That's not a good question. It's a stupid question that shows people how stupid you are. It's a question that shows the lack of even the most basic research.

Why don't atheists tell satanists that the devil isn't real? Because satanists themselves say the devil isn't real.

Satanists don't believe in the devil! Did you even bother to ever look them up before forming an opinion?

Do you like spewing misinformed bullshit and looking dumb?

From fucking wikipedia, so really the first Google result you should look at:

The church does not believe in the Devil, nor a Christian or Islamic notion of Satan.[3] High priest Peter H. Gilmore describes its members as "skeptical atheists", embracing the Hebrew root of the word "Satan" as "adversary".

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Satan

Fuck, I'm so tired of uninformed people thinking they can have opinions without knowing even the most basic thing about a subject.

Fucking stop being stupid, ok?

I fear it’s not quite so easy as that.

You literally have the entire existence of human knowledge at your fingertips, and y'all are using it to jerk off and argue with strangers on Voat.

If they're atheists, why not call themselves atheists?

Fucking stop being stupid, ok?

Say "fuck" a few more times too, I don't believe that people will take you seriously if you don't say "fuck" enough. Jeeze.

Fucking stupid people, man.

Buddhists are technically athiest, but they have formed a philosophy/system of belief outside of that. People can still hold belief systems that don't rely on a central god.

Because in addition to being atheists, they're also angsty teenagers trying too hard to be edgy.

They called themselves satanist to trigger christians. Because the whole goal was equality under the law, preventing morale based laws which infringe on basic freedoms and keeping state and religion seperated.

Correct. The fact that Satanists have been around for decades and people still don't know this shows the level of brainwashing out there. Look, if you don't like someone because they don't like or believe in your specific Guy In The Sky, that's your choice but don't spread or make opinions on false information.

The clarification here is that Satanists are non-commital atheists who believe that IF God is real, he's evil. And it is Luciferians who worship the devil as their savior, which is absurdity in the most ridiculous sense. Like somehow a creation of God could offer such a thing as salvation from death. I have thought about it a bit... Perhaps lucifer keeps souls trapped in the earthly plane of existence through various means of deception. As he apparently has some reign over Earth. I often wonder how to save those so far gone from God's plan. Definitely gets convoluded quickly.

Here's the mind blowing question: Why earth?

Or to rephrase that: Why not somewhere else?

Such a simple question but puts it in some interesting perspective.

Better question: of all the shit going on in the world, why is religion their priority?

For most of us, it isn't. I became atheist...fucking who knows when...because I had super religious grandparents that would...not...shut...the...fuck...up...about....it....

So what is a 8 year old to do? Well - Look up all the reasons why christianity is bullshit, and spew it back at the grandparents when they start preaching! Well...looking up those reasons, and then actually sitting down and reading the full king james edition of the bible from front to back, I learned a lot about questioning everything. At one point I was less atheist as I was "anti-religion" in general. But being non-religious is kind of depressing when you don't have an imaginary friend, and imaginary afterlife - So eventually I learned just to respect people and their beliefs, because many of them wouldn't be able to live in this world without some sort of crutch to help them get through life. It's much easier for those with religion because they can lie to themselves and say "Eventually I'll be in paradise!", "It's gods plan, this is just a test!", etc. I'm fine with that. So most of the times I don't even give a flying fuck...until people start preaching like my grandparents did. And since I'm on voat you can guess what I love doing. Arguing! So then it's fun to argue with religious people and make them question their own beliefs. You just have to be careful about it, because going about it the wrong way just causes them to dig their heels in.

So TL;DR: It's not. You just imagine it to be.

Well a few particular religions are the root cause of quite a lot of the shit going on in the world. My question is why do Athiests get awfully quiet about those religions?

They don't. Jews and Muslims are both shit. Atheist here and I still understand that Christianity is essentially the most 'evolved' form of this fakery. At least it has some purpose (multiplying a mans work by pushing marriage and chaining him to one woman, etc)

They do, it's just that there are way more Christians than Satanists. This means that the religion they most encounter is Christianity. And OFC they're going to do most of their mocking on the religion they most encounter and have the most experience with.

Most atheists I find are annoying know-it-all neckbeards.

A better question is asking why they don't go after Islam

They do. You likely aren't a muhammadian and you likely don't have any muhammadian friends so you don't hear about it.

You can start here.

There's also the fact that I don't follow any "atheist" people, or people that push the stereotypical "atheist" view so espoused by Dawkins or certain subreddits. I do recall Dawkins coming under fire for criticizing Islam though.

Maybe because nobody is shoving Satanism down anyone's throat.
