Welcome to A Pagan Humanist, I am William and my blog provides a means for me to engage with a larger audience than my circle of friends and local events. With that, permit me to provide some background about me. I have been actively engaged as a Pagan for over 30 years. This means that I been part of and founded groups; worked with other Pagans; attended both private and public rituals; taught; drummed; danced; expressed my views; been interviewed by the media; held offices; attend and taught at festivals; counseled others; made mistakes within the community; changed my opinion over time; learned; been too stubborn to learn; read; donated time and money; and a whole plethora of other stuff. However, by no means am I an elder in a tradition or the community. Mostly, I think that I am an average Pagan who has been around long enough to be involved with some very interesting local groups, people, and events.
I have an academic tendency in my studies where I engage in religious philosophy within a Pagan context. I serve on the Board of Directors of Cherry Hill Seminary and the Conference on Current Pagan Studies. In part, this blog is my means of expressing those ideas that I think about, which includes Paganism as Piety (Єύσέβεia), Applied Ethics, Religion and Science, Greco-Roman Moralist, Philosophy, Aristotle, and Evolutionary Theory. Along with my academic tendencies, I provide Project and Program Development for local government and non-profits with some data and statistical analysis.
It is nice to see a site dedicated to the theological aspects of paganism. As we seek to become more accepted, I think sites like this that deal with some of the academic aspects can really help outsiders understand more about us and hopefully open up meaningful dialogs. Keep up the good work. ~Zoe
