Re: LaVeyan Satanism and Carvaka.
I was just about to bring this point up. The majority of Christians or peoples of a Christian type background would probably consider Hindu deities in an impassive manner. To them, most likely the Devas don't exist as individual deities who all have Their parts to play in the universe, but of course this comes from branding Hinduism as polytheistic, rather than panentheistic. As for the fundamentals who claim our Gods are demons, who gives a hoot anymore? Every other religious and non-religious peoples in the world already are aware of that "my way or the highway" attitude they exude to all other spiritualities.
Also, Sanjaya, I agree with many of the points on your last post.
