What's more LeVine strongly believed that a time would soon come when everyone on earth would be revealed to be a sexual pervert or fetishists when that time came those individuals who were not perverted would be the exception.

Why of a young woman the leg had been biopsy and provided by Berkeley physician who attended Antanas lectures regularly. Diane served it with fried bananas and yams just as the Fiji.

Not content with this conspicuous reputation. Anton decided to take it one step further. He adopted a pet he would walk through the San Francisco streets, but not just any pet a black leopard name Soltan Anton treated him like just another child so much so that Zoltan slept in the same crib?

However, its presence betrayed some questionable judgment on Anton behalf, particularly when togue are left a scar on Carlos back, even after this Levin continued to let the lion sleep in her room. It appears that LeVine was more concerned with showing off his pet than. The safety of his own child. According to scientific American exhibition 'isms, such as this is typical of the grandiose narcissist.

It was around this time that LeVine had a life altering interaction with one of these patrons a police officer named Jack Webb. Web in Levin would regularly chat about magic and the occult one night. Speaking off the cuff Webb said, quote, why don't you make some use of all this magic stuff and the philosophy?

Do you realize that and quote while it seems almost inevitable that Anton le'veon's probably would have gone on to found the church of Satan, regardless? He credits this interaction with Jack Webb as being the catalyst to what would eventually become the first public highly visible and long lasting organization, which propounded coherent, satanic discourse. Anton, new his ideas could not be just a philosophy. That would be too easy for people to pass off our overlook. He would have to form a new religion. What's more? He would call his new organization at church consecrated not in the name of God. But in the name of Satan, there's always been a satanic underground. In the mid eighteenth century, sir Francis dash would formed the hellfire club. Several of England's most influential men would gather for satanic, feasting, reveling and debauchery.

"It was in San Francisco at an amusement park in nineteen fifty that twenty year old Levy meta blonde fifteen year old named Carol Lansing. She was the daughter of a Wells Fargo Bank executive who is described by friends as a miniature Jayne Mansfield. This was many years before lavar would become involved with the real thing. Despite the fact that Caroline sing was underage Levin began a relationship with her, and they were married a year later now this was right around the time of the Korean war and Antonova was desperate to avoid being drafted into the army before congress reformed the draft in nineteen seventy one a man was eligible for student deferment if he could demonstrate he was a fulltime student making satisfactory progress in his field of study so Lavalin signed up to study criminology at San Francisco City College where he established himself as a respectable student. Anton. I daughter Carla Morita was born in one thousand nine hundred fifty two in order to support his new family. He took up a position with the San Francisco police department as a police photographer in this job. He was confronted with the worst side of humanity on a daily basis. Levine saw children's splattered on the road by hit and run drivers women cut to pieces by jealous, husbands and the bloated bodies of suicide victims fished out of the San Francisco Bay speaking about this time, he said he came to the conclusion that if brutal carnage like this was God's will. Then he wanted nothing more to do with. God Levin said quote, there is no God. There's no supreme all powerful deity in the heavens. That cares about the lives of human beings. There's nobody up there who gives a shit man must be taught to answer to himself and other men for his actions, and quote, again, it is important to mention that many of. These facts might be some distance from the truth. When writing piece about Levin for Rolling Stone magazine in nineteen ninety one journalist Lawrence right checked with the San Francisco police department and discovered that no one named Howard Anton, lavar or Levy had ever worked for the force. Frank Moser, a retired police officer who worked in the photo department during that time says that LeVine was never in that department under any name, not only that city. College has no record of his enrollment. Once again, it seems as if Anton lavar may have created a false narrative of the events that led him to become the high priest of the first church of Satan. When asked about these inconsistencies by Lawrence right for his Rolling Stone. Article liba suggested that the police records were probably purged by the department to avoid embarrassment. This type of behavior is consistent with individuals suffering from narcissistic personality disorder, according to psychology today narcissist. This or era Ghent and preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited self importance this causes them to exaggerate their accomplishments and popularity the truth is it's highly unlikely that the San Francisco police department expunged Anton Levinas employment information from their records instead through his own self aggrandizement. He probably concocted a version of events that portrays him in the most impressive light possible. In nineteen fifty two Anton responsibilities at the police department expanded when he was assigned to the repeater eight hundred calls these were the nut calls, but no one else on the fourth wanted to deal with reports of ghosts weird noises. You Afo sightings and various things that go bump in the night. Anton, Levy unsurprisingly was delighted with this opportunity and threw himself headlong into paranormal investigation. He would visit houses and set traps for ghosts, including a camera with a sensitive trigger. Loaded with infrared film to record echo plasma activity. However, Anton quickly discover that the majority of paranormal phenomena that people reported were easily explainable a rusty Ken whistling in the wind or a cat trapped in the attic early on when he would present the residence with these simple cause of their problems..

"Anton was at a house party with his friends when he walked into a room to find a group of teenagers. Wrestling one of the teens was wrestling with a girl on the ground at one point her dress flipped up and her underwear was visible. According to Tony in this moment, the sight of her white plump, thighs, blond hair and translucent skin caused him to experience what he terms erotic crystallization inertia or ECI Tony claims that ECI is the point at which sexual archetype or fetishes fixed. The instant ones erotic. Instincts. Are I peaked lives perpetually in once memory as vivid and stimulating as the moment. It first occurred. However, E C, I is not a recognized psychological phenomenon rather a term concocted by Levy to explain that. He would go on to be romantically involved with many women who shared a similar appearance, blonde hair and pale skin. This is an example of how Levin has attempted to retroactively construct a tidy narrative of his own life from an early age people develop the cognitive skills needed to create a coherent life story for themselves. According to a two thousand eleven study by Elaine Reese, these include causal, coherence, the ability to describe how one event led to another and the Matic coherence, the ability to identify overarching values and motifs that recur throughout the story. The truth is many of the significant moments in our lives are often random as such. They may not always. Make for a good story. Anton, however, seems very adamant that the story of his life be an intriguing one as we delve further will see even more extreme instances of this in nineteen Forty-six likely inspired by the stories told to him by his grandmother Labib dropped out of his junior year of high school and joined the CLYDE Beatty circus his first job there was playing Hammond. Organ accompaniment for circa sacks Livy said, quote, I got to rub elbows with human oddities freaks dancers showgirls who wanted to be stars. It was a chance to meet people who were really marginal. And quote, this was low base first exposure to social outcasts, and he found that he felt at home among them during this period le'veon's musical talents led him to being recruited by traveling evangelists to play gospel tunes during their services. This inadvertently led him to having a critical insight into the nature of religion Levin said quote. On Saturday night. I would see men lusting after half naked girls. Dancing at the carnival and on Sunday morning when I was playing the organ for ten show evangelists at the other end of the carnival lot. I would see these same men sitting in the pews with their wives and children asking God. Forgive them in purge them of their carnal, desires and next Saturday night. They be back at the carnival or some other place of indulgence, and quote Levay concluded that the Christian church thrived on hypocrisy, and that man's carnal nature would always win out. This idea would later become one of the founding principles of the church of Satan at age seventeen Levin began asking friends to call him, Anton instead of his childhood nickname of Tony by this point. Anton was not only playing music at the circus. He was taming eight Nubian lions and four Bengal Tigers alone in the big cage. He developed a close relationship with and an affection for these big cats which would last well. Well into adulthood during this time Lavelle so joined the carnival and amusement park, circuit working. Some of the biggest traveling shows on the Pacific coast playing Colli ABI Woerlitz or band, Oregon or Hammond along every midway Levin found that he felt at home among the loners drifters and marginal types who were attracted to the cynical carnival atmosphere. According to say, it was here that he learned how much people will pay to be fooled. How desperately they want to escape their own dull lives one can't help. But think that this revelation may have planted the seed for what would eventually become the church of Satan will Willoughby's image at this point had become that of a stereotypical Carney flashy sports coats, hand painted ties and a pencil thin mustache.

"My mother was the same way. They Riveria paranoid about the neighbors. And what people thought of them in a way, it was good. I was allowed to take my own lead in that sense. I couldn't have chosen better parents and quote Levin described his religious background at this time as. Is very I Kana classic and extremely permissive. His parents didn't participate in religion and never pushed him into it going so far as to tell him that another word for God is nature. Levin said, quote, we did have relatives who were Christian and Jewish. I had an ad who was a Christian scientist at an atheist uncle you could say I grew up a second generation non-believer or cynic and quote Levin or Tony as he was known then began to play music at the age of five he claims, he went into a music store with his mother and spontaneously picked out a tune out of harp. His parents were supportive of his newfound interest, and he went on to try number of different instruments, most notably the pipe organ and the client p this newfound passion would continue throughout his entire life. When lavar was seven years old. He became obsessed with tales of the supernatural and occult too young to fully understand what he was reading. He turned to his. Maternal grandmother Luebbe Colton who regaled young Tony with the mysteries of her homeland Transylvania. She told him of the legend of Dracula about bloody battles fought against Turkish and Russian invaders and between Hungary and Romania over the right of rule. She even told him about the eccentrics in his own family, including her brother a bear trainer who traveled with carnivals and circuses from the Black Sea to Hungary, this ladder detail would prove particularly influential later in Tony's childhood, according to Levin, one thing the majority of satanists have in common is that they were stigmatized as youths. It's this stigmatism that steers them towards satanism later in life, his stigma. He claims was his unattractive. Face levin. Said quote, I was odd-looking by today's standards. I would've looked fine. But in nineteen thirty nine I was not cute. I was certainly not a van Johnson or John Wayne and. Quote, he spoke of the horror of going to gym class with other boys, which was so great that he would get a doctor's note to avoid it to some this may not sound too dissimilar to what a lot of children experience in their early years. However, it appears Levin also experienced another stigma as a child the stigma of having a human tale in blanche Barton's authorized, nineteen ninety biography of the secret life of a satanist. She writes that Anton had an extra vertebrae removed near the end of his spine that formed a prehensile tail this appendage occurs in about one in every one hundred thousand births this tailgate Tony an enormous amount of trouble as an eleven year old he had to have a drain several times and even learned to sit on chairs sideways has to avoid the pain one night when it became Rian flamed Anton once again visited the hospital to have drained. However, there are no rooms available at the hospital. So the doctors could only administer a local anesthetic. The pain was so great Tony says he bit through the rubber pad. He was lying on and bent the steel bar on the side of the gurney. He eventually had the tail removed at the age of twelve by the age of sixteen. He was beginning to have his first romantic relationships with women, however because of his already sinister appearance most of his girlfriend's chose to meet him in secret. So that their parents wouldn't see the type of boy their daughter was keeping company this was upsetting for Tony he wished he could look normal like other boys, his age Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here. And throughout the episode. Please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, but she has done a lot of research for the show. Thanks, greg. According to psychology today, children who experienced betrayal, rejection and other deep wounds are at risk of developing narcissistic, personality disorder these individuals spend their adult lives trying to fend off such feelings by acquiring success. S wealth celebrity status and power when we look further into LA's adult life will see that he seems to constantly seek out celebrity and power. This need is likely rooted in these negative early childhood experiences. It was also at age sixteen that Tony had an experience. He claimed would shape is taste and the opposite sex for the remainder of his life..

"When Anton Zander Lavi founded the church of Satan in nineteen sixty six he wanted to make Christianity, which he saw as fostering stupidity and dull complacency obsolete. This was an organization for non joiners, the alienated individuals who rejected traditional religion and instead adopted Satan the original rebel as their patron. Anton Antonova founded the church out of his home in San Francisco, Victorian, home that was dubbed the black house. His many followers would gather here to bear witness to his weekly satanic rituals in nineteen sixty nine. He published the satanic bible, which has been described as the most important document to influence contemporary satanism at the height of his fame. Levine was considered by many to be the real life incarnation of Satan. In fact, he was so synonymous with the devil. So that when people would address mail to Satan, the post office would deliver it directly to him Levin hobnobbed with movie stars and boasted of affairs with Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. He was high priest of the church until his death in nineteen Ninety-seven in two thousand one Peter h Gilmore was appointed. As his successor a position he still holds to this day. The organization's headquarters has since moved to hell's kitchen in New York City since the organization has never disclosed official membership numbers. The number of church followers is a mystery to this day, some estimates place membership as high as twenty thousand others as low as three hundred this week, we're going to take a look at Anton avai and how he transformed from a simple circus musician into a figure many consider the most evil man in the world next week.
