When using an automatic translator, Danish comes out much better if first translated to Swedish. I was reading an article recently that was originally
in Danish but I translated to Swedish to make reading easier knowing Swedish stands a better chance of being coherent when translated. My fiancee
decided she wanted to read it (it was a newish discovery regarding Pompeii, maybe?) and so I used Google translate to switch to English so I didn't
have to translate a rather long article for her. Anyway, almost perfect translation with a single grammatical error.

I do believe there were civilizations on earth LONG before us that were wiped out in one way or another, possibly related to ETs or capable of space
travel. I don't, though, think Mjölnir has anything to do with any of that. The mythology and things related (runes and whatnot) began around
200-300AD with prototypical carvings and paintings only really going back to between 700-600BC. The 12th century Eddas only really address the
mythology going back as far as the first century AD. Then there's Thor's hammer vs Hercules' club. I don't thing it represents a space ship or defense
system (a club), it represents clubbing the crap out of people much like Thor's weapon.
Then there are the problems with the name. There are 2 schools of thought on this. One is the lightning or smashing from the sky which is related to
Russian and Welsh interpretations. The Russian word molniya and the Welsh mellt which are both roughly "lightning". In Old Norse the hammer, though,
is called a hamarr which is roughly equivalent to stone or rock or could be streched to "stone tool".
Then there's the Latin and Slavic root words that I personally agree with. The Slavic possible root is "molot" and the Latin root is "malleus" both of
which roughly translate to the modern English "mallet".
Now, disclaimer. I haven't delved deeply into Norse mythology in quite a while so you might want to look into these. My dates and root words may be
slightly off but you get the point. And as I was trying to say before I went off on a tirade, 700-600BC is much less mysterious (in my eyes, anyway)of
a time time than say 10,000 BC which I personally think is more accurate for the Egyptian culture and megaliths than 4000 years ago. I think if there
were something to do with ETs or a space program, it would be much more well documented by a religion and stories 2700 years old as opposed to 10000
Is there a possibility that they WERE referring to a space weapon that was learned of during the migration period from another culture? Certainly,
anything is possible. I just don't think it's likely. Either way, my family is all from Denmark, Norway, Northern Germany and Sweden so I wear a
Mjölnir pendant always
