There is one planet in particular in our Solar system that ensures the survival of life as we know it on our planet Earth, and this is of course Jupiter. Had it not been for the gravitational field of this giant planet the surface of our Earth would have been peppered by objects from outer space.
Not named by chance, the planet is called Jupiter, and the deity Jupiter’s Scandinavian name is Þôrr, and he is well known as the god of thunder, but less as a god of agriculture and even less as a god of rain. Thunder brings about rain and rain is as we know (if controlled…) good for the agriculturist.
Þôrr is in Scandinavia commonly called «Þôrr with the Hammer», because he is famous for his special hammer, made to him by the dark elves (=dwarves) in the ground. The hammer was originally a rock, as seen from the etymology of the word hammer, which originally means simply «rock». It always returns to him when he throws it into the air and it can be made so small he can easily just put it into a small pocket or pouch, if he likes to. He is also equipped with a belt that makes him twice as strong, the Meginnjörð («strength of the Earth»).
As you know it is gravity that causes the rain to fall to the ground, that causes rocks to return to your hand when you throw them into the air, and we know that gravity is not linked to the size of an object, but to its mass. So his hammer can be made as small as he wants it to be, without influencing its power. Naturally his belt of strength is then called «the strength of the Earth», because that is basically another name for gravity; the strength of the mass.
In our mythology he is also, naturally, tasked with protecting the world from the stone giants and ice giants, just like the planet Jupiter protects planet Earth from the stone giants and ice giants from outer space – with its gravity. Rather than crash into our planet and destroy all life here the stone and ice giants are sucked into Jupiter, by Jupiter’s gravity.
Ladies and gentlemen, rather than being a god of thunder, rain and agriculture, our dear Þôrr is really first and foremost the god of gravity. This would also explain why Þôrr, as the only god in Scandinavian mythology, has rust-red hair and beard; the planet Jupiter is rust-red.
What else did they know that the Judeo-Christians destroyed before we could found out about it? What has been lost because of them?
