    “It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.” Douglas Adams

    Dear Moonsmith, I hold beliefs, rather strong beliefs actually, but never felt any need to conform to the beliefs of other Pagans before publicly identifying as a Pagan. There are beliefs in Paganism but I've never felt Paganism is primarily about beliefs. I'd be suspicious of anyone, postulant or not, who appeared to be trying to conform to my thinking in order to be recognised as something or other. Somebody who wanted to argue with me would probably be much more interesting. In presentations on Paganism, I sometimes joke that we tend to get uncomfortable if we appear to agree with each other too much. While intended as humour, I think there's also an underlying truth there. BB, John Macintyre

    I don't think belief in aliens or not is really dictated by any Pagan path that I am aware of. Personally, I go with the evidence as much as possible. Exploration of our own solar system and new discoveries of exoplanets suggest that conditions suitable for life might actually be quite common. So with around 300 billion stars in our our galaxy alone and around the same number of galaxies, I really don't see how alien life cannot exist. There is not one shred of evidence that they have ever been here though. And I get a bit fed up when people point at the achievements of our ancestors and say it must have been aliens that did it. If stonehenge was made of some amazing, unknowable alloy....... or the pyramids contained details maps of the heavens, maybe.

    I usually avoid this sort of conversation, because it's a wolf. :rolleyes: Yeah, I know - hackneyed, or what? Hence avoiding these conversations. When I read Facebook, it seems like every teenager has a spirit animal or power animal or whatever the latest stolen term is slapped onto a concept that grows increasingly vague. Anyway, mine's a fetch. Seems suitable as my ancestors probably were Anglo Saxon, rather than Ojibway. :D *sigh* I wanted an otter or a badger or a heron. Instead, I get a wolf. <hangs head in shame>

    Badgers. Found out unexpectedly there's a family connection and I think they're amazing creatures.
