She gives no collaborating evidence for her claims. She reminds me of a
good tabloid -- lots of fantastic claims, no evidence.

Better books to start with would be:
"Crafting the Art of Magic" by Aidan Kelly
"The Pagan Religions of the British Isles"by Ronald Hutton
The first conclsusively proves that Gardner created Wicca, the second
explores what is known of the real Pre-Christian religions and in the final
chapter neatly explodes all the Wiccan claims of being Pre-Christian.
I should have known that you had have instantly debunked any evidence I
showed you. You function like a fundy! At others requests I am dropping
this topic here and now! As told another person, I enjoy discussing
difference of opinion but when the other person starts by telling me that my
believes are false, It only makes me pity them and does not expand anyones
May the God and Goddess bless with open eyes and an open heart.
