Zoroastrianism and its Relation to Noah’s Ark

zoroastrianism

Zoroastrianism is one of the world’s oldest monotheistic religions, founded by the prophet Zoroaster in ancient Iraq, approximately 3500 years ago. The central God of the religion is a deity named Ahura Mazda, who is often depicted as sitting inside a winged disc. According to the Zoroastrian text referred to as the “Vendidad”, it was foretold to the prince Yima that a future cataclysm was on the horizon which included a long serpent making it’s way to the Earth ushering in a winter unlike any seen before, perhaps interpreted in the modern day as an asteroid strike. Yima was provided detailed instructions to build an underground asylum referred to as a “vara”. Yima was also instructed to collect a vast seed bank repertoire and to collect a male and female of every animal used for livestock. It is hypothesized by some scholars that this story was mistaken and transcribed wrong which lead to the advent of the story of Noah’s ark

King Philip II of Spain was referred to as the “bureaucrat king” because he loved nothing more than to sit in a plain room with documents which he needed to read and sign. Philip II didn’t like human contact or interaction and made his court submit their requests to him via a written document even if they were in the next room. Philip II spoke very quietly and stared at those who spoke to him, often cited as making others feel uncomfortable. Philip II cared only of his empire and his religion of Catholicism and had no interest in building or maintaining relationships with others

Reincarnation In Western Religion

Reincarnation does not only show up in eastern religions like Buddhism and Hinduism, it also is apparent in ancient religion. The ancient Greeks believed in a process like this with Plato writing of the soul entering a new body after the body it was previously in had perished. In the Bible, Jesus Christ asks a person who they think he is and the person responds “some say you’re John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and some say you’re Jeremiah” which is a subtle and indirect nod towards reincarnation. This statement hints at the fact that Christ came back as one of those people which is why he acted the way he did. Furthering this theory, Christ has stated “when two or more are gathered in my name, I am there”
