A God-Fearing People – Against The Pretension That One Ought Not Perhaps Fear An Indo-European God

We had recently seen a claim from a prominent American witch that seemed to suggest it was improper to have "fear" of Gods.  As they put it:  "Not really something considered to be a healthy trait in a relationship - divine or otherwise." We could say quite a bit about this, but let's just stick … Continue reading A God-Fearing People – Against The Pretension That One Ought Not Perhaps Fear An Indo-European God

Bad Theology And Bad Linguistics – On ‘Ocean Keltoi’ attempting to radically redefine Njordr & Skadi to fit a decidedly modern agenda

Earlier today our attention was drawn to this tweet, from a well-known religious commentator / youtuber. https://twitter.com/OceanKeltoi/status/1544028045073424385 This isn't just Bad Theology. It's also Bad Linguistics. How? Take a look at "Herakles" / "Hercules". Root of name is Hera. Does this make Herakles somehow a 'really' female deific? I think not. More to the point … Continue reading Bad Theology And Bad Linguistics – On ‘Ocean Keltoi’ attempting to radically redefine Njordr & Skadi to fit a decidedly modern agenda

On The Ill-Considered Choice Of ‘Angrboda’ Of Videogame ‘God of War’ As Vector For “Young Black Woman” Representation

We have had a few people contact us in relation to .. well, a certain video-game franchise dipping its toe (evidently in kicking format) into Nordic mythology. Now, I have never played a God of War game and I have no intention to do so. But I saw this comment from one of the key … Continue reading On The Ill-Considered Choice Of ‘Angrboda’ Of Videogame ‘God of War’ As Vector For “Young Black Woman” Representation

On Bowing To Gods – AND Drinking With Them !

I've had this image - and its underlying sentiment - on my mind for a few days now. It's something that often comes up in Western (neo-)pagan circles, and represents multiple layers of fundamental misapprehension about Indo-European religion. Indeed, it is very much a modern take - reflective of modern prejudices, (mis-)perceptions, and hangups - masquerading … Continue reading On Bowing To Gods – AND Drinking With Them !

The Indo-European Death And Resurrection Show – A Remarkable Persistence Even At The Periphery Of Modern (Myth)Understanding

The recent Pew Research Forum analysis of religion in India makes for interesting reading. One point which has attracted some surprise is the finding that apparently 'only' 40% of Hindus really believe in Reincarnation (as compared, as a point of interest, to 27% of Indian Muslims, 29% of Indian Christians, 18% of Indian Sikhs, 18% … Continue reading The Indo-European Death And Resurrection Show – A Remarkable Persistence Even At The Periphery Of Modern (Myth)Understanding

A Manifesto For The Resurrective Reincarnation Of The Loka-lized Indo-European Faith

What follows is not my own writing - although I have had a hand in editing it, and it has resulted from months of concordant conversations between myself and its major author, Aldo Rapace. We feel that it has come to a necessary stage in our Mission, to begin more openly discussing and working upon … Continue reading A Manifesto For The Resurrective Reincarnation Of The Loka-lized Indo-European Faith

On The Restoration Of The Position Of Women To That Of Archaic Indo-European Society

I find this image - and what it represents - rather intriguing. Because what we are presented with here is an instance of a Past challenging a Present. And it is something with quite archaic Indo-European mytho-cultural resonancy. What do I mean by this? Well, first, here's a brief description of what's going on in … Continue reading On The Restoration Of The Position Of Women To That Of Archaic Indo-European Society

On Using The IndraNet To Facilitate Indo-European Religious Revival

Something that's got me thinking - and while it starts off (as it often does) Hindu, of broader relevancy to the wider Indo-European religious revival that's going on at present. This ongoing pandemic is leading to some interesting - and creative - developments in the religious sphere. I got a message from one of the … Continue reading On Using The IndraNet To Facilitate Indo-European Religious Revival

A Brief Thought On What The Recent Rounds Of DNA Testing Indicate

A thought about all these DNA/ancestry tests that've been popular for awhile now. Now, it's tempting to just write the whole thing off as being a faddish portal to popular-genetics in a manner that's almost as fast-and-loose as Astrology or the Myers-Briggs personality assessments. You've got these gene-clusters, that means you've likely got X in … Continue reading A Brief Thought On What The Recent Rounds Of DNA Testing Indicate
