Post The collective Pagan/Wiccan/Druidry and Heathenry thread
Although I wouldn't fully subscribe or proclaim any part of these beliefs or codes I take keen interest in Heathenry and after small search I concluded there was no thread to partake in any banter concerning the topic. So I took it upon myself to bestow upon you (hopefully) good banter and an interesting learning journey. If anybody follows a Heathen path perhaps we can share on how you came about it and what it means to you.

I find it interesting. Certainly makes for good lyrics and striking imagery.

But my knowledge is pretty superficial, and I have no spiritual inclination towards it.

Absolutely, there's been use of it in music for years.

What captivates me is the stories, the history, the culture and the way of life.

I also like the ragnorok (Armageddon) story where all that remains is a single oak tree and from inside a man and woman appear. Which is where Christianity got their Adam and Eve concept from, their own "sequel to paganism" if you like.

Yeah, I've always found Ragnarok a pretty dramatic and compelling tale.

Is it just Norse/germanic/saxon you're into?

I got quite into Slavic paganism a few years back, lots of very striking symbols. But, much like western paganism, a lot of it seems to be a retrofitted thing, using accounts written long after the time.

Germanic/Norse and early Anglo-Saxon stuff, I intend to twelve into Celtic and Slavic and universal paganism at some point. Folklore in general is celebrated all over for me, in some way or another.

I am interested in "paganism" in the philosophical, metaphysical and historical sense, e.g. the gods as archetypes, and the mythology surrounding them as a part of European culture, even if we are obviously drawing from post christian sources.

That said, given how much of their culture survives in our language, religious ritual, and what we have learned from modern archaeology etc, I'd say we have some idea about their worldview, if not an actual "religion", which I'm not sure I would subscribe to in either case. But from what I have read, there are some teachings that say they were less concerned with dogmatic belief anyway, and more with symbolism, which makes a pagan religion in a literal and ritualist sense seem kind of pointless to me.

So I have no particular interest in neo-paganism such as wicca or druidry, and no beliefs, other than possibly in a philosophical sense, as it applies to stoicism, and a rejection of the judeo-christian mindset.

There were still pagan holdouts, even among those officially "converted", up until the 16 and 1700's, e.g. the Mari's, Sami's, and parts of rural Lithuania. In fact, there were still reportedly those who carried on the Sami's traditions well into the last century and probably to the present day, they were even recorded during the 1940's and 50's.

I remember reading that even by the Reformation/Counter Reformation, much of the rural peasantry of Europe had never really been fully Christianised and were practicing a Paganised form of Christianity or even a Christianised version of Paganism.

Probably 'Turbo'. ;)

I dated a girl once whose sister was Wiccan (or followed it, and however you describe a devotee of such beliefs), and was even married in the appropriate ceremony. I never met her as she lived interstate. I didn't realise that people actually seriously devoted themselves to these types of beliefs. I never really learned much about it though such as how strictly it was adhered to or any of the other particulars.

Interesting and well thought comment.

God will ask you to kneel and beg forgiveness for your sins, Odin asks that you stand and be a man.

Obviously God will ask you to kneel just before he shoves his cock in your face, it's the Catholic way.Where as Odin will tell you to stand up and take it like a man, because Odin doesn't use lube.

I used to volunteer at a historic trust that maintained a Napoleonic Fort in Chatham, one of the heads of the trust was a Druid and used to book the grounds for their ceremonies (I was there until Halloween and caught a glimpse of "Samhain" penciled into the events calendar), the other people there were really dismissive of it (if they talked about it at all), the guy I worked with once told me "he's a Druid, they worship the Devil or something..."
