Any Druidae among us?
Those who know that we practice one of the oldest known belief systems, older than 3rd century BCE - not a certain Neopagan religion

Even if you were practicing the religion of the ancient druids, that still wouldn't make it "one of the oldest known belief systems." Some people who are older: the Greeks, the Romans, The Egyptians (by about 3000 years), the Mesopotamians (also by about 3000 years), not to mention aboriginal religions that have been passed down orally so we have no records to conclusively date. And that's just off the top of my head.
So, where exactly are you getting your ancient Druid knowledge? Because the historical community, not to mention the Druids and Celtic Reconstructionists who are honest about their paths, are all dying to know.

which druid taught you the oral lore from 1500 years ago?
none? then you don't know squat about the ancient druids, and you are, in fact, practicing a neo-pagan religion.
you can't claim to be something that ceased to exist when the last of the old druids died with the lore, and all you're doing is making honest pagans look ridiculous.

"Druidae" is only used in bad translations from Latin. If you want to use Latin, use the more established druides, but why you'd use Latin when the Celts had their own words is beyond me.
