comment Written sources that mention Macedonia, prior to the 19th century?
Ok. I can understand that, and I do sympathize. Although I think the History.SE crowd can handle a bit of controversy every now and then. See, for example, how the community treated this related question: Was Alexander the Great Greek or Macedonian?.

comment Did the Vikings practice voluntary human sacrifice?
I don't think the question is about the blood eagle. Although there is one instance of it shown in the series, it's clearly an execution and not voluntary sacrifice.

comment What did the letter theta symbolize in ancient Greece?
@PieterGeerkens We could, however, prove that the Greeks used a different letter to signify thought or life. This would strongly suggest that Hubbard was talking nonsense.
