So I just got BAWWWWW blocked by someone after I pointed out misinformation in a comment on this thread. [link]

:| So first, you post misinformation about 'witch' holidays. There are no 'witch' holidays. There's millions of people who call themselves witches, and there's absolutely no set holidays for any of them. There's the Wheel of the Year, sure, but that's mostly Wiccan and there's no requirement for any 'witch' to follow it.

Then, you for some reason have misidentified the differences between a pentagram(a five-pointed star with or without a circle written on paper) and a pentacle(the same but as a charm or physical object), and then claimed pentagrams are devil-stars. No, devil stars are inverted pentagrams/cles. That's common knowledge in the occult and even general religious studies.

I could even understand if you thought pentacles were the ones with circles and that pentagrams without. That's a common error, and could even be considered debatable. But no, you brought up something entirely obscure which has no basis in reality whatsoever.

Next, you attempt to justify your responses with two bogus websites(one of which claiming Wicca and witchcraft are the same thing AND claiming that male witches call themselves 'warlocks', which is almost never the case. You also believe Wikipedia is a reliable resource when no serious organization will take it as such) and then hint that I'm uneducated.

Of course, when I point that out, you of course assert your age(which frankly may be a lie) and brag about how many books you've read, then act all nice and tell me to have a 'great day' to make yourself look mature.

I point out that age has nothing to do with anything and that you're simply misinformed, and for god knows what reason you start talking about some fucking spiritual journey and once again try to make yourself seem mature.

This isn't about some 'spiritual journey'. How did you even bring that up? Where is your sense?

This is about general misinformation. Nothing magical, spiritual or otherwise about it :|

And then, finally, you block me because you don't want anyone to see you being wrong.

tl;dr I don't care what your age is. Your behavior is infantile, and you don't even have basic knowledge. Shut up.

What an idiot she is. Acting all high and mighty, just because she's older??? What the fuck?! :ohmygod: And let's not forget her "lovely" attempt to shut you up: "I have been since I was 12, I'm 35. :D Have a great day!" It's like she's saying that whoever is younger than her have no say in this matter! Oh wow. Just wow.

The reason wikipedia is looked down upon so much is because most people have no idea how to use it.
Find something on wikipedia, go to the references. Look at the references. Quote references if they're good. You now have sources which are acceptable.

I think the person said witch when they meant to say Pagan, but even then, they don't seem to entirely understand the concept they're arguing to know about.

Also, you weren't entirely right, either, at least in that there are other interpretations of the definitions. The differentiation between pentagrams being written and pentacles being charms is one, but there are others. Examples are when a pentacle is pointed upwards and a pentagram is pointed downward, or that a pentagram is just a pentacle pointed either way when a circle is added, or vice versa. Also, in case you care for future reference to show off useless knowledge like I sometimes do, the symbol of Satanism is something else entirely, called a Sigil of Baphomet, which was made by LaVey, at least partly with the intent to mock Christian ideas about symbology. The problem is that it's subjective depending on the system(s) one learns from and follow(s), and there's no hard proof that any of them are the only right or wrong way to interpret them, outside of the pentagram not being a symbol of the devil.

As for the rest, when someone uses faulty information in an argument and makes pointless assertions that have no relevance to the argument at hand, and then block the debator, I count it as a win, so congratulations.

Wikipedia isn't as bad a source as some make it out to be. It's usually good for general information and can sometimes get you to scholarly references.

Hmmm well the holidays may vary depending on what path you follow the wheel of the year is basically an outline but for example the greco/roman festivals will not be the same as an egyptian pantheon follower ect who will have there own festivals.

Yes, I know. I tried to explain this to the woman, but she dodged the point I was trying to make entirely.

And even then, that's with Pagan witches. A witch can be of any religion or none at all.

"Pagan" communities are full of even more dumb than other religious communities (which is an expected problem when many of these 'religions' are only a few decades old and people are still mostly making stuff up as they go along.) The only 'pagan' communities that don't consistently make me angry or make me laugh are the ones dedicated to Norse gods but even those communities seem to be strangely full of Nazis (like actual National Socialists) for some reason.

The Nazi-Pagan connection makes sense because Nazism is all about loving and bonding with people/concepts of your own heritage, and loads of European Nazis express that by "going back" to their country's ancient Pagan religion. They think that newer religions are corrupted somehow, I guess. Or at least not as good as what their super-special master race people came up with back in the good old days.

Why is a discussion with a person who didn't want to take your opinion on the internet important enough to be bawwed out on the internet instead of taking it with a friend? I'm well aware that this is a forum and that I can choose to ignore it but since it has become so common I'm wondering how it works when, whenever there's a conflict, annoyance or problem of any kind, part of getting over it has to be to put it on the interwebz.

On topic: They have their idea of how things work and you have yours. They didn't want to bow to your infinite wisdom - get over it. :)

It's not 'infinite wisdom'. It's common fucking knowledge, as far as 'witches' go. It was like arguing whether Abraham Lincoln was a president or not. It's not a matter of opinion, it's a matter of what simply is or isn't.
