Satans image seen on Turtle that survived the fire

<<hell. He can spot lips, eyes, a goatee, shoulders and a pair of pointy horns on Lucky&#8217;s back.>>>

However, this may go some way to explain it.

<<Dora has produced a D-V-D of the turtle&#8217;s story that he plans to auction on the Internet. He will also offer the winning bidder the chance to buy Lucky off-line>>

May times, i see spelling errors in my post. I apologize for the superfluous "the" before "Fire" in the title

That's not satan, that's baphomet.

Yeah, but 'pagan god of sex, drugs and rock and roll' pretty much equals satan in christian terms.

Some say that what christians think of as the devil is a construct made from various pagan 'party gods' in order to scare people away from them. I think theres even a certain amount of proof.

Must have been fun to live in a culture where the word of god was "Go forth and fornicate". Damn, I'm getting religious just thinking about it.

The origin of the I Ching divination method is supposed by some to be the result of counting cracks in tortoiseshell after its been in a fire.

Personally, I think the "image" looks more like a donkey head than a devil...

Speaking of devils, the book of Revelations has a bunch of descriptions about various creatures of heaven. Reading some of those descriptions (and he had 7 horns and 7 eyes, etc.), it occurred to me that if people saw them, they would think of devils and creatures of hell. When religous pictures are drawn, the creatures of hell are hedeous, and the creatures of heaven are beautiful (which doesn't allign with the bible).

So, maybe its really a picture of an angel that saved Lucky's life?

Well, Moses had horns, allegedly, though actually it was just a translation error.

Sometimes, a turtle is just a turtle (to paraphrase Freud).

It's not news. It's christian propaganda and an advertizement.

Sheesh.
