I have a copy of The Satanic Bible and I've read it about three times. I agree with nearly all of it. However, I find it difficult to believe in magic, curses, etc. I cannot believe in something without evidence which is ultimately why I'm an atheist.
Anton Szandor LaVey claims that Jayne Mansfield died in a car wreck as an outcome to a spell/curse that he had put on Sam Brody. Now, I don't want to put down Anton LaVey in anyway because I have an absolute respect for him but my mind can't just seem to accept the whole magic thing.
What are your views on the subject and is it possible to be a Satanist and oppose the idea of the belief in magic?
