Hello all,

I guess I'm sort of new to Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan but I'm finding this world very appealing as an atheist and as I share many of the same philosophical ideas that Mr. La Vey had.

I'm sitting here watching the DVD "Satanis: The Devil's Mass", which I'm sure many of you have seen and I'm wondering: why do Church of Satan members perform spells and curses if they do not believe in metaphysical powers? I mean, you're not addressing your petitions to God or Satan because they don't exist, but do you believe you're asking for someone's help in cursing people?

I'd appreciate it if someone can shed some light on this topic for me.

Thanks a lot!

Have you read The Satanic Bible yet?
