Modern Wicca arose relatively recently, and due to a lack of agreed doctrine creation myths are not shared universally. The following is one of the more common myths associated with the faith; some followers believe in a scientific explanation and combine it in various forms with creation myths.

Some followers of the Wicca religion believe the demiurge began from a nothingness out of which Spirit drew together and created the Goddess of Wicca. She gave birth to all of nature and set forth its rhythmic movements as a dance. Her breath formed the colors and beauty of nature, her tears formed water, and her laughter formed the sounds of water.

Spirit then created for the Goddess a companion God (or the "Lord"), half-spirit and half-animal who is represented as wearing the antlers of a stag, as her life-mate and companion. Together, the Lord and Lady gave birth to all life. To protect and guide humanity, the Lord and Lady created the angels and power spirits as invisible energies.

Not really, Q.

I've been kind of "stuck" all day.......

I wanted to follow this up with the Theosophist's view.  Well, I am getting nowhere.
I am overwhelmed by the language.  Some days my mind will just NOT open up to the 'esoteric'
way of putting things.

I always think of the Greek Oracle:  the pronouncements were always convoluted, so that the
outcome of the prophecy could be taken various ways.  That's how theosophy sounds to me
today......
