    Yes, I know it's crazy, but look at it: Rand is Jesus, The Prophet dies, and such. more supporting evidence would be appreciated, but I have more.

    I don't think this is really true, I think you been reading too much Wiki :p

    If you want I can help: All the Forsaken names are Synonyms of Satan, including Shai'tan

    oh, please. Some of the names, such as Ishamael and Shai'tan, are indeed based from biblical names, but with NO relevency to an analogy of any sort.

    I think a reason Shai'tan is named such is for us to relate easily to the "Dark One" and for him to seem familiar, etc.

    Well...Shai'tan is devil in Arabic/one of those languages. So it just sort of helps to reinforce the idea that the DO is evil.

    Yeah...but that's a long shot from the original "deranged version of Bible" theory. The Forsaken have a lot of other parallels too.

    I think you misunderstood. I'm just saying that such a name is used to sound cool as well as mean that the DO is evil, and not have any specific link to the bible.
