Zoroastrianism, the ancient pre-Islamic religion of Iran that survives there in isolated areas and, more prosperously, in India, where the descendants of Zoroastrian Iranian (Persian) immigrants are known as Parsis, or Parsees.The Iranian prophet and religious reformer Zarathustra (flourished before the 6th century bce)—more widely known outside Iran as Zoroaster, the Greek form of his name)—is traditionally regarded as the founder of the religion. Zoroastrianism contains both monotheistic and dualistic features. It likely influenced the other major Western religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. For a discussion of the context in which Zoroastrianism arose, see ancient Iranian religion.

Zoroastrian was more likely influenced by Judaism , as Judaism had the true living God , where all other religions of the ancient past before Zoroastrian had fallen angels as their god

My information may not be 100% accurate but Islamic scholars came to a conclusion based on the only reference of Magians in Qur'an that Zoroastrians are People of the book and Prophet Zoroaster is a prophet of Islam, just like Abraham, Moses and Jesus are, and they all preached monotheism.

Quran speaks about Zoroastrinians only in one verse. They are referred as Magians. They are religious community of Persia who follow Prophet Zoroaster.

"Indeed, those who have believed and those who were Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and those who associated with Allah - Allah will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection. Indeed Allah is, over all things, Witness". (22:17)

Zoroastrians originated the concept of eternal punishment in a fiery pit centuries before Christianity came along. Christianity stole the idea of eternal torment from the Zoroastrians and others because it was a very effective tool to bludgeon pagans into accepting Jesus. "Accept Jesus or burn in torment forever!" the churchmen screamed at the pagans. Very effective. And very deceptive.

Quote:
“The New Testament does not describe the torment of Gehenna or portray Satan as the lord of Gehenna. These are later literary accoutrements.”

Yeah, yeah right. You're taking advantage of the lack of knowledge of Zoroastrianism in the US by promoting more bogus "data".

According to Zoroaster, people are redeemed by 'good' thoughts, good words, and good actions, not by believing in any person or figure. Your alleged thread of connection doesn't exist.

Can't resist attacking Christianity by any means, huh?
