Any guidance on these questions would be much appreciated (links or written responses)

How does Satanism differ from Atheism and Humanism? From what I've read-there seem to be many similarities, although Atheism is merely a definition. I'm attempting to sort this out. Satanism is more ceremonious-but that isn't expected, from what I've read. Also, there are rules and sins outlined for Satanists, much of which seem to be common-sense/logic-based to me.

One more question: when eugenics is discussed, it is mentioned that Satanists seek to mate the best with the best-source: (http://www.churchofsatan.com/Pages/Feared.html) is it considered acceptable to voluntarily refrain from reproducing as a Satanist, regardless of ones genetic makeup?

Thanks!

Is part of what you've read The Satanic Bible, and not merely online documents? If so, you should have the answers right there.

To you, perhaps. To many others, not even close. Not so common is sense, unfortunately.

Yes.

"Irregardless" is not a word. If anything, it is redundant.

Of course. Everything about being a Satanist is voluntary, and you seem intelligent enough to have figured that out.

When the coat no longer fits, however, it's time to find another label.

Thanks Magister Paradise. Sorry for the 'irregardless' slip, but better that than than 'believe' or 'belief' anyday!

Thanks Magistra Nadramia-so often it is looked upon as a disservice to humanity by others and not merely a personal choice.

It is advised that you address high ranking members of the Church of Satan by title - it can be considered disrespectful to address High Priestess Nadramia as merely "Peggy."
