6) Mid 18th century tale, "The Adventures of the Sons of Thorolb" has a
passage saying, "it was custom then to hold a meeting once in every 3rd year
on Buaile na Greine (fold of the sun) on the south side of Slieve Callan, to
make sacrifice and adoration to the sun upon an altar."
What a Xtian in the 18th century about someone elses religion is never the
most accurate account of an event. Witches were burned for their beliefs at
that time and I believe that this was also a part of the pursecution going
on at the time. No calender of any account can show all the facts as they
occurred. I do not hold Christians superior in knowledge to pagans, therfore
I feel that your readings are biased in that respect. No disrespect to you
or Christianity but when someone makes an assumption of something they only
read about in a book it irks me a bit. I read books on various subjects but
try not to pass on anything I haven't confirmed by other means. Most
Christians have always held the belief that other religions are the same as
theirs in perception. This simply is not so. Having many symbols only aids
in ones belief. Earth based religion has many different perceptions that
don't coincide with that of others.
By the way, I state what I am saying because I know from experience of what
I speak...that is my Pagan religions belief system. I am not a Christian.
