  • no. satan is "christian" pagans dont worship satan.. that is christian jargon. and if one looks up satanism it actually has nothing to do with any horned demon stemming from a story in the bible. satanism is more like the worship of ones inner self. and the powers a person can possess.

  • as far as the "beliefs" they vary. b/c "pagan" is not the religion. there are many different beliefs and denominations of paganism.. varying from druidism to wicca to shamanism. this is a very loaded question.

  • Look in the bible. I have learned a lot about where paganism has come from. And especially the actual beliefs. It’s very interesting. Google Christmas, Halloween, Easter, new years all those things and you will find bunch of links and they tell you a lot about them in a lot more detail. Most all are holidays and particular things we do stem from the pagan religion. It’s been around for thousands of years. You will find under the definition Wikipedia (sp) it’s a free dictionary. Or you could just Google pagan and you will find a bunch of info.. Hopes this help. The dictionary is the best.

  • Most christains think that if your not worshiping god you are worshiping satan because the bible says you cant do both. So yes if you are christian. No if you are pagan. If you are pagan it has not much to do with chistianity.

  • Wiccans don't worship Satan. They are people of the Earth...if anyone, they worship Mother Earth.
