Reason for removal of This post
Some of you might be wondering why I removed this post. Granted it was interesting, but ...., I've come to my senses, had an epiphany so to speak.

I recently have been browsing around on the Theistic Satanism site created by Diane Vera. Whilst browsing around the Rituals section and copying/printing various things for my Black Book (I can't stand calling it a Book of Shadows, too .... wiccan), I discovered a reference to This Site Mirror. I browsed the Sermons section, wondering why this individuals website would be copied by Diane. I stumbled upon this, and I thought I should share it. It's changed my perspective on Christianity, and Theology in general. I've come to realize, there is no point in arguing with Fundamentalists, no sense in pointing out it's flaws.

Coming soon - Sigil Magick? ... Maybe ....
Well, this is turning out to be quite interesting. I've been working on a guide to post here titled "Sigils - Theory, Creation, and Magickal Practice". Problem is, it's not done yet, and I have been writing it non-stop for over 12 hours now. I have come to realize exactly how broad and yet specific a topic this is. Long story short, this Satanist has bitten off more than she can chew.

I honestly have no idea when it will be complete, if such a work can ever truly be finished anyway. Another problem I have encountered is that it is so large, that how I could even post it in it's entirety on here boggels the mind. It would have to be divided into sections, reformatted, etc. And finding hosting for all those illustrations ... gheesh!

I have also encountered a problem on Ethical grounds.This is very, very, powerful stuff. Considering this is supposed to be a Grimoire of sorts for beginners, I'm not even sure if my posting of it would be justifiable. This is practically going to be The Encyclopedia Sigilicum. I'm trying to cover all the bases without getting too in depth on one particular area.

Any suggestions?

Ordo Pallidus Serpens
The Ordo Pallidus Serpens is now accepting applications from around the Columbus and Central-Ohio area. It is my personal, as in I founded it, Theistic Satanism / Demonolatry Order. Before I delve into exact details about it, I would like to make one thing clear. Although I founded it, I am not in any way to be regarded as High Priest/ess! Although I will have a hand in it's development and organization, I'm just a standard clergy member, nothing more. Consider me a member of the High council or similiar, I am not the say all and command all ruler of the Order.

With that out of the way, we are now onto

High Hopes -Websites, Books, and Magic/k Debate
Opusculus Coepi

Well, I started work on the Publishable version of Libri Al Vel Inchoatus today. After about 15 minutes of writing, I was 3 pages in. Not bad, ehh? I should have the first few chapters done by the end of the week at this rate. As always, it will be available to a select few for free as a PDF, but all of you can download the first 2 or 3 chapters for free as soon as they are finished. Print copy's, on the other hand, will be available for a little over production cost from Lulu.com (Hopefully). Check out my Title Page.

Although it will probably never reach fruition, I've decided to start a site/community for Theistic Satanists, Luciferians, and Demonolators. I shall be purchasing TheisticSatanism.Net soon, and will have dedicated hosting purchased shortly thereafter. The hope is to provide a basic Web community along with an open Grimoire (although Moderated). I will also provide personal, private Book of Shadows space to members (a Basic membership will be free), message boards, and possibly some form of Online congregation. But, like I named this entry, 'tis all High hopes. But, as the song goes!

Magic or Magick?
I've decided to start sticking with Magic spelled without the K for the reason that, apparantly, it's been bothering people that I seem to make the K optional. I cannot help that, I feel that the K should be optional. I understand that their is a difference between Magic and Magick, but it's only a word and many people still look for spells and such by spelling it without the K (Mostly the inexperienced). Seeing as to how I'm making this Grimoire for the inexperienced, I shall continue to use Magic spelled without the K. If that bothers enough people, I will once again start making the K appear after a backslash as I have been doing, but I will never constantly and consistently spell magic with the K. Kapesh?

Altars, Supplies, and A lil Prost! Info ...
"Rite to Leviathan", Not gonna happen this year?

After much venturing in the wilderness I call the woods behind my house, I've come to realize there is nowhere to do my usual Rite to Leviathan (Sunday, April 29th). It's just way to polluted, both spiritually and by garbage. I managed to find one nice open area suitable for the rite and have the extra 2 people with me, but I scraped the idea of using it as soon as I realized that directly behind the tree's was someone's house. We don't need someone interrupting the rite or calling the cops on us. That would require some explanations and trickery out the ass. :-/
I'm slowly running out of idea's on where to do this, and it's really starting to suck. I guess it doesn't matter all that much. I highly doubt that Andy is interested, and I believe Dalan is going to be in Kentucky for that weekend anyway. But enough with the personal, let's kick this Grimoire into gear, shall we?
