* "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.

Still trying to figure it all out
« on: December 31, 2012, 11:45:19 pm »
Hello! The members of chat may have seen me around as 'Guest1' today, or, as they called me, Fred. (Don't ask.)

I am Flame. I am still on the journey of trying to figure everything out, but I don't think that journey really ends for everyone. I'm atheist, and I am quite skeptical of most things, but I think having some sort of religion or spiritual thing would help me to cope with life in general. I think a lot of pagans are the same way, at least I get the general impression.

My username has nothing to do with FlameKeeping, by the way. I'm just quite fond of candles and such.

I have, at least right now, interest in runes, candle magic, and crystals. I'm not sure what else yet.

Welcome, Flame. :)

You'll be glad to know that many Pagan paths are more interested in what you do, rather than what you believe. I was an atheist Pagan for a few years and I still maintain a high degree of skepticality. In my opinion, a religion totally devoid of skepticism isn't very good for functioning in the real world.
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

I just want to say, I know Em hotep is a kemetic thing, but everytime I see it for some reason I wanna spell it backwards, but I get confused because what does Petoh Me mean? :)

Welcome to the forum! I hope you find what you're looking for. I don't think there's anything wrong with pursuing religion for purely pragmatic reasons. :)

It means somebody didn't read the hieroglyphs correctly. ;) :D:

Welcome. :)

I think you're right, that journey never really ends for anyone. But you learn a lot on the way around. You may take a bit of solace in knowing that over the years I've actually found a lot of correlations between spiritual beliefs worldwide and a lot of new scientific understandings of natural phenomena (astronomical, biological, chemical, even basic human biochemical and biological systems). Sometime we just need to look a bit deeper and find the details. :)
