In the Satanic Bible, Anton LaVey states that "God" is the balancing factor in nature, I get the impression that this factor has sort of a "dark" (if you will) vibe to it.

I consider myself a night owl, and find solace during the nighttime hours more than I do when the sun is out.... And to me, the world just "feels" so different at night, it's like the lack of light makes everything exhume such a different "force". It's quite electrifying to me. cool

Now, since I feel this way, but I don't believe in it as an entity that has any bearing on my life, can I still be considered a Satanist by CoS standards? I can't help but worry that this thought, which certainly not theistic, could possibly be seen as "hogwash".

I realize that there are some in hear that claim Satanism, but have deistic or even agnostic tendencies (I found this out after a rather strenuous affair with this board's search function). I don't know how common this is as a whole, but I did find it rather fascinating considering my views on something such as this "essence" in life that I feel.

Thank you for your time, as I realize that I have a propensity to ramble quite a bit!

Ave Satanas!

If you prefer the night to daytime then I suggest you work the night-shift.

I see no bearing the choice would make on whatever concept of God you choose to accept.

>> I realize that there are some in hear that claim Satanism, but have deistic or even agnostic tendencies <<

I've seen that myself and I can't speak for those people but since The Satanic Bible is quite clear and absolute in its atheistic stance I think what they espouse is highly misleading and misrepresentative.
