Satanism is very different from other religions because most religions believe in altered states of conscious, spiritual flights, and having shamans. Satanism is all about being in the flesh and only believing in the things that are literal which they can see. There are priests that perform satanic rituals but the fact that any one can just be the priest when theres not one around is not very legit because since most satanic temple are hidden, probably because no one has any certificates to lead people religiously. Among contemporary historians satanism remains something of a mystery, and the meaning of relevant historical phenomena continues to be debated. Conspiracy thinking has been a major problem in the study of satanism considering how it was portrayed in rock music in the 1980’s.
