RE: Let's Explore the Northern Lights

The things people will believe, this one really made me laugh

The lights would help in childbirth for Icelandic women as long as they didn’t look at the lights. If they did, the child would be cross-eyed.



With our modern understanding it is easy to laugh at many of the ancient beliefs. They didn't have the benefit of understanding the bigger picture of how things worked.

I remember reading Jean Auel's books on ancient societies and how for them a woman becoming pregnant was a mystery. They experienced the sexual urges and acted on them but had no awareness that sexual relations is where pregnancy came from.

Crazy, right? It's so natural for us to think critically we sometimes forget where we came from!
