Does the Church of Satan have any belief about life before um, life? I ask because I was pondering the statement that, "Satanists are born--not made." If we didn't exist prior to our birth how could we be "born" a Satanist?

Thank you for any consideration or time given to my question. I am always pondering the possibility of some kind of existence prior to birth and wondered if there is any official stance on it from the Church.

Hail Satan!

No.

You don't understand the statement. Saying someone is born a Satanist is similar to saying someone was a born mathematician, or born leader, etc. It is describing "Satanist" as a hardwired personality type.

There is NO reason or need to resort to spiritual or metaphysical BS to coherently assert "Satanists are BORN not made."
