The north portal of the 11th century Urnes stave church has been interpreted as containing depictions of snakes and dragons that represent Ragnarök[1]


In Norse mythology, Ragnarök (UK /ˈrɑːɡnəˌrɒk/,[2] also written Ragnarok, US /ˈræɡnəˌrɒk/[3]) is a series of future events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and returning gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors. Ragnarök is an important event in the Norse canon, and has been the subject of scholarly discourse and theory.
The event is attested primarily in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In the Prose Edda, and a single poem in the Poetic Edda, the event is referred to as Ragnarök or Ragnarøkkr (Old Norse "Fate of the Gods" or "Twilight of the Gods" respectively), a usage popularized by 19th-century composer Richard Wagner with the title of the last of his Der Ring des Nibelungen operas, Götterdämmerung (1876).

Well not as much hype as the Mayan calendar or what?

With the Moon in Scorpio on February 22, 2014, the world will end. Scorpio is the Zodiac sing of death and re-birth and the Sun in the Pisces the bearer of water and life. According the Norse mythology, February 22, 2014 is the day of Ragnarok when the Earth splits open and there is a war of good and evils: God and Goddess from Asgard

According to Norse mythology the Vikings have their own version of doomsday and it is fast approaching.

The end of the world has come and gone several times over the last few years, from the turn of the millennium to the Mayan apocalypse, mankind seems obsessed with the fear of armageddon and the demise of all life as we know it.

Ragnarok: One Month Left Before Viking Apocalypse Ends Life on Earth

  • By Hannah Osborne , January 22, 2014 12:41 PM GMT


There is just one month left before the Viking apocalypse is upon us, at which point the nine worlds of the cosmos will be destroyed in a cataclysmic event.
Ragnarok, or the end of the world, will begin when the wolf, Fenrir, son of Loki, breaks out of his prison. A chain reaction will then take place, with the Midgard snake Jormungand rising from the sea and a wolf devouring the sun.
These events will accumulate in a huge battle, where the Gods, mankind and all races from the nine worlds will fight.
According to the Jorvic Viking Festival, which takes place in York every February, these events were prophesied by Odin, who had hung himself from Yggdrasill, the world tree, for nine days so he could die and be re-born with wisdom and foresight.
