The name pagan stems from the Greek xenophobic condition of labeling anything not Greek with a generally negative tag. This has a psychodynamic effect of placing "Greek" in a position of assumed superiority. The word "Pagan" falls into this catagory and has been captured by the English language to mean any religion not Christian. Celtic Religion, though labled Pagan, has a more proper name that exposes political and religious prejudices. The Celtic and Gaelic People are better referred to as Edenites. The total destruction of all European records and the murder of the bards, poets and druids (the keepers of a long oral history) by Christian fanatics was something unimaginable to the stable society. With this came the loss of the religious identifiers and allows the errors in identification to exist unchallenged.
Imagine, if you will, what life was like before Adam and Eve were cast from Paradise or Eden. Place yourself for just a moment into the Garden as the character of your gender. No law, except God's law. No Taxes, no civil government, no wars, abundant food, temperate climate, absolutely perfect. This is the belief and practice of what science blandly calls "The Earth Mother Cult". A more accurate name for Celtic Pagans should be Edenites. As a People, they were never forced to suffer the pangs of being cast from Eden or Paradise. Both The People who were to become the Celts and the People who were later to be called The Native Americans were of this religion. This religion, in many forms, was global in practice. Edenites suffer from several thousand years of relentless civil government persecution and intolerance from organized religious factions.
