Norse mythology is much cooler
Recently I've discovered that Norse mythology is much cooler that any monotheistic mythology.
There are several gods, all of which are much more badass than Yahweh. Titans, elves, dwarves, dark elves, the whole thing is like an ancient Lord of the rings (not to mention that the phrase "Middle-earth" was stolen from Norse legends.)

The gods are not so much concerned with humans, they have their own issues, and battles. Unlike the anti-social and ever jealous monotheistic god. You can more respect a god who defeats titans than a one that needs 3 commandments just to satisfy his jealousy.

Also, in times of danger, who would you pray to? A normal guy who preached for 32 years and was pitifully nailed to a cross, or to a 3 meters tall ripped warrior with a freakin' hammer??

SO what so you think? are we converting, or what?Big Grin

They recently released a very good documentary on the subject. It was really good but I didn't understand why Nathalie Portman was in it.

Peace and Love and Empathy,

Yeah, Norse Mythology is cool, and I'm not talking about Marvel Comics version of Thor Tongue, but still I prefer Greek Mythology over Norse Mythology hehe.

Norse mythology has great metal bands, unlike any other Big Grin

Exactly. Do Greek Gods have Viking death metal bands? I think not. And if they did, what would lame ass Athenian death metal be about? Smart people, taking ten years to defeat one measly city and wrestling naked? L4M3!
