    What effect has Zoroastrianism had on other religions?

    Let me quote from a site:

    Source

    What do you think of the claims made? Just how much can one religion influence another? What does such influence mean for claims of inspiration? for claims of uniqueness?

    Be interested to see what folk write.

    Can you explain "Zoroastrian heretic group" are they refering to them as hereitics in the eyes of Jews or Heretics in the eyes of Zoroatrians?

    As to what the Hebrew text refers to in relation to Cyrus...I await commentary from our Jewish friends...

    Here is an interesting quote: "...according to Max Muller, had it not been for the Persian defeats at the decisive battles of Marathon and Salamis, if, in other words, the western march of the Persian Empire had not been stopped there, Zoroastrianism rather that Judeo-Christianity would undoubtedly have been the prevailing religion of Europe and the Americas."
