Satanism and the Environment

New page: "Satanism and Environmentalism" by Vexen Crabtree

The conclusion reads:

The tenets of Satanism are geared naturally towards environmentalism, although whether or not individual Satanists draw these conclusions or act on them is entirely a personal matter, the religion or philosophy of Satanism has an implicit direction towards environmental protectionism. Short-term energy usage at the expense of long-term planetary health is irresponsible, it harms our children and it is stupid. These run against the 6th Satanic Statement (responsibility to the responsible), the 11th Satanic Rule of the Earth (do not harm children), and the cardinal Satanic Sin (stupidity). It is Satan's personified will that we remain powerful and intelligent (the Prometheus mentality) and we simply can't do that on a crippled planet.

You do realise that conclusion reads in with Paganism and not being a dickhead to the planet? And being powerful and bright means we stay alive etc etc.

There's a coincidence.

Whilst a lot of Satanist theo/philosophy isn't quite for me, I totally agree that stupidity is the cardinal sin. So many of the things wrong with the world - environmental degradation included - wouldn't be problems if people were better educated, better informed, more thoughtful, and less stupid. :)
