Thread Name: BS: More pagan stuff
Subject: RE: BS: More pagan stuff
Hi--- Interesting thread here. One thing's been bothering me: 'xtians'. No, it doesn't offend me. But shouldn't it be 'xians' if it's going to make sense? Extra 't' there, you see... Also, I see no reason not to believe that 'paganism' hasn't survived 'til modern times in Western Europe. It's still alive in parts of Eastern Europe, such as the Russian Federation republics of Mari-el and Chuvashia, not to mention the peoples of arctic European Russia.So by pagan we mean anything not Jewish, Christian, or Muslim, right? So perhaps the Kalmyks of Khalmg Tangch (also in Rusian Federation), traditionally Tibetan/Mongol Buddhists, would count as 'pagan.' Thanks----
