Vikings and the end of the World

Viking apocalypse due in less than 100 days

We have already survived numerous ‘end of days’ predictions, with the Mayan prophecy being the most recent, but the predictions of doom and gloom are not over yet. According to Norse mythology and Viking legend, the apocalypse is less than 100 days away .

Legend has it that the Norse God, Heimdallr, would blow the mythical Gjallerhorn to warn of the Viking apocalypse, also known as ‘Ragnarok’, which translates to ‘Doom of the Gods’. It is claimed that the so-called end of the world is due to arrive on 22 nd February, 2014, although it appears that this date is a bit of a publicity stunt by the Jorvik Viking Centre to celebrate their 30th Viking festival.

Norse mythology says that the god Odin will be killed by the wolf Fenrir and all of the other "creator" gods will fall. The world will then be born again and will be repopulated by two humans.

During the world's end, the sun's beams will become black and the weather will become treacherous. The wolf Skoll would devour the sun, and his brother Hati would eat the moon, causing stars to vanish from the sky and the Earth to be thrown into eternal darkness. According to one of the prophetic poems: "Brothers will fight and kill each other, sisters' children will defile kinship. It is harsh in the world, whoredom rife - an axe age, a sword age - shields are riven - a wind age, a wolf age - before the world goes headlong. No man will have mercy on another."

According to Norse legend, the apocalypse is due to be preceded by the winter of winters. Vikings believed that three freezing winters would follow each other with no summers in between. All morality would disappear and fights would break out all over the world, signalling the beginning of the end. Well we haven’t seen the three continuous winters yet so perhaps there is hope for humanity after all.

Im really interested in this version of apocolypse i dont think the gods themselves should be taken literally i think if you look at what the gods do its saying when man is at war and peace is killed it will happen. From my translations of gods to what the gods are in charge of yellowstone national park will blow up. The underground chasm of fire powered by the fire giant or a solar flare? Sets off the yellowstone caldera at the point where hvelgarin?- a place where the root of the ygyrin? Tree of life touches springs bubble and boil and it touches the source where rivers form, has to be yellowstone, the serpent is the storms in the sea releasing the wolves (wind?) causing floods, taking back the land, tidal surges. It also mentions the primordial echo of yrin? God of ice? Just had a polar vortex in WHERe? America!!! Look into it youll see what i mean if u think the vikings may not have know how to explain it so used storys as they could do geographical mapping. Just an idea

So basically a comet will hit. Ison?

Sounds fun ..

On the lighter side, Vikings on the History channel was really first class. Great series. Hope all life on earth is not extinguished before I find out what happens in season two.
