Busy, but not ready to “orphan” this blog

Gods know that I haven’t been on this blog often in the past year. Covid-19 and college classes taken online have contributed to a lot of stress which I didn’t wish to have interfere with this blog’s focus on the Theoi and various thoughts on Hellenic Polytheism. However, I have come to realize that I…

“With Liberty and Justice for All”

These words are the final words of the Pledge of Allegiance in the United States — and are aspirational instead of a statement of something that exists in the real world.

In both of these classes I have run across definitions for the words “myth” and “religion” that I actually really like. The…
