Great thread, I'm enjoying the read. Mostly because (no offence to the OP) this is old news to those who have researched Satanism. I have but only
briefly. In short...Satan represents us humans and the primal but still relevant today, human essence. Basically, we are what we are and we should
embrace what we are, not what "God" tells us we should be. Satanism chooses Satan as the only entity that states that humans are nothing more than
another animal, and animals do what animals do. They kill for food, fight to the death and care about survival and keeping the species alive. We as
"civilized" humans think, and have been told by religion, that we are better than that. We should not kill, envy...we should follow rules that no
other animal will. We are supposed to have compassion even for those who don't deserve it.
What religion teaches (to some degree) and some of the rules we put on ourselves are actually destroying us as an animal species. As viewed as an
animal...we should kill those who attack us. We should allow the weak among us to die to allow the survival of the strong. Simple science...if you
allow "sick" genes to continue to be bred into the population, you weaken the population. That kinda stuff...OF WHICH I DON'T AGREE
So Satan as the good-guy, or our ally, is very accurate. Now...I'm not suggesting we go anarchy and act like animals, but Satan is the "God" of
what we are, God is the "God" of what we strive to be...but usually fail. At least as a whole.
There was a story I read a long time ago about a lion adopted by a family. It became a beloved family pet but ended up killing one of the children.
The last line of the story was "He was a good lion" implying he was good at being a lion, not that he was "good".
