Or simply because it's known as a good luck charm aswell. I prefer the idea of it being a spit in the face to organised religion though.

Sadly enough, brutally murdering Christians kinda gets you thrown in jail for a fairly long time.

I'd totally do it otherwise though >.>

I think it's kinda funny that Snorra-Edda was originally written as a school book, by a christian, to teach christians about Ásatrú about 200-300 years after the conversion. What's even more amazing is that the book is not biased and doesn't show this religion in a negative light, being it's written by a christian.

I don't know, do what your gradnfather did that you are so proud of.

I just find statments such as yours a bit off, that's all. Your herritage, how's it yours. You were just born there, that's all. You have no control as to where you are born nor you ever had any input into what "your forfathers" did. So why be proud? Me on the other hand, I picked my van and feel that work that I've done to it gives me right to be proud of it. Get it?

Yes, I see what you mean. It's a good point. I was born and bred in Iceland and I'm just proud of the history and heritage of my country because I feel that since I'm of Icelandic origin, the history of the country belongs to me, it's part of who I am because this is where I come from.

I'm proud that my country has a long history, I'm proud that it has the oldest parliament in the world, I'm proud of my language and I'm proud that the Sagas and Snorra-Edda came from the same place as I do. I'm proud to be a part of this, because I am, whether I want to or not, because I'm Icelandic.

Is any of this making any sense?

I doubt thats true based on the readings I did. Then again im not the most well informed here...

What do any of you think about some saying that Ragnarok in the Edda was possibly modified by christian beliefs(from Snorri)? In the end, the "demon" from the south, Surtur, comes to war with a legion to destroy everything (to make it short). Is it a coincidence that as far as history goes the religion of christianity came from the south and almost annihilated whats known as Asatru today? Muspelheim could easily be compared to a desert since its the land of fire... Surtur and is legion to Christianity. At least figuratively... Maybe its just me... But both story are really similar...

What do you think about that?
