Greetings Andrei, and welcome. (Although I am not sure if it is proper etiquette for me to welcome you however, since I am not the owner of this website, so I may be over stepping my bounds a bit here).

There is something about your theory, from what I see of it, in your introduction, that is puzzling to me.
Although, granted, you do state that you follow your own version of Satanism. Not your exact words, but that’s how I interpret them.

What I don’t understand is, if you follow a Leninist/Marxist view, which to the best of my understanding is based on the betterment and benefit of the “collective” or the “masses,” even at the cost of one’s individuality; then how do you connect your personal philosophy, to that of “Satanism” which is based on the self or the individual practitioner coming first? In other words, Satanism, in my opinion (which I know, is only that...just MY opinion) is based on healthy selfishness, while Marxism, and communism, is quite the opposite.

The only argument that I can come up with, using your philosophy (and I might be presumptuous here) is that one would in a sense be selfishly benefitting, by a type of self satisfaction, in being a part of the “collective,” if that is what one desires.

Hey thought i'd rejoin the fray.

Male, good old fashioned Western Conservative to most, Atheistic Libertarian to many, Agnostic Anarchist at heart.

Anti 'Norvo Ordo Seclorum' to the core. (Kook alert! Kook alert!)

Satanism is like um. . . silly?

Anyway i'm not here to denigrate it or its adherents, many of whom here i like, and i don't need black capped defenders replying like slapped bitches to what i wrote above. To each their own.

Probably won't post much but if you see me on 'whos online' or equivalent theres a huge chance that i'll be in the chatroom.

No topic is taboo with me, (theres plenty i'll frown at however) and i can take as good as i give so don't be shy. I tend to talk most about things most people prefer not to talk about.

And i don't mean kiddie porn, snuff films and bukkake, i mean Fractional Reserve Banking, the coming North American Union (Canameriexico) the influence of long standing secret societies in modern politics, mass brainwashing of the population, the fake left-right paradigm, secret police and the growing surveillance state, the evangelical ziochristian circus, Israeli and other foreign influence in major western regional politics (gasp! Anti Semite!), the death of the US Constitution, the coming dollar collapse, Al CIA da, 911 as inside job, the clash of fundamentalisms and the willful transformation of the West into a soviet style tax plantation (but with hip hop, hot cars, football and cheap porn) full of flag waving serfs who think patriotism means following the leader (swoon).

But i'm not all frothing mouth revolutionary, i'm actually pretty laid back, sarcastic and cynical yes, but i try to pepper my comments with jovial humour whenever possible.

Hope to see more familiar faces return and to those who don't know me, hello.

By the way, it's official, Ron Paul has more support from active duty US military personal than all other republicans combined!

I was going to crack a joke about only reading the articles, but that would be even to low for me, so I shall refrain.

Not sure what that is. I'm guessing it's a way for me to pay back money that I still owe to the ummm ahem, semites for borrowing my own money from them? ok ok, slapping my own wrist. Baaaaaaaaad me.

Note to the secret police....I know you do not exist!! I am a good and honest citizen. I really do want to wear my Social Security Number on my forehead. Yes yes, it IS my own choice.
I appreciate the opportunity to contribute my DNA into your data base. Thank you!!
Ummmm, can you send the guys back with my plastic horns now?

Another note to the secret police. I know you don't exist, but if you did, the only reason most of your officers would be ex-Isrealy secret agents, is because you are our friends. Right? See, I'm good, I'm good. I wish to borrow more of my money too. I only have another 600 years of interest to pay on the current loan, and I would like to renew my subscription please. Here, let me lift my bangs, so you can scan my social security bar.

Ahaha!

There's hope for New York yet!

Interesting to note that 10 (shit even 5) years ago you'd be lynched online, pretty much everywhere and especially at a 'satanic' site for using the kind of terms i did in my intro post, and nowadays, obviously, it's almost par for the course. ;\)

Oh the winds they are a changin'.

Hello all! I'm daevid777!

I like it here! I have a wife and kids. I also have a dog and a cat! My dog is white, and my cat is black. I am a human, and I live on a planet we call "Earth". I like bread. I also like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain.

Well, now is as good a time as any to intorduce myself. My name is Everett and I have been a Satanist going on ten years. I have recently retired from the Marine Corps in August of this year after twenty years of service. I suppose I got tired of the B.S and wanted to focus on me and my future as opposed to those of a two bit tyrant. lol In any event I am happily adjusting to civilian life and have opened my own buisiness. I am glad to have found you and am looking forward to learning more about you all and hopefully being able to add something from time to time.

Hey, I'm Billy, (or TC online). I'm not affiliated with the Church of Satan or anything similar as of yet however I have independently followed the same ideals for years. I would claim to be a Satanist in many respects however as Sliver said, such a word often causes more trouble than it's worth.

I'm very interested in the LaVeyan Satanist ideals and would like to focus my time towards following and delving deeper into the ideal as best I can to hopefully see what I can get out of it, after all few religions/philosophies describe my outlook quite as well as this does.

Well Billy, perhaps that is because, most religions and philosophies are describing their own outlook, and not yours.
Same goes for Mr. LaVey. He was describing his own outlook. You just happen to agree with it ;\)

Agreed. One thing I've always thought is that as religions are supposed to be the spiritual beliefs and philosophical outlook of the world from each person, each person should have a marginally different religion. Ironically I seem to have proven that to be not quite true in finding Satanism as I've yet to find a point I disagree on and I'm quite interested in becoming rather active within the church because of this.

I realise that you're not trying to offend people but consider this Darkindas. You go to a Christian website and you say. "Worshiping Jesus Christ is like um... silly?" and see how quickly you get banned. It's a good idea to think how it would sound with other groups and then think to yourself weather this should be acceptable against a fringe group just because they're the fringe.

Ah, but in a sense, we are "silly." Most of us are Atheists, with a flair for the dramatic. The dramatic part is part silliness, in my opinion. We don't take ourselves (mainly the older farts) all that seriously. Isn't the "Black Mass" part clowning around, dressing up, and making fun of the "white lighters?" Heck, if Satanism wasn't fun, and didn't give me the opportunity to be "silly," why would I be apart of it.

Howver, one doesn't have to be an "ass" or the "class clown" to have fun.

I think the more serious a Satanist is, and this goes for other religions as well, the sillier they look. What sets most of us apart from the sheep, is that we know we are often clowning around, while the others actually believe their own silliness.

True, in many respects we are silly, however in reference to the concept of Satanism being silly in and of itself I would disagree, I take it as a serious life choice, even if it's choosing to be silly.
