Anton LaVey for the most part states this thruout his writtings, and i have read numerous times how he was continually asked during his life if he believed in a literal Satan, as always he said read "THE" book!

He did not as far as i know believed Satan as something to be worshipped, we worship ourselves and see Satan as already stated here by another forum member as a force of nature, and as LaVey also has stated numerous times to use the name SATAN is FUN and gets a charge out of people and defintly grabs there attention whether it be in a positive or negative way....Anton LaVey was just way to cool
