A strong pagan belief is that the natural world is embedded in all of us. One method of defining the landscape is by building monuments. The construction of tombs at the boundaries of territory illustrates to outsiders that the area is rightfully yours, since it belonged to your ancestors. A succession of ritual monuments known throughout prehistoric Europe, from wooden trackways to henges (stone or wooden circles), suggest the strong influence of altering the landscape as a way of defining territory within the pagan belief system.
According to Roman records, the Iron Age Celtic peoples of Britain consisted of war-like tribes - but this could well be propaganda of the age. In 43 AD, as now, invaders found ways of justifying their subjugation of the native people whose country they colonised and whose land they took. Whatever the reality, the image of rough, heavy-drinking hooligans and evil barbarians is what we have been left with.
Today magic is used as a form of entertainment. It still thrills us to see an apparently impossible phenomenon happen before our eyes. Reaching back through to prehistoric times, the pagan magicians, who could conjure material from nothing or predict the future, would almost certainly have been held in the highest regard.
This Episode Looks back to a time before sex was taboo, when humans saw themselves as an integral part of the natural world, the underlying theme is of human similarity with animals and nature. Where modern religion aims to emphasise the difference between humans and the world around us, portraying sexuality as taboo, the ancient pagan perspective blurs these boundaries and explores all the elements of the world on equal terms.
As in, for some reason, atheists give off this, feel. It’s hard to explain, but you can tell when someone is atheist. Like wise, you can kinda tell when someone is pagan because they took give off this, I can’t explain it, I guess “aura” of some sorts. But Christians of course, can be identified because they’re the ones out partying and stuff. ^_^ But why is this? so where’ s the other chopstick? hmm, maybe lupa has a point.
Seeing as how much of Christianity is really pagan tradition just “christianized” and that they corrupted Pagan gods to create Demons I figure Beelzebub was some Pagan God too. If he is which one is he?
