    If this is directed towards me I can only assume that you are conflating Odalism with racism, which is an unfair assumption. Nationalism should not be confused with racism, either, I do not believe in a "white" America but I do not agree with importing immigrants (even Europeans) until every able-bodied American is employed and every American citizen thriving. If I can clear anything else up ask away.

    Even if I ignore any possible racial overtones, I am appalled at the absolute stupidity and the total ignorance of population genetics of whoever created this abomination. I would suggest you do some intensive reading using our search engine.

    Would you say that all Muslims are terrorists? Your response is on the same level of critical thinking. Perhaps you should add an argument in there instead of an ad-hom attack (the mark of ignorance).

    The creator would be Varg Vikernes, a Norwegian neo-nazi and convicted murderer.

    Varg Vikernes is not a neo-Nazi, you are willingly posting flat-out lies.

    I have no answers as to what happens when you die.
    That said, I refuse to cling to fairy-tales to ease my fear of death.
    I believe in science and reason.
    The more I look at mainstream religion, the more skeptical I get.
    Even the dates of the birth and crucifixion of "Jesus" are nothing more than the spring equinox and winter solstice.
    Even hallmarks associated with Judaism like circumcision and the Ten commandments were just copied from the ancient Egyptians.
    The "Jesus" myth is quite similar to Zeus/Jupiter and his demigod son of a mortal women stories, and would have been very familiar to Greeks and Romans.

    Well, he's an admirer of Hitler and has been on record peddling racial pseudoscience & promoting Nordicist eugenics for decades. The label captures his ideology quite well, even if the man himself doesn't like it.

    Being pro-European is akin to Nazism now? We will have to agree to disagree but labeling anyone that chooses Neopaganism as a racist only does a disservice to everyone, for it is not based on fact but propaganda and feelings.

    Admiration of Hitler is akin to Nazism. Well unless it's a grudging kind of admiration as expressed by Stalin perhaps.

    I don't know what 'pro-European' means.

    I do not know his views on Hitler but admiring someone is not akin to Nazism, as I could say that I admire Che Guevara but that does not make me a Marxist. "Pro-European" simply means favoring a shared heritage the same as someone could be called "Afrocentric". We may be beating our heads against a wall here.

    Let's see, we're talking about someone who (i) subscribes to highly pseudoscientific theories of European autochthony, (ii) promotes eugenics to increase the numbers of blond, blue-eyed people, (iii) looks up to Hitler, Himmler, Quisling. I'd think most normal people wouldn't object to the neo-nazi label.

    I'm not trying to insult you, but do you have Asperger's per chance?

    Look, I apologize. Still, I find it baffling that you'd be surprised your following of Vikernes might just raise some eyebrows.

    It's impossible to debate the merits of his ideology when there are none. Last I checked the man believed Scandinavians derive 99% of their ancestry from Neanderthals. What did you expect in terms of discourse?

    Christianity is a copy/paste of Mithraism (adopted by the Roman militia) and Zoroastrism. Just check Zoroaster and his father Ahura-Mazda.

    It was a poem from K.Palamas " the grave"
    The problem was not the poem but my age... I was child at the begining of spelling to read...


    My parents were not educated (no read, no write) they think that the best for me and my sister was to buy an big encyclopaedia...(but that one was more orintated for literature) I suppose they think that is the best for us.
    Anyway
    the first day me and my sister take from one book,..


    Kaboom...
    I was crying all night, I remember my mom trying to relief me with her kisses and her hugs...when I was asking -"Why ?" , I feared that I lose some day my mom... but i did not fear -cause i could't think,- mine death.


    My mother couldn't answer me... and my sister insisting me to shut up.
    It was a shocking night which i still remember but not the only one... the years after.

    but that's a story of another thread

    In my opinion Christianity is a Frankenstein monster of plagiarism and assimilation of local converted cultures and their native faiths.
    It may very well early on have taken on major aspects of Zoroastrism and the Mithraic mysteries.
    Catholicism the largest denotation of Christianity has morphed into something very different and is more akin to Neopaganism.

    hmm

    TO BE LED? OR NOT TO BE LED?

    Rene Descartes says 'cogito ergo sum' I think up, so I exist

    Albert Camus centuries after speaks about Absurd, I never understand what Absurd is
    BUT I find him (his life and writtens) to add something to Descartes, the revolt,
    I REVOLT, SO I CAN THINK up, SO I EXIST,

    so for Descartes is just I THINK UP, to exist
    why Camus puts I revolt? and revolt against who?

    for the same reason we all do.

    so some of us choose not to be LED

    the then starts all,
    and among all was Parmenidis of Elea
    and then ,, and then to Nemesis

    as for christinity?
    the roots is not Mithras, neither Judean,
    maybe older forms
    But modern christianity is nothing more than the eternal fight
    of Epikouros vs Stoics, on how you should live.
    maybe the first christian Emperror was not Constantine, but Marcus Aurelius
    as for the son of God,
    is the old trick of Chrysippos,
    God make world,
    it was so perfect,
    so he decide to live his creation from inside,
    but he cheated the rules that he put in his creation,
    so Nemesis awaits him, if he wants to exit his own creation,
    cause he shamed his creation, Αιδως

    at John 1:1 we see the word ΛΟΓΟΣ logos
    John was a Stoic one?

    offcourse the poor minds, are always Blessed and Happy

    Yikes, good to know about this Germanic Donomination. BacktotheForest, you have a right to switch religions but you might want to do your homework on the spiritual leaders and their reputation before practicing a new religion. Fortunately some Germanic spiritual leaders have a reputation of being Anti-Fascists so there are some alternatives. Here are some websites who have publicly denounced racism. Odin'svolk has been a useful source to reading about the Germanic tribes.

    Some people cannot believe in the supernatural and some people must believe in something. In absence of positive beliefs they add harmful ideas, like the American neo-liberalism. (haha j/k)

    I was raised protestant Christian but moved away from it during college. It is hard to be controlled and told "no" as a hot blooded young man. The reasons are mostly selfish. I didn't want to give time, money, etc to something rather boring.

    However, I do acknowledge the practical benefits of a "good" church. It provides a positive atmosphere to raise a family with like-minded families. The culture is one of generosity, love, and positive fellowship. Not all churches are "good" churches. A "good" church not only takes care of themselves but also others. Charity by churches makes a significant impact on the world.

    I don't have to attend church but it does make me feel good to be involved socially in this way, to make a positive difference in the lives of others. And what of children and others who "need" to believe in something? That is why I go.

    I called myself a Christian, then an atheist, but now I attend Christian churches once more. There is something to be said for traditional wisdom and societal norms and I appreciate it more as I age. There are so many varied views within the large branch of Christianity that it can be daunting. It's inevitable that there are some branches worse than others and even some bad churches in the good branches. Each church is the sum of its congregation and led by certain leaders. I could say similar things about other religions if they were the majority of the society in which I found myself.

    I'm fascinated by human superstition.

    I am not religious but I do have my own belief system. It comes from becoming more scientific minded and then leaving science itself to go beyond further.
