Op-Based on Satan

The Origins of Satan By The Temples of Satan
The existence of a Horned God doesn’t originate from Christianity. Long before the Bible had ever been written, cavemen were carving sketches of horned gods into cave walls.

The oldest known carving dates back to the Paleolithic era, which extends from 2.5 million years ago to 10,000 B.C., and was found in the Cavern Des Trois Freres at Ariege, France.
The dating of this particular horned god is from 13,000 B.C. and the depiction that is carved into stone is that of a stag or a goat that is standing on its hind legs.

This was not odd in the least as our ancient ancestors used to don animal clothes in rituals to help them in their efforts to secure game and this carving would have been most relevant of the time.

Later those who were farmers and hunters as civilizations evolved worshiped a dark horned deity, this deity could have been known as Satan, however his name had not been codified or placed by humanity.
By the Bronze Age, horns had become a symbol of divinity, and horned gods were fairly common in such regions as Mesopotamia, where cultures like Sumer and Akkad, and Assyria and Babylonia flourished.

Sumerian’s were broad headed people, physically and linguistically different from all surrounding tribes that existed before or after them.
They arrive in Mesopotamia region almost instantly — as if from nowhere.
What is more perplexing is that their civilization, right from the start, had a government, a highly organized religion, schools that taught mathematics, a system of medicine and highly developed masonry skills. But even more astounding — the Sumerian’s could read and write! As far as we can tell, they were the first. Where did they come from?
A possible clue is perhaps in one of their earliest myths, which takes place on an island called Tilmun. It is believed by some historians to be the present day Persian Gulf island of Bahrain.
They have a myth of the god, Oannes – a half-human, half-fish figure who “came from the firmament to give men culture and learning.
” The firmament of this era consisted of both oceans and the heavens (Besides the firmament, there was the solid earth and the underworld.).But the best known of these Sumerian legends is The Epic of Gilgamesh.
But the best known of these Sumerian legends is The Epic of Gilgamesh.
Our traditional image of the horned, winged demon comes from the Sumerian Myth of Zu and focuses on the two brother-gods, Enki, who seems to have sympathy for the humans, and Enlil, who is a strict adherent to Anu’s orders.
The Nefilim were again presented with a potential mutiny when the Igigi, a form or Nefilim that worked in “the firmament,” or space, complained that they had no place to rest.
They noted that other Nefilim who mined, and certain deities assigned to land duty, were provided with a retreat. But they feared a confrontation with both Enki and Enlil and persuaded Zu to make their request known to the godhead.
Zu was an orphan. The stories about Zu mention that his ancestors were enemies of Anu and his clan (from events on their home planet), but only Enki was aware of this and he chose to keep the matter secret. Zu was adopted by the workers, the Igigi, and lived as one of them.
And it was with pleasure that he took their request for help to a meeting with Enki and Enlil. He was not their equal, but he was their kind.
Enlil was not easily convinced that a rest-stop for Igigi was necessary. He hesitated. His god-brother Enki, for some reason, suggested that the whole matter could be delayed indefinitely if Enlil would re-assign him to his own personal service.
Service to either brother would supersede any other commitments. The suggestion was made to have Zu guard the most sensitive area, atop the ziggurat pyramid, in the secret chamber where “the tablets of destinies” were kept.
This position was considered important enough to delay the Igigi request. Enlil agreed and made it so.
To the words that Enki spoke to him
the god Enlil consented.
At the sanctuary Zu took up his position
At the entrance to the chamber
Enlil had assigned him.
Zu envies the “tablets of destiny” and the power that they could bring. He perhaps even realized the tactics of Enlil. He finally steals the tablets of destiny and escapes back to “the heavens,” from where he begins to utilize the power of the tablets. Anu and the godhead are shocked.
The entire planet is in a state of crisis over this violation of trust. Anu orders that the tablets be restored to Enlil — but, the godhead moaned, “who will be able to fight Zu now that he has the tablets?”
It is decided that Enlil’s first born son (and heir to his authority), Ninurta, will do battle with Zu. Ultimately, the battle is won and Ninurta restores the tablets to their sacred chamber.
There is a dramatic trial in which all of the godhead sits in judgment and condemnation of Zu.
He is handed over to Ninurta who cuts his throat. This epic was so meaningful to the Sumerian’s that it was depicted on countless clay seals and artistic impressions. Zu is often depicted as a bird, with feathers and wings, to represent his allegiance to the Igigi, the ones “who fly.”
The epic was remembered in Babylonian and Assyrian rituals where a bull, representing the evil Zu, was sacrificed in the presence of the godhead. To Sumerian’s, Zu represented the ultimate personification of betrayal and he served as a metaphor of deception and affliction.
The “horned one” also has his links to Sumeria. Anu, Enlil and Enki were almost always depicted with horns, a beard and occasionally a tiara or widely brimmed hat.
The horns were a way of signifying their godhead identity, much the same as Christian art shows a halo to signify being “holy.” Did they have real horns? Probably not.
The addition of horns to the winged, bird-like feet of Zu completes the archetype of the devil. But the existence of real evil in the world attests to something more substantial than a myth or even an historical being in the past. What is the basis of evil today?
To the Sumerian godhead, evil was a reversion to the weakest impulses and drives of the being. Humans, being part animal (homo erectus) and part god (Anunaki) were prone to give in to their animal desires.
This was the evil in men — the residual primitive drives for self-preservation and procreation. Evil would always prevent man’s movement to become more Nefilim-like, by developing his Nefilim abilities. His lack of self control would naturally inhibit this process.
True, personified evil would result in the use of Nefilim powers for the attainment of self-interest. There have always been those rare individuals who have, perhaps by accident, developed some Nefilim abilities and then used them incorrectly.
Like the betrayal of Zu, the misuse of power is at the very core of our concept of defilement a word that substituted evil at the time.
By the Bronze Age, horns had become a symbol of divinity, and horned gods were fairly common in such regions as Mesopotamia, later being carried over to other regions in the world.
The number of horns came to indicate the importance of the god, with seven horns representing the acme of divinity-hence the seven horns of the Divine Lamb in the Bible’s Book of Revelations.
Interestingly, in the Bible, Satan is never described as having horns, even though the Church attempted to associate him with the god of the witches due to the presence of those appendages.
We have found that Satan is described most often as a entity and I refer to him as a entity, he has appeared to me as a force very indescribable, however his appearance is not unique to an accomplished adept or sorcerer with devotion and dedication.
Aside from numerous texts and biblical examples which are also interesting perhaps so interesting parallels appear more pertinent in Indian Texts, an area which fled Sumerian’s would have went to during thousand of years of war.
“The Sanskrit/Kashmiri word for “devil” is exactly as in English: dev-il (condition of being a devil). The amazing similarities between English and Sanskrit prompted Indian historian A. K. Mazumdar to write, “.English is essentially Rig-Vedic Sanskrit in disguise.
“Satan Was Most like a Saintly Indian King. It is explained that Satana was in reality a Gujarati city-state that lost a war to the Seunas or Zionists.
The name of this city was probably derived from that of a Jaina king and founder of a small Jaina sect. We are wrongly taught that a holy man named Mahavira founded Jainism. He was in reality a later reformer. Jainism itself existed millenniums before Mahavira was born.
No one really knows exactly when Mahavira lived. I believe that he achieved his enlightenment around 1000 B.C. Some years after his death, a pious Jaina king named Satan-ikas (Satan of Kasi) became King and his persona was identified as a dark being, go figure.
So it is not know as Christianity and Islam cannot proved verifiable origins, the Satanist can look to further history and realize Satan appeared to other cultures.
The name Satan, in its Biblical setting, is formed from the three Hebrew characters ש (Sin), ט (Tehth), and נ (Nun). With their vowel points, these letters form the word “Satan,” which, according to scholar Edward Langton, is “derived from a root which means ‘to oppose,’ or ‘to be or to act as an adversary.’” (Compare 1 Peter 5:8.)

It is noteworthy that the Hebrew text uses the expression has·Sa·tan′ (the Satan) in the accounts in Job, showing that reference is being made to the one who is outstandingly the resister of God.—See also Zechariah 3:1, 2, footnote in NW Reference edition.

1. often Shaitan Islam The Devil; Satan.
2. An evil spirit; a fiend.

[Arabic ayn, from Ethiopia
ayn, from Aramaic sn, from Hebrew n; see n in Semitic roots.]

Pan, the Greek god of shepherds, flocks, hunting and music, was another such horned god.
He was very much like Lucy’s faun in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe with the hindquarters, legs and horns of a goat.
Pan was first worshiped in the mountain district of Arcadia and came to represent many things, including the love of music and sexual prowess, both traits often provided to adepts in Traditional or Theistic Satanism.
The age old argument continues however he also appeared in other realms as well as a Horned Representative.
In Witchcraft , the Horned God is considered the Lord of the Underworld and of Death and all that comes after, as well as of Life and of Nature.
Increasingly the God of Underworld probably reveals himself as Satan.
His symbol is the Sun, and his reign is over the winter months of year, and darkness traits also definitive to Satan, and the Baphomet could have crossed in symbolism, this is unknown however as his origin remains a clouded mystery we find also a Horned God.
Different witchcraft traditions have different names for the deity we know as Satan.
Some use Pan, the horned woodland deity of Arcadia; some use Herne, the hunter of England; and others use Cernunnos.
So to answer the question Satan has come in many forms however his actual form is yet to be fully understood, he has appeared as those who argue God and Atheism, both Yahweh, Satan, Shaitan or whatever you finally decided to call him, he has been appearing for centuries, and his infernal power should never be taken lightly or with respect.
