    I wouldn't say I've gone so far as name what I believe (more due to lack of strict definition rather than wanting it to be that way, lol) and as such don't claim to be pagan or anything - however (and I seldom get into this with people, or otherwise i spend far too long trying to explain it!) I do have a belief system, more spiritual than strictly religious, and it is all effectively energy-based. So links quite well to the earth based religions/spiritualities - certainly more so than dogmatic religions.

    So where are we going to take it? I wouldn't like to see all this energy and enthusiam just fizzle out and get lost in the threads. Do we want to set up a blog, like for the piccies, or is that too much?

    Maybe we should just see how things go on the thread for a while first JayGee, what you think?

    Wait and see how many more people wish to post :)

    Ok, so how long has everyone been pagan, or of a similar belief? :)

    my parents dont have one! but they were always happy for me to have whatever religion i wanted. tried it all. c of e, roman catholic, islam, jehovahs witness and a million more. nothing worked!!

    so decided that instead of looking for a religion that fitted my beliefs exactly (especially regarding sex) just wasnt gonna happen. so figured after a while, when i got to about 18 that i didnt need one!

    i love discussing religion, though. my favourite topic. would love to be an RE teacher, but the curriculum is waaaay too strict for any real discussion. x

    My parents are c of e, my mums alot more religious than my dad though.

    But i've never really talked to either of them about religion of any sorts.

    Why not be a philosophy/ethics teacher??? From my experience, that was more relaxed in regards to discussion and topics in comparison to RE x x

    well i dunno if i'm really a pagan (i don't practice or anyhting)

    but ive always liked being at nature and the respect paganism has for everything in this world. this has been going since i was little, as my pearents hold the same sort of beliefs. Im reguarly in the forsest with my archery too and hate living in the city.

    Sorry to jump in all previous with the "blog" thing - just am aware of how some threads can sink on here.

    Well, I was raised Church of Scotland - very Presbyterian - but we weren't regular churchgoers. I decided it was a load of hokum one night when, near to Hallowe'en, living in a small village with nothing better to do, I went to a Baptist night and won their quiz simply by spouting answers from memory! When I was in my early 20s I was introduced to Starhawk by a workmate (The Fifth Sacred Thing is still one of my favourite books). Life and politics kind of took over then a few years ago I decided to look again at that aspect of me. As I say, I'm not a Druid per se, but feel that their earth-respecting, tree-based spirituality makes a lot of sense to me.
