Guess the religion…

A few statements summarising the tenets of a religion which you may, or may not recognise. It's picking up steam at the polls.

Which religion do the following statements adhere to...?
  • I am an atheist; I do not believe in God.
  • I crave having more money and I enjoy material wealth — I strive for better things (and more of them) more than anything else.
  • I believe there is no supernatural being(s) or soul. They cannot be proven to exist, therefore they do not.
  • I believe there is no Spirit because it cannot be measured or seen or proven as fact by Science and the scientific method.
  • There is no life after death. Therefore, life is about indulgence and enjoying the time you have with hedonism, fun and pleasure including lust and greed. They're all just natural urges after all.
  • I believe there is an inherent force in all beings that strives for survival above all else. When it comes down to it, I believe survival and personal gratification is the purpose of life.
  • Human beings are essentially like animals, but with superior capacities for memory and learning. It is right to kill and eat animals whenever I desire, because I am at the top of the food chain. ‘It’s only what they would do to me if they could’.
  • Nature is a violent place where it’s kill or be killed, survival of the fittest, dog-eat-dog. As humans are essentially like animals, therefore, one’s desires and goals can be achieved by whatever means necessary.
  • What is Right and Wrong is set by men and women by whichever form of government they have selected. There is no objective ‘Right’ and ‘Wrong’ — society’s rulers set what is right and wrong relative to what they deem fit, and that’s the right thing to do.

The above statements are all tenets inherent to…


If you disagreed with most of the above statements... 

Give yourself a pat on the back, you’re well on your way to becoming a whole-hearted, true-natured, sovereign Human Being with care and freedom in your heart. You understand the difference between Right and Wrong, true and false, nature and nurture, and most importantly, the difference between Freedom and Slavery.

If you agreed with most of the above statements...

Take a moment to realise, you’re well on your way to becoming a whole-hearted Satanist. Satanism is the solipsistic view that nothing outside of oneself actually matters. And that if something doesn’t affect you, it doesn’t matter. The Church of Satan is a place you could gladly call home, despite the cognitive dissonance echoing in your psyche right about now.
