2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Starter books on Norse/Heathen/Asatru
« on: July 07, 2012, 10:27:34 am »
I'm looking for explorer-friendly books and resources on Norse mythology, Heathen and/or Asatru religious material.

If a thread on this has already been done, I apologize but would appreciate if you could point me in the right direction.

E-books and online resources would be most convenient. Thanks!

Temple of Our Heathen Gods has a large online library as does Northvegr.

Our Troth is also online and is one of my favorite introductory books.

The pace of progress in artificial intelligence (I’m not referring to narrow AI) is incredibly fast. [...] The risk of something seriously dangerous happening is in the five year timeframe. 10 years at most.--Elon Musk

I am in the camp that is concerned about super intelligence," [Bill] Gates wrote. "First the machines will do a lot of jobs for us and not be super intelligent. That should be positive if we manage it well. A few decades after that though the intelligence is strong enough to be a concern. I agree with Elon Musk and some others on this and don\'t understand why some people are not concerned."

My 101 book was Diana Paxson's Essential Asatru: Walking the Path of Norse Paganism. It's a good introduction to liberal-to-moderate Asatru. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be in ebook format.

I also like Galina Krasskova's Exploring the Northern Tradition but with a caveat that the author is quite controversial in Heathen circles, so tread carefully. I say read all you can and make up your own mind.
