Sounds like a good idea on paper, but it would be hard to put in practice, given that its an online community and scared all over the world. Still its a worthy goal if they can get enough people in one place. Personally I think a few marches and demonstrations would spur recruitment and awareness. I...

Good point, a lot of individuals could be roman if we simply define it as acting roman, but then where does that leave us? I tend to think Napoleon was at least more roman than any of his contemporaries. He seamed to have a classicalist agenda. Just based off of his religious views, his choice of dr...

Agreed, its pretty clear that its another case of Dark age denial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfnkDCp0G9U When you look at the sheer magnitude of lost information and all the amazingly advanced ideas and technologies of which only fragments survive. I think its absurd to cons...

I tend to agree, he had really bad cards to play so calling him incompetent is unfair. He wasn't a demagogue, a military genius, or a sly economist, we was purely a politician. And to say he was an active participant in the conspiracy is to assume that he would have actually wanted the position. Con...

Congratulations Marius... but really this is less about you having done something wrong to be forgiven, than it is about NR making up for its past transgressions. I am pleased with this turn of events and hope this reconciliatory mood continues.

Truly spectacular, indeed it was as moving as a website can be. Very well executed, I can't imagine the gods themselves would be displeased... Except perhaps Seth.

The Atheist/Religious Dialog Board

A friend of mine just started this and made me a moderator. I thought I would bring it up for anyone interested in giving it a look.

Salve, Well its good to know you won’t be completely gone. I am more than willing to say you deserve a break. Hopefully your business in the greater world will go smoothly and you will be able to enjoy some more recreational roman living. You might be dull to yourself, but your far from dull to t...

Fascinating, and infuriating. Personally I think it has more to do with the implications of Monotheism than anything else. 1 god = no other god = persecution. Sometimes I wonder who I have more in common with Constantine or Julian? Funny, my real given is Giuliano and I am a catholic... or ...

Which came first the Orphism, or Buddhism?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orphism_(religion) So which came first the Orphism, or Buddhism? From what I can gather it seams older by at least 50 years, if not 100 or more. If that is the case, the idea could have its origins in the west. Both are very similar, so much so that it seams more t...

Examining the possible roots of the Halo/Aura belief.

I have been doing some curiosity driven research into this topic and it seams most religions had a form of this belief. Can anyone point me to Greco-roman sources? If they exist?

Oh I see what your saying, a good change but a drastic one. I suppose its not entirely surprising that many conservative barbarians would reject Romans and their shiny pebbles.

I mean its not like we don't have modern presidents for hardliners rejecting valuable yet new practices.
