Satanic thinking dates back to the years before the birth of Christ (pbuh), when the pressure of Christianity on the people and their strictures on the one hand and the Judeo-Christian teachings, Greek philosophy and the decline of spirituality on the other, caused growth. This movement secretly became anti-religious, which over time and with the change of civilizations, only its form and title have changed. To understand the current situation, it is necessary to collect the movements of the currents of this sect and what is being presented by the critical currents, and to identify its strengths and weaknesses in order to provide a suitable solution to deal with this current. In this research, by presenting the views, practices, principles and beliefs of Satanism, its pathology and strategies for overcoming it in cyberspace, as well as the process of Satanism and its contexts in the West and Iran have been discussed. It should also be noted that one of the most important areas of activity of demon worshipers is music, which they use to promote and propagate; Another point is that most of the victims of this sect are not properly educated and have finally reached emptiness.
