I see the term/title a lot but I don't know what it means...
Can someone tell me what it is? What does it mean to be pagan? What do pagans believe in and so on...
Thanks in advance :)

Frankly there is way to much information to fit in to this box. Because of that I wrote an article just to answer this question (which comes up a lot)... What Is Pagan?
Like Christian, Pagan is a blanket term which covers a large amount of different belief systems. Just about anything which isn't Christian, Muslim or Jewish, falls under the term Pagan. Hindu, Buddhist, Toaist are all well known faiths which fall under that term, however, when you hear someone use the term Pagan to identify themselves or their beliefs, they are generally not referring to these faiths - otherwise they would identify as such. Instead, when you hear the term Pagan it usually means one of two things, they either belong to a faith which is linked to a Pre-Christian faith or they follow a more modern yet "natural" path. Pagans tend to be Polytheistic. And you'll find that just about every Pagan has a difference in beliefs from one another - it's a very individualized religious path.
