idonteventhesepeople asked: Hiya I don't much about Johannes Nefastos' gnostic satanism and I'm glad to check that out as I find lavey's work and his ilk rather detestable to say the least , I've been studying Thelema, Vodou, and Chaos Magic for sometime now and was just curious about your perspective on Aleister Crowley's works and the Thelemic system in particular
Well I guess my opinion on Crowley is kinda mixed right now. I respect Crowley as a popularizer of occultism and as a challenger of the status quo of the Victorian age. Also I love the “Do what Thou Wilt shall be the whole of the Law” thing but my first exposure to his work gave me the impression of an overly elaborate and complex ritual system inherited from the aristocratic Hermetic tradition, along with all the grandiose titles and hierarchy such organizations love. Fancy titles and hierarchy being 2 things I am very much against as only feeding the ego and if anything hampering the ability of the individual to follow the Do what Thou Wilt command.
Outside of those initial impressions I don’t consider myself knowledgeable enough about the Thelemite system to be able to offer much further comment, and please, if I am wrong please feel free to set me right on Thelema.
magica-terram asked: So, what does Satanism mean to you?
Satanism to me means the path by which one achieves godhood, like all mystical paths it aims to achieve union with the divine, whom I call Satan/Lucifer. What is different about Satanism and what draws me back again and again is the approach which resonates deeply with me.
The usage of transgression for spiritual liberation, the brutal honesty, the confrontational nature of this type of spirituality have me hooked.
magica-terram asked: Yeah, links would be nice and yes, you did answer my question. In really interested in Satanism. I find that it makes much more sense than Christianity, but then again most things make more sense than Christianity.
Here’s a look at Lavey’s lies and an interview with his daughter that should be enlightening.
magica-terram asked: Why do you say more Nefastos and less LaVey? I'm just curious. I have only just started reading The Satanic Bible by LaVey purely out of curiosity. I downloaded Nefastos' The Catechism of Lucifer after reading your post. I plan to read every word of it, but I have just finished reading 'The 10 Commandments'. So, out of curiosity why Nefastos?
I have found his work tremendously inspiring and, based on my research, his approach to Satanism appeares to be the most authentic to historical Satanism.
Lavey I see as a scam artist, his work is merely plagiarizing Ragnar Redbeard and Ayn Rand and blending it with a mixed up mess of popular occultism.
If you’d like links to info backing this stuff up I would be happy hook you up.
Does that answer your question?
Ya know what the satanism tag on tumblr needs? More quotes from real satanists like Johannes Nefastos and less from frauds like Anton Lavey.
In short: More Nefastos, less Lavey, got it?
