I have been intensely interested in the Good Religion for many years, although from my home in central Oklahoma, it is difficult to find much information. I was raised, and remain, Christian, and my wife is Jewish. We have six children at home, and I have tried to keep them mindful of the inspired teaching of Zarathrustra. I know this is a much debated topic, but what good sources or information can you provide on the date of Zarathrustra's birth? Even in my youth, the dates in history books (circa 600 B.C.E.) seemd absurdly late. Mary Boyce seems to waver between 1200 and 1800 B.C.E., but I have seen philological reviews suggest much earlier dates. Any help? Thanks...Bruce
