If satanists don't believe in satan, then why do they call themselves satanists and say "hail satan"?

Just wondering. The religion never made much sense to me.

  • anon 9:53 you are extremely WRONG! Satanist do not worship the devil. only theistic Satanist worship the devil, and they are not the mainstream or majority in satanism.. satanists are actually atheists. They don't worship ANY God or Devil. The word 'Satan' comes from the Hebrew word for "adversary" and originated from the Abrahamic faiths, being traditionally applied to an angel. Church of Satan adherents see themselves as truth-seekers, adversaries and skeptics of the religious world around them. They aren't against God because they don't believe in him.. they are against religious oppression because they believe it doesn't allow them to be free to learn and prosper as ones self.

  • basicially all satanism is, is the an anarchy of religion.. really people do some research and stop calling something something that it is not before your ignorant minds continue to judge someone you obviously don't have any knowledge of.

    I dont think it's ignorance, more like uneducated in that matter. I mean as a christian, i have to admit that i never researched satanism, because quite frankly, the name puts a little fear in me, lol. It just sounds like you worship satan. I guess we all just need to research a little bit of everything so that we dont mislabel anyone.

  • I dont think it's ignorance, more like uneducated in that matter. - Sweety, that's the same thing. Ignorant is uneducated...

    Now, to the questions. Satanists do NOT worship Satan, and many of them do not believe in Satan. The point is what Satan represents. He represents the opposite of many of todays religions and religious theories. When they say Hail Satan, it's not that they are paying homage to Satan himself, but that they are paying homage to what he stands for... Freedom!
