    Sticky: Re: Donald Trump Is A Jerk

    I don't mean to be a pedant but the USSR's worst moment was when it was disbanded and a limited goverment was forced on it's former republics. That caused mass starvations, the rise of the mafya, and...

    Re: Do Animals Hate?

    Animals can hate and love, but neither of those are calculated. A pet may hate or love baths, a wolf may hate or love certain kinds of meat, and an eagle may seem to have particular disdain for...

    Re: Immortal

    Funny thing is that science-wise your yes/no order is inverted (for one, time is an abstraction, for another, immortality merely requires avoiding biological death which is far easier to achieve in...

    Vapid humor is no reason to be upset. Unless you are named Osama Bin Laden, I suppose.

    Re: But is it meat?

    It will not longer matter whatever you care about meat production or not because the ethics wil no longer be questionable in the first place (unless you are an extreme eco-terrorist who only eats...

  8. Re: The quest for finding a place outside for rituals

    I see. Well I can only say that it was very rude of them to go out of their way through your circle. There is a difference between being curious or suspicious and being a jerk.

    Re: Internet Trolls

    I pity that kind of people. I mean it is clear that they have been playing too many videogames and wished some attention. Desperately.

    For my part I always found trolling to be a waste of time....
  10. Re: The quest for finding a place outside for rituals

    Out of curiosity, may I ask where exactly was your circle placed?

    As for a private place with green, I can only suggest renting a private house in a rural area.

    Re: Organ Donation and Paganism

    To be honest I would rather we worked on making organ donation obselete. Rather than vat-grown meat I would prefer vat-grown organs. Think about the benefits: Minimium rejection risks, increased...
  12. Re: On the Cultus Deorum for our times (my growing fascination with it)

    I understand how you must have felt. A lot of Neo-Paganism (even the non-New Age varieties) places too much emphasis on the land, on the green, on nature. While that is fine by me the world is not...

    Well said, anunitu. Well said.
  14. Re: migrants:What to do...Europe needs to decide.

    Because it really is nothing to take seriously. Specially after Stalin, the detenté that took place focused on a reduction of nuclear armaments* and avoiding nuclear war.

    The U.S.A. was never in...

    Re: Two Patron Gods?

    It is definitely possible. It even has a name: Polytheism.

    ...Bad joke, I know. But really it should not be a problem provided you honor and respect both of them.

    Re: First head transplant

    I realize this is creepy beyond words, but the patient wants a chance at life and they already have a donor body. He has nothing to lose: If it works science will have made an interesting step...
  17. Re: As a Pagan...what significance does evolution hold for you?

    I echo others' sentiment. While fascinating, it does not hold special significance to me despite in a sense holding a similiar view to fire as you do, Thalassa.

    Re: Tailsman? Amulet? Protection?

    While we are at it, Zoroastrianism works different from Abrahamic faiths in regards to the origin of Ahura Mazda and Ahriman. Ahura Mazda and Ahriman/Angra Mainyu actually have the same origins, both...

    Re: Feral cats. Neuter or kill?

    You misunderstand what caused the inflation. Germany after WWI used most of that currency to trade it for foreign credit while at the same time enganging in austerity. The private sector was attacked...

    No, Gleb, it does not. The US is a currency issuer, not a currency receiver. This means that taxes are for enforcement and regulation ("I want you to use this currency" / "We want to penalize this...

    Re: Why do you call youself Pagan?

    I think that, ironically, the term "Christian" was invended by Greco-Roman polytheists to denote a group of people who held to certain monotheistic beliefs while "Pagan" was used by later state-faith...
