God's Waterfall

Goðafoss, or 'waterfall of the gods', in Iceland is truly breathtaking. In the year 1000, the law speaker Thorgeir Ljosvetningagodi made Christianity the official religion of Iceland. Soon after, he threw the statues of the Norse gods into the waterfall thereby naming the falls Goðafoss.
