Why join Mazdayasna - why not just remain an atheist?

"Religion" is a social endeavor, not a school. The concept of religion as a school is very Bahai but not a universal idea. So a "religion" is rather an excuse for people like you and me to share an interest and become friends.
If somebody already preached the truth 3,700 years ago - is it not then the ultimate intellectual and social position to JOIN the train of truth that already exists rather than claim to seek the truth all over again?
If you want take a stance against the stupidities of this world, including the secular and atheist stupidities - is it not then the best position to take a position which PREDATES them all and still has complete and utter credibility today?
That's what I think. And the other Mazdayasni converts I know. You don't have to become a Zoroastrian. Zoroastrians do not believe in any heaven, so they don't missionize. Which is precisely why it is the ultimate "religion" to join. It just makes life easier. So why not???
Of course Zoroastrianism is not more of a religion than Daoism and Buddhism are. It is a philosophical tradition. Actually the opposite of the Platonist tradition which has dominated western thought since the Greeks. The true "Zoroastrian" among the Greeks was instead Heraclitus.

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…
