Thread Name: Pagan Songs
Subject: RE: Pagan Songs
All discussion of this topic are bedevilled by the use of two opposite meaning of the word pagan often used in the same sentence.
1) Ancient beliefs eventually largely/totally replaced by the spread of Christianity in the the first millennium AD.
2) Load of cobblers invented in the 60's.
Trying to merge these two opposing concepts into a cohesive belief system is an achievement which has so far eluded our greatest thinkers, not to mention our songwriters.
