How can Helen Keller be a Satanist?

This Signs of Satan thing I found on just now amuses the hell out of me.

If you think Miss Keller’s hand sign is just a coincidence, then you are truly gullible. If you were deaf, and wanted to develop a hand sign to tell someone that you love them, what would it be? A hand over the heart would be reasonable. There is no way that any reasonable person would develop the hand sign that Keller invented, paralleling an existing hand salute to Satan. The above photo is one of Ozzy Osbourne’s Rock-n-Roll album covers. It is abundantly clear to see that Keller’s hand sign praises the Devil.

Oh, I have to admit, the sheer volume of fake research into this is totally astounding. The creators of this site found a lot of pictures of people waving the “I love you” hand sign around and mixed in a lot of pictures of people doing the horn salute thing that sports fans, metal-heads and some satanists have co-opted.

I don’t think Helen Keller invented the love sign. I don’t think the creators of this site know anything about her. I don’t think the creators know much about sign language either.

It’s interesting how the same gesture can mean different things to different people. In Spain, Portugal and Italy, for example, the “Hook’em Horns” sign is a sexual insult aimed at men thought to be adulterers. Plus, the love sign is also a curse of some sort in Italy, according to wiki.

There’s never just one meaning for anything. Hell, even the Nazi swastika started off better. It used to be a symbol for good luck. Good luck using it for that now.

    Since Keller was a follower of Blavatsky (satanist), then that would make her a satanist, too… as for the hand sign, it would be interesting to know if that sign was used by the satanists of the time. (( I always thought the satanist sign had the thumb tucked in, and her sign the thumb sticks out )) As for the swastika, i believe you have confused the nazi one for the good luck ward painted on barns in the days gone by… the difference is the direction of the ends of the cross.

    Helena Blatavasky was a Theosophist, not a satanist. The Vatican and company wanted to claim her book “The Secret Doctrine” is what got the whole satanism ball rolling but even if it did, that doesn’t mean Blatavasky intended for it to be interpreted that way. People just treated her book like people treat the bible and took what they wanted out of it.

    If Helen Keller got into mysticism and the new age movement of her age, she wasn’t alone in the world doing that. It’s always been of interest to people at one level or another, which is why many of those daft ideas keep cropping up in other forms. That woo ain’t true, but they’ll be devout and believe it anyway.

    Wikipedia can set you straight about the swastika. ( It looks like the Nazis just spun the thing a bit. It’s shaped exactly the same as the Hindu decorative one. It’s interesting reading.

    Wikipedia is an Illuminati controlled disinformation/propaganda outlet so I wouldn’t put much store in anything they purport to be the “truth”. You won’t find any of these quotes on WickedPedia but you can ascertain the truth straight from the horse’s mouth (so to speak): “One of the most hidden secrets involves the so-called fall of Angels. Satan and his rebellious host will thus prove to have become the direct Saviours and Creators of divine man. Thus Satan, once he ceases to be viewed in the superstitious spirit of the church, grows into the grandiose image. It is Satan\ who is the God of our planet and the only God. Satan (or Lucifer) represents the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, this ever-living symbol of self-sacrifice for the intellectual independence of humanity. “—-Sister H.P. Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine Pages 215, 216, 220, 245, 255, 533 Alice Bailey was the leader of the Theosophical Society which was founded in 1875 by Helena Blavatsky. Theosophy is a branch of Freemasonry. According to Constance Cumbey, Theosophy spawned the occult societies that in turn created Adolf Hitler and the Nazi ideology. (“The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow: The New Age Movement and the Coming Age of Barbarism” 1983) Don’t kid yourself. Blavatsky was a Satanist and so was Helen Keller. Otherwise, you never wouldn’t heard of them. You don’t become famous in this world by following the Truth (Jesus Christ)

    Never WOULD’VE heard of them. I hate these stupid “facebook” type comment sections that cut you off when your trying to type! I’ve noticed that every website that contains the little “t” and “f” symbols is problematic in some way. (Go figure)

    Which reminds me, Saskatoon Freethinkers has invited James Brayshaw to talk to us at some point. I think it’s the November meeting but I might be mistaken. He’s written several books about Satan as a concept. I enjoyed skimming through the first long tome but I haven’t read the rest of his work yet.
