Just wondering if anyone else is Wiccan in terms of faith or belief, have you ever considered becoming Wiccan or know someone who is.
Im Wiccan, and I have to say since joining a few months ago its really changed my life for the better, im more positive and confident in myself and with others.

I think it's complete bullshit. I also know a couple of girls who are into it, it's just a teenage goth thing, if you're marooned in the suburbs it's a little bit exotic.
The truth is that exotic religions and practises are not to be dabbled in, you can't just "convert" like that (snaps fingers), it's a cultural thing that you are born into. I might think Christians are all arseholes, and I might have read the Koran a few times, but that doesn't mean I can escape the Christian roots of my culture and society. A few chants and rituals won't change that, and won't make me a Muslim, Buddhist, or (god forbid) Wiccan.

No - Wicca is supposedly North European/Saxon Earth-goddess religion, supposedly Druidic in origin, but probably just a lot of 19th Century romantic silliness. Kaballah is Jewish mysticism, it is based on esoteric Jewish literature from the Middle Ages (I think its around then, anyway) - but it's not the same.
