Witches and Christians

by

It’s the time of the year when the supernatural becomes a fun thing to pretend.  It still isn’t real, but it’s nice to suspend disbelief in the cause of a good scare.  Like watching a movie.

Which brings to mind witches.

I have known several people who claimed to believe they were witches- some were specifically practitioners of Wicca.

Well, even if I hadn’t observed it first-hand I could have still told the Big Secret: Witchcraft doesn’t work, exactly like Christianity doesn’t work.  But they (claim to) believe it does.  Just like Christians claim to believe about their own religion.

Both are empty delusions.  To argue over who is a “true witch” or a “real Christian” is meaningless.  What you see is what you get.  There is nothing more.  No matter how strong their faith is the real-world results are the same.  Some positive psychological effects and confirmation bias can account for everything.

So, both are silly but most witches I have personally met are nicer than most Christians I have met.  Maybe it’s because witches say they believe that whatever you do will come back to you multiplied by 3.  Maybe Christians would be nicer if they believed that, too.
