Satanism, from contemporary individualism to the sub categories of MLO and left hand path...
Plain and simple, what do you all think about it?

Im curious to hear people share thoughts and ideas of this philosophy and let me start by saying that contemporary Satanism is very interesting since it focuses on building oneself spiritually.

Lets take an example like Jon Nodveidt's recent decision to end his life....
He killed himself and his band claims it was a ritual suicide, does this make his form of Satanism a religion because it has rituals or is MLO another form of interpreting Satanism?

I am a Theistic Satanist. I aww m mostly opposed to LaVeyan Satanism. It does have good good qualities to it, but I can't take it seriously. I am similar to Setians in a few ways I believe in something very similar to The Gift of the Black Flame, but I'm a Satanist. I do think there is an overwhelming presence of childishness in Satanism, partially as a result of The Church of Satan.

No one can take any Satanists seriously. Bronies carry more weight than Satanists.

Theistic Satanists literally believe in the existence of the devil. They're basically Christians who self identify as evil.

People continuously mold their own beliefs, whether rooted in religion or not, around their own existence and what they deem as valuable. As such, it becomes an individualized experience even if wholly exercised and practiced within the confines of a specific belief so, in this sense, one could argue all beliefs are driven by self-interest, as is existence itself. Why, then, dispute the value of one religion over another or the value of religion at all? Even the irreligious hold on to certain thoughts religiously, after all.
