Why cant a new pagan religion be made?

Why can’t a new pagan religion be made? I think the idea that religions are only legitimate if they were made up before the enlightenment/scientific revolution is kind of silly because it’s basically just proving atheists right. I think saying that neo-pagans can be nothing but larpers casts a huge shadow of doubt over all religions and belief systems, because unless magic, miracles and gods existed 2000 yr ago but not now for some reason, all major religions are just larp sessions that only derive legitimacy from being old and their origins not being able to be scientifically scrutinized. I see a ton of Christians accuse neo-pagans of LARP and to me they just sound like atheists. It would be way smarter to call neo-pagans demon worshippers or something.

    The religion you're looking for is Thelema.

      Short answer is yes. Long answer is that you would have to have a foundation to build on and that usually draws on historical sources and some degree of speculation. Plus a lot of work in not only archeology, but linguistics, social studies, and other fields. If you want to do this right, then it is possible.

      Get out. We're full. We don't need immigrants thank you very much.
      So yeah...it's not a very encouraging situation but maybe someone can make the best of it.

    If you’re looking for real Disclosure, check out this: https://m.youtube.com/@CosmicAgency

    The main woman, Gosia, reports eventually being allowed on the spaceship.

    Are you familiar with Heaven’s Gate or NXIVM? That’s the problem with new-age religions. Sex cult here, suicide cult there, etc.

    Look at Islam… Or even Christianity, for that matter. Jihad here, burn the library of Alexandria there, burn the witch here, Inquisition there.

    If you’re going to create a religion, you need evidence.

    Nothing in principle, I think it is more of an issue of credibility.

      In part is because paganism is not a universalist belief system. It's unique to its own culture. Germanic paganism is not the same as Greek/Roman paganism, and so and so forth. And getting into the even greater nitty gritty different tribes could have had differing versions of the Gods, meanings, stories, etc. The Germanic creation myth involving Tiwisko is certainly different from the Norse version with Ash and Elm as the first humans.

      Reconstructionism has its values, but should never be restrictive. New things are always born up from reincarnation, and what became tradition was once new and different many thousands of years ago. This isn't to say "just do whatever," absolutely not, but to be closed off to new practices is stagnation.

      This too. The powers that be are absolutely trying to subvert the rise of paganism with liberal beliefs. Paganism is inherently folkish in nature and they don't want that.

    Because in the age of the internet when people already know the names of thousands of gods, its hard to make a new one organically

      >thousands of gods
      most of them lack existing cults however. contact one you wish to venerate and discover the ceremonial practices and forms of organization they wish to see in the world.

    Because we know very little about a lot of pagan religions after they were mostly wiped out by Rome and Christianity. The stuff we do know is from a Roman view or a Christian one, both outside perspectives looking in. So a lot of the rituals pagans do now are reconstructions, which in my opinion isn't a bad thing.

        Why do you people always act like basic level research into primary sources is impossible?
        If you want to know if the Quran is divine or not you can go and read the thing, if you want to know if Joseph Smith was a conman you can read the court records from when he was on trial in New York state.
        It isn't a big guessing game you just have to be halfway literate and have a basic level of intellectual curiosity.

    It can but to create your own religion properly you need to reach a certain grade of attainment

    >Why can’t a new pagan religion be made?
    Pagan gods are representations of real power either in nature(vanis) or humanity(aesir). There are also giants for forces that are neutral, they don't actively create or sustain live or they can also destroy it(like fire, for example). If you would do a new pagan religion it would still tell, show and represent the same. Reality. So if you would create one you would probably end up with exactly the same in the end. The cultural aspect of it is new all the time anyways. It's always changing I mean. There will never be the exact same ppl doing the exact same ritual. Also in a way this would just divide the pagans into a group of the old and a group of the new

    Because the abrahamics in whatever form they take, will come and shit up the whole thing. Some moron yearning for power will take their sullied gold and convert his people, burning their history and truths. Only so that morons bloodline can remain in power for the next few centuries. It happened before and it will probably happen again.
    Most of us, euros at least, had our past taken from us by the hand of abrahamics. The same people that will take a covid jab and burn an innocent woman in the woods picking herbs.

    The LARP-thing isn’t the fact they are worshiping pagan gods or doing cerimonies, the LARP-aspect of neo-paganism is purely the nationalistic aspect of it and identifying with pagans years ago who have nothing to do with you as being part of the same group as you just because you decided to worship their gods. Basically the whole ‘we are the daughters of witches you didn’t burn’ aspect. Worship any god you feel like worshiping, but be honest and don’t say anything like ‘go home white man’ (your home is purely what you were raised in, not what ancestors thousands of years back did, Norse gods are just as foreign to a Swedish Christian as they are to a Nigerian but actually even more so since Nigerian gods will share the same archetypical forces as Norse ones), just accept that you aren’t following an old tradition but a new one and don’t shoehorn yourself into an identity that has stopped existed years ago but accept that you are forming a new identity that is INSPIRED but not part of the old identity

    Astratu isn’t with capital letter isn’t Norse paganism, it’s a new religion inspired by Norse paganism. Yes I know astratu is an old Norse phase, but old Norse men wouldn’t have called themselves Astratu or identified with being part of a unified religion such as astratu since faiths and religions are to different things and there needs to be a unified philosophy and central inherit idea for a religion to be a religion, old pagans generally followed their local faiths not a religion and as you can seen see like with neo-platonicism many religions spring out of that faith but neo-platonicism isn’t the same as older Greek religion despite being both paganism and worshiping the same old gods

      Like if someone wants to be a pagan then I don’t see why people feel the need to worship the gods of their ancestors, maybe you would be more in line with the gods of another culture

    Abrahamic religions worship a lower entity thats conflated with the creator of the universe. He is on the same level as other mid level entities (ethno tribal gods) and has demanded exclusive worship out of jealousy and hatred., He has ruled the old aeon. In the new, we must find the true cosmic creator, which is universal consciousness. The true universal spirit also encompasses a neglected divine feminine principal as well as a divine masculine. The archon was so jealous he even killed his wife, Ashera. In the new age, we will see the resurrection of goddess.

    The fact is the Abrahamic age served a purpose. Itsmight be part of our evolution. We don't want to go backwards but forward. We are leaving an age of ignorance and entering one of true awakening. We lived under a totalitarian archon, who was based in fear. In the new age of Aquarias, we will discover universal love and compassion. We don't want to make the mistake of looking backwards, We should look forward.
