Im very interested. What is the difference between the two?
What are they all about?
How can I learn more?
In case youre wondering, Im interested lately in learning about all different religions but for some reason these two have my attention at the moment. So if you could explain a bit more to me I would greatly appriciate it. And sorry if I spelled them wrong.

Pagan as a modern religion refers to a vast number of reconstructionist religious movements, often called Neopaganism to separate it from ancient Pagan religions. Wicca is a Neopagan religion that has many specific "traditions" most of which grew from a religious movement that was made popular by some scholar-practitioners in England in the 1950s who either professed to have "found" the religions intact, surviving from ancient times, or found that remnants of ancient religions had survived & could be restructured for modern times. Paganism or Neopaganism is the label applied to any number of religions that share beliefs with ancient Pagan religions. Whoever wrote the article for wikipedia has a good grasp on the subject so for a brief overview with little bias it is a good place to start. There are several groups on CM where you can hear it "from the horses mouth".
