Technically by definition, it is impossible to be both a "Satanist" and an "Atheist". In order to believe in Satan, one must accept an Abrahamic Religion as being true. As Abrahamic traditions, such as Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and the Baha'i Faith, are the only ones to include "Satan" as character. So if one accepts a belief in Satan so too must one accept the existence of God.

Stupidity and the reluctance to make progress due to outdated belief systems that serve to restrict expression and scientific development. Furthermore, people's fear of change is forcing society into two camps those for progress and who realize that we are becoming a global society and those who feel like we need to hold tighter to our processes that have worked well in the past. Unfortunately both sides are populated by nut jobs who make everyone look bad. So everyone refuses to agree on something and everything becomes more tense. What everyone both old and young, rich and poor, domestic and foreign, needs to realize is that with the advent of newer and newer technology we ARE moving into a global society and there really isn't a way to change that. It is time for a redesigning of the way governments, economists, and society interact. The video game industry is already taking the lead in this situation cutting down gaps between international releases, especially the Pokemon Company who are planning a simultaneous world wide release of their next titles. More and more people are watching programs outside of their native language and due to the advent of twitter and facebook, world wide politics is being focused on more and more.

Furthermore is it also historical fact that several "gods" and "saviors" throughout history have the exact same "story" as Jesus of Nazareth including Glycon, Mithra, and Horus. In addition considering that the "civilized world" particularly as it related to the Hebrew people, from which the old testament comes, was centralized in the Mediterranean region, matching a person to several "prophecies" would not be a big stretch, especially spending time in Egypt. Also fact is the Council of Nicaea, during which the concrete decision about the divinity of the Christ was decided, the date of Easter( to coincide with a pagan festival), and many other early laws. In the early church the christians still used the old testament and it wasn't till 140AD that what might be considered the "first draft" of the new testament was compiled, including the 10 letters of Paul, and an early Gospel of Luke later renamed to the Gospel of Marcion. The four Gospels canon was put forth by Irenaeus, on what seems to be an almost Pagan reasoning, incluing the fact that "there are four quarters of the earth in which we live, and four universal winds". It wasnt until around the 3rd century that what we know today as the new testament was in use. In addition Martin Luther again edited the roman catholic bible to exclude Hebrews, James, Jude and Revelation in 1534. Again in 1825 the British and Foreign Bible society again translated and edited the Bible to exclude what is know as the apocrypha and it became as it is today. So the accuracy of the current bible in relation to the source material is highly doubtful. That's not even mentioning the fact that in the days before the printing press, and for some time after, literacy was limited to the rich and to the church, and copies of the bible even more so. Therefore, no one can really say with any actual certainty that the bible is accurate.

Its an interesting question. First it would have to be established whether or not having sex with a child is in fact damaging to children. Studies currently show that sexual activity between an adult and child can cause mental and emotional issues later in life. This in our society is an accepted fact, so in this time period, no it should not. However, psychologically speaking "sex play" between children manifests early in in a child's development as an exploratory and normal part of development regarding gender roles and society. So proposing a hypothesis, is it the social stigma of adult-child sexual relations: the "secret keeping", the "Scary" and desperate forms the abuse can take, especially from a repressed pedophile, and the extreme reactions and emotional upheaval after the revelation of the act, including but not limited to; the removal of the adult from the childs life, interrogation by the police or psychologists, or relocation that might cause the emotional scarring, rather than the physical act? Unfortunately the only way this hypothesis is testable would be if there was a society in which free and open sexual relationships where a mainstream occurrence. If it is proven that a free and open adult-child sexual relationship is not in fact damaging to a child's psyche, then child pornography either would be legal or we would have no use for it.

I do agree that drugs are bad, however the problem is that prescription pills are now causing more overdoses than illegal drugs. Studies also show that 80% of the worlds pain pills are consumed in America. That may not seem like alot considering our population, but then consider that a country like China has 1.3 billion people while The United States has only 0.3 billion, that's a huge number per person comparatively. Furthermore a 2008 study by Harvard economist Jeffrey A. Miron has estimated that legalizing drugs would save taxpayers $76.8 billion a year in the United States — $44.1 billion from law enforcement savings, and at least $32.7 billion in tax revenue ($6.7 billion from marijuana, $22.5 billion from cocaine and heroin, remainder from other drugs). With America in almost 17 trillion dollars worth of debt, the legalization of drugs, and the taxation on the sales and jobs created by a responsible drug market, could help boost the economy exponentially.

I believe they are learned, for instance today pink is widely considered a "girls color" to the extent that one cant walk through the toy aisles in a store with out seeing a barrage of pink in the toys typically meant of girls. However, before the 20th century in many countries it was the other way around with pink being considered a more masculine color. However in the 1950s, at least in the us, the color pink had become unfailingly associated with femininity. Furthermore, while certain things in sex dependent, ie greater upper body strength in men, and wider hips in women, lead to certain roles in a "primitive" society, hunter and homemaker, this was not a strict standard. Also looking at children, a relatively blank slate, one would notice that alot of behaviors are learned not innate, for example playing with dolls, it is not an odd occurrence to see a young boy play with the dolls of a sister, or playmate, until they are told that dolls are bad "girly" things, and so toy makers responded with "action figures" to satisfy the social norm that boys not play with a "girly" barbie and instead with the "masculine" gi joe.
