This is sort of like the fake wicca "religion" that masquerades as an ancient religion.

Its all made up - there is no link to any past celts or druids or whatever they think they are keeping alive.

They have created wicca ex nihilo and pretend it is an ancient tradition.

Given the absence of any Greek pagans for over a thousand years, this too is new-age claptrap. Then again, it was claptrap back in the day, too, but now they can't even claim a real link to the ancient pagan past; that link was lost centuries ago.

Exactly. When these people start sacrificing bulls, then I'll believe that they're real pagans. Until then, they're just delusional individuals who are so out of touch with reality that they prefer to live in an escapist fantasy world.
