The Vikings! – Crash Course World History 224



In which John Green teaches you about Vikings! That’s right, one of our most requested subjects, the Vikings, right here on Crash Course. So what’s the deal with Vikings? Well, the stuff you’ve heard about them may not be true. The Vikings weren’t just pagan raiders striking terror into the hearts of defenseless European Christendom. They were some of the greatest travelers of their time, and they weren’t always traveling to steal. In a lot of cases, they were traveling to trade. John will teach you about Viking trade goods, Norse Mythology, and yes, there will be blood, guts, and dragons. OK?

  1. HARMONY OF HUMAN UNITY

    Oh man! Read the following verses carefully, then think, meditate and reflect among entire mankind in order to maintain the harmony of human unity as well as to annihilate riot, bloodshed, discriminations and all such mischievous activities. Remember that 1000 species of Lord’s creatures are praying and glorifying Him by their souls. Therefore, it is the inevitable duty of mankind bestowed with intelligence to act in order to keep the earth and universe in its equilibrium utilizing Adhikr—the Balance and Trust from the Impartial Lord.

    4: 1
    Oh mankind, heed your Lord Who has created you from a single soul, and created its mate from it, and from them both scattered so many men and women; and heed Allah about Whom you will be asked, and heed the wombs; certainly Allah is ever watching over you.

    The soul of everyone is from the Lord itself. None has the right to select their parents or children. So there is no chance for partiality among mankind. The ‘aim of life’ should be to identify the Lord, confirm oneself as believer and to prepare Paradise in the 4th phase in order to inherit it in the 7th phase utilizing Adhikr—the Insight.

    53: 45-46
    He is the One Who creates in pairs male and female, when the semen drop is emitted.

    No one has the right to select sex (gender). Lord is the owner of the body as well as the soul. So there shouldn’t be any differentiation between male and female.

    30:21
    And among His signs that He created for you mates among yourselves, for you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between you; indeed in that, there are clear evidences for the people who think and reflect.

    So sexual intercourse should only be conducted in between male and female from the mankind, and it should be in between the married spouses. All others who do sodomy, unmarried sexual activities etc. are Mujrims (madmen who don’t think and reflect the aim of life).

    64: 2
    He is the One Who created you all, and among you there is disbeliever and among you there is believer; and Allah is observing whatever you do.

    Each individual has to utilize Adhikr to become a believer. All others who received the Book are disbelievers.

    76: 3
    Indeed, We gave him option to select the way, either to be grateful or ungrateful.

    Since the Lord is Impartial everyone has the right to be grateful or ungrateful, and therefore even the parents have no right to compel their children to become so and so.

    2: 256
    There should be no compulsion in ‘Dheen’ (religion), the right way has been made clear from the wrong way; therefore whoever rejects with the arrogant ones and believes with Allah has grasped the Firmest Rope which will never break, Allah is All Hearing, All Knowing.

    ‘Firmest Rope’ which is extended from the Paradise to the earth is Adhikr. Without testifying It nobody becomes believer and enters to the paradise. Read together 31: 22.

    25: 68
    The beloved servants of Allah don’t appeal to any other deity besides Allah, nor kill any soul whom Allah has forbidden except for Truth, and will not fornicate; if anyone does so, he is fallen in crimes.

    The believer who considers Lord as impartial shouldn’t kill any soul (living thing). Believer shall not undergo or wish to undergo sexual intercourse with others than his/her spouse.

    From the Book " The Ultimate victory is for Islam…. But not through Muslims!!! "

Oh and while you're Google pictures of my beautiful country I'm gonna be having a free heart transplant, not because I need one but because free health care motha fucka… Oh and our side of Niagara falls is better.

  3. IDK who's fact checking these, but wow. What we know comes from Christian propaganda of the 13th century, huh? Never heard of the "Anglo-Saxon Chronicles" or the "Battle of Maldon," I guess. Tolkien is rolling over in his grave, and you sit on a throne of lies, CC.

  4. So, are you not going to mention that the term Vikings is actually just the word used to describe the raiders instead the whole of norse people?

  5. You said the Greek Pantheon and the Roman Pantheon are different, but not very much. Roman mythology is based of Greek mythology by renaming most, but not all, of the gods, and then making a few of their own.

  6. Berzerkers, The witches and magicians, Life after death, The Tattoos, human sacriface, The Gods, the sacred animals, magic mushrooms, Alot of drinking beer… The magic viking runes used in WW2.. And last but not least the day of winter soltice christmas.. Crash course of the Vikings
