Another newbie has entered! Thought i could do a little introduction, even if its not "needed".
I come from Norway and has lived here since i popped out in 1985. Norway is an absolutely beautiful country i think, but the extremely high taxes and way overpriced gas is about to drive me insane. I am at the moment living with my beautiful fiance and a furry creature (a Yorkshire Terrier) called Linus (named after Linus Torvalds). Yes, i am what people would call a geek, and not ashamed of it. I love to spend time with the misses and puppy. But also love playing video games, listening to music and watching a movie and exploring the world of Linux. When it comes to music i listen to Rock, Metal (and some sub-genres, yes, also Black Metal) and country (only the good 'ol stuff though). In the movie world i like pretty much everything except horror movies (some of the old ones are really good though). In the gaming world i am open to everything.
Like most Norwegians i have grown up in a christian family and spent many hours infront of a preaching teacher. Learning how wonderful and perfect that realigion is and that its the "only" way. My parents arent brainwashed, but my increasing facination for the dark side that started many, many, years ago has made them worried. And i was for a long time actually afraid to move away from the christian religion and express my disagreement. When i started listening to Metal and sang along i was afraid to sing the word "satan". I even remember not daring to sing "God Hates Us All" (from the SLAYER song "Disciple"). Kind of emberessing to admit that since i was 16 when it was released. And i must admit that when it all started i was even worried about what was going to happen with me. Would i end up in hell and for the rest of my life feel the wrath of god? It was like that for a while, but that time is long gone. At this point i know its stupid to think like that but thats how it was. I was even kinda nervous when i visited the COS website, so it took some time before i started exploring it
. My mom has finally realised that i am a normal bloke and isnt sacrificing kids and/or animals, i aint drinking blood and i have not had sex in the churchyard and/or burned down a church.
From the first time i started to actually read whats on the website i found myself to actually agree with it. I say "actually" cause i must admit that i belived all the articles and bullshit told by ignorants. But it also made me curious. Its of course all bullshit, and bad eggs that give it a bad rep is impossible to avoid. Even christianity and the catholics have those.
I have not read the Satanic Bible yet. Simply because i have spent the time trying to learn more before taking the next step toward beeing a COS member. So it will be ordered the next time money enter my bank account.
I am looking forward to spending more time here and i hope to be a contributing member. And when i learn more and find out it is without doubt the right thing for me i hope to be a contributing COS member.
The rambling must come to an end, right now!!!
So thats it. Enough about me. If you have read through it all i admire you
EDIT: On second thought it was a bad thread title, so i added "an introduction" to describe its content better.
