Ahriman [Jun. 30th, 2007|02:40 pm]
Let The Galaxy BURN!


I was reading a book and found out that Ahriman is the name of the evil deity from the Zoroastrianism religion and the good deity's name is Mazda (scary, isn't it? :) ).

Yep, in Zoroastrianism Ahriman (also known as Angra Mainyu) is the Bad Dude whilst Ahura Mazda (also known as Hormizd) is the Good Dude.

There are quite a lot of mythological references in 40k. Don't forget than Horus is an Egyptian god. Or that Abaddon is a demon (mentioned in Revelations).
