Teonanacatl and the raft of snakes??
    #4552827 - 08/18/05 08:37 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I was tripping one day thinkin about the name. Then I suddenly got the idea of FF8's guardian force Quetzalcoatl. I remember in school we read something on the Toltec natives. A story about some god who crossed some river on a raft of snakes. I dont remember much so I Yahooed the 2 names Quetzalcoatl, and Teonanacatl. And here is the trippy result.
"Tlaloc the provident rain god which dates right back to the La Venta culture is aptly charged with creating mushrooms in a bolt of lightning the bringer of rain and also thefertilization of the earthmother bythe sky father. In a second myth, Quetzalcoatl, the fair-haired man-god, with eyes the colour of jade, ran through Mexico, the sacred mushrooms, teonanacatl , are supposed to have sprung from the blood of his cuts. He is also charged with creating the human race from bones taken in haste by Quetzalcoatl from the underworld and ground by the earth goddess Cichuacoatl, the Snake Woman, with blood from his penis. Quetzalcoatl or Serpent of Precious Feathers (also known as Kukulcan, Gucumatz and Votan) appears similarly in practically in all of the cultures of the precolumbian Mexico from the classical "theocratic" era of Teotihuacan through the Toltec transition to the later "militaristic" cultures. The form of the sky serpent is also common to the La Venta culture (1250 BC to 600 BC) and the Mayas."

like Thor creating them or them springing from the foam from sleipnir as he ran from the giants, but I think those were debunked brutally.
