Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

You had better call the Swedish government as well and ask them why they are lying on their country's official site.
Or, you know...they're not.

Hint: I didn't write the web site.
Another hint: Scandinavia was inhabited long before your migration occurred.

From your website: From 8,000 BC to 6,000 BC, Sweden as a whole became populated by people who lived by hunting, gathering and fishing, and who used simple stone tools. Dwelling places and graves dating from the Stone Age, lasting until about 1,800 BC, are found today in increasing numbers. The Bronze Age was marked in the Nordic region – especially in Denmark but also in Sweden – by a high level of culture, shown by the artifacts found in graves. After 500 BC, such artifacts become increasingly rare as iron came into more general use. During the early Iron Age, the population of Sweden became settled, and agriculture came to form the basis of the economy and society.

They give no evidence....only a couple of paragraphs with no back up to prove their point...nice try!

From the Pakistan Military Defense history website:

Scandinavia - most of the pantheon worshipped by the Svearna (ancestors of the Swedes) were people called the Aesir. They came from the East and fought with the extant Vanir.

This migration happened in 200-300 AD. After the fall of the Parthian Empire.

The Aesir Tribe was located around the ancient Scythian city of Gelonus A massive wooden city in central Ukraine and the Vanir tribe came from around Lake Van in eastern Turkey.

Some facts Farmmaa:

According to the 1890 American Encyclopaedia Britannica Page 2863 that Goths were not from Scandinavia

According to Gothic Historian Jordanes, the Goths were beyond Dacia (the ancient Gothic land) and to the north of the Danube River

There is no Gothic archaeological sites in Gotland Island

The earliest archaeological site on Gotland Island Sweden is during the Viking age

The first town established on Gotland Island is Visby and it started as a Viking trading center in 700 AD

The oldest town in Scandinavia is Ribe Denmark at 700 AD according to the Copenhagen Post

http://www.thelocal.dk/20141222/denmark ... han-though

Archaeologists agree that the town of Ribe in southwest Jutland is the oldest town in all of Scandinavia. Up until recently, they also agreed that the town dated back to the end of the eighth century. But a new study suggests that the historic town could actually be about 75 years older than previously believed.

Farmmaa, so can you find one of your Swedish settlements from 6,000 BC-8,000 BC. That's a lot of people to find? 10,000 years of breeding. Where are all these people you speak about? Yet the oldest settlements found is 700 AD?

What does your hunter and gathers look like? monkeys maybe? Part human and monkey? Do you have skeletons of these hunters and gathers?

Joe, perhaps what you need to do is to go back to studying - and this time try looking in to anthropology and archeology.

There are mountains of evidence of human civilizations and settlements all over the world which date back tens of thousands of years....it is not a theory.
To suggest that none of it is true because those settlements are long past abandoned is absurd.

Almost, not quite, but almost as absurd as your comment that humans 10, 000 or 20,000 years ago must have been monkeys.

LOL! Really! Cover your tracks..... :D

Show me some evidence of your claim? You have shown none except some paragraphs that need to support your claim of secular history! :1422:

How do you know you aren't being miss lead? And of course then need to keep this lie going. Trying to disprove the Holy book!

Nice try. You have proven nothing in Sweden...move onto another part of the world.

Thursday's question is ..




According to genetic and fossil evidence, archaic *bleep* sapiens evolved to anatomically modern humans solely in Africa, between 200,000 and 100,000 years ago, with members of one branch leaving Africa by 60,000 years ago and over time replacing earlier human populations such as Neanderthals and *bleep* erectus.

Proves me right again! Watch the video and see where humans are on length of his arm...LOL

Filing a very small part of the finger nail.....is the length of human existence!

I'm quite stunned actually, that in 2016 people can be so completely out of touch with science.
How can anyone really not understand how evolution works ???

As for your comments about secular education - so...not to be trusted unless it is a Christian institution? Correct ?
and...the University of Stockholm is a religious school is it ??????

Your 'holy book' is not a history text, sorry.
It is a book of tales, handed down from one person to another, written less than 2,000 years ago.

That's your 'proof' is it ?
Anything that is not contained in the bible is nonsense ? :200:

Sure hope you never have to rely on modern science, technology or medicine.
