Dear Parviz and Dino
A GREAT argument is to say that Mazdayasna is older and more ancient (good attributes these days) than both philosophy and religion as we know them and therefore transcends both and is its own category altogether. Why not? Philosophy is just a poor copycat of Mazdyasna, its original exercise. Haha.

There are two possible answers:
(1) Mazdayasna is the world's first philosophical religion.
(2) It's heavily Eurocentric to separate philosophy from religion. Let's not overrate the Greeks.
My two cents,

How do you shake off persons who insist that Mazda-Yasna does not mean Philo-Sophia but means Theo-Sophia? (Philo-Sophia = Mazda-Yasna for me, Theo-Sophia = Dev-Ysana)
