Well,

It has been some time since I have been here. Glad to see the new forum and all!

Anyway, the name's John J, you can just call me 'Jay', Sliver, or Sliv. I have been a mostly open Satanist since I was about 15, though I have lived by the ideas shared here for as long as I can remember.

I say "mostly open" because it seems that the "S" word tends to close more doors than it opens around these parts.

I look forward to sharing ideas and conversations with all of you.

Hm, I'm an Atheist. I'm pretty tolerant of other religions. I have an interest in the occult, and clairvoyance. Plan to stay for a while.

Hello everybody. I've een a member of The 600 Club for a bit. Some of you know me, most of you don't. My screen name until this incarnation of the board was Rofokale. Thought I'd drop my new name into the bucket.

suicidy,

The name "Sliver" and it's shortening "Sliv" came from my ability to fix big chunks of other peoples' code with "just a small sliver" of my own code.

Before that I was called "Gadget" because I would write small JavaScript bookmarklets that would help some of my buddies debug (or hack) websites they were working on. The buddies called my bookmarklets "Gadgets", thus the name took.

I "got into" Satanism when I traded someone a Manson CD for LaVey's Satanic Bible in high school. Once I read the book (and mentally threw away some parts that I did not agree with) I realized that I was pretty much Satanic (in thought and cultural belief) for as long as I can remember.

Now, how about you, Suicidy? Is that name for obvious reasons, or is there more of a story to it? And if you would share, how and when did you "find Satan"? (sorry, i love using that one)

LadyChaos, Enigma, though I am still new here myself; welcome. Please feel free to share your stories as well.

~Sliv

Hi!

My name is Disabuse Conformity and I'm an addict. I've been addicted to this drug since it was created. My previous ventures with this drug introduced me as the name Cybernetics, but I've long since discarded that handle.

My name is Disabuse and I'm an addict.

Greetings!

I've already had a short chat with Fist and this is actually my third post, but I will use it to let you all know a bit about me.

My history with Satanism is kind of odd. A good friend of mine had a "necronomicon" and it contained some of the mystical creations of Crowley in it. I was a student of knowledge and decided to try and read it. Unfortunately I had difficulties grasping the nonsensical ideas. My personal quest at the time for rare and hidden knowledge eventually led to my purchase of The Satanic Bible.

I first read The Satanic Bible in 2005 and was truly inspired. Since, I have decided to practice Satanism as a religion and work hard on improving my skills in Magic. The only difficulties I've had with grasping the concept of Satanism in general was the idea of Greater Magic, but eventually, through deep study and a bit of assistance from a couple other Satanists it had become clear to me.

I enjoy the visual aesthetics of this board and the other features such as the chat room and shout box are really nice extras that I haven't really seen on other message boards. I look forward to having some really good discussions about Satanism and life in general with you all!

TO BE EVIL IS TO LIVE!

HAIL SATAN!

Thanks Sliver.

I've read a little bit of The 600 Club, waited in the wings. I just decided to jump right in only yesterday.

We'll talk brother...

I'm a 21 year-old student who has been studying and sympathetic to Modern, non-theistic Satanism since I was 13-14, but only recently have I felt the need in my life to really begin practicing it in a ritualistic and semi-public way.
I am a member of the United Order of Cerberus and a minister of the Universal Life Church (but then again, who isn't?), and despite being an Atheist (my parents became atheists when I was younger due to their hatred of their own fundamentalist upbringings), I thoroughly enjoy studying the religious of the world (especially Islam and mainstream Christianity).

My version of personal Satanism is rather unorthodox; while I take a lot of inspiration from LaVey and The Satanic Bible, I do not unite with the more objectivist/Nietzschean aspects of his philosophy and personally subscribe to a Marxist-Leninist perspective. In a sense, I view Lucifer as being the first revolutionary- a revolutionary leading a people's army against a violent, tyrannical god. Thus, for me, Satan is an inspiration in my opposition to religion, capitalism, and slavery of the mind. Some have accused LaVeyan Satanism as being nothing more than Ayn Rand with horror movie props; if that is true, one could accuse me of being nothing more than Karl Marx/Antonio Gramsci with horror movie props.

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!

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.

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. ;\)

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.

That's because christians are "insert favorite xtoid bash here" types, right? But satanists are like, so way different, and stuff, yea?

And to think that i don't consider what i write, that i don't consider how i'm perceived or that i don't consider the local customs of a place i enter is well . . . we need a frown smiley.

So grow some skin, be as a pillar not a post. Read the Satanic Bible. Iconoclasm, rationality, anti herd 'prejudice', contempt for hypocracy, respect where it's due, odes to those who run counter to the prevailing orthodoxy etc etc.

Being banned for an honest introduction in a thread called 'Introductions' for merely running counter to the prevailing orthodoxy would do nothing but justify my comment supremely, no?

Basically regardless of what you call yourself you're usually just another slave in the plantation following a wafting scent left long before you arrived. There's little difference between most satanists and most christians (or anyone else for that matter). Apples and oranges. Most of you freaks are what i'd call mainstreamers. And what i call the mainstream i personally find rather radical (radically apathetic, powerless and ignorant, but most bizzarely of all, quite happy to be so).

Of course i'm considered a radical engine of outrageous claims, paranoia and dangerous subversive propaganda to what i see as the radically complacent.

It's kinda like the story about satan and god except that god is actually bad and like satan is goo. . oh. . eha.

Meh, It's not that complicated, we can pick our own.

Ya dig?

Again if you take offense from the above then i'm compelled to think you consider yourself radically apathetic, powerless and ignorant. If you don't feel that way about yourself at all, then why react like i'm talking to you? Obviously i'm not addressing you, because that is not you, right? Or am i, because it is? Only you can tell me. Or not.

Heh.

Anyway i'm here because this site and myself have a long history. To say more outside say the chatroom, in idle chit chat, would be nothing more than an act of oneupmanship, so i'll spare you any preening. But let's just say i think of this place a home of sorts and i've been on an extended holiday.

Interesting how Asmedious knew exactly where i was coming from, took no offense, read between the lines (not that i left much room) and replied in a way that seemed to welcome a like mind. Yet the both of you seem to miss the jist completely and take issue with my perceived insolence.

I'm sorry masters, how should i atone for my sins?

A better question, if any was even required, would have been 'hey why do you find Satanism silly?' not a kind of 'you're walking on thin ice mofo, conform or leave'. A tad dramatic but i'm trying to stave off further unnecessary replies.

Either way the question has now been somewhat answered i trust.

If you still can't see how the common satanic view, norms and taboo's, could at all be considered by those who absorbed them long ago as 'silly', then why are you here?

To learn from others how to be more like yourself?

\:D

You needn't reply. Those questions are rhetorical.

Ok, enough from me. Talk about 'flair for the dramatic'. I feel like i flew in as a raven, transmogrified into a shadowy figure, then raised a fist and made lightning course round my arm!

It's good to be back.

I see you're still here, thus an academic point. However remember the forums don't have to be fair and just, if people were just getting pissed because you where here that would be reason enough to be banned. Why? Because the forum is here for people to enjoy and you would be a taint on that enjoyment. Of cause all this is hypothetical, you actually aren't bothering me at all or anyone else as it matters so a ban would be unlikely on the most arrogant of forums.

Yea i get what you're saying Tornado, it's all good.

As for the most arrogant of forums, old habits die hard. This is often a dress up party in Satanland.

Basically those who run the show here know i'm not talking to them; they earned my respect long ago.

These places do tend attract the idle Darkduder666'ers however and i enjoy prodding them a little, that's all. I've been gone a long time.

Besides, i'm waiting for Tatz to pick on me for not capping my i's. ;\)

Peace.

Pick on you?

You are smart enough to know what being too lazy to capitalize your I's when speaking of yourself reveals about your personality...

Surely if YOU wish to portray yourself in such a manner that is your business...

Peace

Wait, there are SA users here... kill it, they're contagious, almost as contagious as those 4Chan bugs. I had a friend who caught one, we didn't see him for months and when he came out he was.... he was.... one of THEM!!!!

Oh no, it'll be like a scene from Mad Max.

Would love to go to Australia at some point but I practically act like a damn vampire in sunlight. I get sunburned in seconds.

While I understand what you are saying and it has merit to a point. You also must realize the flaws of your reasoning.

I mean, I haven't spoken to you yet, was forming an opinion of you, and at the end of that sentence of yours (assuming I took it literally of course)I felt you really weren't worth the time.
Not to say it wasn't a good little laugh.
And it's really quite amazing how you could get the gist of your writing, no matter how badly you molested the English language.

However, it's hard to respect anyone who doesn't...shall we say, care enough about his own arguments and ideas to properly capitalize.

I am sure you know the amount of job applications that would get accepted if one wrote out a resume in such a fashion.

...Having said that, well, at least you don't type all in caps.
Looking at it that way, you're almost a godsend huh?

I agree totally with your statement and add that it is hard to seriously respect someone who clearly does not respect themselves enough to capitalize their own I when writing... As I have spoken with Dak before and have seen his level of thinking I had nothing to say about this to him personally...

I myself when first posting on this forum was hit by the grammar police... My reaction was to use a signature that read "spellins and punctuations used to my liking"... This stopped the grammar police but I soon questioned myself who has won the discussion... Who truly wins by me trying to punctuate and communicate to my best ability?

I once thought as Dak but I have gotten over my ego to better myself...

Do what you will...

WHAT'S WRONG WITH TYPING IN ALL CAPS?

Since when has the forum become a job application? While I recognize the importance of conducting oneself with a sense of decorum, I also find it unnecessary to be so formal at all times. It is the same when choosing your words carefully in select company. One wouldn't go into a job interview and say "whassup, dawg? Gimme a job, motherfucker." (Although, one would have to wonder if an employer wouldn't see that as brass balls...I'll have to think about trying that one out in my next interview). But amongst friends and peers, one's tongue is, shall we say, a little more loose.

In a thread like this where there is little, if any, serious discussion, why the need for such formality?

It was, and they removed all the feeling from the characters by re-dubbing it with American accents. I won't watch that shit. They gave half the characters unconvincing South Amaerican drawls.

In the UK most films are kept the way they are originally made, same with TV shows. It's only USA that re-names, re-edits and sometimes even re-makes all the shows.

That is because our shows have to be watered down, uncontroversial, without the slightest possibility of offending anyone. This is what the majority of labotomized zombies demand. We even have to have laugh tracks, to let us know when something is funny or amusing, so we know when to laugh along.

I absolutely despise laugh tracks, they ruin shows, especially on more recent comedies where you need subtitles because the laugh track is so loud you can't hear the damn actors.

I know there are is least one UK sitcom that didn't have a laugh track and the American audience actually thought it was a documentary.

I think there is a huge difference between a cued laugh track (Seinfeld), and a taping of a show with a live audience, like 3rd Rock From the Sun. If the laughs were canned for 3rd Rock, I don't think it would've been as successful.

I'm not surprised about Americans thinking non-canned UK shows were documentaries. The dry voice of a British commentator from National Geographic tapes back in the 70s and 80s were all our schools could get a hold of to show in science classes (think back to the Monty Python sketch with Graham and Eric hunting mosquitos--very similar). There was always some sunburnt Brit dressed up in safari khakis and wearing a pith helmet walking around in remote African grasslands, pointing at the flora and fauna and attempting to discern the way of life of the native tribes.

I've been a member of the old forum since early 2004.

I am basically an Atheist with pantheistic leanings, although I have a very strong individualistic bent.

It is within this basic framework of my understanding that I may incorporate various forms of symbolism, including Satanic imagery, but also some Christian (including Gnostic) symbolism, and ideas from Taoism and Zen, as well as Western Stoic and Epicurean philosophy (which was ruthlessly oppressed by the Church).

I also enjoy reading Nietzsche, Hume, and a bit of Spinoza and Schopenhauer, although I find I gain more knowledge per effort through well-written commentaries - especially when the original texts are badly written (try reading Hegel for fuck's sake)!

In addition to all this, I am a trained and qualified Hypnotherapist, incorporating techniques from CBT (Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy) into an evidence-based framework of psychotherapy, which also incorporates elements from Hellenistic philosophy (particularly Stoicism and Epicureanism).

And for Sliver (and others) - I'm a programmer too. I studied C and Java at university, but I've concentrated mostly on C++ (with a 3D engine) of late.
I got into programming at the age of 10, back in the early 90s.
My interests have diversified since, especially in regard to my interests in philosophy, psychology, human behaviour, martial arts, and many other areas.

I've been looking for a way to integrate my interest in programming and computers with my deeper interests in the universe, the mind and human nature...

REALLY? Really, enjoy? ENJOY? I enjoy sex, good pizza, and a B-horror film from time to time. Nietzsche is more like "required reading", and Hume... enjoy??? Really, really, really????

No offense meant here, Paula, you're cool, but I had to ask.

Did you like "Anthem" by Ayn Rand? Have you ever read "Little Women"? Or Dickens?
