He is sometimes described as one of the 4 creator gods. He was a god not just of the Aztec but of the Nahua (this includes the Aztec, Toltec, and Zapotec), and was god of many aspects of life—medicine, fertility, agriculture, the air and clouds, Venus as the morning star, thieves, and gambling. As one of the four creator gods he was describe as white and with the cardinal direction west - the other 4 gods being blue, red and black (in other words, if you think he was really supposed to be a white person then there were blue people around also).

Doug. Whilst RW's mission is serious our approach is somewhat less so. We traditionally take a SPOV - Snarky point of view - and such is the case with this article.
I would say the point of the article is the 'woo' aspect where some people take the 'white, bearded' Quaziwotsit as indicative that there was pre-columbian contact with Europeans. As you point out, this is bollocks but, then woo commonly is - by definition.
So, why the chocolate. Well, I would guess that is because the original creator of the article - WfG - is a well known chockaholic and therefore, for fun, picked out that single aspect of Quazi's divinity for fun. As I say, it's all about the snark.
Feel free to improve the article but, if you do so, the concentrate on the crazy things woomeisters and new agers assign to Quazi rather than the stuff that comes with any religion. Does this make any more sense? Bad Faith (talk) 13:17, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
Sure, it makes life easier also. I can still copy from Wikipedia, right (so long as I link to the article) as I've done quite a bit of that there, with sources of course. Dougweller (talk) 15:00, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
We actually don't look too highly on copying from Wiki. but if you are reading wiki and putting it into your own words, by all means, go for it. Please leave chocolate? lol I need my chocolate god, and he's the closest! :-) --Green mowse.pngGodotIz a sekret Kristian 15:06, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
I should add "unless you wrote the stuff from WikiP". then by all means, directly copy! --Green mowse.pngGodotIz a sekret Kristian 15:07, 16 August 2012 (UTC)

Why ...[edit]

... the revert of Agrajag's edits without comment? Courtesy alone should dictate some explanation! Scream!! (talk) 22:46, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Indeed. The new version even has a section on bullshit, the avoidance of which produces a pleasant aroma in Muriel's nostrils. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 23:00, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
Something about it just seemed off to me when i rollbacked it the first time to see just what the difference was .--Miekal 23:30, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
