    Re: i believe in , Odin

    The chief divinity of the Norse pantheon, the foremost of the Aesir. Odin is a son of Bor and Bestla. He is called Alfadir, Allfather, for he is indeed father of the gods. With Frigg he is the father of Balder, Hod, and Hermod. He fathered Thor on the goddess Jord; and the giantess Grid became the mother of Vidar.

    lol, i had to google this.

    if this is what your on about, then sorry definitely don’t believe in it only Allah

    Re: i believe in , Odin

    Odinism is the indigenous religious faith of the English, British and other peoples of Northern Europe; it is an amalgam of attitudes, ideas and behaviour, both a personal faith and a communal way of life. In its beginnings Odinism is probably as old as our race. Historically it may be divided into three periods:The ancient oral traditions of Odinism were during the Middle Ages embodied in writings, the Odinist books of wisdom, the principle of which are the Eddas. The poetic Elder Edda presents the Odinist cosmogony, the mythological lays and the heroic lays, including the story of Sigurd and Brynhild which were in later times moulded into the Lay of the Nibelungs. The Younger Edda is a prose synopsis of the Odinist faith.there was the Creator. (But the Creator being by itself meant that it hadn't created anything yet, so I have no idea of what it was called before it "created" anything.) (Anyway) The Creator decided to create. Since there way nothing but the Creator to create from that posed a problem. Well the Creator decided that in order to create the 'verse the Creator would have to do so from itself. Buy doing so it would no longer be what it was. Instead it would be everything. So the Creator gave itself to itself (sounds familiar here I know) and threw itself outward upon the great emptiness. (Big Bang) They last thing that the Creator did was leave its "Will" (as in "Last Will and Testament") behind. That was the first thing actually created and is Orlog.

    Orlog is the Will of the Creator and Time is the tool through which it is revealed.

    Part of Orlog allowed that there was a lot of work to be done and since the Creator was no longer in any condition to do it then certain things had to come about. This is where we get Elementals/Giants and Gods. With their help, and working within the framework of Orlog things started to unfold. Insert Eddas (or your favorite sacred texts) here.

    So there you are. Sitting there reading this. You work within the framework of Orlog and now you have your Wyrd to contend with. It will help make course corrections in your life or at least can tweak your attitude towards/about things. It is the most effected by your decisions and can in fact be the most influential on your decision making process.

    So far we have mentioned Orlog and Wyrd, but nothing on Hamingja. Have I forgotten it? How does that fit in. Well I haven't forgotten it and it fits in sort of in between. Hamingja, being luck (basically) is residual of the same rule in Orlog that allowed the Gods to be created. In fact Hamingja can be considered to be the God of the godless. It will do as it does without intercession or acknowledgment on the part of those it is dealing with. (Where as the Gods tend to deal more with those who are "theirs" than help out or looking into the lives of those who aren't.)

    So there we are. Living our lives. Wrapped up in our Wyrd and Hamingja. Trying to understand our connection to the Gods (and maybe the Creator of this all). Maybe trying to look for the events and patterns that would lead us to a greater understanding of Orlog and thus the "Big Plan" and our part in it.
    thanks hope this helps

    ODIN is called Allfather because he is father of all the gods. He is also called Father of the Slain, because all those that fall in battle are the sons of his adopt on; for them he appoints Valhall.

    It is permissible to discuss and debate religion beliefs in the section only. However, if it appears that any religious debates are outside this section, they will be seen as promoting a religion other than Islam and will be deleted, with possible infractions etc. being given.

    actually, i came here to learn about islam, but i have also learned about other religions here as well.
    now, as a muslim you should know that this piece of knowledge may just come in handy someday if you are caught in a blizzard in northern germany with a follower of odin - you will know better how to give dawa!

    I was under the believe that the old Norse beliefs had ended centuries ago. Is this some type of revival?

    Do you believe only in Odin or do you follow the whole nine yards and include all of the old beliefs such as valkyries, Loki, etc.
