Sorry, Mr. Smarty Pants had to work a lunch shift today. Anywho, very interesting article. It amazes me how far along nanotech is coming in such a short period of time. But to be truthful, I'm not seeing the 'intelligent design in DNA' angle... Enlightenment, please?

The Thirteen Goals of a Witch Are:
1. Know myself
2. Know my craft
4. Apply knowledge with wisdom
5. Achieve balance
6. Keep my words in good order
7. Keep my thoughts in good order
8. Celebrate life
9. Attune with the cycles of Earth
10. Breathe and eat correctly
11. Exercize the body
13. Honor the Goddess and God
When I read this list for the very first time I was shocked at the common sense of it. I thought witches were, well...hollywood creations, fables, fairy tale creatures, evil hags, old women living in the woods or satan worshippers.
But this list is just plain good old advice for living a happy, productive, positive life. In trying to achieve these life goals, no one is judging me except me. I like that.
Is the fear and animosity toward witches a bi-product left-over from the inquisition and witch burnings? Or is the prejudice coming from established "mainstream" religions? Have the scare tactics that keep you from learning the true nature of witches worn thin yet?
As with all religions, interpretation is personal, therefore results may vary.

I know a lot of very attractive witches. But perhaps, as far as the fat goes, thye really just don't give a crap what you think - they aren't living to provide you with eye candy.
Then too, maybe they are storing too much energy, and maybe a lot of them have more to store than most.

Notice how Wicca changes itself to fit with pop culture. With the feminist movement there's more emphasis on the "Goddess," while people don't realize that the "Goddess" and nature worship really represent the NWO.

Have to check in here, I call myself a Wiccan, for some 25 years now. don't practice rituals or Magick much anymore, but I honor the Goddess, and the Females I run into. We are very peaceful, and we follow the Golden Rule, and the Rule of Three. Blessed Be.
Love and Light to all Pagans and Wiccans in here.

Is anyone else having trouble with number 5?
Achieving balance? I'm really having a hard time with that one these days. It seems the more I try to be balanced in all things, the less able I am to do it. Why is it so difficult to achieve a sense of emotional, physical, mental and spiritual balance?
