S&F!
My dad's side of the family is Norwegian, and I still have my Norsk last name.
I didn't know anything about Ragnarok actually, until finishing watching one of my all time favorite animes, "Soul eater." In which all it's characters names are based on some other religious, myth, or whatever, from all over the world. A bunch of them I already knew, but the demon swordsman and his weapon Ragnarok. I had to google that name, and finding it was from viking background I was quit interested.

Good. I can't wait to bathe in the blood of my enemies as Mjolnir cracks in the skies! In the mean time, I gotta run to Coop Obs, they've got a nice deal on Pizza Grandiosa...

Well, you could be, genetically, somewhere in your ancestry, unless you know for sure otherwise.

Oh Nuts !! , you're right ...I'm British...who knows who my ancestors are




Do you crave glögg and herring, perhaps a fur gilet? plaited hair?

Now you come to mention it ... Yes !! .... especially the plaited hair on a girl named Helga

Personally I don't see what all the fuss is about. Everyone knows the Ultima Weapon is far superior to Rangnarok anyway. Wait... Are we talking about the same thing?

well if today is Ragnarok, then it had better hurry up. only under 2.5 hours left of the day.


Not sure but it sounds like the feast would continue for 100 days after the end.




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.


Clearly all made up to make some money and have some feasting!

Still i find it very interesting that people and Movies, TV shows are so focused lately on the old gods much more.

Just to put a few of you straight. They were never any Vikings they were Norsemen. When Norsemen went raiding or trading they were said to go Viking. A norse term for going out into the world for adventure or profit. Also The Ring Cycle by Wagner was supposedly about Aryans not Norsemen.

Whilst Scandinavian 'raiders' didn't collectively associate themselves as a group as such, nor indeed naming themselves collectively, 'viking' is Old Norse translated as 'raid' and 'vikingr' meaning 'raiders', hence the name for the Norse 'raiders' became known collectively as Viking.

Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyries' refers to the Valkyries of Norse Mythology.

Uggh...How did they know I was going to the wild game feed today. As always, my stomach will be rumbling and I'll spend a lot of time sitting on the throne again as the lava flows out of my butt. I suppose they will have wolf this year since there was a hunt here in michigan. That will probably make me sick and I'll not be going outside to see the moon, I've never eaten wolf before, only coyote.

Not the end of the world though.

A Sanskrit scholar I know says India has nearly the same myth... I don't think he meant the Kali Yuga, but will ask for poop and chortles provided the wolves abstain from eatin' moon, sun and Odin.

Gotta love the Norse for bleak, bad butted behemoths and bedlam.

Where are they getting 2014 from?!

As far as the other stuff, I read it like Christians read Revelation; with allegory and long time tables. For example, the serpent losing the tail, to me, symbolizes an actual evolution of some early sea serpent species. The rest of the signs we can see slowly unfolding just like those in Revelation.

Prophets, Shamans, Sidh, Seiðr, Witches, whatever you want to call them and whatever religion they represented, many of them would have had a lot to talk about if they met face-to-face and compared notes.

There is no doubt a Universal melting of ideology in religion, far and wide. Perhaps this points to something in time or to cycles generally, or symbolic wisdom, or all, and more.

The alleged date for Ragnarok as today seems to have been chosen by the Jorvik Festival people in Yorkshire. Looks like they aren't taking it too seriously. Though things like the giant Oar fish being washed up in CA, solar activity and winter not ending at the end of feast time, are suggested.

www.jorvik-viking-festival.co.uk...


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. As Jolablot will take place on 22nd February it seems that Ragnarok is due to take place at the same time!

Wagner's Ring Cycle was based on what was then believed to be Teutonic myth. It was derived largely from surviving Norse mythology.

I guess it depends where you are. Here in the UK it is 19:12 so a few hours of 22nd yet.

That said, I think this particular 'prediction' was not doom porn really, Ragnarok is a known part of Norse Mythology and not some recently hypothesised idea based on a calender, and it appears the guys at Jorvik who seem to have initiated it, aren't taking it too seriously.
