  • What is your take on this quote and the future or religion?

    Question by The Reaper: What is your take on this quote and the future or religion?
    “The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend a personal God and avoid dogmas and theology. Covering both natural and spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual and a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism.”

    -Einstein

  • I keep hearing about Wicca/Wiccans. Is that considered a religion? What do Wiccans believe and practice?

    Question by kacey: I keep hearing about Wicca/Wiccans. Is that considered a religion? What do Wiccans believe and practice?
    Like, is the pentagram part of Wicca? I’ve always wondered what that stood for. I’ve been shopping for rocks and crystals because I want to collect them, and I see a lot that are categorized as “Wiccan.” How is that a part of the practice? Also, is “Wicca” the same as “paganism”? All these different names are confusing!

    Please, I’d like to hear from some people who follow Wicca or can speak objectively about it. I understand that there’s probably people who don’t agree with it, but only hearing from people who hate the whole thing won’t help! Thanks a lot!
