The symbol of Baphomet was used by the Knights Templar to represent Satan. The Baphomet represents the powers of darkness combined with the generative fertility of the goat. In its "pure" forn the pentagram is shown encompassing the figure of a man in the five points of the star-three points up,two pointing down-symbolizing mans spiritual nature. In satanism the pentagram is also used, but since satanism represents the carnal instincts of man, or the opposite of the spiritual nature, the pentegram is inverted to perfectly accommodate the head of the goat-its horns,representing duality, thrust upwards in defiance; the other three points enverted, or the trinity denied. The Hebraic figures around the outer cicle of the symbol which stem from the magical teachings of the Kabala, spell out "Leviathan," the serpent of the watery abyss, and identified with satan. These figures correspond to the five points of the inverted star.
