Zoroastrianism is probably one of the most self contradictory religions in the world these days. Ahura Mazda, the uncreated creator, can and cannot be seen. I mean wtf is that. What's your opinion on the religion?

I think it's the worst of the ancient religions, without it Judaism probably wouldn't exist and look at all the trouble that's caused since. You could say it is directly responsible for all religious terrorism, modern Islamic terrorism and medieval Christian witch burnings wouldn't happen without it. It doesn't even have the nice part that Christianity has.

Well if you're looking for ideas that make sense, ancient Iran probably isn't the best place to start.

Does it even exist or have any followers now?

I mean sure you could say its responsible for a lot of things, but then we don't know what life would be like if it hadn't existed. Something equally as strange would've been created instead.

The total number of currently practicing Zoroastrians is unknown but estimates range from about 125,000 to over 300,000


By 2008, the birth-to-death ratio was 1:5; 200 births per year to 1,000 deaths.


They are getting to Baha'i heaven faster people, then it'll be 5th century BCE Iran for eternity.

If you ask me, ancient Persians need to get with the program and read some Hitchens essays and stop being so backwards.

I know quite a few who are practicing. It's cool I guess, just believe whatever you want as long as you don't hurt anyone.

edit: I think their death towers are quite interesting

Doesn't pretty much every religion rely on an 'uncreated creator' who can be 'seen but not seen'?

Saying that the Christian god is caring and the Jewish god is vengeful is a form of anti-semitism, as well as being kind of ignorant, i'd just watch out on that. People think/say it all the time, but its a pretty harmful attitude to have, if you think about it.

Also, Zoroastrianism gave us Thus Spoke Zarathustra, and probably Zoro, so i'm pretty much fine with it.
