Like when Conan told Crom to go to hell if he wouldn't satisfy the barbarian's plea for revenge, he essentially plunged headfirst into the void and then came back from the search, having found revenge as it was there for him to take. So, it could be said that actually Crom was that revenge itself, Conan just had to quest for it and to create that value.
    You have misunderstood my position, besides values, principles and ethics are merely human assets, as ideas or forces shaping and determining a quality of behaviour intrinsical to a population, a race even and certainly matching the inner and unpenetrable, individuating and mysterious core, or quintessence of a given person...something that permeates the entire nature of a being, barring any conception or definition...and this very essence could be encapsulated in notions of souvereignity, centrality or a polar function and stability or ataraxia, the way I described in my thread on Epicurean Friendship:

    http://www.forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=12144

    And this central force acts without causality nor by interference of some higher powers, which as puppet masters carry through a program and subjugate a being; on the contrary, it exists in opposition to derived power that always has to be re-acertained and claimed by force and coercion as with the delusial idoles from the people of the Book or the Heathens, and set things in motion spontanious and free without the requirement of getting itself into the action...

    The concept of heathens is fascinating to me. It is the believe of our forefathers of our race. Therefore it might even is the optimal religion for our people.
    We need a religion that makes us strong and is true to our race.

    Sorry, but this is not a thread to discuss Christianity. Start another thread about it here if you want, KraftAkt.

    Reality is reality, whether we perceive it to be or not.
    Exactly. Whether one believes or not in the gods does not dictate their existence or non-existence.
    "Yet Thomas Jefferson’s interest in the Saxon heritage went far beyond matters of philology. He held that the forward movement of British settlement in North America was a continuation of the original migration of Hengist and Horsa. It was all part of the vigorous expansion of a superior group of people. Jefferson even went so far as to suggest that the form of government being adopted in the emerging United States represented a restoration of the sublime Anglo-Saxon principles..."

    They are real. Is Odin a physical man in the clouds? No. Is he an entinity we can understand fully with the right wisdom? Yes. Does he exist? YES.

    I don`t know, I don`t care. If there is god or gods, I will live this life my way. And if its a wrong way, then hell with it.

    Like a guy the other day in the pub said..."If you cannot find the truth at the bottom of a pint, you will never find it."

    So damn true.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
