    Re: Becoming A Goth

    Well it's a form of expression, isn't it. Similar to how I like to etch Lambda's and Latin phrases onto my things.

    But please don't start with the music.
  2. Re: Tried a spiritual meditation of sorts

    What I love about the mind is that by its very nature, it will "make up" something from the sensations you may feel around you, in such a way that these sensations, energies and entities will almost...
  3. Re: On the Cultus Deorum for our times (my growing fascination with it)

    Surely, some of the gods and goddesses overlap. (?) In which case, to which do you offer your prayers, or do you treat the paralleling archetypes among the Greek and Roman traditions (Zeus vs....
  4. Re: The Least Powerful Member of Pagan Forum

    I forward that motion that 'tis I.

    - My handle here is a cheap crossover parody between the Cynics and Seneca the Younger.
    - I work a day job as an analyst, yet I can barely manage my way through...

    Re: The Whole World Is Satanic

    This is so beautifully worded. Cicero would blush.

    Re: Organ Donation and Paganism

    I like to think that should my essence somehow survive death and reincarnate as another lifeform, that I should be reborn a mushroom. :)
  8. Re: On the Cultus Deorum for our times (my growing fascination with it)

    I like to reference the Wiccan community when I say that publication and information are powerful tools for "normalizing" Neo-Paganism and bumping it up from the status of "lunatic cult" in the eyes...
  9. Re: On the Cultus Deorum for our times (my growing fascination with it)

    I was hooked within the first minute of it!

    And although I am all for our Neo-Pagan brothers and sisters, I cannot help but agree when you on your first point. The world has changed a lot since...

    Re: Organ Donation and Paganism

    Given the context of our time, I view it as a kind of sacrifice. A different spin on the Latin Do ut des ("I give so that you may give"), closer to the pay it forward​ mentality.
  11. On the Cultus Deorum for our times (my growing fascination with it)

    So after listening to a very interesting essay on Roman neo-paganism, I have decided to delve more into the Cultus Deorum and where it stands today in light of the neo-pagan movement. As I research I...

    Re: Undefeated

    It depends on who your opponent is, and the circumstances of every game. From a cursory point of view it may seem impressive, but a few questions arise: Who were your opponents; were they adept chess...

    Re: Families that don't agree

    My mother and my in-laws disagree with my beliefs, but that does not mean we cannot respect each other on a fundamental level. We simply choose to discuss other things.

    Re: Earliest know use of the "F" word

    In retrospect, finding "FVCK" in something in Plutarch's, Livy's or Tacitus' works would have been funny, but also unnerving.
  15. Re: Which came first, he Prophet or the Quran?

    Is this as controversial as I think it will be?

    Re: Earliest know use of the "F" word

    Ooh. I never knew German to be humorous too in that sense. I might consider studying German next then if that's the case. :p

    Re: Earliest know use of the "F" word

    Very classy, these Anglo-Saxons.
  18. Re: As a Pagan...what significance does evolution hold for you?

    We're all children of the unfolding cosmos/universe either way. It is said in Norse lore that the gods are only immortal in relation to our ourselves, but there shall come a time when they too must...
  19. Heimdall, Social Class & What it Means For Us Today

    Throughout the lore, Heimdallr figures as a particularly interesting character - not only in the sense that he will ultimately signal the arrival of Ragnarok, but also in his own contributions to...
  20. Re: migrants:What to do...Europe needs to decide.

    I can relate.
  21. Re: Fighting the Good Fight: New Paganism's Epic Struggle with Racism

    Precisely!

    Folkism as an ideology almost always leads to racism or racial separatism, whichever term you feel more like using at this juncture. Strangely enough it only seems to have gained vogue...
  22. Re: migrants:What to do...Europe needs to decide.

    The only feasible solution imo, albeit a Bennite one, would be prior background checks and a no-tolerance policy towards troublemakers. I am of the opinion that the Scandinavian nations today are too...
  23. Re: Fighting the Good Fight: New Paganism's Epic Struggle with Racism

    An amusing distraction to real, genuine practice, so to speak. I agree.

    Re: How do you make a living?

    That's a very unique career track - playing gigs as a harpist. I don't even think I've met a harpist ever, let alone seen a harp in person!

    Music and arts sound like very good hobbies/side stints...
