    2 - The evil doer and the evil doer in the authorities, both:
    P - Paranormal
    A - Abnormal
    C - Criminal

    If you don't believe this is your enemy, then who is?

    Being hypocritical and not practicing what you preach.
    Not having the convictions and belief in your own self to stand alone. I am not sure what you are asking here or why.
    Explain, please.

    is itself. more specifically, its own fanaticism.

    the anti-god of every belief, are its own fanatics. those who use belief as an excuse to cause suffering and harm.
    there is no belief of which this is any exception at all.

    as for my enemy, that is a slightly separate question. i call no one and no thing enemy, unless it chooses to so identify itself,
    or is some form of aggressiveness (such as bigotry, belligerence, greed, and so on)

    these i consider enemies of more then belief or myself, but of all of existence, or at least of all good will among all of existence.

    i don't believe in 'dark side gods', demons, devils, any of that.

    consideration IS morality, aggressiveness IS evil, and gods, are something big, friendly (or at least mostly harmless), and invisible,
    that no one knows anything directly about, though we can observe, that nothing needs to be infallible, micro-manage,
    be at war with anything, nor have the slightest desire to be feared.

    the real universe of course, will permit you to believe or disbelieve anything you might wish.
    these are however, what i believe.

    there is one thing it will do though, and it isn't a punishment as such, nor dependent on any self conscious will,
    and that is, what you screw up for someone else, you screw up for everyone, yourself included.
    this is an entirely autonomous function, totally impersonal, and not relying on the intervention of anything.
    its also statistical and frequently not instantaneous or obvious.
    but an advantage gained by disadvantaging others, seldom brings any kind of real happiness.

    Ummmm... His name is Odin.

    Oden is a Japanese winter dish consisting of several ingredients such as boiled eggs, daikon, konjac, and processed fishcakes stewed in a light, soy-flavored dashi broth.

    Of course you could bow to Japanese food, but I don't know why.

    They were originally taken over by a radical warlike Roman Catholic church... Convert or die were their only choices.
