>In Aztec mythology, the Centzon Totochtin (Nahuatl pronunciation: [sent͡son toːˈtoːt͡ʃtin] "four-hundred rabbits"; also Centzontotochtin) are a group of divine rabbits who meet for frequent drunken parties. They include Tepoztecatl, Texcatzonatl, Colhuatzincatl, Macuiltochtli ("five-rabbit"), and Ometotchtli ("two-rabbit"). Their parents were Patecatl and Mayahuel, and they may have been brothers of Ixtlilton.

>Their destruction is part of the myth of Huitzilopochtli's birth. One day Huitzilopochtli's mother Coatlicue is sweeping the temple where she serves. When Coyolxauhqui and the Centzon Totochtin hear about this, they are livid, and attack and prepare to decapitate her. Just prior to or at the moment Coatlicue is decapitated, Huitzilopochtli leaps fully armed out of her womb, cuts off Coyolxauhqui's head, and throws her off the temple. The Centzon Totochtin try to escape, but Huitzilopochtli either rips out their hearts, decapitates them, throws them off the temple, or stabs them. Copil's heart is thrown onto the island where Tenochtitlan was to be founded.

>Aztec priests used this myth to try to justify their ritual of human sacrifice.

A lot of the things regarding his birth and youth were taken from Jewish folklore in order to make sure that he fulfilled their prophecies for the Messiah.

And due to their location, and the fact the definitive Torah hadn't been compiled yet, Jewish folklore had absorbed and mixed with folklore from other religions.

Not saying the wandering prophet didn't exist, but obviously some other myths would permeate into his background. Especially for things he would have probably never talked with his disciples about.

Daughter of Jove, almighty and divine, come, blessed queen, and to these rites incline:
Only-begotten, Pluto's honor'd wife, O venerable Goddess, source of life:
'Tis thine in earth's profundities to dwell, fast by the wide and dismal gates of hell:
Jove's holy offspring, of a beauteous mien, fatal, with lovely locks, infernal queen:
Source of the Furies, whose blest frame proceeds from Jove's ineffable and secret seeds:
Mother of Bacchus, Sonorous, divine, and many-form'd, the parent of the vine:
The dancing Hours attend thee, essence bright, all-ruling virgin, bearing heav'nly light:
Illustrious, horned, of a bounteous mind, alone desir'd by those of mortal kind.
O, vernal queen, whom grassy plains delight, sweet to the smell, and pleasing to the sight:
Whose holy form in budding fruits we view, Earth's vig'rous offspring of a various hue:
Espous'd in Autumn: life and death alone to wretched mortals from thy power is known:
For thine the task according to thy will, life to produce, and all that lives to kill.
Hear, blessed Goddess, send a rich increase of various fruits from earth, with lovely Peace;
Send Health with gentle hand, and crown my life with blest abundance, free from noisy strife;
Last in extreme old age the prey of Death, dismiss we willing to the realms beneath,
To thy fair palace, and the blissful plains where happy spirits dwell, and Pluto reigns.

>>672233

Abrahamic (well mostly Judaeo-Christian) is actually pretty deep and elaborate if you study it further and are well versed within it.

No mythological monsters have as much named characters as angels. not giants, not dragons, not elves

Most people have no idea about their nature, and can't name more than say - Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel (only ones necessary to know named in the Bible, and they're not even most important - Metatron and Sandalphon are). But there is over 9000 (literally) of them, many have well defined traits and characters. extra-cannonnical literature is rich, very rich

there is even fucking more known devils and demons, each one responsible for something. Satan, Lucifer, Mastema, Azazel, Belial... no, those are not synonyms

especially christian europe, which syncresied with its pagan faiths and preserved much of it otherwise unknown for us. it also borned many new monsters, otherwise unknown before
succubi and incubi, gargolyes, etc
in similar way to buddhism actually

judaism itself had some too - golem, leviathan, ziz, behemoth

you can corelate heroes and gods of pagan religions with saints and prophets, angels (which is many interpret they were - just deified heroes). quite literally, angels were called Elohim or Bene Elohim, which means Gods, or God-like beings, and sons of them

then there are them of course, fucking gnostics, who often define it diverted by 90°. oh boy how mindfucking all of this stuff is, I'm still not greenpilled enough to grasp it

How do you justify Ali being a follower of Muhummad who was obviously against any man being considered God? Seriously how do you live with that contradiction for even a second?

Also are you Duzre? What do you think about Hakim bi-Amrillah? Was he God incarnated to you too?

>From the time She first appeared ANANKE was entwined in the serpentine coils of Her mate, the time-god KHRONOS
>Together They surrounded the primal egg of solid matter in their constricting coils and split it into its constituent parts: Earth, Heaven and Sea, and so brought about the creation of the ordered Universe

>ANANKE and KHRONOS remain entwined as the cosmic-circling forces of fate and time--driving the rotation of the heavens and the never-ending passage of time

Most of the bible is actually pretty fucking radical if you treat it as mythology rather then just a holy text, it's a shame so few things actually go the full mile with using all the crazy shit n there, only thing I can think of is a video game called el shaddai: ascension of the metatron.
>>
>>673616
THICK
>>
>>673623
Yes, please refer to my post >>672737
El Shaddai was nice, wish there were more games played around those themes (our "mythology" overall).
SMT extensively featured the lore, but also all the other world mythologies - kinda like D&D, except more close to the source in many ways (I loved their presentation of Metatron, I learned of existence of St. Patrick's guardian angel, Victoricus). Yet YHVH was the strongest god.
Conflict of Behemoth, Leviathan and Ziz was even featured as founding legend of 3rd generation Pokémon, R/S/E. As were - way too many - Golems.

>>672737
Hmm, I've read so much on that but without good sources. It's mostly deep reading into essays I find around internet, wish it had good quotations (I'm desperately trying to localise Pope St. Gregory's sermon naming original 7 Catholic "Archangels" for example), originally I sticked to angelologist hobbyists like BLyy and their posts, but that was when my knowledge of English wasn't so good (I was doing my research first in Polish web naturally).
I can recomend Dictionary of Angels including the Fallen Angels if you're into names as much as I do (won't lie, this is sole purpose I began studying angeolology, demonology to the lesser degree), it's probably most easiest book to find.
I personally reccomend the forum Megadriel, owners does EXTENSIVE research to publish that knowledge
Here's for example one on the Gnostic Angels, Archons and Aeons:
http://z8.invisionfree.com/Megadriel/index.php?showtopic=367
(Original purpose was asking on who the hell are Archaias you see so often linked with Archangels in the new age tier stuff, well looks like they derive from syzygiums)

Main problem is that if you want to be really redpilled on that you should know the original languages and study the material yourself.

Latin, Greek, Coptic, Aramaic and Hebrew. Most materials, including the "apocrypha" are in them. Would you believe me if I told you I meet one Polish Priest living in Spain who knew them all? He helped me decipher meaning of the name Oriphiel - Light of God (misattributed to Uriel)

I haven't read much books onto topic, I'm not sure if they even exist. Mostly quotes pulled out from them.

So as you can imagine my knowledge is still relatively small.
