Sayevia's Religion

Elie Chacar 10:55, 26 October 2012 (EDT)

The beginning of a religion:

When the scientists first came to Sayevia.They needed to eat so they began to search for trees, they found a lot of trees that don't give fruits or vegetables. After a lot of searching, they found a huge tree that gives all kinds of fruits and vegetables. And after a while they felt connected to the tree which started to talk to specific people called "the sayeviors" asking them to encourage the "sayevs" to pray to it for the comming of Sayev's god,the god of gods.

The god of gods

Marc Tohme 10:10, 27 October 2012 (EDT)

So the sayevs prayed and prayed. And after many years the tree opened and a man came out of it. He had leaves for hair and branches for arms. Then he started to talk to the sayevs and tell them that they have to worship the tree because it's the source of life of Sayevia and that they have to worship him because he gave the power to that tree. And while he was out of the tree he impregnated some women and their babies were born gods, so he became the god of gods.

The Gods Charbel Bathiche

Katakch god of darkness

A myth says that a masteries shadow terrorized one of the sayevian camps, it  killed every living thing within 100m radies it became a death zone. The people who servived began hallucinating shouting Katakch the destroyer the dark shadow the imortal. A terore  was about to hit the sayevians,the only way to stop him was by putting on a stone a drop of water from the main tree of life.Now there are some secret society that preformes retualls to quip Katakch in the crused stone beliving that the god of darkness well take over the hole planet and no one would get in his way.     

Distrompso god of the dead

Distrompso was a farmer, but on the day of his death his body desentagrated forming a White   Crystal. They belive he is the god of the dead because when the Crystal was buried all of the corps turnd into green wich symbolize  that life continues for the dead.

Ekaron god of magic

  When the sayevian landed on the planet,one of the scientists was wondering in a valley for finding new resources, on his way back to the camp he found a blue light.The cause of it was a man sparkling  crafting some kind of artifact, once the scientist got close the mestiriace man desapeard into thin are. The name Ekaron represent blue light and he is considerd god of magic because the artifact recovered from the cave has helped in curing some diseases, charming some weapons, and the scientist who held the artifact can now see in the dark, cast some kind of magical spell. Scientists are now unlocking the magical power of the artifact.

Davanty goddess of love

A women's scream was heard, a heart chattered. A farmer saw her she turned into a red flame her body vanished into thin air and the sky turnd red. She formd into a star and the call her gaddess of love because every Sayevian woman can still hear the pain the scream of  Davanty a woman whose haert was broken  by a man who left for another woman.Her love for him was eternal even after her death you cn still see his name carved on the ground where she vanished.

Dostavok the god of land

The myth said that before harvet seasone a man named Dostavok always kissed the ground. People thought he was crazy but the next day his harvest grew bigger and bigger. When he died his body transformed into a tree and he is now a main land mark in the sayevian geographie

Economic system

Joelle Sakr 11:51, 26 October 2012 (EDT)

Currency in this culture is close to trade. People get their 'cash' by planting since seeds replace the American Dollar or Lebanese Pound for example. So there money actually does grow on trees.


Joelle Sakr 11:51, 26 October 2012 (EDT)

In all of the Sayevz'z paintings we find at least a tree with three branches on every side (the tree of sayevia) sybolising as well hospitality of the people.


The sayevz's hat's color

Gaby Abou Karam 11:44, 26 October 2012 (EDT)

Every hat of every sayevs has a special color for the leave on it:

Red: love

Yellow: generous

Foushia: energetic

Orange: funny

Green: wisdom

Brown: serious

White: patient

Black: stingy

The Family Tree

Gaby Abou Karam 12:18, 26 October 2012 (EDT)

The Family tree is found in the middle of Sayevia. The tree represents all of the sayevs. And it's called "Family" tree because the sayevs are one big family. When a sayevs is born a new leaf grows on the tree . When a sayevs dies the leaf becomes grey.

Greetings and Goodbyes

Marc Tohme 11:01, 27 October 2012 (EDT)

When two people meet each person should jump 2 times and then stare in the other's eyes for five seconds.

When three or more people meet each person should jump many times based on the number of people meeting (i.e. if four people meet each person should jump four times) and then they clap one time.

And when they have to leave each person should take three steps backwards and then turns a 180 degrees, afterwards he takes three steps forwards, turns back and finally waves his right foot.

Signs of disrespect

Marc Tohme 14:39, 6 November 2012 (EST)

Changing the steps in the greetings and the goodbyes is considered as an insult.

When someone really wants to hurt another person he should say to him:" Nga lu kehe ngay Sayevs" which means :" you're not a true Sayevs" and that's very disrespectful because for all the people in Sayevia being a true Sayevs is very important, it is a question of pride.

Signs of respect

Marc Tohme 14:39, 6 November 2012 (EST)

To show your respect to someone who's sick you should shake this person's left pinky and then kiss his right pinky. We chose this fimger because the pinky represents the helath of a person.

To show respect to a person you meet in life you should stare at his eyes for a while, the length of the while represents how much you respect this person.

To show respect to someone you are talking to, you should look at his lips because not only you'll be hearing you'll be also seeing what this person is telling you.

Sayevia's day'"

At sayevia's day, all of the sayevz are competing against each other. The one who wins is named "cheif of the sayevz"

""Sayevia birth day""

When a new sayevz is born we plant for him a tree wich will grow with the sayevz.

"sayevia's lover""

To show his/her love to his/her soulmate, each one of the lover exchange with his/her soulmate his/her birthtree.

To find his/her soulmate the sayevz asks about the kind of his/her birthtree. Monia Doumit 10:24, 1 November 2012 (EDT)

Green Week Gaelle Massoud 04:19, 3 November 2012 (EDT)

The scientitsts organize a camp for the Sayevz in wich they divide them in groups , and each one of these try out new combinations of plant seeds in order to unravel new plant types.

"Birthday "

Every year on the sayevz birthday a fruit grows on the birthtree.

"Baptism" Baptism of the sayevz is done on the 7 month of the birth with tree leaves. Monia Doumit 15:18, 5 November 2012 (EST)

The religious buildings, known as the "Gods Trees", are the trees that the gods of sayevia lived in.
