About Asatru

 

*The following was found on the http://www.theasatru.com/ website and for the most part is a very well written piece.*

Modern Asatru, which is open to anyone, regardless of race, ethnic origin,

 or sexual orientation was organized in the 1970s, almost simultaneously in

 Iceland, the USA and the UK.

While devoid of rigid dogma, Asatru is by no means amoral. It is in fact

 founded on the Nine Noble Virtues:

Courage,

Truth,

Honor,

Loyalty,

Hospitality,

Industriousness,

Perseverance,

Self-discipline,

and Self-reliance.

From these individuals can decided upon the appropriate course of action

in any situation and honor themselves, their families, the communities

and their gods by striving to do what is right. The gods organized the

universe from chaotic material. The remaining chaos allows for a random

factor, which helps the universe keep evolving.

Not even the gods are all-powerful, so perfection is neither required nor

respected.
