    Default The Church of Satan

    To some people Anton LaVey was a genius, some think he was a madman. What do you think?

    I think he was pretty much an average guy. I just finished reading The Satanic Witch, and it seems basically a lot about psychology. I really enjoyed it, I think it was a great book. I think LaVey was pretty much just picking up on stuff most people don't, and that makes certain people think he's crazy.

    smart guy with a small hint of nuts

    satanism is actually a sect started by a former carney named Anton Zander LaVey. Yes, a former carney. The basics of Satanism, in a nutshell, are worship thyself. Even LaVey was pretty tongue-in-cheek about his own religion. but at end of the day thats what it all is self preservation right? so smart i thinks

    I agree with WretchedS.
    LaVey was a smart guy who believed in different things than other people.
    He is just a writer that knew alot about psycology and that made a style of a new religion that does not worship god or satan or heaven or hell.

    LaVey was a visionary that just happened to be at the right place and the right time. His ideals were and are radical even by todays jaded standards, self worship is a high honour that puts the religious ZEALOTS in their place. He was one of the greatest satireist and philosophers of this era in my opinion!

    people think he was crazy because he spoke of something that was new and people then couldnt comprehend. But what he said made a lot of sence but people are put off, even today, because of the name "satanism"

    not many other people thought that way when it was wrote, and even the people that did couldnt have spoke so well, if you've seen him publicly speak, you'll know what i mean.

    Default RE: The Church of Satan

    Personally...in regards to Anton LaVey and The Church of Satan, I do not agree with a lot of it.

    I can see how it could work for some people, but it's not right for me.

    I know Satan is supposed to be a symbol in this - but it's basically "The Church of Me," rather then "The Church of Satan."

    Still, amazing man for his time, and I think he opened it up a little more for Satanism to be accepted? Of course not all the way, as there's still a ton of people who just won't accept it...but it seems better off now then it used to be at least in that regards.

    dolliesque i think that you closest to the matter of which he was trying to point out, which to my knowledge and some others is self preservation. for instance you cant call satanism humanism; because that would be the course you can take in college.
