Statement of Faith

Statement of Faith

I believe that the beginnings of this planet, and of man as a species, are too obscured by time for any rational being to attempt to make a definitive statement about their origins.

I believe that human free will exists.

I believe that numinous intelligences exist, by whatever name, and that some of these are sufficiently superhuman in power to merit being called gods.

I believe that Odin Stormbringer, once widely acknowledged in Scandinavia, is such a being, and that he has consented to be my patron.

I believe that I have lived many times before, and that my personality has changed very little over time.

I believe that the following behaviors and concepts are sacred to Odin, and I attempt to display them: Honor (Oathkeeping), Courage, Justice, Freedom, Dignity, Courtesy, Hospitality, and Cleverness.

I call myself an Odinsson; I do not worship, I follow. Worship, like Cowardice and Oathbreaking, is odious to Odin.
