Difference Between Traditional Paganism And Abrahamic Monotheism by PAGAN9JA(m): 11:32pm On Aug 25, 2012

The Difference between Traditional Paganism & abrahamic monotheism:

Traditional Pagan Religion:

-has no man-founder . There are almost as many Traditional Religions in this world as there are tribes which is in the millions. yet Not ONE has been founded by man or has any form of proof as to that. They are the true religions as

-are the oldest religions. ALL Traditional Religions are as old as time immortal. there is no date attributed to them,. it is from the dawn of mankind.

-DO NOT proselytyse OR seek converts. you have to be BORN to a tribe to be Pagan. only reversion is possible for a person to his tribes/ethnicities traditional form of Paganism.

- are a form of Spiritual Science connected to the material Sciences. most Ancient Pagan Druids, Shamans and Priest were adept at healing, the sciences, chemistry(alchemy)_philosophy, astronomy, etc. unlike monotheistic religion
cannot exist without them.

-worship and influence the Supernatural forces through its various manifestations. e.g., its creations such as nature, animals, forces or through a carved stone idol that symbolises an aspect of a Spiritual force, i.e., for example an ido
Creation. the idols are themselves not worshipped but what they represent and act as an object to help concentrate prayers and Spiritual forces on. humans being materialistic in nature, cannot worship or feel REAL devotion to thin a
praying must see an image of a God in his mind if he really means his prayer. anyone be it christian or muslim claiming "undying love" to an invisible God is a LIAR!

-do not believe in religious wars, massacres or killings. The Pagans have never attacked anyone unless provoked. as in the case of the Quraysh Tribe of Arabia, when they were being forcefully converted by the sword, their people a
defiled, when in fact they were the FIRST to be there. they were kicked out of their own homes. such injustices can only account for Pagan religiouswars and even then very few such retailiations have taken place.

- Worship the Gods and dont indulge in man-worship.

- involved in nature conservation and do not consider man above other animals or plants. humans are just more intelligent than a Chimpanzee which is in turn more intelligent than a chicken.

- do not go by a book. Pagan religions are flexible and can change with time. more advanced form of Pagan religions such as Ancient Greek Religion, Ancient Egyptian Religion, Hinduism, Ifa-Orisha, etc have as a result a large num
books are merely guidelines which can be enhanced further with time. Pagan religions, however small, have a potential to grow if given the proper resources, support, research/universities and time.

abrahamic monotheism:

- have man-founders : monotheistic Judaism (abraham & then moses), christianity (jesus), islam (muhammad).

- are relatively new religions: judaism (around the birth year of abraham or if that is a lie made by moses, thant around the birth year of moses , i.e., 1391 B.C.), christianity ( 0 A.D.), islam (around 600-700 A.D.)

- Proselytyse and greedily seek converts to the extent of lies, deceit, bribe, murder, brain-washing, ransom, blackmail, torture, ra.pe, etc. .
Judaism however being heavily inflienced from the Pagan days when it was surrounded by Pagan religions on all sides, is relatively lax when seeking converts, however the ydo convert other faiths, e.g., the recent exodus of Naga/K
North-Eastern India and Burma, into Israel to swell their ranks.other examples include, African/ Ethiopian Jews, Igbo Jews, Ijews, etc. .

- worship thin air. do not feel any REAL devotion to the Forces as a result and cant influence the ciurse of actions. some are hyppocrites and resort to keeping man-idols of jesus and other prophets/saints etc, or worship a big block o
disrepecting it and destroying its interior. and thn they claim that they are not idol-worhsippers and idol-worshippers must be killed or massacred.

-believe in religious wars such as crusades or jihads, like to slaughter and kill people of other (usually Pagan beliefs), destroy, loot, plunder, sometimes as decreed by their God-prophet. as in the quraan where it is mentioned to ensl

-heavy indulgence in man-worship , especially christians who believe in a son-of-God. muslims and jews and ofcourse christians also indirectly worship man through their man-superority teachings , etc. islamic religion dictates that w
property, etc., must cover their bodies while men can do what they want, only men can marry form other religions, men can practice polygamy and have many wives while women are stuck with or sometimes have to share the same
muta'ah , i.e., temporary wives/sex-slaves, separate prayer places, etc.

-women cant be priests or have religious roles in most cases.

-have no consideration for nature and treat animals as second-class citizens of the world. also like unnecessary slaughter such as during bakr-id. all consider animals as with lesser souls and have no respect for nature.

- go strictly by useless man-written books and are not open to change, progress and development.

-disregard the sciences, e.g., christians used to believe upon pain of death that the Earth is flat and the Sun and other planets revolve around the Earth (again abrahamic man-superiority complex), while the Pagans had already know
and other planets revolve around the Sun. famous scientist like Galileo and Copernicus nearly lost their lives at the hands of the church for saying otherwise. Some of us even calculated the Earth's diameter and circumference and k
planets in our Solar System without using telescopes. E.g., every major Roman/Greek/Hindu/Chinese God was connected with a planet. E.g., Mars - Hermes, the God of War (The Red Planet).
