Satan, Hell, and the Paranormal

Richelle Hawks has a good piece on Binnall of America for her Medusa's Ladder column: Get Thee Hence, Satan. Why do books with "hell" in the title sell, why do people still want to believe in the hell tripe -- even after being debunked -- and why does Richelle get so annoyed at the satan/devil/demon beliefs and interpretations in the paranormal world? Read it and find out.

By the way, I freely admit that her column was the inspiration for my Trickster's Realm column, which should be up sometime Monday. (How's that for a plug?) I was going to write about MUFON's take on the Stehpenville UFOs, but I just wasn't that jazzed about it.

Thanks for mentioning my column, and I'm excited to read yours now. I've been traveling this last week and I've missed much. Going to read it now...
