  1. I have a question, but didn’t know where to put it. In the Norse religion, what is the difference between the gods and the giants. From my understanding of the creation story, they have the same origin and Odin himself is a half breed. Correct me if I’m wrong, I’m trying to write this from memory. So are giants and gods two “breeds” of a singular “species”?

    • You’ve manage to ask one of the most complex questions in Heathenry, so forgive me if this gets a bit rambly.

      Essentially they are both the same “species,” though by all acounts all the major groups of the Nine Realms are of the same species (since they can all interbreed). Now, the Gods and Giants did come from two different origins. The Gians (Jotuns) come from Ymir, the first Giant, who gave birth to the race of Jotuns when one of his legs slept with the other and got pregnant. The Gods decended from a being that was melted from the ice matter created by the realms Niflheim and Muspelheim coming together (which also created Ymir). So they are different groups as well.

      Ultimately though, there are examples of Jotuns becoming Gods (Loki, Hel, and Skadi being the most prominent examples, but there are others). So the difference isn’t so much a racial/species difference.

      The true difference between Giants and Gods comes from their essential natures and “functions” if you will. Giants represent the uncontrolled elements (the most common being Frost giants), beings of the wild winter-storm or raging fire. Where as the Gods represent the control of elements, To put it another way, the Gods create and govern the energies of their domain, where as Giants are more born from the chaos of uncontrolled elemental energies.

      I hope that explains it, at least a little bit. 🙂

  2. Question for you. Do you think that Economic Collapse (Such as what we’re seeing in Greece) could be a tool for Nature to control Human Population.

    • An interesting question.

      On the one hand…no. Partially because I don’t think Nature is a consciousness so much as a “set of guidelines.” Any consciousness in the matter would be from Gods or Spirits, and I don’t really see many of them inherently wanting to destroy economies and ruin lives. That’s not to say they aren’t, but generally there are signs and giant lightning-bolts when they want to make a point before punishing people.

      On the other hand, the Economic Collapse is a Natural Thing. The Greek economy is collapsing for a very simple reason. They “spend” too much and do not “make” enough. If you eat all your grain, and do not work hard enough to create more, then you will starve. Given that Greeks seem to retire earlier than everyone else and most of their retirement is based on Government charity, but the population ends up not paying all that much in taxes, then it is little wonder when a Government goes deeper and deeper into debt to pay, but never pays it back. So that is a natural thing to happen. Infinite resources are for Star Trek and Communist wet dreams. Not so much reality.

      Will this lead to form of “population control?” Maybe. The truth is that Europe and America aren’t really running out way beyond their resources. The majority just aren’t working to produce resources. It’s a consumer culture rather than a production culture. So the Economic collapse could push that in reverse, because when you cannot buy, and you are not given, then you must make yourself. However, given how much forgein aid had led to population booms in famine stricken areas like africa, should that aid stop you would see “population control” happen naturally as those who cannot be sustained by those resources die and the population fall back into what the areas resources could support.

      So it is a Natural Thing, but not necessarily Nature doing it.
