To learn something about an ancient pre-christrian, pre-jewish, european religion (heathen, pagan) please go to http://www.vaidilute.com/ and then click on the asatru button. This is a simply written article by a young follower of that religion.
Asatru is a polytheistic religion that was suppressed by Christianity but is slowly coming back into light. It is of interest to us, because of its link to Scandinavia. (Read ‘Arctic home in the Vedas’ by Tilak.)
