It is true that if you follow the link to the Ring of Truth home page
( you will find a link allegedly owned by 'satan
himself'. However a closer examination will reveal this is just an example
of how to set up a page to join the Ring of Truth and the satan link is just
a placeholder. I believe it was meant to be tongue-in-cheek.

For better or worse Virus does share some memes with Satanism, e.g.
God and Satan are myths, there are good reasons to believe that there
is no afterlife, humans are animals, etc. I think all this means is that
the CoV doesn't have a monopoly on useful memes.
