What does Pagan mean to a Wiccan?

Paganism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The word seems pretty much open to interpretation.

You seem awfully disappointed and mad, Gary. Perhaps you should convert to Wiccanism/Paganism. Nah, they have no room for you there.

Most Wiccans consider themselves Pagan. Nowhere near all Pagans are Wiccan. But there is a set of traits that most Pagans agree on that makes one Pagan.

That statement is based on the idea that our unconscious desires have an effect on our lives.

Generally, most Pagans believe in a pantheon of gods, revere nature, and believe in things like karma and reincarnation.



Also, most believe in "subtle forces", meaning things like psychic abilities, magick, divination, spirit contact, and such.

And you get that information from? I've read enough of your posts to know any information therein is rather suspect. I'd rather have an outside source.

Wiccan:Pagan as Lutheran:Christian



When you've had a chance to think about that for a bit, feel free to ask any more intelligent questions.

But I have a pretty good idea of what a "Christian" is. But as indicated by the Wiki, "pagan" can mean a lot of things to many different people. As indicated by...

pagan - Definition of pagan at Your Dictionary

or

Definition of Paganism

It doesn't seem to mean anything specific. So as soon as you can give an intelligent answer, you'll see that my question is an honest inquiry.
