Norse Creation. Mark, Eric, James, Ben, McKenna. The Story.
Mark, Eric, James, Ben, McKenna
The heat and cold from Muspell and Niflhiem met in the void to create the world. The first human, Buri, had a child, Bor. Bor had 3 children: Odin (the All-Father), Vili, and Ve. They killed Ymir, a frost ogre, and used his body to create the features of earth. Midgard is the realm of humans, and Asgard is the realm of the gods, where Odin rules. The gods are represented by a great ash tree called Yggdrasil.
Based on our analysis of the Norse creation myth, we adjudicated that in Norse culture, the nords believe that:
-Art showed powerful beings in misty settings, showed their strength and wisdom
-In the film Thor, the frost giants are shown to be the archenemies of Odin and the gods of Asgard
How are the values taught in this myth similar or different from the other creation myths we read? How do they reflect humanity in general?
