Afterlife? Pagans believe in the here and now: “Wicca, the most widely known form of Paganism, encompasses many traditions. But there are also Hellenes, Romans, Kemetics, Norse and Germanic Heathens (often referred to as ‘satr’), Druids, and others; all of us follow, in one form or another, the customs and traditions of our ancestors.
There are not many of us by the standards of the ‘great’ religions, but I like to think that we have some small voice in ideas about what happens to us after death.
Christians focus on the afterlife, while Pagans have had their eyes set on the here and now. For a Christian, this life is only preparation for another. It is unsurprising, then, that they should focus on questions relating to the afterlife, but Christians often forget that this kind of discourse is meaningless to non-Christians.”
