Dumbass, besides all the idiocy in this entire chart, you said that Adolf Hitler was a disciple of Lucifer??!!!!! He was a Fucking Christian, You RETARD! Some of his beliefs and actions were brought about by extremist following of the Bible, as in word for word and taking it to another level. Judas, was not a disciple of Lucifer, he was in fact a disciple of Jesus Christ. He fell for greed, and fell into a trap of sin. This is done by all people according to those of Christian faith. It's our nature. JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE HAD DONE SOMETHING WRONG, TERRIBLE, HORRIFIC EVEN, DOESN'T MAKE THEM A DISCIPLE OR FOLLOWER OF LUCIFER.

What does Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, and Hinduism have to do with Satan or Lucifer?!? They don't believe that Yahweh, Satan, or Lucifer even exist! Also I don't think disciples of the devil should be on this since u can't prove that any of them actually were (unless they said so) and two of them didn't believe in the devil. Stalin was an atheist and the pharaoh (which ever one you're referring to since you ignored the fact that there were many pharaohs) never even knew of his existence!
