* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Quote from: Chabas;83233
Have you fully thought that last bit through? Really? You don't care what he's like?

Firstly, I think that's a fairly offensive statement to make about someone you claim to care about - I'd certainly kick my boyfriend out of the house if that's how he felt. If you want a relationship with *me* then you'd better care about *me*. Otherwise, I'm just a placeholder for some fantasy you cooked up in your mind.

Secondly, do you recognize how *dangerous* a statement that is? Gods aren't cute kittens you can play with, nor are they completely benevolent. Read what Shadow wrote about him, learn more about him. While Apollo has lovely sides, he's also the bringer of plagues, and has destroyed the children of Niobe because she pissed off his mother. If you're going to be in any kind of relationship with him, then you'll have to deal with THAT side of him as well, not just the pretty music and poems.

Honestly, I have no particular interest in what relationship you do or do not have with Apollo. But for your own sake and out of respect to the deity you claim to love, I'd suggest you start caring what he's like.

--Chabas

 
i already know he has a dark side, when i said i dont care about what hes like i meant i love him no matter what hes like . I dont find him to be a cute kitten like everyone is telling me. I love him and i feel strongly about this. I would still love him even if he hated me . I dont care what anyone tells me i love him and i dont care if he kills me.

Glad you find my idea helpful! :)



Oh wow, I missed this too!   This is totally not cool, and is very disrespectful!

I agree with Chabas and Nachtigall, you need to modify your attitude a bit - show some reverence.   Otherwise you'll likely damage your connection and probably be ignored.

why why is it disrespectful to love a god!? : (  i have feelings for him and i dont even understand why i do . How is  it disrespectful? , what about people in ancient Greece who fell in love with the gods and had them as lovers . Are they disrespectful because they love them in that way , i am in tears i love him so much and im not trying to be disrespectful.I honestly love him  and would do anything for him .

It is not disrespectful to love a god. It is disrespectful to love someone no matter "what they're like" because that's basically saying, "i don't love the real you, I love who I think you are".

I think everyone has already made some excellent points and it is in no way 'wrong' to love a god, but you just have to understand that he's not the boy in school who'll be all charmed that you have feelings for him.

He's a god and gods aren't human. They deserve respect and reverence.

UPG alert - I did a little intro offering for him and got the message that I'd pissed him off with something I had done a few years ago. I apologised with more offerings and my penance was a nasty stomach bug before he was satisfied. So yeah, not fluffy in the least.

i haven't gotten sick at all, i feel alot happier loving him, ive never been so happy in  my life till i found out he was my guide . I haven't gotten sick from him  . I know hes not a fluffy kitten i wish people would stop telling me i think that because its not really what i believe him to be. Im 24 years old and i never loved anyone till i found out about apollo. I love him even if he hates me. I truly love him i really truly love him and i find it sad how everyone says its so horrible to love him in this way. I may sound like a little kid in this forum but i feel close and loving to apollo and i dont know how to express it because i never found anyone i loved in this way . I wish people would realize how much i love him because i cannot say how much i care about him and want to be closer to him.

Nobody here ever said or implied that is wrong or horrible to be romantically inclined toward -or involved with- a deity, but you will admit that saying things 'I love him regardless of who He is, regardless of me knowing him or not' may to have more of a hand in people (possibly) perceiving you as being immature than the exact nature of your feelings.

Also, the fact you are dismissing everyone else opinion with a 'it's so sad you are telling me I cannot be in love with a god ' when nobody said such a thing really makes nothing to make you to look more serious about the subject.

We're not saying you think he's a fluffy kitten.  We're saying that you sound like that.  You don't sound like you're dealing with a powerful being.

There is nothing wrong with loving a god. There is something deeply wrong with trivializing a god, and that's what it sounds like you're doing.

I love Apollo.  I serve, and that is the point it feels like you're missing.  If you adore him, serve.

Also, you mentioned that you've found out about you "spirit guide" via pendulum divination. Have you explored a possibility that perhaps it was not Apollon communicating with you, but rather some other spirit?

 

who else could it be? i heard the name apollo pop in my head before i even used the pendulum , i never heard the name in my life. Then i didint believe it at first because i thought gods couldn't be spirit guides .It spelled out the name of a statue "belvedere"
I felt alot of love towards him even when i read about his dark side i felt alot of loving energy .I had a few powerful experiences in the past with him but i cant tell anyone here because they might try to make me believe it wasint him.

This is a discussion forum - suggesting that you question something is not the same as 'trying to make you believe' anything.

And now I want to slap myself, because considering the similarities with this post in terminology/language and the fact the only posts made were on this subject: http://www.ecauldron.com/forum/showthread.php?2884-Apollo-the-god-of-the-sun

I suspect we might be in presence of the same source of trolling. :whis:

*slaps forehead*  And that thread is even in the 'similar threads'  list at the bottom of the page.  I guess it took long enough for this iteration to start getting outrageous enough to jog some memories that even with 'elvengoddess' listed as the starter of that thread most of us just didn't clue in.  Good call, SkySamuelle.

I'm on my way to bed, but may I refer to this website as my answer?

http://www.hellenicgods.org/manna

In short: it could be a couple of things and I chose this one because it connects well with Apollo's, Artemis' and the other Deities' fiery nature, as it does this:

http://baringtheaegis.blogspot.nl/2012/11/video-tutorial-making-manna.html

(I hope this works, doing this on tapatalk).

Also, I am sorry, but I need to not be involved in this discussion. I wish everyone the best.

Is it wrong that I'm kind of relieved it was trolling?  Because I was getting rather concerned about just how far in over hir head EG could be getting...
