What do pagans believe in?
What do they believe in or worship?
Many pagans worship nature, but there are nature-worshippers who don’t call themselves pagans, like the naturalistic pantheists. Many pagans believe in a multitude of Gods and Goddesses, polytheism, but there are some polytheists who aren’t pagans, like the Mormons (a Christian sect). Some who call themselves pagans are neither nature-worshippers nor polytheists, but their paganism consists in working magic, like the Thelemites. There is no easy way of classification. I would say all practitioners of Wicca, Hellenismos, Ásatrú, Religio Romana, Kemeticism, Neocelticism, Druidism, Romuva, Hinduism, Native American religion and African religion (and this is just a partial list) are pagans. Jews, Christians and Muslims certainly aren’t. Buddhists aren’t either. Taoists may qualify, if their belief in Gods has any impact. Shintoists perhaps also. Atheists can be pagans if they revere nature and call themselves pagans.
As many people believe, Pagans do not worship Nature; we revere it. The definition of the word "Pagan", a person holding the beliefs different from the Major World Religions. Depending on the person, their beliefs will vary. Not every Pagan believes in Goddess or God, there are numerous Pagan Traditions. If you are Pagan, usually you are Polytheistic. Meaning you believe in a variety of Gods and Goddesses. But as many people would deny, there are some Pagans that are Monotheistic. Meaning only one single creator. It will vary depending if you are Wiccan, Witch, or if you follow your own path. Every single person is different and every single person will have a different view on their belief.

Just a question, but it would seem if there really were no God, then Atheists couldn't exist. Is Atheism a religion? They definitely seem to be unified by a common belief.
