Challenge: Prove The Ice Bucket Challenge Is A Satanic Ritual

Unless you live at a remote camp up in the mountains, or sequestered away in a monastery, you have heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge, in which people are challenged to shoot videos of themselves having buckets of icy water poured over their heads, and to donate to support research for treatments for ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

In recent days, you may have also heard rumors that the Ice Bucket Challenge is a satanic ritual, a baptism in evil.

A writer at the World Truth TV web site claims, “a good friend mentioned that an ex-satanist friend said that this is the very same ritual he did when he was a satanist and was like a covenant contract with the devil.”

This is the classic form of fake evidence for urban legends: Un-named person A told me that un-named person B said…

In none of the materials I have ever read about the practice of Satanism have I ever come across any mention of buckets of icy water being dumped over anyone’s head. The cultural origin of this practice seems to actually come from the National Football League, which televised a series of incidents in which football players dumped huge buckets of icy water over the heads of their coaches, as they stood watching the game from the sidelines.

However, if there really is a Satanic practice of baptism people into worship of demons by dumping ice water over their heads, it shouldn’t take too much effort to find out.

Here’s OUR challenge: If you are a Satanist who has personally participated in any Satanic ritual involving icy water, get in contact and give us concrete evidence that this ritual took place. If you KNOW a Satanist who has participated in such a ritual, give us a name and an email or telephone number, so that we can get in touch with your Satanist friend and check the story.

    It may have something to do with hell freezing over . . .or, maybe not.

  2. Jack McCully says:

    Just as there is no god there is also no satan. So why worry about what these idiots say?

    1. J Clifford says:

      That’s like saying, “There isn’t any God, so why worry when the city commission of Winter Garden, Florida kicks an atheist out of a public government meeting for refusing to participate in a prayer ritual and religious pledge?” ( http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2014/08/29/florida-mayor-kicks-atheist-out-of-city-commission-meeting-after-he-doesnt-stand-for-the-invocation-or-pledge/ ) These things matter because they are political. Assertions of rampant Satanism are used to support regressive and theocratic policies.

      Dude , I’m sure you believe in demons or have a fear . ,that’s ..<< what the devil does.Brings fear and stress and depression. And g
      If you believe in the devil. Then you believe in god. Bc the devil is nothing with out god .

      1. J Clifford says:

        What? Alyza, that doesn’t make any sense. Why are you sure that I believe in demons? Have I given you any reason to believe that? Do you presume that people believe in dragons, too? There’s no evidence of any devils or demons or gods. There’s no evidence that the Ice Bucket Challenge is anything but an innocent marketing gimmick for a good cause.

  3. Jack McCully says:

    I agree.

    1. John Grever says:

      You are lost if you think God does not exists…..

      1. Jack McCully says:

        You are deluded if you think he does.

        1. John Grever says:

          You are worthless and deserve every cruel and untimely event that could ever happen to anyone with the narrow thinking that there is no God watching over you. If you believe there is no God, you are not worth the short time it takes to respond to your childish ways and most likely love for the Jihad.

          1. J Clifford says:

            John, jihad is perpetrated by people who believe in God, not by atheists. To wage a religious war, you have to be a religious believer.

            I’m curious, John, whether you think your declaration that atheists should suffer is a selling point for your religion. Are you attracted to a system of belief that justifies this kind of sadism? Do you think other people like that too?

          2. Jack McCully says:

            You appear to have the same mind set accredited to your so called god in the old testament and I thought Jihad was something that fanatical muslims indulged in, not peace loving atheists.

        2. Keona says:

          Jack, I’m not telling you what to or what not to believe but God moves through me and my life daily as I know, personally, that God exists in every living thing. Each of us are on our own journeys and we come to our own conclusions based upon subjective evidence.

          Maybe one day you’ll feel differently, maybe not, but I wish you peace, love and blessings. 🙂

          1. Jack McCully says:

            I don`t agree with your religious beliefs but I appreciate your friendly and peaceful reply to me.

      2. alyza says:

        Amen

    So far, we’ve had well over a thousand people viewing this article, and not one of them has offered any evidence that the ice bucket challenge is in fact a Satanic ritual.

    1. Keona says:

      I just found it funny that not too long before this “craze” appeared children were inspired to light themselves on fire.. then came the ice… No evidence though, just strange circumstances and monkey see monkey do.

      1. J Clifford says:

        Children were inspired to light themselves on fire?!? Not any children I know. How many children set themselves on fire “not too long before” the ice bucket challenge, Keona?

        What I see is a lot of “fire challenge” hype, but not many people who have actually done it.

        Attention for the ice bucket challenge really started taking off on about August 15, 2014, but it was gradually spreading before then.

        Articles about the fire challenge in the second week of August began popping up on local news web sites, most of them very thin on facts. The articles continued for a couple of weeks, but most never really identified how widespread the fire challenge was. The Detroit Free Press cited local authorities as advising parents across the city to search through their teenagers’ social media accounts in order to stop teenagers from setting themselves on fire, but only could find two instances across the entire country of teenagers actually setting themselves on fire. An article by MyFoxChicago cites two more cases. Wikipedia cites five more cases.

        That’s nine people.

        I found a 26 YouTube different videos of people doing the fire challenge in the first five pages for the search “fire challenge”, and about three times that many videos warning about the fire challenge. YouTube estimates that there are about 75,000 videos about the fire challenge, almost all of which are against the fire challenge. YouTube estimates 16,900,000 videos about the ice bucket challenge. There are an estimated 204,000 videos about something called the “donut challenge”, and an estimated 911,000 videos about a “pizza challenge”.

        If there is a causal link between the two challenges, it’s an extremely weak one.

    2. Denzyl Dcruz says:

      it may or may not be any satanic ritual.but if it was a satanic ritual then surely you know that no one will come up and prove it. They wouldn’t want it to stop…Would they ?!!!! and if someone did come up and say he did it or was a part of it …Would you believe it ???!!!! Why ask for proof when you already decided. samething about believing in God ….Don’t ask proof for what you already decided to believe.

      1. J Clifford says:

        Denzyl, I’m confused. Are you actually advocating for people deciding to believe things, and then ignoring the reality that contradicts with their beliefs?

        If lack of evidence for something is in fact evidence for that thing, how can you ever deny any claims made upon you? I could tell you that you owe me $1,000 because of a Satanic crime you committed, but then say that, of course, the crime victims won’t come forward, because they’ve been threatened by Satanists. By your standards of evidence, you would then need to give me the $1,000 – no questions asked.

        I choose to think differently. Tens of thousands of people have now viewed this article, most of them because they are specifically searching for information linking the Ice Bucket Challenge to Satanism. The fact that not a single one of these people has even one piece of evidence for such a link, when the Ice Bucket Challenge has been such a common occurrence, is a strong sign to me that there is no merit to the Ice Bucket Satanism urban legend.

  5. J son says:

    Hey I believe that it is not a ritual, but instead its a mockery of the baptism ritual. As a lot people dont know that not only Christians practice it, other major religions believe in the practice of washing sin/impurity away. The use ice water adds dedication to the challenge really who likes ice water buckets?its a mockery of John the baptist because, of the fact that people baptize willingly and with a known reason. These challenges in reality have the als reason,but most people do it to comply on social media. I can truly say that;if there is a satanist agenda then, the ice challenge is another way of having a massive amount of people commit these actions without asking questions.My two cents on this is that satanists are great at charades you know put a picture up and run another one in the back(subconsciously)or in your face type deal. The subconscious mind is what satanists aim to appeal, in the end you dont have to be satanist to participate on things you dont know, “christians” celebrate the pagan practice of christmas and easter(bunny) rituals and arent admitted pagans.

    1. J Clifford says:

      Do you have any actual evidence for any of this, or are these just suspicions?

      1. Angel says:

        Read The bible and go to church you will find evidence that there is a God. The bible talks about the beginning of the end people will sufer people will worship statues and they will be lost when the beginning of the end begins all the worthy people will disappear and when that happen you will wonder why and it’s because God exist He will rescue thoes who believe in God, The Holy Spirit and Jesus if you deny Jesus in front of man Jesus will also deny you to God, God is waiting for you to reilaze that with out him there wouldn’t be a world it NOT like the Big Bang theory that’s a lie people were never monkeys if that was true how come we don’t look like one and or how come the monkeys from today haven’t become us? God exist an if you want to believe that He doesn’t go ahead but you will regret it, open your heart to him he loves you he died for OUR sins look around you this world didn’t create by it’s self God Who is beautiful and love has created this world for us. You may not believe in God but you do not have the right to bring others down with you. GOD BLESS AND I WILL PRAY FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT GOD DOES EXIST! Bye.

    2. Jack McCully says:

      He pagans did not celebrate Christmas. the Christians used the pagan feast as a celebration of Christmas because it happened at the right time of the year. How could the pagans have celebrated the birth of someone who had not yet been born?

  6. John Grever says:

    Go in peace Jack. and may God forgive you. And by the way, God gives that ability to be a peaceful LOVING a^*#%&)s.

  7. Agree with Json says:

    “The subconscious mind is what satanists aim to appeal”.
    One of the most insightful statements I have ever heard. The electronic media can deliver so much info/messages to the subconscious, we should be careful with what we watch. Even the most innocuous tv program or video game can carry commands to make you do destructive things. Take care of you mind. God Bless.

    1. J Clifford says:

      So, you could be watching the morning news, and be getting a subconscious message to believe the literal truth of 2,000 year-old mythologies, for example. Is that what you mean, “Agree with Json”?

  9. L says:

    In this world, wherever there is light – there are also shadows. As long as the concept of winners exists, there must also be losers. The selfish desire of wanting to maintain peace causes wars, and hatred is born to protect love.

  10. L says:

    People live their lives bound by what they accept as correct and true. That’s how they define Reality. But what does it mean to be “correct” or “true”? Merely vague concepts… Their Reality may all be a mirage. Can we consider them to simply be living in their own world, shaped by their beliefs?

  11. TellerofTruth says:

    I don’t know if the water bucket challenge is a satanic ritual but I think it is definitely a mockery of baptism and and a mass expression of the love of self. These celebs are doing it to do a good deed in public which God criticises in the Bible. These stars are so rich they could give money to ALS without having to do an ice bucket challenge and no one would have to know. They are simply doing it for themselves and their deep need to be admired revered and worshipped as do gooders. God makes it clear that those who do good deeds in public with a haughty mind to get publicity or admiration from others have already been judged and will be repaid accordingly. At the end of the day there is no need to worry about these loser fame hungry celebs. If they are worshipping Satan and performing his rituals via this challenge then God has recorded it in his Book and they shall pay the penalty. I myself will not be doing any challenges because I have a mind of my own and refuse to follow any fads without considering the nature and purpose of it, in accordance with my beliefs as a Christian. If you are not a Christian you can do as you wish according to your own beliefs.

    affusion: The method of Baptism..whereby water is poured over the head of the candidate. The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church.

    Water in the Cultic Worship of Isis and Sarapis

    “…a ritual of pouring or sprinkling water over the heads of those to be purified was widespread in Isis-Sarapis worship.” pg.146

    The Isis-book:(Metamorphoses, Book XI) Book 11 by Apuleius
    CH.23 pg 288

    “purissime circumrorans abluit : The ancient Egyptian rite, as applied to the Pharaoh or to a private persons, involved pouring water from a vessel over the head of the person who was being purified.”

    An Examination of the Isis Cult with Preliminary Exploration Into New Testament Studies pg 57

    “In the account of Metamorphoses, the devotee Lucius takes a customary bath upon his initiation into the Isis cult, witnessed by the devotees of Isis. This is then followed with “purificatory sprinkling”…this initiation rite to be a kind of baptism into the Isis cult.”

    1. J Clifford says:

      Okay, so there’s nothing about ice water in any of this… or anything about Satan. Satan is a particular mythological character which comes out of the Arabian Peninsula and Mesopotamia, not Egypt, where Isis came from.

      Try again.

      1. GL says:

        The act of pouring water on your head is a form of a ritual cleansing. Some do use cold water for dousing rituals.

        Worship practices of Isis and other Egyptian gods were absorbed into the New Age, Luciferian and Satanic modern religions. Aliester Crowley’s The Book of the law had Egyptian gods as its trinity. The Egyptian goddess Isis is prominent in Order of the Golden Dawn as well as some Wiccan groups.

        Also modern Ceremonial/ritual magik in the left hand Satanic path have roots in Egyptian mysticism in which Isis is the goddess of magik.

  13. Horatio says:

    What, GL?!? Are you saying seriously that worship of Isis, New Age and Satanism are all the same?!?

    Why not throw in My Little Pony and Breaking Bad?

    You think Wicca is Satanism, too?

    That’s kind of like saying that Christianity is a form of Islam.

    “Some use cold water”. Some who? Where is your proof of these some?

    In some baptisms, the water is cold. Does that mean that the Ice Bucket Challenge is really a baptism?

    Sometimes, when I water my garden, the water is cold. Does that mean that the Ice Bucket Challenge is a kind of gardening?

    When I drink dinner, I have a glass of ice water sometimes. Does that mean that the Ice Bucket Challenge is a way of having dinner?

    Clean your mind, GL.

    1. GL says:

      IBC is a pagan ritual and i told you why i think so. The cleansing of the body by pouring over your head i stated earlier. As well as the involvement of a pharmaceutical company called Isis.

      No Im not saying that those beliefs are the same. They have an element that is the same and that came from an older source. Pagan and Christianity have the same ritual cleansing but doesn’t make the two belief systems the same. A similar element in a vastly different structure. The IBC ritual is based on rituals done by Egyptian and other belief systems before.

      Misogi is an example of cold water cleansing.

      1. J Clifford says:

        whoah, GL. Pagan and Satanic are not the same thing. Misogi is Shinto, not Satanist. This is all way, way off track.

        1. Denzyl Dcruz says:

          And please go ahead take a ice tub challenge why just a little I’ve bucket challenge. if you are a sensible person reading this life has more profitable challenges we can engage.

          1. Horatio says:

            So, Denzyl, you don’t think fundraising for ALS is worthwhile? Well, that’s kind of cold of you.

    2. Denzyl Dcruz says:

      You have made up your mind. Don’t worry no one can convince you or change your mind. die thinking you are the wisest person. Be happy.

      1. Horatio says:

        In other words, Denzyl and his comrades in the conspiracy camp can’t prove their weird assertions about the Ice Bucket Challenge and Satanism.

  14. John says:

    Your request is pointless. Number one, any person truly involved in occult practices or a satanic organization would never tell the truth about wether or not the sudden submersion on ice water is connected with any rites and/or rituals connected with any Luciferian, satanic, and any other occult related rituals. This is for two reasons. They aren’t going to tell the uninitiated about anything having to do with occult practice. Secondly, and most importantly, why would any true blooded Satanist/ Luciferian/ freemason/etc….. Want to help the cause of the Christians (their hated enemies)? They wouldn’t!!! They love making Christians look “crazy” or “irrational”.
