Anton Szandor LaVey (1930—1997) was the founder of the Church of Satan, the first organized church in modern times promulgating a religious philosophy championing Satan as the symbol of personal freedom and individualism. Unlike the founders of other religions, who claimed exalted “inspiration” delivered through some supernatural entity, LaVey readily acknowledged that he used his own faculties to synthesize Satanism, based on his understanding of the human animal and insights gained from earlier philosophers who advocated materialism and individualism. Concerning his role as founder, he said that, “If he didn’t do it himself, someone else, perhaps less qualified, would have.” You can read more here: http://www.churchofsatan.com/Pages/LaVeyBiography.html

Of course I know who he is. He was the founder of the fist Satanic Church. I have read a few chapters of the Satanic bible and some things make sense. I don't agree with everything he has to say. They can be a bit selfish sometimes but I kinda like the concept of not being stupid and not telling your problems to other people unless they REALLY want to hear the horrible story.
