The book details the complete and comprehensive history of the White Race, spanning 350 centuries of tumultuous events. This is their incredible story - of vast visions, empires, achievements, triumphs against staggering odds, reckless blunders, crushing defeats and stupendous struggles. Most importantly of all, revealed in this work is the one true cause of the rise and fall of the world’s greatest empires - that all civilizations rise and fall according to their racial homogeneity and nothing else - a nation can survive wars, defeats, natural catastrophes, but not racial dissolution. This is a revolutionary new view of history and of the causes of the crisis facing modern Western Civilization, which will permanently change your understanding of history, race and society.
Chapter 5: Born of the Black Sea - The Indo-European Invasions
PART II - THE ORIGINAL EUROPEAN RELIGION
When reviewing the Indo-European gods, or as they became, the northern European gods, it becomes obvious just how deeply rooted these gods and beliefs are amongst the White peoples to this very day.
Very many of the original Indo-European gods' names were either taken over by Christianity (Hel, the name of the goddess of the underworld was, for example, plagiarized directly by Christianity) or were kept in various forms, so that even five of the seven days of the modern week are named after them, as detailed below.
That this is so should not be surprising: these gods were the main religion of the White people of Europe for at least six thousand years, compared to the less than one thousand years that Christianity has existed in northern Europe to date.
The chief characteristics of this original White religion and its array of gods were:
- The world itself was the product of the great world-tree, Yggdrasil, which reached through all time and space. Yggdrasil was however always under attack from an evil serpent, Nidhogg. The fountain of Mimir, source of hidden wisdom, lay under one of the roots of the tree;
- Worship of any of these gods was usually conducted in the open - often near holy trees or within arrangements of stones, with the Indo-Europeans using and building even more megalith sites in Europe for this purpose;
- Odin (also known Odhinn; called Woden by the Anglo-Saxons and Wodan or Woutan by the Germans) was the king of the gods. His two black ravens, Huginn ("Thought") and Muninn ("Memory"), flew all over the world to report on the doings of men and gods alike;
- Odin's court was in the great citadel of Valhalla, where all brave warriors went after dying in battle. When Odin himself took to travel he used his eight-footed steed, Sleipner; armed himself with his spear, Gungnir, and his most precious jewel, the ring called Draupner;
- Odin was also the god of wisdom, poetry, and magic, and he sacrificed an eye for the privilege of drinking from Mimir, the fountain of wisdom. Odin had three wives;
- Thor was the eldest son of Odin and the strongest of the gods. He had a magic hammer, which he threw with the aid of iron gloves and which always returned to him;
- Odin's other son was Balder (or Baldur), the god of light and joy, was killed after the evil god Loki tricked Baldur's blind twin brother, Hoder, the god of darkness, into killing him; Baldur was god of the sun;
- Frei or Freyr was the son of the fertility god Njord. Freyr was the god of fruitfulness, prosperity, and peace and the bestower of sunlight and rain. He wakened the earth from the long sleep of winter, and prayers for a bountiful harvest were addressed to him. Frey was the patron god of Sweden; his chief shrine was at Uppsala. His sister was Freya;
- Freya or Freyja was the goddess of love, fertility, and beauty, sometimes identified as the goddess of battle and death. Blond, blue-eyed, and beautiful, Freya traveled on a golden-bristled boar or in a chariot drawn by cats. In Germany, Freya was sometimes identified with Frigg, the wife of Odin;
- Frigg or Frigga, was the goddess of the sky and wife of Odin, the chief of the gods. She was worshipped as the protector of married love and housewives. A bunch of keys was her symbol;
- Tiu was the god of war and battles. He is represented as having only one hand, with some stories having it because he can only give victory to one side, or because it was bitten off by the wolf Fernis;
- Hel was the goddess of the dead. She dwelt beneath one of the three roots of the sacred ash tree Yggdrasil and was the daughter of Loki, the spirit of mischief or evil. Odin condemned Hel into the underworld and placed her in charge there, never to emerge again;
- Loki was a giant who represented evil and was possessed of great knowledge and cunning. Loki and Hel, goddess of the underworld, would lead the forces of evil against the gods, in the final battle between good and evil, the "Ragnarok", or end of the days;
- Besides these major deities, there were a number of other lesser gods who were just as popular from time to time: Hermod, Bragi, and Forseti; Idun, Nanna, and Sif;
- The Valkyries were a band of warrior-maidens who were sometimes portrayed as Odin's own daughters, they included Brunhilde (later to become a central character in a Wagner opera). The Valkyries helped Odin choose which warriors deserved to go to Valhalla after dying in battle. At Valhalla, the warriors would spend their time fighting or feasting until "Ragnarok."
FIVE DAYS OF THE WEEK NAMED AFTER THE NORTHERN GODS
Tuesday is named after Tiu, the god of war; - this day is still called Tisdag in Sweden and Tirsdag in Denmark. Wednesday is named after Wodan, or Wotan / Odin himself (Wodansday). In Sweden and Denmark, the day is called Onsdag.
Thursday is directly named after Thor's name (Thorsday), while his mother, Frigg, is remembered in the day called Friday (Frigg's day). Baldur, god of the sun and light, is remembered in Sunday.
While the name of the day "Saturday" is not derived from Northern Gods, it is however drawn from the equally pagan and equally Indo-European pre-Christian Roman celebration of Saturnalia. Only the day "Monday", or Day of the Moon, does not have an overtly pre-Christian origin.
