Hope is the Dreams of the Man awake
You don’t know, you say? Well, some people handle that just fine, and simple accept that they don’t know, but others need some sort of assurance. They need to feel that what they ‘know’ (as in: “believe in”) is the truth. Without this assurance they crack up, so to say, and don’t cope well with life anymore.
Such individuals are drawn to ‘miracle men’ like flies to manure, and often they end up in a camp purely by chance, only because that particular camp was the first to ‘catch’ them when they fell. When reason, logic and evidence make it impossible for them to stay in one ‘miracle camp’, they simply change to another ‘miracle camp’. They rarely – if ever – grow wise enough to simply start accepting that they don’t know. No, they just change the contents of ‘the truth’ they believe in, and…

Instead they are to accept the new religious theories as axioms. “How can you even question these theories?!” They tell us that the Moon is gray, even when we all can see that it is white, and we still believe in them!

Christianity and the Viking Myth
One thing that is rather odd, is that Christians seems to think that they have some sort of monopoly on morals and good behaviour, that the Europeans before the Christianisation were just a bunch of amoral lunatics, raping, killing, pillaging, drinking and having no moral attitudes or self discipline whatsoever. They are often Christians because they are good and moral themselves (they are Europeans in blood after all), and wrongly believe that they need to take the consequence of that and therefore become or remain Christians. They know no other good and moral alternative.
Many modern so-called Pagans seems to think the same, and mistake Heathendom with Hedonism, and use their cartoonish mock-Paganism as an excuse to be amoral and live what the Christians would call ‘a life in sin’ – and what a real Pagan would call ‘a life without Honour’.
