Forum Borealis

We journey back to early scriptures to assess their meaning free from dogma. Some issues touched: What's the Order of Malta? Why's ritual & symbol crucial? Did Paul plot to ruin the Jesus cult? What's the Q source? How did the Church Fathers compile the bible? How many Gospels existed? Why were texts censored & suppressed? Why are paradoxes inherent? Why are scriptures not historic? What's the point of relics? What's the process from myth to philosophy? Did Islam emerge from Christianity? Why are true traditions secret? Was Jesus in India? Who's Yaldabaoth? How to deal with fear? What's the ideal group size? Is reincarnation consistent with Christianity?

Facts are clouded by popular fiction series like "Vikings" & other media portraying Scandinavians of yore. So today a fellow Norseman help clarify the actual Viking history, culture, & religion. We review some main characters, events, & traditions, comparing them with reality. Some questions addressed:
What are basic misunderstandings? Who was the berserkers? Whence stem the genuine Vikings? Any difference between the Nordic countries? Which intoxicants did they use? Is Norse & Hindu mythology related? What do we know of their paganism? Has anything survived?

Welcome to a FB classic, as it was recorded years ago + touches the "greatest hits" of our topics, from Antarctica bases to exile Nazis. Some questions raised: Why mount a polar expedition? How was it crushed? Are the hot springs real? What happened to the German bases? Did they find a Polar opening? Is the Spear of Destiny there? Why so hard to access the poles? What befell Jarle Andhøy's boat? How late did uboats emerge in Tierra del Fuego? What did Kammler & Müller do in NASA after WW2? Where did Dönitz build an "impregnable fortress"? Is Die Spinne & O.D.E.S.S.A. still around? + Why do world leaders keep visiting Llao Hotel in Bariloche?

NB! Some of the weird pictures mentioned in the show are displayed towards the end.
