Anyone know who Crowley was?

Anyone know who Aleister Crowley was? Off the top of your minds?
Lol. No, not a satanist in the sense of actual satanism. I wouldn’t call him any more evil than any other religous man.
Anton LaVey would have been seventeen at Crowley’s death. While he was an influence, mainly by his works, he wasn’t friends with LaVey. LaVey claimed to be the reincarnation of Crowley, even though he was born before the latter died of a lung infection, not an opium od.

  1. Yes. An evil man. Follower of the Golden Dawn and then started something of his own. A bit of a nut case too. And very promiscuous. L. Ron Hubbard was one of his students, and he was Schizophrenic and off his meds most of the time.
    My friend says that Voldemort in the Harry Potter movies was based on Crowley.

  2. Yes, the British Spiritualist. Friend and teacher to Anton LaVey. Died of drug overdose. One of the Led Zeppelin guys bought his house.

  3. …he knew Hitler and Churchill too.
    Mountaineer and chess player, magician and spy.
    A thouroughly interesting bloke from a Royal Leamington Spa brewing family.

  4. Aleister Crowley, born Edward Alexander Crowley, (12 October 1875 — 1 December 1947), was an English occultist, writer, mountaineer, poet, spy and yogi. He was an influential member of several occult organizations, including the Golden Dawn, the A∴A∴, and Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.), and is best known today for his occult writings, especially The Book of the Law, the central sacred text of Thelema. He gained much notoriety during his lifetime, and was dubbed “The Wickedest Man In the World.”
    Crowley was also a chess player, painter, astrologer, hedonist, bisexual, drug experimenter, and social critic.
