Several people have requested that I post the summary of the core assertions of pagan belief from the talk as text for people to refer to. To reiterate them simply; 
  • We revere nature as a path to the divine and therefore require access to sacred natural spaces 
  • We revere death as a path to the divine and therefore reject any ideology that seeks to escape death
  • We revere our bodies as a gift from the gods - which were created according to divine will and are therefore neither incomplete nor imperfect - but must be maintained and kept healthy and strong 
  • We believe that the diversity of mankind is a manifestation of divine will, not a problem to be overcome - and that to approach the divine we must follow the example of our own ancestors, revering the sacred spaces of our own ancestral homelands in order to become closer to the gods of our ancestors
  • We must therefore live in accordance with our own ancestral laws and customs
My talk "Pagan Tradition in a Globalized Future" is also available on Odysee and several podcasting websites.
