Earth based, nature religion. Even that's not correct for all Pagan's but it is for most so that's what I think of I also tend to think of kinda hippyish type folk

I think tree huggers too LOL.

But the first thing I think of is Goddess. People who believe in not just a male diety/energy but female as well.

When you think of Pagans do you think of kooky people or do you think of regular folk and did your impression change from before you were Pagan and doing things in a Pagan way??

This is totally backwords, I know... but pagans online are normal and IRL they're WEIRD. The couple we live with are pagan, but they don't do/celebrate anything, they just believe in general pagan ideas.

Anne, Steph and Tiff don't count as IRL since I met them online first. They're normal

Pagans are regular folk and have always been. I would watch movies and think, do people really act like that. Craft was such a funny movie to me.

I havent met too many IRL so I cant compare totally. BUT Ive seen a few on tv that are really odd LOL.
Online they dont seem kooky at all.


Do you think being open minded is a Pagany thing more so than other religions? Or do you think it really is just a people thing.

I think Pagans are a bit more open minded, however I also think it's a people thing as well... if that makes sense? lol

And I should explain why.. I think Pagans can tend to be more open minded because we, in general, understand what it's like to be discriminated (is that the right word) against because of our beliefs, so that "helps" with us understanding not to judge too quickly.

I think we all have the ability to think outside of the box. It is just how comfortable we are being outside of the box.

Ok...what about the Threefold Law.

Do you think most Pagans follow something like it? Do you?
What are your thoughts on it.

I think most Wiccans follow it, as it's mainly a Wiccan ideal, however lots of Pagan's follow it.

I believe more Pagan's DON'T believe in it though. They believe in Karma, but not the 3fold law.

I don't believe in the three fold law. I believe in Karma. I don't understand why there would be some arbitrary number the universe likes to reward/punish. It seems silly to me.

Do you suppose when it was written it was not necessarily meant to be exactly 3-fold but that was just the authors interpretation on how things seemed to come about. Kinda like celebrity deaths seem to always happen in 3's??

But the basic is really that its gonna come bite you in the butt in the end.

I do believe things happen in 3s. It can be good or bad. I have believed this all my life. My parents brought me up with this way of thinking.

Do you think all Pagans are nature conscience or perhaps thats become another idea that isnt necessarily true about all but has been thrust upon them?

I like trees, birds, butterflies, and such. I am allergic to many things out in nature, like grass. I also dislike bugs crawling on me.

No, they're not. I think that is something a lot of Pagans think about Pagans but there are a ton who are not nature based.

I sure am though!!

LOL Couldnt tell you were at all Jackie! LOL

Im sorta inbetween. Id love to be more of an outdoor enthusiast but my allergies restrain that.

I love driving around and looking at the beauty of the earth tho. I love listening to rain and storms and watching it fall from my front window. I love seeing rainbows and birds flying around tweeting away. I love mountains and certain trees and flowers.

But Im not a fan of actually sitting out in it or walking around in it for hours. My allergies catch me and I become miserable. And Im all for going a bit green...Im trying to find a nice balance between it all. kwim?
