Since I saw this thread(back when it was fresh), I googled around a bit and kept some bookmarks. After reading a bit more, I continue to be struck by the similarities between Zoroastrianism and Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
One thing in particular that strikes me as an example is found in a the revelations of a prophet of the religion several hundred years after Zoroaster, in which various hells corresponding to various forms of wickedness are described.
Very, very interesting it was to me.
Here is one that made me say "Hm..."
(1) I also saw the soul of a woman (2) who ever dug into a hill with her own breasts; (3) and ever held, on her head, a mill-stone like a cap. (4) And I asked thus: 'What sin was committed by this body, whose soul suffered so severe a punishment?' (5) Srosh the pious, and Adar the angel, said (6) thus: 'This is the soul of that wicked woman who, in the world, destroyed her own infant, and threw away the corpse.'It occurs to me that if the hole in the center of that millstone were a couple inches bigger around, it might slip on down past her ears, in which case it would then be hung around her neck.
