Default So Atheists are really Satanists?

LINK (it works this time)


"One of the main tenets of the faith is atheism. Not just a disbelief in God but also in the devil or Satan. Satanists believe God is an invention of man and instead deify themselves."

To borrow Under Pressure's approach....

I wouldn't say atheists are satanists. Satan most definitely believes in God. He doesn't worship him, obviously, but he damn sure is aware of His existence.

That makes far more sense to me then what the article was saying. But why call it satanism if deifying ones self?

Read the article. According to it, the Satanists don't believe there's a devil either.

"One of the main tenets of the faith is atheism. Not just a disbelief in God but also in the devil or Satan. Satanists believe God is an invention of man and instead deify themselves... According to the official website of the Church of Satan: "We Satanists are thus our own 'Gods,' "

Obviously, that begs the question "Why have a religion named after someone you don't believe in," but i didn't name it or join it, so I guess it doesn't need to make sense to me.

But according to the actual NY based Church of Satan....some Satanists don't believe in Satan as a deity at all just as a symbol of individuality and independent thinking.

I'd say that in bold represents a huge amount of the atheists who post here.

So where did the confusion begin and who is misrepresenting their beliefs...or lack thereof as the case my be?

I just found it very intriguing that they would claim an atheistic viewpoint while their belief system seems to be based on a deity.

I will have to assume this is offensive to those who truly recognize no deity.

why not ? believe what you want ..but don't mock other religions [of course islam ain't a religion ]
so the mocking and poking fun at others has a hint of satanic activity
