There was nowhere to review it, but I had a few nit-picks with it.

  • Abnoba is a Gaulish (Celtic) Goddess of forests and rivers. She is not attested with the moon or hunting, and is only speculated of being in relation to Diana. There's no strong evidence that she is significantly relatable to Diana.
  • Brighid - a Tri-Goddess - is a Celtic Goddess of fire and various artisan crafts. Nowhere is she comparable to Juno/Hera.
  • Freyja is the Norse Goddess of love, fertility, and battle. She only shares similarity with Aphrodite in that they are "love goddesses," yet Freyja behaves nothing like Aphrodite. In fact, for three of the Goddesses listed in question 9, it is exceedingly misleading to say that the Celtic and Germanic Goddesses are "Also Known As" with the Greco-Roman "counterparts." The only one that this works for is Athena/Minerva.
  • Tarot, as a form of mysticism, began in 18th century Europe. It is believed that they are derived from the Book of Thoth (not on the options,) but this is speculation at best.

There's no chance that quiz's creator will ever, EVER see this post. So if you want the quiz creator to see all this, then you'll have to contact them directly.

In addition, it's been 2.5 years since they edited the test, so they might not be maintaining it anymore (though they created the test way back in 2005, so it's impressive that they continued to edit it 5 years later).

True, it's just stuff that bugged me. Figured it'd make for a moderate topic.

I have Pagan on one of my fantasy baseball teams, but I don't use him too often.
