Default Iceland Adopts Nordic Religion - Thor and Odin Making a Comeback - 12-19-2018, 07:27 AM

There was a time when you could punch out a group of Hare Krishna's and everyone had a good laugh - like in the movie "Airplane". Upstanding American parents would once hire "de-programmers" to rescue their children from the Moonie cult as law enforcement would look the other way to charges of "kidnapping". And of course we can't forget the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and his "Transcendental Meditation" cult as millions lined up to pay for their secret "mantra". The days of the hippie flower children and their quest for religion from shit hole squalor countries is largely over, but that hasn't stopped Satan from his relentless recruiting.

These days 40% of the Millenials don't even know that the infant in the nativity scenes across the country is the Baby Jesus, and now the Icelanders version of that "old time religion" are the gods Odin and Thor. It might be cold and inhospitable in Iceland, but Jesus has planned a warm place for them to spend eternity.

Iceland’s fastest growing religion will soon complete the first temple to Thor and Odin in 1000 years
Vilhelm Carlström 04 Jul 2018 4:56 PM

The Norse gods are making a strong comeback after a thousand years in the shadows. Outmaneuvered by Christianity around year 1000, Nordic paganism is now Iceland’s fastest growing religion. From 570 members in 2002, the ‘association of the faith of the Æsir’ – Ásatrúarfélagið – now numbers 3900 Icelanders, making it the largest non-Christian religion in the country.

“I don’t believe anyone believes in a one-eyed man who is riding about on a horse with eight feet,” High priest Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson told the Guardian. “We see the stories as poetic metaphors and a manifestation of the forces of nature and human psychology.”

The pantheistic religion appeals to modern individualism while upholding traditional Icelandic values like honesty, tolerance and respect towards the environment.

Although long in the making, the Ásatrúarfélagið’s first temple is finally expected to stand ready by the end of 2018. It is designed by Icelandic architect and member of the association Magnús Jensson and given a form to underscore a close relationship to earth, sky and sun. The temple will hold a maximum of 250 people for religious ceremonies and concerts.

Although the temple, called Hof Ásatrúarfélagsins, will be Iceland’s first in 1000 years it is likely not to be the last. The land was donated by the city of Reykjavik, and other municipalities have shown interest in having temples built, seeing perhaps the potential allure of tourism. Similarly, Denmark consecrated a temple called Valheim Hof to Odin for the first time in a millennium in 2016.

It's hard to understand why fake gods have such appeal. Everyone knows the Commandment from Exodus 20:3, "Thou Shalt Have no Other Gods.." Thor and Odin are the kind of other gods that are prohibited.

Maybe those Nordics think God will not notice they have violated Exodus 20:3. Have a good time in hell, Nordics.


Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

Well, that's going to be a waste of time: Praying to imaginary beings just because there are stories about them? Whatever next!

Look what happened to the Greeks and the Romans when they worshiped false gods - they're not doing very well now, are they?

I suppose that they want these invented "being" to do something for them - like make it warmer or give them more whales, or bigger igloos!

They'll soon change their minds when they discover that if you pray to something that's not there, nothing is going to change.

Ew. Whales! Someone ought to do something. Don't they also worship animistic sea goblins Sjóvættir I thought to myself? Visiting their official site to find out and sure enough I must include a warning before continuing:

REMOVE IMPRESSIONABLE TYPES BEFORE READING THIS
do not read out loud
.......YES - IT'S THAT BAD.......

















Quote:
The royal decree on the coat of arms is as follows: “The Icelandic coat of arms shall be a crowned shield charged with the flag of Iceland. The bearers of the shield are the country's four familiar guardian spirits


continues:
Quote:
a dragon, a vulture, a bull and a giant.”

Woodcarver Ríkarður Jónsson designed the coat of arms following a competition in which leading Icelandic artists including Jóhannes Kjarval took part. Bearing the shield are the four guardian spirits of Iceland, described by Snorri Sturluson in his Heimskringla:

“King Harald told a man versed in magic to travel to Iceland in a different shape and find out what he could learn there to tell him. The man set out in the shape of a whale


continues:
Quote:
And when he approached land he headed west along the north coast. He saw that all the mountains and hills were full of land spirits, some large and some small. Off Vopnafjörður he entered the fjord, intending to go ashore. Then a huge dragon came down along the valley with a train of serpents, insects and toads breathing poison over him. He fled and went westward off the coast as far as Eyjafjörður and went into the fjord there. Then a bird flew towards that was so great that its wings spread over the mountains on either side of the fjord, and many other birds with it, large and small. He left there and continued westwards, then turned south into Breiðafjörður, and headed for the fjord. A large bull came towards him there, waded into the sea and began to bellow menacingly. A band of land spirits followed it. He headed south from there around Reykjanes and tried to go ashore at Vikarsskeið. A mountain giant came towards him there with an iron staff in its hands and its head higher than the mountains, and many other giants were with it. From there he went eastwards the length of the land, but “there was nothing but sand and deserts, and surf off the shore, with such a vast sea between the parts of land,” he said, “that a longship could not cross it.”

These guardian spirits are the concept behind the shield bearers in the coat of arms from 1919.
