For me, a large part of paganism is the openness to the unknown. Exploring the world believing in endless possibilities. Think of what you may learn if you stop saying “That’s impossible!” and start asking “What if?”
The study of the unknown has always been relegated to the fringes of science. In the past, people faced censure by the church, imprisonment and even death. Today those brave enough to delve into this field are regarded as eccentric at best and crackpots at worst. That is until they’re proven right. It takes a lot of courage and conviction to be able to withstand the onslaught of disparagers.
"Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe.
Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat,
and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet.
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.”
