    Has anyone ever met a Satanist ? I've met very weirdo cultist known to man, but never a Satanist. They must be very rare or they really don't exist or they are in hiding.

    No, Satanists real. There is a Church of Satan. They have a website if you google. It was started by Anton Lavey who published the Satanic Bible around 1969. I don't know anything about their method of worship, and I wouldn't want to.

    I used to work for a satanist. As far as I know, they're not into the animal sacrifice stuff of urban myth. Basically, satanism is a philosophy of the self, like hedonism in a way. While Christians exalt the virtues of self-sacrifice, satanists exalt the "virtues" of selfishness.

    I always imagined Satanist as a bunch of ex hippies looking for a strange thing to be involved with. Or some Goth kids going nut's with the spooked out scary deal Who could take it seriously ?

    I'm not sure you can say that about all of them Epi. Every now and again you hear stories of such animal sacrifices. Of course you then hear people then say that it was really aliens who came down and mutilated the animals instead, but that's for another thread.

    Doesn't that make Forbes Nash ('a beautiful mind'😉 the modern day Satan?

    Well, the Church of Satan was founded during the hippie-cult days in San Francisco around the late 60s. They are not the stereotypical people that others think they are. They don't have horns and hooved feet. One could be working in an office cubicle alongside a Satanist. They generally believe in self-indugence, are selfish, and believe that life is to be lived by whatever makes one happy, sometimes at the expense of others. They do worship Satan, however. Satanism is a serious practice not to be taken lightly. Check out their website to get a more definitive explanation.

    yeh, i met one once, quite a sincere lady, when i was incredulous at her affirmation, she showed me a tattoo on her arm, and there it was, a large satanic emblem. i would have talked to her more but it was freezing.

    Not me. You should go to different night spots, or are you writting a book on "weirdo cultists" and are lacking the final chapter on Luciferians?

    Assuming your question is serious:

    They have a lot of web presence and history. They are real but with lots of factions so I understand. Their are lots of pseudo satanists such as witches etc who don't realise who they are worshiping.

    Satanism is a nasty and dangerous activity usually involving levels of initiation into greater truth, which is more about revealling who they are actually worshipping - by then it is too late to extricate themselves without contravening the oaths and curses they have made.

    I knew a LaVeyan Satanist once (yes, there are many different kinds of
    Satanism). Being LaVeyan satanist he was in fact an atheist, using Satan
    more as a symbol of the selfish urges of man than anything else. He
    believed that there exists no real concious supernatural powers (hence
    any sacrifice to Satan would be in vain and a meaningless waste). He
    would pursue his personal interests and desires first and foremost. His
    ideology drove him to be extremely kind and caring toward his friends,
    but brutally ruthless toward his enemies.

    In my view, this is no more interesting than socialising with a mere
    animal, so naturally we lost contact (though never would I make myself
    his enemy without great cause, mind you).

    I have befriended a few snake handlers. It's not my thing, but I'm interested in learning what makes them tick. This spring I am going out with some to help them collect the snakes.
