    How would the discovery of alien life change religion?

    Do you think if we ever discovered alien life that religion would change? Would this maybe cause some creationists for instance to turn away from this way of thinking? What about pagans, would this change paganism at all?

    Religious quizzes.

    I like taking surveys and doing these little quizzes online. AT one point I had even signed up with okay cupid just so I could keep answering their little matchmaking questions. Any way I had found a couple of these quizzes having to do with religion/spirituality/paganism and just thought I...

    Making contact with the Gods

    I was watching videos on various pagan traditions and there was a whole series of videos from different content creators on their matron and patron deities. People were more or less talking about having mother and father figure deities. They also talked about how they came to those deities as...

    Pagans: Are the stories of pagan gods literal truths or allegories ?

    This is a question more for pagans than anyone else. Are the stories of the gods literal truths? Did they happen exactly as described or are they representations of something else? How do you view the pagan gods ? What are they really?

    You ever thought about how difficult the spiritual can be to demonstrate or provide evidence for?

    To someone who likes evidence of something before he or she believes in something it's almost impossible to justify spiritual experience within their own life. Take Jesus for instance, give him all his miracles, give him all his works from the gospel and so on. Would this prove the god he spoke...

    Pretty good for introduction to mythology.

    The Illustrated Encyclopedia of World Mythology: Arthur Cotterell: 9781435127555: Amazon.com: Books This book is really good for introduction to numerous mythologies. It includes just about every major pantheon I can think of and also includes Arabic gods. I was pretty impressed with that. I...

    What would history and religion in the west look like without Christianity?

    I have been wondering recently what the western world would look like without Christianity or without Christianity being the dominant religion? It could be argued that Christianity both divided Europe at times and united it at others. It's possible it was a bit of Christian unity that helped...

    How important is your ancestry in paganism?

    This is a question I expect a lot of different answers for. Afterall there is no real codification of Paganism so you know expecting a uniform answer would be silly. I have had several people on several occasions tell me that the only valid way to worship any pagan deities is to worship those...

    Polytheists and Pagans: What lead you to your spiritual path or pantheon?

    As my own interest in Paganism/polytheism has been kindled I figured I would ask you all what lead you to your current spiritual path? Did the stories of your gods resonate with you? Did one path or another simply "click" with you the more you learned about it? I would love to hear your...

    Why are certain mythologies more popular than others?

    I've noticed in communicating with various pagans online and in person that certain mythologies are far more popular among the pagans than others. But not just pagans. Among popular culture it almost always seems like we get the big 3 , Egypt, Norse, greek and little else. Why isn't...

    Which religion are my beliefs closest to?

    Hello, new to these forums, I joined so I can try to understand my beliefs and where they fit into the various religions, or indeed where they don't! My apologies if this is in the wrong section. So first I'll give you a quick run over my religious history. I've grown up in an Atheist family...

    How important is choose a Pantheon?

    Let us say I was interested in becoming a pagan. How important is the pantheon one such as myself would choose? What kind of resources could I get to learn more about paganism? Could I use my own ideas of gods or do I need to rely on an older model? Any information would be appreciated. Also...

    What are the best arguments in favor of theism and against atheism?

    What arguments do you believe point to there being a God or gods and why do you think this makes more sense than the idea that there are no gods? I am personally a non-believer but I would greatly like to hear arguments against this position and possibly find a religion that at least makes...

    How to choose a faith.

    I've been missing spirituality in my life for awhile now and part of me wants to get it back. How should I go about finding a new faith and or should I just come up with my own? I'm fairly knowledgeable on various faiths but I am having a hard time choosing one to incorporate into my life. I...

    We will all return to God in the end

    i know the abrahamic religions have a strange new belief that only some people reunite while others are eternally seperated, and i'm wondering where or why its was created. Fear tactics? control? Deanism and Goddess religion teaches that Dea created us from Her laughter, so we each have a spark...
