Not anything to take seriously as a philosophy, just some ***holes screwing around. And yes, it has nothing to do with Satan at all, their beliefs are atheistic.
Good grief Humphreys. Do you understand what you are implying here?? Or is the the peak of public education???
As to this Rykuss...it is not difficult to understand if you know some history of nations..particularly ancient nations and their religions.
I don't understand their rationale in making broad statements about nature-based religions being one and the same with their philosophy. These people aren't stupid, in fact they're quite intelligent. So I have to wonder why they would say things like that.
Most of the ancient nations fall into what historically is called Fertility worship..or paganism..and often a variation of Nature worship..pantheism.
Multitudes of gods..and worship often following the seasons.
The only thing you need to know about these religions is the fruit they bore...
Were these religions and their influence on the state...conducive to a higher standard of living for everyone ..through productive activities where people could keep more of what they produced. Or did these nature religions keep a feudal system in place.
What is also interesting in many of these religions was the runaway rampant sexuality which took place and was cultivate and fostered by the state. This particularly around their festivals and holydays. This was quite common around these ancient cultures and nations.
What is also interesting is that Ancient Israel got caught up in this practice ..including sacrificing their first born to other gods..the fertility worship of the nations surrounding them. For this practice...the groves and high places...so to speak...Ancient Israel finally lost the land by 70 AD.
This kind of thing when instructed not to do it is called "Whoredom."
Going after other gods.
What is also known about Pantheism ..is that when people worship nature...nature conquers man...and subdues him to a level below nature. All you have to do it look at the various cultures, peoples, and nations in this world and then look at their religion and see if it was conducive to progress which would raise the standard of living of the people above nature.
You can put any name on the religion you want...but what does it do to the people to raise their standard of living.
You can put all the scientific spin you want on it ..but does the religion help people to progress above a basic nature or substance level or does it hold people back to nature or below.
This includes the religion of politics....for it is obvious that politics is full of the fertility practices...and other occult doings.
Another fingerprint of many religions..and particularly Eastern pantheistic nature type religions..fertility religions...is that there is in them a section or grouping for the insiders and another for outsiders. By this I mean a very inside cadre within the membership..who are different from the regular membership.
This is also a key definition of politics today. It is also a fingerprint of Occult Religions/Eastern Religions.
Pantheism is Nature worship...is fertility worship..is Eastern Religions..Eastern Philosophies.
This is also the religion of wise men...Wizards...Sophists...Crowley et al.
Natural man...intelligent sophisticated man...men of letters ..Wise men...have always historically attempted by logic and reason..to return to their roots...sexuality...fertility...nature.
The reason for this is that this is the very best that natural intelligent men through out history have ever been able to do. Much of this history is hidden and concealed from us. We are not to know this.
What is not known or much advertised historically and factually ..is that some of the highest IQ people in the world are not orientals..but Jews...Hebrews.
Yet here we have these people of high IQ ..even in Ancient times...who lost the land and their blessings from God..and were spread around the world for their disobedience in following after strange gods and the practices and traditions of these strange gods.
They are still doing this today.
And so too ..as it was with the Jews ...are today many Believers doing the same pattern and fingerprint.
When the Satanists and Luciferians make the claims back to Pantheism and nature worship..they are not kidding.
Hope this helps,
