Some time in the history of the universe no one is quite sure when there was born a man This man would eventually be the first to found a monotheistic religion The name of this man is Zoroaster the name is actually a corruption of Zarathushtra Zoroasters birth date along with whether his religion is actually monotheistic is a subject of great debate The opinions concerning his birth and consequently about the beginning of this great religion range from as early as 6000 years before Plato to as late as 500 BC In any case he was born somewhere in Iran although whether in the East or West is also arguable In the early writings the people belonging to this religion are called Zarathustris the system he taught is called Mazdaism The present day followers are called Parsees Zoroaster removed the multiplicity of deities from religion and created a faith in which there were two or perhaps one God All other higher beings were regarded as demons or evil spirits No one knows for sure the different stages of popularity that Zoroastrianism experienced We do know that at the time of Darius I 558 -486 BC it was protected by royalty Later however Zoroastrians were continually chased by the members of the Islamic religion through Kathiawar in India and Surat and finally they settled again in Bombay The universe is the battleground The opponents are Mazda Ahura later to be known as Ahura Mazda and Anra Mainyu later called Ahriman Ahura Mazda is the good force and the bad is Ahriman The battle will last till Ahura Mazda defeats Ahriman in the year 12000 we are now presumably around 11500 This is the world and its future in accordance with Zoroastrian beliefs Zoroaster Zoroaster had a very non-conforming mind and was forced to flee his parents house without his parents consent because of the rebuking he gave to those who sacrificed cattle or drank intoxicating
