Atheistic Satanism / What is It ? by Lilith Wood
I’m often asked what atheistic satanism is . Many have never heard of it even though it is one of the most common types of satanism . I have even been told atheistic satanism can’t exist because satanism is a religion that veneers Satan . Therefore , I’m devoting my very first blog on this site , to identifying what atheistic satanism is and comparing it to other forms of satanism.
First , atheistic, also know as symbolic, satanism is not a religion ,it’s a philosophy . Because of the rituals and the symbolism within atheistic satanism we’re often categorized by society as a religion but this simply is not true .
We are first and foremost atheists which means we don’t believe in any type of deity or an afterlife ,although some atheists do believe that our energy survives the physical death of the body . http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2007/07/even-atheists-g/
The difference between an atheistic satanist and a regular atheist is we believe in the Dark Doctrine of Entropy .
This is not a supernatural force but a natural current that runs through all things and pushes the universe and evolution along toward it’s destiny .
I’m often asked why use the name of Satan if we don’t believe in Satan . This is easy to explain,although more than a few express difficulty understanding the concept of Satan as only an archetype . Atheistic satanists use the name Satan as our symbol because the name Satan in Hebrew means , The accuser,the adversary .
The character of Satan has always been adverse to and accusing of the excepted norms ,showing the way out of collective brainwashing and to true self awareness and enlightenment . This is what atheistic satanists strive to do . Expose religion for the collection of mind and life controlling myths they all are . To always question and challenge everything ,to accept nothing as truth,without first giving it a complete examination. This is why we use Satan as our symbol.
Our rituals are another subject that often comes up. For the most part atheistic satanic rituals are more like a form of self help instead of witchcraft . And many atheistic satanists don’t use rituals at all. It is not required.
Now for a brief comparison of atheistic satanism and theistic satanism . Theistic or religious satanism is a religion ,it is a left hand path religion . This means it is not in the same category as right hand path or white light religion,such as Wicca or Christianity. A theistic satanist has no qualms about exacting revenge upon a foe ,for example . Although they don’t go about spoiling for a fight .
Theistic satanists believe in a deity and often many deities as some mix the old Pagan gods and goddess with their satanism . They don’t usually believe in the biblical Satan but rather the Egyptian chaos god,Seth,Set,Sut etc. and the ancient Sumerian mythological character Enki .
The satanists who actually worship the biblical Satan are known as devil worshipers or inverted Christians. They are often not accepted by atheistic or theistic satanists .
The Yezidis, a sect of Devil worshippers, actually believe in god and that God is all-powerful, but also all-forgiving, and so accordingly feel that it is the Devil whom they must please, as he is the one who rules their lives while here on earth. They believe so strongly that God will forgive all of their sins once they have been given the last
rites, that they feel no need to concern themselves with the opinion God may hold of them while they live. Obviously,the Yezidis are not accepted by postmodern satanists.
There is a very interesting Cult of Black Wicca ,which I think is one of the only true forms of Wicca, known as the Kalimite Sect.They’re Wiccan Neo pagan Eclectics who also use European Satanism and African-Anerican Voodoo and Shamanism.
Another interesting aspect of the Kalimites is they use a great deal of daily life practice from the Amish. Hunting and raising as much of their own food as possible. They take great care to minimize the suffering of the animals taken for food. If only every religion would incorporate this humane practice !
You can learn more about this interesting and unique path from the anti-Reverend Retson Retap’s You Tube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/ChurchOfKali66619 and from the Church of Kali’s website http://www.churchofkali.com/
I have included several of their videos in the video section of this blog below.
