    Pagan religion might include many stuff I enjoy.

    The problem is that it's hard to find any information about it.



    And pagan is an umbrella word for many differents movement.
    That’s why I specified Celtic paganism (I don’t mean Wicca, Wiccan is made up trash)
    Also Celtic paganism in it self isn’t necessarily one thing. Theirs Gaelic, Gallic, and late Brittonic Celtic paganism as well as the poorly attested celtiberian or Hispano-celtic paganism

    That's the problem, there is no good sources, the real evidence is spread out over many sources. I would give the channel "sanctuary of the gods" a watch, but he can get a bit out-there in his theories, although he reads directly from the last written sources of the stories that may provide a hint. One thing that may help you is understanding the nature of indo-european pantheons, and myths in general and then reading the sources, some things will just fit.

    Coming danger could also be averted on the same principle, and though the victims were usually slaves, in times of great peril wives and children were sacrificed.
    The Nemedian sacrifice to the Fomorians is said to have been two-thirds of their children and of the year's supply of corn and milk
    Diodorus says the Irish ate their enemies, and Pausanias describes the eating the flesh and drinking the blood of children among the Galatian Celts.

    Yes of course see my signature. I just love Celtic mythology. I was brought up reading it and have never stopped loving it.

    The Morrigan (also Mrrigan or Morrigu) is one of the most mysterious figures in Irish mythology.
    The name Morrigan means 'phantom queen' (or 'great queen') and describes a Goddess from old Ireland that was very associated with war, destiny, fate and death.
    She was a shape-shifter and frequently appeared as a black crow, an ominous sign for those who saw her prior to battle. Legend has it that the Morrigan was in fact a triad of sisters, often named as Badb, Macha and Nemain, while the Morrigan is also remembered as the triad of the land Goddesses riu, Banba and Fdla.

    A french pagan on youtube tell that it might be a legend invent by christianity to picture pagan as violent monster.
    He beleive human sacrifice might have never exist.

    No ideas if it might be true or not.

    Have you considered the main sources that we have of the gauls were when they were in a time of great desperation, also Romans tended to exaggerate such practices and their frequency as a form of propaganda or simple bias. The Romans also said that the gauls had sword that always bent on impact, and yet science has proven them wrong. They also accused the gauls of 'liking their own men more than their women' as a form of propaganda as well (because in roman society, being penetrated was a sign of emasculation) to say "We are real men, they aren't"
    It's clear to me that a society like theirs wouldn't have even worked if they sacrificed, and had as many gay relations as the Romans state, just as they wouldn't have almost conquered Rome itself with sword that are constantly bending.

    Unfortunately for me, the stories were lost in my family, so I had to rediscover them in my journey of ancestral discovery
