    Are there any followers of pagan-based beliefs here, like Wicca or modern druidism? I was curious, because you don't really see much discussion of that sort of thing here.

    If you aren't one yourself, what are your thoughts on them?

    I'm not one myself, but I know a few.
    As far as what I believe, I think that they have as much validity to their beliefs as other religions/beliefs systems do.

    My beliefs somewhat go with it.

    form of nature worship, check
    do i believe nature is the only TRUE power? check


    I dont follow rituals though, I just ponder and think and ponder some more, and came up with... Humanity HAS to be wiped out, along with EVERYTHING we ourselves have constructed, for the world to return to balance.

    i think they'r dumb for trying to re-create ancient rituals that are even stupider than mainstream religions, just become an atheist already is my advice to them

    As I see it, pagans are borderline satanists and should be looked down upon by all civilized people.

    Because we know all Christians are ethical and law abiding. And that's a fact, the bible truth.

    I mean if one is law-abiding and ethical (but not Christian) does that make him civilized?

    Christianity is not a prequisite to being civilized. Stop being ignorant and closed minded.

    Going sliiighty off-topic, wouldn't it be hilarious if Minigunner was born in, say, Iran? I'm sure he'd still be just as convinced he was right, even though he'd basically do a 180 on his current world-view, and denounce Christians as following the wrong faith.

    Depends. If it was a Jew, I would consider them civilized. However if it was a Sikh or something of the sort I'd have to say no.

    I think Marl and the extremist Muslims he denounces so often have more in common with each other than with most rational people.
    His posts are so adorable, it makes me want to pet his little head.

    I usually label myself as Pagan. I haven't settled on a particular belief system though.

    well i am going to elaborate a bit now on my earlier post since someone negged me for it without leaving a name. basically neo-paganism is for people who think they're too cool for traditional religion, who believe they are creative and open minded and embracing "real spirituality" but who are too stupid to realize atheism is superior. in other words, hippy type people. now, i dont necessarily hate them i am just saying they are embracing things that make EVEN LESS sense than traditional religion. i know it makes them feel more liberated or whatever but it seriously is ridiculous.

    I'd say that many pagan religions have at least one thing that makes them more sensible than traditional religions, which is that they usually avoid omnipotence and omniscience. I don't ascribe to pagan beliefs because I think I am too cool for traditional religion. I do because after doing some religious searching I found that these are the beliefs that make the most sense to me.

    can you exlpain why they make senes to you though? because to me they dont make any sense, in fact i'm not even quite sure what the "beliefs" even are, all i know is the weird nature-based rituals, wearing black or being naked, etc. i've heard of the weird "and do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law" which is a tautology and meaningless but thats the only neo pagan "belief" i've actually come across
