    Simon, I have a simple question. Namely, on the basis of what evidence exactly do you assert that Zoroaster was a historical person? Is there any evidence beyond the existence of the religion itself for the existence of its supposed founder? Or does what is in the historical record merely boil down to assertions made by purveyors of that religion in its holy scriptures? If that is the case then there is precisely zero evidence and Herodotus saying, "there's a religion in Persia called Zoroastrianism which its adherents say was founded by a man called Zoroaster" doesn't change anything. Exactly the same applies to the supposed founders of all the so-called Abrahamic religions including but not limited to Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammed, for none of whom is there a shred of hard evidence that flesh and blood people of those names ever existed in the real world.

    Thank you Islam for destroying all relics of Zoroastrianism... 🤬 Wait, you mean people who claim to tell us the news lie...? 😱😂(the tales of the Persian empire). The Bronze Age is when they sacrificed humans and worshipped the sun all over the world? It makes sense they were destroyed. Genius khan’s history vanishing is owed to Russia, but he earned it.

(Ancient Times) What if we get 10'000 people together to make the world's largest picture of a whale?

    Some History says that the real Gengus Khan was NOT oriental at all. The Mongals that raided Europe were not Asian, but a white skinned race with tendency towards red hair- which makes sense. History is so manipulated to serve an agenda. There is a reason why the novel 1984 talks about digital information being something that can be changed in a moment- but that has always been true. We can trust nothing today, not even that the media promulgates a pandemic, which would not have to be advertised so much if it were true. We would need no one to be telling us it is happening. Trust nothing but what is here and fundamental humans needs.

    The Bronze age collapse never happened. Dating based on the Egyptian king list of Manetho gives a 200 year lacuna for which there is no actual archeological record. This gap is assumed by conventional historians to have been a collapse of civilisation throughout the eastern Mediterranean. It defies logic. See 'Centuries of Darkness' by Peter James for further elucidation.

    Zorastrianism came before Christianity and ~1,200 years before Islam. More accurate to say those religions borrowed from it than the other way around.

    using the connections of ancient names and professions, we can deduce the name should be arranged as zo-roaster, denoting a culinary background. similarly, hero-dotus, indicates a heroic connection. it is still possible to make progress in unraveling these ancient mysteries from the available evidence, with sufficient rigor and level of intellect.

Are you really so crass as to belittle the religions of 2.5 billion people? And your stab at dating the prophet comes out about 1,000 years, or more, too late. Try looking a few hundred years BEFORE Abraham.

    I would not under-estimate the losses sustained by The Roman Army during the Bar Kokhba Revolt in 132 ce at the hands of the Jews. The 9th Legion may have been one of two legions that was effectively destroyed at the beginning of the Revolt, a detail that Hadrian would successfully bury. The first two years of that war were won by the Judeans. The Romans were completely evicted and they had to retake Judea anew.

    The greatest mystery in the Americas, was who built the awesome city of Teotihuacan in current Mexico and what it was originally called? When the Mexica /Aztecs discovered it, it had been abandoned for around 800 years. They called it Teotihuacan, meaning the "Birthplace of the gods", but to this day...no one knows its original name or anything about the builders.
