Not really a scape goat i was just wondering if you would see a "deity" known as satan where people do terrible things in his name as a vile and
treacherous monster and it seems you would, i just wanted to clarify that
"That which we evoke, we become.
There is no question that human and animal sacrifice ritualism has been commonplace throughout history and thus it is unsurprising that it occurs
today; in fact it would be surprising if it did not, particularly as it is demanded by the texts of the three major world religions (i.e. the Bible,
the Koran and the Vedas), all of which have deities who demand the sacrfice of blood.
This subject i dealt with, for example, in Crowley's "Magick in Theory and Practice," albeit partly satirically and entwined with his hilarious
Antichristian polemicism, and also in James Frazer's "Golden Bough," which has sections on ritualised "king killing," "god killing (geocide)" "god
eating (ritual cannibalism);" such beliefs have, of course, been entwined with Christianity.
Saturnalia, Deocide and the Scapegoat.
At the Roman festival of Saturnalia (currently "Chist mass"), 30 days prior, a handsome Roman youth would be chosen, dressed in purple and in royal
attire to resemble Saturnus; he would be treated as a god-king, guarded by soldiers and allowed to behave as a king and indulge in all manner of
passions, as his sexual preferences and whims suited; much like a modern Thelemite or humanist European. On Saturnalia he would cut his own throat on
the altar of Saturnus, and the festivities and orgiastic revelry would begin (ref: "The Scapegoat" section in Frazer's "Golden Bough").
This kind of Roman Saturnalianism only bears a remote resemblance with Laveyan philosophical Satanism and the Satanism of most modern spiritual
Satanists, who have removed the human sacrifice element; however the "Scapegoat," "god killing" and "god eating" beliefs are still very much a part of
the Biblical faith.
Even if there exists groups of people who perform blood sacrifice to a deity called Satanus or Set or Satan, one must bear in mind that, for example,
two of the world's most popular deities, Shiva and his wife Kali, were also human sacrifice deities and that as recently as two centuries ago, a child
would be offered every day as a human sacrfice to Kali at her Temple in Calcutta.
I have travelled throughout the Indian continent, and it is full of elaborate Temples, and tourists marvelling at how beautiful they are, and who are
mostly entirely unaware of their original purpose. This practice of the ritual killing of children continues today (see for example
), but it continues in secret, not in public.
We have come a long way from an era where religion was "publicly" entwined with human sacrifice, and in the modern world human sacrifice cultism
continues only in secret; nevertheless in the Western World, Christianity is a remnant of this tradition which still reveres the human sacrifice deity
of Abraham who allegedly incarnated in the fictional religious fanatic Jesus.
The Law and the Seven Signs
also and this might come as a suprise to you even tho i'm Christian and i use that word losely i can't stand alot of Christians there
hypocritical and only need to use the bible when it serves them and of course they twist the words to benefit them and every time you come up with a
theory that makes sense it's gotta be new age everythings new age or if you ever try to bring up a good concept that might be foreign to them it must
be from the devil and to be honest i find these Christians to be close minded part of the problem and in some cases sickening...
A "true" Christian would be a person who adheres strictly and fundamentally to the Judaic Law (the 613 laws) and the "prophets" as demanded by the
Jesus of the Gospels, and who would be a fake healer and fake miracle worker who adheres to the Seven Signs and to the teachings of Jesus, which
demand becoming a homeless, wandering, penniless, shoeless exorcist.
Bear in mind also that adherence to the religion of Jesus does involve the reverence of a psychopathic, human hating, blood sacrifice deity, and that
even of the first 10 of the 613 laws, that 8 of these laws are executionable offences (including the execution of person who work on Saturdays /
Saturn's day), and that the first two are genocidal offences, since entire tribes and nations who worship competing deities and who commit idolatry
are to be exterminated.
The Seven Signs
"He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My
name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means
hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
1: You must believe.
2: You must be baptised
3: You must be able to perform exorcisms.
4: You must be able to speak in new tongues.
5: You must be able to pick up serpents
6: You must be able to safely drink deadly poison.
7: You must be able to miraculously cure the sick.
You have many choices, including:
1: You join the ranks of religious schizophrenics and professional charlatans, such as Benny Hinn and Jim Jones, who have preyed on the sick, the
disabled and the vulnerable and who have fraudulently claimed to have the seven signs. Such persons of this ilk are not "hypocrites;" they are simply
vile subhuman creatures who are following the Biblical teachings and obeying their subhuman deity.
2: You simply "cherry pick and "quote mine" the Biblical texts to suit your own personal misinterpretations, beliefs and prejudices and make up your
own personal modernised form of Christianity, and then claim that this is the "true faith;." and thus personify hypocrisy.
3: You become a "Gnostic" Christian, and then you can ramble on incessantly about the interpretation of language and how nothing can be taken
literally, and how "executions for working on the Sabbath" should be interpreted as being tickled with a comfy pillow, and that only you are the one
true interpreter of the Hebrew and Greek texts in your own private langauge.
4: You can simply abandon the Biblical faith and join the modern world. You do not necessarily need to embrace Deism, agnosticism or atheism to do
this; you could just create your own personal concept of a deity as the spiritual Satanists do, but I tend to see Deism as a progressive stage for the
apostate Biblical fanatic.
There are of course numerous other religious options, and myriads of gods to worship.
Personally I am far to vain, and far too much a lover of my brothers and sisters (i.e., other human beings) to ever worship a god, sacrifice a child
to a god or even flatter and revere a god.
Since I consider myself morally superior to the gods and masters of humankind. I am quite comfortable with being the eternal enemy of humankind's
greatest enemy, God himself.
I am human. I exist. I think. I reason. I analyse. I criticise. I love. I lust. I accuse. I prosecute, I judge. I condemn. I villify. I am so much
more of a God than that bastard (he allegedly had no mother) God of the Bible, and his grovelling and morally subhuman acolytes. In eternity I shall
forever previal. I will not worship an unworthy god; thus my arrogance is premediated, impeccable and totally humanist.
