Satanism is a diverse religious and philosophical movement that encompasses various beliefs and practices. It is not a single unified entity. Some forms of Satanism, such as Laveyan Satanism, are atheistic and emphasize individualism, self-development, and the pursuit of personal pleasure. They see Satan as a symbol of rebellion against social norms and religious dogma. Other forms, such as theistic Satanism, involve the worship or worship of Satan as a god or spiritual person. It is important to note that Satanism does not include worship or belief in beings known as demons in the same sense depicted in Christian theology. Satanic beliefs and practices can vary greatly between individuals and groups, and it is important to understand the specific background and principles of each subspecies before generalizing.
