Well my wife was born and raised Catholic while i attended catholic schools in Ireland I was raised as a 75th direct generation druid. Even though our family and our poly household has its foundation based in druidry. We own a farm in Southern New Hampshire and we are about 65% total self containing, we rase our own veggies, our own beef all grass fed, raise our own wool as well as cashmere, all our fensing is solar and our home will be totally off the grid in the next 3 years. We live within our means and we live one with the earth not of the earth.

LOL.............

So you believe in the chaos theroy well you have that right, personally that doesnt work for us or our knowledge, wisdom as we know it. The main difference between us and other is we know not that we believe but we actually know.............Where most other forms of belief systems are based on faith ours is based on knowing.....

Chaos theory actually isn't the main focus of Dicordianism, there's quite a bit more to it. As for the rest of what you were saying, what? I'm having a hard time deciphering it...

I am in line with this, Keltic. I use the ancient Greek term gnosis. Knowing (gnosis) brings wisdom (sophia).

I didn't realize there were so many pagans around. What does being pagan mean in practical terms these days? I still have visions of people prancing around forests half naked searching for mushrooms, but I sure it's more about a connection with nature.

My daughter says my religion is "cut and paste". I'm interested in new age philosophies but I pretty much "cut and paste" that which resonates for me and leave the rest behind. I must do some pagan research after all I believe "Sage" is quite a pagan name to call oneself.
