is Easter Pagan? Catholicism or the pagan goddess Astarte. Dr. Taylor Marshall explains the historical origin of the Christian feast of the Resurrection, how it was calculated, how it relates to the Spring Equinox and how it became named "Easter" as relates to the pagan goddess Astarte, which also means "rise" and "east" and "Dayspring" and "spring equinox."

All ancient peoples had Spring Festivals, were Nature resurrected after the winter sleep.

No.
Easter commemorates the central event of Christianity.
Ie the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

It is the central historical event of human civilisation and existence.

But pretty much every agricultural society, all over the world, has such Spring festivals.

All agricultural societies hope for the Virgin Spring to rise from Her winter sleep every year, so that life will be eternal.
They can hope away with their flowers and carrots and tulips.
It is feck all use to us humans.

The only hope worth talking about at this time of year or indeed anytime is the hope of resurrected humans.

There are quite a few from the past that on general resurrection day I will personaly thump, God or no God.

You mean you consider the resurrection of the individual to be more important than the resurrection of Nature every Spring?

Of course.
Nature has no actual real soul ,as part of earthly existence it is lovely, but it is utterly subordinate and inferior to humans and all of human life,
because only humans can interact with and relate to God at any real level.

The significance of the Resurrection is the big meeting with God.

Absolutely
And this is the problem with modern environmentalists
They see animals and plants as being equal to humans - whereas in reality God gave man dominion to rule over the earth and to subdue nature
So we have this God given right to rule but they want us to turn us into something almost equal to plants and animals.
Which is turning Christianity on its head and having us ultimately worshiping cabbages
That has to be opposed

I think this is a very egotistic mentality, which leads directly to the environmental catastrophe of Capitalism. We also see it in the churches today, where people go to Mass and feel it's a private matter between them, the priest and God. The other people in the church might as well not exist. And that's why Catholic churches, for the most part, are no longer the center of communities. Indeed, no community at all is associated with a lot of them.

At the end of the day when each person stands before God , the community ( whatever that means) is not going to be interceding or having any part in the discussion.
If your notion of Catholicism is community worship to the exclusion of private individual worship then that notion is false.

I suspect this is another reason you have been deceived by the antipope Francis who activel and energetically promotes the destruction of individual worship of God,
