    radiclol i've had a quick look online but it all seems very biased one way or the other, i'd suggest you do your own research if you're curious and make your own mind up about it, the very little i've read/heard about him suggests he's either a fake or suggests he's a mad man (amongst other things!):scratch: very confusing.

    The Beast

    Post  Soaring Bird on Thu Sep 10, 2009 1:12 am

    Hi Rad,
    He was also known as The Beast, some say like Violet has said, he was a madman and dealt with the Black Arts others say he was very famous for his Magick. Its a hard one to decide unless you read all thats written about him but there is so much, I started reading and became diverted before I had made my mind up.

    I spent over an hour last night researching him and the organizations that he belonged to. I found very little to like about the person.

    Maybe it has a little bit to do with the fact that he LIKED referring to himself as the Beast in Revelations during a period of time when he KNEW the religious implications of making any references to it in regard to himself? Or the fact that he was hedonistic? Or that the based much of what he did on sex?

    I think that he used his wealth to push the envelope of his desires, using secret societies and magic to cover what he did.

    Of course, this is just my personal opinion. He could have been a perfectly nice person, but....

    Well he was not one that a lot of people would find themselves associating with that's for sure.What are your thoughts concerning HP Lovecraft? http://www.satansheaven.com/necronomicon.htm
