I think you completely missed my point when I complained about the
sentence having Odin/Woden in the FAQ. The FAQ is supposed be
NEUTRAL on issues that would be considered contraversial. Yet, as it
is, the FAQ makes a statement which clearly supports one side of the
issue, to the exclusion of the other opinion (i.e., that Odin/Woden is
completely mythical), which by the way, is by far the majority opinion
in the scholarly literature.
Why should the FAQ present only the minority opinion?
