Just to bring back this thread to the "Judaism is really just Zoroastrianism is disguise" meme, it's interesting to note that Dr. Makow has noticed precisely the same thing:
The Jewish Pharisees rejected Christ. They practised a naturalistic religion that turned Christ's message on its head. Man is God, rules the universe, and defines reality. We can indulge our desires. Dating back to Zoroastrianism, the Jewish Cabala reverses the roles of God and Lucifer and embraces occult symbols, rituals and blood sacrifices.
It's also interesting to note that the so-called "Jews of India", the Parsis, are practicing Zoroastrians.. all the more interesting when you note how similar to word "Parsi" is to "Pharisee"..
