It's a learning experience. Wicca is an experiential religion. What I experience and learn allows me to evaluate what I want from the experience. Basically I get the opportunity to decide for myself what works for me and what doesn't, what to believe and what not to, and the best part is that nobody else gets to judge me for it.
Stripped of its skirting and evasive prolixity, that’s a convoluted way of saying that you hold those things to be knowledge, as the term was defined earlier. You speak of “learning,” “experience” and “belief,” each of which implies knowledge that is somehow useful or practical. It’s a trivial matter to dismantle the alleged “evidence” that purports to validate these pursuits, negating any claims to knowledge in this sphere. That’s why the orthodoxy rejects them, not because the orthodoxy is run by stuffy and narrow-minded old conservatives.

As for judging, I for one am hardly impressed by the intellectual acuity of people who freely and fully buy into, as some kind of truth, such largely evidence-free feel-good notions mainly because they provide thrills of various kinds, not least among which are pretensions of profundity. I’m even less impressed by their singular ability and slippery inventiveness when it comes to avoiding the strong likelihood that such beliefs are baloney.

But hey, it’s your life and your choice.

i have been chewing my desk in agitation and trying not to add my 2 cents worth.
but, i cant keep quiet anymore.
i, too, have dabbled in wicca back in the day. there are very specific 'energies' and magick involved with the different genders. very much specifically around the female menstrual cycle, the reproductive cycle, the male erection, and so on and so forth.
no, christina, my poor human, how the flying freck do prescribe to be wiccan, when you have lopped off you man-bits, and claim to be female in spirit, yet have to take hormones to remain female in voice and appearance. and i know, that when you stop taking your hormones, your voice will go gruff, and your jaw will square out.
paganism is cool simply because its old, and carries about as much clout in spongebob squarepants. and while you have shirked a one deity religion, now you follow a (at least) two deity 'religion'. the god and the goddess. and while i know, most covens wont allow a sex-change individual like you, there might be exceptions. and i cant help thinking that you are basically pikking out on your own, without a coven. taken, allso, that you have altered your body the 'goddess' gave you, so drastically, and now have take chemicals to keep yourself female, i cannot imagine that being kosher with the wiccan crede.
my other ass-itch, is, you come here, guns blazing about trangender what-what. eventhough we all have coddling you, and saying, basically, you could wear a glistening pink vagina on your head for all we care, you still come and peddle your random kak here, while we obviously think you are a nut-case. either you are dim-witted as your (bottle) blond hair belies, or simply a troll.

in any instance, paganism is beautifull, allbeit complete el-crappo of note. i love partaking in yule and the other solstices, and drink mead as eagerly as any witch or warlock. and meditate myself into oblivion. but it's still wishfull thinking to think that human fate is controlled by god/allah/gaia/the kraken.

one last thing. if, you are not a troll, and have something other than pagan hogwash and transgender issues to contribute to, then please do just that. maybe partake in our religious debates. without wanting to draw a pentacle and light a candle.

rant over. dankie.

You are wrong. I judge you. And it ain't looking good.

Perhaps what you meant to say was you don't care how others judge you.
