Ambos¿Al diablo le gusta ser diablo?Ambos13 hours ago in Philosophical More Like This
Montarse en sus espantosos pantalones rojos y pulir sus enormes cuernos como de mármol lacerado.
¿Al diablo le gustará saber que hay quien lo espanta sobre mesas de billar o frente a futbolistas con más hongos que sentido común?
¿Se paseara el tanteando el espacio de su vejez frente a un espejo que derrite con sus ojos?
¿Al amor le gustara ser amor?
Vestirse de no se que cosa montado en no se que bestia con aroma a flores suaves
¿ le gustara encontrarse en los olores, en los cerebros de los predecibles, de los condenados, de los apáticos, de los avaros, de los intranquilos, de los infieles, de los inútiles?
Por si gustan o no, el mote los considera cualquier tipo intercambiando señas frente a un espejo, frente a unas pestañas rizadas, frente a un público, frente a un yeso de forma lateral... El hecho es que ambos odian a los humanos.
Hellenic Magical PrimerThe following is a working magical primer for Hellenic Polytheists. It is synthesized from a combination of the core religious ritual I use, and elements of magical operations that I've seen written in half a dozen books and articles. The circle concept is a simplified version of circumambulation (see PGM IV.2970-2) and the Ritual of the Heptagram is a simplified version of the "vocalic elements" from Hermetic Magic by Stephen Flowers (see PGM XII. 824-841).Hellenic Magical Primer6 hours ago in Philosophical More Like This
Though I prefer to do my rituals in English, I've included a few Greek words to be used in ritual for those who prefer to use them in that fashion.
Hellenic Magical Primer
The Circle :
Trace a circle with a preferred gesture to create a magic ward
I circle round this sacred space
Separating the divine from the disgrace
Let my words and deeds agree
As it is said, so must it be
The Ritual of the Heptagram:
Perform this operation to consecrate the space, counter-clockwise,
Through the four terrestrial elements, as well

Why I left the faith: bad questionsPart 4Why I left the faith: bad questions4 hours ago in Philosophical More Like This
Where I left off, I had suffered terribly at the hands of anti-gay Christians, but I had not lost my faith. I understood that, while god was supposedly perfect, Christians would fail to exhibit the same perfection. This was not an impediment to belief... it was obvious. However, various Christians' demands that I reach their theological conclusions and my inability to do so did raise some questions. How could I know for sure what is true? It was a huge question, and I was eager to search for answers.
The first possible answer that I tackled was the assumption that Truth would be revealed in scripture, and whatever was most Scriptural was most True. My recent experiences had pulverized this idea thoroughly. Various different pastors, Christians, and myself had all studied scripture and come to different conclusions. Indeed, over the years, many people have interpreted scriptures in many different ways. Modern Christianity bears very little resemblance to ancient
The Greek Alphabet OracleThe Greek Alphabet Oracle, also called The Olympian Oracle, is a technique derived from inscriptions found in the city of Olympos, in Lycia. It was a form of cleromancy or "sortilege" used by both the Greeks and Romans up until Christian conversion.The Greek Alphabet Oracle22 hours ago in Philosophical More Like This
There are three main variations:
1. Psêphoi - Tiles or potsherds painted or inscribed with the Greek alphabet
2. Astragaloi - Four sided knucklebones (from sheep)
3. Cuboi - Five six-sided dice (d6's for the D&D players out there)
The first variation can be made in any of the ways that Norse Runes are made, including with stone, clay, or wood. It's pretty standard, but may not vibe with certain readers.
The second variation is hard to come by, unless you want synthetic knucklebones, and requires you to use a calculation system that looks like this:
1 (Monas), 3 (Trias), 4 (Tetras), and 6 (Hexas)
If you're interested in that system, the calculations are on the website provided above.
The third variation is not only my personal favorite,
