Note: As a kid growing up, I was the "Tomboy"; my dad's hunting and fishing partner. He and I also shared a love for comics. One of my favorites was "The Mighty Thor", which got me interested in Norse Mythology, an interest that has followed me through to present day. I have 3 dogs, Odin, Loki and of course, Thor (who happens to be the smallest and youngest of the three).
But you may ask, what do Norse gods have to do with UFOs and aliens? Well, the article below is possibly your answer. -SW
ANCIENT ALIENS | THOR A VIKING GOD OR ANCIENT ALIEN
One intriguing mythological figures in human history when analyzing ancient aliens connection with past human evolution is one of the most well known Norse gods named Thor, god of thunder, whom wielded a powerful hammer-weapon that would allow him to destroy his enemies and protect humanity from the giants who roamed the earth. To better understand why
Ancient Alien theory truly looks at this mythological figure as an intriguing character for ancient alien influence, one must have a basic understanding of who Thor was and his role on Earth, who his enemies were, and where his majestic and mythical hammer (named Mjollnir) came from.
Thor, the Norse god of thunder, was the son of Odin who was very popular among the Norse people. He required no sacrifice; and therefore, became a liked and loved god who protected the people and the gods from their enemies
known as giants who roamed the Earth. The Norse believed that Thor rode through the heavens on a chariot pulled by two goats and said lighting would flash every time he would throw his hammer (when thrown, the hammer would return to him). This powerful weapon was said to be made by two dwarfs named Brok and Eitiri, who made many magical objects for the gods. In addition to his hammer, it was said that he wore a belt that would double his strength and used iron gloves that helped him wield the hammer.
Thor's greatest enemy was a Midgard Serpent named Jormungand, who would be killed on Ragnarok ("Doom of the gods" "Twilight of the Gods") but would also kill Thor by its venom. Midgard ("middle world"), according to Norse mythology, was a defensive fortress which the gods build about the middle portion of the earth allotted to men in order to protect mankind from the giants. On Ragnarok, a "dooms day" of sorts, would be the day that the giants and serpents would overtake and kill the Asgard, the home and citadel of the gods, corresponding to Mount Olympus in Greek mythology.
For those who quickly picked up the names in old Norse mythology, they are, and were made popular through the modern day pop-culture scifi phenomenon Stargate SG-1. Dissecting this one piece at a time, we first look at the fact that Thor lived among the people of Earth and had uncanny similarities in human physical traits and characteristics. Thor, was said to have a short temper and was known for his binge eating and drinking, and was also commonly fooled and/or deceived. By definition, it would seem that Thor represented more of an advance form of human being made powerful by his knowledge and understanding of advance technology and not an all powerful and knowing god. Second, it was said that Thor was powerless without his Hammer. This would seem as though Thor was limited to his ability to protect and defend humanity and the gods without the use of his weapon. Being a god, it would seem that Thor would not need to make use of an object to use his powers. Could it be possible that Thor's Hammer is some kind of ancient alien weapon that allowed him to reign throughout the lands and protect his people?
Furthermore, it was said that Thor's Hammer was made by two dwarfs. This really interested us because Ancient Alien theorist do believe in various alien races, which could lead us to believe that these dwarfs could have been Grey Aliens, commonly depicted as standing 3-4 feet in height and having an advance knowledge in technology which could be mistaken as magic to those who are unaware of the power behind the laws of the Universe. In addition, it seemed that the Hammer was made to be used with the aid of two "iron" gloves, perhaps giving some kind of a magnetic signal to the Hammer, so when thrown, the Hammer would return to Thor. Looking deep into the depictions of the use of this weapon, it really seems more like a modern day weapon, something conceivable to us today, but magical to those in the past.
Third, a common use of the word chariot seems to be associated with flying objects in old folklore and mythical tales ranging from Greek Mythology, Christianity, and Hinduism. Here, Norse mythology clearly states the existence of a flying vehicle that Thor used to come to Earth. Without putting a great deal of thought into this fact, it would seem that this "god" needed the use of some kind of aerial vehicle (UFO) to move around. Lastly, Ancient Alien theorists would like to dive a little deeper into the tales of Thor's enemies. Norse Mythology spoke of giants and serpents who roamed the Earth who were destructive towards the race of humans. Using his Hammer, Thor would protect humanity and the gods from these "creatures." A couple of questions arise from these findings. First, why would gods need protection from these serpents and giants, and secondly, who were these creatures? Looking into old Sumerian text (one of the oldest civilization on Earth, predating the Norse civilization), creatures of serpent-like characteristics were described. These "android" beings were said to be giants and had very little concern over the well being of the humans on Earth. Could it be possible that old Norse Mythology also spoke of the same beings called the Anunnaki, also known as Reptilians?
If so, this could account for the legends of giants and serpents in Norse Mythology. Perhaps Thor was an ancient alien sent to Earth to keep the balance of power; however, eventually falling prey to the "evil" agenda noted by many who believe in the Anunnaki and Reptilian Alien connection. Being aliens, as opposed to gods, these mythological tales would make more sense considering the destruction of the so called Norse "gods" by the hands of these giants and serpents. Ancient Aliens seem to have a pretty convincing trail in the old Norse Mythology, but like many things we are speculating the possibilities. From the facts we hold to the assertions we make, it seems like Thor, god of thunder, holds more weight as an ancient alien than a mythological god!
