Apparently according to modern anthropologists shinto isn't animist???

@karen Any belief which assigns spirits to apparently inanimate objects such as trees, rocks, swords, etc. is animist. This mean pre-christian Greek beliefs are animist too.

@edawson yeah that's why i don't understand why shinto wouldn't be animist

@karen They must have redefined what animism means.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
