I'm sorry, you were saying...?
Ahem...sorry, but, the fact of the matter is that you were proved to be wrong on a minor issue and I can't take you at face value any more.
Should I use the Aztecs' interpretation of the eclipse as a more suitable analogy next time?
Sorry you did not prove me wrong. If you had bothered to click on both Loki's parents in the link you yourself provided you would have seen they were giants and not Gods.
54. Then comes Sigfather's[ that is Othinn who has been just been slain. | mighty son,
Vithar, to fight | with the foaming wolf [Fenrir] ;
In the giant's son Loki | does he thrust his sword
Full to the heart: | his father is avenged.- Bellows translation of the poetic Edda
The prose and poetic Edda can be read here fully translated and they are the main sources for any knowledge of Scandinavian and Teutonic mythology http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/poe/index.htm and here http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/pre/index.htm
By your silly standard everything you say should be rejected because you both borrow an entirely made up tale by Stephen Hawkings and then turn a half witch half giant into a God. Everyone is wrong occasionally even in subject on which they are expert.
