Chaos is just as necessary as order. Chaos allows order to improve itself in the process of transitioning energy. Energy is always changing form, thus chaos. Parameters must be established to lend coherence to the process, thus order. The craziest thing about the universe is that it isn't automatically suicidal. Then again, who is to say the universe isn't failing in slow motion? Maybe we just haven't caught up to it yet. Either way, order is not truth, only part of it.
Which is why I object to calling order "truth". This demeans the value of chaos in the larger picture, and tempts certain minds to eliminate chaos entirely in a bid to establish complete control through order. Unfortunately, this is like making a planet stand still. At some point, something is going to break. And the fallout may be greater than what we can afford.
If a recognized religion endorses criminal behavior, can it be displayed for everyone, even children?
(and don't EVEN start about past crimes of Christianity! I'm talking about current "today" crimes)
I'm on the fence on this to be honest. Freedom of religion should be applied.
But doesn't Satanism endorse criminal behavior and criminal activities?
So they've completed a design for this Satanic monument...
Not too shabby. Not too shabby at all. Looks like a fine artistic piece to complement the display they've already established there. I'll be wanting pictures after they're done, that's for sure. Have you guys checked out the tenets this Satanic group promotes? Pretty impressive philosophies they've got going. I recommend some browsing, for those of you who dare to have a peek.
It should give you some context by which to determine your support or rejection of their inclusion in this whole "monument in honor of" trend.
Oh man I forgot about this thread. Yeah that is the design they submitted but something tells me that no monuments will become the reality there.
Since this similar requests for monuments have been made by a Hindu leader in Nevada, an animal rights group and the satirical Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Hey the place may become a tourist spot if they stick to the initial ruling. I really want to see a Flying Spaghetti Monster monument.
