  1. We didn't really have an occult conspiracy in my church in the 90s. The occult got lumped in with new age, out of body experiences , crystals, etc. The Satanic Panic and Prayer Warriors were present in my Pente church but that was about it.
  2. If someone was raised as a Christian and also had the wicked ability to create a tulpa...but weren't aware of the tulpa concept....then Jesus Christ could be an entire separate personality inside their head. If you had a tulpa in your head named Jesus that behaved according to the gospels then you'd be pretty adamant that Jesus is real. For me, though, Jesus was never more than a vague hazy imagination that wasn't much different than my personality. ... Maybe the holy spirit is just an energy egregore thoughtform.
  3. I noticed it out there in the sky a few days ago. Really bright.
  4. Oh cool. I've read that having your own homemade stuff is 'better' in certain ways than store bought, but mine always looks like crap. lol Thanks for the info on the pentacle. I have a stick that 'called out' to me... at least more than the other sticks in the area so I wrapped some suede fringe around it for a handle and then threw it in my box of magic stuff. I really ought to get off the computer and go out and commune with nature a bit. Maybe draw some sigils in the dirt, make rocks into sigil shapes (I'm very sigil oriented). I found a nice metal cup at a 2nd hand store....2nd hand stores seem great for picking up neato stuff. I wouldnt mind having some large runes or some large tiles, or lettered tiles for spellcraft. Hope you get that wand made. Take care.
  5. I have no artistic ability nor crafting ability. And I think having some really nice magic tools and decorations would be quite helpful to enhance my magic life. It certainly would make ritual better. Probably need to spend a few dollars on that this year.
  6. Hi, Phil. Welcome to Ex-c.net. I see you suffer from guilt. I only had a 10 year stint in Christianity but it left me with some fear , guilt and shame. I consider fear, guilt and shame the three pillars of Christianity, now. It certainly is not based on love. It really is a big mindf**k that programs you to think that weird ideas are perfectly acceptable and make sense. Unfortunately biblical ideas, which are evil in themselves were presented to by your mom, who sounds like she may have emotional problems to go along with the toxic religion. Sorry you had to deal with all that. Glad to see you found some paganism (hopefully) to your liking. While Christianity is a repressive system of thought and feeling, I found paganism to be whatever I damn well want it to be . This is a great place to deconstruct Christianity, meet others who went thru the nonsense that you did, and find some healing if you need it. Anyway, welcome.
  7. Sounds like you're having a rough time , at the moment. I hope you have a better day tomorrow. I hope there's someone you can talk with , at least by phone if not in person.
  8. I was quite interested in witchcraft, but then took a left turn at chaos magic. I'm more into the magic aspect than the nature aspect but I like pagans and they seem a bit more normal than chaos mages on chaos web forums. But I prefer to call myself a pagan because I identify with these types of magical people.
  9. I joined the fold at age 30 , left it at 40, so I dont miss it. Even if Jesus isn't real there can still be a lot of emotional power behind it because a lot of people believe it. What if you stripped out all the stuff you dont like about Christianity (like other Christians do but claim not to do), left in the stuff you do like...would that be a helpful faith? edit: It's much easier to worship a popular deity like Jesus and a bit harder to worship lesser known, lesser worshiped deities , especially as a solitary practitioner. You could take a look at what you 'get back' from worshiping either one. It may be similar. And the more you worship your entity the more they may conform to what you prefer a deity to be like.
  10. Well, I cant really ask for any more than that. Otherwise I'm overstepping boundaries. I'm usually pushing boundary limits when these topics come up and should probably just chill. Now if I adopt a non-dual attitude...there's nobody to debate with ...except my Self. Problem solved. /s
  11. Probably best to just quietly enjoy your own beliefs with those who share a common interest.
  12. People who want to believe these types of things most likely will. Others who dont want to believe these types of things most likely wont. Evidence is probably irrelevant.
  13. Here's Donald Hoffman for 40 minutes (sorry it's so long). The more I think about his ideas the more it blows my mind.
  14. Our flawed senses, not to mention how our brain fills in the blanks with what it 'thinks' ought to be out there due to past experience.
