Conversion starters

Were I the sort of person interested in conversion, I'd probably start by asking them what religion they currently observe. As an atheist, I expect some conversions would be easier than others, and I'd want to pick the low hanging fruit first, like Pastafarians.

I was thinking more along the lines of metric conversion. 

I forget, are the Pastafarians the ones who worship the FSM?

I prefer typecasts.

How did I know that just by the title of this thread, that at the end was a big old red Stop Sign

Because I'm nefarious, and my unavoidable example has your subconscious now suspecting that free will is an illusion.

Careful there, Wulfie. The next step is stereotypecasting.

I miss the days of monauraltypecasting, you had to kiss a lot of folks to get mono.

OK so there is a topic about lines what you hate. But what about the lines you like to read when somebody say hi to you?

The best line that worked on me:  

A woman came up to me and said something in spanish.  I responded "No hablo Espanol, do you speak English?".    She then said "Come with me, we will do things."

"Hey you, with the naked boobages. Wanna dance with me?" -- Classic line by my now-boyfriend.

I enjoy all sorts of witty first messages, but he clearly took the cake.

What should be the next one after heey?

some nice opening lines:

"Good day, milady"

"Excuse me, may I take your picture?" 

"If you hear some strange singing, it's just me..."

   For me, it's very easy to tell whether a person prods me because they want to be pixel bumped or if they've read my profile and found anything interesting. Mainly because my profile's contents currently only really bring up photography and satanism - unfortunately I haven't yet been told that 'Jesus loves me' or anything such ... 

   If it's in general chat, I'm usually not one to start or keep up with conversation at all. Mention shoes and I'll be semi-afk for at least half an hour before peeking in to see if the conversation has gotten endurable yet. 

Jesus loves you!

Shoes!

   Depends on how you mean I'd have 'tried' it. I've met men, I've spent a great deal of time with some, made emotional connections, shared laughs, tears and hugs - but I never got aroused by a man. Maybe I just didn't find the right one yet? 

   As for Satan, his gender is basically whichever gender you are as he's a metaphysical representation of your own potential in modern satanism. The mythological figure in Christian folklore is male, and it's his actions that inspired the ideal of a liberated mind that is the goal of the philosophy. Many manifestations of the ideal entity are hermaphrodites, Baphomet being one of the most popular ones as his seal (the inverted pentagram with a goat's head) is the insignia of both the Church of Satan and The Satanic Temple; sometimes he is depicted with one or two female breasts. How much of this is actual philosophical allegory and how much of it is The Satanic Temple being outspoken left-wing political activists with a strong drive for feminism and LGBT rights, is sometimes a bit hard to tell. Also, some people tend to confuse Baphomet with Slaanesh - who... Is a Chaos god in the Warhammer universe. Even among satanists, there are less bright bulbs.

Satan is a guy, a man of wealth and taste.

Baphomet

I think I read somewhere that Baphomet actually came from crusading times in the middle east, and was originated from Mohammed. To late to google now, bed time for me!

   Satan in christian folklore, which is the character the song is about, is indeed male. 

   Baphomet as a word is derived from 'Bafumarias', which is what Raymond of Augliers called the mosques of the holy land in his chronicles of the first crusade. So when the Knights Templar were accused of serving Baphomet, it was a way of calling them heretics. This sparked the deification of Baphomet within various occult societies. That's as far as I know, at least - I don't know if Raymond called them 'Bafumarias' for any specific reason. I've read a lot about the first crusade as I find it a very interesting historical topic, but as with much military history in general, people write about the generals and leaders, influencers important to the plot, the battles, the battle technology, the political intrigue, and a whole lot of suggestions of ways of how the events of the first crusade came to change further events, brought various technologies from one part of the world to another, and so forth - I've yet to find any essays on 'How Baphomet snuck into Catholic Europe in the baggage of the returning 11th century crusaders and laid the seeds for 20th century anti-theism'. Darn, that'd be a slow burn for the papacy for sticking their knights where they didn't belong - perhaps not as magnetic a video as all those 'instant karma' ones. Bring popcorn!
