Can someone give me a basic outline of the life and works of Aleister Crowley?

was he a bad person?
i just saw on tv on that show ‘Scariest Places on Earth’ that the show today is about Aleister Crowley, like where he used to live.

  1. “Bad”?
    I don’t know. What do you think of creating a religion that uses women as altars for sex acts using yams?
    He wrote about it in his book, “the Satanic Bible”.
    I think he was just a sadistic, angry ex-Catholic who took advantage of California’s expansive freedom in ordaining ministers. Did you know that you can pick any religion you want, or create your own, and become a recognized, licensed minister in CA? When I was in the navy, 3 sailors found out and signed up. One created a religion worshiping himself, another created a religion just so he could make up his own religious holidays to get days off from work.

  2. Aleister Crowley, born Edward Alexander Crowley (pronounced /ˈkroÊŠli/), (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.

  3. He was a british occultist.
    edit: @ Liberal Asskicker…you are confusing him with the jew named anton lavey

  4. He started out as a follower of the Golden Dawn, an occult group that followed ideas from Egyptian religions. He became evil. I have a friend who says that Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter movies was modeled after Crowley. And if you look at a picture of Crowley and Voldemort, it does seem that the movie makers used Crowley as a model. Very, very evil dangerous man.
