I really like your posts Xul. I appreciate the sarcasm, because it makes it makes me laugh. Not saying honestly what you say doesn't bring truth.. Funny to hear someone who learned British English on this forum, aside from those who are actually British English speakers.
Here is a thought from Bob Dylan/ the media :
You may be an ambassador to England or France
You may like to gamble, you might like to dance
You may be the heavyweight champion of the world
You may be a socialite with a long string of pearls.
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You're gonna have to serve somebody,
It may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.
Although true--ish.. WHY? Serve oneself and look after other people afterwards.
What I love about Satansim is, the idea. The adversary, the true meaning of Stan/Satan.
It is not about following, or even leading. It is about being. Who the fuck doesn't want to live, and live to the fullest. Even a nihilist wishes happiness. This is a carnal and obvious life need, some people need someone else to tell them how to do this. Some guy in the sky (Abrahamic), some guy who did it before (Buddist), another chance (Hindu), No Gods to lead you to a river (Shinto), etc etc.
We have ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LIFE. Realize this, know there is no fairy tale after. If you damage your body it is not something anyone can say something about, it might be stupid but it's your fucking life. If you want to be stupid and waste your life prothesizing, worshiping do so. You are just a moron for doing so. We have a magic of will, if we so choose to use it. It is not mystical to me, but a logical magic. The world is what it is. We may never truly get it. There are things we know from thousands of years of observation though.
We have no modern philosophers, besides the self proclaimed ones.. and honestly looking at Mel Brooks' History of the World it would be the closest I can see. A stand up comedian. They are the only ones allowed to speak their mind whether it be racist, sexist, ageist, etc. Our modern philosophers are comedians.. and I believe Carlin was the best of our time.
Sorry I ranted waaay too much hope this will help further the discussion.
