Brockley: Rise of the Wiccans

Dave Skylark: This was a revolution ignited with nothing more than a camera and some questions. Questions that led a man, once revered as a god among mortals, to cry and shit his pants. The end.

I believe I've met the animist. Scientologists ,pffhwt,they just can't hack it here.

The funny thing is, a lot of the ones putting themselves down as Christian would probably be agnostic or atheist in practise.

You also didn't mention the 122 Jedi Knights available in the dataset

It's too depressing to contemplate that there are that many unfunny people about.

Interesting indeed - and as, I always thought, Brockley is a neighbour of, but does not include, Hilly Fields or Ladywell - or St.Johns, Deptford, New Cross, Crofton Park or Honor Oak either for that matter.

Those figures might perhaps account for all the banging and wailing that goes on by the stone circle when the solstice comes around. Always a warm welcome for new blood in the Village.

"In total, there are 6,054 people who identify as having no religion". Amen to that.

Or the 3 who listed their religion as "heavy metal".

I am that person. Why does my paradigm of reality get singled out as unrealistic, over any of the "big bloke in the sky creating the world by magic" systems exactly?
