I mentioned this recently on another thread. Doing a search there is a 'doom porn' and 'party' thread for the alleged apocalypse.

This is a thread because it is TODAY that is the alleged 'Ragnarok' Viking Apocalypse.

Though I have studied Norse mythology to some extent and many years of Runes, I do not believe Ragnarok (certainly not today if at all)

Will the world end in 100 days? Sounding of ancient trumpet in York warns of Viking apocalypse on 22 February 2014
Legend has it that on this day, the god Odin will be killed by the wolf Fenrir
The soil and the sky will be stained with poison and the sea will rear up
Prior to the apocalypse, three freezing winters would follow each other
The sound of the horn is supposed to call the sons of Odin to the battlefield, where Odin will ultimately be killed

If Vikings were here today, the sounding of a distinctive horn in York would have created chaos.
The ancient instrument, blown last night, signalled exactly 100 days until the end of the world, according to Norse mythology.
Legend has it that the Norse God, Heimdallr, would blow the mythical Gjallerhorn to warn of the Viking apocalypse, also known as 'Ragnarok'.

Ha, if only they were so humble for such an admission.

More like they would say ''we told you so, we just named it something else, see how right we are!''

If only Brad Pitt had been cast as Thor and the recent movie better made, I would be joining the Thor party.

As it's 'Ragnarok' Viking Apocalypse does that mean I'm OK if I'm not a Viking ? ... because I'm not a Viking

With all that Wagnerian opera hammering away outside, I can't wait for the world to come to an end!

Well, you could be, genetically, somewhere in your ancestry, unless you know for sure otherwise. (Do you crave glögg and herring, perhaps a fur gilet? plaited hair?)

That said, some guy in Yorkshire blowing a real horn probably isn't the same as Heimdallr blowing the mythical Gjallerhorn so we are probably all safe from Ragnarok, for now anyhow.

There is Wagnerian Opera in the background? Would that be literal or metaphorical?

Are you in some Ride of the Valkyries drive in or maybe just all those horned helmets and trumpets are causing such a sensation.

Here is some for the erm 'unenlightened' (I am not a Nazi, just incase)

While that sounds like a fun day and all I am not really partial to Viking food or music so I'll pass.
When the Roman Catholics,have there's they're serving chicken Alfredo and tiramisu and wine. Lots and lots of wine.

Mainstream religion has been discredited

Now is the time too Deny ignorance & pledge yourself to the teachings of the Ragnarök .

Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Ragnarök is. You must experience it for yourself

The Vikings have mjød. Lots of mjød. What more could you ask for than a drinking horn full of the stuff?

Will the world end in 100 days? Sounding of ancient trumpet in York warns of Viking apocalypse on 22 February 2014
Legend has it that on this day, the god Odin will be killed by the wolf Fenrir
The soil and the sky will be stained with poison and the sea will rear up

If Vikings were here today, the sounding of a distinctive horn in York would have created chaos.
The ancient instrument, blown last night, signalled exactly 100 days until the end of the world, according to Norse mythology.
Legend has it that the Norse God, Heimdallr, would blow the mythical Gjallerhorn to warn of the Viking apocalypse, also known as 'Ragnarok'.

Ragnarok, which translates to ‘Doom of the Gods’, is due to be preceded by the winter of winters.
Vikings believed, prior to the apocalypse, three freezing winters would follow each other with no summers in between.
All morality would disappear and fights would break out all over the world, signalling the beginning of the end.
The wolf Skoll would devour the sun, and his brother Hati would eat the moon, causing stars to vanish from the sky and the Earth to be thrown into eternal darkness.
Norse mythology experts have calculated that Vikings believed this will take place on February 22, 2014.
On this day, the god Odin will be killed by the wolf Fenrir and the other ‘creator’ gods.

There will be huge earthquakes, the sea will rear up and the soil and the sky will be stained with poison.
The sound of the horn is supposed to call the sons of Odin to the battlefield, where Odin will ultimately be killed.
After his death, the Earth was foretold to sink into the sea, paving the way for a new utopian world with endless supplies.
Danielle Daglan from the Norvik Viking Centre told MailOnline that a number of recent events spoken about in the legends of Ragnarok led them to believe that the end of the world may well be imminent.
The legend states that ‘the first to notice shall be man, brother will fight brother and all the boundaries that exist shall crumble.’
‘The idea that “boundaries that exist shall crumble” could be said to be about the Internet age, where you can communicate with millions of people simultaneously around the world thanks to the global rise of social media,’ said Ms Daglan.
Viking tradition also believes that a vast winter will appear before the apocalypse.

‘There are predictions that we are heading into a mini-ice age thanks to a fall in solar flare activity - what is a mini-ice age but several winters rolled into one?’ said Ms Daglan.
Another part of the legend claims that the Midgard Serpent, named Jormungand, shall free itself from its tail and rise up from the ocean.
Ms Dagland points to the two huge fish which appeared on a beach in California last month.
The giant oarfish were dead when they washed up on land, and some scientists believe they came ashore to die because they are ‘in distress’.
‘Traditionally, the Viking festival of Jolablot marked the end of the winter - if this winter truly does not end, then that feast may be given over to Ragnarok instead,’ said Ms Dagland.
The Jorvik Viking Centre predicted that Ragnarok would occur on 22 February because this is the end of the feast of Jolablot.
While not a scientific conclusion, they claim that Vikings loved to feast and wouldn't want to miss this event. For this reason, they argue that Vikings would believe the world would end in 100 days.
The end of the world is coincidently the start of the grand finale of the Viking festival in York.
‘Following a study published in 2010 that bearded men are more trustworthy than those without, we’re also looking for fantastic displays of facial hair, so that we can identify those with the potential to take us into the brave new world that is foretold to follow Ragnarok,’ said Danielle Daglan director of the JORVIK Viking Festival.
‘In the last couple of years, we’ve had predictions of the Mayan apocalypse, which passed without incident, and numerous other dates where the end of the world has been pencilled in by seers, fortune tellers and visionaries,’ she added.
‘But the sound of the horn is possibly the best indicator yet that the Viking version of the end of the world really will happen on 22 February next year.’

Iam a "Viking" from Denmark
There is NO DATE GIVEN anywhere in Norse Mythology, they guess february 22, because it is the end of a feast, and the year 2014, why?? In denmark, it hasnt exactly been a fimbul winther this year, and they only pick this year, well cause this is now we live... But yes, allways exciting to read about

Doom, DOOM, DOOOOM!! I KEED, I KEED. In all seriousness, I wasn't aware that they had narrowed down the date on this one. Regardless I'm sure it will come and go much like y2k, 2012, heavens gate, the rapture, etc, etc... Funny thing though, when I typed that first "Doom" at the beginning of this reply, for some strange reason my I-Phone autocorrected it to "Soon"... But what does it all mean???
Maybe my morning coffee will put it all in perspective. One things for damn sure, there's no way I'm going to Ragnarok without copious amounts of caffeine.

Nice!

It's a tv show too? hmmm

I would perhaps throw in a possible translation of the 'prophesy' with the ''serpent rising from the sea'' as a tsunami, ''the wolf'' being evil / unscrupulous governments etc and ''Odin'' representing good /nature. The smoke and no moon could be pollution and the winters, low sun activity. All of which we have experienced since the creation of the idea of 'Ragnarok'.

Here is a short version of the end of the world. Solti tends to hurry things a bit so it's only four hours long:

Only 4 hours, 'Wagner lite'! Might be good cure for insomniacs.
