The Church of Satan is a religious organization dedicated to Satanism as codified in The Satanic Bible. The Church of Satan was established at the Black House in San Francisco, California, on Walpurgisnacht, April 30, 1966, by Anton Szandor LaVey, who was the Church's High Priest until his death in 1997. In 2001, Peter H. Gilmore was appointed to the position of High Priest, and the church's headquarters were moved to Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan, New York City.

The church states that it does not believe in the Devil, neither a Christian nor Islamic notion of Satan. Peter H. Gilmore describes its members as "skeptical atheists", embracing the Hebrew root of the word "Satan" as "adversary". The church views Satan as a positive archetype who represents pride, individualism, and enlightenment, and as a symbol of defiance against the Abrahamic faiths which LaVey criticized for what he saw as the suppression of humanity's natural instincts.

The religion's doctrines are codified in LaVey's book, The Satanic Bible. The religion is materialist, rejecting the existence of supernatural beings, body-soul dualism, and life after death. Practitioners do not believe that Satan literally exists and do not worship him. Instead, Satan is viewed as a positive archetype representing pride, carnality, and enlightenment. He is also embraced as a symbol of defiance against Abrahamic religions which LaVeyans criticize for suppressing humanity's natural instincts and encouraging irrationality. The religion propagates a naturalistic worldview, seeing mankind as animals existing in an amoral universe. It promotes a philosophy based on individualism and egoism, coupled with Social Darwinism and anti-egalitarianism.[1]

LaVeyan Satanism involves the practice of magic, which encompasses two distinct forms; greater and lesser magic. Greater magic is a form of ritual practice and is meant as psychodramatic catharsis to focus one's emotional energy for a specific purpose. These rites are based on three major psycho-emotive themes: compassion (love), destruction (hate), and sex (lust). Lesser magic is the practice of manipulation by means of applied psychology and glamour (or "wile and guile") to bend an individual or situation to one's will. Wiki reference: [2]

Satanic Ideology

Satanism also intentionally panders to the atheist and scientific communities, as a recruiting mechanism for a far more nefarious agenda that serves the NAA. Satanic grooming methods manipulate those who do not understand the existence of consciousness existing without a physical body, or the consequences of giving energetic consent and authority to Satanic forces. There are many people working in our society who have the same ideological beliefs as those shared in common with Satanism, yet they are not thought of as criminals but are revered as powerful leaders in business, science and technology. Essentially, this is the socially engineered society in which we have been groomed into using the three layers of ego filter and psychologically manipulated to co-create in the materialistic Death Culture, which is an Anti-Soul Agenda. The primary main philosophies that interconnect throughout the different branches of Satanism include the following:

  • Service to Self, each person should do whatever they can to advance their personal power and influence in the world no matter what the cost, no matter what kind of harm is generated. It’s either you or them.
  • Moral Nihilism, there is no such thing as ethics or standards of right or wrong behavior, therefore as human beings we have the right to act upon our whims and base our actions accordingly.
  • Social Darwinism, the belief that survival of the fittest and the strongest will always prevail to rule, and the focus on personal needs and survival in order to gain rulership is required by any means necessary.
  • Eugenics, those that are most fit to rule are the top genetic specimens and thus, they decide how to propagate the future of the human gene pool, by deciding who lives and who dies.[3]

Eliphas Levi Baphomet

Eliphas Levi illustrated his concepts in the symbolic representation which he called the Baphomet in a book published in 1856, which is the horned devil, and this symbol is still used commonly today. A hundred years later, Anton LaVey and his atheistic Church of Satan adopted the Baphomet symbolism in 1966.

In Levi’s depiction of Baphomet, the goat-man is shown to be seated upon a black stone cube, portraying it with wings, breasts, and an emblazoned pentagram with an Islamic symbol of a lunar crescent on each side flank. This lunar and cube symbolism reflect the ancient sacrificial practices of moon goddess worship that directly connect to the spawn of the dark feminine satanic force of Black Lilith herself.

Sigil of Baphomet, Leviathan

Another depiction of Baphomet is that of the Sigil of Baphomet, wherein the horns, ears and chin of a goat form a pentagram surrounded by five Hebrew glyphs which spell the word Leviathan. In this context it is helpful to research the Beast Machine, Leviathan forces, and the Thothian Leviathans in the Ascension Glossary to find out why that is. To perpetuate the Baphomet Deception, it is further said to be the representation of a perfect human. Eliphas Levi also illustrated a magical symbol for the Tetragrammaton pentagram connected to the Yahweh Matrix, which he considered to be a symbol of the microcosm, or human being.

Gnosticism merged with Demonology

Gnosticism has been intentionally associated with the symbolic images of the Baphomet, an anti-life reversal of the dark mother principle, manifested through the lower 2D demonic hierarchies that answers to the Serpent Queen Demon force that is conjured and projected through the archetypal Black Lilith. Thus, it must be clarified that the Baphomet was designed as an intentional anti-Christos-Sophia emanation, used to pervert hierogamic union and inner sacred marriage through sexual energy harvesting and exploitation of human beings. Baphomet Rituals were spread on the earth through a secret pact of blasphemy and sacrilege designed to utterly destroy the Christos-Sophia architecture, made popular through the teachings and practices of the Luciferian Knights Templars for over 9,500 years. The Baphomet Deception was mainly carried out by the Luciferian Knights Templars in order to distort and twist the original Gnostic teachings from the Christos Essene Templars, the blue flame grail lines of the original 12 Essene Tribes. From the earliest Luciferian Templar sects, this signature was promoted over many generations to be adopted into Islam and to pervade the Satanic sects, in which it became the Church of Satan’s GOAT (god of all things) symbolism.[4]

Left Hand Path Occultism

Although most Left Hand Path occultists and atheists are told that Baphomet is nothing more than a symbolic representation of the Universal synthesis of polarities, the alchemical process unifying light and dark that occurs during the Magnum Opus or spiritual Ascension, this innocuous depiction is a grossly inaccurate deception. It is accurate to say that in the co-existence of light and darkness, life and the death passage are ultimately two sides of the same spiritual coin that are inseparable from each other in this matter realm. However, this basic awareness of the Natural Laws that include the cosmological understanding of Dualism, the Law of Polarity, as represented in the Baphomet Deception, is precariously incomplete without the comprehension that humanity is also actively enduring a consciousness war involving intruding groups.[5]
