What Is The Basis Of Wiccan Beliefs/Teachings?


I know to a certain extent what the beliefs practices are, on top of at least a few of the members being rather bad at reading, but I’ll put that to the side for now. Whatever the doctrines of Wicca are, what’s their basis. I mean, Islam is based in the Qar’an, which is supposedly infallible. It’s an argument, perhaps a circular one, but it’s there. What evidence is there for Wiccan beliefs being true?
