These are not my teachings. Try some Hutton on for size or learn to click some links. I've sprinkled them in my posts
People who try to sell a version of the witch-cult hypothesis are selling snake oil
Indeed I'd not want you to think you could rely on someone like Steven Akins of that Ilk.

Perhaps on of those links will lead you down the rabbit hole, to who I am in real life
I doubt it, as you don't seem to be reading things, beyond "oh here is something I think is true".

Well if you ask if i understand the culture? No, i dont.. i dont understand the culture of masons, i dont understand the culture of druids.. I do understand facts and symbolism. I do understand a universal philosophy and mythology.

Nietzche was declared in his great work Zarathustra;" A border is defined by a culture "

You believe in yourself to much, this world is not magical.. There is no such thing as magic, magic exist in stories..

Venus or the mother created a balance in this world.. You are a human, who tries to become a druid..

....and what exactly have I said I am? I have nowhere in any of my posts made any declaration of 'what' I am.
You are quite within your right to take the word of someone you know from Wales rather than some 'somebody' on the internet that is also from Wales.

Nietzsche declared a whole heap of things, it did not make them so. He was just a philosopher with a point of view. Similarly Jung had a lot of ideas, that have no basis. People follow them though don't they? For good or ill (especially Nietzsche).

I will make this very simple for you. There is no culture of druids! It was a job, in a series of cultures. The Celtic speaking peoples of the west. Not the Germanic speaeking, not the Itallic speaking, not the Greek speaking, but the Celtic speaking peoples. Some of these other cultures had similar roles (try some Georges Dumézil on for size, some of his ideas are still relevant, some not).

So I ask, do you know what that prophesy I shared was? Who was said to have said it?

I'm not a Druid. You as a comic reader should know who Dr Druid was
It is a nickname which has been applied to me. I'm a Celtic Reconstructionist a Pàganachd, a member of an nDraíocht. I've never claimed I was a Druid of old
I do know a lot of them however neighbour.

Try some O'hogain for a populist look, or some Hutton. Try some Carr-Gomm, try some Bonewits, or some Geer. It depends which of the revivals you are after


But read the myths.

As I said young Lord Snow, you know nothing.

Why would I be interested in Scientology? I am a Polytheist. He seems more your flavour of nut.

Reading your posts, you seem to like the more new age ideas
I use that in my evaluation of who I trust.

That point of view got him a place in history ? So did Jungs view? Both had a basis, im sure you have a basis of your views? Nietzche influenced Freud, psychology is a modern science based on a topic 16th century science called zoology.
( Conrad Gessner )

Everything is based on observation, what is yours based on? Faith alone?

What i learned about modern day society, anyone can be whatever they want to be as long as you believe in it.. Tragic however it might be

nut? you called Hubbard a nut, wow, one of the greatest minds of the 20th century a nut? You really believe yourself to be some sort of messiah?

You really don't understand logic do you? Hubbard is a well established nut. His creation, is considered a cult, based on the sociopathic behavior of it's leadership. L Ron Hubbard, and his nephew Ed Hubbard (founder of Witch School) are megalomaniacs.

So I do not take seriously that you feel L Ron is a great mind. Next Sun Myung Moon will be a great and democratic leader of a spiritual movement


IF you knew Paganism, you would understand there is no messiah. You are stuck in the Abrahamic paradigm. Stuck in the rituals of your lonely little deity.

You see if the Druid community can offer the same thing as the Abrahamitic faith, then maybe you could actually have a functioning society.. First western civilization was first the Jewish then the Greek, same cultural dogma..

If the goal is to get a place in history, most of the National Socialist movement is thus worthy? OR Anders Behring Breivik? Perhchance Jeffery Dahmer? That is the problem with people today, they think getting "remembered" no matter what, is the goal.

A faith may only be based on ...duh duh duh a gnosis. Spiritual knowledge, aka faith. No faith in the world can claim otherwise, and be honest. Thus my spiritual path is just that a faith. My day job is not a faith, it is based on eídein (intellectual knowledge aka facts), aka I am a scientist. I don't let either influence the other.

You are trying to shift the goal posts during the game neighbour, that is very naughty, and a sign of the weakness in your argument.

This is not a wang measuring contest neighbour. Those who make it such, have smaller ones anyway
Abrahamic faith has given so much to history. The crusades, progroms, the Northern Ireland secterian nonsense, Middle eastern conflic with all three branches killing each other.

Shall we play that game?

What the Pagan community offers, is just to those who choose to follow it. Its not about world domination. That is what got us to the level of Carbon in the atmosphere
There is no omnipresent deity, just the omnipresent foolishness of man. T he Gods are many.

Tell me neighbour how much of the world have you seen? I've been on every continent (yes even Antarctica).

You need to prove my ideas are delusional, not say that they are so. So far you have only demonstrated that you are a bit of a kook. Shame the monthly award is not going anymore, you might be up there.

Prove I am delusional. Oh but first you need to find my paths tenants. There are several 1000 of us involved. its all on the net. Follow the breadcrumbs young man

You make claims, based on nothing..

Im a pink elephant in a room full of balloons, its based on my knowledge about the matrix in the comic world.. I believe in it so its the truth, i call it Marvelunismo.. And i can show you cave paintings of elephants and round thins in africa.. Did you believe in it`?

Its your own gnosis, nothing more.. Dont make it universal cause you base it on, nothing than stories..

You think to highly of something that is nothing more than faith and belief in a world you have problem grasping..

You don't understand what gnosis and faith are do you? IS this perchance a "English is not my first language" problem I wonder?

As I said, I belong to an organization with a few thousand members. If you knew the right words to follow, you'd know which


I am not making my gnosis universal, There is no such thing. I don't even try. I'm not Abrahmic after all. You mistake historic evidence (viz the Druids of the pre-Christian Celtic speaking cultures are all gone) and my faith (I am a Polytheistic follower of the old gods of my ancestors).
