A vision of Kali inspired not by acid means but by acidic conglomeration of dis-ambiguous archetypal symbolic phalanx inorder to test the masonry of time...

Kali (Sanskrit: काली, Bengali: কালী, both Kālī), also known as Kalika (Bengali: কালিকা, Kālikā), is the Hindu goddess associated with eternal energy. The name Kali comes from Kāla which means black, time, death, lord of death, Shiva. Kali means "the black one". Since Shiva is called Kāla - the eternal time, Kālī, his consort, also means "the Time" or "Death" (as in time has come). Hence, Kali is considered the goddess of time and change. Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilation still has some influence. More complex Tantric beliefs sometimes extend her role so far as to be the "ultimate reality" or Brahman. She is also revered as Bhavatarini (literally "redeemer of the universe"). Comparatively recent devotional movements largely conceive Kali as a benevolent mother goddess.

Kali is represented as the consort of Lord Shiva, on whose body she is often seen standing. She is associated with many other Hindu goddesses like Durga, Bhadrakali, Sati, Rudrani, Parvati and Chamunda. She is the foremost among the Dasa Mahavidyas, ten fierce Tantric goddesses.

Little does many know that Kali is also Astarte, Venus, Lucifer, Isthar, Isis, Selene, Luna, she is also the lost eve, and the lost feminine...

in this work kali has as a neclace thriteen heads, the center piece of whic is a man crowned with thorns, a psuedochrist and psuedo apostles, the number 13, that so called unholy number, is derived from old history :
The Knights Templar were a monastic military order founded in Jerusalem in 1118 C.E., whose mission was to protect Christian pilgrims during the Crusades. Over the next two centuries, the Knights Templar became extraordinarily powerful and wealthy. Threatened by that power and eager to acquire their wealth, King Philip by order of the Pope, secretly ordered the mass arrest of all the Knights Templar in France on Friday, October 13, 1307 - Friday the 13th

Where are your sources to back this up? I'm afraid your simply being western/christian centric with your dose of conspiracy theories to go along with it. Kali has no connection with other gods nor does her symbolism conclude 'satanic symbolism', Christianity holds no monopoly to other religions.
