This seems to be assuming that all witchcraft is religious witchcraft and that all magic is powered by the devine.

Some people believe that the everything is One and that what we see is all interrelated. Then again, I guess some people don't.

That seems rather dismissive of those different cultures.  'They may perceive what they do as A, but we more enlightened people know it is really B.'  Rather Campbellian, in fact.

That seems rather defensive. It's one thing to say that all points of view are valid; it's another to say that all points of view correspond equally with reality. All sincerely held points of view are equally valid because the people who hold them are equally valid. All points of view do not, however, correspond equally with reality. The Earth is not flat.

Many people nowadays seem to think it's bad manners to suggest that there is a reality, and even worse manners to try and find it. I think they fail to distinguish between ethnocentrism and simple thought, and self-lobotomize in an effort to appear fair and trendy. However, the Earth is not flat; and it's not unenlightened to say so.

I'm new here. Is Joseph Campbell the new red-headed stepchild?

Absent - I'll define my own culture, thanks, and magic is not automatically religious in it.

I heartily support your point of view.
