Why is it that satanists are among the nicest people I know and actually make sense? Maybe it's because we actually think things through before running our mouths and respect the right to opinions. Maybe I just hate hypocrites!!

Maybe you, like every man, like the company of like-minded people?

Or maybe you're one of those "I know the truth and you don't" which makes you disregard every other persons opinion as false and hypocritical.

Or you just live in an area full of assholes.

Who knows?

So...you felt you needed to make a thread about this? You couldn't have just posted this little rant in the Shout box on the home page?

If you wanted to hear from some of us you should have probably inquired a little more intelligently than asking such a broad question like you did.

My guess would be that people are assholes to you because you annoy the shit out of them, not unlike you do to me. And maybe they aren't being "assholes" at all. No, maybe they just don't like you and therefore do not treat you in the manner in which you think you are entitled to be treated.

Perhaps the reasons "Satanists are so nice" is because most Satanists will at first attempt a cordial exchange of ideas (unless you are an idiot from the outset) before slaughtering a person like the cattle they are. Of course, when communication fails and civility breaks down, there is a good chance you will see that cordiality disappear quicker than a cock down Annette Schwartz's throat.

Six, I completely understand your response. Thank your for letting me know about being more thorough when posting! I don't bother anyone and stay to myself most of the time but have just had a lot on my mind. I do not care of judge anyone for what they do or their beliefs and was just pissed off and tired from long hours but will do better. I enjoy your posts and reading and would like to get to talk with you all more often. I will think things through before responding instead of just writing something from now on spur of the moment so thank you all.

Superman, you're participating in a Satanic community. There is no need for long-winded apologies about meager posting, or for that matter; anything at all because I'm thinking that you made a pact with the Satanic mode of thinking, thus, opening up the typology of mentation interpenetrating Satanism. The more you acquiesce, and show favor to other peoples posting replies when they lambast you for attempting to reach out to the community; the more you will be aliented from the forums because it goes against the very fabric that makes Satanism up...reliance on oneself (responsibilty to the responsible). The only way you are being judged is on your words that you post. My advice? Get an intelligent mouth grounded into your intellection, and answer posts from a stern point of view. If the other Satanists either despise or become despondent, fuck all of them that mean you ill will on your diabolical journey! Some people are watching what you post and how you post, thus, they come to understand the depth of your personality and anything else they might want to attribute to it. Remeber, your Satanic either far along the encumbered path or beginning afresh.

As to your original question, people cannot help but fall into scientism in which everything is qualitatively and/or quantitatively deduced. Aristotle was the first to put forth a teleological-biological approach to which science as we know it grew into elaborate systems. Everything around us is somehow under this guise as the only way to conceptualize or objectify things. I'm from the vantage point off that mark, and I consciously put myself in a different way of thinking daily. Anyway, it would seem that science (psychology or biology) can do an adequate job of intellectualizing and explaining the conditional cause. But, as to why people behave in a certain way is too abstract for any science to plausibly and definitively answer. On the other hand, I look to the situation as centering on Truth; and, have come up with my own philosophical statement: As I Am. That means that whatever a person does, they are left with 'As I Am' irregardless of the impact to others around them. That is purely Satanic. Think about it. Whatever the condition I'm in, I'm left with 'As I Am.'

I want to express a bliss to you that goes beyond the realm of words, and wish you well on your sojourn.

Doomsayer, you're new, so I'm going to warn you just this once--no one-liners.

Another thing, can you please use a spell checker? There is only one "p" in "apologize".

You also might want to take a step back and re-think your posts that call long-time members "dumb-asses" and that they need to "educate themselves" (re: "Are you a Satanist in public" thread").

You're in no position to demand anything of anyone here, and that includes respect.

There's two "o"s in "apologize", too. \:D

Was manofsteel asking a rhetorical question about a large number of people being not too bright? Well, I'll agree with that but it doesn't make Satanists "nice" by default.
I don't actually understand what this thread is about so I'll be quiet now. \:\)

Yes, I will use spell check as that made me feel like a moron, thanks for calling that to my attention...shit happens. AND I'm not calling anyone a dumb-ass, i was saying that IF he were misinformed, he could have an inaccurate belief, and upon realizing such a thing one might feel like a dumb-ass. Most of what i have read about true Satanism, in my opinion ( as taught by Anton LaVey) is that one does not preach or push their own beliefs upon another. You may talk about you beliefs, but be a respectful conversationalist and give the other a turn to talk and a right to their own opinion, you don't have to agree, nor do they. State your beliefs as your opinions, NOT concrete law. Getting back to the subject, being a satanist in public, i do wear my goat of mendes Pentagram tee-shirt out in public, i have a tattoo on my foot of the same thing,so yes i guess I'm a Satanist in public. If asked about my beliefs i will tell you, but i rarely offer that info. without reason. If your embarrassed by being a satanist in public then, it probably isn't true to you.

I did not mean to offend or appear ignorant to the subject or toward any individual, and for that i apologize

felixgarnet. I was asking a serious question because of the things I have seen recently. I grew up in this town and moved back 15 years later to like 15 churches and the rudest people I have ever met. An old guy tried to beat my wife up at eh ATM over who would go first, I mean holy shit. I know not all satanist are nice cause I am not always but at least we give people a chance. There is a lot more that has gone on but I don't have the time. This community is just loving me I can tell you but I have been subtle so we will see how it goes. 97% of this place is god fearing so it is just crazy. Gotta love the small towns. I am just pissed off at how they treat people is all and like I said HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL What LOL the fuck LOL did you LOL just say?

She was alone then? I don't get it.

Find the old man, kick his ass while your wife watches...

Satisfaction.

Okay, I'm not actually telling you to do that... don't do that... nevermind, it's all cool... don't hurt anybody, that's my motto.

Old man is fucking with your wife? If nothing can be done in your shitbag town... MOVE.

Someone fucks with my girl,

They're gonna crawl with their broken fingers over blood and spit to try and find their eyeball and their missing teeth.

Or...

I'll be dead.

They'll still be limping for the rest of their life.

It's like a Win/Win.

She was alone, I was on my way home from work but he was gone by the time I got there or I would be behind bars I'm sure. I was just surprised she didn't kick his ass. Not normally a very timid girl.

Manofsteel, I think it’s ironic that you say Satanists are among the nicest people you know, and immediately some of the members here (who I presume are Satanists or at least generally agree with Satanism) start ripping into you.

If you even briefly peruse this website you’ll find that Satanists rarely fit into the “nice” category. That’s not a knock on Satanism – “nice” often suggests to me slick charmers not unlike politicians or used car salesmen. I relate to Satanists not because they are “nice” but because they tend to be authentic. They tell it to you straight, even if it means pissing you off.

Personally, I have no use for those who constantly paint themselves as “nice” by smiling and nodding and avoiding the slightest hint of confrontation. If I’m screwing up, I want someone to tell me in no uncertain terms that I’m screwing up so I’ll know better next time.

“Nice” and a buck fifty will buy you a cup of coffee. Just go to any major city and check out the guys at the intersections holding cardboard signs. They’re as nice as can be. Hell of a lot of good it’s done them.

A Joe Bananas quote! Good stuff.

Here is another mafia related one: "Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer." Vito Corleone, quoted by Michael Corleone.

Sorry, I think maybe a thread should be started with great mafia quotes, such as the Bananas one and the Godfather one.

To Manofsteel - don't worry about what others are doing, focus on what you're doing. If you don't like it where you live then move away.

To Will - nice post

I have to agree with William on this one. "Nice" is not the term I would use to describe Satanists. Honesty and blatant truthfulness would be more like it.

To Manofsteel: That guy was lucky it wasn't me standing at the ATM. I tend to tell people it's their problem if they're having a bad day and not mine, in rather abrupt terms.

I tend to be like this myself, especially at work. I've found that lately I'm more vocal than I've been in a LONG time about what I think. My bullshit detector has been on overdrive and I'm less tolerant of it when I hear it. Sometimes I'll say something and sometimes I keep the info filed away for what REALLY needs to be said at a later date.

I agree with you whole heartedly. I think you took what I meant wrong and I should have elaberated more. I just mean at least as nice listening when someone is giving their opinion or talking and then telling them they are full of shit. At least give someone the chance. Most of us do that and aren't so quick to judge as many others. I just think we take in what we hear, think about it and then make a decision while others, ( need I say religous people) are very quick to judge. I get accused of being an asshole a lot so I in nomeans think we are all little angels, I just think we at least hear people out before we say something to them.

I'll give you some useful advice that you can take as a warning: don't become attached to other people. By becoming attached to another means that we make that person an object of attachment. This is just a way of becoming attached to ourselves in the form of attachment to that other person. Attachment to another person is really attachment to the self. Becoming attached to the self means that the self has entraped itself. Now, this is entrapment of the self by itself, we become a prisoner of that other person. This can be looked upon as a form of an egocentric position. The risk inherent in being attached to another person and therefore entraping ourselves becomes clear when that other person is taken away from us. When the other person is taken away, we experience the pain of being robbed of our own selfhood, for the most part: completely.

Existence is self-awarness.

Existence aware of itself is self-attachment.

Kumtcha!

paolo sette,

That was the worst circle logic I have ever read. And you somehow managed to think that was advice? Really?

Something must be really broken in me, because I enjoy the bonds I have with the people in my life, and for those that have left this lifetime, I can't imagine my life without knowing them. I didn't lose myself but learned more about myself and life, because of them. In one way or another, they enriched my life, even if there were some rough times. For those that have simply moved on or I have pulled away from, more power to them and me. The things I've learned along the way are priceless, and there aren't many that I hold a grudge against. I still can't imagine my life without knowing them too. I didn't lose myself; I grew to be the person I am now, instead.

You have some weird issues going on and to give advice like that speaks volumes. I'm glad I'm not like you.

I wholheartedly agree. Too truely live you have to become close to people, especially the ones u love. I would rather have a best friend and a lover and lose them than to never have had one at all. At least I had experienced that feeling. But, it is a personal choice and decision.

Other people are just assholes for the reason they probably don't match an individuals own code of honour and views on different topics.

As far as I am concerned, no person walking the surface of this planet can be considered nice. Not even those whom I (should) respect, mentored me, share ideas with or even have a little chitchat about puffy little things with.

In general, people truly are assholes in nature. At least, those who I do not like and (dis)belief stories/words/concepts/ideas which I find quite "fill in adjective".

At least I'll be fair with y'all, I'm a hypocrit, a liar, a racist, a scammer and whatnot I have been called before. But I admit being a hypocrit in some situations, I admit for having lied to people and it wouldn't be the first time I partake in a smallscale scam. Perhaps I should join a carnival, or the circus as a con-man. But what truly counts in my own book of honour and morals.

I see no disadvantage in becomming attached to another person, to the extend it isn't counterproductive or clouding the mind.
To each their own perhaps, I'm quite an elitist on social level. And very elitist when it comes to love-life and the subject of having sex. Only had one girlfriend and am still a virgin. I see no problems in admitting that. Quality above quantity my mind says. And I honestly fail to see how a person can take honour in saying how many girls/guys he/she fucked. But thats just me.

To me personal honor, according to my own code is very important. It is one of the very few things that no one can ever take away from me.

It’s a slippery slope though, because I do not feel that I have to be honorable to those who are not the same with me. On one hand I am very comfortable about lying to those who I don’t care about, but believe in being open with friends and allies.

When I give my word, or make a promise, I fully intend to keep it, even if it may be detrimental to me in some way. That is why I very rarely make promises even to friends, and never to anyone who I am not close to.

If I make a deal or have an agreement with someone with a verbal promise and a handshake, I CHOSE to be bound by it one hundred percent and will not attempt to find loopholes in the agreement in order to get out of it. On the other hand if someone insists on written contracts and signatures through the ass, I feel no obligation to abide by it. This doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t honor any written contract, but since I don’t feel that I gave my word of honor on it, it is not nearly as strong of an obligation in my view. In other words a written contract doesn’t have nearly as much meaning to me, as an agreement based on honor and trust.

Also if someone wants to tell me a secret I intend to keep it at all cost, but I often tell them before hand that I will likely reveal it under physical torture, but generally that is the only way anyone would get it out of me. When I was in the psych field, at times this was a bit of a dilemma because I felt the same obligation to keep the secrets of psychiatric patients if they asked to speak to me in confidence. If they asked to tell me something and said that they didn’t want me to share the information with anyone I ALWAYS told them up front that there were certain things that I could not be bound to, because if the secret was about an intent to harm themselves or others I would not be willing to keep that kind of a burden to myself.
When it comes to friends and allies, I make no such exceptions. They can tell me anything at all and I will not reveal it, if I tell them that I wont. This is one reason that I don’t like to be told serious things in confidence and why I chose my friends and allies very carefully.

I also hold others in high esteem, who have a strong belief in honor, as long as their honor system somewhat matches my own. Those people who can never tell a lie to anyone and often make promises to anyone under the sun, are stupid in my view and do not fit the honorable category.

Music to my ears. I am the same way. I am old school I guess cause I believe in a handshake and that should do it. People anymore don't have any trust but I believe it needs to be earned back for society to ever recover. Everyome is too scared and rightfully so of all going on around us. A firm handshake and a hug should be all it takes to make someone believe that you are true. I am 33 and I can remember when that was still the case. Hope you all had a safe Halloween and please live like it is your last day every day!!!!

“Nice” definition you give me there manofsteel. Cleverly concealed within the syntax of a compliment. “The nicest people” you know eh? Gee, I feel sadistic all of the sudden, how can it be? What a strange sensation, I never felt like this before. Nah, I’m just kidding. I’m actually the nicest guy you’ll ever meet, coming at ya in my “rollercoaster of love,” safety-tested and setting out to please. Oh damn, it’s five o’clock already! I have this thing going you know, I’ll be right back ok…? Yeah talk to you later, you too, ok, bye!

People may be ass holes for a variety of reasons. Some seem to actually take pride in being an ass hole, which is pretty pathetic in my book since it really isn't much of an accomplishment. If someone actually feels accomplished just from being a prick they probably don't have much going for them. In other cases, they may just have a short fuse or whatever else.

I wouldn't really describe Satanists as being "the nicest people you'll ever meet", that may just be true for the select ones that the OP knows. Some are nice, some are pricks just like with most kinds of people. For some, Satanists are perceived as ass holes just because of things dealing with Satanic philosophy. Most notably, the way most of us will reject those who are fighting for 'acceptance of Satanism', which many may guess is something we would support.

People define ass hole differently. By my own standard, I wouldn't say I am one. I'll treat people the way I want to be treated, unless of course they don't return that favor. I may come off as an ass hole to some because I'm more reserved, and don't really mind being that way. I have friends if I have things in common with them, but not just for the sake of having them. I won't try and win anybody over, and won't participate in activities that I don't really enjoy. That may be taken personally by some people instead of who I am. If someone invites me to say, a night out clubbing I wouldn't go simply because I don't like it, and someone may take it as me just not wanting to hang out with them.

I adhere to a certain ethical code of sorts. I make it a point to tell someone the truth if they ask for my opinion. People always say "don't sugar coat it, don't be polite" but I don't really view telling the truth as being rude. To me, letting someone believe a lie is doing a disservice to them. I rarely ask for someone's opinion on my abilities because I can usually measure them on my own, but if I ask I want the truth. If you act like a dick about it then I'll take it as disrespect, but if your telling me the truth to help me I'll appreciate it. I'll be upset with someone if I find out they lied later. Letting someone believe they are better than they are will only hinder them, if they believe you.
