I was having an interesting discussion in another thread with another member of the site not too long ago in regards to these sorts of things. I decided to create a new thread, because as Nadala pointed out to me, we we're debating in the wrong thread. What are your thoughts on Wicca, witches and magic in real, modern life? I have absolutely no doubt that there would be a great deal of people around the world who genuinely believe in the existance of magic, and who perhaps believe themselves to be witches. A cool 1.4 million in North America alone, so I'm told. Im not going to hold a grudge against anyone for their beliefs (just so long as they don't start trying to curse me by putting some sort of potion into my drink or something). But what's your opinion? Do you believe that magic is real? Can it influence or even control the real world? Can it perhaps do something crazy like open a portal from here to hell or something? Do witches really hold any power at all? Or is it that they are constantly looking (and therefore finding) evidence that their magic is real? Cast your two cents. Im quite interested in this.
