    Sticky: Re: The Rant Thread (v 1.2)

    I had a co-worker suggest the other day that there was a difference of opinion over mask wearing, and that you could “keep reinfecting yourself” if you wear a mask.

    We live in a really bizarre...

    Re: Historical cleansing

    As perspectives of history change, it is natural that our emphasis will change. That includes statues. In time, I think we may find that even once lionized figures like Thomas Jefferson will decline...

    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v2)

    I just discovered there’s a Nart Sagas webcomic, and I’m thrilled to be honest.

    For those unfamiliar, the Nart Sagas are a corpus of epics from the...

    Re: Slavic Pagan Resources

    This link is a really good free source. In particular, the ballads from Serbia in the link are partially new to me. I would highly recommend Ralston. His Songs of the Russian People is a really...

    Re: Hello from Europe.

    Hello Morganite. Glad to see people joining.
    It seems like this is one of maybe two pagan forums from way back in my earlier years that are still active. I know what it’s like to be the only pagan...

    Right now it’s “The Source” by James Michener. An interesting historical fiction novel using a fictional 20th century archaeological dig in Israel as a framing device.The archaeologists find various...

    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v2)

    I would kind of like to revisit this statement about the USA being racist. It seems like this was taken personally, and that’s really not the point that I got from this statement.

    I don’t want to...

    It is a terrible idea to take out your rage on local businesses. Focusing on these instances without having a sense of their proportion (within the broader outcry against police violence) is...

    Sticky: Re: US Election 2020 Coverage Thread

    If by “they” you mean the voters who turned out, then yes I agree. But I dislike the narrative that “they” the Democratic Party chose him for us, because honestly this primary was wide open. If...

    Slavic Pagan Resources

    Hello all,

    I noticed Lunaxsilvermoon posted a thread requesting resources on Slavic paganism about a year ago. Another individual did back in 2013. Neither of them got very many responses. My own...

    Re: Can the soul die?

    In my tradition the feeding of ancestors is certainly crucial. In the carpathians, they believed that ceasing to feed the spirits on the island of Rachman would eventually result in the end of the...
  14. Re: Americans, Paganism and Cultural Appropriation

    Borrowing heavily from Native American traditions seems like something that would give me serious imposter syndrome. Partially because many Native American tribes still exist. So to claim to be a...

    Re: Pagan Mentorship?? So Isolated

    A lot of us are isolated, but don't think that will end just because you find other pagans. The truth is that even when we get together, it can still be very challenging to find a true mentor or...

    Re: Real Dragon Deities

    This actually reminds me a bit of a discussion I had with someone about Baba Yaga recently. Not to derail the line of discussion. In fairy tales, Baba Yaga is often portrayed as the mother of dragons...

    Re: Where to begin?

    I recommend a little study in the history of religion. You'll find that concepts like monism have their origins in many places separate from Abrahamic religion, such as Kemeticism, Orphism, or...

    Almost any religion will claim a "higher" knowledge than other schools of thought, but Christianity is particularly clear that followers have a duty to save others. Regarding Islam, I don't have much...

    Re: Your pagan DNA roots

    I think you can inherit a spiritual legacy. Not so much that DNA can transmit memory. We are talking about a physical, concrete molecule here. Not some ethereal energy.

    Re: Controversy over Blood Sacrifice

    In the context of a ritual feast, I think it's fine. Many "animal sacrifice" traditions are just that; an animal is killed, and all or most of it is eaten. Others may waste a certain amount of meat,...

    Re: Pagan Expansionism!

    I would prefer disorganized expansion, if that makes any sense. I can see organized religions emerging from neo-paganism, but they will only be as small islands in a sea of eclecticism.

  24. Re: Why did paganism return and when did it return as a modern religion?

    There have been a number of periods in western history that have caused people to look back on pre-Christian traditions. Perhaps the earliest is during the Renaissance, when people began to crave a...

    Re: Sveiki (hello)

    Welcome! I guessed that you were a Baltic pagan as soon as I saw your username. As a Slavic pagan, I find the Baltic traditions very interesting.
