Welcome to Dark Atheists

I started this group because I was looking for a similar one and same as GOD it does not exist here on A/N lol. If you are sick of feeling left out for being dark and moody or hardcore and brash-then guess what your my new friend. I want this group to be one big place to vent about how annoying society is. Basically anything that expresses yourself like, darkness, things that are creepy, fav rock bands, poetry, vampires, movies, TV shows-whatevs. Just share- if it's interesting.  And Welcome!

This morning I reacted to a zombie picture with a fantasy. I've often felt that identifying with monster characters, like Annie in Being Human, is a way to express a part of ourselves that didn't fit…Continue

Hello Cory,

The bible I got is the Anton Le Vey one. I grew up in the bay area in California and went to see the Satanic church there once. Boring really.

I know that Merciful Fate, then later the singer King Diamond when he went solo actually belived in all that stuff. Most of the bands I think went fir shock value though. The great early eighties band Satan for example. I still have no idea why they went with that name other than shock value since their music isn't satanic. I prefer punk mostly though. A lot punk is all about atheism, or I should say are atheists. Some great anti religeon/christianity songs out there.

Hey Michael, Welcome to the group. I do not really think that most of the music groups that claim to be satanic are just going for shock value. which version of the satanic bible do you have?

Hi everyone, Like the idea of this group... well except for the whole satanism thing. Don't get me wrong, I like bands like Venom and Merciful Fate (saw both of them in concert even). I always viewed them like a horror movie though. People who actually believe is satanism are just christians who are sick of christians imo though. It's all cowing to your imaginary friend. I have the satanic bible and it reads like an athiest bible except for the whole bible thing. Oh yeah, all you into punk and hardcore, Attitude Adjustment is back together!!

@Sean Murphy My own experience is that all too many Satanists are really Ayn Randites whose Satanism is really a reactionary response to herd mentality.  But then I only know from a splinter group, the Temple of Set, which was composed mostly of bores.  (They threw me out for drinking and pederasty, the latter a projection of the Ipsissypus (leader), actually accused of pedophile doings in the San Francisco area.)  He later wrote me to say it had become obvious to him that I was unfit to be a member of his Temple.  I was tempted to frame it I was so proud.  Now, I happen to know a bit of the history of Satanism, having read Huysmans, Papus, et al.  In fact, I am working on a screenplay about Huysmans' adventures in the occult world of Paris in the Belle Epoque.

Keep in mind, the default attitude toward anything with the trappings of religion is condescension among atheists. It is a self-defense reaction against the attitude the dominant religions gives us. Here you are more likely to encounter those who know the difference between the history of Satanism and Lavey's writings...
