"Baphomet" the name is based off a desert peasant deity that predates islam that was used in the conjunction of local islamic worship practices, So baphomet isn't even the correct name that was a bastardization of the name muhammad when said in French. So Baphomet doesn't exist prior to this and was never actually worshiped as baphomet.They were worshiping muhammad with pagan rituals hence the goat and not a pig, chicken or cow.
So in all accounts since Baphomet was made up rather recently in this century by edgy jews and degenerates as a fuck you to Christianity and European social order, so that is what Baphomets looks like. Another step further is the depicted Baphomet is suppose to be male and female in more detailed accounts.
So quite frankly its all made up from bad historical knowledge of retarded leftist jews that wanted a degenerate religion to not feel guilt.
