  • Interesting story/possible Generative Act.

    This is my favorite story of the loa. A Haitian priest told it to an American scholar who told it to me in 2008.

    When Jesus died and was laid in the tomb, two Haitian soldiers stood outside to guard the entrance. When God descended from Heaven to speak the magic words that brought Jesus back from the dead, the two soldiers eavesdropped and heard those words. They remembered them and passed them down from generation to generation until they reached this aforementioned priest. That is how he knows the procedure to bring a zombie back from the grave.
    Alternative version of Tammuz?

    Sure, that's pretty cool. Even Nepri, maybe, though it lacks the "dismember the body" aspect.

      Well, Christ still had the wounds in his hands and side, so while not straight-up dismemberment there was a visible injury component.
