When we consider the three major texts of the three major religions, (The Bible, the Koran and the Vedas) we find that they are all blood sacrifice
religions, with centuries' long bloody histories of inhumane atrocities, holy wars, and human slavery committed in the names of their war gods.
Human and animal sacrifice was common throughout the ancient world, and the names and the definitions of the deities to whom sacrifices were offered
are too numerous to speak of here, many being the anthropomorphisations (the projection of human qualities onto inanimate objects or deities) of the
Sun, the Moon, various planets and the deifications of various human archetypes.
Satan, on the other hand seems to be an anthropomorphisation of a deity who is the fabricated discarnate enemy of the Biblical deity and who was
unknown in the ancient world, and who is an invention by the Christians of a "useful enemy;" a scapegoat upon whom they can blame all moral and
natural evil, and thus deflect the attention from the evil of their psychopathic, genocidal, primitive Bronze Age tribal deity and his sycophantic
Surveys suggest that around 20 to 25% of all persons suffering from serious forms of schizophrenia have been reported to be suffering from "religious
schizophrenia," and display common symptoms such as alleging that they are in direct communication with God, the gods, with daemons, angels, and
Abraham, Jesus, Moses and Mohammad are all clearly depicted in texts which show them to be classic religious schizophrenics. In the modern world, a
person such as Abraham who heard voices from a deity, telling him to sacrifice his son, would probably not be considered to be a normal criminal, but
to be a religious schizophrenic, and would probably be confined to psychiatric institution for his own safety and for the safety of others.
Even in the 21st century, 40% of US Christians are reportedly waiting for the return of a primitive and fictional first century Israelite who claimed
that he had discovered a miraculous cure for leprosy and blindness, and that he could raise the dead, and cure mental and physical illnesses by
"casting out demons;" he also claimed that his followers would have similar powers, including the power to cast mountains into the sea, simply using
the scientific method of praying in his name. These fantastical claims have given rise to the multi-billion dollar Jesus business where charlatan
evangelists make similar claims and prey on the disabled, the sick and the vulnerable.
Further, the Christians who wait upon their Second Coming are waiting upon a dictator who will initiate global war and the genocide of most of the
earth's population, apart from all true believers of course; this is really a kind of prophecy which was invoked by the Third Reich and by Adolf
Hitler, who just like the US Neofascist Christian political Right, were anti-Jewish, anti-Communist, homophobic, anti-feminist and genocidal.
The published diary of Hitler's medical doctor shows him to be syphillitic junkie, and of course syphillis, which was common in the ancient world, can
lead to neuro-syphillis which is a neuro-degenerative disease which literally destroys the brain; though of course many such creatures in the ancient
world may have been considered "prophets," due to their endless insane ramblings in an overly superstitious world.
Since there are so many people suffering from the effects of religious schizophrenia, it is unsurpising when they commit atrocities against other
human beings, and then claim "God made me do it," or "Satan made me do it," thus alleging that they were not personally responsible, and that they had
no power over their own will, and that the cause of the crime was some phantom in their mind.
Philosophical Satanists on the other hand, tend to be persons who have simply analysed the Biblical deity and concluded that he is a definition of the
enemy of humankind, and who mostly share the same judgement that Richard Dawkins does, that the tribal deity of the Bible is arguably the most
unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser;
a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent
(The God Delusion)"
To take an adversarial (Heb, Satan: adversary) position against the adherents of such a psychopathic inhumane deity, is entirely in accordance with
human nature and usually indicates that the "Satanists (adversarialists)" are suffering from being lovers of humankind, of human nature and that they
are essentialy ethical creatures who seek the salvation of humankind from the memetic disease of religion.
