Religion
    Born in Iraq
    Ancient monotheistic, religious/ethnic group centered around the Nineveh province of Iraq
    Its followers believe in one god who has put seven angels, led by a supreme angel, Melek Taus, the Peacock Angel in charge of the Earth
    Believed to be descendants of ancient Kurds who maintained their ancient Mesopotamian mystery religion which has since been influenced by Islam, Mithraism and Sufi mysticism
    World population is estimated as being anywhere between 70,000 - 500,000
    Although the term Yazidi is used to refer to both the people and their religion; the term more properly refers to the people and the term Shafaddin to the religion.
    The origins of the people and their religion are lost to antiquity. Theories range from 4750 BC to the 12th Century AD. Most scholars believe it was started in the 1100's by Sheik Adi ibn Musafir.
    They believe that Adam and Eve masturbated into separate jars and that they are descended from Adam's sperm alone and all other people are descended from Adam and Eve. For the record, Eve's fluids turned into bugs.
    Their two holy books; the Book of Revelation (no relation to the Biblical book) and the Black Book have been exposed as frauds/forgeries.
    They believe in reincarnation.
    They only marry within the Yazidi community.
    Like Muslims, they stop to pray five times a day although obviously for different prayers.
    They have only one temple for the entire religion.
    They have been savagely persecuted by Muslims through the centuries and especially by ISIS and Al-Queda in recent years.
    They have generally been friendly to Christians, Jews, and the United States.
    They have cool festivals through the year, with one in particular that lasts seven days.
    They forbid spitting, eating foods that cause gas, and insulting the clergy of other religions.
    Because they don't accept converts, they don't bug you to join their religion.
    They blame mankind for all the evil in the world instead of passing it off on Satan.
    They are frequently mistaken for Muslims.
