Existentialism in its purest form is any philosophy which states that existence precedes essence; that is to say, that there is no inherent purpose in life (though normally this is not carried through to nihilism.). It also states that the physical world does not necessarily precede the conscious state, as a conscious mind must find itself in a world to attain consciousness in any meaningful state.
Nihilism is an extreme version of existentialism, as are most forms of solipsism.

Often used to refer to non-Christian religions, non-Abrahamic religions or religions outside the major world religions, the better common usage is to refer to any nature-based religion], or native European religion.

However, the proper usage refers to the earth-worshipping, largely matriarchal religions of pre-Christian eastern celtic Europe (applied to modern revivals of these religions such as the Cult of the Goddess, Wicca or Druidry, it is properly neopagan), and distinguishes these from the Northern and Easter European beliefs such as Asatru or Germanic Heathenism, which are properly heathen.
Ancient Druidry is a good example of a pagan faith
