Yes, Harry Potter magic is, unfortuantly, a childhood fantasy.

Right, and i would have to disagree with Ardnax :P about being brached as she called it, or whatever. To have a branche you just have to do some major heavy research about it, and get lots of information, really it has nothing to do with skill, but just as equally it has nothing to do with age. Really, its just you making a choice to follow a select path of wicca instead of the generalised wicca.

How to detect witches :
Common physical characteristics that indicate a person is a witch :
Red hair , warts , blemishes , pock scars and "strange" eye and hair colour (most people had dark eyes and a brownish skin in the Middle Ages ,
therefore, blue-eyed blondes were the favourite candidates).

How to make them confess :
Torture , of course , what did you think ?

Interesting historical , random facts :
In England , witch-burnings stopped first : 1684.
In Poland , last : 1792.
Last modern european process concerning witchcraft : 1944 , London. (The lady was condemned)
Last (official) modern process : 1979 , Nairobi (Kenya)
Victims (approximately) : Europe : around 100.000
Germany : around 20.000 (blue eyes , blonde hair)
The statement of a man counted more than the ones of multiple women ;
all women were regarded as potential witches .
Eventually , the Roman-Catholic "Inquisitio" officially ended in 1834.

What do you think black listing was all about in the 1950's? It was basically a witch hunt and it didn't do much good except to cause mass hysteria.

I quite like the idea of an inquisition with me as chief inquisitor.

Anyone with an IQ below 130 would be burned. I desire a smarter world.

That wouldn't be much of a witch-hunt. Finding people with an IQ below 130 isn't hard.

Witch burnings were very useful to settle personal scores.
So was collaboration with the Nazis in occupied regions of Europe , if I dare
advance this example.
Mentalities never change completely .

Slight problem; you'd have to burn yourself to a crisp.

Note to self - Making your own religion and worshipping yourself is great. eg, Hazzle.

When I was little , I used to be a fire-maniac ; I always liked to stare at burning material such as lighted up, cut-off branches of a tree , burning wood in my grandmother´s oven or , for instance , our German neighbours´ home.
Witch burnings are not stupid ; they helped to prevent female overpopulation
in the Middle Age ; men died in wars (either in internal european fights or the
Crusades) , women got burnt.
I really cannot understand why people tend to regard witch burnings as
despicable nowadays. They are obviously stupid and overly sentimental.

yes, pyromania tends to be quite fun. til you get caught out by a couple of random parents asking where the basketball courts are, all the while giving you strange looks as a few of you try to put out the bonfire in the middle of the carpark.

but if a lot of men were dieing, wouldn't you want to build up the population to replace them? hence you'd want to keep the women.

Of course you are right here.
Nevertheless I am confident that God in person punished women in the way
they deserved it, and , as we all know, God shall not be questionned although
he seems quite sexistic.

I apologiSe for the wrong use of the English language here ; I would in addition exhort you to write God in capital letters , seeing that we owe him so much and that He is sexy , if you don´t mind.
As for you , Nick , please avoid referring to God as to a "fucker" , just imagine He reads these utterly deliciously divine boards , which would certainly tempt him to plan his personal revenge on you already.
On top of that , the evidence of God being a "fucker" is there , but merely in one single case , if at all ; the intercourse I am speaking about as a good Catholic is confusing ; something about the Holy Spirit getting into Mary or whatever. We tend to believe that he was not personally involved in that act, so the poor old chap never really experienced the pleasures of sexuality...And you dare call him a "fucker" still ?
What about his very Son then ? I am sure that He , still amidst us , as you
know , will not be amused by the offense he will take from your imprudent
statement.
Paradise is lost for you , I am afraid. My sincere condolences.
