Islamic-Zoroastrian Hybrid

Any chance of a Islam-Zoroastrian hybrid, like Zesucutò is for Christianity and Xintò (Shinto)? --Sikulu 16 December 2005, 11:19 (GMT)

Very unlikely. They fought a big war over the issue in the 7th or 8th century. Neither religion is particularly amenable to hybridisation in the first place. This doesn't mean Zoroastrians and Moslems don't adapt to different cultures when they settle in new places (I could see a Z family in Philadelphia having a Christmas tree, but nòt attaching any religious meaning to it).
Zesucuto is a bit of a poser, as (occidental) Christianity is no more amenable to such heresy. Mind you, Zesucuto was able to come about because the occidental form of Christianity (the Church of the East) was indeed more amenable and in no real position to stop such heresy from taking root. I doubt it would be considered a "hybrid" by most Christians either. Some might see it as a heretical form, others as an entirely different religion. Elemtilas 09:04, 16 December 2005 (PST)
Indeed, it's more acurate to describe it as a Christian-influenced form of Shinto than as a form of Christianity or a hybrid. Nik 19:00, 16 December 2005 (PST)
