Your rationality is not unreasonable (no pun intended). It is rigorous and quite valid. However, there is an aspect of the occult which is not entered
into the computation.
Clearly, as was sort of agreed upon in another thread (actually I agreed with myself, quite practical and necessary to do in sorting through this kind
of an intellectual mess) that Crowley did not live on for over a hundred some years and cross dress to marry Bush 41. See thread here:
It is somewhat impractical to analyze issues across two threads, so this is why I am linking to that other one. However, they are related but the
other thread more specifically addresses the point which has you aghast. It should clarify the issue and you will see that the logic there does not
defy logic as you had thought.
What this thread has, that the other does not, is that in its title it refers to Isis, which is an ancient religious being which places emphasis not
just on the identities involved but on the pseudo-religions practices of Crowley and the Bushes. I am not sure how Isis is related to satanic
practices, but there is little wiggle room to be able to claim that Crowley wasn't a satanist. By his own account, he met the devil in person after
being introduced in Cairo by his wife who at that occasion had her first channeling experience. He called him LAM and said he was Satan. This
dimensional being (meaning that he was a spirit entity without a physical body) revealed to him that he was the chosen one, the Anti-Christ.
It seems clear that Crowley's deepest wish from that time on was to be as entirely possessed by the devil as possible, to finally merge with him and
become the Anti-Christ. What some people won't do to escape the abject anonymity of their existence? Regardless of the loftiness of his motives, he
claims to have learned satanic magic directly from the devil through his wife's channeling and to have engaged in transmitting this black magic by
his books and through occult followings. This included ritual rape in which the sexual aggression heightened the magic power of his spells during the
agony of his victims, and he discovered that innocent young boys were the most effective carriers of magic performance when tortured to death in
sexual assault ceremonies.
Crowley claimed that several of his own children were utilized in this manner, as the damage from incestual attack is greater and heightens the
magical powers of the murder ritual. He highly recommended to satanic followers to use their own children, or others if none of your own were at hand.
This, according to the head of the Los Angeles FBI, accounts for a great number of child disappearances in the United States and elsewhere in the
world. There is a large satanic following in the USA and overseas through dedicated secret organizations, as well as at the summit of other groups
such as the highest levels of Freemasonry where actual integration of satanism starts at the 32nd level of the Scottish Rite (I'm not sure at what
level it starts in the York Rite).
You can understand that this give the Satanist considerable power over all those beneath them in the hierarchical order of these organizational
pyramids. Every lower level Freemason, or member of other similar organizations, has a duty of blind obedience to their superiors. They are of course
masters of deceit (isn't the devil the crafty sly deceiver?) and they hide their sick motives behind humanitarian appearances and pay lip service to
lofty ideals of constructing the ideal society. However, the reality is far different. They believe Lucifer is GOD and all other religions are false.
So, to get back to our story, Crowley was an honorary Grand Master of just about every Freemasonry and Occult group in the world. He boasted that he
was the top dog and called the shots in so many of these orders that he couldn't couldn't keep track, I saw a photo of his oodles of degrees.
