SAOSHYANT

Middle-Eastern Renewal God

Also known as SAOHYANT

The Zoroastrian Messiah and God of Renewal

At the end of time there will be quite a lot of purging, but well worth it. SAOSHYANT the Savior will be born of a virgin from the lineage of Zoroaster and put into motion AHURA-MAZDA’s scorched earth policy.

The wicked followers of AHRIMAN will perish in a big bonfire with much screaming and wailing. But for the just and good, Judgment Day will be like a big party in a hot tub filled with warm milk.

Interestingly, SAOSHYANT’s apocalyptic role has much in common with the Second Coming of JESUS. Except that SAOSHYANT had the idea first.
