"fear is just a four letter faylior"
Many people associate the wicken religon to be associated with sacrificing virgins and casting spells but trully wicken is just a form of apritiating the earth. and i hope that ppl will understand that because ppl fear what they dont understand.

i appreciate the earth, does this make me wicken?
or do you mean you worship the earth.. what separates your religion from average joe who likes sunsets and the smell of fresh cut grass.
appreciation of something natural does not constitute a religion on it's own.

i'm not afraid of wicken, but i don't know any more than what you've just said. please tell me more about it, so i dont go on thinking that it is simply 'appreciating the earth' because hippies covered that one already

First problem is that the word is spelled "Wicca". You may not find anything on the religion if you look up the word wicken.

Second problem is a problem that the religion has imposed upon itself for whatever reason. The fact that the practitioners of Wicca refer to themselves as witches has linked the religion to satanic worship, which really isn't true. There may be some instances of people using the religion for evil purposes but any religion has that problem, the Inquisition comes to mind.

The religion is based on the worship of a god/goddess having both male and female features. The witches do not so much worship the earth as much as have a deep respect for the environment and believe that all things on earth are linked through their energy and their connection with everything else.

I do not practice the religion myself but was curious myself and decided to look it up to research it a bit.

if you are interested in learning more, i found the information on the wikipedia website under WICCA
