Question by danman: How has the bible’s Satan been used to turn the minds of Christians into mystic fear and confusion?
How has the figure Satan provided an easy excuse to ignore history, facts, and sound reasoned thinking?
As long as religious leaders promote his (Satan’s) existence are they not just simply saving their jobs?
When will Christians rely on the evidence and not superstitious legend?
A bogeyman (also spelt bogieman, boogeyman or boogieman) is a monstrous imaginary figure used in threatening children. This legendary monster has no specific appearance, and conceptions of the monster can vary drastically even from household to household within the same community; in many cases, he simply has no set appearance in the mind of a child, but is just an amorphous embodiment of terror. Bogeyman can be used metaphorically to denote a person or thing of which someone has an irrational fear. Parents often say that if their child is naughty, the bogeyman will get them, in an effort to make them behave.
People put the concept of the Devil to use in social and political conflicts, claiming that their opponents are influenced by the Devil or even willingly supporting the Devil. The Devil has also been used to explain why others hold beliefs that are considered to be false and ungodly.
The Book of the Dead refers to Seth as the “Lord of the northern sky”, responsible for clouds and storms.
Seth fighting Apophis
Her-Uben B Papyrus, 21st dynasty

The souls of ordinary deceased Egyptians where sometimes seized by him, but Seth protected Re against the serpent Apophis on his nightly voyage through the underworld. Later he was – strangely – identified with this enemy of his.
Throughout history Seth’s reputation grew steadily worse, until he became Seth, the abominable. In the Book of victory over Seth the god is expelled from Egypt. Magic is invoked against him, his effigy is burned, and he is delivered to the Devourer. Even his mother Nut is driven to repudiate her son:
“Is there a mother who consumes her child?
Is there a woman who draws her knife against him who emerged from her?”
I have opened (my) mouth in order to eat,
I have drawn (my) knife in order to commit slaughter
against that wretched Seth and his following,
(against him) who was not mild, who grasped in evil
against the eldest of my body, of mild manners,
who emerged with the royal serpent on his head from (my) body,
who was crowned before he was born,
(against him) who created evil against the body cleaver,
who was hard hearted against the benefactor,
who brought about unequalled crimes.
