Question as I'm writing a book about Satanism V. Humanism LaVey (influenced by) Crowley (influenced by) Lovecraft and would like people's thoughts on such idealogy to include in a section of my manuscript.
I am but a humanist, a poet, cynic, author of a mere two books, but want to know if people view LaVey as a fraud and a fake, or, evil, or influencial, or life changing with his views, did he use Crowley's "do what thou wilt" as ideas behind his philosophy, from Crowley who used his ideas from HP Lovecrafts Necronomicon?
The Satanic Bible - read it? like it? still got it? any interesting stories, thoughts, comments releating to it?
Much appreciated if anyone would like to submit their reasonings, please therefore email firstname.lastname@example.org
