Cyberhenge: Modern Pagans on the Internet
In Cyberhenge, Douglas E. Cowan brings together two fascinating and virtually unavoidable phenomena of contemporary life--the Internet and the new religious movement of Neopaganism. For growing numbers of Neopagans-Wiccans, Druids, Goddess-worshippers, and others--the Internet provides an environment alive with possibilities for invention, innovation, and imagination. Fr om angel channeling, biorhythms, and numerology to e-covens and cybergroves where neophytes can learn everything from the Wiccan Rede to spellworking, Cowan illuminates how and why Neopaganism is using Internet technology in fascinating new ways as a platform for invention of new religious traditions and the imaginative performance of ritual. This book is essential reading for students and scholars of new religious movements, and for anyone interested in the intersections of technology and faith.

It is interesting to see myself included in a book I knew nothing about, where the author makes assumptions about myself and the group I started on Yahoo. I was not contacted nor asked anything about the circumstances on why the list has been abandoned. I do not like it when people make situations fit what they are trying to prove. Because of this I hope no one takes the findings in this book to seriously.
Thank you for reading this,
