Hey all you pagans...

Postby Matt Trepal on Sat Nov 03, 2001 5:03 am

...I've got a question for you.<P>Why?<P>Or, rather, what led you adopt that particular set (or type) of beliefs?<P>Before I go any further, I want to say that I hope none of this comes off as being smarmy and/or mocking, because I don't mean to be. I'm not a Bible-thumper, hoping to dissuade you from a quick trip to Hell, nor am I casting about for a new religion, I'm just genuinely curious.<P>I suspect that most people who profess to be pagans were not raised as such, but rather they have decided that the faith in which they were raised does not satisfy them (for whatever reason). And in what little I know of modern paganism, it's got more of an animist (for lack of a better term) bent; I haven't <I>ever</I> heard of pagans deciding to raise temples to Zeus or Apollo. So, apparently, it's not a Classical form <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif">.<P>So, I'm wondering why you chose what you chose rather than any other "mainstream" religion. Or, if you're thinking about the switch, why?<P>

Thanks for answering, Pooka! You've answered some questions I've had about paganism (and, frankly, religion in general).
