  2. Re: When did Celtic mythology become a pagan pathway in its own right?

    Although I can provide no evidence, reason suggests that the massive influence of thee Classics, and the frankly brutal depiction of British paganism, probably played a large role in its lack of...

    Re: To have, or to have not?

    I take Rick Stein's approach to foreign food and culinary tourism: would I eat it if it were served in my house? No? Then I wouldn't eat it abroad. That means dog. I wouldn't knowingly eat dog or...

    Re: The Afterlife,how do you envision it?

    If I can't exist remembering this life, I can't really see much point, this life would be for nothing.

    Re: Past paradise?

    In some ways, yes, in other ways no. Nearly every facet of our modernity which is seen as an improvement is a loss to someone, somewhere. The only reason iPhones are affordable is because they're put...

    Similarly, I found, and carry nearly everywhere, a stone. Virtually nobody else can see it (not the stone, of course people can see the stone I'm not mad), for some reason, but the way the flint is...

    Re: What makes an item sacred?

    The State is sacred to the Chinese government. Oppose it and die. No worship of or reverence for a deity there.

    Same went for Stalinist Russia, and North Korea.

  16. Re: Things we use as offerings and perhaps why we use them as a personal choice

    Yup, people are similar. Emotional damage may make them attach to people more easily out of desperation, or less easily out of lack of trust, but betrayal has a far greater impact on cats than, say,...

    Watched The Witch last night.

    Disappointing. The pro-Puritan angle they put on the witch was the least of the problems. Aesthetically beautiful, but weak plot and storyline.

    One pound a week actually is both sustainable and healthy. That's what I'm doing. Mostly it's my physical work and very few desserts after dinner!

    Something is sacred to someone if it is of the utmost importance to the individual, so sacredness (?) is trickle down, not up. If you hold an entity or person as holy, then by extension anything they...
