I'm not really sure, I'd say it's more of a belief?

Paganism is a religion the way that Christianity is a religion. Paganism is an umbrella term for a multitude of belief systems, traditions, and practices.

is it a religion though? I've heard mixed views on it. As for me I dont see it as a religion because when I think of relgion Paganism doesnt fit my opinion and views of religions.

Many religions could fall under the umbrella of Paganism depending on how you define "Pagan."  

Oh you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, Allah is with those who are patient-

I say it's the lack of belief in an organized religion. But that's just me.

This. I was going to stay "umbrella", but you got here first!!

Quoting cinnamonkiti:

I honestly have no idea, I've heard the word used in many contexts so I'm not exactly sure what it means.

Christianity isn't a religion it's a title for paths like another poster stated.  Paganism is a term that at it's most basic deffination hold all other faiths that are not christianity, islam or jewdisim.


With in paganism there are many religions and paths and practices...but because one doesn't understand this doesn't make them non religions either.
