We do believe that the human is a fine balance between spirit and
materia and that it is not always evolutive to separate that two
aspects. We are trying to give some higher profile to tihs
discussion, that's all! :)

Two points in regard to this, and to counter the obvious arguments:
1. I do not believe that the modern version of the Slavic pagan/native
religion is the same as the medieval... in the same was as I do not
believe that modern Catholicism is the same as medieval Catholicism.
Entirely different beasts.
2. Current religious practice is NOT the same as re-enactment of ancient
religious practice, however similar the two may be (and I'm thinking
here in particular of that Czech group, where joining requires adoption
of an "ancient Slavic name" - sound familiar, anyone? - and the fact
that some people/speakers in the photographs of the Ukrainian meeting
were in "folk dress").
