I possess more exalted titles than I have ever been able to count. I am supposed to know more secret signs, tokens, passwords, grandwords, grips, and so on, than I could actually learn in a dozen lives. An elephant would break down under the insignia I am entitled to wear. ~ Aleister Crowley, British Satanist, Confessions of a Heretic
Karl Marx was a Satan worshipper...he joined a satanic cult that featured long unkempt beards. Every picture of Karl Marx depicts such. ~ Ralph Epperson Secret Societies (audiotape 1987)

"An Elephant Would Break Down..."
Crowley claimed that from Bucharest, Hungary to Salt Lake City, Utah, he was showered with honors, titles, degrees and occult paraphernalia. So much was he recognized that a bemused Crowley wittily remarked, "An elephant would break down under the insignia I am entitled to wear."2 It was Napoleon who once observed how easy it is to win men over through flattery simply by bequeathing a title to them or pinning a medal or token on their chest.
Crowley's wicked philosophies and his ritual experimentation ~ such as the "Babalon Working" ritual designed to invoke the coming of Antichrist ~ greatly inspired copycats and imitators. Such include L. Ron Hubbard, who reportedly studied Crowley's works and went on to found the fake religion called Scientology; Anton LaVey, who founded the Church of Satan and authored The Satanic Bible; and Alfred Kinsey, notorious sex researcher whose Kinsey Institute pandered to kinky homosexuals and vicious pedophiles.3
Crowley's adoption of the hermaphroditic, horned goat-God Baphomet as his own magical name indicates how powerful is this idol to Illuminists. Crowley certainly knew who Baphomet represents. In his book, Magic in Theory and Practice, he states:
This serpent, Satan, is not the enemy of man... He is 'The Devil' of the (Egyptian) Book of Thoth, and his emblem is 'Baphomet,' the Androgyne who is the hieroglyph of arcane perfection...But moreover his letter is Ayin, the Eye; he is Light and his zodiacal image is Capricornus, that leaping goat whose attribute is liberty.4
Now Baphomet, the androgynous horned, half man-woman, half goat God of the medieval Knights Templars, inculcates this "Do your own thing" philosophy of Illuminism. He is the very image of the freethinker, the Mason and Illuminist who raises the "Torch of Liberty" ~ the fire of hell and light of Lucifer. The Knights Templar, predecessor to today's Freemasons, revered Baphomet as the deity of wisdom. Look closely at the reverse side of the U.S. dollar bill and you will find the horns of Baphomet meticulously designed and imbedded.
In this chapter, you will discover more about Baphomet; about the Green Man; about Pan, the horned witch God; and about Crowley and his Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). Since the days of Alexander the Great, the horned God has been worshipped by a significant portion of mankind. The Bible records, for example, the worship of Baal, the horned fire God.
Of Stars and Goatees
In recent times, Communist revolutionaries adopted the Star, also symbol of Baphomet (see the star on the Baphomet goat's forehead in this chapter), and some ~ Karl Marx, Che Gueverra and others ~ adopted the huge and straggly beard in honor of the goatee of Baphomet, the deity whom they secretly worshipped.
"The essence of Satanism is...the beard of wisdom on the goat within the inverted star."5
The He Goat of Prophecy
Significant, indeed, is the biblical passage in Daniel 8:8-22, which symbolically pictures a great world leader in the last days as a "he goat." This he goat, say the scriptures, becomes very strong and his power is symbolized by a horn that arises from his forehead.
ED Noor: I just happened to have in my archives this photograph of the following baptism and the child is Zeena.
The Baptism of a Satanic Witch
In the ceremonies of pagan religions, baptisms ~ counterfeits of the Christian sacrament ~ were conducted as rites of initiation. Below is the modern-day account of one such dark baptism, exactly as it is recorded in the book, The Satanic Witch, by Anton LaVey, head of the Church of Satan. LaVey has declared that the goal of his unholy church is to usher in a "New Age." (The person being baptized is LaVey's daughter, Zeena, and the words are hers.)
My baptism was indeed the reversal of a Christian baptism. Instead of being dunked into a cold bath by a strange, sexless man to be cleansed of "original sin," we celebrated man and nature as they really are.
As I sat wearing the red robe my mother made that morning, I toyed with the Baphomet amulet dangling around my neck. Imperiously, I surveyed the sea of black-hooded celebrants. It took me a few years to realize that some of them may have been more fascinated with the naked woman sprawled on the altar than with me. The gothic strains of a Hammond organ echoed against the black and red walls...I delighted in being the focal point of all this activity.
My father, the High Priest, raised his ceremonial sword in benediction. I felt a great sense of warmth and respect. How many people can honestly say they have this feeling at any point in their life?"I have something they don't," I thought proudly, in keeping with the indulgent philosophy of Satanism.Since that night I understood what it means to be a Satanic Witch, a woman who makes full use of her feminine wiles. Throughout my life I would replay the words intoned during my baptism:
The many footed walkers give you the strength, the power of red fang and claw, all the madly dancing demons fill you with the lost knowledge of ancient ones. Small sorceress, the most natural and true magician, your tiny hands have the power to pull the living heavens down and from its shards build a monument to your own sweet indulgence... And with these others in the devil's fane, you will so cause the heads of men to reel and spin, you will fill them with desire. And so we dedicate your life to love, to passion, to indulgence, and to Satan and the way of darkness, fane.Hail Zeena! Hail Satan!
Recently, countless youth have been brought into Satan's kingdom through movies, TV cartoons, video games, comic books, and other means. The Harry Potter witchcraft books have initiated many into the darkest elements of hellishness. Occult fantasy movies (Star Wars, Jedi, etc.) have erased any conception of absolutes and have increasingly brought youth into satanic philosophies.
Pan, whose father is Hermes, God of secrecy, is often pictured as the Green Man, a vegetation-covered deity. The tale of the jolly green giant is a myth begun by his admirers. Who, really, is Pan? Well, of course, Pan is simply the Devil in a new disguise.
"That which we must say to the CROWD is we worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition. To YOU Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the brethren of the 32nd, 31st and 30th degrees ~ the MASONIC RELIGION should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the doctrine . If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay (Jesus)... calumniate (spread false and harmful statements about) him?.. YES, LUCIFER IS God..."
