your bit about Buddhism is a little off as well
Ok, I'm going to clarify. When i say Satanism, I mean Theitic Satanism rather than Atheist Satanism. Atheist Satanism is what you describe, where the figure of Satan is seen as a symbol for human nature, and represents governing powers oppressing a dissident. Theistic Satanism is the kind where the followers actually worship Satan, the king of demons. This is what most of us think when we imagine satanism, a cult of followers of an evil being, performing rituals etc.
On to Buddhism - Yes, I did fail to mention Nirvana, but that is irrelevant. I'm referring to irreversable punishments in this post, rather than a many-life goal. I will now better explain what I mean:
This is an analysis of the consequences of following or not following certain religions, to determine one theoretical path that will not lead to Hell in any major religion.
In the three religions of Jewish origin (Christianity, Islam, Judaism), they require you to follow their religion and nothing else to get into Heaven, else you are sent to Hell, domain of Satan. Basically, this is almost exclusively based on whether or not you are faithful of God (from reading the entire Bible, not the Koran or Miqra). This means that if you worship Satan and he approves, when you enter Hell you will no doubt end up not being tortured but rather associating with Satan, and the other demons and Theistic Satanists. This means that if any of these religions are the truth, then you aren't destined to Hell to suffer.
In Hinduism and Buddhism, what happens in your next life is entirely based on the morality of your actions in this life. Basically, if you're a Theistic Satanist but don't do anything cruel to others, your next life will be better.
If there is no god, then none of this matters.
Basically, if you're a Theistic Satanist and get in Satan's good books, there is ~0% chance of hell, since your bases are covered in every religion.
