Yeah, any more 'loading' will get me banned from the Forum for my next 6 life-times, if not longer.

I agree Harlan. Many who claim to be 'pagans' merely cherry pick bits of an ancient culture that appeal to them. There is good information out there, and their are genuine followers of pagan beliefs. They are seldom the dreadlocked students spouting Environmental issues around universities however.




This reminds me of how much I hate hippies.

The premise was because test-tube babies (if at all possible) will have no soul because it is not a product of a 'true & natural' sexual union. It is just a 'being' not a human being.




Just a question; how did the author explained that children conceived by rape often turn out to be normal children? What about artificial insemination? Sounds like a crock of s--t to me, but I guess I'm biased because I don't believe in an immaterial soul...

The cult of Bacchus (Dionysus in Greek) was suppsed to be performed by women, who went crazy with dancing and singing and praising the god, then went up to a hill and supposedly engaged in a massive and mysterious drunken orgy.

Before any of you guys ask where to find such a spectacle, read The Bacchae by Euripides and find out what happens to men who accidentaly discover and peep in on this little event....

Poor poor Pentheus...

(Yes, yes...but all the lovely violets we got out of the sacrifice.)

This is the problem with the masses and practices that have not eradicated the feminine principle...basically grounded in a basic level. Most people don't seem to understand...that 'oneness' is on different levels.

I'm not as well read. could someone give a simplified analogy so I can follow the topic...are you saying this is kind of like if a child grows up in a nudest society, they just see people....they don't see them as naked men and women. or am I out in left field?

Still seeing outside of self...seeing a dichotomy between 'self' and 'other'...even if not gender.

I'm actually in an ongoing debate with a few such people. I was just trying to use their symbolism.

Being a die-hard Christian, I'm slightly shocked when people explain my attitude toward sex for me. Just a warning before I flame you all .

Original question rephrased. Can a person be alone and content at the same time?

I can. Being alone is not the same as being lonely. Being alone, for me, in the best sense, is connected to everything. Not sure what you are referring to...following a monastic path?
