That is like trying to argue wether or not
<<RR..RR..RR.. GEEK ALERT RR..RR..RR..>>
..Wether or not Microsoft Windows will ever go away.. and Linux become the dominant operating system for computers! HAHA (Well it could happen.. but it will happen outside of the USA first).
IMHO.. as the old hardcore Xian generations turn to dust.. and the younger.. generations now coming into power.. there are a few considerations to take into affect regarding the possibility.
1. Xian church attendance will falter, thus churches (a business) will disappear. (This IMHO does not include back country churches.. I mean ones that are not dependant on any currency or outside support but the pulpit, bible and congregation).
2. People will most likely become (IMHO) Athiests first because of:
A. No time for church
B. No upbringing in a Xian based home
C. Loss of faith due to current world events or personal
Athiests of whom where at once Xians, will most likely gravitate towards some sort of belief system.. anything "supernatural" to keep thier minds in order.
Those who find that they need to have something to believe in, in private or not and are strong willed and strong minded might seek out Satanism.
Satanism really does exist around the world.. but most people use "Satanism" "Satan" as a word.. instead of the ideaology or reasoning behind it. Lets say like the word "FUCK"
For some Fuck is a declarative or misused word to represent anger or pain.. or something a group of people might yell out during a soccer/football game <<< joke. It is also for some VERY shocking to hear or read, esp in public.
For others Fuck might describe pleasure and happiness.
So atm it is all wordplay.
Because Satanism IS alive everywhere you look. Think of at least the following:
* "Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!" - Go to Wal-Mart in the USA on Sunday morning
* "Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it instead of love wasted on ingrates!" - Notice someone might be more prone to open a door for someone else, (at least I always hold open the door for people).. then to throw change at the homeless guy sitting outside .
The public is not educated, and those that are part of the "Herd mentality" will almost never change, unless something in thier lives dictate a change is needed. For instance:
Bob and his wife smoke 4 packs of cigarettes a day and have for over 25 years. Bob comes down with lung cancer, but it is too late, it has spread to all the nodes of his lungs and is chances of survival are null.
Bob dies several weeks later.
Bob's wife, quits smoking and spends her husband's $500,000 life insurance policy on benifits and public awareness to get other people to quit smoking...
So look at this enraged Xian
. Also notice at the end what it says in the type text. Try to wonder, would she ever proclaim herself a Satanist, even though (not a Satanist... ) SHE ACTS LIKE the spawn of Satan? (for horror movie and noveltie's sake).
So those of us who are true Satanists.. we will exist in numbers that no sheet of paper can show.. (Back off CIA). We are good people. Even if a Satanist saved a kid from a burning house and the media heard of it.. it (IHMO) would not be aired if it was mentioned that a "Satanist" saved that child, or anything regarding Satanism / a Satanist would be removed. But if it was Jerry Falwell who saved the kid, the media and the world would rejoice that such a great miracle of Xian life had happened.
The most ironic and greatest thing I would love to see is... a "Stigmata" of Xianity put on someone that is seen the world over and after the smoke clears they proclaim that they were a Satanist. I would bet you would get people converting left and right.. even though a Stigmata of Xianity has nothing to do with Satanic views and belief. (correct me if I am wrong).
Finally... if you want to see a "Satanic" world.. just look around you, it is already here. The truth is just buried in wordplay and those who pretend to be on both sides of the fence, I really think those are the true evil ones.. they do evil in the name of Satan then ask for redemption during Xian communion so they can do whatever they want. It is like a bank of self destruction.
So don't mind those people and don't try to proselytize those you think you can pull out of the Matrix. People can only figure it out on their own.
