World Mythology: Who were the snake Gods?
The Serpent is the most common religious deity to be found across all the ancient civilisations. It has been worshipped by the Aztecs, Incas, and Hindus and has, of course, appeared in Christian text where Eve sleeps with the snake. Indeed, according to Chinese legend the earliest emperors were in fact related to serpents and dragons. The Zulus of southern Africa speak of the Chita Uri, a half man, half-snake God. In ancient Persia we hear tales of the Gin, another half man, half snakelike creature who was able to metamorphose between the two at will. The Hindus named their snake God the Nagas. The Nagas also features heavily in Cambodian, Isaan and Laotian mythology. The Aztecs called their snake-God Quetzalcoatl, or the feathered serpent. The ancient Greeks of course had their Medusa along with many other vicious Gorgons. In almost every ancient civilisation, the serpent God appears. These snakelike Gods, according to the legend, at some point in our distant history, interbred with the daughters of man to create a hybrid reptilian race. These creatures, banished from the heavens, then required human blood in order to survive. Thus began the roots of contemporary satanic belief and sacrificial blood rituals. It perhaps also explains the Aztec’s insatiable lust for human blood sacrifice. According to Aztec mythology, at the point of terrorization, a special chemical was released into the victim’s bloodstream. The drinking of this blood would then lead to eternal life. Reptilian conspiracy theorists believe these hybrid people have survived to the present day, occupying the highest positions in society.
