The inverted pentagram, along with the Baphomet, is the most notable and widespread symbol of Satanism. [1] A sigil of Lucifer adapted from the Grimorium Verum The opportunity for anyone to live within a total environment of their choice, with mandatory adherence to the aesthetic and behavioral standards of same – "Privately owned, operated and controlled environments as an alternative to homogenized and polyglot ones. The freedom to insularize oneself within a social milieu of personal well-being. An opportunity to feel, see, and hear that which is most aesthetically pleasing, without interference from those who would pollute or detract from that option." In 1818, the name Baphomet appeared in the essay by the Viennese Orientalist Joseph Freiherr von Hammer-Purgstall, Mysterium Baphometis revelatum, seu Fratres Militiæ Templi, qua Gnostici et quidem Ophiani, Apostasiæ, Idoloduliæ et Impuritatis convicti, per ipsa eorum Monumenta [44] ("Discovery of the Mystery of Baphomet, by which the Knights Templars, like the Gnostics and Ophites, are convicted of Apostasy, of Idolatry and of moral Impurity, by their own Monuments"), which presented an elaborate pseudohistory constructed to discredit Templarist Masonry and, by extension, Freemasonry. [45] Following Nicolai, he argued, using as archaeological evidence "Baphomets" faked by earlier scholars and literary evidence such as the Grail romances, that the Templars were Gnostics and the "Templars' head" was a Gnostic idol called Baphomet: Levi, Eliphas (1861) [1854–1856].

Wikipedia articles incorporating a citation from the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica with Wikisource reference In the Book of Belial, he discusses three types of rituals: lust rituals which work to entice another person, destruction rituals to destroy another person and compassion rituals to improve health, intelligence, success. [42] Lust rituals are designed to attract the desired romantic or sexual partner and can involve masturbation, with orgasm as the goal. Destruction rituals are designed to do harm to others [18] and involve the symbolic annihilation of an enemy through the use of "vicarious" human sacrifice often involving a customized effigy representing the intended victim which is then put through ritual fire, smashing, or other representation of obliteration. Compassion rituals are designed with the intent of helping people (including oneself), to evoke overwhelming pathos or sadness, and crying is strongly encouraged. As Satan in the Old Testament tests people, theistic Satanists may believe that Satan sends them tests in life to develop them as LaVey, Anton Szandor (2005) [1969]. The Satanic Bible.

The anthropologist Jean La Fontaine described LaVeyan Satanism as having "both elitist and anarchist elements", also citing one occult bookshop owner who referred to the church's approach as "anarchistic hedonism". [10] In their study of Satanism, the religious studies scholars Asbjørn Dyrendal, James R. Lewis, and Jesper Aa. Petersen suggested that LaVey viewed his religion as "an antinomian self-religion for productive misfits, with a cynically carnivalesque take on life, and no supernaturalism". [11] The sociologist of religion James R. Lewis even described LaVeyan Satanism as "a blend of Epicureanism and Ayn Rand's philosophy, flavored with a pinch of ritual magic." [12] The historian of religion Mattias Gardell described LaVey's as "a rational ideology of egoistic hedonism and self-preservation", [13] while Nevill Drury characterised LaVeyan Satanism as "a religion of self-indulgence". [14] It has also been described as an "institutionalism of Machiavellian self-interest". [15] Hidden Persuaders and Invisible Wars: Anton LaVey and Conspiracy Culture".

Archived from the original on 8 February 2017 . Retrieved 31 March 2020. LaVeyan Satanism has been characterised as belonging to the political right rather than to the political left. [55] The historian of Satanism Ruben van Luijk characterised it as a form of "anarchism of the Right". [56] LaVey was anti-egalitarian and elitist, believing in the fundamental inequality of different human beings. [57] His philosophy was Social Darwinist in basis. [58] It was also influenced by the writings of Herbert Spencer, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Ayn Rand. [59] LaVey stated that his Satanism was "just Ayn Rand's philosophy with ceremony and ritual added". [60] Characterising LaVey as a Nietzschean, the religious studies scholar Asbjørn Dyrendal nevertheless thought that LaVey's "personal synthesis seems decidedly his own creation, even though the different ingredients going into it are at times very visible." [61] Social Darwinism is particularly noticeable in The Book of Satan, where LaVey uses portions of Redbeard's Might Is Right, though it also appears throughout in references to man's inherent strength and instinct for self-preservation. [38] LaVeyan Satanism's views on human nature are influenced by the work of Friedrich Nietzsche ( pictured) and Ayn Rand.In the 1999 survival horror video game Silent Hill, an interpretation of Baphomet appears as a possible final boss, representing the deity worshipped by a cult residing in the titular town.

Lévi's depiction of Baphomet is similar to that of The Devil in the early Tarot. [53] Lévi, working with correspondences different from those later used by S.L. MacGregor Mathers, "equated the Devil Tarot key with Mercury", giving "his figure Mercury's caduceus, rising like a phallus from his groin".
