Thread all cleaned up and refreshed ...
Continued from http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=75026

In the absence of any contrary evidence Thor must be accepted as the designer of the universe. Prove it wrong.

ALL HAIL THOR!

For those who have not been keeping track of the date tomorrow is the big day and I think Thor would like the proper behavior.

No.
But Tor are pretty simple and pragmatic, unlike for example the brooder Odin. Thor was worshiped primarily of simple people - he's the peasants and the thralls god and was the most popular of the gods. Thor is the god who brings order out of chaos - it is not for nothing that he is called "Humanity's protector".

Oden is also unique in that he has over 200 names. In addition to linguistic equivalents as attributed to Odin a long list of titles, nicknames and kennings.

Hell Thor.

btw Odins day is Wednesday.

That's why we prepare for Thor's day then and now we are deep into Thor's day.

Here is a depiction "Odin disguised as a Traveller" from 1914.

So...

This thread sequence started, I thought, as a joke twitting a certain, rather outspoken religionist that posted here a while back.

Now, I find out that there STILL is a following of the 'old' religion, and it is making a comeback...

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/feb/02/iceland-temple-norse-gods-1000-years

Either you people are doing it as a joke, which might offend adherents of this religion...

OR, you people are serious and are proselytizing..

Either way, does it really have a place here??

Something to think about.

Asatru could easily be political.
To day many associate Asatru whith White Nationalism and nazism.
That's sadly true. Both in Europé and America you could see it.
However your link from Iceland and Ásatrúarfélagið shows that there are Asa goods believers who are not.
There also doesn't seem to by any religious controversies.
