* "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.

New & curious
« on: November 15, 2018, 03:38:59 pm »
Hi! I'm new here. I registered because I would like to share some of my thoughts with people who are interested in discussing religion/paganism.

Something about me:
English is not my mother tongue, so please accept my apologies for any present or future mistakes, I'm trying to get better :)

I'm pagan since I can remember, although I grew up in an European christian convent. My house was in the middle of a forest, so I could really stay in touch with nature since my birth, until my twenties, when I've had to move to the city (and it still hurts). I've always had a 'natural'/'prehistoric'/'free' approach to religiousness (is that a word? well, I hope you understand what I mean) and I don't follow any kind of specific pantheon (a recognise stories and gods repeat themselves in time and space with different names and details in art and traditions).
Since I was a kid I've always been interested in pagan religions and history/archaeology in general, so I studied to become an archaeologist. Recently I had occasion to study some religious prehistoric European art and it re-sparked my curiosity about all the different acts possible to 'be religious' and, as I'm learning recently reading forums, all the different labels that exists to differentiate them. I'll be explaining myself better when I post my direct question.

thank you :)

Welcome to the Cauldron! And your English is very strong.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

"Everything's made up of elements, right? Earth, Water, Air, Fire and... sunnink. Well-known fact. Everything's got 'em all mixed up just right."

As a Historian with an Archaeology minor, I welcome you to TC! You are not the only one here with those interests!

Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna

That’s awesome! Thank you! On what topic did you specialized?
I would be very interested in hearing your opinion on some of mine :)

Well, my history degree is only a bachelor's, so I don't have a specialization as yet. I plan to study in Southeast Asia, however, when I go to graduate school.

As for archaeology, my area of focus is North America, simply because that's where I live and where I have had first hand experience.
