Please allow me to introduce myself

I’m a man of wealth and taste:

You scored as Satanism. Your beliefs most closely resemble those of Satanism! Before you scream, do a bit of research on it. To be a Satanist, you don’t actually have to believe in Satan. Satanism generally focuses upon the spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes. Do some research if you immediately think of the satanic cult stereotype. Your beliefs may also resemble those of earth-based religions such as paganism.

The quiz author seems to have in mind the modern Satanism of people like our old friend Aleister Crowley and Anton LaVey. It’s more likely that I’d cast my lot in with the Dark Lord (who only exists in a metaphorical sense, remember) than that I’d, say, convert to Islam, but that’s not saying very much. Satanism seems to be an elaborate prank designed to annoy Christians while having some good parties (which of course, I can do anyway), rather than a system one could practically live by. If any Satannic evangelists would like to compete with nlj21 for my attention, then we can always talk, of course.

In the meantime, I will stick to the True Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorn (May Her Hooves Never Be Shod) and Kelvin, who is The Lord.

  1. Well, “spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes” sounds rather good to me.

    I don’t know if that qualifies it as a practical system to live by, but do you really need one?

      True, but Wikipedia’s article on LaVey points out that that’s not all it’s about: there’s a sort of ubermench, Nietzsche-like undertone to it which I’m not sure I find appealing.

      I don’t know if that qualifies it as a practical system to live by, but do you really need one?

      Not particularly. As I’ve said before, if I felt I wanted a community I might look into religion of some sort (Satanist coffee mornings: cool!), but right now I have enough to occupy me.

  2. So how much did you cheat to score that low on Christianity? Looking at the results coming up I have a feeling that the author of the quiz has presented a really negative image of Christianity and a really positive one of Satanism, whether deliberately or just through unconscious bias I’m not sure. I’m not saying that you’re really a Christian without knowing it, but you are after all a product of Christian culture and I’m sure you share a lot of the values of Christianity.

      Not at all: that was my first result.

      I think they’ve possibly interpreted Christianity as the American evangelical variant of the same: the questions about literal creationism, for example. I don’t know what the blurb says for people who get Christianity as their top result (and can’t be bothered to go and answer as an evangelical to find out).

      Indeed so, but the quiz seems to be much more interested in doctrine than values, and I’m pretty much guaranteed to put “disagree strongly” against evangelical Christian doctrine, which I suppose might influence my result.

        Well I guess if you are curious…
        (not too sure I agree with their doctrine of God; sounds rather modalist to me):

        You scored as Christianity. Your views are most similar to those of Christianity. Do more research on Christianity and possibly consider being baptized and accepting Jesus, if you aren’t already Christian.

        Christianity is the second of the Abrahamic faiths; it follows Judaism and is followed by Islam. It differs in its belief of Jesus, as not a prophet nor historical figure, but as God in human form. The Holy Trinity is the concept that God takes three forms: the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Ghost (sometimes called Holy Spirit).

    You scored as agnosticism. You are an agnostic. You neither believe nor disbelieve in God. You don’t believe it is possible to prove the existence of God (nor lack thereof). Agnosticism is a philosophy that God’s existence cannot be proven. Some say it is possible to be agnostic and follow a religion; however, one cannot be a devout believer if he or she does not truly believe.
