    You are projecting back onto Ancient Greek culture, the cultural values of today. And they don't fit.

    What does fit is a shallow form of malice.

    I had more in here, originally, but I decided it's pointless to bring it up. I suppose I'll just explain myself a little more on the off chance that it does any good.

    I started this thread with a sarcastic comment about some of the gibberish that is taught in schools about history (Columbus did not discover the world was round, and I don't know why people in the U.S teach children that he did. It's a common misconception people believe in, because it's taught to them, when in fact it's utterly bullshit. ), and you somehow interpreted that as a psychic disturbance. I guess things sort of deteriorated from there.

    This sums up perfectly how I feel about the entire forum at the moment to be honest, I'm not sure if its online discussion per se.

    I cant be sure of that just yet and if it is then its not something I have always felt and I am not sure of when the watershed was from the earlier style of online discussion I would encounter on early bulletin boards and campaign groups, such as McSpotlight or the forums of different authors. At present it just seems to be very frequently a case of I posted something and things sort of deteriorated from there

    Unfortunately paganism today has degenerated into superstition. Paganism today would not be recognised as paganism by the Ancient Greeks, and certainly not by Hypatia, the pagan librarian of the great pagan library of Alexandria.

    Fall in love with the beautiful pagan, Hypatia, devoid of superstition and who discovered the Earth's rotation about the Sun. Just click on YouTube
    To bring this thread back to life, (or attempt to), I will state here that I share your love of Hypathia- She was most defiitely ahead of her time. Sad what befell her at the end, but nonetheless, I believe more attention should be paid to her.
