  • Do I believe Satanism exists? Yes, I dated a Satanist, nearly married him. Now, do I believe it's anything like the movies show it to be? That's different. Hollywood generally confuses Satanism with Devil Worship, however they are in fact two separate things. Devil worshipers Christian of sorts, in that they believe in the Devil and Jesus and YHWH, and have decided to follow and worship the Devil. Satanists however are usually either Atheistic or Pagan in nature, they do NOT worship the Devil, and the vast majority don't even believe in one. So, like every other Pagan or Atheistic belief system Hollywood has to criminalize it by making it in to something evil, when in fact the reality of it is far more normal than most expect...

  • Which kind - atheistic satanism or Christian-based satanism where they actually worship the construct of the biblical Satan?

  • Yes satanism exists, No pop culture such as movies and TV etc generally are not portraying it accurately.

  • While there are people who practice it, that doesn't mean what appears in pop culture is congruent with reality. For example, the members of Slayer range from Christian to agnostic. The act is exactly that - an act.

  • Just like everything else that Hollyweird and the media does, it is usually wrong.

    And for the record, I not only believe, but I KNOW they exist.
