Why Would Anyone (in the right mind) Worship Satan?

(i'm just guessing here, so dont get all angry on me if i got you wrong)
gothics and some other alternative sub-cultures. do just like the idea, those groups use satanism to "slap christianity"
but a real satanist does not belong to those groups (well they can but no by definition) a real satanist actually believes what the religion tells.


I'll just quote Wikipedia here to show what I'm talking about:

LaVeyan Satanism is a philosophy (not considered a religion by many of its followers) founded in 1966 by Anton Szandor LaVey. Its teachings are based on individualism, self-indulgence, and "eye for an eye" morality. Unlike theistic Satanists, LaVeyan Satanists are atheists who regard Satan as a symbol of man's inherent nature. According to religioustolerance.org, LaVeyan Satanism is a "small religious group that is unrelated to any other faith, and whose members feel free to satisfy their urges responsibly, exhibit kindness to their friends, and attack their enemies". Its beliefs were first detailed in The Satanic Bible and it is overseen by the Church of Satan.


So there. Neither the Church of Satan nor the Satanic Bible were made by peope who actually believe in Satan.

There are of course theistic satanists as well.

Also, I would have responded sooner, but I got lost in the comments for that link you gave.

The 1st one, under the category Atheistic Satanism.

It's more like Christians who think Christ was a good teacher and moral example, but not a magic man, nor a spiritual savior.

Not believing in a deity whilst being completely ready to follow Satan's ideals: Get as far in life as you can and strive

maybe because of the same reason someone (in the right mind) would worship a christian god? you can turn the question of this thread around in any way you like. why would someone (in the right mind) decide to marry/divorce/work/train/study/be lazy?

There is a reason to worship the christian god: fear. If you disobey him you burn in hell. Basically, he's an insane dictator. Or, more likely, an invention of rulers trying to keep their subjects in line. (The metaphysical version of "I'll get my big brother to beat you up&quot

Anyways, to sum the thread up in a single sentence...

There's an absurd amount of extremely valid reasons why people might worship Satan as opposed to God.

who would you like to worship more, a god who punishs you for an eternity just because you never believed in him/her/it or if your believe in god crumbles, or satan, who does not care if you belife in him/her/it?

yeah, i am still not sure what gender god is (if gods can have a gender). maybe god is genderless...

also, if i remember it right then satan used to be an angel who rebelled against god because god was not so kind as some christians want to believe it. or was that lucifer? wait, are not lucifer and satan the same? i have to read the bible again...
