Do devil believers drain people of their blood?

I know it sounds weird, but my friend was talking to me about how unlucky her birthday was. Her birthday is October 27. she said that her mom told her a while ago around her birthday, some devil believers took a girl and drained of her blood

Funny, I was just reading up on this today..
"We DO NOT advocate or participate in any blood or living sacrifice. This act is Judeo/Christian, as stated in their Bible- Deuteronomy 12:27"

Hey, Moran. Another question, if you don't mind.

1,000 years from now, if people see videos of today and (in my opinion) see that we're the same now is they are in the future, not evolved any differently, what would evolutionists think?

Or 1,000,000 years or whatever...

We would be different in a hundred thousand years.
Just in the last 5,000-10,000 years we've seen a change in our ability to digest milk..

With our rapidly changing society, nothing really remains constant long enough for us to significantly adapt to it and nearly impossible for us to predict. I watched a video either today or yesterday talking about how it's likely our smallest toe is going to "go away" due to it's general uselessness.

That's interesting. Looks like I have alot of research to do. I already feel like I'm in college. :P

But my question is, in 100,000 years when people see videos of today and see that humans are the same (no evolution), what will evolutionists think? (I know you believe there will be an evolutionary difference but I'm just asking from my point of view.)
Report as
If there wasn't, we'd need to rethink some of the factors which go into long-term change. Although if you pulled a video from the future and I saw basically the same human, I wouldn't be terribly surprised. Selection pressures are almost nullified in modern times. For example, a child with down syndrome in America who couldn't support him/herself for more than a few days is significantly better off than a perfectly capable person born in the slums of India who dies in a day. But I think you'd agree we would look quite different that far into the future even with magically constant genes. We have a lot more capacity for interbreeding which should make a nice dent in our appearance. I think most of our future evolution will involve the brain more than anything.

-And probably things like our appendix which is already fading away. I only wish we could redesign humans ourselves and fix stupid problems like our eyes and such. Maybe one day we'll have that technology..
Report as
So you're saying we're basically almost finished evolving? Only like 500,000 years left? :P

What needs to be redesigned about our eyes?

If I were to believe in Evolution, that would be so cool to think that our brains are evolving. In so many years we would have new senses and such... IF I were to believe in Evolution. Lol.
Report as
You never "finish" evolving. There's only ways to speed up or slow down evolution. We aren't "more evolved" than, say, a Bonobo. The evolutionary process has no end goal in mind other than adapting as best as possible to the current environment. As for our brain evolving, I'm sure you know it has. Humans are wired to see patterns and anthropomorphize objects. It helped us a great deal when we weren't the top of the food chain. Something as simple as jumping when you hear a loud noise is an example.
Report as
What do you mean 'I know the brain has evolved'?
Report as
If you've studied Psychology or anything involving the mind or the brain itself, you should have ran into a few areas in which behavior or structure was explained by hunter-gatherer type societies. To bring in a broad example of structure similarities, just look at the brain of most mammals. It's all basically the same with ours being more developed in certain areas. Have you ever held a human brain in one hand and a rat brain in another? Eerily similar.

Moran, Evolution can be tied into any study. I just don't pay attention to those parts because I have personal experience with God and I know He created the universe. That's why I don't believe in Evolution. I know many people say "Evolution doesn't contradict Christianity" but I'm just not sure.

You're probably thinking I'm a selective listener, but I'm not -- I've personally heard God's voice and that's proof enough for me.
Report as
Are you sure which god it even was? Maybe that god is cool with evolution.
Report as
Well, when I asked him for something I referred to him as "God" (with the capital G) and I was meaning to speak to the Christian God, so knowing celestial beings, if it were a different god then he/she would let me know. I felt the love of God, not "god".
Report as
So you basically admitted nothin will ever change your mind? I feel like I'm talking to a wall.
Report as
You know me, Moran. I at least consider things. Have you been mentally active in our last 20,000 conversations? Lol.
Report as
Let me ask you something. If you were to see Bigfoot, clear as day, and then people started giving you articles and whatnot on why Bigfoot doesn't exist, what would you do?

If there were absolute proof against God than I would reconsider. But trust me, I've looked into many, many things, and even cleared my mind of my beliefs while doing so, and I went back to God.

I'd need more than a possible hallucination when all independently verifiable evidence points to the contrary.
Report as
With how many "hallucinations" I've had, I'd have to be anti-social (literally) and and diagnosed with something serious by now. I'm mentally healthy.

I hope I'm defined as a very considerate person. I've contemplated about everything all throughout my life and I now, after about 14 years of contemplation (including the immature years), I stand strong in Christianity, and yet I still listen to other points of view. You can't really ask me to do more than that, can you?
Report as
Hallucinations don't mean you're insane or dangerous. I'm not sure you comprehend the power our brains have over our senses. You don't see what you see. You see what you brain tells you that you see. If you've ever taken any heavy drugs, you'd know exactly what I mean. But don't even go that far. Just take anyone from any other religion who says the same thing about their gods. The drugs just make it easier.
Report as
I understand the power of the brain. You and I both study psychology and neuroscience. I guess I don't understand the definition of "hallucination". But I have more experience with God than just sensational (if that's a word) or emotional experience. I have "coincidental" experience with Him, too. I just had a good point in mind but I forgot it. Lol.
Report as
When I say hallucination I don't mean you're tripping out scratching invisible bugs off your skin. It could be as minor as hearing a knock from nothing or seeing a shirt as a slightly off-hue color for a short period of time. I also hope you know what "confirmation bias" is.
I also didn't mention what is wrong with our vertebrate eyes. The whole system is ass-backwards. Our receptors are stuck behind all the blood vessels and whatnot (we see out the back, not the front). Our eyes even have a blind spot near the middle of our vision! We have mechanisms to compensate, but it's hardly a design worthy of merit. Animals like squids, on the other hand, did it right.
Report as
I understand what a confirmation is and I understand what a bias is. What does it mean together?

You mean our visual receptors are actually faced inside our heads? If I understood correctly, does that mean that if anything were to cause one's vision flippers (:P) to shut off or get knocked out for good, they would see the inside of their head for the rest of their life?

I realize there's a blind spot, actually. I have those. I wonder if everyone does. They're in both eyes on either side.

Report as
Yeah we all have blind spots, although our brain is pretty good at making stuff up to fill the spot (usually the other eye covers it). It's caused by all those blood vessels needing a spot to come from so there's a gap in the receptors. And I'm not sure what you mean by seeing inside your head? Even if you'd somehow rotate the receptors around, it'd be against the muscle and whatnot (not to mention no lens). The nerves to those receptor would most likely be severed in the process.
Confirmation bias is when you count the hits and discredit the misses- even if the misses greatly outweigh those hits.
Report as
I see what confirmation bias is now... thank you for teaching me that term. But why do you bring the phrase here?

I wasn't making the scenario of turning the eyes backwards. Let me clarify things for myself: you mentioned a mechanism that makes us see outside of our head (literally)? and it has to be there because our actual visual receptors are inside our heads?
Report as
You said you had "coincidental evidence". Confirmation bias would probably be the biggest factor for that so I just wanted you to know what it was if you were going to elaborate.
And the receptors are in the eye, just the back.
Report as
I didn't say "coincidental evidence", and if I did, that's not what I meant. What I mean is I have had what *you* would call coincidences with prayer, but what I call answers.
Report as
Confirmation bias still heavily applies. Count the unanswered prayers than counted the answered ones. Which ones are more? Then judge which ones you think just occurred because of chance. Lastly, pick at least a week to prayer to a rock you find in your yard and see what difference there is. This is a testable claim and has had numerous studies done as you could imagine.
Report as
I won't pray to a rock.

Moran, I very well know what confirmation bias is, I just didn't know it had a name. I've done so many tests like this (not including praying to a rock) and listened to so many people prove God to be non-existent. I haven't found one reason not to believe in Him and I have found a few small reasons to believe.

I counted my prayers. Most are still pending or unknown (because the event isn't in my life) but the ones that affect my current life have come out positive so far. Any way, though, you should know that we Christians believe God leaves some prayers unanswered for reasons.

That's only a tiny drop in the bucket of what satanist get up to and that would be one of the nicer ones that i've heard. Google satanic rituals and you will see how messed up some people can be, it's pretty scary and defiling and I ended up shutting down a page once I read about half of it I couldn't handle it and I don't dare post it here, just make sure you have a strong stomach if your going to look

I've never actually heard about anyone performing a satanic ritual (no reading Dante's Inferno out loud doesn't count) but I've never really doubted it happens. However I always imagine satanic rituals a little more gruesome than draining blood.

The only one I know of that involves blood is the one where you dedicate your soul to Satan. You end up signing your name in your own blood.

No. I have a best friend who is one, and he wouldn't hurt a fly. Let alone drain someone of blood. And most of what you hear about "Devil Worshippers" is Christianity twisting everything so their enemies look evil. Although there are crazed lunatics everywhere.
