"If witchcraft is a nature religion then the primary laws of nature must hold true above all else. So the first law of witchcraft must be, logically thinking, the strong survives and, the second law of witchcraft, as in nature, must be, life must consume life in order to live. This not only contradicts the fabled Wiccan Rede but also renders it null and void. ... The whole idea is of the fabled Wiccan Rede is impractical and proves itself flawed when applied to real life situations in the mundane world." - Shawn Poirier, 1967-2007
Witchcraft is not only an early pagan form of religion but also the science and craft of causing change to occur in conformity with Will. Since it is a craft of the wise, one must use wisdom when practicing it. Let's apply that wisdom now.
If one were to say that the strong survives in nature how does one measure this strength? Is it physical strength we're speaking of? Or is it spiritual strength? How about emotional strength? Or mental strength? Which is stronger of all of these? When we speak of using Will to change the things around us doesn't that imply that mental strength is, at that point, stronger
