Always wondered what it would be like if a real pagan (oh, let's say from
ancient Greece) met a New Ager type pagan. I'm convinced the lack of
relativistic thinking, insistance on a sense of "right" and "wrong" would be
something that would "produce nagative vibes" in the NA version. Not to
mention the passionate belief.
(Ancient Rome had its relativists, too. After all, Euhemerus was writing
about and invented the concept of "euhemerization.") ---djb.
