The Great Floods and Judeo-Christian Storm Worship
The Pangool, they are the spirits of our departed ancestors. Any mouth [person] who does not lie, does not harm, does not fornicate, does not take the property of others, that one, all he asks Roog will see his wishes granted by Roog. Roog Seen has no parent or friend. The individual does not evoke the name of God but him, he gives what he wants.

"The Serer are a settled, agricultural people who grow millet, rice, and a wide variety of other crops, including tree crops. Cattle, sheep, and goats are tended, and trade, conducted in regular markets, is well-developed. Like the Wolof, the Serer are noted for playing the sabar, a traditional drum usually played in ensemble for virtually every occasion." -https://www.britannica.com/topic/Serer
"Genetic tests carried out by British scientists have revealed that many of the Lemba tribesmen in southern Africa have Jewish origins, according to a report by the BBC. The Lemba, a tribe of 70,000 to 80,000 members who live in central Zimbabwe and northern South Africa, have customs which are similar to Jewish ones: Lemba refrain from eating pork or other foods forbidden by the Torah, or forbidden combinations of permitted foods, wear yarmulke-like skull caps, conduct ritual animal slaughter, have a holy day once a week, and even put a Star of David on their gravestones. According to their oral tradition, the Lemba are descended from seven Jewish men who left Israel 2,500 years ago and married African women, according to the BBC. The Lemba prefer their children to marry other Lembas, and marriage to non-Lembas is being discouraged.
Their sacred prayer language is a mixture of Hebrew and Arabic. Their religious artifact is a replica of the Biblical Ark of the Covenant known as the ‘ngoma lungundu’, meaning "the drum that thunders.” The object went on display recently at a museum in Harare, Zimbabwe, and has instilled pride in many of the Lemba. They say the ark was built almost 700 years ago from the remains of the original ark, which according to the Bible was used to store the Ten Commandments. For decades, the ancient vessel was thought to be lost until it was discovered in a storeroom in Harare recently.
Members of the priestly clan of the Lemba, the Buba – which is one of 12 clans – have a genetic element also found among the Jewish priestly line, known as Kohanim. "This was amazing," Professor Tudor Parfitt from the University of London told the BBC. "It looks as if the Jewish priesthood continued in the West by people called Cohen, and in same way it was continued by the priestly clan of the Lemba.”" -https://www.worldjewishcongress.org/en/news/lemba-tribe-in-southern-africa-has-jewish-roots-genetic-tests-reveal
When people talk about "The Flood" they usually bring up Noah, and usually if there is an argument, or even debate, it is between someone who thinks Noah's family was the only to survive and a person who believes Noah never existed. But why does no one ever take the Position that "The Flood" could have been a series of massive floods on a scale that no one had seen before (not 1 flood) at the end of the Ice age?
"(Νάννακος/Nánnakos, according to Steph. Byz. Ἀννακός/Annakós). Mythological king of Phrygia who supposedly lived to be over 300 years old. He predicted the flood of Deucalion and prayed with his people to be spared. Numerous proverbs relating to his great age and his tearful pleading are associated with him (Zenob. 6,10; Macarius Chrysocephalus 2,23; 8,4; Apostolius 15,100; cf. already Herondas 3,10)." -https://referenceworks.brillonline.com/entries/brill-s-new-pauly/nannacus-e816660
"Deucalion, in Greek legend, the Greek equivalent of Noah, the son of Prometheus (the creator of humankind), king of Phthia in Thessaly, and husband of Pyrrha; he was also the father of Hellen, the mythical ancestor of the Hellenic race.
When Zeus, the king of the gods, resolved to destroy all humanity by a flood, Deucalion constructed an ark in which, according to one version, he and his wife rode out the flood and landed on Mount Parnassus. According to a story found first in the Roman poet Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Book I, upon offering a sacrifice and inquiring how to renew the human race, they were ordered to cast behind them the bones of their mother. The couple correctly interpreted this to mean they should throw behind them the stones of the hillside (“mother earth”), and they did so. Those stones thrown by Deucalion became men, while those thrown by Pyrrha became women. In early Greek versions Hermes told the couple directly to cast stones behind them." -https://www.britannica.com/topic/Metamorphoses-poem-by-Ovid
The idea of the "Vengeful God" and the "Jealous God" comes from Mountain and Lightning Worship. Christianity and Judaism started of as Mountain and Lightning Worship. Moses went up to Mount Sianai, where he found a "Fire God" who spoke to him. Then God burned the top of the mountain, some Christians claim to know where this mountain is, and there is a mountain in the Middle East with a Burn on top, and they say that God sat there.
19 On the first day of the third month after the Israelites left Egypt—on that very day—they came to the Desert of Sinai. 2 After they set out from Rephidim, they entered the Desert of Sinai, and Israel camped there in the desert in front of the mountain.
3 Then Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain and said, “This is what you are to say to the descendants of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel: 4 ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. 5 Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, 6 you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites.”
7 So Moses went back and summoned the elders of the people and set before them all the words the Lord had commanded him to speak. 8 The people all responded together, “We will do everything the Lord has said.” So Moses brought their answer back to the Lord.
9 The Lord said to Moses, “I am going to come to you in a dense cloud, so that the people will hear me speaking with you and will always put their trust in you.” Then Moses told the Lord what the people had said.
10 And the Lord said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today and tomorrow. Have them wash their clothes 11 and be ready by the third day, because on that day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people. 12 Put limits for the people around the mountain and tell them, ‘Be careful that you do not approach the mountain or touch the foot of it. Whoever touches the mountain is to be put to death. 13 They are to be stoned or shot with arrows; not a hand is to be laid on them. No person or animal shall be permitted to live.’ Only when the ram’s horn sounds a long blast may they approach the mountain.”
14 After Moses had gone down the mountain to the people, he consecrated them, and they washed their clothes. 15 Then he said to the people, “Prepare yourselves for the third day. Abstain from sexual relations.”
16 On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled. 17 Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. 18 Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain[b] trembled violently. 19 As the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him.
20 The Lord descended to the top of Mount Sinai and called Moses to the top of the mountain. So Moses went up 21 and the Lord said to him, “Go down and warn the people so they do not force their way through to see the Lord and many of them perish. 22 Even the priests, who approach the Lord, must consecrate themselves, or the Lord will break out against them.”
”Members of an African tribe are displaying a sacred object they believe to be the Ark of the Covenant in a Harare museum.
The item is a ngoma, a sacred drum made of wood. According to oral tradition, a ngoma was carried from Israel by the Lemba, a South African tribe who believe they are descendants of Jews from the Middle East. After it burst into flame and was destroyed, another ngoma - the one currently on display - was constructed from the ruins.” -https://www.thejc.com/news/world/african-jewish-tribe-displays-its-lost-ark-1.15164
If you look up Jacawitz, you will find a Native American Mountain God. One who accepts Sacrifice, just like the Abrahamic God. The God of Abraham said "The wages of Sin is death" so if you sin, Christians say you are supposed to die. But Jesus died for you. This is Mountain God mentality.
Jacawitz is part of a Holy Trinity of Gods, also known as a Triad. Similar to Christianity, ex: Jesus, God and the Holy Ghost. The Native Americans in North America also had a version of this mountain God, they called them Thunder Birds and they claimed that they lived on Mountains. A specific example of this is Pamola.
"Jacawitz (/χäkäˈwits/) (also spelt Jakawitz, Jakawits, Qʼaqʼawits and Hacavitz) was a mountain god of the Postclassic Kʼicheʼ Maya of highland Guatemala. He was the patron of the Ajaw Kʼicheʼ lineage and was a companion of the sun god Tohil. It is likely that he received human sacrifice. The word jacawitz means "mountain" in the lowland Maya language, and the word qʼaqʼawitz of the highland Maya means "fire mountain", which suggests that Jacawitz was mainly a fire deity, much like Tohil. In the Mam language, the similar word xqʼaqwitz means "yellow wasp" and the wasp was an important symbol of the deity and its associated lineage. In the Cholan languages, jacawitz means "first mountain", linking the god with the first mountain of creation." -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacawitz
The Mountain Gods and the Lightning/Thunder Gods were very Similar. And you can imagine that when there were no walls, and no electricity, lightning must have seemed a lot more like The Voice of God.
Hurricanes are named after the South American God Huracan. He is known for taking part in Creation, and the Global Flood in Native American myth. Supposedly he created Giants and they displeased him, so he made a flood, then created man. He is represented as a Serpent, or a 1 legged man, because he is the God of Lightning.
"Huracan was one of the major gods in the Mayan pantheon. He was identified as the god who caused natural catastrophes by invoking natural elements such as the wind, fire and earth.
Huracan is considered one of the major gods who were involved in the creation of the world and mankind, according to the Mayan mythology. He played an active role during the different phases in which mankind on Earth was created and destroyed. In Mayan mythology, he is identified as the god with one leg.
Huracan was among the earliest and most ancient Mayan gods who were involved in the several cycles of creation. In one of the cycles, Mayan mythology says that a Great Flood was sent to Earth which ravaged all land and eliminated the second generation of Gods. Huracan caused this Great Flood and afterwards, when the second generation had perished, he invoked the Earth to rise. According to mythological sources, he kept invoking the Earth until it rose out of the seas and land was again visible on Earth.
Mayan mythology states that when the second generation of mankind was created, it eventually corrupted into a kind of manikins. These manikins angered the Mayan gods and as a result, it was decided that they should be destroyed. According to the mythology, Huracan helped achieved this end. He gave dogs and turkeys, and pans and mortars and stones the ability to speak. The dogs and turkeys demanded to avenge the dogs and turkeys slain and eaten by the manikins.
The pans and mortars decried their mistreatment at the hands of the manikins. The stones flung out of the fireplaces and hit the manikins. In this way, different objects became animated and helped destroy the manikins. This phase of destruction is attributed to Huracan.
He walked through the Earth until he found corn and this corn was turned to dough. Out of this dough, four men were created. They were named Jaguar Night, Jaguar Quitze, Dark Jaguar and Not Right Now. These humans were created with super-human abilities, so that they could see through the oceans, fly in the air and look across mountains with ease. But then Huracan sought to limit their vision and clouded it so that they could no longer see very far." -https://mayansandtikal.com/mayan-gods/huracan/
The Aztecs had a similar Lightning God named Tlaloc. He was seen as the giver of life, and was feared for his ability to send storms and hail. This was the main religion in Mexico before the Christians came, and most of the Christian worshiping places are actually places that the people used to worship Tlaloc (Mountains, etc). So the Natives basically just had to change the name name of God, then still be scared he might send a storm and stuff. It was really no different except the Christians were telling everyone not to let women on top in bed. Which is a really weird thing to make everyone do.
"Tlaloc, (Nahuatl: “He Who Makes Things Sprout”) Aztec rain god. Representations of a rain god wearing a peculiar mask, with large round eyes and long fangs, date at least to the Teotihuacán culture of the highlands (3rd to 8th century ad). His characteristic features were strikingly similar to those of the Maya rain god Chac of the same period.
During Aztec times (14th to 16th century), Tlaloc’s cult was apparently considered extremely important and had spread throughout Mexico. In the divinatory calendars, Tlaloc was the eighth ruler of the days and the ninth lord of the nights.
Five months of the 18-month ritual year were dedicated to Tlaloc and to his fellow deities, the Tlaloque, who were believed to dwell on the mountaintops. Children were sacrificed to Tlaloc on the first month, Atlcaualo, and on the third, Tozoztontli. During the sixth month, Etzalqualiztli, the rain priests ceremonially bathed in the lake; they imitated the cries of waterfowls and used magic “fog rattles” (ayauhchicauaztli) in order to obtain rain. The 13th month, Tepeilhuitl, was dedicated to the mountain Tlaloque; small idols made of amaranth paste were ritually killed and eaten. A similar rite was held on the 16th month, Atemoztli." -https://www.britannica.com/topic/Tlaloc
Chaac was the Mayan Lightning and Storm God. He is an example of an American culture who used the Axe along with the Worship of a Thunder God. You have heard of this before in Europe as "Thor". There are a lot of religions around the world that say Lightning is actually a God who goes up to the sky to strike the clouds and bring rain. Usually lightning is also associated with snakes.
"Chaac (spelled variously Chac, Chaak, or Chaakh; and referred to in scholarly texts as God B) is the name of the rain god in the Maya religion. As with many Mesoamerican cultures that based their living on rain-dependent agriculture, the ancient Maya felt a particular devotion for the deities controlling rain. Rain gods or rain-related deities were worshiped beginning in very ancient times and were known under many names among different Mesoamerican people.
For the ancient Maya, the rain god had a particularly strong relationship with rulers, because—at least for the earlier periods of Maya history—rulers were considered rainmakers, and in later periods, were thought able to communicate and intercede with the gods. The alter-egos of Maya shamans and rulers roles often overlapped, especially in the Preclassic period. The pre-classic shaman-rulers were said to be able to reach the inaccessible places where the rain gods dwelled, and intercede with them for the people.
These deities were believed to live on the tops of mountains and in high forests which were often hidden by clouds. These were the places where, in the rainy seasons, the clouds were hit by Chaac and his helpers and the rains were announced by thunder and lightning.
According to Maya cosmology, Chaac was also linked to the four cardinal directions. Each world direction was connected with one aspect of Chaac and a specific color:
Chaak Xib Chaac, was the Red Chaac of the East
Sak Xib Chaac, the White Chaac of the North
Ex Xib Chaac, the Black Chaac of the West, and
Kan Xib Chaac, the Yellow Chaac of the South
Collectively, these were called the Chaacs or Chaacob or Chaacs (plural for Chaac) and they were worshiped as deities themselves in many parts of the Maya area, especially in Yucatán.
In a "burner" ritual reported in the Dresden and Madrid codexes and said to be conducted to ensure copious rains, the four Chaacs had different roles: one takes the fire, one begins the fire, one gives scope to the fire, and one puts out the fire. When the fire was lit, hearts of sacrificial animals were cast into it and the four Chaac priests poured jugs of water to put out the flames. This Chaac ritual was performed twice each year, once in the dry season, once in the wet." -https://www.thoughtco.com/chaac-ancient-maya-god-of-rain-lightning-and-storms-171593
I am not saying that Christianity was a copy of something else, I am saying that a lot of Culture thought that Lightning was the Voice of God. Or that God lived on Mountains.
"Seereer religion is polytheistic. There are multiple deities - for example : Tiurakh (god of wealth), Takhar (god of justice or vengeance), Kumba Njaay (proper, variation : Adna Kumba Njaay, earth goddess), etc. These are however demi-gods. Below are the names the various Seereer groups use to refer to the supreme god and creator:
Roog (variations : Roog Seen, Rog or Rooh following its pronunciation), meaning "sky" or "god of the heavens" in Seereer-Siin, used by the Seex people. Roog is synonymous to Koox (see below).
Koox (variations : Koox Seen or Kooh following its pronunciation), meaning "god of rain and the heavens" in Saafi, used by the Cangin, in particular the Saafi people.
Kokh Kox (derived from Koox), used by the Noon people.[Kopé Tiatie Cac (variation : Koh), meaning "god grandfather" in Ndut, used by the Ndut people.
All these groups are ethnically Seereer and many of them adhere to the tenets of Seereer religion, but use their own language to refer to the supreme being. Roog is the creator of the universe and everything in it. Among some Seereers, Roog is sometimes referred to as "the Master of the World." He is the source of life and everything returns back to him. He is "the point of departure and conclusion, the origin and the end".
In Seereer religion, there is no House of Roog. The supreme deity is "everywhere and nowhere." Roog has no body or remains and is not represented in an art form. Although the Seereer people have several religious symbols or ideographs, there is no artistic representation of Roog. Among the Saafi people, there is an ideograph for Koox, however this ideograph merely focuses on the spiritual rather than Koox's physical form.
The Seereers pray to Roog through interceders (the pangool) because Roog is considered too high, but do not offer a direct animal sacrifice to Roog. To show their reverence to the supreme being, the Seereers use words such as Roog Dangandeer Seen ("Roog the Omnipresent" or "the Omnipresent God"), Roog o Caaci’in Seen (Roog our ancestor), etc. This is how the Seereers evoke the name of the divine along with prayers." -https://www.seereer.org/god-in-serer-religion
You may be thinking "If the Tree of Life comes from Egypt, did the Serpent also show up in Egyptian Myth" the answer is yes, and not only did the Serpent appear in Egyptian mythology, but it was a storm God. He is meant to represent Darkness and Chaos, he was also depicted as a Dragon.
Apep was the direct opponent of Ma'at, who is the Goddess of Light, Truth, Balance and Justice. She is represented by the Scale (for weighing). Ma'at can be found today in the word "Math" and the = sign is pretty much her reincarnation in our culture. Both sides of the equation must be balanced. The direct enemy of the God of Light and Balance is the Lightning/Storm/Mountain God. He asks for death by sin, while Ma'at simply asks for moral repayment for evil deeds.
Apep was always depicted as some kind of Serpent, either a Dragon or Snake or some other scaled creature.
"Apep (Aapep, Apepi or Apophis) was the ancient Egyptian spirit of evil, darkness and destruction. As the arch enemy of the sun god, Ra, he was a malevolent force who could never be entirely be vanquished. Every night as the sun travelled though the underworld (or across the sky) his roar would fill the air and he would launch his attack.
Although he was believed to have existed since primeaval times, Apep is not mentioned by name until the Middle Kingdom. It is possible that he was born out of the chaos and uncertainty brought about by the end of the Old Kingdom. However, some experts have questioned whether the First Intermediate period was actually a dark age, and it is also possible that depictions of large serpents on Predynastic pottery may relate to him. There a number of serpent gods or demons who appear in early texts (such as the Pyramid Texts) as representatives of evil or chaos. However, the mythology surrounding him largely developed during the New Kingdom in funerary texts such as the Duat (or Amduat). During the Roman Period, he was sometimes referred to as “he who was spat out” and considered to have been born of the saliva of the goddess Neith.
According to one myth, Apep would hypnotise the sun god and all of his followers, except Set who would would repel the serpent by piercing his side with a great spear. In some texts, Apep would trap the boat of Ra in his massive coils (referred to as sandbanks) or cause the waters of the underworld to flood to overwhelm him. In other texts Apep was equated with Set (who was after all a god of chaos) and an army of major and minor gods and goddesses (including Isis, Neith, Serqet (Selket), Geb, Aker and the followers of Horus and other unnamed gods in the form of monkeys) would defend him. The dead themselves (sometimes in the form of the god Shu) could also fight Apep to help maintain Ma´at (order). Apep would swallow the sun god, but they would cut a hole in the belly of the snake to allow the sun god to escape. If they failed, the world would be plunged into darkness." -https://ancientegyptonline.co.uk/apep/
Since Ra was the Sun, in the sky, he was also closely associated with light, but Ra is the force behind the light he is not the light itself. So in modern terms, Ra is something like "Atomic Energy" or even "Kinetic Energy". Apep was also an Enemy of Ra, and the Ancient Egyptian said that every day when the Sun (Ra) when down for the night, he was actually going in to the underworld and doing battle with Apep. So every morning when the Sun came up, the Egyptians greeted it as if it had won a battle to get there.
Early on in the Mythology (Egypt was around for about 10,000 years, so things changed sometimes) Ra and Set were on the same team, so the Storm God and the Sun God were actually together fighting the Chaos and the Darkness, but later Set became intertwined with Apep in the story, and the Storm God became equivalent to the Chaos and Darkness.
Then according to the Bible, Moses went on top of a Mountain and started talking to this Storm God.
"Labrys is asymmetric double-headed ritual axe that is one of the holiest Cretan religious symbols. It is also known as Labyris, Sagarus, and Halbryce. The term ‘Labrys’ traces its roots to the Latin word ‘labus’, which means ‘lips’. So, the symbol is said to denote a part of the female genitalia, labia that is the entrance of womb. Its symbolism is also linked directly with the Labyrinth, which originally denotes the Palace of Knossos in the city of Crete. Alternately, Labrys is believed to have been derived from the Lydian word for axe.
The closest association of the Labrys is with the ancient Minoan civilization where it was used as a symbol of the Mother Goddess and was representative of authority. It was also seen as symbolic of a butterfly, signifying transformation and rebirth. This double axe was depicted mostly in the hands of women and came to be connected with the male gods long after the decline of Minoan civilization. In Greek mythology, the Labrys (also called Pelekys) appears as an ancient symbol linked with the Thunder God, Zeus who used the axe to invoke storms." -https://www.ancient-symbols.com/symbols-directory/labrys.html
"At one time, the religion of Christianity had a different cross as their symbol, than the one used today and over the last 1500-1800 years. The original true cross that the Fathers of the Church had considered a symbol of our Saviour’s cross was the letter Tau, who St. Jerome had declared that the ancient Hebrews before Esdias formed the Tau like a cross, and who Saint Bede had said was “the sign of salvation and of the cross.” The Tau is the 19th letter of the Greek alphabet which is modeled after the Phoenicians who had represented the Tau with the Phoenician letter taw ‘X.’
The same Origen, and Jerom, writing on Ezekiel ix. where it is said, that the angel stamped a Tau on the forehead of those who were to be preserved out of the hands of the destroying angel, observe that in the time of Ezekiel, and before the captivity of Babylon, the Tau of the Hebrews had the shape of a cross [x]; and this appears from the Samaritan medals, and from the ancient Samaritan alphabet.
In the Old Testament, this was represented as the serpent on the Tau, or cross.
The cross we see today is different and is based on the Greek [theta which is the eighth letter of the Greek alphabet. If you rearrange “theta” and take a letter t out and add the letter d, you can spell death. This makes sense since the English language was derived from the Greeks.
The theta represents the value of 9
The Greek theta also represents the Son of Man hanging on the cross and is considered the symbol of death. Hence, Jesus was crucified at age 33 on April 3, 33 AD.
It is the double-headed axe of the goddess which can be found on seals and art from Crete. Please notice the image of the war goddess below with her axes and priesthood of the Curetes, who of which she placed in charge after she hid the infant Zeus in a cave on Mount Ida on the same island of Crete. The Curetes would later become the Roman Curia.
This image below is from Crete and is of a religious depiction of the ceremony involved with the war goddess who is also known as the snake or serpent goddess, in what looks like one of the first uses of the goddess and cross in the same ceremony. Hence, The power of the serpent of Egypt was broken on the cross – Justin Martyr.
In Crete, the symbol of the double-axe always accompanies goddesses, and it seems that it was the symbol of the beginning (arche) of the creation. The word labyrinth, which the Greeks used for the palace of Knossos is derived from “labrys”. Plutarch relates the word labrys with a Lydian word for axe: (Λυδοὶ γάρ ‘λάβρυν’ τὸν πέλεκυν ὀνομάζουσι). Labrys (λάβρυς in Greek, lábrys) is the term for a symmetric doubleheaded axe originally from Crete in Greece, one of the oldest symbols of Greek civilization; to the Romans, it was known as a bipennis. It seems that the goddess of the double-axe presided over the Minoan palaces, and especially over the palace of Knossos. A Linear B inscription on tablet Gg702 found in Knossos, was interpreted “da-pu-ri-to-jo po-ti-ni-ja= labynthoio potnoiai” ( to the Mistress of the labyrinth), and she was undoubtedly the goddess of the palace." -https://gnosticwarrior.com/symbolic-origins-of-the-cross.html
"A triple deity (sometimes referred to as threefold, tripled, triplicate, tripartite, triune or triadic) is a deity associated with the number three. Such deities are common throughout world mythology; the number three has a long history of mythical associations. C. G. Jung considered the arrangement of deities into triplets an archetype in the history of religion.
The deities and legendary creatures of this nature typically fit into one of the following general categories:
triadic ("forming a group of three"): a triad, three entities inter-related in some way (life, death, rebirth, for example, or triplet children of a deity) and always or usually associated with one another or appearing together;
triune ("three-in-one, one-in-three"): a being with three aspects or manifestations;
tripartite ("of triple parts"): a being with three body parts where there would normally be one (three heads, three pairs of arms, and so on); or
triplicate-associated ("relating to three corresponding instances"): a being in association with a trio of things of the same nature which are symbolic or through which power is wielded (three magic birds, etc.)" -https://enacademic.com/dic.nsf/enwiki/11533662
Some Mormons believe Viracocha is the second coming of Jesus, and they have various evidences of Semitic language and culture, including Punic which is a forerunner of all Western culture and language, including Semitic.
"It was believed that human beings were actually Viracocha's second attempt at living creatures as he first created a race of giants from stone in the age of darkness. However, these giants proved unruly and it became necessary for Viracocha to punish them by sending a great flood. In the legend all these giants except two then returned to their original stone form and several could still be seen in much later times standing imposingly at sites such as Tiahuanaco (also known as Tiwanaku) and Pukará.
Then Viracocha created men and women but this time he used clay. He also gave them such gifts as clothes, language, agriculture and the arts and then created all animals. Even more useful was Viracocha's decision to create the sun, moon and stars and so bring light to the world. These heavenly bodies were created from islands in Lake Titicaca. Finished, and no doubt highly satisfied with his labours, Viracocha then set off to spread his civilizing knowledge around the world and for this he dressed as a beggar and assumed such names as Con Ticci Viracocha (also spelt Kon-Tiki), Atun-Viracocha and Contiti Viracocha Pachayachachic. He was assissted on his travels by two sons or brothers called Imaymana Viracocha and Tocapo Viracocha. The god was not always well received despite the knowledge he imparted, sometimes even suffering stones thrown at him. Ending up at Manta (in Ecuador), Viracocha then walked across the waters of the Pacific (in some versions he sails a raft) heading into the west but promising to return one day to the Inca and the site of his greatest works." -https://www.ancient.eu/Viracocha/
Trefoil (from Latin trifolium, "three-leaved plant") is a graphic form composed of the outline of three overlapping rings used in architecture and Christian symbolism. The term is also applied to other symbols of three-fold shape.
