The upper case letter Z is a picture of
Set or the Set scepter.
Despite all of this, Set and Heru often appear to be coequals in Egyptian art and symbolism. In some versions of the Judgment Scene, Assur is pictured holding only his crook and flail. In other versions he is seen holding the Set scepter along with his crook and flail. That suggests that Assur is an ancestor of Set and not his "brother" as some genealogies have it. In some cases, Set appears to be a brother of Heru. In other cases he seems to be the "dark side" of Heru. Many Egyptian gods are depicted holding a Set scepter in their hands. Possibly the Set scepters held in the hands of gods represent their power over evil forces within themselves or in the outer world. All in all, Set seems to have had a checkered career in Egyptian religion.
Set, the unnamable animal with his forked tail, his scepter, and his reputation for evil is apparently the prototype for our conventional concept of Satan. According to the Biblical concept of the Devil, Satan was a "fallen angel." Set seems to have suffered the same fate in Egyptian religion. He began as one of the good gods and ended up as the devil. Before the dawn of dynastic Egypt, Set was a member of a venerated company of gods. By the end of the Twenty-sixth Dynasty, he was the personification of evil. Apparently Set lost his position in heaven through his involvement in the political power struggles of people on earth.
hell. The sound of letter z is derived from the buzz of the rattlesnake's tail.
zotz myth may have sprung from actual large, blood-drinking bats of the Mexico, Guatemala, and Brazil areas. Evidence is in the form of fossils of Desmodus draculae, the giant vampire bat. There have also been skeletons of draculae found which were sub-fossil, of very recent age. These sub-fossils suggest that the species were still common when the Mayans civilization existed, and may still be in existence today, though it is doubtful. Alternately, Zotz may have originated from the Spectral bat , a large carnivorous bat native to Central and South America.
They are ZO not because they live in the highlands or the hills, but all ZO and called themselves ZO because they are the descendants of the great ancestor, “ZO”. This people traditionally named their sons and daughters, villages, places imbibing the great great progenitor “ZO”. Names such as Zogam, Zozaam, Zotui etc. stand testimonial to the affiliation that these people has had to their great ancestor Pu ZO from time immemorial.
Traditionally viz- animism was considered to be the most widely practiced religion among Zo people, until the Swedish-American Baptist missionaries forced Christianity around 1899. They were forced into submission, and this caused the Zo people much dismay, thus dividing them into 3 countries, and abandoning their customs and beliefs held for countless generations.
Their religious belief is known as animism, i.e.belief in spiritual beings, and.ghosts, manes, demons, deities--inhabit almost everything The dead ancestors, passing intodeities, go on protecting the tribes as the dead chiefs watch over the tribe. In animism funeral rites and customs--feasts of the dead, the human sacrifices, and head shrinking were common practices.
The Zo shamans held their beliefs sacred, and swore revenge upon their Christian enemies. Their traditions shattered, to this day, they remain vindictive and divided.....as witnessed in this link:
(n.) The religious system of Zoroaster, the legislator and prophet of the ancient Persians, which was the national faith of Persia; mazdeism. The system presupposes a good spirit (Ormuzd) and an opposing evil spirit (Ahriman). Cf. Fire worship, under Fire, and Parsee.Some believe the demon Ahriman found a way to manifest its "face" in this catastrophe. That this is a touched up artificially produced picture made by someone in the media either as a very sick joke, or else as an attempt to influence the subconscious of religiously inclined gullible people who would, as a result of seeing this image, then feel more inclined to support a "crusade against evil." Whatever the answer, it certainly bears a striking resemblance to Rudolf Steiner's sculptures of Ahriman's head. Seen here:
