I read this post on another site and I had to laugh. Read the following quote from the OP and you’ll see what I mean:
"Only Judeo based faiths such as christianity, catholicism, mormonism, and buddhism fall into the right hand path. Wicca and witchcraft and also Satanism and Santeria are left hand path religions. As for black magic practicioners, they don’t fit anywhere on that spectrum because they are neither of the good right hand path nor of the left hand path which includes religions that are outside of cultural norms, mainly polytheistic religions. The left hand path is symbolic of turning your hand away from the christian God, turning away from what is considered right by christians towards the left.
Those black magic practicioners are just a bunch of atheists who study magic which I find sorta disrespecting. You cannot be a atheist and believe in magic at the same time. And there is no such thing as white or black magic, there is only grey. Black magic is just a concept invented by movies and television. I’m not sure if these black magics are using the term to feel big and powerful or using it to make their evil spells look not-so-bad."
I had to laugh at the pure ignorance of that person’s statement. Wicca is NOT LHP it is strictly RHP. Buddhism is also NOT a judeo based religion. They said black magicians (or practicioners as they call it) do not fit in either spectrum and that left hand is not a path, it is a symbolic reference to those who have chosen religions other than judeo based. Where did they get this false information from? LHP really has nothing to do with religion at all.
They basically said, we black magicians are just a bunch of atheists and how can they believe in magick if they are atheist. I love how the OP seems to think that atheism is the dismissal of everything unseen. The definition of an atheist is someone who dismisses the belief in a supreme deity, that there is no one god or deity who reigns supreme over all, it has nothing to do with magick. I also found it funny that they think Satanism and Santeria fall into the same magickal grouping as wiccans and pagans.
This person has been educating themselves from all the wrong sources. They also claim that they are a follower of the LHP that also identify as a theistic Luciferian but they believe Lucifer is not real neither from the christian perspective as being the devil or as an actual entity that can be summoned, merely a concept. I thought theistic Luciferians were those who believe that Lucifer is an actual being, whether they believe in the bible literally or believe he is an entity separate from christianity. Isn’t that what theism is? The belief in god as surpreme deity as those who interpret the bible as being literal, including all of the angels and people within that book? They also claimed that demons do not exist. So if they follow the LHP and believe demons are not real, would they not instead fall under some type of atheistic Satanism? There are forms of Satanism that are merely a way of life, seeing oneself as god and defying social norms without the actual belief in anything godlike, demonic, or magickal at all.
