Station / Estación # 63: Ermita

En Zeitgeist: The Movie se hace la afirmación que el cristianismo es una parodia de la adoración del sol.

Cerca de Ermita, se juntan los dos de nuevo.  Publicidad por la cerveza Sol está justo arriba del cartel de ‘Abarrotes Jesus’.

Aparentemente Jesús multiplicó los panes y los peces para alimentar a miles de personas asi que puede ser un buen lugar para hacer tus compras si tienes una familia grande y hambrienta para alimentar con un presupuesto limitado.

Hablando de la religión, la gente Maya deifica la maiz.  Si quieres hacer lo mismo podrias arodillarte al frente del Gran Elote de Ermita para rezar.

Hay también arte callejero para conmemorar el centenario de la revolución y el bicentenario de la independencia.

In Zeitgeist: The Movie the claim is made that Christianity is a parody of worship of the sun.

Not far from Ermita, the two are brought together again.  Advertising for Sol beer sits above the sign of the ‘Jesus’ grocery store.

Jesus apparently fed thousands with a few loaves and fish so I guess it might be a good place to shop if you have a hungry brood to feed on a budget.

Furthermore, on the subject of religion, the Mayan people deify maize.  Should you wish to follow suit you could kneel down and pray before the big corn of Ermita.

Street art to commemorate the centenary of the revolution and bicentenary of independence too.

  3. Thanks for the comment Carla. Well, no, I did mean Mayan!! I said they deify maize which is 100% true – nothing to do with geography. I understand that the Aztec people were pre-colombian inhabitants of this area and also have a maize God. Anyway, glad you stopped by the page – cheers…
