Why Atheistic Satanism is a Massive Joke.
When I first looked into Satanism after walking away from Christianity I read the Satanic Bible by Anton LaVey. Even though I agreed with much of what he was saying I quickly realized this was simply Atheism in Devil Clothes. What I now call Atheists playing Dress Up. While this may have an appeal for the teenager that is rebelling from a Christian upbringing as far as something to maintain for any length of time is not only silly but down right stupid.
It had only taken me about 6 Months to realize that the COS (Church of Satan) was Atheists in Devil clothes and I simply knew if I was going to be an Atheist I would simply be an Atheist not one that was playing dress up to scare the hell out of the Christians. It is one thing for a person to use the label of Satanist for shock value with Christians. It is completely different to use that label as a means of trying to make money on something you really don’t believe. This makes people like Sin Jones no damn different then the Evangelists that only use the God shit to try and make money on the gullible masses.
There are core elements of Satanism that the Atheist would regard as simply bullshit. Some of those are:
Since Atheism is simply a rejection of all Gods as there is no Evidence to support the existence of any Gods. It is absolutely incapable with any religion that claims to be based on a God / Deity of any kind. For an Atheist to say as Sin Jones did with me that She was the Devil. An idea I had first seen in her FAQ’s and laughed at the very notion, pointing out that worshiping yourself is a type of Narcissism. Then to have her comment on some of my Facebook posts and actually say about being the Devil. I couldn’t help but point out that this type of thing is a clear sign of someone suffering from Grandiose Delusional Disorder.
Frankly it shouldn’t surprise anyone that an Atheist would point out the Delusional Disorder of someones outrageous claims. For me what made this even funnier was the fact that Sin Jones claims to also be an Atheist. Now picture this. She claims to be an Atheist and yet she also says she is a Satanist. While I have said that I an an Atheist / Anti Theist. What an Anti Theist is quite simply is this: Not only do I see no evidence for any God. I feel it is a damn good thing there is no evidence or logical reason to believe any God exists. After all who among us would want to live forever in a celestial North Korea?
The entire basis of what is termed Modern Satanism is really nothing short of playing So-called Satanic games. It is a desire to be going for Shock value nothing more and nothing less. There is no basis for a Historical Satan just as there is no basis for a Historical God. Add to that the ideas of what this Satan would be like come directly from Christian / Islamic Bullshit. There is Zero evidence to support the existence of the Christian or Islamic Satan / Iblis. So the ideas of Satan / The Devil / Lucifer / Iblis being a Man with red skin, Horns, Cloven Hooves & a Pitch Fork are cultural bullshit. The Half goat aspect actually came from when the Christians invaded Pagan areas and noticed those people worshiped Pan. So the Christians took the image of Pan and turned that into the Devil. After all the biggest thing Christians do when they want to convert someone from another religion is to demonize the God of that religion. Since it is not the Christian God then it is the Devil.
While the Pentagram is simply the Pagan Pentacle Reversed. The 5 points on the Pentacle have specific meanings.
The Inverting of symbols is really a Joke. In fact the Upside down Cross is not a symbol of Satanism but the Catholic Religion.
If you are going to try and use symbolism you really should know what it means. Just turning a symbol upside down doesn’t magically make it the reverse meaning. After all what this clearly shows is a serious lack of creativity to have to copy other religions symbols.
