I consider myself a Modern Satanist. I believe Satan represents courage, strength, intelligence, rebellion against religious dogma, and holding yourself as the highest authority. I am generally spiritual, and also Pantheistic. I believe the universe is inherently spiritual, as it has been ever since it first evolved. I believe the universe, and nature is the only thing that can come close to a "God" or cosmic being, because I can't feel the presence of any God or supernatural being. The suffering that has been on earth for thousands of years, has proven to me that there can't be a concious, living God that exists and is kind towards humans and animals.
