Pagan is a general term for many religions that are not based in one true God. Most are very peaceful and nature based. I have a friend or two who are wiccan and they are lovely people who believe in being at peace with nature and other people.
Did you have a specific one in mind or just Pagans in general? Paganism at it's most basic simply means one who follows a non-Abrahamic religion. So as was mentioned there are literally hundreds of different Pagan religions/paths, especially if you take Eclecticism into account.
In any case people should be free to choose their own path, so if being Pagan suits them, then there nothing wrong with that.
Pagan religions make just as much sense as any monotheistic religion. Of course all of the Christian dogmatists will provide illogical reasons trying to debunk all other religions, and assert that their god is the only true one. In my opinion, they're all far fetched and a waste of my time.
Well if you want to be technical... Most denominations of Christianity ARE pagan... Christmas is a pagan holiday. Easter is a pagan holiday. So are most holidays that people of different religions celebrate. So if you don't like religions that are pagans look for the ones that don't participate in pagan celebrations.
Christianity has pagan roots, plain and simple. It's older then Christianity, and the church stuck with some of the old ways to try and make it easier to get people to convert to Christianity. The only true evil people I know are not pagan, Wiccan, or even Satanists (self worship has nothing to do with worshiping satan or demons google if you don't believe me), they are the self righteous.

To me, Pagans are people who seek power to solve their problems using any manner other than the God of the Holy Bible. They are those who prefer to call on "the created"for help, rather than "The Creator". Best Wishes! Beth
As already pointed out, pegan is a broad term. But my opinion of this wide, diverse group of people is, that they are doing their best to understand the Almighty, just as I am (as a Christian). God bless.
I see pagans in general as a little backwards (no offense) since most of paganism was explanations for what goes on in nature and worships of the "Gods" that control those processes. Now that we have science to back up nature paganism, in and of itself, has become obsolete. Besides that I could care less what others believe. As long as they are not spewing ignorance
