For the record, Satanism could be discounted in the way that Scientology is. Both are relatively new as, religions.
Is a religion title with social acceptance THAT important to you? If winning over some group was more important to me than being honest with myself, then I wouldn't have taken up the label of "Satanist" in the first place. Of course, if you DON'T identify as a Satanist, I'd have to wonder why you'd be on this message board in the first place.
Furthermore, anybody who pretentiously prides himself on being "pro logic" (something that militant atheists always seem to be patting themselves on the back for) should be aware of a little fallacy known as argumentum ad antiquitatem
. Go ahead and "google it" if you must.
Also it falls in line with everything that Atheists don't agree with. Such as Pseudo-science, paranormal, god figures and naming itself as a religion.
"Atheism" means absolutely nothing more than "no belief in deity". If you call anything more than the existence of deity "everything that atheists don't agree with", then you're making generalizations about atheists. A self-labeled "Atheist" who ignorantly assumes that I must be into "pseudo-science, the paranormal, and god figures" is obviously another one of those morons who hasn't done much research on my religion, yet claims to know all about it.
And what's with the capital "A" anyway? For somebody who claims to be afraid of the word "religion", you sure seem to want to glorify "Atheism" as being something structured.
In my mind, it's the better of both evils. I find no sense in following age old ideas of the origin of our species. I also don't feel it's necessary to live by a set of teachings other than self. Hence the language secular humanism. I'm still trying to figure out what marriage is good for other than a tax break.
It doesn't matter to me that you like Satanism more than Scientology. Satanism is a tool, not a cause (a fact that seemed to sail right over your head). I still have to wonder what the hell does creationism or marriage have to do with anything that you've said. As for "living by teachings", read this
As for commandments of your religions,
There's a reason why they're called "The Nine Statements" and not "The Nine Commandments". Not that I expect you to grasp that when you can't even grasp the basics, of course.
Atheists have a set of those too. It's not a sin not to follow them, but they are very good ideas. Such as separation of church and state. That's pushing it. Morality seems to be lost without religion in some people. I find that very sad. So in some cases it's actually better for religion to have somewhat of an influence on a nation.
Looks like that you aren't an atheist then by your own warped definitions, since you don't obey their "Commandments".
So what the hell is your question anyway? Did you just post this to the wrong section? (Feel free to use that as an excuse even if you didn't!)
