I read Paradise Lost by John Milton, and I have to say the devil has a much more humanistic argument.
"Better to reign in hell then serve in heaven" and all.
God seems a bit standoff-ish, maybe nice to work for, but you wouldn't want to hang out with him at a party.
If we're talking about fictional characters though Batman is actually cooler than either.
It's part of a large quote from "Paradise Lost"
The first half is Satan's explanation for his rebellion against god, the second god's justification of hell. It was written at a time when heretics were still burned at the stake by the church. John Milton bravely wrote it, and the second half saved his skin. But it is generally accepted today that it is written in such a way that Satan wins the particular debate.
The full quote from that stanza is the devil explaining to his fallen angel Beelzebub why he is happy with his decision to rebel in spite of it leading them to expulsion in hell (this is from memory so it may be a little off)
Is this the region, this the soil, the clime, said then the lost Archangel, this the seat that we must change for heaven this mournful gloom for the celestial light? Be it so, since he who now is sovereign can dispose and bid what shall be right.
farthest from him is best whom reason hath equaled, force hath made supreme above his equals.
Farewell happy fields where joy for ever dwells. Hail (hello) horrors, hail (hello) infernal world, and thou profoundest hell receive thy new possessor, one who brings a mind not to be changed by place or time.
The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.
What matter where if I be still the same, and what I should be, all but less than he whom thunder hath made greater? Here at least we shall be free.
The almighty hath not built here for his envy, will not drive us hence. Here we may reign secure, and in my choice. To reign is worth ambition though in Hell. Better to reign in hell , than serve in heaven.
Beautiful really. A correlation can be made between the devil's speach and even the American Revolution.
"Give me liberty, or give me death" holds much the same tone, and you can be positive every founding father read "Paradise Lost" at least once.
I say humanistic, because it is a human characteristic to choose living free under harsh circumstance rather than live comfortably yet under one's thumb.
If Satan is a malicious devil, I think God is even worse than Satan. He's the one who created humans, yet he loves sending pain and sadness to human, and use "love" as an excuse that he must test whether humans are good enough. And the worst of all is that he's being unfair to human that some human live quite a luxurious life while others are living terrible life.
BTW, Satanism is more artistic than Christianity ^^

Please Please Satan is way cooler. I mean of all Angels he was the only one with the balls to say, Hey God what you created is a piece of shit look you freak, they're killing each other, wars, disease, arrogance, ignorance dude they're pathetic. and He accepts people as they are he even cares for us making us to admit our sins and regret them. He killed less people than God. plus He looks Cooler. naaah Satan FTW God sucks Satan rules
Please, Satan is nothing more then a whiny bitch that thinks rebelling is cool.
God on the other hand comes across as this righteous bad ass who is not afraid to kick ass when need be. Don't believe me? Then count in the Bible all the people that God killed and compare then to all the people that Satan killed and tell me who has killed more.
Though John Milton convinced me Satan was cooler, and so I posted on the other side.
I have to say when I watched "Lucy the Devil's Daughter" - a cartoon that used to be on Adult Swim, Jesus was this cool DJ guy.
Granted it's not the Christian type god, but that guy seemed cool. Satan was cool also in the cartoon, but more of a funny cool, and Jesus was like cool cool.
Still though, of the fictional characters Batman is the coolest.
If this picture is any indication..., then...
Plus think about all the shit he endured when he was here last. When he comes back, yo all, he's gonna be so mo-fo pissed and he's gonna kick ass and take names... the names of the people who voted on <-- that side ;)
