The pathos and ethos of Zoroastrianism

Zoroastrianism is not a democracy where we vote for which interpretation is right.
We study the religion all for ourselves, but most importantly, we think critically for ourselves.
This is not a religion for people to follow, this is a religion for people to get their own critical thinking started!
And that is widely agreed, Iris! Because this is the pathos and ethos of Zarathushtra himself combined. We are asked to follow his example, not follow him personally directly. That sort of blind faith was exactly what he was opposed to.

Dear Iris,

Yes, other Zoroastrians will disagree (but not all of them). And I'm perfectly fine with that, since Zoroastrianism has such a rich culture. It is so old and there have been so many encounters, influence and change throughout the centuries.

Hi

>>Immortality here is therefore not immortality in any Judeo-Christian- Muslim sense but rather approaching the transcendental quality of The Divine as outside the limitations of time and space.<<

OK thank you sir. Let me ask this, since you and Dino seem to be on the same page on this, if I ask other Zartouche's they may disagree with you two on this?

What are scientists Children of the knowledge Primal seed of cosmical machine Schemes and terms from sky laboratories Investigation‘s brought by Creator‘s wit
Physical aspect and lace of metaphysic
Supreme touch urges to create
Science wit knows sense of moving
But Divine can’t be proved by theme

ARMY OF LOVERS’ CLONES are as French résistance. French communist Michael romances with positive lad from positive French Gestapo. Local stripper Sarah is busy worker. Female Polizei is in jealousy. Unhonest Owner of Milk Factory is only one negative person. There is no blood and horrors in the story that is the result of mobilistic philosophy. Do you want Whole Clip script, Alex? And what about the Romanovs and The communists who live in complete peace or BWO, VACCUUM and ARMY OF LOVERS members as heroes of fancy tales?

PS there may be some silliness in my first commentary. I was shy that time. It’s my explanation…
