Question by robbie: What are the some practices and beliefs dealing with Hellenic Paganism?
Im new to the fact that some people still exclusively follow the Hellenistic pantheons and Im quite curious about it because I know soooooo much more about the Greek and Roman Gods and Goddesses but nothing about the modern practice. So if you have any experiences sources or beliefs you don’t mind sharing thanks very much!

Genetically modified organisms are at the forefront of modern agriculture and causing significant controversy. The ethical dilemma arises from the risks that come with the growth and production of GM plants and animals, which due to the novelty of the science may not be fully understood. It is important then to understand the risks involved and how best to minimize them with best management practices in agriculture and government regulation. It is also of great importance that the public be aware of the potential risks and benefits of GMOs in order to make an educated decision regarding them. We hope to accomplish this be creating a fact sheet to submit to the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station that provides an overview of the science behind genetic modification, the prevalence of GMOs, the benefits, the risks, and the ways these risks are minimized.

Question by Alex S: How important is each religion in Guatemala? How will religious practices have an effect on marketing?
I have found the major religions in Guatemala include Roman Catholic(50-60%) and Protestant(40%). There is also a small percentage of traditional Mayan religions, although I am more concerned about the most popular religions.
To be more specific I am wondering what religion and religious practices might have on marketing a new product in Guatemala and the steps a company might have to take in order to overcome these obstacles.

African Witchcraft – The History, the Practices and the Controversies

African Witchcraft is a collective term used to describe the spiritual traditions (both past and present) of the various ethnic groups in Africa. From a historical point of view, Egyptian Witchcraft and Arabic Sihr traditionally formed a part of the mix. These two ceremonial forms of Witchcraft are nearly extinct, and have been replaced by the Islamic faith.


The witchcraft practiced in the rest of Africa is shamanistic in nature. Long before the East and the West converged on the continent, the shamanistic practices of Africans were remarkably similar in spite of the ethnic and tribal diversity that prevailed.


This is no longer the case, though. The influences of the Christian and the Islamic religions on African Witchcraft are noticeable. The colonization of Africa by the English, Dutch, French, Portuguese and Germans, brought its own set of cultural influences too. This accounts for the diversity now to be found in the practice of African witchcraft from ethnic grouping to ethnic grouping and from tribe to tribe.


This diversification should not be interpreted as dilution or intensification, though. It merely implies that African witchcraft in its purest form has been exchanged for African shamanism of an eclectic form.


The heinous practice of slave trading led to the export of African witchcraft to the Americas, where it now survives under the auspices of religions such as Voudun, Obeah, Santera, Quimbanda and Candombl.


What is African Witchcraft?


African witchcraft is a nature based religion, where one or more Deities, nature spirits and ancestral spirits are worshipped. The witchdoctor, with his or her ability to commune with Deity, nature spirits and ancestral spirits, is traditionally held in awe – an awe which is an odd mixture of respect and fear.


The reason for this fear is simple. Magic in the African sense may be used for both positive and negative purposes. It can be used to bless and to curse, to cure and cause disease, to bring peace and to initiate battle, to protect and to harm, to create and to destroy.


The witchdoctor can be either male or female. Although there is no gender equality in African culture, no distinction is generally made where spiritual practices are concerned. The witchdoctor is responsibile for divination, healing, presiding over rituals, conducting rites of passage, performing sacrifices, finding lost cattle, protecting warriors, casting and removing spells, and narrating the history and myths of old.


For harmony between the living and the dead, which is an essential component of leading a trouble-free life, ancestors are shown respect by means of daily offerings, prayers and songs, elaborate rituals and animal sacrifice.
