The Alaska Outlaw Forn Sidr is the culmination of three decades of religious studies, interlaced with substantial amounts of cultural psychology, intersecting with my personal discovery of my own ancestry and cultural beliefs. I have come to understand the definition of who, and what I am in relationship to the world around me, as well as my context within my community. I have chosen to travel a different spiritual path based on the knowledge gained, and wisdom earned from my years in academia. As a counselor for my veteran brethren who have returned home, I have witnessed, first-hand, the psychological carnage created by the beliefs of organized monotheistic religions in the modern-day. In addition, like many of you, I have witnessed the excessive wealth surrounding the exploitation of everyday people by their lack of understanding that which they cannot see, by a select few. I have personally examined these conditions at their deepest level, beyond theology through psychology and into the realm of philosophy. With thousands of hours spent unraveling the misguided understanding of basic life principles, I have engaged in a personal journey of an even deeper understanding.
The path of discovery that I traveled led me back to my Germanic-Dane ancestry. My great-grandparents, migrating to the United States of America a mere three generations ago. Further research, going further back in time to realize the evolution of the Germanic tribes of northern Germany and southern Denmark, to escape the Roman Empire, to form the most formidable warriors to walk the planet.
These earlier warriors formed a unique, and rich culture that lasted for millennia in myth and legend. It was the underlying beliefs behind this culture that has inspired and called me home. While many may contend that those “old Norse ways” were polytheistic, they embraced a more pagan belief system, with the emphasis being placed on “the self”. Whether discussing the ideas or “role models” or “noble virtues” these underlying beliefs that were threatened by organized monotheistic oppression, have survived for a multitude of reasons.
Some, have discovered the true power and righteousness within this practice. They have discovered that the monotheistic practices that would follow, would only provide a defined, predictable method to control and manipulate the general population. While I continue to seek new knowledge, and building my collective wisdom, I finally feel that I am spiritually home here with my Germanic-Dane paganistic beliefs.
Recently, I have validated the ancestral association by completing two (2) in-depth DNA research studies that have verified my strong connection with the rich Germanic-Dane ancestry. This led me to continue my exploration of the spiritual understanding which then provided me with an in-depth application of this understanding to both: understand my own journey, as well as assist others in discovering their journeys.
Please feel free to review the many different areas of this site. The site has been constructed based on my own personal experience and studies of theology and psychology throughout the decades leading up to this. Main areas to consider visiting:
Om Mig (About Me) – These areas outline the personal journey of discovery that I have completed. Within these pages are the psychological and theological hurdles I have overcome to arrive at my personal beliefs. In addition, these areas define where I stand in the arena of worship and spiritual support.
Tanker (Thoughts) – This area outlines my own personal thoughts as to what it means to be a pagan in today’s world that has been molded by mainstream religions. This area also contains some of my theological and psychological studies looking at the after-effects of the religious experience.
Tro (Beliefs) – This area outlines my own personal beliefs where the mainstream religions have attempted to crush other beliefs in an attempt to enforce their way. This area speaks to the research I’ve completed identifying the population manipulation later referred to as “religion”.
Historisk (Historical) – This area defines many of the beliefs of the “Old Norse” or Norse mythology. While I attempt to decouple the Christian translations that were written into the oral traditions as the church converted many.
Spørgsmål (Questions) – If you are new to the Norsk ways, then feel free to start your quest through our site at our questions answered section. Here I answer some questions that I have been asked about my beliefs.
After decades of ideological studies through most of the recognized religions of the world, I used both my mind (to theorize the evolution of cognitive thought of the evolving human species), as well as my heart (to consider what felt “right”), and have ultimately arrived at the practice of my ancestors.

What the Mainstream Churches refer to as
What does it mean to be a pagan in the modern-day world, especially here in the United States? It means that I don’t believe the same things that most people do. It means that I have removed the societal enforcement of “good” or “evil”, or “right and wrong”. These intrinsic values that are passed through the many hundreds of generations are the reason that I have come to recognize monotheistic religions (ie. Christianity, Muslim, Judaism, etc.) as the societal population control protocols that they are.
