    You are right, you create a good interesting post and it has evolved, I like the take on worship of a deity, I understand worship in a different light as you, I believe to worship is to be thankful for the goodness that the deity bring to you, to build an altar, to have certain ritual and celebrations to bring those instance in which it has shown it helping goodness to, and ask it that it remain in my life

    That's why I never make anything official.

    Keeping a commitment is like having to keep all doors closed.

    I don't feel one can convert to LaVeyan Satanism. I was raised in a Catholic environment/home growing up. My father was a homicide detective, mother a stay-at-home mom & my folks to this day are still my best friends & have a wonderful marriage. However, we often differed on quite a few things. When I read the Satanic Bible by Anton Szandor LaVey it was like looking into a mirror, I had already been a Satanist & living the life, I just never knew what to call myself, or the philosophy I was living by. I've always had very right-wing conservative views on a lot of issues, minus religion & sex. In fact I'm currently enrolled in the local police academy too. However, I've never bought into the imaginary friend concept of God, or the Devil, etc. So, when I found out LaVeyan Satanism represented indulgence, not turning the other cheek, right-wing view points to a fault & atheism when it came to belief in God, or the Devil, I was sold/hooked! I hope you read LaVey's work(s) & gain as much knowledge as you possibly can from it. If this is the religion for you, then excellent!

    Hail Satan!

    Welcome to a rational understand of Satanism, continue to read and study not just satanism, but many other good books on atheism and chaos magic.

    It's good to see alot more people joining Modern Satanism, rather than heretical christianity.

    Good Luck, Hail Satan

    Wow, I'm such a hermit!
    Obviously, glimpses of society have not kept me up to date with much. Feeling seriously ignorant and out of touch with modern reality here... help me out; Nietzsche's works are considered "satanic literature"?

    "Modern satanism"; I do not even know what it implies. Is it something of concern to general public? Ought I get informed? Sorry, friends; I realise my prejudice here but I must confess, I don't much like the sound of it...

    What if Satanism presents the same problems as Christianity? Or would it, since you don't seem to have embraced "classical" Satanism?

    I want to understand the appeal of Satanism, both classic and modern. Who can help me with that?

    If you like easy answers and an unchanging 'truth', there will be little appeal at all.

    If you dislike the dark side of humanity, and try to rise above your animal nature rather than embracing it, there will be little appeal.

    If you walk against the current, regard spirituality as ******** and value study and doubt over worship and faith, maybe read further...
