Yesterday when I read “The Grand Design” by “Stephen Hawking” I get a paragraph where he wrote, I exactly quoted it then I start my thought:
Now after that I started to do a small study on Exact Norse Mythology on this myth. Then I read that there: http://www.gutenberg...7-h/24737-h.htm
And I quoted it also:
Also there was another earth at that time, an earth green and beautiful. But the terrible winds that blew leveled down forests and hills and dwellings. Then fire came and burnt the earth. There was darkness, for the Sun and the Moon were devoured. The Gods had met with their doom. And the time in which all these things happened was called Ragnarök, the Twilight of the Gods.”
Now Look at the term in the last line “Ragnarök, the Twilight of the Gods”. Now from another study I get about this “Ragnarök, the Twilight of the Gods” and what it is?
Now I want to reveal my point of thought and what I want to say.
Here, if Ragnarǫk is a “is a series of future events” then it is not possible to start and end in some moments like an Eclipse event. Then, the myth tells about Ragnarok, it must not tells us about any eclipse. If they tells us that two wolf devour Sun and Moon that is not the story of sun or moon eclipse. And also I can say that this two events (sun and moon eclipse) cannot occur in the same time that’s for sure. So, If they tells us the end of sun and moon in the same time that means a vast or massive change in our solar system. And that also they told us. They named it also as ,”Ragnarok”. Now, that means they are telling about a destruction or devastation in the galaxy or solar system and that could be the “Great Disaster”. Now I think nobody should neglect the old myth as I heartily feel that ancient times are more intelligent and advanced than us and they also know the space very well. Except that, how they wrote about the rainbow bridge which connect Asgard and Earth? How they thought about outer world except our World? Even todays modern age, if you go to an interior village, they also not famillier that there are many many other worlds in our galaxy like our earth. They must wonder to know it. Isn’t it? So, if the writers of norse mythology does not know about any advanced civilizations other than us, how they imagine and wrote many many stories? I don’t say that every story of them are real and they have any real existence. But my point is, they must know about galaxies, other planets etc. Other than they cannot think about that. And what Stephen Hawking said in his book, I think he take them lightly as most of the scientist have a tendancy to just neglect the ancient myths as they are sure all ancients are fool. Just reply if I am false and where I am right or wrong. Thank you.
