Not saying they are the same, but just as the christians took our holidays and stories for their own, and persecured all others, it's just a thought that mabey the forfathers decided to incorperate other "secret socities" in effort to preserve our faith. Of cource, now humankind has twisted everything to their own benefit. I would like to have someones opinions at least to mabey explore a train of thought. I'm not saying druids became masons just they may have copyrited as did the "christians".
Aitrus wrote:Very interesting discussion! I think that the core philosophies of both Native Americans and Druids, not to mention countless other native religions around the world, are much the same. A similar question could be, were there any Native Americans in pre-Roman Europe? Aside from the differences in art, language and other things, the religions are much the same in their basics and reverence for the Earth as a whole.
When people ask me my religion, I have a pattern answer I give the often blank looks I get. I usually tell them that Druidry is a lot like the beliefs of Native Americans, only it centered on the Celts and Gauls of ancient pre-Christian Europe. That, in essence, it's the beliefs of the native peoples of Europe before Roman times. If I explain it that way, I can usually get the idea across.
