    The Coming Viking Apocalypse

    Viking apocalypse due in less than 100 days | Ancient Origins

    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’. According to calculations, the so-called end of the world is due to arrive on 22nd February, 2014.

    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."

    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    I don't think any amount of prepping is going to save us from that!

    I think Thor also dies, right after he slays the world serpent Jormundgander, but the serpent managed to bite him a nice poison bite. (I have a very lovely handmade serpent pendant I picked up in Scotland, which prompted that research.)

    You forgot to mention, they have to have Lord O's permission to destroy the world first. He's too busy trying to explain Obamacare failure to worry about minor things like to world coming to an end.

    I suppose I can toss out that Mayan Calendar I've been saving just in case it was a tad off.

    The Viking version sounds like the roll out of a very unpopular health care system.

    We do however appreciate the warning.
