From blogdex... The Pagan Poo-poo chart

First off, for those who don't know blogdex it's worth investigating. Blogdex gives a ranking of links in blogs. In other words, of it's members, what stories are hot. If you are a member of blogdex, your links are also evaluated. So it's sort of a neilsen on what the blogs are talking about.

Today's entry comes in at #15 on the chart with 9 blogs looking at it. (I will make it 10 unless it drops off someone else's)

I've often talked about the concept that every religious group has another group it doesn't respect. Now, I'm not saying that everyone in this group looks down or that it's the edict of the group to look down... It just sort of happens. The example I give often goes like this...

There are Judeo-Christians. They as a whole back away from Wicca. Primarily because they don't really know enough about Wicca. The Wiccans tend to back away from the OTO because it's too dark and blah blah blah. The OTO tends to dismiss the Scientologists because... well, they are scientologists.

So, someone went and drew up a big chart. Everything from OTO to Wicca to Ayn Randroids(sic) to BOTA and the Profiteering SubGenii. It is an interesting examination in who actually 'looks down' on who. I don't know if I agree with the whole chart and it's missing several things, "Judeo Christians, Scientologists, etc.)

Feeel free to comment or laugh, or not care.

EDIT: This chart is the work of Ashley Yakeley who based it on the Brunching Shuttlecocks Geekiness chart. Ashley did it on a Mac using OmniGraffle :)
