    Because the topic jumped from stone axes vs metal axes, to Native Americans were in the Stone age, there wasn't a copper age, to the Americas weren't Isolated, to native Americans weren't advanced, to the library of Alexandria, to the destruction of the library, to religion and the destruction of knowledge and then somewhere along the way the topic of bison and beasts of burden were added, and now the topic of witches?

    I don't have problems discussing a topic but I prefer for it to stay on track and not jump to 15 million different things. If you want to talk about witch craft then go ahead and talk about it in a separate post and I may or may not have something to say about it. But I tire of the topic jumping. Side track by one or 2 topics is just too much.

    I've known people who have done witchcraft, I know a little bit about the history of it. But being that it's a religion eventually it'll get to the point were people will believe what they want. As long as it stays on topic and in a separate thread I don't have any problems talking about it.

    lol. yeah I just realized the change in the topic. Anthropology is very general, but I'm assuming that it's in the context of Weapon and tool development and not religion. And I don't know any religion based weapons.

    Really? All the witches I know identify themselves as pagans.
    But I'm sure you know more about it than they do.

    Apparently.

    Calling yourself a thing does not magically impart knowledge of that thing. I've met many a Christian that doesn't know a thing about the Bible, and the 'pagan' community have more than their share of such people.

    All that aside, these words have wildly different definitions.
    Paganism - Wikipedia

    Witchcraft - Wikipedia

    Well, since you like Wikipedia so much...
    "Wicca (English: /ˈwɪkə/), also termed Pagan Witchcraft, is a contemporary Pagan new religious movement. "

    I think that only works if the vampire was a Christian before they were turned.

    For use against non vampires, a crucifix works well as a bludgeon.

    Source: I once hit my head on a crucifix and it hurt.

    It was a stone one though, maybe the christians who painstakingly carved it were too lazy to cast up an iron one...

    I'll take the risk - it can't be any worse than working in an office and I survived doing that for a while.

    If I change my mind, I can always just ask the gatekeeper to forgive me ;)

    well it depends , pagan in its original sence is any religion not based on Abraham, particulary those with multiple gods. So in that sense witch craft is most definetly pagan
