    Does anyone have knowledge about this religion? (I've seen some random threads that mentioned it). Stumbled across it and it seems pretty interesting as it influenced modern monotheistic religions and is still existing as a religion on its own. It seems to be pretty interpretative though in regards to its substance (it's a bit hard to figure out).

    Not anything you couldn't find out on Wikipedia. Why the interest, man?

    It being one of the oldest and originating religions, I recalled that Judaism, Christianity and Muslim beliefs all have similar originating points. So this one
    sparked my interest as Brittanica is stating it might be one of these. How I came to it...no idea. Random brainfart.
    Also Nietzsche I guess, as the names really ringed a bell lol.

    There's an interesting causal question there...

    Are the Abrahamic religions descendants of Zoroastrianism? (memetic argument)

    OR

    As Ernst Renan claimed, is the desert monotheistic? (environmental determinist argument)

    Hmm, that's a good question.

    In regards to Islam, I've seen an interesting documentary once (I'll try to find it) in regards to the origin of the Black stone that is inside the Kaaba (the Monument at the center of Mekka),
    I remember vaguely that what's inside originated from hinduism and was a symbol of fertility (if I look around it seems this is in discussion in different places, but unproven?).
    https://islamreview.com/kaaba-kaba-kaaba-kabah/

    Some trivia: https://muslimmatters.org/2012/11/15/ten-things-you-didnt-know-about-the-kaaba/

    Ancient religion is interesting in general in my opinion. And as I see it, the Abrahamic religions are an evolution from a mix of ancient tribal stories and rules of conduct,
    which then have been written down as a set of religious "laws" to which a population needs to adhere to. So I'd think the desert became monotheistic AND had heavy influence from
    Zoroastrianism as one of the ancient tribal sources (as I do recognise similarities between these religions).

    (usual Disclaimer: I'm by any means no expert in this, just my take on the topic)
