How do larpagans cope with the fact that all connection to the esoteric mysteries of their religion died out over a thousand years ago? There's no one alive who can initiate them into the mysteries, all they have are some of the exoteric aspects of the religion from sagas and poems with no esoteric core.

    Just do what the SS did and be a "God-believer" who identifies God with the laws of nature.

    It's quite simple, initiate yourself by consuming psychedelics and speaking to the Gods and spirits directly.

      It's nice to meet an honest pagan, there aren't many of those around, most of them pretend "uh actually the gods aren't REAL they're just archetypes of abstract concepts something something aryan spirit"

        So no different to liberal Christianity then.

          of course, fake Christians are just as fake as fake pagans, a person who says "oh I'm a policeman, but I don't work for the city and I don't wear a badge, I just shoot people and steal TVs" isn't a policeman, it's a robber, and a person who says "I'm a Christian, but I don't believe Christ is the son of God, who died and was resurrected, and gays can get married and it's ok for mothers to murder their unborn children" isn't a Christian, they're a satanist
          of course it's much harder to be a real pagan because most pagan traditions are lost whereas Christian tradition has been copiously written down and reproduced at a borderline absurd rate, so there's really no excuse for the so-called Christians who think it's alright to let the government cut their kids' wieners off

        Any "pagan" who says the Gods are blind, deaf, and dumb, is a moron. The Gods speak to any who ask for audience.

    No different to Christianity where the early documents are lost and most of the core dogma was stuff slapped on centuries later, like Trinitarianism. The early church would be unrecognizable to a modern Christian.

      that's because Gnostic theology is true Christianity.

      earliest manuscripts are dated to the 100s AD, and trinitarian theology is found in the Old Testament, try again

      if you're so concerned about "da jooz" why don't you try joining one of the two remaining Aryan religions - Zoroastrianism or Hinduism? at least those have fairly consistent continuity of rite for the past 2000 years unlike german fairy stories that had to be collated by the Brothers Grimm centuries after they'd lost all significance

        Someone made a thread about that a few months ago and all the replies told the OP that it'd be moronic because they're not Iranian. But that didn't stop Christians from adopting a Hebrew ethno-religion.

          the actual reason is that Zoroastrians don't want foreign converts and won't allow foreign converts
          and indians are too brown so no self-respecting neonazi (read: larpagan) will ever think of converting to vedism

            Why don't they? Seems weird to keep people from converting to your dying religion.

            they're incredibly autistic about their ethnoreligion being exclusive to their ethnicity in a way that the most talmudic of israelites would find neurotic, this is actually historically evident in the way Persians treated their suzerains after conquering kingdoms, they basically invented "religious tolerance" by virtue of the fact they didn't care what any non-Mede believed, since only the elite strata of Medes were superior enough to recognize Hormuzd in the first place, so you find Babylonian Marduk-worship and Hebrew Yahwism, and Cappadocian Greek polytheism all existing within their conquered lands in spite of the fact that the Persians didn't believe any of these gods existed

          And that's exactly why Pagans are not Christians in the first place.

    Because the Gods are real, then it won't simply disappear if people stop offering sacrifice and practicing the rites.
    The esoteric mysteries were invented by humans based on their experience with the divine, the myths themselves are not holy, merely a human intrepretation of the holy, hence to lose knowledge of the myths and rites is a massive shame, but it is entirely a human loss, the metaphysical reality remains exactly the same, and thus can be worshiped just like the early humans worshiped it by inventing every single rite and myth themselves.

    If Christians really believe that the legitimacy of a faith is exclusively measured on how accurately well you can recreate what others would have done and believed in the past, then i don't know what you tell you, that is literally the definition of a LARP.

    The traditions came about somehow the first time around. They will re-emerge in that same organic manner.

    99.9% of e-pagans do not even know of or care about the mysteries at all, it isn't a part of their pseudo-religious practices in any way. They just want to give cheese to idols, as if that's all we need to do to solve our spiritual malaise. For them paganism is all aesthetics, no substance.

    >Implying Paganism was EVER about a uniform, set in stone collection of rites, myths and traditions

    >Implying every single tribe wouldn't have their own unique spin on spirituality, and implying it wouldn't keep changing over time all the time

    You christian larpers will never understand what a real, organic connection to the divine is while you continue believing that in strictly following the inventions of your fellow man will somehow lead you closer to the divine.

    They would say that it is an inevitable consequence of cyclical time, where the golden age of spirit is lost over the ages until we enter the last age of materialism, and the cycle begins anew. If they are Germanic pagans they would probably say this was all destined to happen as foretold by the völva to Odin in the Völuspá, and that we live in the Wolf Age full of criminals, degenerates, and where the metaphysical ties between Gods and men are severed as a prerequisite to Ragnarök. It is sad but also simply Fate.

    Most pagans aren't into mystery cults, so they don't care. I've never met anyone who would try to revive, say, Mithraism or the cult of Isis (though those people probably exist somewhere).
