This book was written because, with very few exceptions, every tract and paper, every “secret” grimoire, all the “great works” on the subject of magic, are nothing more than sanctimonious fraud – guilt-ridden ramblings and esoteric gibberish by chroniclers of magical lore unable or unwilling to present an objective view of the subject. Writer after writer, in efforts to state the principles of “white and black magic”, has succeeded instead in clouding the entire issue so badly that the would-be student of sorcery winds up stupidly pushing a planchette over a Ouija board, standing inside a pentagram waiting for a demon to present itself, limply tossing I-Ching yarrow stalks like so many stale pretzels, shuffling pasteboards to foretell a future which has lost any meaning, attending seminars guaranteed to flatten his ego – while doing the same to his wallet – and in general making a blithering fool of himself in the eyes of those who know!
The gods of the right-hand path have bickered and quarreled for an entire age of earth. Each of these deities and their respective priests and ministers have attempted to find wisdom in their own lies. The ice age of religious thought can last but a limited time in this great scheme of human existence. The gods of wisdom-defiled have had their saga, and their millennium hath become as reality. Each, with his own “divine” path to paradise, hath accused the other of heresies and spiritual indiscretions. The Ring of the Nibelungen doth carry an everlasting curse, but only because those who seek it think in terms of “Good” and “Evil” – themselves being at all times “Good”. The gods of the past have become as their own devils in order to live. Feebly, their ministers play the devil’s game to fill their tabernacles and pay the mortgages on their temples. Alas, too long have they studied “righteousness”, and poor and incompetent devils they make. So they all join hands in “brotherly” unity, and in their desperation go to Valhalla for their last great ecumenical council. “Draweth near in the gloom the twilight of the gods.” The ravens of night have flown forth to summon Loki, who hath set Valhalla aflame with the searing trident of the Inferno. The twilight is done. A glow of new light is borne out of the night and Lucifer is risen, once more to proclaim: “This is the age of Satan! Satan Rules the Earth!”
REGIE SATANAS! AVE SATANAS!HAIL SATAN! THE NINE SATANIC STATEMENTS
1- Satan represents indulgence, instead of abstinence! 2. Satan represents vital existence, instead of spiritual pipe dreams! 3.

Satan represents vengeance, instead of turning the other cheek!6. Satan represents responsibility to the responsible, instead of concern forpsychic vampires! 7. Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, moreoften worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his “divinespiritual and intellectual development”, has become the most viciousanimal of all! 8. Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical,mental, or emotional gratification! 9. Satan has been the best friend the church has ever had, as he has kept it inbusiness all these years!
THE BOOK OF SATANTHE INFERNAL DIATRIBE
The first book of the Satanic Bible is not an attempt to blaspheme as much as it is a statement of what might be termed “diabolical indignation”. The Devil has been attacked by the men of God relentlessly and without reservation. Never has there been an opportunity, short of fiction, for the Dark Prince to speak out in the same manner as the spokesmen of the Lord of the Righteous. The pulpit-pounders of the past have been free to define “good” and “evil” as they see fit, and have gladly smashed into oblivion any who disagree with their lies – both verbally and, at times, physically. Their talk of “charity”, when applied to His Infernal Majesty, becomes an empty sham – and most unfairly, too, considering the obvious fact that without their Satanic foe their very religions would collapse. How sad, that the allegorical personage most responsible for the success of spiritual religions is shown the least amount of charity and the most consistent abuse – and by those who most unctuously preach the rules of fair play! For all the centuries of shouting-down the Devil has received, he has never shouted back at his detractors. He has remained the gentleman at all times, while those he supports rant and rave. He has shown himself to be a model of deportment, but now he feels it is time to shout back. He has decided it is finally time to receive his due. Now the ponderous rule-books of hypocrisy are no longer needed. In order to relearn the Law of the Jungle, a small, slim diatribe will do. Each verse is an inferno. Each word is a tongue of fire. The flames of Hell burn fierce . . . and purify! Read on and learn the Law.
THE BOOK OF SATAN
1-In this arid wilderness of steel and stone I raise up my voice that you may hear. To the East and to the West I beckon. To the North and to the South I show a sign proclaiming: Death to the weakling, wealth to the strong!
2-Open your eyes that you may see, Oh men of mildewed minds, and listen to me ye bewildered millions!
3-For I stand forth to challenge the wisdom of the world; to interrogate the “laws” of man and of “God”!
4-I request reason for your golden rule and ask the why and wherefore of your ten commandments.
5-Before none of your printed idols do I bend in acquiescence, and he who saith “thou shalt” to me is my mortal foe!
5-I dip my forefinger in the watery blood of your impotent mad redeemer, and write over his thorn-torn brow: The TRUE prince of evil – the king of slaves!
6-No hoary falsehood shall be a truth to me; no stifling dogma shall encramp my pen!
7-I break away from all conventions that do not lead to my earthly success and happiness.
8-I raise up in stern invasion the standard of the strong!
9-I gaze into the glassy eye of your fearsome Jehovah, and pluck him by the beard; I uplift a broad-axe, and split open his worm-eaten skull!
