    Default Viking prophecy predicts the end of the world in 2014


    The end of the world was signalled in York last night as a horn was blown to herald the beginning of the apocalypse

    If Vikings were here today, the sounding of a distinctive horn in York would have created chaos. The ancient instrument, blown last night, signalled exactly 100 days until the end of the world, according to Norse mythology. Legend has it that the Norse God, Heimdallr, would blow the mythical Gjallerhorn to warn of the Viking apocalypse, also known as 'Ragnarok'.


    Ragnarok, which translates to ‘Doom of the Gods’, is due to be preceded by the winter of winters. Vikings believed, prior to the apocalypse, three freezing winters would follow each other with no summers in between. All morality would disappear and fights would break out all over the world, signalling the beginning of the end. The wolf Skoll would devour the sun, and his brother Hati would eat the moon, causing stars to vanish from the sky and the Earth to be thrown into eternal darkness. Norse mythology experts have calculated that Vikings believed this will take place on February 22, 2014. On this day, the god Odin will be killed by the wolf Fenrir and the other ‘creator’ gods.


    There will be huge earthquakes, the sea will rear up and the soil and the sky will be stained with poison. The sound of the horn is supposed to call the sons of Odin to the battlefield, where Odin will ultimately be killed. After his death, the Earth was foretold to sink into the sea, paving the way for a new utopian world with endless supplies. Danielle Daglan from the Norvik Viking Centre told Mail Online that a number of recent events spoken about in the legends of Ragnarok led them to believe that the end of the world may well be imminent. The legend states that ‘the first to notice shall be man, brother will fight brother and all the boundaries that exist shall crumble.’

    Vikings, you so silly.

    Daily Mail, you even sillier.

    Gotta admit, though, if there's a way for the Earth to go out, it seems like this would be the most epic.

    (Mods, feel free to move this to the EMM if you decide it's better there, as it does deal with the Norse Pantheon.)

    The end of the world would mean the end of politics, ferrets. It couldn't be more political.

    In fact as it entails the end of all things there should be a thread on this in every sub-forum.

    Just because this sounds like an attempt at a bit of free advertising for the Yorvik Centre thanks to the new Thor movie, it doesn't mean we shouldn't forsake our own gods and swear eternal servitude to Fenrir, Surtr, Jörmungandr or whoever takes your fancy.

    the end of theMesoamerican Long Count ushers in the "Sixth World",[note 2] with once-mythological beings (e.g. dragons) appearing and old forms ofmagic suddenly re-emerging. Large numbers of humans "Goblinize" into orks and trolls, while human children begin to be born as elves,dwarves, and even more exotic creatures. In North America, indigenous American tribes discover their traditional ceremonies allow them to command powerful spirits, and rituals associated with a new Ghost Dance movement let them take control of much of the western U.S. and Canada, where they form a federation of Native American Nations. Seattle, Washington remains under U.S. control by treaty as acity-state enclave,

    Ragnarok was not seen as the end of the world but a renewal of everything. The is no beginning or end in the scandinavian mythology but a eternal cycle of life. The myth of eternal return. Ofcourse if you read the myths through the lenses of christianity it is difficult to understand how everything dont have a beginning and an end and that time is not linear.

    Every random ancient pagan prophecy of doomsday just makes me confident that there wont be doomsday on that date.

    Can't tell if journalist Ellie Zolfagharifard is super-ironic. Seems more likely, she visited the Jorvik reenactment centre, was told the Ragnarok myth from the prophecies of the Vølve by one reenactor, heard another reenactor play a horn and somehow mixed up these events. There are no other indications of Ragnarok right now than her story. At least I did not receive the memo.

    This makes me want to go to the Jorvik centre again. It's only an hour(ish) from here but it's so expensive
