%-P So you are serious then? I thought it was all a joke. Honestly. You see I am the founder of The Holy Orthodox Hitteon Church back in 1977 and that was a joke, but it seems 25,000 plus people took it as the real thing and I was not able to completely do away with it even after I announced it was a hoax, so how was I to know you were serious?
But how on earth is it you would even want a religion if you don’t believe in the supernatural? Why would you want a religion unless like you wanted to make fun of religion? Back in the mid seventies I attended the Church of Satan once with a friend and I thought at the time I understood they actually believed in Satan and believed he was the good guy and God was the bad guy. That Satan did not like how God was running things so he tried over throwing God, but God over came him instead and placed him above all evil. Except it was the other way around according to Satan; God was the evil one and Satan was the holy divine one, but God mislead the humans into believing he was the good one and Satan the bad one. Now according to the bible this I can believe since God is the one going around doing bad things while Satan seems to just sit around not bothering anyone or any thing. Any way this was what my friend told me who was a member of the Church of Satan. However at the time I was loosing my doubts about God, angels, Satan, demons and the bible and in 1977 decided to see if I could start my own religion based on witchcraft, Christianity, paganism, fantasy and made up stuff to see if perhaps other religions started the same way. It was to be an experiment. A friend said it would never work, but if I could get at least five people to believe in my new religion in one year he would give me one hundred dollars, if not I should give him one hundred dollars. I thought it was a safe bet and took him up on it. Within one year I had 100 believers, but within a month that I started I got six people and got my $100! Within 30 years the ranks had grown to 25,000 members world wide with several splinter groups broke off from it and then I announced it was a hoax and why I did it, but a third of the people did not believe me and continued with the religion and although I do not know how many Hitteons there are now I would estimate around 5,000 to upwards of 12,000 world wide. I have the Q’R'Beth manuscript and one copy of the smaller version of it that was published in 1987. And now I hear the inside dogma of the Church of Satan sounds like the Holy Orthodox Hitteon Faith, so I figured it was all a joke too or at least an experiment.
But it sounds like it may not be either, but how anyone could say they are an atheist and a believer of something supernatural (or at least naming it after a supernatural being) I just absolutely do not understand for the life of me if indeed you are really serious and you say you belong or at least believe in it.
