Challenging the myth of Satanic Ritual Abuse

This week this writer has spoken with or been in e-mail communication with the police, media and various organizations in what has become an information war with those promoting the Hampstead Satanic Ritual Abuse hoax.  Hoaxstead Research is a wordpress based blog that has been the principle source of information and coordination of those opposed to the Hampstead hoax.

Three cohorts of people who promote SRA.

There are at least three cohorts of people who would benefit from persuading the world Satanists abuse and kill children as part of a widespread cult of Satanic Ritual Abuse.  The first cohort are the therapists and other experts, who stand to make a vast fortune from an industry dealing with SRA.  The second cohort are the Christian evangelists, who would seek to wipe out Satanism on the back of fear and falsehood of SRA.  The third cohort are the conspiracy industry, who believe that an organized Satanic or Luciferian elite is running the world, and is responsible for all perceived injustices against the citizen.

Involvement of Satanists in Satanic Ritual Abuse is a fiction.

In reality there has never been any evidence of SRA, nor is child sexual abuse a particular problem in Satanism, in contrast to the widespread issues the Roman Catholic Church has with institutionalized child sexual abuse.  Most of those accused of SRA have been ordinary people, mostly Christians. Jews as a race are not Satanists, and the number of Satanists in political office are too few to make any viable difference in world politics.  The few isolated cases where an individual harmed a child whilst claiming an affiliation to Satanism on examination revealed an individual who was mentally ill or was largely ignorant about Satanism.  Satanic groups such as Church of Satan and Temple of Set ban any involvement of children with their activities.  Even the notorious Order of Nine Angles bans harm to children.

The fiction of those who claim to have suffered SRA.

Practically all those who claim SRA are vulnerable and suggestible individuals who have been led to believe their fiction by pro-SRA authority figures, or discredited techniques using hypnotherapy.  Adults who claim SRA are usually mentally ill, with many suffering Multiple Personality Disorder.  Children who claim SRA have in every case been coached to make those claims by an adult, in the case of Hampstead an adult used drugs, violence and intimidation to get two children to make their elaborate SRA fictions.  In the 1960/70’s the victim of sexual abuse might claim sexual abuse during an alien abduction, but in the following decades it has evolved into an elusive Satanic cult of abusers.  Whilst some who make SRA allegations were subject to real child abuse, sadly they have been persuaded to add fictions to their child abuse claims, making it impossible for them to obtain the support and justice they need.

Challenging SRA wherever it rises.

All child abuse should be reported, investigated and prosecuted.  If the child abuse is real, the investigation and prosecution will substantiate it.  If an individual believes they have been sexually abused, then they should report it to the police.  When individuals or groups go about claiming SRA without the support of a successful prosecution, they should be vigorously challenged.  Satanists and other minorities targeted by  SRA have a lot to lose if those who promote SRA fictions are successful in influencing the public mind: which includes loss of liberty to express their beliefs in a free democracy; having their children taken into care; being associated and treated in the same manner as a paedophile; being legitimately discriminated against, for instance employment positions.

A blogger who claimed to have suffered SRA was upset when this writer offered an alternative view to their situation.  Such individuals live in a cocoon of fantasy where all their readers reinforce their SRA delusion by accepting and giving support to those claims without question.  It is beneficial to those with mental issues to gain an alternative opinion, and it is good that SRA claims are seen to be challenged when they are made in the public domain.

Nature, Religion, Groups and Independent Satanism

The following are quick personal views on certain philosophical points:


External to self, nature is the ultimate authority.  Nature is the sum of everything. All that has ever existed, does exist and will exist is part of nature. There is nothing beyond or outside of nature.  Nature is an information system.  The language of nature is mathematical, organized in patterns.  If there is one external authority worth working with it is nature. The only truth worth knowing is what is observed, demonstrated and experienced in nature.


Satanic Temple, Greater Church of Lucifer and even the Church of Satan regard the branches of the Left Hand Path such as Satanism or Luciferianism as a religion.  There are many interpretations of what a religion is.  The current definition of religion by this writer is:

“An orientation that defines the self, the world and the place of self in the world. “

Based upon the above definition this writer considers Satanism as a religion.


Nature consists of patterns, the human mind can convert those patterns into tools in which to manipulate the world.  The car, the State, the internet are all tools.  Groups such as Satanic Temple or the Greater Church of Lucifer are also tools.  For those that join groups, the challenge, is the tool or the self master in their own life? Satanic Temple is a tool for the individual to manifest their will as social-political activists in the issue of separation of Church and State, or the rights of minorities.  The Greater Church of Lucifer is a tool that offers the first viable international point of meeting of Luciferians to learn about the complex philosophies of Luciferianism.  For those that participate with groups, there is nothing wrong with using any tool to benefit the self, but once the tool becomes the master of self, then those individuals no longer walk the Left Hand Path, they have embraced the Right Hand Path outlook.

Independent Satanism.

The current personal definition of the Left Hand Path:

“The path where the individual retains personal sovereignty over their choices and will to action in all situations in their life.”

Satanism is a branch of the Left Hand Path.  The essence of Satanism is the individual, the self.  In Satanism there is no master but self in their own life.  The focus of Satanism is purely selfish, focused on satisfying the needs, dreams and goals of self.  Only the Independent Satanist truly expresses the authentic core of Satanism, which is the selfish self.

Satanism is not Luciferianism, for the Luciferian is motivated to benefit humanity through their individual activities, whereas the Satanist focus starts and stops with self.

Just as a child needs a parent to act as a “tool” to help them in the world, there is a time when the adult must let go of such tools and seek their destiny alone. The groups are tools that the Satanist can use to advance their goals, but if the Satanist desires to follow the path of Independent Satanism, they must reject all affiliation with Satanic groups.

Satanic Ritual Abuse and the mentally ill

It is said that moths are attracted to the flame, and seems to me after following the painfully evolving SRA hoax in Hampstead that the characters that support SRA fall into one of two groups: the scammers who seek fame or financial gain from these hoaxes; and the mentally ill.  The SRA hoax in Hampstead feature scammers such as Abraham Christie, who initiated the hoax, and Belinda McKenzie, who perpetuated the hoax.  In my opinion the cranks and the mentally ill have swarmed onto the Hampstead and other SRA hoaxes like flies onto shit, orchestrated and manipulated by the Christies and McKenzies of this world.

It saddens me that an intelligent writer who has contributed a lot to the Left Hand Path has become the latest champion of SRA hoaxes. The individual, Nathaniel J Harris, has recently visited the Satanicviews blog and contributed a large number of comments in support of SRA, sadly pandering the same falsehoods and fictions as so many of these witchfinders.  Doing a background check on the internet there is a suggestion that Harris is mentally ill as per Mandrake of Oxford.

There is little point this blog contributing valuable time to debating SRA with the alleged mentally ill, especially when the evidence they present are clear fictions, lacking critical thinking and zero evidence.  We wish Harris the best in recovering from his mental challenges, but we will not be hosting any further of his comments.  His existing comments will be left visible for a while, but this blogger will probably delete some of them.
