So here they are saying that the Yazidi faith goes back to 4000 BCE, so this is 6000 years.  They say it started, I guess in Persia or the Middle-East.  But they are also saying that it connects to the Hindu faith.

Peacocks are native to India, not to the Middle-East.

Their two scripture books go back only to the 11th and 12th Centuries, CE.

okay, this has their scriptures, and some critical discussion

A comment, it has always seemed to me that the first half or so of Genesis was probably a refutation of earlier narratives.  But if you do not know that those earlier narratives are, then you will probably misinterpret the intent in Genesis.  Well it seems now that the Yezidi have part of this earlier tradition.  Expanding on the same root narratives, but in a different way.
