It turns out, the common description of Satan, with horns and a pitchfork and all that, doesn’t actually come from the Bible. In fact, “he’s just a disembodied ghost-voice, kind of like a really evil Obi-Wan Kenobi.”
STAR WARS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS AT ALL. STAR WARS DOES NOT NEED TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS AT ALL.
Ok and to make matters worse, the comparison doesn’t even make any fucking sense. For one thing, Obi-Wan is alive during 4 or 5 of the Star Wars movies. Furthermore, (and I’m forced to guess based on pictures given in the Cracked article because I am mildly normal and not obsessed with Star Wars), it looks like, when Obi-Wan appears in the movies after his death, HE’S STILL NOT DISEMBODIED. He appears as a ghostlike slightly transparent memory thing, but he definitely has a body.

Guys, I’m all out of quotes, except for the one that I used for the title (Edgar Allan Poe). Actually I’m just really lazy, umm if I get enough feedback from people who want me to continue this feature, then I might continue, otherwise sayonara (also my biggest idol just discontinued his feature and I don’t know how to go on doing my feature anymore, even though it required little if any effort at all). Also I’m too silly of a person to keep doing serious quotes, so maybe I’ll change the format and make the quotes funnier? But probably not. Instead of reading what people have said, my suggestion to you, the reader, is to go out and say things yourself, so that you won’t have to rely on others who are mostly dead for inspiration and you can find it in your own life wherefore it more directly applies to thou… I mean you. So I lied… here is my last quote:
– Michael Stamm
“If you don’t trust your abilities, nobody else will”
Again sorry about the lateness.
“I came to the conclusion long ago … that all religions were true and also that all had some error in them, and whilst I hold by my own, I should hold others as dear as Hinduism. So we can only pray, if we are Hindus, not that a Christian should become a Hindu … But our innermost prayer should be a Hindu should be a better Hindu, a Muslim a better Muslim, a Christian a better Christian.”
– Mohandas Gandhi
“Unfaithfulness in the keeping of an appointment is an act of clear dishonesty. You may as well borrow a person’s money as his time.”
– Horace Mann
“When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will finally know peace”
– Jimi Hendrix
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
