Do you knock other people's beliefs if it involves magic?

Like the Haitians believe in magic. They "practice santeria" and such. Do you think it's silly or do you accept it for what it is to them?

I honestly think it's interesting. Kinda crazy at times but interesting non-the-less.

  • I would never knock another's belief. I'm a "find your own path/way" kind of person. So if that's what works for them, so be it. :)

  • I'm a Pagan Witch... If I didn't believe in Magick I would be really lost!

  • No, and it makes more sense to me than any sort of prayer. The human mind may have some sort of ability to affect the world around us. We have yet to discover everything the brain is capable of. It's more plausible than the idea of some supernatural creature deciding to intervene on anyone's behalf.

  • I think 'magic' comes from within, so I don't agree with them thinking it's coming from a God/Goddess, but I don't mock their belief that magic exists.

  • I'd be a hypocrite if I did because I'm a practicing witch. Ditto what WoodWitch said :)

  • No, I've always found it very interesting and would love to learn more. As far as I know there aren't any groups in my area that practice those beliefs.

  • Nope. If I did, then I would have to knock my self. Because Im a strong believer of the Wiccan faith....

    Answer by lilmoosesmom at 3:35 PM on Aug. 29, 2010

  • Well, honestly i don't knock anybodies believes because i have mine too. I was raised Christian and a lot of that leaves many doors open for being judgmental as many Christians are, but i always think as long as it does not involve human sacrifice or murder and violence of any kind they can do and believe in what ever they want to.
