We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Dualistic Religions - Zoroaster founded the Persian ancient religion of Zoroastrianism, that has had a major influence on the Abrahamic religions. Kriwaczek said, “Zoroaster’s reputation had been high in the classical world.” (2003) He taught the dualistic forces of good and evil, and proclaimed that the world is a Cosmic battleground between them. The symbol for Zoroastrianism is fire, and it represented an enlightened force that defeats evil. Zoroaster said that Ahura Mazda was the one true God (Good spirit) and Angra Mainyu was the evil spirit (Bad spirit). He announced the natural world is the battlefield between Ahura Mazda and Angra Mainyu. They are dualistic enemies competing forces after the souls of mankind. Sound familiar? Persian Zoroastrianism had a major influence on biblical stories founded in Mesopotamia (Sumeria). The Jewish Bible incorporated many of these Sumerian stories. The holy book of Zoroastrianism, Avesta, has had an impact on Greek philosophers from Pythagoras to Plato. Hellenistic philosophy influenced the Catholic Church and the European Renaissance. Friedrich Nietzsche would be swayed by Zoroastrianism, and that influence can be seen in his writings in Thus Spoke Zarathustra (4 parts - 1883-1885).  Thus, a major teaching of the Abrahamic religions (good vs. evil) was borrowed from ancient Zoroastrianism.

If I were to subscribe to a religious cult Roscrusian would be as good or better than others.

Zoroastrians as well because people who subscribe to it know more HISTORICALLY about pre-abrihamic time.

I worked with a guy who was  Roscrusian. They have a temple in San Jose (CA - U.S.A).

I looked at Roscrusian philosophy it's interesting.

I remember reading about Zoroaster and his influence on Jewish and Christian thinking some years ago but it's a really fascinating subject.
