Having recently been confronted by evidence that Satan really does exist, I have, as befits anyone with a scientific outlook, become a Satanist.
The normal objections - 'you can't have Satan without a creator divinity' etc - don't apply because since I am now religious it follows logically that logic is optional.
So I now worship the Satan who's existence has been revealed here at Frihost. I'm not yet sure what Satan wishes me to do, but I'm getting a strong feeling of hunger and, in line with precedent in this field, I think it is safe to assume that any personal feelings I get can be called 'revealed truth' and ascribed to my Deity. It therefore follows, using theology, that Satan causes hunger.
The first existential crisis of my new religion is - If Satan causes hunger, is Satan responsible for sating that hunger? Specifically, does the chicken Fajita that I am about to munch come directly from Satan?
If so, is this a sign that Satan especially approves of chicken fajitas? And is the chicken fajita therefore holy food? Theological reasoning seems clear on this - since the notion cannot be refuted, it must be true.
So, I am now making some progress. Starting from first principles, I have deduced the existence of Satan, further deduced that Satan is the only deity, and finally deduced that the chicken fajita is Satan's holy food.
I must think more about my new religion......
