I've read the Satanic Bible cover to cover, and the thing that intrigues me is that most of the theology covered is using the Christian Church and philosophy to prove their point. What does Satanism say about Islam and how does Satanism prove Islam false?

Islam is a Religion of the right handed path (as christinaity is) - so i guess the answer is obviously.

xianity is just an example, albeit a rather prolific one.

I suggest you re-read TSB, and pay closer attention.

You know what the difference is between Christianity and Islam as far as Satanism is concerned?





...me neither.

Islam is mostly the mutant child of Judeo-Christianity. So it's not a big leap to say that Satanism is in opposition to Islam, it's just that Islam was not such a prevelant factor when Anton LaVey formulated Satanism.

In fact there are Islamic writings out there which attack Satanism because of the fact that Satanism is in staunch opposition to Islam without really using the religion's name.

Well, in TSB, most of the attacks to Christianity are aimed towards the Church, which is just a swirling vortex of hypocrisy. I am talking about prevalent thought in context of belief, such as the Qur'an. There is a challenge in it to find one error, just one error. I've been studying this topic for some time and it has amazed me to find that this challenge has stood for 1400 years.

When I said cover to cover, I meant everything in between. Duh.

Islam can be called a spawn of Judaism, but so was Christianity. The thing is is that they all have altered schools of thought, i.e. the Jews believe they are God's chosen people and always will be, Christians believe that God is three beings in one and that Jesus is their God, while Muslims believe that Muhammad is the last prophet of God.

Islam condemns the Christian Church, so all arguments in TSB relating to the Church are not valid for Islam. Furthermore, just because LaVey wrote a statement saying 'Right Hand religions are wrong' does not hold up. All claims should be backed with sufficient evidence.

Since Satanism to you guys is the best, it should be easy to prove Islam false.

If what you are trying to say is that "When another religion is mentioned in The Satanic Bible it is usually Christianity," then I can understand how you would see it that way. Certainly there is very little mention of Mohammed or Allah.

It is important to remember the context in which the book was written. It was not written in a culture where Islam was particularly popular, or even acknowledged as a religion by the general populace.

It is not the point of The Satanic Bible to "prove" anything false, history does a good enough job of that on it's own. I don't believe that it is a book designed to "pick on" anybody, rather it is the written embodiment of a philosophy that has been around for a very long time.


The Satanic Bible is not a study in comparative theology.

The Church of Satan stresses study. Seeing as you currently have the inspiration, why don't you hit the books and find all the answers you are looking for regarding this "issue". No one can work harder for you than you.

I'd like to apologise for my last post. I thought you actually had a serious question and were looking for opinions.

Since you put it that way...

You must be right. I guess Islam must be true because we can't prove it wrong, and since you've been studying it for some time, you probably know what you're talking about.

Here I've been relying on stupid things like "history" and "logic" when the whole time when it really just comes down to being a theological dick-measuring contest.

We should really be spending all our time arguing religion with every anonymous stranger on the internet who doesn't like what we believe. That's the way Allah wants. We Satanists must be so stupid not to have seen it sooner.

Now thanks to you we have all seen the error of our ways and are converting to Islam. Seriously -- it's on the internet so you know it's true.


I'm off on my HAJ now... Salaam Aleikum, and may Allah not shit in your pudding!

What makes or breaks any religion (or philosophical school, or scientific theory, or whatever) is almost never an actual error. It's an incoherence; something that just doesn't make much sense unless you already assume it. (Note that this makes it very easy for believers to casually dismiss criticism; "You haven't really found an error." They only understand fallacies and observed inconsistencies to be errors. But that is not all there is to rationality; I challenge you, for example, to find one "error" with the theory of ether.)

In the Qur'an (as with Jewish and Christian tradition), that incoherence is found in the proofs of God and his revelation. The Qur'an explicitly refers to philosophical proofs of God's existence, on which its legitimacy depends -- namely, the Argument from Design. The Argument from Design states that the world is too glorious to have arisen by its own power, and must have been designed. If you commit to this notion, there is no way to argue it; if you don't believe it, there's no way to be persuaded of it. No matter how complex the universe turns out to be, there's no specific point at which we must logically say that it's too complex to be causa sui. How could you prove that our failure to understand the universe is not simply a failure of our own imaginations to conceive a self-generating system of that complexity? The history of science shows how what was formerly considered magical or beyond explanation can be found to have earthly causes.

Even given a designer, God's act of creation and God's special intervention in the form of revelation are two different things. How do we judge a prophet? Supposedly we're given "signs" or "miracles". But what counts as a miracle? Only something we don't know how to explain. The "miracle" of Muhammad was that he could recite better than any literate poet of earthly inspiration. How could you ever prove that? How could you prove that it's not just a failure of our own imaginations to conceive a natural cause?

We are not convinced. We have been given no logically compelling reason to posit an intelligent creator or a prophecizing god. So we've answered spiritual questions in another way, to our own satisfaction. We tend to find them more intellectually satisfying, because they don't posit what can't be proved.

As per the Qur'an 3:21, you've conveyed your message, and can now leave.

Anybody who reads the Koran and thinks there isn't a single error in it, is either a blind fundamentalist or doesn't have any idea what the word "contradiction" means. If the "challenge still stands", I don't kid myself into thinking it's because the Koran is all true. It's obviously a case of back peddling and trying to resolve different passages by stretching the metaphors. Xtians do it all the time with their own scriptures. Muslims are no different.

ANY contradiction can be masked if you put enough imagination into it. I could say "Well, this book says 1+1=1, and not 2. This isn't false, because if I take one drop of water and add it to another drop of water, I still get one drop of water." If you're so gullable as to accept things like that, then you have no concept of objective reality. And people who have no sense of objective reality, yet are trying to push their religion AS the one objective reality, are hypocrites.

>When I said cover to cover, I meant everything in between.

It was an obviously sarcastic rhetorical question. Duh.

>Muslims believe that Muhammad is the last prophet of God.

If you even know THIS much about Islam, then why are you even asking what Satanism has to say about Islam? Compare statements like this with what you read in The Satanic Bible, and it should be obvious that the two religions are diametrically opposed on core beliefs. Islam is no less anti-Satanic than Xtianity, or Buddhism for that matter.

>Islam condemns the Christian Church, so all arguments in
>TSB relating to the Church are not valid for Islam.

True, but if you even just read the 9 Statements (which is what, the first page after the introduction?) it's obvious to anybody of even normal intelligence that the two are completely opposite religions.

>Furthermore, just because LaVey wrote a statement
>saying 'Right Hand religions are wrong' does not hold up.
>All claims should be backed with sufficient evidence.

Ohhhh....so THAT'S it. You're here to try to debate.

We were just hanging out here, minding our own business, until you showed up. We have no agenda trying to "prove" our religion to others. Therefore, if you claim the Koran is "true", the burden of proof is on YOU. There's no denying this. I'm feeling just fine without this "prophet of God" bullshit in my life. If you're insisting that my well-being depends on the belief in the existence of one of your imaginary friends, then that's a bold claim that you'll have to prove to me.

Ave Satanas!

I laugh my ass off this post is soo damn funny - Satanism is not there to bring the prove that Islam is false also it is not there to just attack Islam or christianity - it might attack these two but without any purpose The issue is neither about true or false nor about right or wrong - if you cannot see this then you are not a satanist ( obviously ).
