Re: haha - I laugh at you but I cry on behalf of Nietzsche

Thanks for that, I value intelligent comments, I'll have to go away and look stuff up when I'm back at home (I'm away and mostly offline at the moment due to work).

Re: haha - I laugh at you but I cry on behalf of Nietzsche

:) I love Nietzsche.

Hayden, you truly prove him correct in "Beyond Good and Evil" when he wrote, "No one lies as much as the indignant man."

"really you are a satanist so that you can maintain the comunal comfort of the congregation and avoid truly going your own way - nietzsche would be very disapointed"
Satanism is highly individualistic. One does not become a Satanist to socialize, and such a thing is warned against at the Church of Satan's official website.

'Joylessness, not joy, is the mother of excess.'
And from this one can clearly read Nietzsche saying "yes" to what makes us happy AND "yes" to moderation. If joy is gained by indulgence then so be it. Self-denial is a form of excess and something Nietzsche considered quite dangerous to a person.

"in his geneology of morality he labels the ascetic as possessing more power than any other" Nietzsche, my friend, was NOT a cheerleader for asceticism! He was speaking specifically about the will to power there and giving a strong form of it in the ascetic. A line from "Beyond Good and Evil" part 47:
"Up to this point, wherever religious neurosis has appeared on earth, we find it tied up with three dangerous dietary rules: isolation, fasting, and sexual abstinence"

Furthermore, Anti-Christ, Chapter 8: "This poisoning goes a great deal further than most people think: I find the arrogant habit of the theologian among all who regard themselves as "idealists" -- among all who, by virtue of a higher point of departure, claim a right to rise above reality, and to look upon it with suspicion. . . The idealist, like the ecclesiastic, carries all sorts of lofty concepts in his hand ( -- and not only in his hand!); he launches them with benevolent contempt against "understanding," "the senses," "honor," "good living," "science". he sees such things as beneath him, as pernicious and seductive forces, on which "the spirit" soars as a pure thing-in-itself -- as if humility, chastity, poverty, in a word, holiness, had not already done much more damage to life than all imaginable horrors and vices. . . The pure spirit is a pure lie. . . So long as the priest, that professional denier, calumniator and poisoner of life, is accepted as a higher variety of man, there can be no answer to the question, What is truth? Truth has already been stood on its head when the obvious attorney of mere emptiness is mistaken for its representative."
Asceticism leads to emptiness and a butchering of the senses. However, Nietzsche and LaVey both agreed (In "Beyond" and in the Satanic Bible" that it is a form of masochism, for a life of self-denial is a life of self-abuse. And in Christianity, such masochism is greatly rewarded. And the guilt that comes with being a pious Christian (that burning sensation in the chest), alone, is a form of masochism for many believers. But for hedonists and lovers of all that life and the world have to offer, Christianity comes on in the form of what Nietzsche called "moralic acid." A morality in complete opposition to his. Nietzsche's having none of this guilt-ridden, absolutist, idealism.

"would an ascetic monk, or would nietzsche--the polite little man that he was, you might do well to note--ever say to another human being, as you do, "Bow down before me, for I am the highest embodiment of Human Life"? No." The "woulds" and "would-nots" of a monk are completely irrelavent at this point so I'll just explain LaVey's declaration there. It is a glimps into the mind of the Satanist. Only a jack ass would literally say it to some one, for god sakes! The statement is just the arrogance they feel inside, and it's also to say, they're not going to be bowing down to any man-made idol which is just a reflection of the human's ego who created it. It's a form of extreme individuality which rejects any and all slavishness

"there are horrible people who make such a mess of a problem that it is more difficult for those who come after. Those who cannot hit the nail on the head should please not swing the hammer at all!" Amen to that!!

Yes, it is clear that Nietzsche was an anti-nihilist. But he knew nihilism was necessary and inevitable to sweep the world one day right before the Ubermensch rose from the crisis which would follow.

Re: haha - I laugh at you but I cry on behalf of Nietzsche

"An action compelled by the instint of life proves that it is a right action by the amount of pleasure that goes with it: and yet that Nihilist, with his bowels of Christian dogmatism, understands pleasure as an objection . . . What destroys a man more quickly than to work, think and feel without inner necessity, without any deep personal desire, without pleasure?"

-- Nietzsche, The Anti-Christ, Chapter 11

and another...

also, after a quick look at your essay on god being evil, if he does somehow exist, i personally think he might not necessarily be 'good' or 'evil' per se, but perhaps very petty. Let me know what you think
