The Aheist Satanist
I have often heard some theists claim that atheists work for the devil.

I was wondering , when you say Satanism what do you imagine ?
Do you think of some drunk teens listening to metal ? Do you envision a small cult that beheads chickens ? Do you think of LaVey ?

Also , how many of you actually read LaVey's Satanic Bible ?

I'm curios about this one. Are we "evil" ? Rolleyes

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

Proud of my genetic relatives Big Grin

RE: The Aheist Satanist
If I am working for Satan, I want my check.

Metal music is music...weak minds fall prey to all sorts of things...so far my metal days haven't caused me any problems. In fact, sometimes I still think it's great driving music.

I read the Satanic Bible when I was in my early 20s...I wasn't all that impressed but it was a step along the way of reading everything I could find about all kinds of beliefs.

Atheist does not equal Satanist...cripes.

RE: The Aheist Satanist
I can't imagine why someone would choose to worship Satan. If you believe in Satan then you must believe in heaven and God. If you believe in those things then why in the hell (pun) would you pick Satan?


Other than the amusing Mark Twain quote.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect.”

I knew a person on another website who worshipped Satan, because -I may not remember well, he had helped them threw hardships Jesus neglected to help him for.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.
Bury me with my guns on, so when I'm cast out of the sky, I can shoot the devil right between the eyes.

Having come from a deeply religious family... and having gone to a Christian school when I was a teenager... I can tell you that the way that a lot of Christians see satanism vs the way that someone who has read up on satanism knows it is totally different. At least from my experience.

How it was portrayed to us in Christian school:

EVERYTHING IS EVIL if it isn't of God! Burn your cds, burn evil books, get rid of ANYTHING that isn't holy! Live purely! Anyone who isn't is evil and a satan worshipper, they just don't know it! And SATAN WORSHIPPERS (speaking of actual satanists) are the most evil people on earth, they sacrifice goats, do horrible things behind closed doors and want the world to be destroyed!

How it appeared to me after looking up Satanism when I was a teenager:

Cares more about general truths, seeking info, worries more about actual existence and what is rather than what isn't, thinks people deserve recognition if they deserve it rather than just because... etc etc... I went... "What? Well that's not what I expected."

If you're curious
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Satanic_Bible#p

I've even ran across an old friend from high school who was in town to visit and it turns out he practices Satanism. He never came across to me as a goat sacrificing guy who wanted to destroy everything who had a horribly depressed demeanor who was drained of life and hating life (as most Christians seem to portray them anyway).

Metal music was discouraged unless it was "Christian Metal" - We were encouraged in school to burn our cds, our bad books and things that were influencing. Funny how that works... don't they do the same thing in cults? Kill all outside influence, lock yourself into your own little world, don't listen to anything, reject anything exterior whilst rocking back and forth in the fetal position in denial?

It wasn't until after that, I stopped going to church and some years later ended up looking into more churches after I moved out looking for denominations that didn't seem insane to me. For a long time, actually, I found one church that seemed pretty cool, the people were nice, fairly open minded and you could actually hold an intelligent conversation with some of the people without feeling like you'd get your face stomped on for disagreeing with something. Can't say the same for the same places I put up with when I was a teenager. But that was another town, another place, another time, another community. They're not all the same.

That's only one of the many branches. If you get really deep into it you will see, it is branched like all religions.
Many colors, many ways of living it, of celabrating it, of seeing the philosophy behind it, and even the dangerous cults and sects.

Just as I wrote on the other topic (today somewhere here), it's as crazy and confusing as all relgions are.

RE: The Aheist Satanist
Well .. Think of it this way...... According to the bible as it is written and if you were to take it as factual truth..

God has killed BILLIONS of people throughout history..

Satan.... ... Job's family?.. which was sanctioned by God? And if I remember right I think Satan was responsible for maybe 2 others deaths as well....

My question is... who is the real evil figure?? God or Satan?

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. -- Voltaire

I was having this discussion with a guy,and what he technically said is ''The less you believe in him the more he's controlling you''
I may have heard a lot of idiocy but this is tremendously dumb.

The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism.
