The word "Satan" comes from the Hebrew word "sataan" and the Arabic word "shaitan", both of which mean "adversary". It became popular during the medieval era and was used to refer to members of society who failed to conform to what was acceptable at the time. For example, people who behaved aggressively or inappropriately in public were referred to as Satan. Because of the definition and usage of it, the term was adopted into Christianity to refer to the devil. Due to the slight change in definition, the practice of saying social undesirables were Satan changed to accusing them of being devil worshipers or Satanists.

The word "Satanist" is no longer associated to worshiping the devil--not among younger generations anyway. It now refers to people who are aggressively atheist. The reason for this is that some people who are pressured about religion get very defensive about their choices. The result is some extremely hostile and adversarial behavior. Satanists are opposed to organized religion and feel that people should make their own decisions in their lives.

Satanists use Satanic terminology in reference to the Hebrew word for adversary, not the Christian word for the devil.

buncha tard-asses who want to be atheists but run around dicking up the place while still being able to bitch and whine about how misunderstood and smarter than everyone they are like it's the fucking 40's or something.
non-satanist - "so do you worship satan or what?"

satanist - "WHY DOESN'T ANYONE UNDERSTAND THAT I DON'T ACTUALLY WORSHIP SATAN??? HOW ON EARTH COULD YOU IDIOTS THINK THAT AFTER I ADOPTED A NAME HISTORICALLY USED TO DESCRIBE THE ACT OF ACTUALLY WORSHIPPING SATAN??? FUCKING STUPID CHRISTIANS!"

Some of the coolest people in the world.

People who arent afraid to admit that they have urges and needs that are "devilish".

They are their own god and rule over themselves. Its up to them what is right and wrong and don't let restrictive religon guide them.

A whole bunch of ridiculous rebelling punks. Their fucked up religion was founded by fucktard called Anton LaVey.

Satanists thinks that they're their own god, and that they don't need to be "saved" and what not.

Satanists are typically teenagers, because they want to rebel against their parents, society, laws and rules, but there're actually many adult satanists, which makes their religion even more ridiculous. These adult satanists are even more fucked up than their younger counterparts.

Satanists are fucknuts and they hate christianity, which they view as subjugating and enslaving religion. Satanists wears black clothes, listens black metal (which sucks ass, btw), and just acts like a rebelling bunch of teenagers and idiots, what they actually are.

Most satanists are also faggots.
Normal person #1: "Hey, you heard that Mike is satanist?"

Normal person #2: "Yeah, i always knowed that there was some level of retardness in him..."

Normal person #1: "Me too. But it looks like we were wrong."

Normal person #2: "How? You like those satanists?!"

Normal person #1: "No. I mean he's even more retardned than we thought!"

Both: *Laughs*

Satanism can be divided into two main branches.

Theistic Satanism.
Aesthetic Satanism.

Theistic Satanism( also called Traditional Satanism) is the worship of Satan as a deity. It can come in many forms such as reverse christianity, which is thought to be the only Satanism. Reverse Christianity would consist of the satanist believing Jehovah exists as the bible god, and Satan as the christian devil.
Then there is a Satanism in which Satan is believed to be a modern name for other gods, such as Enki, Tiamat, Set, etc.

Sometimes, in rural areas, animal sacrifice DOES occur. However, the animals are then eaten or disposed of humanely.
Rarely, if ever, actual killings of humans happen. Usually, the killer merely uses Satanism as an excuse, and wasn't an actual Satanist.

Aesthetic Satanism is when a person uses Satan as a symbol instead of a deity. They use him to signify independence, self-indulgence, worshipping yourself as a god. And, basically, it's an excuse to act like the universe revolves around your head.

And to anyone who says Satanist are "retarded" or "Fags", someday, we'll all be laughing as your body rots six feet under. And yes, humans and all material came from star dust.
Mary and Matthew went to the church of satan and now act superior because they became laveyan satanist.

John and Joseph looked theisticsatanism.com and began worshipping Satan and were law- abiding.
