i wanted to ask whether any of the magic side of satanism had any truth to it, i agree entirely with the Church of Satan's philosophy and ideals but im not so sure about the magical side of things.

Only you can validate and determine if Satanic Magic is what it claims to be.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "any truth to it". You may want to re-read the Book of Belial. Magic is ultimately about seeing desired changes in accordance to your own will. To ask for external validation first is rather missing the point.

At any bookstore or internet store that carries The Satanic Bible.

And all the essays at the Church of Satan website.
