Hi Amphian. Imaging running into you here! ;-)I see we're not the only ones from the Mathematical Puzzles board. I wonder what the correlation is. ;-)Then, I'm left trying to explain the difference between "Wiccan", "Pagan", and "Witch", and why I am only two of the three.For those of us not overly familiar with things Pagan, do you think you could possibly explain the differences, as you see them?I use the word "Witch" to mean someone who practices magic. They may see a magic spell as a petition to a god or goddess or they may see it as a manipulation of energy that requires no deity. They may or may not be pagans or Wiccans or both.I use the word "Pagan" to mean someone who believes that nature is sacred. They may believe that sacredness takes the form of gods and goddesses or that it is the universe itself or life or "The Force". They may or may not be witches or Wiccans or both.I use "Wiccan" to mean a follower of one of a class of pagan religions descended from the one founded by Gerald Gardner. Wiccans are pagan witches, but not all pagan witches are Wiccans. (Just like all Lutherans are Christian, but not all Christians are Lutheran.)By now, you should be thoroughly confused. ;-) (why do I have the feeling that this may start a rather long thread?)Because if you polled X people, you'd get X definitions - some of them contradictory.Amphian
