Subject: RE: BS: More pagan stuff
aw, Jeez, Okie, give it a rest will ya?????? This religion and the crafting of its history, both actual and hopeful, has come close to becoming an art form. It is the closest thing many pagan academics have to a hobby. Stop already with your relentless pursuit of proof, and your picayunish insistence on being so damn correct in that pursuit. We all KNOW the Burning Times didn't happen that way. We know Graves was a poet, not a historian. We know Iolo Morganw was a plagiarist. We know tracing contemporary pagan "traditions" to actual historical occurrences is a fool's errand (though Hutton is doing a damn fine job of it).

We know. Doesn't make the imagery, romance or beauty of it all any less valuable.

blessed be
