Personally I think the whole eye for an eye thing is rather stupid. What I'd prefer to think about is how a woman with enough strength and energy to respond to my one stroke with a thousand might respond to a kiss!

One book worth mentioning is Howard Bloom's The Lucifer Principle . First of all, I want to make it very clear that this book is by NO means about Luciferianism. The Lucifer Principle examines how nature is inherently brutal and most certainly does

General Satanism Discussions
A common theme when the subject of eye for an eye comes up, whether here or in a more plebeian setting, is that everyone assumes that the only way to exact revenge on someone is to break their nose in front of a cop and get arrested and be no better,
General Satanism Discussions
For me, the question boils down to this: Are they worth the effort of revenge? A healthy, fulfilled ego can brush off quite a lot. Satan is a thick-skinned fellow. But if they have crossed the line, send the B-52s.

I do not openly wear my baphomet to class. My instructor may have glanced the baphomet on my phone lock screen or seen my post about a show I went to on FB. I not did tell this voluntarily to her but she asked me. I guess I made the mistake of being

I think we misunderstood each other! I wasn't disagreeing with any of the points you made above and in your original post, it was just that you seemed to be suggesting there was an essential difference between discrimination based on being a Satanist

I see your point concerning "rising above" the urge to seek revenge but, as you said, we ARE animals and sometimes it can also serve us well to just be what we are, being mindful of the consequences and risks. Constantly trying to transcend
General Satanism Discussions
I have two thoughts on this. -- The first, is that revenge does not necessarily lead to a positive end for me. If I were to say, have someone harm myself or a loved one or my property, and I were to strike back (physically in most cases) then I cou

I just got back from the gym. While there I realized that I am drastically overcomplicating my opinion. Let me try again: 8th Satanic Rule of the Earth: Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself. You are able to avoid t

A fine place to start is the recommended reading list over at the official Church of Satan website. You can't go wrong with that list.

Well, my karate instructors know I am a Satanist now. My head instructor asked me about it because she saw the baphomet on my collar. She took it upon herself to do "her own" research even though I asked her kindly to go directly to the &qu

Rand handled epistemology (how we know what we know) and ethics (a guide to action) and art quite well but her metaphysics sadly was stuck in the 19th century and is therefore unreliable. But the clarity that her considerations offered about art wer
