    Re: Burial methods

    What I would most want it to own enough land (I believe it's 5+ acres in Texas) so that I could be buried there, in land that would pass down to my theoretical children. I would build a half-buried...

    Re: Sacrifices

    During blots we use blood, but we have few of those. Generally, my kindred has fainings, which are bloodless offerings. We give food, drink, goods, those sort of things to the gods to reaffirm our...

    Re: Let the Gods Speak To You

    As I said, I'm not going to issue any sort of blanket "this is/isn't a proper sacrifice" without knowing all the details, and as Rae'ya said, some of these things are more akin to votive offerings...

    Re: Favorite story?

    Ha, that part has always pleased me greatly!

    My favourite stories are Króka-Refs saga (Ref the Sly), The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún, and the Vinland Sagas, (Grćnlendinga Saga and Eiríks Saga...

    Re: How do you connect?

    I agree strongly with this. Look at it through this lens, SilverShadow; a friend/sibling/parent/etc. has been ignoring hypothetical you for years then suddenly they want you back in their life. It...

    Re: Let the Gods Speak To You

    As one of the few recon heathens on this board, I think the problem with this is that, when you boil it down, our worldview has more to do with traditions than they do with the gods. We have...

  8. Re: Conversion? Thoughts, feelings, opinions?

    You'll never find me out thumping the Edda's asking people if they've allowed All-father Odin into their lives but I don't have a problem being vocal about what I believe. I'm constantly on the...
  9. Re: Is anyone interested in a discussion on Frith?

    To my knowledge, Grith means a place/pact of non-violence. Things/Allthings were places of Grith, but one had to watch themselves on the road to said Thing because the paths there were not extended...
  10. Re: Is anyone interested in a discussion on Frith?

    Interestingly enough, Frith didn't even extend to marriage kin (other than the two married, that is). In the story of Sigurd and Gudrun, Gudrun's brother's murder Sigurd. They are required to pay...
  11. Re: I wonder if Thor would do this, or use this approach

    I doubt that Ţórr was behind behind the encounter in your OP. Though he can hurl insults like he does his hammer (see Hárbarđsljóđ for an example), he isn't the type to get others to do it for him....
  12. Re: Is anyone interested in a discussion on Frith?

    Frith outside of the family is an interesting concept. At its core, Frith only exists within the family. And yet, our definition of family has changed so much from what the ancestors would have...
  13. Is anyone interested in a discussion on Frith?

    How to maintain it in the face of family adversity, what it means to modern heathens, what it is/isn't, how it differs from grith, etc?

    Thank you all for the warm welcome! It's nice to see some familiar faces and it's nice to meet the new ones as well.

    Sticky: Re: Remembering ChainLightning

    Having returned to PF only today, I just heard about Chain's passing. I will be eternally grateful to MaskedOne for relaying this information to me. When I left here four years ago, Mike was one...

    Hail and well met!

    Hello again, PF! I was a member for five years before leaving for reasons I no longer remember (or care to) and have returned after a four year hiatus.

    For a bit about me, I'm a practicing...
  17. Re: Police fire on Occupy Oakland protesters.

    Indeed, that does clear things up a bit. My thanks.
  18. Re: Police fire on Occupy Oakland protesters.

    It was not implied but rather stated that this thread was about the Occupy Oakland movement. To wit:



    I'm not trying to be argumentative nor asinine. I remain fairly neutral on the Occupy...
  19. Re: Police fire on Occupy Oakland protesters.

    Although I am hesitant to post in this thread given the lack of decorum I am stepping into, I do have a question. Is this thread about the Occupy Oakland movement? Is this thread instead about the...

    Re: Penn State Scandal

    I guess I just don't see it that way. I have been both A and B as well (although admittedly to much lesser crimes than rape). Had I been man A in this case, I would have strongly counciled man B to...

    Re: Penn State Scandal

    No, not really. If anything, I would ask why they did not come to me (since they are my neighbours and all that). That said, I would likely give neighbour A a pass. Honestly, if he didn't see it...

    Re: Penn State Scandal

    I do not know the exact extent of Joe Paterno's involvement with the Second Mile (but from what I can gather, it is essentially nil), so I cannot say with absolute certainty that he does not work...

    Re: Penn State Scandal

    From everything I have seen, Joe Paterno gets a report about sexual abuse. Like the man who reported it to him, he takes his (then second-hand) account to his superiors. They tell the man, who is...
  25. Re: If you are wrong, was it still worth it?

    I live my life as it makes sense to me and is it made sense to my ancestors. For me to be wrong, that would mean that there is some sort of evil set of deities (or deity) that rewards hurting the...
