Portals from Stave Churches in Norway. These photos were taken at the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo. I believe the typical designs (the curling lines of wood) are the branches of Yggdrasil, as syncretism was the norm during this time as Christians began the conversion of the Pagans and so Norse myth was often depicted in Stave Churches. These portals would have been on each door of the church (often there were three to four).

fyi people who don’t live in Sweden. These last seven days (23rd-30th August 2014) the Nazistic Party of the Swedes (their views are basically race biology, people who are not of “the European race” should be thrown out of Sweden etc.) have created the greatest Nazistic mobilization in Sweden…

Why don’t these antifa get this pissed off when radical Muslim immigrants openly threaten to kill every non-muslim in Europe and turn it into a genocidal Islamist nation where anyone can be killed or raped for questioning radical “Islam”? Never see the outrage then.

I love when I post a rant and soon after I notice I have one less follower, it helps me know that I pissed off some ignorant idiot who’s too afraid to hear opinions that might hurt their timid feelings.

When a self-hating white person says something like “No rights for whites!” Than I should technically be able to get away with killing that person right?. Since you know, they’re white and don’t want any rights. That includes the right to live.
And when a self-hating white girl says that, then isn’t that like saying “I have no rights because I’m white! You can rape me now and get away with it, it’s cool!” 
Do people ever fully think out what they say.? They need a new slogan.

I get really tired of hearing some Native Americans honestly think that Europeans have no pre-Christian indigenous cultures of our own and that we can’t practice shamanism (which is a Eurasian word)
Europe had its own native cultures and religious and had been practicing its own shamanistic traditions long before any person had even stepped foot on North America even.
Even some of the oldest art on earth is in Europe and represents shamanistic society too.
Sorry, you’re not special nor are you the only ones who have the right to call “shamanism” yours.
Unfortunately its usually the fault of new-age plastic shamans who give off the impression that everyone else is that way.
Don’t confuse new-age junk with actual indigenous and historical practices which many Europeans happen to practice.
