1.) What are the basic teachings of Zoroaster? 2.) Is Zoroastrianism meant to be taken literally? Or more mystically? For example, how many people still believe in it's end of the world and afterlife teachings as literal? As well as it's scriptures? 3.) Are there any prophets after Zoroaster? 4.) Are there any Zoroastrian organizations in the US? Particularly in California or Georgia? 5.) What are some of it's stances on various social issues? Specifically homosexuality? As a gay individual, while some of the scriptures are not very gay friendly, many Zoroastrians have told me that preserving the faith is more important than people's personal lives. 6.) Can one syncretize non-Zoroastrian philosophy with the religion? Or is it like Judaism or Islam where it's strictly a full faith in and if itself?
