The upside down cross is called St. Peter's Cross because when Peter was going to be crucified by the Romans he requested that they do it upside down because he felt he did not deserve to die in the same manner as Jesus.

The same goes for St Andrew. But he got crucified in the way of an ''x'' sort of. The flag of scotland is also known as the St Andrews Cross.

The disciples got some really rough ends. One of them (Bartholomew) was flayed alive (skinned) and then beheaded. I had a National Geographic that followed each of their travels and then how each died (only one died peacefully).

don't you think it's a bit weird that these people, who actually met jesus, would die for him after he died? perhaps they saw enough compelling evidence to "convert" to christianity... even though... conversion wasn't really a thing back then..

That's why I've always found it stupid that people think that there's no way, no chance that it might be true. They had their wives dragged away to be executed, they themselves were tortured, executed in brutal fashions, etc.

If it was a con, they'd probably not go through all that. Also they'd probably try and make money.

The gospels were all written many decades after the alleged fact and not by the disciples. The bible is so riddles with historical inaccuracies and internal contradictions that to take it as a factual document is simply wrong.

No. Go to wikipedia and begin your research, the gospels were not written by the disciples of Yashua.

You are stating that none of them were and I stated that several were. You are trying to make a sweeping generalization off of a Wikipedia article you read. Nearly the entire New Testament came from the disciples and you don't know what you are talking about. We took a look into koine Greek text in my colligiate Greek class.

Yeah, but most people who commit crimes don't actually think they will be caught. Here's an excellent talk about the death penalty by Jeremy Irons on that subject:

first of all, closing my eyes and pretending that it was Scar talking made that more enjoyable.

Second of all, he makes a very good point untill i remember people like Anders Bering Breivik who killed 67-ish people in Norway. No one can convince me that he deserves to live.

I guess it's a matter of principle and beliefs. I don't think it's up to anyone to order the execution of anyone else unless they absolutely, undoubtedly still pose a threat to people. Death is so final.

Exactly, it's final. It was final for the 67ish people he killed. I don't think necessarily all people who kill should be killed, but under certain circumstances..

But why? It won't bring the victims back. It won't discourage other serial killers or mass-murderers. The consequences don't matter to them. Killing ABB would have made him a martyr, which would only have served to benefit the far-right agenda.

Because it would bring closure for some people, I'm sure. I just think after a certain point, I would accept the death penalty. I don't think we'll agree on this and understand that I respect your opinion.

And then i would feel obliged to say that there's a difference between LaVeyan satanism and whatever pretentious something that those ***** call satanism (they don't even know LaVey nor that Pretentiousness is a satanic sin), and say that while i do not in any call myself or follow LaVeyan, i still harbor some respect for his thoughts and avoid the sins he stated.

Subjective meanings have been applied making it that which opposes Christianity, as the equal symbol is to homosexual marriage and the equal symbol with a dash symbolizes biblical marriage. While it is true that this does not make it a satanic cross, in our eyes it is still an anti-religious symbols. Symbols become subjects of subjectivity, as seen in the OBEY street art, or various internet memes such as Doge. This can be tracked as far back as infant and children age groups where the child see's an object or living animal as good or bad, and then associates ideas with them. "The cookie is good" or "The knife is bad". Such trends carry over in larger magnitudes as the human brain becomes more sophisticated and mature. In conclusion, the satanic cross could be either of these two, as either coined their rightful meanings the same as they have coined their improper meanings.
