    I'm sure our forefathers would have offered an explanation to this, but unfortunately everything wasn't written down.

    Very interesting paralells you are mentioning in your post, by the way.
    In the book Tyr Vol. 3 there is an article named 'The End Times According to the Indo-European Worldview: Textual Selections From Four Traditions with Commentary', comparing Indian texts on the Kali Yuga with various textual survivals from the Nordic, Celtic and Greek traditions, showing interesting similarities.

    Absolutely. Those Tyr volumes are awesome. I think they should be read by everyone here. Too bad they don't come out twice a year or so. Traditionalism is a conerstone to preservation. "Ride the Tiger" should be read by all as well as "Revolt Against the Modern World". There are also writings by Alan DeBenoist "On Being a Pagan", vital reading imho. Those publications are just about the best i've seen of this era.
    "The mystery and secret of Wotan is not that "knowledge" of him is passed along through clandestine cults or even through the re-discovery of old books and texts--but rather that such knowledge is actually encoded in a mysterious way in the DNA, in the very genetic material, of those who are descended from him." - Secret of the Gothick God of Darkness

    "So Valhalla was possibly a Christian influence and many of the myths of Norse paganism were influenced by Christianity as well? Interesting." [/QUOTE]

    Norse "Paganism" is the diametrical opposite of Christianity. Take away Snorri and some of the poetic confusion and fragmentation and you have a solid reality that accurately portrays the evolution of the Folkway from prehistory down to the present.

    Read the Torah and the New Teatament and the Koran for comparison! Compare the hate filled frozen dogma of these cults with the living evolving Folkway of the Teutonic Nations.
