Paganism today Paganism is a collection of diverse contemporary religions rooted in or inspired by indigenous traditions worldwide. Pagan religions are characterized by Earth- centered spirituality, belief in the interconnection of all life, personal autonomy, polytheism, and immanent divinity. Pagans value diversity, good works, living lightly on the Earth, individual freedom, personal responsibility, community service, gender equity, and spiritual development. While the largest segment of the Pagan population is Caucasian, highly educated, and middle class, Pagans come from all walks of life. Most are avid readers with interests in ecology, creativity, and personal growth. Many work in scientific and computer- related disciplines. Since Paganism is not an organized movement, it is difficult to determine the number of practitioners. Estimates range from 100,000 to several million in the U.S. alone. Pagan religions may draw on ancient historical practices or be entirely new. In the case of the former, Pagans look to the beliefs, practices, gods, symbols, lands, music, and myths of a particular historical culture and adapt them for contemporary needs. Anachronistic elements, such as ritual violence, are rejected. Elements such as reverence for the natural world, honoring of the ancestors, and responsibility to the community are retained. Pagan religions which are not historically based take their inspiration from visionary, artistic, and libertarian traditions to create vibrant spiritual systems centered in Pagan values.

Wicca and Neo-Paganism
Twentieth Century Victorian Druids The Burning Times ... Current Phase of the Moon Neopaganism covers a wide range of belief systems which have emerged in the past 50 years, primarily in the UK, Europe, and the United States. This includes the better known Wicca, which is a synthesis of traditions from the British Isles, as well as many less visible groups which draw inspiration from other parts of the world. Based on folk-lore, traditional spiritual practices, anthropology, and a synthesis of esoteric systems, Neopaganism does not have any sacred texts of the same vintage as other religions, although unverifiable claims have been made in a couple of cases (e.g. Aradia , and The Gardnerian Book of Shadows Rather, the books presented here are the source texts of Neopaganism. Many of these books contain outdated or speculative material, and some of the texts here are the product of the Renaissance witch hunters. As a whole, the books here are of historical importance rather than a roadmap to modern pagan practice, and shouldn't be construed as such. As always, we encourage readers to think critically. Descriptions of contemporary Neopagan practice and beliefs can be found in the Internet Book of Shadows section of this site.

Some Christian Observations on
Paganism and Wicca
Jerald Gardener. Conisdered by many to be
the Father of the modern Wiccan movement
The following article has been written from a variety of different sources. These include: My own former experience with Witchcraft and occultism in general prior to my conversion to Christ, reading various Pagan and Wiccan literature, having Pagan and Wiccan friends, and having numerous email, message board, and chat room dialogues with those in the Pagan communities. This article will seek to identify, and assess, issues relevant to both Pagans and Christians alike, in a fair and balanced manner. Ecology
Pagans of all persuasions revere nature. In fact, many individuals are attracted to Paganism as a direct result of a connection that they feel with the world around them and the beauty of the world they see. This reverence for nature leads many Pagans to the conclusion that the world itself must be divine. ""Our religion is about the sacredness of this life on this Earth, here and now. We are "Nature worshipers" so Nature is a sacred study for us. To paraphrase, we want to see Her more clearly, love Her more dearly, and follow her more nearly. Any ecological study, any bird watching, or other such activities, help us to understand Mother Gaia." ( Chas S. Clifton (ed.), Modern Rites of Passage: Witchcraft Today, Book Two, 1994, p. 99

The New Age Movement: Reversion to Paganism
How the New Age Movement undermines the very foundations of a moral society By Mayer Adani For the past several decades, as a strategic exploitation by the Secular Humanist camp of the human tendency toward the spiritual, there has been a concerted propagation of a spirituality which denies G-D and His Law. This Modern Pagan Resurgence –promoted by leading personalities including "former" Communists (e.g., Mikhail Gorbachev, Nelson Mandela)– is the so-called New Age Movement. What is the New Age Movement (NAM)?
The essence of the NAM is “Spirituality Without [Biblical] Morality”. The NAM is a collection of movements that seeks to supplant the relatively monotheistic worldview of Western society with a modern version of the occultic, pre-Abrahamic pagan worldview. “Shifting Paradigms,” one name for the NAM, is correct, but vague. “Back to Babel” is more precise. For several decades, a growing collection of subversive movements has been coalescing around this international occultic pagan resurgence, promoting causes such as:

6. Christmas Paganism
Contends that Christmas is not a Christian holiday and encourages readers to follow Jesus.
The True Meaning Of Christmas
Except for Christ in the name, Christmas is pagan. The word mass is pagan and the customs surrounding it and Christmas are pagan. The very celebration without the rituals surrounding it is pagan. Pagan simply means that it is not from God. What is fr om God is easily proven. You can find it in your own Bible. The only mention of a yearly birthday celebration other than the actual day of birth is in the book of Job. Even then it is somewhat speculative. Jobs children it is said celebrated each thei r own day. They were all put to death and Job was sorely tested for his self righteousness. I believe that the testing was because Job allowed his family to practise a pagan observance. Pagan observances were all originated by man or by Satan through man. The origins of these traditions and the customs that surround them are often very difficult to trace. Because a specific custom or tradition cannot be traced is no reason to attribut e it to God. God's commandments and ordinances are easily found in the pages of the readily available Bible. It is interesting to note that the word tradition is one of only two words in the New Testament that adds up to 666, the number of the beast and of the mark of the beast spoken of in the book of Revelations chapter 13. The other word is wealth. As far as wealth goes the Roman Catholic Church does not need charitable contributions. It is self sufficient. It is wealthy. It is deeply entangled in politics, business and monetary ventures and schemes throughout much of the world. It has roots in the old Holy Roman Empire.

(Kohl-YAH-da) - The Winter Solstice.
Most agree that the word comes from the Roman word "calendae" which meant the first 10 days of any month. Some, however, believe the word is derived from the word "Kolo" or wheel - much like the word "Yule" is an Anglo-Saxon word for wheel. The holiday's original name may have been "Ovsen". The holiday was filled with revelry. Processions of people masked like animals and cross-dressers roamed the village. Often they were accompanied by a "goat"- a goat's head, either real or (usually) made and stuffed on a stick. The person holding the "goat" would be covered by a blanket to play the part. Sometimes a child on horseback - symbol of the reborn sun - would accompany them; the horse was often played by two young men in horses costumes. One of the wenders would carry a spinning solar symbol, internally lit by a candle, on a stick. Later, after Christianity entered the scene, the spinning "sun" became a star.
This unusual group would stop and sing Koljada songs from house to house. These songs usually included invocations to "Koljada", the god or goddess of the holiday, praises and good wishes,requests for handouts and threats for refusal. The handouts, also called "koljada", usually took the form of little pastries or "korovki" shaped like cows or goats. The were sometimes just in the shape of the animals head, but often were described as having "horns and tails and everything." The korovki were traditionally baked by the old people in the house, the grandmothers and grandfathers.

Features articles on PaganHindu spirituality and a comparative exploration of the connection between Celtic and Vedic religion, society and folklore.
BOOK INFO DAILY QUOTES AUTHOR BIOS ... LINKS Welcome to the Indian Paganism site This site has two main objectives - Firstly, to contribute towards the development of modern Pagan-Hindu Magickal traditions within the fields of contemporary Paganism and Magick. Secondly, to explore the thousands of years of various Pagan and Hindu beliefs, traditions and customs in a comparative context. There already exists a great degree of shared roots and similarity between Pagan and Hindu religions, such as those of Wicca and Tantrika. Today many modern eclectic Pagans, Witches and Magicians work with Hindu deities and various aspects of Hindu paths. There are also groups who are working in Pagan-Hindu Magickal systems. This site, and the coming book 'Indian Paganism', aim to help the continuing development of this movement by assisting in the growth of modern Pagan-Hindu Magickal traditions and practices. Click to subscribe to Indian Paganism Daily Quotes The Indian Paganism site also offers a free daily quote service which shares either a Pagan, Hindu, or Magickal quote each day. Quotes are drawn from a wide variety of quality sources and reflect the extensive philosophy and underlying unity which exist between Paganism and Hinduism. The main resource areas from which quotes are drawn are Wiccan, Witchcraft, Classical Pagan, Neo-Pagan, Tantrik, Vedic, and Ceremonial Magick. A few of the authors and figures quoted include Starhawk, Doreen Valiente, Stewart Farrar, Marcus Aurelius, Ramana Maharshi, Swami Sivananda, Bhagavan Nityanandaji, Sri Ramakrishna, Aliester Crowley, Dion Fortune, and Eliphis Levi.

In simplest terms Paganism is a religion of place, or a native religion, for example the Native American's religion is Pagan, Hinduism is a form of Paganism. All Pagan religions are characterised by a connection and reverence for nature, and are usually polytheistic i.e. have many Gods and/or Goddesses. Modern Paganism as practised in the west is particular to the native peoples of the west and although there are many forms most are descended from Celtic origins. Modern Paganism or 'neo-Paganism' has the following characteristics: Paganism is a religion of nature, in other words Pagans revere Nature. Pagans see the divine as immanent in the whole of life and the universe; in every tree, plant, animal and object, man and woman and in the dark side of life as much as in the light. Pagans live their lives attuned to the cycles of Nature, the seasons, life and death. Unlike the patriarchal religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism) the divine is female as well as male and therefore there is a Goddess as well as a God. These deities are within us as well as without us (immanent); they

16. O'Donnell, Demise
THE DEMISE OF paganism*. BY JAMES J. O'DONNELL. Traditio 35(1979),4588. There Christianity triumphed, but paganism survived. To
There exists a large, remarkably homogeneous literature on the conflict between paganism and Christianity in the last decades of the fourth century. This study is a preliminary attempt to re-examine that conflict and point out new lines for interpretation of familiar evidence. A redefinition of our conceptions of what paganism was at this period will be followed by a close study of the men and events around whom the traditional narratives of its last revivals have been constructed. A concluding section will outline the ways in which, according to the new definitions proposed here, paganism may be said to have survived its apparent destruction. This is only, to repeat, a preliminary study. It focuses chiefly upon the same relatively narrow body of evidence which has formed the core of previous studies of the subject, in an attempt to show how even that evidence is susceptible of some radically new interpretations. The ideas contained in this paper grew out of a long-standing fascination with Augustine's De civitate Dei and a desire to appreciate more precisely the polemical situation in which that work is to be understood. If the conclusions of this preliminary study have any merit, they will need to be refined and strengthened by further work on just such subjects as Augustine's monument of apologetic. It is to facilitate such work and to excite discussion that this paper is published now.

‘Is some riddle solved by my surviving forever?
Is not eternal life itself as much of a riddle as our present life?’ Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus logico-philosophicus Given the extent to which modern-day pagans take as a truism that many of our folk customs have, unconsciously, retained relics of their heathen origins is traceable to the success of one man’s major opus - Sir James George Frazer’s The Golden Bough , a multi-volume work published in the 1890s. ‘It is difficult to overrate the influence of The Golden Bough . It offered a pattern which was immediately and attractively available; and it proceeded to dominate attitudes and thinking to a remarkable extent. The vegetation drama, ritual death and resurrection, the sacred tree, became accepted elements . . .’ So observed Roy Judge in his study of the Jack-in-the-Green [1], also noting that the Frazerian influence was complex.

Available in Finnish at: Just as the term " Eastern religions " refers to Buddhism Hinduism Taoism , etc., the terms " Neo-Pagan " " Neopagan ," and " Pagan " refer to a collection of separate religions that share a few common themes. A Neopagan religion is a modern faith which has been recently reconstructed from beliefs, deities, symbols, practices and other elements of an ancient religion. For example, the Druidic religion is based on the faith and practices of the ancient Celtic professional class; followers of Asatru adhere to the ancient, pre-Christian Norse religion; Wiccans also trace their roots back to the pre-Celtic era in Europe. Other Neo-pagans follow Roman, Greek, Egyptian or another ancient tradition. Many Wiccans and other Neopagans refer to themselves simply as " Pagans ." Unfortunately, the word has many different meanings some quite negative. The term " Neopagan " is less ambiguous.
