* "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.

    • Songs of the Metamythos
  • Religion: tree-hugging pagan
  • Preferred Pronouns: he/him/his
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

Pat is often good for a laugh. However, I think the question is funnier than his answer. "Veganism" as "New Age Spirituality"?!

I don't find these things funny, this is part of a parcel of fucked up things that are taught in the kind of church I grew up in. (there are discussions about appropriation when it comes to yoga but thats a whole different thing)

When I was a practicing Catholic, I was advised not to participate in Yoga of any kind!

When I was the department admin for a graduate program at a local college, one of our grad students was going to take an intercultural-oriented psychology class, and she was very.....um, 'concerned' I think would be a polite phrase.... because she'd heard that the instructor had his classes learn tai chi. I had the hardest time explaining to her that: A) the tai chi wasn't compulsory, B) it was a type of exercise similar to yoga and martial arts like judo, and C) it wasn't an attempt at religious indoctrination. (I had a *really* hard time not rolling my eyes at the silliness of her "religious objection".)

There's a lot of ridiculousness wrapped up in that clip. But the thing that stands out most to me is:  How is it praying if you don't even understand the language or the meaning of the words you're saying? Doesn't praying require some kind of intent to, you know, pray?
