Wicca of the traditional sort is *practice* based, not *belief* based. One is Wicca if one studies the tradition, undergoes the proper initiation, and practices the rituals properly. Granted, the rituals celebrate a God and Goddess, but how you view that Godhead is up to you.

There are Atheist Wicca who view God/Goddess as the subconscious human, or as the scientific forces of nature, or something else entirely. I’m not really sure why one would perform rituals one has no belief in, but hey, I keep dieting even though I never lose any weight, so….

Basically, speaking as a Wiccan, I don’t care what you *believe*, I care what you *do*.
