When I first read the Satanic Bible I remember immediately after i was done with it I went to the CoS website. The first thing that I saw was the Goat of Mendes looking straight through me. I couldn't remember any type of animal looking at me that way before in my life. I have made a conscious decision today to look at everyone I meet in that manner.

Even in primary school, I hated religion.



You know, I didn't actually hate religious studies; it always fascinated me. In fact, most things interested me at that age, I just wasn't taught in a way that was, in itself, interesting.

But with religion, I wondered how so many people could be intellectually coerced into doing something that they didn't necessarily agree with on all the basic levels. I found that an understanding of conventional religion was always helpful in understanding people per se and, subsequently, getting them to do what I wanted them to do.

Naturally, this continues into my current life.

The real problem is that social ideals are often dictated by religious ones; and this will continue until church is seperated from State (see Dr. LaVey's "Pentagonal Revisionism").

As much as having a text that allowed so many abstract ideals to become concrete for me, and having a name to put to my then developing views, I was glad to know that a man as simply eloquent as LaVey shared my opinions of life and society.
Though it was a sense of validation that LaVey and others felt the same way, the Satanic Bible also confirmed to me that I don't need the validation of others to define me or my sense of self worth.
Hail Satan.
A part of my character has often made things more complicated than they are. LaVey tore through rhetoric with lion's teeth and the bones of man's nature were laid bare to me. He supplied an equation for seeing things the way they are. With desire and self-determination some men and women can develop this power. This is one of my continuing endeavors, thanks in part to the Satanic Bible. The rest is up to the individual.
Hail LaVey.
Of course when I start answering a question like this one it becomes evident that a dynamic work like the Satanic Bible has the power to continually effect me as my understanding of myself and those around me grows.

My life was in deepest bowels of the filthiest latrine imaginable. After reading The Satanic Bible I was quite pleased to find that it was a book of reason and logic, and it showed me who I really was, the person I had lost to the mindless droning of the world around me. But in the time that has followed my "self" has blazed more proudly than ever. Reading that book was the best decision I've ever made in my life, second only to the descision of following it.

Praise the flesh!
Hail Satan!

You know, I just don't get it.

I've seen people say things like "until I read The Satanic Bible, my life was shit," or "when I read The Satanic Bible, I realized that my life was going down the shitter."

Frankly, if all that is true, I don't really consider said person a Satanist, because a Satanist wouldn't likely be in the metaphorical 'shitter of life'.

Call me crazy, but I think that finding yourself in the words of The Satanic Bible, doesn't equate to finding salvation.

My first thoughts after reading the book:

1, This is it, Iím finally home.

2, Oh dam it I must call myself a Satanist from now on.

3, I hate wearing black. Do I need to? Who cares, I wont (out of the ritual chamber of course)

I agree completely. While mistakes can happen and one might be unlucky enough to get into such a bad situation, The Satanic Bible is not the light to guide you out of it.

A Satanist would solve their problems even if they were not aware of The Satanic Bible.

Ok maybe I wasn't clear in my wording. I didn't find "salvation", I found a slap in the face that brought me back to reality. And by "following" I mean learning from and applying to general situations. And no matter what precations one takes, life can always find itself in the proverbial shitter rather quickly.

Hail Satan!
Praise my Ego!

Believe it or not, the very first time I read the Satanic Bible I got mad. The reason: it took me this long of dealing with shit before I came across someone of great import! I mean it was out long before I was born (1972) and I just got a copy in 2008!! Talk about blinders on.
