Do you believe fairys are real? How about Unicorns? What do you believe and why? I believe that unicorns could of been real, and fairys I think are real only in the minds of some. What do you think

I think pretty much any "mythological creature" that has existed in more than one culture must exist or have existed in some form (either spiritual or physical) at some point. Otherwise, why would many cultures have similar myths? As for fairies, of course I believe in those. But then my great-grandmother used to dance with them regularly, and I've spotted them myself. Since fairies are part of my religious believes though, it's a little bit different for me than for most people. =)

*smiles* I refer to myself as a Celtic Reconstructionist Pagan. =p It's kind of strange for me because my great-grandmother taught me, but everyone else in my family was Christian. I guess when my grandmother was really young, my great-grandmother tried to teach her a Celtic path, but my grandmother didn't want to be "weird" since everyone else in the area was Christian. My father was forbidden by my grandmother from learning from my great-grandmother since he was a child, so I was really the first person she got the opportunity to pass things down to. My own son will have many religious choices. His father is Christian and I am Pagan, and we all go to a Unitarian Universalist fellowship, which is for people of all religions. So he'll get to learn about a lot of beliefs and then make his own choices. I know a lot of people who don't believe in any of the "mythological" stuff, but when you say "Then why did so many cultures have similar creatures?" they usually don't have a good answer for you.

right, my fiance is into high magic so my step kid (we dont realy teach him which i dont get b/c my fiance doesnt want the other people to think were "weird" like you said prob) gets to do what ever he wants religous wise. when he gets older though i think he will start questioning and then i think thats when brian(my fiance) will start teaching him differant stuff. aint it weird when your not christain you let your kids be chirstian if they want but if your christian your kid has to be christain too? LOL i just always thought that was weird
