Ajax and Achilles playing draughts between battles during the Trojan War. Approx. 540 BC. Black Figure Greek Amphora
μῆνιν ἄειδε θεὰ Πηληϊάδεω Ἀχιλῆος
οὐλομένην, ἣ μυρί᾽ Ἀχαιοῖς ἄλγε᾽ ἔθηκε,
Sing oh Goddess, the Wrath of Achilles, Greatest of Warriors…who heaped Countless Woes upon the Greeks and sent Armies of Heroic Souls to Hades..
(Translation S. Fenner)
This is one of my favorite invocations, the first lines of The Iliad, in which Homer calls upon the divine Goddesses themselves to help him tell a tale of honor and courage beyond all mortal reckoning, for Achilles, was after all, the son of a human male wed to an immortal Goddess. Achilles’ rage at the death and dishonor of those he loved knew no earthly bounds.
Like Thor, Achilles is the polar opposite of the so many of our modern males, afflicted with the deadly disease of apathy, and this applies not just to modern males but to females as well. European women, when not forced into the two dimensional mold our Semitic controlled media presents, also innately have self respect and honor. For instance Queen Aslaug exacted terrible revenge for the death of her stepson. Now, thanks to the deleterious effects of Christianity we can witness the shocking spectacle of a European heritage man who not only does not take revenge against the Blacks who raped and tortured his daughter Channon Christian, leaving her to suffocate in a trash can, but who is actually ashamed of hating them, and even thinks he is “not normal” because he is full of rage. Is it any wonder we are being genocided?
An excellent sentiment…
As a race we have become afraid of caring too much for those who are our own, of standing up for anything that matters, and of doing anything that might single us out from the herd in such a way that it might not accept us. Many of us afflicted with that even greater disease of Christianity, have not just lost our potency and honor, but no longer even know who or what our people are, and even if they did, would never dare celebrate it or rejoice at the greatness of our Ancestors. My tale here may seem ordinary at first, but it is about something great as well. It is about our true identity that we have forgotten, that we are the children of the Gods.
In my efforts to restore European culture, I always seek to find new and interesting things to present about the ancient world, and I must concede that despite the fact that I work very hard, I cannot take full credit when I do. The fact is that I am always helped, and led unerringly in the right direction. I am sure that some of my readers know what I am talking about in one way or another… Some might call it synchronicity, an ancient Greek would believe we are inspired by the Muses, or one might well believe that there is a spirit or spirits in Nature that guide us. I think that when something is important, our tribal Ancestors , and even, at times, our High Ones themselves, direct our paths for reasons we might not even understand for many years later, or at least that is the case with me.
Antique Swastika Ornaments and Tree Topper that survived by being smuggled over the Dutch Border in WW2.
Have you ever felt, or I should say have you ever known, deep down, that something is right and that you were led to it? That is the case here, and the way that I came across the discovery I am writing about now was so strange that I thought I would share it with you too. After all, it is not every day that one discovers something that no one has known for a thousand years.
the Lightning Like Sig Rune, emblazoned on this amazing Germamic ornament.
Three weeks ago, on Thor’s Day, I came across a Thurisaz rune which somehow had got into the Yule boxes away from the other runes. This made me think of Thor, and when I sat down at the computer a few minutes later, still thinking of Thor and his symbols, such as that emblem of his force and strength, the swastika, I thought I would see if there were any swastika Yule ornaments available this year.. I did not find any I could afford, but did see some lovely pictures of an incredible collection of antique German ornaments a man had inherited from his grandmother. They have various striking designs, not only the swastika, but also the Germanic swastika with an eagle, and the Sig rune, which of course, resembles lightning. You can see some pictures of a few of these amazing ornaments above and below.
Sometimes Yule can be very festive…
Some of these glorious ornaments included matching tree toppers, as you can see above, and this reminded me that I needed a tree topper for a small Yule tree we have at our Odinist temple this year. Most of the decorations on this tree are Swedish, but I was looking for a German tree top ornament, and I came across some antique ones much like those I saw occasionally when I was a child in Nuremberg.
An antique German tree topper with rays coming out from the central globe.
I am familiar with the onion globed Slavic churches, such as those in St. Petersburg, and the Stave Kirke of Norway, because I am very interested in ancient Pagan temple complexes, and have found some correspondences between Asian, Norwegian, Slavic, and Greek temple architecture, all of which must certainly have originated with our folk. Like many people, even including some Christians who at times consider them to be evil “forbidden” fertility symbols  , I do not for a minute believe a Church steeple is “Christian” and so, when I saw the Germanic tree toppers again, I suddenly knew, for the first time, what they are.
Lightning hitting a lightning rod and making it glow with energy.
Not even understanding the nature or scientific complexity of the buildings that had been made by Pagan Europeans that they so often converted to churches, Christians did not realize why these ancient temples had steeples at the top. After all, Christianity was created and promoted by Jews, who generally encouraged freed slaves and the lower classes to rebel against nobility, and excellence itself. The pursuit of scientific knowledge and spiritual meaning were not high on their list of priorities, since free thought, logic, and scientific knowledge were exactly what they wanted to squelch.
Theodore Stataletes, who has of course been sainted by the Church, smashing gold and silver Heathen Statues in a temple in Asia Minor. This vandalism was billed as “heroic” because he supposedly gave some of the money he got from selling pieces of the statues he destroyed to the peasants. Notice that although Christians hate our Pagan pantheistic belief in the Sun as a source of life and energy, and a living being, the artist here does not scruple to portray this savage with a “halo” which of course is taken from our art, and portrayals of our Gods, as a means of denoting divinity and the glory of the Sun.
There was an orgy of destruction of not just property but of life, not just of monuments but of those who could even appreciate or understand their meaning.. Those who manipulated this onslaught are now acting in exactly the same manner today in regard to the Nathan Bedford Forrest statue, and other Confederate symbols and European historical monuments. Jews are manipulating Blacks to destroy anything European in America, and not just in America  , and now we are expected to take down our own art and monuments and wipe out our historical and actual existence as a race, in order to demonstrate we are not “racist”.
The “Very Reverend” Gary Hall, who has a Jewish spokesman married to a man, and is also known for stating that “Homophobia is a Sin”, has removed these stained glass windows in honor of European American generals, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, because they were White men. Their great accomplishments, heroism, lives, and our history do not matter because according to the 97% Jewish owned media, European culture and European folk are “racist” . When our monuments and our race are all gone there will be nothing left to make the savages jealous, hence no more racists. Thank you, Jews! “National Cathedral should not be Stained with the Confederate Flag”
As usual, the Christians and other cultural Marxists, directed by the Jews, are leading the charge. Both now and in the past, this same Semitic tribe ignited the baser instincts of other races, and the lesser people of our race, and encouraged them to envy and hate those who could create what they never could. Eventually, they succeeded in inflaming the enviers into a frenzy of destruction of what were, from their limited perspective, monuments to their inferiority.. Still, the culture destroyers did not want to build any indoctrination centers themselves if they could help it, so where possible they preserved the buildings.
“St. Apollonia destroying a Pagan statue”, painted by Giovanni d’Alemagna in 1442. Notice how Christians who destroy European culture and art are yet again portrayed as performing a holy act, but at the same time, in this case, contrive to have themselves named after Apollo and wear his solar halo, and even call their Jewish “god” Christ, using Apollo’s rightful title.
Paradoxically, the murderers of European folk and destroyers of our culture and religion, are often given titles to express their supposed greatness, as in the case of King Olaf the Oathbreaker who is called by Jew worshipers Olaf the “good”, and the possibly half Jewish Charlemagne, mass murderer of Europeans, whose name means “Charles the Great”. Pope Gregory I, who is given the sobriquet, “the great” is no exception. Gregory, who might more accurately be called “Gregory the Temple Thief”, was quoted in giving instructions to Abbot Mellitus saying;
I have come to the conclusion that the temples of the idols in England should not on any account be destroyed. Augustine must smash the idols but the temples themselves should be sprinkled with holy water and altars set up in them in which relics are to be enclosed, for we ought to take advantage of well built temples by purifying them from devil worship and dedicating them to the service of the true (and by this he means “Jewish”) god.
Our religion, not being Jewish, is referred to as “devil worship”. Therefore, in the new cultural Marxist regime that was created from the ashes of a real civilization, complete with thought control laws at its outset demanding people worship the Jewish god or be killed, it so happened that most of the people who actually understood what anything meant were suppressed to the point they had to remain silent, or were forced to flee, leaving the civilization they had created in the power of savages.
The church spires of St. Petersburg and their steeples, sometimes with only one globe, sometimes with two or more, exactly like the tree top ornaments… I believe that such structures originally would have been topped not with crosses but with swastikas. They stand as mute testament to greatness of our ancient Heathen science.
Ironically, the ignorant Church fathers, after stealing the temples of our Heathen European nobility and converting them to their use, were greatly concerned about the lightning that naturally often struck the former temples since they were the highest structures. They did not realize that they sometimes had the means to halt the damage built into the Pagan structures themselves, because although they had occupied the temples, they did not have the corresponding knowledge to make theirs systems work, or even to know what they were.
In fact, when technology that could be used to protect church towers from lightning was discovered, or as I know now after seeing these Germanic ornaments, rediscovered, in various forms by Benjamin Franklin, this scientific device, the lightning rod, was considered the very epitome of evil by Christians, so much so that Franklin, like Copernicus and Galileo, who both also had re-discovered scientific facts known to our Heathen ancestors thousands of years ago, namely that the Sun is the center of the solar system, was vilified as a heretic. 
Only one of these two Gods is alive and only one of them is OUR God. Odinism is our native religion, not Christianity.
In Summa Theologica, St. Thomas Aquinas stated, “Rain and winds, and whatsoever occurs by local impulse alone, can be caused by demons. It is a dogma of faith that the demons can produce winds, storms, and rain of fire from heaven” and evil spirits were widely believed to be the cause of thunderstorms, from the Christian take-over until fairly recent times. In order to fend off these evil spirits, Christians resorted to elaborate ceremonies intended to quell the demons, and one might imagine Thor in particular, who like Odin, was viewed as the devil himself.
They said lengthy prayers to the Jewish “god”, sprinkled holy water, and consecrated bells, expressing the forlorn hope that their sound might “temper the destruction of hail and cyclones and the force of tempests and lightning; check hostile thunders and great winds; and cast down the spirits of storms and the powers of the air.”  Strangely, none of it worked..
Thor just doesn’t like churches.
Of course storms could be caused by witches too, so in order to placate the Jew god, any “witches”‘ who were discovered had to be burnt, such as the beautiful Scottish Helen McDougal, who because she was so gifted at the healing arts and saved so many people with her medicines was tortured, until she confessed to having used her unholy power to attack King James VI’s ship at sea during his trip back from Denmark with his bride Anne in 1589, nearly capsizing their ship. Approximately 4,000 people, most of them women, and healers, were accused, tortured, and often killed in Scotland as a result of hysteria about this storm.
Thor , Zeus, and Perun, our ancient European Gods of Lightning, who once, in long ages past, were probably one and the same. Despite the best efforts of the the Judeo Christians to minimize his importance, they have been unable to annihilate him.
We do indeed have a tradition of various European Gods, and even certain gifted mortals, at times, interfering with storms and wind, and bringing tempests down upon those who have incurred their wrath, but in general, Thor himself is thought of as a protective God, one who saves our folk from storms and strikes enemies. He is after all, our own God, not a foreign, alien God imposed upon us by another race in order to control and harm us.
Painting of the “White Christ”. The best weapon the Jews have against us? No offense to Christians, but worshiping the god of my deadliest enemy while being as meek and humble as a lamb would not be my first choice of action in the battle for the survival of our folk against the forces of White genocide.
In particular, did Pagan European warriors devoted to our God Thor look with horror upon the bizarre enemy- loving god that they were supposed to take seriously on the orders of leaders bribed to betray our folk. This is how the Red Thor, White Christ concept came about.
Jesus was a figure Heathen men rightly considered to be both cowardly and homosexual in nature, which is why they called the Jew god hvítakristr, meaning the “White Christ”, a term which had a number of pejorative connotations, for example, the idea of being lily-livered, bloodless, and effeminate. The foreign deity, born of a race who fought by treachery rather than bravery, was often compared unfavorably to Red Thor, a real God and warrior, red blooded and strong, and also red with the blood of the enemy.
The Viking attitude…
Even a female skald, named Steinunn Refsdóttir mocked the inferior Jew god, telling the story of how Thórr wrecks the ship of a Christian priest, named Thangbrand, demonstrating that the White Christ character was weak and spiritless by comparison. Below is her description, translated into English  In these verses, there are numerous kennings for a ship, such as “long horse”, and “sea shingle stepper”, and my favorite, a “reindeer of Gylfi”. Thor is referred to as the “killer of ogresses kin”, and the Christian priest as a “bell guardian”.
Greek bronze statue, thought to be the thunder God Zeus (or Poseidon) found in the Sea off Cape Artemision, Museum of Athens, 550 BC.
Thórr altered the course of Thangbrand’s long horse of Thvinnil
He tossed and bashed the plank of the prow and smashed
it all down to the solid ground;
The ski of the ground of Atall
won’t later be buoyant on the sea
since the baleful gale caused by him splintered it all into kindling.
The killer of ogresses’ kin
pulverized fully the mew-perch bison
of the bell’s guardian
(the gods chased the steed of the strand)
Christ cared not for sea-shingle stepper
when cargo-boat crumbled;
I think that God hardly guarded
the reindeer of Gylfi at all.
Red Thor, in strong opposition to the White Christ, exemplifies a hero who protects his folk and wins at epic cosmic battles by fighting the enemy rather than by loving the enemy and sacrificing himself and his people…
By contrast to the faithless foreign Jewish god, our own Ancestors and Gods, then and now, rightly have been seen as at times intervening in the affairs of men, for although we are expected to carve out our own fates, our Ancestors and the very forces of nature themselves sometimes act to tip our fortunes in one direction or another. It also has traditionally been believed that some mortal beings also, who bear closer relation to the Gods, could by sheer force of will and ability shape the course of events, the path of storms, and the outcomes of battles. It was this very belief and practice that Christians sought so desperately to demonize and despiritualize in the course of branding all who were exceptional in any way as witches and demons.
The glorious Valkyries, heavenly beings who acted as beneficent ancestral guardian spirits and psychopomps, at times saving us from storms, were demonized and thought of as witches by Jew worshipers.
Before the demonization of Christianity portrayed our Ancestors and Goddesses as evil, ugly, witches, they were something else altogether and this, of course, is our real tradition. The Second Lay of Helgi Hundingsbani  , says that Högni’s daughter, “was a Valkyrie and rode through sea and air.”
In an upcoming Winter Odinist video rede and blót, I am going to include my theory about the Valkyrie’s connection with auroras, which I presented at a Cambridge Lecture series several years ago, but for now, we are talking about storms. An interesting link is implicitly established between the riding of the Valkyries and the storm:
Helgi assembled a great fleet and went to Frekastein and braved, on peril of their very lives, a violent storm. Then lightning flashed from above and the bolts struck their ships. They saw nine Valkyries riding in the sky and recognized Sigrun among them. The storm then subsided, and they made their way to shore safe and sound, 
Thor’s power is the elemental masculine force of lightning and this power comes from and is connected with the Sun, which is why he and Sunna, the Sun Goddess, are both associated with solar symbols, such as the the solar wheel, swastika, and the kolvorat, in its many different forms, but why is lightning associated with the Sun?
The solar wheel or kolvorat swastika has many different patterns which yet survive in Eastern Europe. These solar and lightning symbols celebrate the elemental power of nature and its intelligence.
Lighting is not just symbolic of masculine potency… lightning literally does fertilize the Earth. In fact, its no exaggeration to say that without lighting there would be no life on earth because, regardless of how one thinks life came about, the building blocks of life, amino acids, are formed naturally in the atmosphere only when lightning is introduced, as was discovered in the Urey-Miller experiment in 1953.  This experiment is receiving new attention now that some old notes of Miller’s were found which would seem to indicate that volcanic lightning has an even greater amino acid forming effect, and that it may be possible to develop instruments to detect the formation of life building amino acids on Mars or Titan. 
In the same series of experiments in the 1950’s in which amino acids where shown to be formed by adding simulated lightning to flasks with atmosphere similar to that of primitive Earth, it was found that simulated volcanic lightning with steam created a far more intense effect. A greater variety and volume of amino acids were produced. These results were not published at the time, but have recently been discovered in the lab notes.
Neither plants nor animals can live or reproduce without nitrogen because it is an essential part of the amino acids that make up proteins, cells, and one’s DNA itself, and without lightning, there would be no absorbable nitrogen on this planet. The reason for this is that Nitrogen molecules in our atmosphere have two atoms that are held together extremely tightly, so much so, that our bodies do not have the energy to process it. We cannot absorb the nitrogen in its raw state..
The atoms cannot be unraveled and made usable unless they are struck by lightning. In a thunder storm, the electrical energy in lightning is sufficient to separate the nitrogen atoms in the air. They can then fall to earth along with the rain water, and enter the soil where the nitrogen mixes with the minerals, and bacteria and fungi convert it into nitrates, which plants, animals, and humans can absorb and eat, and by these means plant and animal life can flourish on our planet. It really is a case of Father Universe giving life to Mother Earth.
The lightning of Thor, the gift of the Sun and its energetic particles sent to us by solar winds, showering life -giving Nitrogen upon the Earth..
The Sun is involved in the Nitrogen cycle as well. Several years ago during a conversation with some astrophysicists, I suggested that climate change was caused by solar variation. At first they were not convinced, but after thinking about it they began to take it seriously, and a few years later this was proven beyond a doubt by a NASA study that shows a clear correlation between solar activity and temperature. The chart can be seen in this podcasts at minute 29.  Of course, our controlled media would not want you to know this because it might interfere with profits, but despite all the hype about global warming, which replaced a similar global cooling scare in the 1970’s  , solar variation is the primary cause of climate change.
Next time a Jew or Christian tells you our Ancestors were barbarians, show them this. The Ancients understood not only how to make lightning rods but, on some level at least, the interplay between the Sun and lightning, which is something we have only just discovered.
It has recently been discovered that the Sun, in the form of high energy cosmic rays, causes lightning.  Just as energetic particles from the Sun carried by solar wind can bring about auroras, under certain conditions, such as when a slower moving solar wind is overtaken by a quick moving solar wave, the atmosphere can be bombarded with high energy particles causing extreme lighting activity. The same effect can occur when we are hit by partcular debris from other Suns which have exploded.
Germanic tree top ornament which, to me, very much resembles both “Church steeples”, which would once have topped our temple, and modern lightning rods..
Once in the past, at Uppsala, and at other temples, our great sacred trees would have doubtless have had similar “ornaments” atop them, to protect them from harm, and certainly our Norse, Anglo Saxon, Slavic, and other European temples would have as well, because they are, or were, lightning rods, the symbols of Thor. Our Ancestors possessed this technology far before Benjamin Franklin.
Modern Lightning rods…
The mini-Yggsdrasils that people brought into their homes carried on this tradition all these years, through so many centuries of darkness, so long that people forgot what they were, but those who kept this custom at first must have known that some day someone would see, and I have the honor of being that person.
19th century lightning rods taken from an illustration of L. Klasen’s “Die Blitzableiter in ihrer Konstruktion und Anlage”, 1895
These tree toppers were not just of similar shape to ancient steeples and lightning rods, but of a particular shape which once was functional, having one or more glass circular globes, sometimes decorated with a recess with a sunburst, or lightning strike symbol within, or zigzag lightning design. The globes or balls of the ornaments and buildings were crafted into beautiful forms on the temples, and the churches that copied them, but in the beginning they were actual working lightning rods. How do I know this?
Glass objects are non conductive and therefore seldom are hit by lightning, and so solid glass balls were traditionally placed on the top of the tallest mast of a ship in order to prevent lighting strikes. It is not at all certain whether this has an effect, but the glass balls are used even today on lightning rods for another purpose that is considered to be valuable. In the event of a lighting strike, the glass ball generally shatters or falls off and if it is discovered on the ground, everyone knows that then one should check for damage to the roof, the lightning rod, and grounding wire, so that these things can be replaced if necessary.
Metal mesh around the lightning rod, a remembrance of an ancient system of protection for our sacred trees.
But this is not all.. have you ever wondered why there was a golden chain around the glorious temple at Uppsala? Now this mystery is solved, again thanks to the ornaments. If you take a look at them you will see that some are covered with metal or metallic netting. They represent what they are patterned after..
Ah, whatever would we do without the Messianic Jews to direct our ways away from those of our Ancestors… Live perhaps?
Metal mesh cables can be used to direct energy from a lightning strike safely away from buildings and even trees.  Being porous and water rich, all trees are susceptible to lighting strikes and in need of protection, in particular the most sacred of all trees, the Donar Oak, since lightning strikes oaks more than any other tree, one reason why the oak must have traditionally been considered the tree of Thor.  The Jewish bible accuses us of adorning our trees with precious metals, such as silver and gold, and we did. (-:
A woodcut depicting the Temple at Uppsala as described by Adam of Bremen, including the golden chain around the temple, and the sacred well and tree, taken from Olaus Magnus’ Historia de Gentibus Septentrionalibus (1555).
In Gesta Hammaburgensis Ecclesiae Pontificum, Adam of Bremen describes the great temple complex at Uppsala, including a massive tree with far-spreading branches which was evergreen both winter and summer, a spring, and a golden chain surrounding the temple that hangs from the gables of the building.
Amazingly, when this method of directing energy from lightning was first rediscovered in 1754, it was used in a very similar fashion, with a chain and it was also intended to be used with a religious building. It did not last long, but there is a record of it. Václav Prokop Diviš, was a theologian and scientist who is generally credited with being the first inventor of the grounded lighting rod, and although this is not true, he may have reinvented it independently of former Pagan knowledge.
An old fashioned chain garland for Yule trees which may well be a remembrance of ancient efforts to divert lightning.
On the 15 July in 1754 in his garden at Přímětice u Znojma, in what is now the modern Czech Republic, he constructed a working grounded lightning rod, complete with 400 sharp metal spikes attached at the top of a 42 m tall supporting pylon, fastened by three metal chains attached to the iron grounding cones buried in the packed down soil to conduct electricity harmlessly to the earth. His invention was intended to make ships and churches safe from the threat of lightning strike. Václav Prokop Diviš and other scholars write about his machine at the time. 
Pieter from Holland with one of the Swastika ornaments he inherited from his grandmother.
Excited by his discovery, Diviš made a formal request to Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria to allow him build more of his “weather machines” so as to spare congregations and travelers by sea from the danger of lightning strikes. The emperor was at least open minded enough to have this proposal to create more of what was, in some quarters, considered to be an infernal instrument of the devil, looked into by a team of mathematicians in Vienna, but they made a judgement against it. There was at least enough defiance towards this cultural Marxist outcome for the Abbé Marci, the court mathematician, to have been quoted as saying of the decision ‘Blasphemant, quae ignorant’ (They condemn what they do not understand).
Historically decorated tree complete with metal chains…
This was not quite the end of the strange history of Diviš’ weather machine, however. In 1756, his creation was overwhelmed by a windstorm and valiantly rebuilt, only to be torn down and destroyed in 1760 by Christian peasants who believed that what they had been taught to consider an ungodly machine was responsible for that year’s drought. After that very summer brought a host of violent thunderstorms that destroyed a number of their fields and vineyards, the villagers had a change of heart and asked Diviš to rebuild his machine. Happy to oblige, he built not just one, but two, one near the Loucky monastery, and another at the top of the Church tower in Přímětice.
In closing, a little Odinist news for the season. I shall be interviewed today by Kyle Hunt of Renegade Broadcasting on his Sunna’s Day show, The Solar Storm: Seana Fenner – True Yule (12-20-15). If you have not caught the first part of our Wild Hunt Yule series, you can watch it here or view it on our website, (hopefully, we shall have a part 2 for you soon), and for Thor’s sake, please consider celebrating the Yule with its correct astronomical reckoning.
Blessings of the season… love, and light…
This Yuletide, may we take a moment to rediscover who we really are… and think about what we can yet be again…
