Wiccans have various creation stories, depending upon the path of the individual Wiccan.  Many believe that from chaos came the Goddess.  She created the God.  Upon their union, the universe(s) were created.

I personally tie the creation in with Evolution.  I do not believe that the divine said I want to make man today and poof he was there.  I think the Goddess and God gave the world what it needed for life to grow and flourish.  I think they watched over the evolution of the Earth and (at times) guided it in the right direction.  But that is just my personal opinion.


Do wiccan's believe in evolution or creation?

Just wanted to let you guys (from Practically Enchanted) know...I took my Aunt, her foster kids, and my mother in the store.  Mom knew it was ran by Wiccans...she had no problem with it.  I did let my Aunt know before we went in.  She loved the store!!!  She said it had a lot of really nice stuff, and she liked that you guys were nice to her kids.  She said, "Yeah, they're Wiccan.  That's ok, I have my God and they have theirs.  I don't mind."  Just thought you would want to know.  :wee_fly:

this thread started out as an advertisement for a business. I really don't care who owns the business. but to use that business to promote a wiccan religion (or vice versa), negative responses should not be unexpected. But many churcshes are doing the same thing on tv. You can say what you want but you are making wicca commerce. just like the tv guys selling tapes and books about christianity. you can invite people to come in and see what goes on,what you sell , and talk. but it is a ploy for acceptance of a non christian religion.
That would not stop me from coming in as there may be something of interest,I don't ask the religious beliefs of every business I go into.

How are we making Wicca a commerce?  Because we are providing people with a place where they can buy books, and magickal supplies.  Most of our products do not even deal with the Wiccan aspect.  Most of the products are things that everday people use.  We hand-make incense, teas, and bath products.  I thought everyone took baths/showers.  We also carry candles (everyone burns candles).  We carry clothing, jewelry,  baked goods, and scrapbooking supplies. It seems as though many people think we start badgering people when they come into the store.  That is not what happens at all.  People come into the store, we ask if we can help them find anything.  We tell them if they have any questions or need any help to please let us know.  We help them in whatever way we can.  I only wish Wal-Mart had that good of customer service.

I have my 4th degree in Wicca and Witchcraft.  I have been practicing the Craft for 15 years.  I am an ordained minister, teacher, and Elder of the the Wiccan community.  It is my responsibility to the Wiccan community to provide them with the knowledge and guidance they need as they are the future.  I donate a good 30-40 hours a week of my time to teaching classes and providing them with information they need.  The store allows us to network and have a place to meet.  It is our home away from home.  Last I checked, the store pays taxes.  It doesn't hide behind the tax exempt thing that the churches do.  Although, if we wanted to, I could fill out all the paper work and form a Wiccan Church.

You don't get to argue two different sides.  Your using a double account.  Cut the crap.

A good friend told me of the conversation that was taking place here and so I registered so that I could put my two cents in. As a Christian mother, I was horrified to discover that for one we have such a store in the community and that for two there is mention of a coven in the community as well. Maybe we are at the end of days. The people who run this store seem adamant that we come in and talk to them but guess what, that is how the devil ensnares people and I for one will not be a part of it. I will not support such a business and I cannot believe that the community center is letting them have an event there.  May the Lord bless and keep us all.

Fish, we are a BUSINESS!  We sell things and PAY sales tax.  As a business, we sell Wiccan/Pagan supplies so that the Wiccan/Pagan community doesn't have to drive to Springfield or St. Louis to buy their supplies.  It saves gas money and shipping fees!

No Fish, that is called making a living. Don't see you all bent out of shape over the Christian Book Store that was (or maybe still is) out by the first shopping center outside post.
Same as that store, they are only making a living.

I support their right to have a store and sell what they want.  That's what is so great about this country.  You don't get run out or killed because of your beliefs.  You can support them or not by buying their product and ideals.  As I have stated before I choose not to but support their right to exist and do business.

not bent out of shape at all on either stores. the wicca store is going beyond just selling goods,their right and choice. but they are making a profit promoting their religious beliefs. I slam the churches that are doing the same thing.

So the Bible book store is NOT making a profit selling their religious beliefs?  This is America, and anyone has the right to make money by any legal means. Would it be OK to sell Wicca products if you were not a Wicca so that you are not selling items of your religious beliefs?
They are running a legit store, items they sell are taxed, those taxes help this community, what is the difference from what they are selling and McDonald's? Each one has a product and apparently there is a consumer that wants this product.
By your reasoning, then we need to out law all stores from selling Bibles and Cross necklaces as these are religious items based upon their beliefs.

Commerce:  The buying and selling of goods, especially on a large scale, as between cities or nations.

Any business would be a commerce.  This could be why they pay SALES TAXES!  Interesting concept, don't you think?

The Wiccan religion has been out in the public for a very long time.  Apparently, you have lived a very sheltered life.  The store does not teach religion or attempt to force religion on anyone.  Practically Enchanted provides the Wiccan/Pagan community with a place to purchase their supplies.  I don't forsee someone taking the time to learn how to melt down metal and pour athames or swords.  Although, that would be absolutely awesome to learn.

As an Elder and teacher, I give workshops and classes.  I also teach independent studies and accelerated programs.  The store is open for all walks of life, not just Wiccan.
