I'm sure most people who would call themselves satanists are disgruntled teens who are trying some feux rebellion aginst their 'rents who go to church every Sunday. But Satan is by far the most interesting character in the bible... God is a one dimensional, A father figure who judges his children and spanks them if they do wrong. Jesus is very compasionate, but also very naive... eventually getting murdred by the same people who he was trying to redeem. Also a very simple character. But the serpet wasn't simple. I don't believe in the bible, or god or satan. But I have read the Bible... and I think genesis is by far the most interesting part of the whole book... God creates adam... a mindless drone... in gods own image. Man was supposed to be god's protege... Man was supposed to be a naive ruler of Earth... ruling the garden of eden in a formula of god's design... A powerful but empty destiny awaited man. But along comes the serpet, (satan) and offers mankind a choice to usurp his destiny and taste the fruit of divine knowledge... Why would god keep free will away from humanity? Wouldn't god want to spread his knowledge... was he afriad of man's power once he had free will? The angel lucifer faced perdition if he gave humanity the chance to redem itself through knowledge... But he gave us the oppurtunity anyway... and Adam accepted. Satan was willing to accept an eternity in darkness to give humanity a chance for enlightenment. I would argue that satan is the hero of the bible. And the savior of humanity. I don't believe in the bible... But if I did... I would be a satanist.
