Ok. I was doing some reading in my Valhalla app just now, and I was re-reading about the first man and woman.
In heathenism, it’s Ask and Embla. Ask (male meaning ash tree) and Embla (female meaning elm tree). These were the first two humans created by the gods.
And it just dawned on me, hang about, those names are like Adam (first male) and Eve (first female) Both the Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, state 3 gods (Odin, Hoenir and Lodurr) are involved in the creation of all life.
In one of my books, pagan portals its believed, among some heathen circles, Lodurr is another name for Loki. I don’t know , but 3 gods, again like the Trinity. And then also of Zeus, Poseidon and Hades.
It just struck me, there’s cross themes in all the religions, I found it interesting, and how I didn’t notice this before, I don’t know. Maybe there is just one divine team, and we all add our own names and stories to them
Even in science, it’s talks about life just exploding random, chaos, (Loki’s God of chaos) etc. This is really intriguing me, not that I’m scientific, but there’s another theme.
I think I’m going to dive down this rabbit Warren and see where I end up. It might be fascinating.
