I'll be honest, I have my doubts that most Pagan religions are. One of these days, I'd love to see a list, but until then, what Star said. Your Recon religions are, for the most part, not earth-based.

I asked because, in addition to reading it elsewhere, I'm in the middle of reading "Drawing Down the Moon" (obviously written with a Wiccan slant) and Margot Adler states this claim up front.  It would seem from most of the regulars here though that such is not the case.
In fact, I get the feeling that Wiccans are the minority at this particular forum.  There's got to be a poll here for that already, I'll have to hunt around for it. 

(I wanted to quote Eadie here, but I can't insert the quote now, it only goes back so may posts.  Argh.. manual time!)
In my opinion MOST pagan religions are NOT earth-centered.  If you are just going by a list - since while Wicca encompasses a lot of people, it is not on the list separately for each person...

I see what you're saying -  there's another way to look at this too:  perhaps there are more Pagan religions that are not earth or nature centered/worshiping, but, if there are more people in Wicca than the others,  then judging solely by body count,  one might say that most Pagans (but not pagan religions) are nature-based. (Whether that's accurate or not, I have no idea).  I don't think this what she (Adler) said though.  I'm pretty sure she stated "Pagan religions".

I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realize that what you heard might not be what I meant
