I began life as a Christian, but when I went to Job Corps my Satanism came to being. During my time in the Navy I was in conflict between Satanism and Christianity, but eventually my Satanism won and for some time after I came back I was Satanist. Then not very long ago I decided to give them both up altogether and now I do not believe in God or Satan. Now I do believe in Demons and Spirits, but I am trying to find the truth without my judgement being clouded.

My one true enemy in life is the Church. I do not want to start fights, this is only my opinion; I believe the Church itself is corrupt and power-hungry who has taken things into its own hands, its grip so tight on society that we don't even realise that some of the msot basic stuff we do in life has brought up by the church, such as society's hatred for same-sex relationships. I left my Satanism behind when I began to believe that Satanism is only society's attempt to fight the church, using something the Church created as something to rally around.

"Whether you choose to fight the inevitable...
Is entirely up to you."


"The Great Game has seen incredibly unusual, meaningless and powerful alliances, however short or long, between the Gods of Chaos. Most have never before been witnessed by the inhabitants of realspace, others have decimated entire systems as the Daemons of Chaos marched across spacetime. But none have ever been as insidious or as heinous as that between the Dark Prince and the Architect of Fate given form as the Daemon Prince Us'etil'akhed'raan, Saenocroleius, the All-Father."

I like to follow some of the Daoist (Taoist) philosophy that everything is energy and it may be in some way connected, but I also have a broad range on all religion, I'll never dismiss something just because it's hard to believe, there may be a god(s), not in essence a man like figure but a divine presence that we can't witness with our own eyes, hell Science explains about Dark Matter and they use it A LOT but we have no way of measuring it yet, maybe that is the Divine presence who knows.
I used to believe in Karma... not anymore, I just think to good to ones self and others and you'll get by good enough.

Out of curiosity what Buddhism are you refering to in the vote?

I'm a shinto practitioner myself, or as best can be in England

Sadly not... you get nothing, but thanks to enough people putting it on the census last time round its officially recognised, or was last I knew, they might have done something about it by now.

Sorry for being unclear.
Sorry I didn't think you were trying to conflate the two. The stories are very different from the Jewish Apocrypha though. Lucifer is power hungry seeking to extend his dominion over man, thereby freeing man from God's rule, if not rule. Prometheus stole fire from the Gods to give it man, to free man from the shackles of the gods somewhat by defying Zeus punishment. Thus ending up in eternal liver-eating bad shape.

We know really very little about Lucifer as, at an entity, he's written about very seldomly. The early text just seem to indicate he was a warning to others about what happens if you try to set yourself up as an equal or above God. You will fall, essentially like the Morning Star falls from the sky in the morning, hence the term lucifer. As it's used in the Bible it tends to relate either plainly to the morning star or to people who are destined to fall.
