Sometimes I wonder if we're going down a slippery slope of trying to determine the gender of the Supreme Being.
We've already gone down the slope since the big 3 [religions] were co-opted and colonized by the thoughs bent on controlling the masses. Symbolism was the rave back then. The meaning is far greater than merely what's between an individual's legs.
As for satan, well, I've heard it said the god is devil in reverse. I heard that and instantly the thought about the yin and the yang. Even still, I interpret it to personify "balance" in nature and in the universe which I dig as well.
With all that said this wouldn't be a big issue if throughout history, and presently, folks wouldn't try to impose and force their god-concept onto others who were doing quite well with their own brand of belief.
We are [in the present] witnessing a spiritual withdraw/side effect from all the religious/spiritual force feeding that has taken place for a couple of a thousand years, at least.
