Suomenism and Ukonism?[edit]

Is there any reliable source for the English terms Suomenism and Ukonism? I am not an expert of Neopaganism, but I couldn't find a single occurrence of the term Suomenism on the Taivaannaula website cited as a reference (Google: Suomenism site:taivaannaula.org), and the term Ukonism is used only on a handful of pages (Google: Ukonism). Both terms (and this article) are ridiculed by Finnish Neopaganists in this forum thread. --Silvonen (talk) 16:26, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

I moved the article back to “Finnish Neopaganism” and removed those two neologisms. --Silvonen (talk) 05:03, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

So far, this seems to be mostly a phenomenon of "internet paganism". That's no slight on the Finns, as pretty much 90% of Neopaganism visible on the internet worldwide probably qualifies as "internet paganism". Experience shows that this is the typical first step, and de-facto pagan practice may or may not grow out of online beginnings within a decade or so. But unless we have third party reports on the existence of actual adherents, I am afraid that this article is spiritual vaporware, so to speak. --dab (𒁳) 16:21, 23 August 2010 (UTC)
