  • How did “country dweller” (“pagan”) come to mean “non-christian”?

    Question by Crazy Pirate (((zilla))): How did “country dweller” (“pagan”) come to mean “non-christian”?
    Is it just that christianity was the new, hip, city-slicker religion? or something more insidious?

    When you indoctrinate an area, you start with the population centers. The country dwellers are a lower priority, and thus get indoctrinated last.

  • How would I come out of the pagan “broom closet” to my friends and family?

    Question by drewsilla01: How would I come out of the pagan “broom closet” to my friends and family?
    I’d really like to know the best way to do this without everyone, including those in my community, looking down on me. There are some in my family that know already, like my sister-in-law, but coming out to my parents, in-laws and the like just scares me. I also live in a very small southern town, and I’d like to be left alone. I have not came out yet mainly b/c my son starts school here this year, and I don’t want him to be bothered or made fun of because of the way I believe. My husband is fine with it, too, by the way.

    I’d like to know what you all think. Christians, you can answer if it’s helpful to me. Please don’t preach, b/c you can’t change my mind about what I believe. Pagans, Wiccans or anyone who has been in a similar situation, I’d love to hear how you handled it and what happened, etc.

    Thank you in advance!!!!
    For paul_t, I used the word “pagan” as a general term. I’m actually Wiccan, if that makes a difference.

    Don’t push it on them–they may not want to know. Wear a pagan symbol, but not a pentacle (Christians are too easily confused by that one), and if they ask about it, go ahead and tell them a little. Don’t go on about it unless they ask some more.

    You will still face some prejudice, but people won’t be as upset.

  • What is buddhism, and where did it come from?

    Question by Bonkers B: What is buddhism, and where did it come from?
    In my world studies class, were learning about buddhism, and a bucket load of other religions.

    Can any one break down “buddhism” in a 4 sentence summary?

    It’s an offshoot of Hinduism. Created by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha in India. It believes all life is sacred and individuals contain both good and bad and must constantly have an inner struggle towards enlightenment until they attain Nirvana in this or a next life.

    Answer by BlueFoots
    It could have come from the idea of Adam and Eve, the two parts that make a whole. In Hebrew it is called a “bashert” or intended.

  • If ghosts “exist”, how come we don’t see them more often?

    Question by Bruno: If ghosts “exist”, how come we don’t see them more often?
    Because they don’t exist, period! If they “do” we would be “seeing” more of them everyday. Imagine meeting on the streets the “ghosts” of Adolf Hitler, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, John Lennon and John F. or Robert F. Kennedy. But that is not happening. I see all “ghosts believers” have their brains full of flies. They suffer from mental, occular and other delusions. A psychiatrist, not a phony balony “spiritualist”, is what they need. Get real! GROW UP! HA HA!
    H.G. Wells wrote a short novel, “The Invisible Man”, and nobody could not “see him”. Why? The story was FICTIONAL! Bad logic!

  • Why are most quasispiritualists that believe in the “spirit of America” afraid to come out?

    Question by Dear Dogma: Why are most quasispiritualists that believe in the “spirit of America” afraid to come out?
    They believe in a spirit of justice…a spirit of truth.
    If they aren’t “spiritualists” aren’t they “quasispiritualists”?

    thumbs up to anyone that uses “Kitteh’s” word of the the day today 😉
