Vinland Progeny

Vinland theories stipulate that during Solutrean times (20,000 years ago), lower sea levels greatly reduced the distance between the Celtic and the North American Continental Shelves and a connecting ice bridge eliminated the necessity of a 4,000 mile ocean voyage between Lisbon and New York City. The southern margin of this ice bridge was a relatively rich environment inhabited by migrating sea mammals, birds, and fish attracting the Solutrean people. There is reason to believe that generations of Solutrean hunters learned to cope with ice and weather conditions to follow rich resources such as Harp seals and Great Auks that migrated north and westward along with retreating ice in late spring. This journey appears to be feasible using traditional techniques still in use today, technology which would have been available to the Solutrean people. Through such activities they arrived (by accident or design) along the exposed continental shelf of North America discovering a New Land, centuries prior to Norse sailors discovering Helluland, Markland, and Vinland.

While Vikings explored, the Blamdr stayed and learned to give reason for their sedentary lives if not when resorting to war. Their pure lineage, just as they, will give all excuse and ill repute, to avoid responsibility. Many of this lineage was extricated from Blaeland and now lead productive lives within Vinland, coincidentally, many do not. The Skrælingi are mostly missing, their lineage is intensely combined with The Svartr or Blamdr, but fend a firm hold on their fair share of land below the Norse realm, concentrated in the southwest, with the Blamdr in the southeast, though both are residents of a Vinland of freedom. A small portion of the Skrælingi seek revolution in the name of their fallen ancestors, which were many in number and clan.

Though pejorative faiths and their many wars, each to all, may be lingering it is not the dominant faith. Still heralding the names of Pagan or Heathen, worship is free in every aspect. These faiths still hold tenets absconded from the Viking way of life, keeping the similarities of such tales as The Christ Lord, and The Allfather, the omnipotent omniscient of many faiths, in keeping counterparts of noted gods bearing new names, offering a plethora of congregations for visitors to attend of every denomination and religion.

For those outside the realm of the Vikings, this is not polytheism, it is apotheosis and the struggle toward quintessence. There is a hierarchy, to remind us of the evils that arise from power structures. Many gods ruled by a higher power, the same as religion, except life comes before suffering, and humanity precedes the petty needs for persuasion in the feeble minds of dogmatic neanderthals. In an intellectual clarity, there is no ethic without logic. It is in this respect of time that our analogy for the end of the world is Ouroboros, so that we must respect science for the truth is that we must consume to survive, but respect life unless to confront a predator.
