Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 21, 2020

A startling message on a 1,200-year-old granite slab created by the Vikings appears to predict climate change, experts say. The research, published in Futharc: International Journal of Runic Studies, looks at the message that was written after Viking warrior Varin's son died in battle in the 9th century, foreseeing a new "climate crisis," similar to the weather conditions that happened nearly 300 years prior. "This study proposes instead that the inscription deals with an anxiety triggered by a son's death and the fear of a new climate crisis similar to the catastrophic one after 536 [AD]," researchers, led by Per Holmberg, wrote in the study's abstract.

"The other four ask issues related to the Norse god, Odin."

I don't have much to say about climate change but written right there on that slab of granite is people asking their god what to think 1200 years ago.

Posted by an atheist. Must be another beautiful religion.

Personally, I don't care what people believe but you don't even agree with yourself most of the time.
