Baphomet is a “pagan god” that represents the unity of everything. Baphomet is not a demon, or evil nor anything of the sort. The only evil is the hating of others who do not believe what you believe.
Baphomet is a symbolic representation of Harmony in Existence. Baphomet is a compilation of secret symbols intertwined into one unique and wonderful representation of Peace, love and Harmony.
Is Baphomet Satanic?
No, Baphomet is not satanic. The inverted pentagram with the Baphomet's head is a symbol of the Church of Satan - which surprisingly does NOT worship Satan - at all, but instead worships ego - one's self.
Is Baphomet a symbol of the Freemasons or Illuminati?
No, the association of Baphomet with Freemasons is most likely an attempt to make these groups look evil and sinister, because of the misrepresentation of Baphomet by some groups.
Baphomet has received a ton of attention these last few years. From the occultists to the mainstream music industry to even the so-called "Illuminati New World Government".
Definitely, the most recognized Baphomet image comes to us from a now popular 1855 book called “Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie”, written by a French Occultists named Eliphas Levi.
You may recognize the introduction of his book: (From the 1910 English Translation by Arthur Edward Waite.)
“Behind the veil of all the hieratic and mystical allegories of ancient doctrines, behind the darkness and strange ordeals of all initiations, under the seal of all sacred writings, in the ruins of Nineveh or Thebes, on the crumbling stones of old temples and on the blackened visage of the Assyrian or Egyptian sphinx, in the monstrous or marvelous paintings which interpret to the faithful of India the inspired pages of the Vedas, in the cryptic emblems of our old books on alchemy, in the ceremonies practised at reception by all secret societies, there are found indications of a doctrine which is everywhere the same and everywhere carefully concealed.” (1)
(Notice that last line: “a doctrine which is everywhere the same and everywhere carefully concealed.” )
