    Isn't the worship of Satan predicated on the Dark One's fight against God, Himself?

    They would have to be theists in a strict sense, because they believe in God. They
    simply don't worship Him.

    They certainly share the same belief in something you can never perceive with theists.

    There are no atheists, Satanists included. Everyone has a god -- it's just a matter of who/what. For many it's their own intellect and pride.

    For others, it's trite slogans.

    Are you referring to people who identify themselves as satanists—like the Church of Satan?

    yes
    satanism is a theistic belief system
    true satanism worships the self and self indulence
    more than the worshipping of satan
    but then there are different sects of satanism
    but all believe in a supreme being(satan)

    There are of course more than one satanic sects, but the "Church of satan" could be a good starting point.

    Yes, that would make it appear much less like something you read in some fundamentalist site's FAQ, or perhaps heard in the chorus of some atrocious Christian rock song.
