    Default Caution: Satanist

    Im mostly just curious as to how many other LaVey Satanists there are on these forms. And how long you have been following the philosophy.

    And for those of you who have not looked into it at all, please hold off the witch hunt until after lunch. Im not talking about demon worship or summoning satan or curses.

    LaVey Satanism is a philosophy based on the celebration of humans as animals and our animalistic instincts, and a rejection of any social structure that denies or limits our instincts and rights to them.

    Once again I would just like to hear from others as myself, for ive met very few.

    I think you'll find that nobody's interested in witch-hunting you here. I'm a Christian (although certain fundamentalists would argue that fact) and I'm not fazed by your satanism in the least.

    Your Pinhead avatar, now, that creeps me out a bit.

    Despite the fact I don't object to much of the philosophy, and I score pretty high for Satanism on the "What Religion Are You?" tests - I cannot get past the name.

    The fact that LaVey named it Satanism will forever seem childish. It might impress me when I was 13, not so much anymore.

    LeVeyan Satanism makes a good bit of sense, and while I am not an official observer, I can't say there's any tenet I do not follow in it.

    In a nutshell Satanism insists on the spiritual promotion of the self. This is diametrically opposed to Buddhism and Christianity who insist on self-abnegation, the surrender of the self to a higher power. They argue that all evil (conventional Buddhist theologies directly, and many Christian theologies implicitly) stems from selfishness, yet they could demonize the Satanists along that path saying that because they are all about making you selfish, they are servants of Satan in the strictest sense of the word. Follow their philosophy: get as evil as you could possibly be. Isnt this what you could expect for Satanism to do to you? LaVey's ethics failed to wash off the fiendish stigma of Satanism in that respect.-

    Wouldn't say that.

    I believe a sufficiently bright, but unrepentantly self serving person is very difficult to tell apart from a "selfless" person. I don't have every skill in the world, and you may have what I need, I will be good to you. It doesn't bring me any pleasure to make the world more disgusting-looking, I do not litter.

    I certainly do not cheat or steal. I am not bright enough to get away with it, and I respect your property.

    It's not particularly warm and fuzzy, but I wouldn't call it "evil," except maybe in the sense that not doing what's expected of you is "evil."

    It sounds interesting. Humans have instincts to be warm and fuzzy and friendly too. I've been feeling a little restricted lately.

    Well im not sure if you ever realised but the name and the fact that Satan was used as a figure head was meant to be a mockery of Judeo Christian philosophy in itself.

    It was literally meant to piss of Christians because he knew, like lambs to slaughter they would follow the bait.

    Well chyeah. It's kinda "I know you are but what am I!"-ish. There's nothing impressive about shocking little old ladies who go to church twice a week.

    The quality of the people you take on speaks volumes about who you are. Shocking conservative Christians? Laaaaame.
