- Pagan attitudes to science are explored, and compared with previous findings, popular discourse and the writings of Pagans. Pagans are generally observed to accord more authority to science than religion, but to find the ultimate source of authority within the self. This trend is examined in the light of secularisation and re-enchantment theory. Demographic data was also gathered, showing that many respondents have higher education qualifications, many of which are in scientific subjects. All of this suggests that Pagans do not see their religion as being in conflict with science; many see the Pagan and scientific world-views as complementary descriptions of the same underlying reality.
