78. Different kind of Satanist

Essentially, Satanists come in four flavours:
- LaVeyan Satanists are atheists who have a philosophy that's essentially Objectivism with neo-mystical bolt-ons. Called "Satanist" largely because Anton LaVey liked annoying Christians.

- The Temple of Set don't consider themselves Satanists but everyone else does. They don't worship but do revere Set as an example of "willed self-evolution". They have a very complicated philosophy that I confess I don't fully understand.

- Luciferian Satanists (that's me) do believe in Lucifer and do worship him. We see him as the righteous rebel against a tyrannical god. We're an experiential faith, meaning no holy book in the normal sense and no dogma (beyond the duty of each of us to make our world a better place). Each worshipers individual take on the faith is constructed through personal gnosis. We're the smallest of the three main branches and completely lacking any kind of organization.

- Finally, there are the punk kids. Diane Vera (an influential occult writer) calls them "Black Circle Boys" after the film of the same name. They're the ones who smash up graveyards, torture/kill animals and use our signs and symbolism without any understanding of the belief system that underpins it. The rest of us loathe them, for fairly obvious reasons.
