MYTHOLOGY MEME(3/3) Locations

In Norse mythologyVALHALLA is a majestic, enormous hall located in Asgard, ruled over by the god Odin. Chosen by Odin, half of those who die in combat travel to Valhalla upon death, led by valkyries, while the other half go to the goddess Freyja's field Fólkvangr. In Valhalla, the dead join the masses of those who have died in combat known as Einherjar

According to the poetic Edda, Valhalla has spear-shafts for rafters, a roof thatched with shields, coats of mail are strewn over its benches, a wolf hangs in front of its west doors, and an eagle hovers above it. The holy doors of the ancient gate Valgrind stand before Valhalla, Valhalla has five hundred and forty doors that eight hundred men can exit from at once.  Within Valhalla exists Thor’s hall Bilskirnir, and within it exist five hundred and forty rooms, and of all the halls within Valhalla, Odin states that he thinks his son’s may be greatest. The goat Heiðrún and the hart Eikþyrnir stand on top of Valhalla and graze on the branches of the tree Læraðr. Heiðrún produces vats of mead that liquor cannot be compared to, and from Eikþyrnir’s antlers drip liquid into the spring Hvergelmir from which flows forth all waters.

people acting like science is pure, untainted, and unbiased make me laugh so hard

Remember that time when ‘science’ decided that Black people who ran away from being raped and enslaved were just suffering from mental illness?

Remember that time when ‘science’…

This post!

I might also add…”remember when ‘science’ held that, to cure any disease, all one had to do perform nearly fatal blood-letting to remove ‘bad blood’

And…

"Remember when ‘science’ held that one culture/race was inherently superior to another? Gee, thank God for WWII or that misguided ‘science’ would still be mainstream."
