    Thumbs up Celtic paganism - pie-throwing contest

    Edit:

    I removed my opening post, since this is no longer the thread I started.
    Don't you people have any form of shame in you? Honestly.

    Thumbs up Issues surrounding paganism

    Here's a rendition of one of the oldest Celtic hymns, with the theme of a deep personal bond with God.

    I renamed the thread to Celtic Paganism, since christianity is everything I am not looking for
    Christianity has good morals for the most part, but I meant the Old Gods and Goddesses.

    There are aspects of paganism that I find utterly fascinating...

    I love that the same stories appear over and over in different cultures and slightly different forms. I love the role of an ancient nature. I love that it is echoes the wild essence within us...

    I'm rather uneasy with the fact that your newfound religion causes you to be joyful at the (alleged) imminent destruction of the human race. This line of thought leads to religious suicide (martyrdom), and motivates many of the apocalyptic terrorists around the world.

    If running around naked in the country makes you happy, go for it. I'll be waiting here with industrial antibiotics, ready for you to cut your foot on a rock and develop septicemia.

    Honestly, it sounds like you simply desire for a return to nature, and are burned out by urban living. Fortunately, humans can develop ways to synch with their environment, that do not involve dangerous deprivation. This Neo-Paganism is your rationalization of the desire.

    I would enjoy living in a home like the one pictured below. Can't really be more down-to-earth.

    I don't know if that can be attributed to paganism really, unless you count Gnosticism into the fold. The apocalyptic mentality you're referring to is more a feature found within the Abrahamic traditions. The pagan mentality tends to be more fatalistic, and thus the conclusion is usually "live for today, for tomorrow we die" type of thing.

    (Edit, not to you, peguy.)

    Like I said, i'm not here to defend anything.
    I might have been a bit vague, but this thread is not for you or your opinions, Eagleseven. Or anyone stating similar negative views.
    Although, I get your point.
    Like I said, i'm no loony, and I do not dismiss the efficiency of science.
    It's just that it is perhaps a tad *too* effective, so that the rules must change.

    And... I'm not in the mood for martyrdom or suicide, I thoroughly enjoy living

    The point of the thread is to talk about your experiences and beliefs.
    It is not here to argue about whether this is total bullshit or not. To some, it most certainly is.
    This thread is for us who believe, want to believe or almost believe.
