    Paganism can subsist upon a feeling of inherent holiness in everything in the natural universe. There are those who call themselves atheist pagans whose paganism consists in reverence of nature and celebration of its cycles. They don’t believe the Gods are real—they view Them as archetypes, metaphors, symbols—and they use pagan rituals to attain oneness with nature. The secular pagans usually celebrate the Wiccan Wheel of the Year (two solstices, two equinoxes and the four dates between them), recounting the birth of the God and the marriage of Goddess and God as symbols.

    I think the issue is over the definition of God. Most religious folk think of God as Divine and a deity that must be worshipped. Pagans, for the most part, see God in everything, pantheism, if you will. God is nothing special, because everything is God.

    Pagans just feel the need to live and express the Divinity that is inherent in everything and everyone. Basically it's really a law of love and peace.

    Most Pagans I know have a belife in the divine. I mean why worship nature if you do not think it is divine?

    Cheers,
