You’re being too hard on yourself. The poll thing is hard...I’ve done one.No. I was trying to put it in alphabetical order.
See how all the As are at the top?
It got complicated, I got confused. I missed out occultists altogether. I have asked for it to be fixed.
And if you are interested, AI is in there because it is my choice.
I don't think thats a good word either. I think it should have been Transumanists. That would explain better what I meant.
All in all the poll turned out to be a bit crap. Next time I will get my list together before I start entering them.
Thank-you, understood.Satanists was on the list. I took it off to find a better word.
Because if I said satanists, I would have to have another poll saying what kind of satanist?
Athiestic satanists like the satanic temple?
Jewish satanists like kaballa
Christian satanists like crowley
political satanists like bohemian grove
new age pagan satanists like neo druids
and so on.
I was thinking of occultist as a category, which would include religious satanists, while philosophers or athiests would include the non-theistic satanists.
And there is only so many options in a poll.
ETA. To me 'satan' and 'satanism' is a synonym for evil.
Here I have seen it used by one group against another. Group A says 'My god is the real one, your god is satan'. In return group B says 'No! Our god is the true one. Your god is Satan'.
The medieval gnostics thought the christian god was satan. Rex Mundi. The god of the world.
So, no. Satanism is too general as a category. The word is used by too many groups to indicate their enemy.
I think the non powerful are conspiring against the powerfulI am just curious.
Everyone seems to have a different opinion
Edit. Also I am an idiot. The poll is messed up. There should have been an 'occultist' category of some kind.
I tried to move my list about to make it alphabetical, but I must have got distracted or confused. Because I didn't do it right.
Occultists got missed out altogether, and muslims is on there twice.
Is there any kind of mod here that could fix it for me? I can't edit it.
I know.But the same could be said with all the categories. I also believe there may be more than one category involved. Then there is the problem of those that say they are something they are not. It gets rather confusing.
