Hi.
« on: March 01, 2018, 11:56:14 PM »
Hi there, it's me, Breatharian... I made this account on here around January, but I almost forgot about it until now, so yeah...

You may know me as ƵenKlassen or Lassic from other internet forums, and I have been banned from many other forums including:
atheistforums.org, atheistforums.com, and etc, for having opposing opinions... I hope this forum is not the same as those...

That being said, I hope I enjoy this forum.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Out of curiosity, what exactly do you mean by opposing opinions? Are you a theist?

If you are, please note that we have a no preaching rule. This forum is a little different from other atheist forums in that we are a laid back bunch who do not often discuss or debate religion and related topics. ;)
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

No, I'm not a theist, xSilverPhinx; I'm more of an atheist than anything else, although I do have a growing curiosity in LaVeyan Satanism.

Also, the "opposing opinions" I got banned for were completely irrelevant to religious belief, it had more to do with me being a national socialist and them being closed-minded bigots.

Welcome to the forum Breatharian. 

We can endure, even embrace, some differences of opinion here but we do not suffer trouble makers, fundamentalists, deranged dipshits, trolls, or Trump apologists, at all well.

Yeah. No.

Check out the forum rules Breatharian.

Keep looking though. I know of least one place that won't ban you (likely won't even bother to suspend you), and you'll get plenty of the vitriol, opprobrium, and scorn you appear to desire.

If you shit destrub you'll be able to add Happy Atheist Forum to your 'banned from' list pretty damn quick. I don't like passive aggressive behaviour or vailed threats of future bad behaviour. And I've never heard of you.

Having opposing opinions is a good thing, how you express them could be the issue.

Whether you enyoy this forum is up to you.
Whether you get to stay... we'll see how you behave.

It's very easy not to get banned.

Hi, Breatharian,  welcome and I would be interested to hear your views. For e.g. is not "Satanism" just another variant on theism? Or, for its practionioners, an excuse to dress up and be all gothic/dramatic, or just plain sexually basic?

Well, Dave, there are different variations of Satanism; the most popular, according to my knowledge, is LaVeyan Satanism, which is actually an atheistic religion, since they don't actually believe in Satan but use him as a symbol for their religion...

I'll have to do more research on LaVeyan Satanism, since I am kinda interested in it...

Hmm, sounds like a bit of an excuse for themed play acting . . .

I suggest you take a look at Sir Francis Dashwood and his "Hellfire Club" of the 18thC. The chalk/flint mines (called "caves" for effect) near London are still a tourist hotspot it seems. Some pranksters dressed a, then very rare in England, monkey up as Satan and let it loose in the club. The other members were terrified that their "ceremonies" had actually invoked the Old Nick himself!

Welcome, Breatharian! I like your name. I almost get the feeling that you're proud of being banned from other places, so of course I am curious as to why..... it seems like simply disagreeing wouldn't get you banned on multiple forums. Are you an asshole?
Well I guess we'll see! I look forward to reading your ideas and thoughts on things. I will admit, I am curious.
And LaVeyan Satanism doesn't seem so bad. I've done some reading on it, and I feel like the members have a great desire to rub people's faces in things, which isn't always a bad thing, but I think I agree with most of what they "believe".

Did someone say 'Satanism'?

Hi all.

I like Laveyan Satanism per se, but I'm no longer a fan of the community. I think I've grown up a bit since playing around with Satanist forums in my 30's/early 40's (I'm 45 now). Just like I grew up about my own view on politics in a modern world I'd choose to be a part of.

To understand Laveyan Satanism you only need to read The Satanic Bible.
To understand the online Satanist community, you need to be in a room full of people who peg everyone else a closed-minded bigot.

Silver Ubermensch, eh? What does that mean to you?

Enjoy your time at HAF.
