LaVey is how i got my occult start. I do believe in most of his philosophies but i have grown a bit. To do with my page "they do exist" that happened and made me understand that while LaVey is an awesome man, he is still only expressing his opinions. So i do follow his philosophy as far as the do to others as they do to you and things like that. Which is most of his philosophy. I just have to believe in a deity because of what happened. I dont agree with that part. I still love him.
