New Some notes
Great reference, but unless you want to set yourself up as a prophet you might want to include citations for ... well, most of it. :) I don't know enough of the source material to have much input on the content except that it all jives with what I know, and sharpens the point on some of the contradictions I've always seen.

Should adaptions be adaptations? It's "technically correct" but the longer form is more common. I had to look it up to see if there was a different meaning for the shorter.

"Conversion by the sword" was not invented by the Muslims, Christianity was promoted ..." Comma should be semi-colon.

Talking about the Confederate States, "succession" should be "secession".

You should probably provide a reference for the Southern politician in 2017 quote.

New Thanks for the corrections and suggestions.
I will look more at citations, but they are not easy. Most of the Jesus side is directly from the Gospels. some items still don't have chapter and verse, but
many do and more will.

Paganism is a massively "distributed" movement with very few widely recognized references or authorities, but with well and widely understood principles. The one book I do reference, Godless Paganism, is very good, being composed of many short pieces by at least 30 non-theist Pagans of every stripe imaginable. Most Pagan literature is short pieces, just as early Christian literature was.

Paganism is held together mainly by the Internet. There are Web sites like Patheos, and magazines like Witches and Pagans. These publications tend to be a bit "Witchy", but that's the largest contingent. Lots of Witches write for their own, predominantly women refugees from Evangelical and other repressive churches.

Wicca is a semi-organized group ritual religion. It is supposedly (but not actually) based on ancient Celtic witchcraft, but no longer likes to be called "witches". "Witch", on the other hand, is a calling, mostly solo practitioners who cheerfully accept the term "witch" and re-conceptualize it.

By far, the majority of Pagans of all stripes are solo practitioners, belonging to no organization - though Pagans are now estimated to outnumber Presbyterians.

My descriptions of the Gospels would be hard to cite, as these sections are my own compilation from the opinions of literally dozens of biblical scholars. Much can be found in Wikipedia, but I also use other sources intermingled, particularly articles in Biblical Archaeology, and include my own direct reading of the Gospels.

Yes, I know - Wikipedia doesn't consider "original research" to be an acceptable citation.
