1 thought on “Syncretism as Religion

  1. I read it today and thought, “Damn, I’ve been a syncretist all these years and just didn’t knot it!”

    But I’ve never experienced any outrage from other pagans when I’ve discussed how one religion has either built upon another or downright subsumed another, which is exactly what syncretism is in its rawest form, so I’m not sure what the problem is and I’m too afraid to ask!

    Maybe its the way I say it? Or that I don’t call it syncretism? Perhaps because I use archeological research to support my argument and I don’t express the common ground between religious and spiritual concepts as being a bad thing? Being pagan, to me, means being one with everything, so syncretism is just a natural order; who and how does one argue against that if they’re pagan?
