most vikings did not convert until around 1000 AD

And even then, they hedged their bets.

If you look at the old stave churches in Scandinavia, you find that the steeples have dragon heads flanking them. They weren't too sure about this new-fangled religion coming along so they built the churches with the old pagan symbols plastered all over them so that just in case it didn't work out, they could still use the building.


Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.
