What's your opinion of Michael W. Ford? | Forum

Personally, I'm not really a fan or impressed with his books, but to each his own. What are your thoughts?

To me, he is a brilliant mind and a excellent Luciferian.

I wish he wouldn't "borrow" without citing his sources. We would like to know where he got his information, and why it is relevant. When a person doesn't cite, its easier to manipulate the information to make it fit the "facts" being presented. He may be afraid that if he cites his work, he won't be seen as so "brilliant" and excellent. This is far from the truth, as he would actually legitimize his work, making it more intellectual

However he is your typical occultist, liberally borrowing from various sources and telling his own version of what he practices. We can't expect the occult to be factual can we?

I guess the question I would ask is regarding the validity of what someone "receives." Every body here is probably familiar with the whole akashic record vault yada yada but how would you go about citing something like that? I suppose you just do it like Crowley or Moses. A god told me. 

(Someone like how I put Crowley up there with Moses?? Not a coincidence. They both liked Egyptian magic.)

Zoramonkey That was SO well said!! I couldn't possibly agree with you more, Thinking for yourself is EXACTLY what satanism is about and satan WOULD respect you for standing up for what you believe in and not taking shit from anyone even him.

In all honesty I'm too much in my early stages of Satanism to comment one way or the other.
I will say this though, whereas there are many here who are much more qualified to comment than I am at this moment in time, I have been able to learn things from his various Youtube videos, so for me there is something.
OK, what I have have learned is basic and to a lot of you it would seem irrelevant, but I fully intend to move on from the stage I am at now.

from what I've seen hes very cool. taking from the archetype of Lucifer to make a life philosophy and magic and stuff, good stuff.

Personally I think Mr. Fords work can be beneficial like any other persons work for someone who is new on the Path.

I have never read a book by Ford cover to cover but I have watch several of his YouTube videos and I think what he says is for the most part on point.

...you'd think I might be into his stuff if you know me, but, my interpretaion, is he's just tryin' to do with "lucifer" and the associated ism, what LaVey did with satanism. In one regard, I get the endeavor and understand the motivations that might exist to do so, and for that, I'm like, "go 'head...do that shit..." , but then to incorporate notions of theism and magic for fux sake...

Not a fan, but I'd probably have a good conversation with em til my bullshit detector goes off...I remember, he used to pop into the chatroom every once in a while, back in 09-13. I did recall him claiming Luciferian, and having an opinion that was indifferent for the most part, as I wasn't impressed with anything that he ever said necessarily, and the suggestions of theism and magic I find to be depressingly lamentful. I didn't think he'd get the traction that he has, but it seems people will by the same bullshit as long as it's in a different wrapper...Philosophically speaking, fuck that dude. I find his "luciferianism" to be weak sauce...and I do like my sauce...
