Game from the Script: Yoruba Religion


Disclaimer: I do not practise Yoruba religion but know some who do. Do add your inputs and feedbacks.

Before Judaism, Christianity, Isalmism or Mohammadism and even Hinduism Yoruba religion existed. Hinduism and Taoism were also reigning before other religion but Yoruba religion is much older. All other religion were taken, altered, edited, from such tablets like The Atra Hasis, The Enuma Elish, The Ishtar to the underworld, Tablets of Nergal and Arishkegal or the Epic of Gilgamesh, Tablets of Adapa, Tablets of Etana, The Akkadian Tablets and many more.

Tablets of Etana

The focus of Yoruba religion is based on a leader called Zerubbabel who was also known as Sheshbazzar and Haggai, who was leader of the lost tribe. The lost tribe was named the tribe of Shabazz. Sheshbazzer led his crew on a pathless journey around Ganawa (another name for Africa) to get home. The journey was to a place called Oyo. The people there referred to his followers as Yoruba. The people there called Sheshbazzar Obata’alah and called his priesthood Orisha. Sheshbazzar was the first pope. Each of his followers in regards to the priesthood were known as Oba or papal. They later settled and started calling the place Nigeria.

are used.
