Anonymous asked: I'm tried of people assuming that Deities can only exist in the lore or in historical texts and if someone has an expirence outside of that information, not only is that person clearly wrong, but the person saying they are wrong believes they are "right enough" to tell a Deity how they should behave. This goes for all ENTITIES, Angels, Demons, Fae, Spirits, Ghost. Stop shoving your humanity into non-corporals.
just go right ahead and appropriate all you want from cultures and claim it has nothing to do with them, though. I’m sure that’ll work out for you.
also, this idea is inherently toxic. this is the kind of thing non-NA people apply to worshiping gods from closed cultures. hint: don’t do this, you’re a shitlord.
Father forbid ideas spread and develop over time, as they always have. Yes, it would be much better that all things stagnate. No idea should ever be developed upon further or changed. Once it is created, it must remain unchanged for the rest of eternity, and can only be appreciated and experienced by the ones who created it.
People with mindsets like the one’s running the LDW blog are the one’s who are toxic.
Heaven Forbid, people exercise their own personal research, develop their own hypothesis and data and desire to experiment w/ their own theories and personal experiences.
Heaven Forbid, people learn how to put a god damn book down and experience the world for themselves. Heaven Forbid, people desire to experience relationships w/ others on any kind of physical and/or intellectual level.
Heaven Forbid, people want to grow spiritually on any kind of level.
Heaven Forbid, people choose to seek out their own spiritual enlightenment and intellectual growth.
Yes, let us all condemn and torment people who can think outside the pieces of paper written by the people who got to experience the world for themselves—-because, heaven fucking forbid, anyone else be allowed to do the fucking same.
Ironic use of Kesha, LDW. She wouldn’t agree w/ your mentality. She’s spiritually open-minded herself and people like that, according to you, are toxic. Get the hell out.
Yeah, if a god from a closed culture comes to me I’m not going to turn them away because human political spats.
Anyone who thinks otherwise can fuck the fuck off.
Research is good. Knowing your sources is good. Knowing the significance of traditions and how and why they came about is good.
But cultures blend, and some religions went to great lengths to spread their traditions and practices.
Deities/spirits are NOT static, they don’t care if someone is from the religion they feature in or not. If they want you, they are going to have you.
Deities/spirits also grow and change beyond whats written in thousands of years old text.
Said texts which had who knows how many years of oral tradition before being written down, changed, exagerated, translated, re translated, mistranslated, edited, ect and have no historical evidence of ever even happening.
Take the damn stick out of your asses.
