Satanism Vs Voodoo Vs Wiccan from CrimsonVirus5150's blog

Ok so I having an issue, I keep having people coming up to me asking me to perform hexas, curses ect. I have tried explaining the differences and its always the same thing, "Well I thought it was all the same!"


Of course, at to which point just head palm myself. Because I gotta pay rent. Anyways no matter what I say, its not seeping into their brains. Anyone got an idea of how to explain the difference of all 3 to these dumbasses?

Just take the cash and let them believe whatever it is that they believe.

All superstition is the same be it W. African, Celt, or otherwise.

I agree. Because when it comes right down to it they are all pretty much the same.

Satanist magic is whatever Anton pulled out his ass after Avon told him his book was too short. They are intentionially superstitious inversions of the others.

Now my knowledge of "pagan" magic is limited to the movie The Craft, but I gather salt and ethics are important there.

Voodoo (and all other Africa/Christian hybrids) are actually the closest to what Anton pulled out his ass because they are of the same canon of superstition, particularly the incorporation of "magical convergence points", imagery, and macabre aesthetics. And of course, incorporation of "evil".

And when considering Voodoo one cannot overlook The Catholic to its Protestant version called Santaria. Only the candles are depictions of Saints, hence the name, and the Catholic version is also not as bloody as the Protestant one. The santera's St. Anthony is equivocal Eleggua emissary to the good Gods, which is also equivocal to the voodooist's Papa Legba emissary to the bad Gods.

Fun Fact: Every Wal-Mart that sells religious candles is selling "occult ritual aides".

Very good point. I think it is also worth emphasizing the effect Christianization had on traditional West African folk magic. The beliefs kept themselves going among the many displaced slaves in The Southern USA and Latin America, and when it met Baptists, Lutherans, and Catholics Èṣù-Ẹlẹ́gbára/Esha was christianized over to other side. Transitioning from an African Hermes to the Devil at the crossroads in Voodoo named Legba to an Orisha doing the same thing in Santaria named Eleggua.

But they are all there at the nexus point between the two worlds, playing their respective role at the doorway to the other realms.

Wonder if they know The Mighty Vindex.

No need to explain anything.

Say you will perform. Let them pay.
Mumble something under your breath, throw dust and herbs.
Burn a paper with some drops of blood.

Run with their money.

No I am not gonna do that. Id rather teach them the difference, than something go wrong and there be more drama.

You know, I am just gonna say it, I can't see how they are different either.

In fact the only difference I see is the arbitrary placeholder of the altar to toss your tin foil coins upon.

Voodoo: Ritual/incantations of arbitrary words + random superstitious objects + faith + spirits = Desired outcome in accordance with will.

Santaria: Ritual/incantations of arbitrary words + random superstitious objects + faith + orishas = Desired outcome in accordance with will.

Satanism: Ritual/incantations of arbitrary words + random superstitious objects + faith + "the force" = Desired outcome in accordance with will.

Wicca: Ritual/incantations of arbitrary words + random superstitious objects + faith + nature = Desired outcome in accordance with will.

Christianity: Prayer/incantations of arbitrary words + random superstitious objects + faith + God = Desired outcome in accordance with will.

Is there something I am missing here?

I mean if there are people with preference towards a phenomenal existence (Anattā) in The West they are few and far between. A rare breed in oppositional defiance to the usefulness of abstraction in personal praxis.

While I don't agree with Serj's conclusion, he certainly nailed the ubiquitous nature of faith in all walks of life.

One could say that magic, ritual or how the universe works is fixed. These "religions " or practices are various subconscious approaches to the infinite or whatever one would like to call it. Before universalism "abrahamic ideology " all people had there way to access and understanding of the infinite in there cultures, mythology, customs and rights. Now it's all tainted with the monotheistic mind virus. Think of magic as the framework, it doesn't change but you can stretch any skin you choose over it.One could say that magic, ritual or how the universe works is fixed.

First, learn the difference yourself then you'll know what to say to them. But of course, take their money and run is my advice.
