    Any site claiming that Wicca is an ancient religion. Like, WTF? It's not ancient. I don't know where they got that from.

I think there were a few talk shows in the 70's (Merv Griffin was one, can't remember the other) where they publicaly went at each other over the subject.

    Why is Satanism considered not P a g an?

    It depends on what dictionary definition you use.
    The one I go by is pagan= 'Any religion that is not one of the abrahamic faiths (judaism, christianity, islam)' or 'Any religion that isn't mainstream'

    So in my view ( and oxford english dictionary) Satanism IS paganism.

    Unless you consider Satanism to be a form of (reverse) Christianity -- at least those varieties of Satanists who rely on Christian mythology fit that bill.

    If it fits into the Christian category then it's by definition not Pagan.

    Where'd they get that idea?

    Gerald Gardner (and he based his ideas on Margaret Murray).

    All the people after Gardner who claimed that Wicca was an intact ancient religion were just repeating what they had heard. There are some today who are still working hard to try and prove that Wicca is a pre-Christian survival (although they have an awfully tough bit of convincing to do now to prove it.)

    And isn't that a funny little thought?

    Anyway, as to the Satanism discussion, LaVeyan Satanism (which is usually what people refer to when they say Satanism, I think) isn't a religion. It's a philosophy, not even spirituality. As I said, Luciferian Satanism may be more iffy since I understand it can be a religion and does have deity - if you do a search on it I'm sure there's threads on it here at MW. And as Ben mentions, devil worship is another kettle of fish.

    Though it might be a good site for some, but it does not necessarily intend to be a p a g a n site. Last time I checked, a lot of the discussions revolved around defacing web sites and upsetting the general (internet) populace. One doesn't have to be involved in either to be p a g a n. But being involved in either does make you a person I wish to avoid. Thus I choose to avoid the entire site.
