Quote from: Ace101 on March 29, 2015, 05:39:30 PMJesus Christ, what a lot of horseshit - most people who are Christian grew up being taught it from a young age - most people who are Wiccan just 'decide one day' to start worshiping ancient pagan gods who no one believes in - huge difference. There's no effort to 'recruit' people into being Wiccans, or 'provide proof' that their religion is true - like there is in Christianity or Islam. I think the majority of them are just rebellious teens (and adults) who want negative attention and don't really believe any of it.
Quote from: Jakenessif you believe in the supernatural, you do not understand modern science. Period.

Quote from: stromboli on March 29, 2015, 08:46:32 PMSo what's the deal here, Ace? come on the forum and see how many people you can piss off before getting booted? If you want to make comments about stuff why don't you first look it up. wikipedia, google, that kind of shit. Every religion from our viewpoint can be looked at as fake because they are based on supernatural beliefs. Strangely enough, Wicca also includes knowledge of herbal medicines and belief in natural cycles and a natural lifestyle to go with it. All in all a fairly healthy lifestyle that does not, to my knowledge, impinge on anyone's rights. It is also based on very ancient pagan beliefs that predate most religions. Really ought to find this shit out before you join the forum and start spouting your opinions. We like to think we are informed people. Something that doesn't seem to work in your world.
Quote(edit) So twink for brains is a Deist and he is bad mouthing Wicca? Stromboli will see where this goes......
Quote from: Ace101 on March 29, 2015, 03:39:51 PMI have a hard time believing that any members of this "religion" seriously believe in these ancient pagan gods, or in "magic" or anything else - to me it's more like a "live action fantasy role playing club" than an actual religion - what say you?
Quote from: PickelledEggs on March 29, 2015, 10:05:17 PMWhat makes wicca more fake than christianity or judaism?
Quote from: Ace101 on March 29, 2015, 10:06:49 PMBasically how many people seriously believe its real, versus how many people do it 'just for fun'
Quote from: PickelledEggs on March 29, 2015, 10:09:23 PMWhat about the people that seriously believe wicca is real
Quote from: Ace101 on March 29, 2015, 10:11:55 PMI've never heard of any myself.Never heard of Wiccas getting into 'debates' trying to convince others of their faith, or trying to find 'proof' of their Gods' origins like creationists do.
QuoteDeism (/ËˆdiË.ÉªzÉ™m/ or /ËˆdeÉª.ÉªzÉ™m/, derived from the Latin word deus meaning "god") combines a rejection of religious knowledge as a source of authority with the conclusion that reason and observation of the natural world are sufficient to determine the existence of a single creator of the universe. Deism gained prominence among intellectuals during the Age of Enlightenment â€" especially in Britain, France, Germany and the United States â€" who, raised as Christians, believed in one god but became disenchanted with organized religion and notions such as the Trinity, Biblical inerrancy and the supernatural interpretation of events such as miracles. Included in those influenced by its ideas were leaders of the American and French Revolutions.
