Why are people afraid when they hear the word Satanist?

When i say i am a Satanist, everyone imagine's immediately that i sacrifice goats to a full moon for my lord and savior the Devil... WTF is wrong with you people : before believing bullshit how about getting to know what Satanism is?

  • Can you please PLEASE. Read the first couple of sentences. You SACRIFICE GOATS to your SAVIOUR the DEVIL 😱😂😂😂 on a full moon. I feel like twilight just missed a part in their movie. Hahaha. Omg or what if you piss a satanist off and they kill you with their dreadlocks 😂😂

    On a serious note.. I think of it negatively because it's the devil. I don't care if people believe in him or not. But he represents all things evil. And there ain't nothing good in evil. You're not going to get shit being all dark and gloomy in life. dats all. I don't care if your practice it. But I'd rather stay away from them.

      well before you continue saying shit... let me educate you.
      There are 2 kinds of satanists... those who are theistic (who believe the Devil is real and have their own dogmas and rituals like the Church has) and the Atheistics (who simply follow a philosophy of life). Now you stay away from them because of Satan in Satanism... but that is being very close minded, stupid and having a prejudiced mind.
      Now, let me finish with a bit of Fictional Cutlure : Arch Angel Samael, wanted freedom and equality with his father and was forever villainised for it... was thrown out of heaven and became Satan (or Lucifer = the bringer of light in latin).
      Final question : if Satan really was Evil incarnate... why would he punish sinners in Hell? wouldn't be a HUGE party down there rather than torturing the souls of those who haved sinned?

  • Because most people don't realize it's just a bunch of people mocking religion. When believers think Satan they think the devil and hell all that stuff.

    I don't really see the point though.. Enough people already fear and misunderstand nonbelievers without the satanism label included even if it is taken as a joke. It's not a joke to people who believe. What may be just silly stories and mythology to you could be a horrifying reality to someone else.

    I've learned it's best to walk on eggshells around believers when it comes to the issues. It's already hard for many to think an atheist can be a good person living an enriching and full life. If you add satanic imagery on top of that it just alienates people more. Show them who you are through your actions and if people have questions then answer them. Mockery is just as bad as when a religious person automatically assumes your life is meaningless for not believing in their particular god/gods or religion. It certainly doesn't foster understanding or communication. That's just my opinion of course.

      Captial Satanic Sin NĀ°1 : Stupidity... You volontarily decide to stay in your ignorance because all you see in Satanism is Satan : a fictional character that supposedly is evil incarnate.. In the Bible yet I didn't see Satan kill anyone, God killed around 3 billion though. Satan (or the arch angel Samael) wanted equality with his father and refused to love Humans as much as God loved them. For his freedom of mind and speech he will forever be a Villain? (if he is truly a villain... why does he punish sinners in hell? )
      Question everything you are told... don't just accept "one truth"... accept all sides of the truth.

  • doesn't make me afraid. After all, Satan is the moral figure of the bible. He may be the "bad guy" but he tells the truth ("gain knowledge from tree") and murders zero people in the entire book/library. Meanwhile the supposed moral character, the "good guy" lies in the garden ("you will die this day") and murders almost 3,000,000. I'd assume a Satanist is more moral than a Christian any day of the week and twice on Sunday, all else held equal.

      Satan is really the Prometheus character of the bible-he's the one, the god or demigod figure that HELPS humans... giving them knowledge. just as Prometheus gave humans a godly power-fire. Same shit.. except in every OTHER religion, the helper god of man is LOVED, REVERED... only in CHristianity is the teaching to despise the one helping them... creepy

    • 2mo

      he was a free thinker, rebelled against god and got shunned because of his free spririt... That is why i love Richard Dawkins' quote on the god of the old testament : "The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." - Richard Dawkins

  • Because they only hear the devil referred to in sermons meant to demonize certain aspects of society believers don't agree with. Very few believers actually know their scripture outside of what their pastor reads to them. The devil did some pretty nasty stuff to Job and his family, but if you read, it was because the devil told god that Job was pious because he was so well off. God then replied, basically saying, I'll take everything from this man and he'll still be pious. Don't forget, according to scripture, god made everything, including the devil. Also I may be wrong but the devil only ever kills like 10 people (Job's family), encouraged Adam and Eve to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (seems he was doing them a favor). What did god do? Well lets see. Not counting the flood that killed literally everything that wasn't on the ark, he only killed around 900,400 people. No wonder the devil rebelled. I haven't read much into satanism, but (no offense) their scripture and mythology are probably just as contradictory, nonsensical, and just as downright bizarre as the other religions. But, I could be wrong.

      @FrenchyRomain P. S. I don't judge you anymore than I judge other adherents to to other religions. Religions and gods are invented by humans. You may agree with that, I don't know. From what I've heard, the satanic bible is actually much more moral than the holy scripture of the three monotheistic religions.

    • 2mo

      The only point where you are wrong is that satanism in the Anton LaVey sense of the term isn't theistic at all :)

    • 2mo

      That's why I said, "Religions and gods are invented by humans. You may agree with that, I don't know."

      I actually read a bit of the satanic bible before I went to bed last night. Liked what I read. But I wouldn't call myself a satanist for the same reason RedThread wouldn't. Plus, I only got a few paragraghs into the book of fire so I really don't know anything at this point. More just beginning to educate myself on it.

      Thats just showmanship. Its not like he punishes sinners and welcomes good guys too.

Reverse Psychology to obtain something you want could be called magic according to Anton LaVey

      Satan isn't evil, he punishes sinners doesn't he? How is that being evil... he helps God in that case. Lucifer (the bringer of light) brought knowledge to man before the Christians changed his "role" in the World. Tell me what you think of this quote please :

    • 2mo

      The Roman god, Lucifer, was the bearer of light, the spirit of the air, the personification of
      enlightenment. In Christian mythology he became synonymous with evil, which was only to
      have been expected from a religion whose very existence is perpetuated by clouded
      definitions and bogus values! It is time to set the record straight. False moralisms and occult
      inaccuracies must be corrected. Entertaining as they might be, most stories and plays about
      Devil worship must be recognized as the obsolete absurdities they are. It has been said "the
      truth will make men free". The truth alone has never set anyone free. It is only DOUBT which
      will bring mental emancipation.
