I was on Facebook and reading the duffel blog when they posted an article about practicing norse pagan marines wanting to adorn their uniforms for combat in proper religious articles. I googled norse paganism and discovered the Germanic neo-paganism article on Wikipedia and proceeded to do further research, including books written for practicing Asatru and Odinist heathens on Amazon.
I see a primary driver for interest in pre-Christianity European religious practices as a reaction to Christianity's adaptations to the Globalism in the modern age and how many of European descent might feel somewhat lost in a modern multicultural secular society and how Christianity universalist message may not appeal to their desire to connect to their ancient heritages.
University Student and Marine Veteran, I've recently discovered Asatru and Odinism and am interested in learning more about it. It is very hard to find people and groups.
