Before I impose my interrogative, I just want to mention that I am not well versed in Satanism as it is a subject I haven't really studied and that I might be incorrect several times in my post, in which case I wouldn't mind people correcting me but please remember that I want to make this an intellegent discussion, not a brawl of theistic fundamentals and I do not mean to attack Satanism in any way despite my personal beliefs. I also know there are various types of Satanism, so if i mix stuff up I don't mean to offend. Ok, first off I myself am Christian, however I am not against Satanism because as part of my own philosophy, I don't find Lucifer to be the sole antagonist of God, given that satan means "enemy" in general which I enterpret as anything that is an enemy of God and Man, including mankind itself. I would go as far as saying that mankind is a form of satan in its own way. Now disregarding my personal beliefs, the question I wanted to ask is rather simple: why is it called Satanism? It seems like a weird name because, given that satan means enemy, wouldn't the name imply you worship an enemy? Why not just include Satanism in Luciferianism? Hopefully someone will answer the question(s) and we'll be able to discuss this peacefully.
