Shedding The Psychic Remnants Of Christianity

Shedding The Psychic Remnants Of Christianity Cover Most of the lore-based arguments against our Folkish worldview are based on the four presented above. In general, they show a common thread - namely, Christian thinking!

First, the idea that all humans spring from Ask and Embla may be appealing from a simplistic viewpoint, but it implies the non- existence of other peoples' Gods and thus reflects the same religious imperialism we find in historical Christianity.

Likewise, to propose that the Aesir and Vanir have sex outside their "race" (species?) is to use the Eddic texts in the literal way that fundamentalist Christian uses the Bible.

Finally, to suggest that religions can be chosen in the same way one chooses a hat or a new car is to divorce the group of people from their Way, which is characteristic of the monotheistic religions.

Those who reject the Folkish viewpoint often accuse us of not really being true to the Aesir and Vanir. Ironically, though, a closer look shows their arguments against us to be much more in line with Christianity than with the inherently tribal and ethnocentric nature of indigenous religions!
