The same one all theists worship, the one that agrees with all their own biases.

Jews Christians and Muslims all worship the same god. The god of the Old Testament.

If you read the second Isaiah - Isaiah 40-48 it is a word for word parallel of Yasna 44 of the Gathas written 700 or so years by Zoroaster.

The Jews Christians and Muslims therefor worship Ahura Mazda.

Yeah, I'd agree on an anthropological level but in reality they worship different prophets that all disagree with each other, they have different practices, customs etc...the whole thing is bullshit!!! They might worship different bullshit but bullshit is still bullshit.

But yeah, we should say judeo/Christian/Islamic

Boris, let me gently inform you of one of our local customs.

We are quite skeptical here, and proof of claims is needed from everybody, not just believers.

It's not hostile, and the Mods will come down on anybody making personal attacks.

Ideas, though, have to be strong, or they cop it.

Now, academic theologians don't seem to have followed your Ahura Mazda = Jehovah idea, do they?

PS: I won't be arguing with you. I will offer my help. PM me if you need info or more.

If you feel you'd like help from somebody else, ask one of the Mods and a volunteer will be found.

Zoroastrians: Their Religious Beliefs and Practices (The Library of Religious Beliefs and Practices) 2nd Edition

The world expert on the subject

Nora Elisabeth Mary Boyce (2 August 1920 – 4 April 2006) was a British scholar of Iranian languages, and an authority on Zoroastrianism. The Royal Asiatic Society's annual Boyce Prize for outstanding contributions to the study of religion is named after her.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Boyce

Do you say she has no idea what she is talking about?

Did you live in Iran for years and study the religions and consider yourself the world expert?

Are you saying the 2nd Isaiah does not parallel word for word Yasna 44 of thew Gathas? Well it does

I don't get what you are driving at here.

Mary Boyce is the world expert on this subject. Is she wrong?

Can you cite a peer-reviewed work by Boyce or another, making the claim, Boris?

Boyce is the world expert on the subject as the Wiki article explains and I have read her books - more than one and more than once.

It is well known that the 2nd Isaiah is a "striking parallel" to Yasna 44 and the name Ahura Mazda was removed and YHWH inserted.

To say this is not well known and understood is to say Mary Boyce did not know what she was talking about in all her books. She mentions that fact many times.

She is dead now bless her - but here is a book I suggest you read from cover to cover - you will find it all in there.

Zoroastrians: Their Religious Beliefs and Practices (The Library of Religious Beliefs and Practices) 2nd Edition - Mary Boyce.

Claim? Fact not claim.
