Jesus suffered for 7 hours on the cross, Odin did it for 9 days.
Christians like to go on and on about how Jesus died for our sins. Blah, blah blah.
Sure, Jesus suffered on the cross for a mere 7 hours. Is that really that much of an accomplishment for the supposed son of God. And the results of this action were to die for the sins of man.
Well, I still see plenty of sinful people in the world, so I guess his sacrifice wasn’t too effective.
Lets compare this to Odin who hung upside down from the Tree of Life for fucking 9 days!
9 Days of suffering in agony.
He did this so that humans would have the gift of writing and the magic of the runes.
So go cry to yo “virgin” mamma Jesus.
The Norse Gods will kick your ass any day of the week – which are incidently named after them.
Thursday, Thor’s Day – just sayin.
While it is stated that Odin did hang himself, there is no evidence he did it for humanity since it was Heimdall who passed knowledge of the runes down to us.

I’m pretty sure Odin did it for himself…

A little late to the party here but here’s my 2 cents: When Odin did it, he WAS a god, whereas when Jesus did it, he was in his mere human form, so it’s not a fair comparison. I think seven hours is pretty good considering. Jesus was no wuss! I wonder how long you or I could last nailed to a cross out in the elements.
Regardless of what you believe, in terms of comparative religions, it’s interesting to see such obvious parallels between two religions formed in completely different areas of the world. Even the part about being pierced by a spear is similar. And, before anyone tries to say that the gospel writers jacked that idea from the Norse, I highly doubt that Jewish writers at the time were even aware of the old Norse religion, let alone knowing exact details of one of their stories.
My theory: we all worship the same God (or gods if you prefer), but we all see him/her/them differently, depending on where we’re from. Look at the various creation myths of various cultures around the world. How many involve a flood story? Co-incidence? I think not… but whatever – rock on… \m/
