    Haven't seen many aside from a few LaVeyan Satanists in college. Their beliefs weren't anything too far out there compared to other religions' or common moral philosophy collections. What I do find a little strange is why all the stereotypical goth kids in say high school seem to try to pick up the stuff. Is it rebellion in name or do some of the beliefs and what not speak to them?

    I never got this using Satanism as rebellion stuff but then again religion as a whole confuses me.

    Yeah, that's what I find funny. It's not very rebellious if they enslave themselves to the same symbols.

    I knew a Satanist once ala The Church of Satan and...I dunno, the whole thing just seem really superfluous to me. Rebelling against God, fine, whatever, but what the hell(no pun) is the deal with all the black cloths and the rituals and shit? Is this really necessary?

    They just strike me as being the goth kids of the neo-pagan world. It's stupid.

    I kind of feel out of place around any rituals and people wearing robes and such. Black robes or not.

    Apparently they think imitating the Benedictines makes them such bad-asses.

    I don't understand. Is the afterlife set up the same way as heaven- except in hell? The evilest people get the "highest positions" and therefore- whatever? I imagine there are Satan worshippers who have thought a great deal about this. Will need to have a wiki-scapade on the topic later. I fail to understand these concepts on my own.

    If these people are in fact followers of Satan and not just plain old atheists, there will be a lot of considerations.

    Satan tends to emphasize that the earth is good. Most of his interactions with humans (and Jesus) are him arguing that life on earth is something to embrace.

    Okay, that makes sense. And after that? You just continue living on Earth as a ghost or reincarnated? Kind of like a hell in it's own way, but shed in a good light because it's still just living?

    (checking out churchofsatan.com- they are all dressed in Halloween costumes on the front page.. I wonder if I'm in the right place.....)
