    You bet. I think the connection to Biblical mythology is unnecessary. But it does have it's own set of values. And a belief in magic.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaVeyan_Satanism

    There are probably different forms of Satanism that do embrace the role of being evil.
    Of course, one has to point to Christianity for giving them the idea in the first place.

    and when asked about his religion, [LaVey] stated that "the reason it's called Satanism is because it's fun, it's accurate and it's productive"...

    Why not worship Satan? People worship serial killers, football players, pop stars, all of who tend to be tits.

    Because devotion to a deity is selfless. It denies one's personal, animal vitality.

    I give you a common saying, "The winners write the history."

    Now consider the war in Heaven.

    Who really won?

    Probably a draw, hence God and Lucifer are pals.

    Why "a draw"? Why not Satan wins, writes the history so he was always God? Can anyone prove otherwise?

    No, Satanists can't worship Satan, because Satanism emphasizes self interest.

    Yeah? You haven't read the Bible then.

    However, butthurt aside, you can't prove it didn't happen that way.

    According to fundamentalists, it isn't over yet; Satan and his guerrillas are still up in the Sierra Maestra....

    The idea of Satan wouldn't exist without the bible. So you are saying that Satan wrote the bible?

    Are you saying there was no Satan before the Bible was written? That would be some heavy guilt if true. But considering that it's all bullshit anyway you don't have feel too bad. A bunch of bronze age goat herders made up some whoopers and people are still buying into them. Awesome.

    The idea of Satan is about as old as the human psyche. "The devil made me do it" is a survival mechanism as much as fighting or fleeing.
