    Why are people so facsinated with the Devil?

    I post a hub called "The Devil is a Joke" and the page views are off the charts. I post a hub called "Lifestile of Revival" and not even half as much interest.

    It is because most people revere the devil as a type of god.  Sadly, the Devil is the god of this world, and rules it through deceit and trickery.  Of course his servants, willing or not are going to be fascinated by him.

    Sons and daughters of God must learn all the Devil's tricks.  This is not to give him power, but as he is the most cunning beast of all he has a lot of tricks up his sleeve.

    Because the very thought that there is some "power" that causes nothing but human suffering scares people.  usually what scares people intrigues them.

    because the concept of "devil" is easy.  it's easier to believe there is some power causing our grief than to study ourselves and realize we have failed in our attempts to be God-like.  it's easier to blame than to work on ourselves.

    The devil is a manifestation of the human condition. People a fascinated by the devil for the same reson people hold their breath when they hear the screeching of a car slamming on the breaks. Like the opposites of a magnet, they have a morbid fasination with negative things.
