to be where all the sinners are sounds like one “Hell” of a party.

  214. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Satan, you now own my soul!
    Please give me a boyfriend, a laptop, free college tuition, and a million dollars!
    It was nice doing business with you. lol

    How do I feel about this:
    Well basically – lmfao
    The devil doesn’t exist and besides, according to ORIGINAL christian requirements for selling your soul, you can’t do it this way anyhow!

    The real requirements:

    You have to write THIS on a fresh, dried lamb’s skin in your own blood…
    “I promise [Demon name or the devil] my eternal soul in return for ____ years of service and [whatever material objects you demand]. I sign in my own blood to seal this contract forever. [Sign your name]”

    And then, supposedly, six demons [some of high order, such as Beelzebub, or Azrael [the anti-christ]] will appear before you and add their signatures at the bottom… and in this way you will sell your soul.

    Of course, this is all bs… and I wouldn’t suggest doing this, think of the poor lamb! And writing a contract in your blood is gross and messed up.
    But stilll… LOL – XD!!

  215. “I, TS, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I do not feel any different, but it did inspire me to look up an old track on my iPod by The Cult called “King Contrary Man”.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    I saw the devil
    The contrary man
    I saw the devil down the long, long road

    1. Beautiful and I truly hope the outcome of the song is your true choice. I would love to spend some burning time with you. See you there.

  216. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    Although I think it’s too late I sold it to him ages ago for a sandwich, and he couldn’t even bother adding pickle, the bastard… Although if I win the lottery next week (despite the fact I never buy tickets) I think I may look more favourably on the agreement

    But even though I sold my soul ages ago I noticed no difference to my life… My “soul” should such a think exist, has not been any use in this life, except the afore mentioned sandwich, so why should it be so valuable in the next. If I only find it useful when selling it why should i keep it…

    Besides who in their right mind would want to go to heaven I will bet if such a place as heaven exists there are no interesting people there so it would be a very boring and lonely place for all the fun people in this life… Mind you should any one in this life die and go to heaven and find a decent rock bar there i may eat my words but only if heaven and hell have some type of emailing system…probably invented by god in the hopes of making the heavenly people brag and the hell burned jealous…

    besides at the end of the day who do you think would be far more interesting and fun purely on conversation… I know who I would pick!!!

  217. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    As an Atheist, I don’t believe in these Fairytales.
    But if there IS a God, then I really hope this soul selling works out.
    I’d rather spend eternity in hell as one single day in heaven with crazy Kooks like Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Ken Ham, Kent Hovind or Ray Comfort.
    Imagine you had to watch Ray Comfort peel Bananas your whole eternal afterlife. That would be the REAL hell.

  218. Nope, won’t do it…
    I do believe and I fear for those who did cut and paste the text.
    And even in those moments of doubt, I turn to Pascal’s Wager…I live a better life believing in a God of Love.

  219. This is a funny thing coming from the man who taught me that keeping a lucky charm has benefits regardless of whether you believe in it or not.
    Offer declined, on account of potential psychological side effects.

  220. “I, Duxall Inarow, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.”
    I welcome the challenge and am solid in my belief that it will never happen. If I am wrong, that DevilMan will be up against his worst nightmare.

  221. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    it is just stupid to even be reluctant. One sentence can not do anything to you.

  222. I wonder how many people denying the Holy Spirit have any idea whether “deny” is in the aorist or imperfect tense in the original Greek. I’m not sure myself, but my money’s on the imperfect.

    Here’s the point. In Greek grammar (at least the ancient variety), the aorist tense refers to a specific event, so “Richard Wiseman posted [aorist] on his blog” means that Richard posted on his blog on one specific occasion. The imperfect tense, meanwhile, refers to frequent or habitual events, so “Richard Wiseman posted [imperfect] on his blog” means that Richard often posted on his blog.

    So if the denial of Holy Spirit is imperfect (as I suspect it is) then denying it once doesn’t really mean much, and the relevant Bible verse really means: “If you deny the Holy Spirit frequently enough, then there comes a point beyond which you cannot be forgiven”.

    And that’s without even going into exactly what it means to “deny” something in the first place…

    1. On second thoughts, I think Greek only makes the imperfect/aorist distinction in the past tense (I don’t actually know any Greek; I just collect linguistic trivia). But the point remains standing on several levels.

  223. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation. Frankly, as a gay former-Christian, [now atheist] I figured he [she?… it?] already had my soul, so I doubt this trivial statement matters much ;-P

  224. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    And the eagle that eats Prometheus’ liver can have mine too, and the big bad wolf from Red Riding Hood can gobble me up!

    Imaginary things just aren’t scary 🙂

  225. But posting this is pointless. I don’t believe in any god so I wouldn’t post to sayI’ll be good for the rest of my life if a god will let me into heaven therefore why would I consider doing the alternative with the Devil – just because it seems a bit naughty?!

    By making that particular statement are we not just buying into the religious populations agenda by giving credence to the idea of a devil.

    Or am I just overthinking :-O

    Candyman, Vandyman, Candyman!!

    I

  226. Funny, as a raised-catholic-turned-atheist, the idea of posting this or saying it aloud still evokes an uncomfortable feeling.

    So, what have I got out of this exercise? A reinforcement of my core beliefs in science and logic and the lack of evidence for any afterlife or deity.

    “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.”

  227. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    If the devil does exist, I think it is only right that he/she/it brings an eternal damnation upon my death as a punishment for my disbelief in any heaven, hell, god, jesus, devil, higher being or whatever. I’m quite prepared to take that risk because I do not believe in them, nor can I make myself.

    Reading that back, it sounds like a complete contradiction. I don’t believe in the devil, but I am prepared to be proven wrong, and by proven I mean with scientific evidence (essentially before I die) and by seeing the devil stood before me.

    I guess my atheism doesn’t lie with whether any intangible being exists, for I believe they don’t exist, but I’m not prepared to say that they definitely do not exist.

    This has defiantly been an insightful process in terms of my beliefs or lack of them.

  228. I, Steffen, hereby declare that:

    – in the (very improbable) case that an afterlife exists
    – that this afterlife (even more improbable) is modeled exactly like of the Christian doctrine
    – in which the faithful go to heaven, eternally praising God
    – and the unfaithful and mortal sinners go to hell, awaiting eternal damnation

    – that in that case I *beg* to be sent to hell.

    Anything would be better and much more interesting than to have to praise, praise, praise all day long the “Beloved Father”, for all eternity.

  229. Well, technically “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.” is not a pact, because (assuming a soul actually existed) I’m giving something away for nothing. I’ll amend it to an actual pact:

    I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation in exchange for a wish granting genie who will go to my wife, children, or closest living relative.

    There, that’s better.

    Now, how do I feel?

    No different. Except that I feel like I’ve wasted some time on silly fantasy exercise.

  230. I, Jeremy, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation in exchange for a can of red bull, condoms, a knitting needle and 30,000 green M&Ms.

  231. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    And for good measure the Holy Spirit doesn’t exist.

    It’s pathetic that over 200 years after the enlightenment people still believe in these bronze age fairy stories.

  232. The concept of God and Satan are clearly human constructs, and every preceding version looks more ridiculous as new fairy tales replace them(Zeus anyone?)

    But making this pact would still leave me feeling funny, if I’m telling the whole truth. (You asked for *feelings*, right?)

    Religion was pervasive when I was growing up, and it was taken EXTREMELY seriously by some family members that it must have rubbed off somehow.
    Because I tried so long and so earnestly to “find God” (no matter that He never showed up), well, it would still make the old, irrational childish corner of my mind uncomfortable.

    Yeah, religion is dumb.
    But enlightened scepticism is sometimes no match for years of indoctrination and threats of eternal damnation.

  233. Not that I care enough to read 360 comments to see if anyone else feels the same way, but isn’t this a trivialisation of the concept of selling the soul? Bear with me: the soul would be the most precious thing you possess. To give it up can’t be a lighthearted decision, unless you’re profoundly stupid (or ludicrously altruistic); would you give away everything – including the clothes on your back, the organs, blood, bones and other flesh of your body – that is yours alone (assuming you never married because you spent too much time arguing hypotheticals on the internet)? Really? Would you do it now, today? Just pack it all in, let everything that is yours become someone else’s? (HA! Yes. Your debts. We get it.)

    This is the question you are being asked when you are asked if you would sell your soul. It has nothing to do with religion particularly, it’s a question of loss, death, and finality. Everyone who posted the phrase because they’re not afraid of the bogeyman, take a bow. No, not there… step a little closer to the kerb… the 23 will be along in a second. Don’t forget you’re not afraid to lose your most prized possessions.

    Whether or not you believe in god, gods, akashic records or the Beatles, the possibility of loss exists (as much as a possibility can be said to exist), and whether you fear it or not is largely irrelevant. As the smartarses (aren’t we all, though) pointed out early on that there should be a return for your soul, let’s ask the obvious: since some people clearly are prepared to give up their lives for others, what do they get in return? Have they spent their entire lives being indoctrinated for exactly that? The chap who just dented the 23 pushing you out of the way, for example. Is he a type? Easily derided because of his views? Perhaps. Perhaps, he even got a momentary smug sense of self-satisfaction, knowing he had finally fulfilled his promise (to himself) that he would indeed give up his all without fear. Perhaps the last thing through his mind was his spleen. You’ll never know, and saying you’d take his place in that scenario doesn’t mean you wouldn’t be frozen in fear, or simply oblivious, in his position.

    So really, instead of asking “what do I get for my soul”, and rashly promising a thing you know you do not possess (which is a fraudulent habit of thought), you should be continually asking “these valuable kidneys, do I really want to just give them both away?”, and no amount of dogmatic insistence that religion has neither questions nor answers will change that. After all, tradition has it that the act of selling one’s soul is not irreversible. You could repent. Or you could be less easily gulled into considering religious traditions so literally, or insisting that your first reading of a given text or situation must be correct.

    Come on, people, the man asked you to go with your guts, and you unquestionably did.

    1. I certainly agree my soul is my most precious personal possession. Although some are “selling” in the sense of seriously or jokingly requesting something trivial in exchange, you fail to appreciate the significant numbers of us who are giving our soul to Satan or to hell if you prefer unconditionally and with no expectation of getting anything but hell. Why would we do that? Because as a matter of free will we can refuse to love God, love good, choose to hate him, and refuse to give him our soul because we love our specific evils, and by extension evil generally far more. And further by extension hate the opposite of evil which is good and thus hate the embodiment of good in perfection. If you are informed about relevant Christian teaching it is consistent with the idea the God damns no one; all of us in hell damn ourselves as a matter of refusing to repent the evil of our sin which we love even if we hate the punishment. Repentance because of hatred of the pain even though we love our sin would be of no effect. If we love evil as fully as some of us already do and all will in hell, being forced to spend even one second in the presence of perfect good and in the company of the saints who have perfected their personal good would involve far more real torment than we will endure in the endless eternity of hell. Everyone is entitled to judge us as stupid, irrational or even insane. True or not we are who we are, we love what we love, and we hate what we hate, and therefore have made the correct personal choice given those factors despite hell torment.

  234. I don’t see any point in doing this as it’s pointless. Besides didn’t I already condemn my soul to hell when I took the rational response’s blasphemy challenge? 🙂

  235. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Now, Satan is my Lord (doing the heavy metal horns).

  236. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    But in exchange, he will give me riches, health and women. I mean, I won’t give it for free 😉

  237. The concept of good and bad is represented as God being good and the Devil being bad. As I’d rather not be associated with bad things then the answer is know I would not make such a pact.

    1. Yeah, I agree.

      I am a Christian, though of the Karen Armstrong/John Shelby Spong variety, so I don’t believe in a literal devil, a literal hell or even a literal theistic deity. (I also believe that the historical evidence that we have strongly indicates that Jesus did not believe in a literal hell, eternal torment of any kind or that “the devil”, whatever that means, has any say in what happens to your soul. That’s another topic.)

      I was brought up in a liberal denomination, so I’ve never believed in a literal devil. However, “the devil” is still, to me, much more than a fictional character. It is a mythological archetype for a dark aspect of human nature, and I refuse to ally myself with that, even in jest.

  238. What an atrocious thing to do. Oh you may think the devil doesn’t exist and think it is fun but you could be wrong in which case you have signed up for an eternity of hellish torment. Why not make a pact with God that you will be with Him in eternity. That is just as much fun (even if you don’t believe) and it is much safer.
    Come on Richard get your mind off evil committments for if God does exist you will be held responsible.

    1. Eternity of any kind is a torture I would not want to have to endure, heaven or hell-they’re both equally evil.

      What you’re proposing is just Pascal’s Wager, and it doesn’t work – It only allows for god or no god. It doesn’t for example allow for a god that punishes people who waste their time in worship rather than practical action – or any other of the near infinite possibilities there are.

  239. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”,
    It’s not like I feel serious while writing this. I think that if the devil monitors what I write and is now grinning with happiness with what I wrote, he would be so stupid believing me that I really entrust to him my soul, if I have any.
    The truth is I want to believe in god and devil and such, but I lost the feeling some time ago, so I am not anymore affected by things like this.
    Maybe some of us wanted to believe in supernatural beings and after-life because we are afraid that this will be all of it after our last breath is breath, nothing but a span of a 70 – 90 years of life living in this world. So we clung to something like the devil. Honestly I think that if I would choose between dying and disappearing transforming and becoming again a part of an ecosystem, like what reality say’s, or to live a life a soul, but with the devil in a fire and stuff, with a red club house, with devil hot girls, I’ll choose: eternal damnation

    1. All you have to do is say what you said because that reflects you are evil, and Satan and hell are what you want. I commend you.

  240. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    In exchange I want one desire for day til the day of my death…

  241. Well, I enjoyed the humorous responses, but a lot of them confirm why there are certain strains of humanism that just don’t appeal to me.

    I was raised religious and now consider myself an unbeliever, but I always understood that there were legitimate concerns for making sense of good, evil, mortality and eternity beyond whatever science and logic could explain. I think you can at least respect, without necessarily accepting, the belief in the existence of evil without trivializing it to something childish like the tooth fairy. (And I don’t use “childish” cavalierly, either. To a 75-year-old Christian theologian, the idea that “There’s no proof!” is a valid argument for the nonexistence of God or the devil is itself childish. It’s relative.)

    If this is just a two-minute thought experiment than I guess this doesn’t matter, but rather than laugh at the absurdities, I feel obligated to live with the difficult questions. My reason tells me to pay no heed to supernaturalism and superstition, but my soul (yes, that word…or just call it feeling or emotional inclination) tells me there has to be something that makes us unique from other beings besides our opposable thumbs…and if there isn’t, well, then I’m compelled to contemplate the limits of my essence instead of just sneering at the abyss.

    Unicorns and Spaghetti Monsters.

    1. And yes, I’m fully aware that there’s a devilled jug on my webpage. So take that, Richard! I had the satanic theme going long before you did.

  242. I, Carles Mateu, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Jo, Carles Mateu, accepto que a la meva mort el dimoni pot quedar-se la meva ànima per a la condemnació eterna.

    Yo, Carles Mateu, acepto que a mi muerte el demonio puede quedarse mi alma para la condenación eterna.

    Just if devil doesn’t speaks english….

  243. I, Luis, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    I would love to take over the world, of course, in exchange.

    Well, I feel like a rat in a cage, I mean, despite of my rage.

    luis r.

  244. I, Fernando Trigo Chouzinho, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation

    What I feel?
    Most religions invented by humans think that my soul will burn eternally in hell for being an atheist, Marxist, apostate, bisexual … Doing this really has not changed the situation, right?

    1. I too am a Satanist but one of my frustrations is that I have never been able to connect with a group that worships the conventional Satan instead of redefining him to do away with his evil essence. See you in hell where we can worship in person.

  245. the devil doesn’t exist. why all the fuss people?
    if he did *hypothetically* exist i wouldn’t give him my *soul* its mine! why do i have to give it to him?

  246. I tried to do this when I was a kid…

    I stared into a mirror and said the devil he could have my soul if he gave me the gift of music – a kinda Crossroads scenario…but in a downstairs bathroom in Belfast!

    Don’t think I went through with it,and I wouldn’t draw up the pact – even though I’m agnostic!

    Proof the catholic religion refuses to completely relinquish its grasp!!

    😉

    1. I second Anton. But not to put too fine a point on it if fear of hell is your motivation, strictly speaking you will be in hell. Repentance of sin based solely on fear of hell is selfish and lacks the essential salvation ingredient of being drawn to god out of unselfish love and adoration. If you regret your sins solely because of the punishment attached to them, you still love your sins and would certainly commit them over and over if there were no punishment. That is love of evil and is absolutely contrary to love of god. I am certain you will be with us in hell, and given that there is no reason to hesitate to write the words because whether you realize it or not you are absolutely willing to give your soul to Satan because you still love your sins themselves. Because I want everyone in hell my certainty you will burn with us pleases me no matter how it happens. But I would rather you burn with us as one like those of us who just openly admit we are willing to give Satan our soul; and whether you know it or not you would rather burn with us as a soulmate who owns who he really is, and that he loves evil, and therefore signs the pledge. Do not burn as a wimp who just lands there, but be one of the bold and defiant few like we are, and then burn in absolutely defiant eternal pride of being bold.

  247. “Estoy de acuerdo que a mi muerte el diablo puede tener mi alma por la condenación eterna”

    a cambio de que cierres tu blog XDD, 😛 y que me conviertan en el nuevo einsten 2010 :D:D acabar con la guerra :P, poder ser un gran seductor de mujeres que solo baste con decir su nombre en mi mente esa mujer debe ser mia :D:D:D…

    que loco XDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!

  248. I would never do souch thing as my soul is too much a prize and eternity to long a time. What on earth would ever be worth it?

  249. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.
    –Jon B

    Although, as a graduate student, I feel that I am in hell already and have been for several years.

    Also, as a resident of a state in an earthquake zone (California), I wonder if I will cause “the big one” with this pact.

  250. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”
    -Beat W

    There is a certain feeling of unease associated with that statement because I have been brainwashed as a child like almost everybody else.

    Oddly enough I don’t feel the same about the equivalent statement:
    “I agree that upon my death Voldemort can have my soul for eternal damnation”

  251. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    And, in saying that, I feel disproportionate sense of unease, given the negligible chance that any such entity actually exists. Still not gonna lose any sleep over it, mind.

  252. Devil still hasn’t come for my soul…

    I guess I’ll have to unload that other stuff on cragislist, now, too…!

    There’s nothing better than being an absolute atheist non-believer in a clutter-free home.

  253. Well as an Atheist, I would have to conclude it was some weirdo in a devil costume.. As for selling my soul, I obviously dont think I have one. However for the sake of the question, I will assume I have. As a child I learned that ‘Devil’ and ‘Satan’ mean ‘Liar’ or ‘Father of the lie’ In which case any pact would be highly suspect and I would therefore choose to keep my soul and take my chances elsewhere!

  254. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation, but in exchange I demand one six pack of Guinness beer a week until I’m dead.

    Yes, that’s a good agreement, I’ll be very confortable with the terms.

  255. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation,on one condition in exchange of power,money,fame,sex,long live,good health,and be among the richest men in the world,i there by huge father satan to grant my which in 30 days.

  256. I AGREE THAT UPON MY DEATH THE DEVIL CAN HAVE MY SOUL FOR ETERNAL DAMNATION,IN AGREEMENT THAT HE WILL GIVE ME POWER,FAME,SEX,GOOD HEALT,MONEY,LONG LIVE,AND BE AMONG THE RICHEST IN THE WORLD,MY WHICH GRANT IN 30 DAYS IF NOT CAUNTH ME OUT.

  257. Eu concordo que a minha morte, o demônio pode ter a minha alma para a perdição eterna”,,,,EM TROCA DE DINHEIRO MUITO DINHEIRO, RIQUEZA, FORTUNA,,,….como me sinto,,,, me sinto bem porque nesse mundo se vale o que se tem, e se voce nao tem nada nao vale nada, e quem sabe apos a morte eu tenha um melhor valor e ultilidade para o diabo,,, se ele me der isso que pedi dinheiro , fortuna ,, riqueza,, porque nao lhe dar algo em troca e justo…

  258. Since I am the Devil, I would like to thank you all for your small contributions. Rest assured that in all eternity, nothing gets any worse than it is right now.

    For those who have not yet given, rest assured that you probably already have.

  259. I, Zac, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.
    I, Zac, also agree that, at the devil’s sole determination, he may pause at any time during my infinite torment for refreshments.
    Finally I, Zac, agree that god and the devil may use my soul as a stand-in for all that is earthly and human, proceeding to thrash out that whole good-versus-evil thing once and for all. Gentlemen, start your engines of apocalypse…

  260. “I agree that upon death I will give my soul to a giant turtle called Charles who will tie my soul together with other souls to make a giant soul-rope and use that soul-rope to escape from the magical fortress that his arch-nemesis, Peter Pan’s babysitter, is keeping him captive in because the giant turtle didn’t pay rent when he landed on Mayfair even though he knew that Peter Pan’s babysitter takes Monopoly very, very seriously.”

  261. Well there is nothing called Devil in reality…………but yes there is a thought form behind this name in the Astral world created by billions of believers in this physical world…………..so when we summon or evoke this ” devil ” we are infact summoning this thoughtform which has now become a power and independent spirit of its own. Spirits , Demons do not take away your soul for exchange …………but yes they will require you to make some sort of sacrafice or offering to them…………….our soul cannot be detained by spirits as we all have the divine spark of God inside us and we will go back to the divine light from which we came from and this law cannot be changed. If you want further information on pacts then plzzz read the book Pacts with the Devil By Christopher Hyatt

  262. I, Bryce, agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    HELLO ALL, THIS IS THE DEVIL. I DECIDED TO TAKE BRYCE UP ON HIS OFFER, ALBEIT A LITTLE EARLIER THAN HE EXPECTED. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO COMMENTED HERE. I WILL ENJOY ALL OF YOUR SOULS VERY MUCH.

  263. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    I dont want to sound over confident, but at no point did that worry me, coz every fibre of my body repells that kind of supersititon…

  264. actually.. the devil cannot take any soul with him to hell.. it doesn’t have the power.. it doesn’t own the hell.. it burns together with the fire.. the devil can damn human like u damn your neighbor for kicking your dog.. but no… a devil cannot take souls..

  265. I will sell my soul to the devil if in exchange he saves all the beings suffering and in need of help in this universe for all eternity. I think this is a fair trade considering I have to suffer for all eternity.

  266. moi frederic beugnies Je suis d’accord que, sur ma mort le diable peut avoir mon âme à la damnation éternelle contre richesse sucesse et grandeur.

  267. No, I would not, because I wouldn’t want to sign my soul away to anyone for anything.

    When I was younger I used to consider accepting such a proposition if offered (to gain reward). But when I was younger I had a far less solid concept of how I’d experience time, regret, and various other aspects of life (and possibly afterlife). Then I also thought I could make some sort of agreement but I could still go to Heaven because God wouldn’t hold you to a pact you made with the Devil if you made it while really being faithful to God and otherwise Godly. At that point I think I was just really hoping I’d get to make a deal with the Devil and not have to pay for it.

    I don’t know that I believe in an actual Devil making pacts, but I like the mythology and wouldn’t want to be on the damned fool side of such a story. And as for not wanting to sign my soul away to anyone now, I figure I’m about a third through life, and it’s tolerable to good, so I may as well keep on and hope for the same or better rather than scramble to get something for nothing and possibly pay a stupidly high price.

  268. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my older sister’s soul for eternal damnation…..” i hope it works

  269. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my older sister’s soul for eternal damnation…..” i hope it works

  270. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    Should I write it down in my own language? The devil might want from me that I understand what I mean. Well, there it goes.

    In Basque, my language: Honen bitartez zin dagit, ni hiltzerakoan, deabruak nire arima har dezakeela, betiko kondenaziorako.

    And just in case the devil does not like regional or minority languages, I will even say it in Spanish: Por la presente convengo en ofrecer mi alma al diablo para que, cuando yo muera, la pueda tomar para mi condena eterna.

    I feel silly, I wish I had offered my soul to Scarlet Johanson for eternal whatever.

  271. Zgadzam się, że po mojej śmierci diabeł może mieć duszę na wieczne potępienie jeśli spełni wszystkie moje życzenia i marzenia i będe żyć 80 lat.

  272. I agree that upon my death, should I have a soul, the first devil (or other supernatural entity, good, evil, or otherwise) who wants my soul can have it for any purposes, including but not limited to eternal damnation.

    Furthermore, upon my death, any medical facility may have my body for the purposes of medical research and/or organ transplantation.

    (Ownership of my soul does not convey ownership of my collection of commemorative pez-dispensers or the contents thereof).

  273. I am an atheist but for some reason I am hesitant to make a pact with the devil. Even though this blog is probably not an eternally binding document I would be reluctant to do it because even though I can say with a large degree of certainty that there is no devil I can’t 100% rule it out. So I am forced to not make a pact in where today I may think is useless because there is no devil but if evidence came up[ in the future might show that there is in fact a devil.

  274. “Eu concordo que a minha morte, o diabo pode ter minha alma da danação eterna”

    Then describe how you feel doing that. Alternatively, say why you are not prepared to make the pact. Então descreva como você se sente fazendo isso. Alternativamente, diga porque você não está preparado para fazer o pacto.

  275. fuck you all.my soul is the most valuable thing on this earth.no worldly pleasure is worth it…fuck satan,fuck lucifer and fuck all you in here that have sell your soul,coz without realizing you have just turn your back on god.and its a pity how many of you have done it….may god bless you all

  276. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation.

    See, the devil is an imaginary christian product and according to the same christian theology I am already doomed anyway. Mark 3:29: “But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin”… this “blasphemy” is the rejection of salvation. Since I’m a de facto atheist, I’ve got nothing to loose. Besides, in my opinion, the more ethical thing to do is not to give in to blackmail of a vengeful, evil tyrant, even if that means eternal suffering.

  277. my name is silvestre and I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation. I want to do so becouse i am giving myself to the devil in return of many riches and true long for as long as I am on the earth

  278. Well, as everyone who read my posts knows by now, the devil did not, in fact, come for my soul… despite my every effort to sweeten the deal for him, asking nothing in return…

    Therefore, he doesn’t exist. And neither does a god. It’s all a lie, people. Imagine!

    Enjoy your summer! 😉

  279. I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation, Only when the devil grants me ten wishes. I don’t really care if it works or not I just don’t care. Ten wishes I want with out no tricks. Just perfect wishes I want. And just by writing it on a paper and one wish on every paper I use. So thats ten white papers I’ll write about my wishes. Detailed wishes I mean like this I write one detailed wish on one paper. Then another wish on another paper. The reason why I’m doing this is because there are alot of assholes calling the police on me and another psychic says I’ll die in the plane and burn in hell so I decided it didn’t matter if I repent and I’ll die if I don’t make the wishes just to keep my self alive for another 10 years. I don’t know if this is real what you are saying but the signs are really clear. The funny thing about the psychics calling the police is that every time they call the police on me they kept getting busy lines on the phone and they tried looking for the police in Kashechewan but couldn’t find any police. Another funny thing is that they know I live in Attawapiskat. I guess this is it for me if richard is saying is true.

  282. When you say “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation ”, do you need a circle or something like that to make it work??? Its really weird when I say it,.,. there’s probably something wrong why it doesn’t work to just anybody,.,.,

  283. You’re all stupid. There is a hell, and there is a devil. This is his game to make you think he’s not there, to follow nothing but your own desires and passions. He is man kinds open enemy, oh but if only you knew!

    If you are to proud to worship GOD, who created you out of a mere drop of sperm/egg, then well Hell is what you are going to get.

    When you are thrown in there, you will beg GOD to give you another chance, you will so much regret your pompous arrogant attitudes, but how will that benefit you then??

  284. Most people just don’t want to admit to the fact that they will be held accountable for their actions, people don’t like to believe this. Thus they deny GOD/afterlife. But you will be held accountable, take this as a reminder. You are being watched and judged constantly, the devil has no power over you if you don’t let him. He can merely whisper ideas to you, whisper suggestions to you in your own voice, he calls you and you follow.

    Purify yourselves, humble yourselves before GOD, don’t be too proud to worship the all mighty, full of glory and majesty.

  285. i would have to see satan appear before me in my room right now to belive that shit. I will do it if he comes to me in human form, you see this satan you want my soul you come to me and give me what i wish and you can have it

  286. Lucifer – yes (Christ was even called “Lucifer”), the enlightener/teacher
    Devil – no, dont believe there is one
    Satan – nope, that name means “the accuser”, why would i enter a pact with him lol
    Beelzebub – most likely means “the power of Ba‘al”, who was a pre-christain deity that was later demonized. Would i make i pact with him ? IDK enough about him.

  287. I’ll change it a bit: “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation, if he appears right now in front of me”. I’m waiting……….

    signed: Peter Tissenbaum Issler

    no lighting strike upon me yet, I guess I’ll fine.

  292. I do hereby agree to let Satan A.K.A the Devil, have my immortal soul and I will dedicate the rest of my life to Him, if and ONLY if he makes me a Mega-Millions jackpot winner on Nov. 16, 2010!

  293. hi richard wiseman, you have ask me time without number of wot i want,please if you have the linck help me out i wont sign apart with the devil satan hail satan,avesatanas.

  294. The selling of your immortal soul is a binding contract and properly executed contracts require the exchange of “consideration” by both parties in order to make them binding. I cannot “sell” my soul without receiving some form of consideration from the Devil (otherwise, I’m just GIVING it away – which I’m not about to do).

    I would want something VERY specific in return. Something that ~ONLY~ HE could give me…

    And, ohhhhhhh, would HE ever receive more than he bargained for!

    The terms of the bargain would be for HIM to transform me into a stunningly gorgeous, extremely feminine, and exceedingly lascivious young woman. My seductive talents would be nearly impossible to stave off, especially since HE would endow me with talents beyond compare in the carnal arts. Every man and woman would be tempted to taste my delights, with only the purest being capable of escaping my fiendish charms.

    My goal and HIS, of course, would be to tempt as many borderline souls away from the pearly gates and into my warm and waiting arms. I would be constantly motivated to seek more victims through HIS deviously addictive “gift” of achieving my own heightened orgasmic pleasure through the physical pleasure given to others. Those others being married men & women, and (most especially) members of the clergy.

    During our sexual escapades, I would entice my victims into performing blasphemous rituals and into denouncing HIS eternal rival. The pleasure that I provided and the free will that they exercised in succumbing to my gifts would serve to damn each of them.

    For isn’t humanity generally powerless against the temptations offered by PURE EVIL?

    It can be so deliciously seductive.

    I would seduce and fornicate with hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of these stupid willing sheep, over hundreds of years, until HE chose to take me and my soul to Hell. My reward for this dedicated service (per the terms of the binding contract), would to then be transformed into a demonic succubus …and the cycle would start over, with me tantalizing and destroying the souls of men (in their dreams) over the next countless millennia.

    Being an “over achiever” doesn’t even begin to describe the absolute LUST that I have to attain this and actualize it as a reality.

    I want this, SO MUCH!

    I’m waiting to be transported to the crossroads, for the lambskin contract, and the pen filled with my own blood…

  295. look here i am the ying yangs part hold body you are trying to steal souls, stop trying to use reverse psycology on people, i am not really anything but the key of life so do not mess with my brothers and sisters you low lies

  301. какво да направя за да подпиша този договор .. никой нищо не казва :@

  302. Only insane people who want worldly treasure would ever to make a pact with devil. My the Lord God guide they. Christ is the way, the truth and the LIFE. So why to may a stupid pact. Devils are our enemies, there’s no truth in every saying of a devil. 😀

  305. People discuss topics of subjects they heardly know anything about. They read books and come up with ideas that are rediculous, well, before one would make any pact with the devil, you have to know truely whom the devil is. Its not just to copy some pictures and write your name and you have signed the pact (smile=) what is this, kids play?
    Well want to know the devil? he is not that stupid like most people thinks. He is smart and knows those that have are really ready for him.

  306. Most of you people are either insane or naive. You guys make it seem like it’s no big deal to go to hell. Hell is the nastiest place you can ever go to, and you’ll have to stay there ETERNALLY. You should be peeing your pants and praying to God to save your Afterlives right now.

    If you don’t believe that the Devil exists and you just said it only as a joke, then I would reconsider your sanity.

    But if you believe in the existence of the Devil and sold your soul to him, then I guess it’s true for you… one can not know the severity of something until they themselves truly feel it at firsthand.

    I know the severity because it is written in the Holy Bible; I have faith in the word of God completely.

  307. I dont think devil can give us reward . just ask ur selfs who created the devil.

  313. Christians keep saying how the Devil’s greatest trick is to convince the world he doesnt’ exist.

    Seeing as how even atheists seem to think the Devil (but not God) exists, it seems that these Christians just yak whatever they feel like saying.

  325. please see this agreement of yours:
    “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation”

    now lets examin this:

    2) Devil’s promises are nothing but illusion:

    [The Noble Quran 4:120] He promises them and entices them; what the devil promises is no more than an illusion

    3) Even world’s best scientist could be totally hypnotized by devil:

    [The Noble Quran 29:38] Similarly, ‘Aad and Thamoud (were annihilated). This is made manifest to you through their ruins. The devil had adorned their works in their eyes, and had diverted them from the path, even though they had eyes.

    4) Devil also fears God almighty and he sees God’s Invisible Soldiers:

    [The Noble Quran 8:48] The devil had adorned their works in their eyes, and said, “You cannot be defeated by any people today,” and “I will be fighting along with you.” But as soon as the two armies faced each other, he turned back on his heels and fled, saying, “I disown you. I see what you do not see. I am afraid of God. God’s retribution is awesome.”

    5) Satan has no power to force us. He only can invite us to commit sinful deeds. Therefore we are responsible for our own bad/good works and not the devil:

    [The Noble Quran 14:22] And the devil will say, after the judgment had been issued, “God has promised you the truthful promise, and I promised you, but I broke my promise. I had no power over you; I simply invited you, and you accepted my invitation. Therefore, do not blame me, and blame only yourselves. My complaining cannot help you, nor can your complaining help me. I have disbelieved in your idolizing me. The transgressors have incurred a painful retribution.”

    6) Devil always interferes on righteous people’s works including prophets, messengers of God. But devil can not win over them:

    [The Noble Quran 22:52] We did not send before you any messenger, nor a prophet, without having the devil interfere in his wishes. God then nullifies what the devil has done. God perfects His revelations. God is Omniscient, Most Wise.

    7) [The Noble Quran 22:3] Among the people, there are those who argue about God without knowledge, and follow every rebellious devil.

  327. “I BMcG agree that upon the death of G,Mullen the devil can have his soul for eternal damnation in exchange for the ultimate sexual experiance”

  328. “I BMcg agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation in exchange for the ultimate sexual experiance. Regardles of wether i doubt or do not beleive in this enough or weather i have already sucsesfully done this before. It will inevitably happen 10 seconds after this blog is posted”

  329. “I bmcg agree that upon the death of George mullen and Suzzan hunter (longeridge) the devil can have their soul for eternal damnation in exchange for the use of more than 50% of my brain capasety to be super intelagent and be able to control it”

  330. I, who currently goes by the name of Katherine Hellayia in all but law, agree that upon my death the devil, Satan, can have my soul for eternal damnation or whatever use he or she sees fit, in return for my current demands which are carried in my current thoughts… i never know if i believe in the devil or not…. which is interesting- i am kinda spiritual but am definatly skeptic about some things. if the devil were real i think heaven would be too pretty anyways, so who cares.

  331. “I agree that upon my death the devil can have my soul for eternal damnation” he has always been kind to me….i made no deals with him…..and he asked nothing of me…..not terribly concerned about his version of eternal damnation for me….the story of the garden of eden is confusing to some, unfortunately……as is much of the bible….that which seems to be in contradiction to ones own view of god is often just cast out as a misinterpretation or the work of the devil…..instead of that of a father who is both benevolent as well as punisher depending upon our choices and our heart…..glorious god wipes out whole civilizations in the stories of the bible….a devil to them….savior to others….
