Ok, I'll post this as a general question, not that I actually expect to see anyone responding. At the very least, if you happen to read this, please think about it for a while.
Let me explain where this is all coming from. As I'm sure many of you know, I'm pagan. However, one of my roommates is Fundy Xtian. This of course, leads to rather interesting dinner conversations. (For some reason, I'm a bit calmer in my dealings with him than my female roommate is.) Current topic of discussion is whether or not magick is possible, or for that matter whether or not it is evil.
Now, here are the options we've come up with.
A) All things are random chance, and praying for, casting for, or expecting something to happen has no overall outcome on the situation.
B)All magick is really the will of God, and all things happen through God's will.
C) Magick works, through preternatural resources that we do not as such yet understand completely. God(Gods, Goddess, etc, ad infinitum) may or may not play any role in it whatsoever.
D) Magick and prayer are all ways to reprogramme the subconcious mind to find the result you are looking for.
E) No of it really matters since the answer is not forthcoming in this lifetime.
Are there any options we have left out (besides us being psychotic losers), and where do you stand?
