- Apr 30, 2006Another religion from Iraq. The Yezidis believe that God created a
great pearl at the begining of time and placed it on the back of a huge
bird, after this he created Lucifer(Melek Taus) and his hordes of
angels. He(God) then retreated from the universe and left creation to
Lucifer who broke open the pearl and made everything. Lucifer is
regarded as fallen but capable of redemption and is depicted as a
peacock because of his pride and association with the sun. As a sun-
god, Lucifer represents good and evil, fire as light and fire as burn.
Supposbly all humans have a piece of Lucifer in their own souls, and
those who follow him will be rewarded in the world to come.
