The Basis of Satanism


These were originally written by Anton LeVay, my source was his biography by one of his woman-friends.


Zak does not believe in Satan. I do not believe in supernatural beings, and, as a consequence, I believe in neither Satan nor God.

The Nine Satanic Statements

  • Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence.
  • Satan represents vital existence instead of spiritual pipe dreams.
  • Satan represents undefiled wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit. (self-consistency, no dichotomies)
  • Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it instead of love wasted on ingrates.
  • Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek.
  • Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires. (existentialism)
  • Satan represents man as just another animal - sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all fours - who, because of his "divine spiritual and intellectual development," has become the most vicious animal of all. ("Man is the cruelest animal of them all" -- Nietzsche)
  • Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification.
  • Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as he has kept it in business all these years.

The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth

  • Do not give opinion or advice unless you are asked.
  • Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.
  • When in anther's lair, show him respect or else do not go there.
  • If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.
  • Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.
  • Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.
  • Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will loose all you have obtained.
  • Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.
  • Do not harm little children.
  • Do not kill non-human animals unless attacked or for your food.
  • When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him.

The Nine Satanic Sins

  • Stupidity It's too bad that stupidity isn't painful.
  • Pretentiousness
  • Solipsism Projecting our reactions, responses, and sensibilities onto someone else who is probably far less attuned than you are. It is the mistake of expecting people to give you the same consideration, courtesy, and respect you naturally give them. They won't!
  • Self-Deceit We must not pay homage to any of the sacred cows presented to us, including the roles we are expected to play ourselves. The only time self-deceit should be entered into is when it's fun, and with awareness. But then it's not self-deceit!
  • Herd Conformity It's all right to conform to a person's wishes, if it ultimately benefits you. But only fools follow along with the herd, letting an impersonal entity dictate to you.
  • Lack of Perspective You must never loose sight of what you are. We are making history right now, every day. Always keep the wider historical and social picture in mind. See the patterns fit things together as you want the pieces to fall.
  • Forgetfulness of Past Orthodoxies Be aware that this is one of the keys to brainwashing people into accepting something as "new" and "different," when in reality it's something that was once widely accepted but now is presented in a NW package.
  • Counterproductive Pride That first word is important. The rule is: if it works for you, great. When it stops working for you, you've painted yourself into a corner and the only way out is to say, "I'm sorry, I made a mistake, I with I could compensate somehow," then do it!
  • Lack of Aesthetics It's not what is supposed to be pleasing, it's what is!
