The Satanic Bible by Anton Szandor LaVeyI grew up on the same block that Anton LaVey lived on. To me as a kid he was, that old guy who only wore black leather, drove a black Jaguar, and lived in a big, black house with an equally big fence in front of it. Cant say I ever recall seeing him talk to anyone, though my mother would occasionally chat with his daughter and his girlfriend at the corner store. My parents also told me that in the 70s he had a pet lion, but the neighbors complained about the noise so the zoo took it away, or something. After he died, his house remained untouched for a few years, but was eventually torn down—which was a real shame, especially since that building was allegedly an old speakeasy. Then, for a few more years, the lot stood vacant until someone without any taste built an ugly—yet nondescript—prefab piece of junk there. Im also pretty sure that either the building directly adjacent to his, or one or two houses away, had a beauty parlor on the first floor and a brothel on the top floor. Anyway, him being a local celebrity and all—in addition to being a neighbor—I figured the least I owed the guy was to check his book out.
It was pretty much what I heard itd be, namely that Satanism as he saw it was more or less a philosophy based on the power inside of people as opposed to prostrating yourself in front of religious icons or praying to the image of some anthropomorphic god. He also rejects the old notion of do unto others as they would do unto you and instead says do unto other as they do unto you. That is, if someones a real jerk-off to you, dont forgive and forget, get them back. And twice as hard.
On a purely grammatical note, I think he went a little over-budget in his use of exclamation marks, but other than that, the book is well written and fairly easy to follow. I highly recommend reading this on the bus or in a very crowded coffee shop for maximum effect.

This is probably one of the most painfully stupid questions a person could ask here. This little essay explains why. This concept isn't really all that hard to understand, but you'd be surprised how many idiots hear this and still don't grasp it. Or worse, try to make excuses and look for loopholes. No, you don't have some natural right to be entitled to free copies of other people's copyrighted materials. Otherwise, the concept of copyright wouldn't exist in the first place. No, the fact that millions of people illegally download things, or that the act seems harmless, still doesn't make it any less illegal.
The evidence is clear to any who are willing to view the record: Anton LaVey brought Satan out of the closet and the Church of Satan is the fountainhead of contemporary Satanism. This book summarizes the message both convey, and remains both challenge and inspiration, as timely today as when it was written. Lord Enki, an Anunnaki god, tells the story of these extraterrestrials' arrival on Earth from the 12th planet, Nibiru.

He was the most beautiful of all the Seraphim. He shone with intelligence and daring. His great heart was big with all the virtues born of pride: frankness, courage, constancy in trial, indomitable hope. Long, long ago, ere Time was, in the boreal sky where gleam the seven magnetic stars, he dwelt in a palace of diamond and gold, where the air was ever tremulous with the beating of wings and with songs of triumph. Iahveh, on his mountain, was jealous of Lucifer.
