In Norse mythology, Thor (Old High GermanDonar”) is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, and the protection of mankind (i.e., the “Line of Man”). Thor is the son of the Norse god Odin and is ascribed three abodes (i.e., “Bilskirnir”, “Þrúðheimr”, and “Þrúðvangr”), otherwise known as the three dens or homes of Rome (i.e., Island of Crete, Island of Sicily, and the Island of Greenland). Because Thor is a Greco-Roman deity, he is prominently mentioned throughout the recorded history of the Roman occupation of Germania as well as the Viking Age. In Norse mythology, Thor bears at least fourteen names and is generally described as fierce-eyed, red-haired and red-bearded. Thor has red hair because after the Romans moved to Greenland, they interbred with the native giants of Greenland and therefore exhibit white skin, blue or green eyes, and red hair. In other words, the Romans have the luck (i.e., look) of the Irish. The number “14” equates to “X” in the Roman Score (i.e., the Roman alphabet) while the letter “N” in the Roman English alphabet. Acronymically speaking, the letter “X” equates to “death” while the letter “N” equates to “North”, the direction to Greenland. Consequently, Thor's exploits, include the relentless slaughter of his foes and fierce battles with the monstrous serpent Jörmungandr who grew so large that he was able to surround the earth and grasp his own tail. The Midgard Serpent (i.e., Jörmungandr) myth is an apparent reference to cannon laden Greco-Roman dragon ships which encircled Greenland, guarding it from the underworld. In what appears to be a referenced to the giants of Greenland, the poem Poetic Edda entitled “Þrymskviða” states that the giant “Þrymr” stole Mjölnir (i.e., Thor’s hammer) and then demands the goddess Freyja in exchange. After an unsuccessful hostage negotiation, Thor rips destroys Þrymr and his giant cohorts. Tributes to Thor’s name and likeness are found throughout modern art, cartoons, comics, culture, film, literature, television series, and video games (see below), making him possible the most celebrated of all the Greco-Roman gods. Grammatical tributes to Thor are found throughout the English lexicon (e.g., author, authority, there, etc.), the most prominent of which is "Thursday" (i.e., “Thor’s Day”) and the number “three”. The consonant letters of "T" and "R" found in the name of Thor (T+R) are evident today in the official name of at least 5 languages originating out of Europe, all of which are close in proximity to Greenland (e.g., Norwegian/Bokmål (torsdag); Norwegian/Nynorsk (torsdag); Danish (torsdag); Swedish (torsdag); and Finnish (torstai).


Symbols of Thor

Thor, who is most often associated with thunder and lightning, wields a mountain-crushing hammer entitled Mjölnir, wears the belt Megingjörð, the iron gloves Járngreipr, and owns the staff Gríðarvölr. Similar to the lightning bolts wielded by Zeus, Thor is associated with lighting because it’s a symbolic metaphor for Roman gunpowder, the single greatest reason for the rise of the Roman Empire. Mjölnir, which is interpreted as meaning "That which smashes", is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains. In the Old Norse texts, Mjölnir is identified as “hamarr” or “hammer", a word that which also means "stone, rock, cliff", a possible reference to the rock of Greenland, otherwise known as the North Pole. Consequently, a Thor-like hammer is found in the coat of arms of Belize, New Zealand, Transnistria, the seal of Niue, as well as on the flag of the former Soviet Union. Thor’s Mjölnir (i.e., hammer) is also found in the coat of arms of the Torsås Municipality in Sweden. Interestingly, in May of 2013, the "Hammer of Thor" was added to the list of United States Department of Veterans Affairs’ emblems for headstones and markers. The swastika (i.e., Nazi) symbol has long been identified as a sacred symbol of Thor. According to Germanic paganism and Celtic paganism scholar Hilda Ellis Davidson, "The protective sign of [Thor's] hammer...seems to have been used by the warrior...in the form of the swastika". Since World War II, the swastika has been associated with Nazism, the “Master Race” and fascism, all which were originally spawned by the Romans in Greenland. Similar to the Norse god Odin, Thor is associated with oak trees for they are used to hang the bleeding victims used in Roman blood sacrifices.

Hathor

Similar to most other Greco-Roman gods and goddesses, Thor has counterparts in other religions and mythologies. "Hathor", who is depicted as "Mistress of the West", is the Egyptian goddess of music, dance, foreign lands and fertility. Like Thor, Hathor was worshipped in Canaan, a Biblical code word for Greenland. The name of “Hathor” (H+T+H+R) and Thor (T+H+R) are consonantly identical, minus the letter “H” which is generally silent and equates to “infinity” and “forever”. Hathor was commonly identified as a cow whose four legs which may equate to the four-armed swastika identified with Thor. The notion that Hathor has the same bloodthirsty qualities as Thor is depicted in an Egyptian myth which states that Ra communicated through Hathor's third Eye that some people in the land were planning to assassinate him. Consequently, Hathor became so angry that she became Sekhmet, a war goddess to destroy them. As Sekhmet, Hathor became bloodthirsty and the slaughter was great because she could not be stopped. Similar to the Egyptian goddess Isis, a sun is depicted atop the head of Hathor, a symbolic reference to Roman gunpowder which gave the Greco-Roman Empire unrivaled naval supremacy. Hathor is generally depicted holding the “ankh” which is alleged to be an Egyptian hieroglyphic character that is known as “key of life”. Although being “Egyptian” in origin, the “ankh” features the arrow shape of the Island of Rhodes intersected with the Greek cross of Tau which also doubles as the Crete-shaped fasces. The Temple of Hathor at Dendera in Egypt coincidently exhibits Greek columns, further confirming that Ancient Egypt is just political cover for the Greoc-Roman Empire. Lastly, according to “The Lost Gods Of England” (1957) by historian Brian Branston, "the description and exploits of the Hindu god Indra fit Norse Thor exactly: both have red hair and a red beard; both are great trenchermen and smiters of tremendous blows; both are equipped with thunderbolts; both are serpent slayers; and both are protectors of mankind against their enemies”. Whether other gods besides Hathor and Indra share Thor-like qualities is not known, but it’s highly likely. In reality, most if not all of the gods and goddesses found in Egyptian, Phoenician, Greek, Roman, Sumerian, Hindu, Viking and Norse mythologies are Greco-Roman in nature.
