Hi everyone, since a few months ago, I have been trying to correct misperceptions of Zoroastrianisms' influence on Christianity at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:History_of_Christianity#Th e_Zoroastrian_background

How wikipedia works is that the more people believe in something, the more influence and bearing that view will have in the entries.

I need you guys to come in there and support the obviously academically correct view that Zoroastrianism influenced Judaism and therefore Christianity to an extreme degree.

If I am reading you correctly wikipedia is going be to full of incorrect information soon. Majority view is not always correct. There are over 1 billion Christians in the world and even if only 20% of them have fundementalist view that would out number the number of people that have heard anything about Zoroastranism and have access to the net by say... 10000000000000000 to 1. That is going to be a lost battel already. There are many more examples that majority of people are going to create their own version of reality. More Turks than Kurds that means wikipedia soon is going to call Kurds mountain Turks, more Arabs than Israelis ( you know what that means) more Chinese than Tibetans and so on...

yes exactly.  Regardless, you can go in there, register an account in 1 min, and vouche for the viewpoint I'm defending.

If the majority of people are for our view, then the general consensus will be that it will be what is included.

A lot of people are ignorant towards Zoroastrianism and it's
worldwide influence on religions. Personally, I am boycotting
wikipedia, their information seems to just be incorrect, no other
way to describe it. I don't see why we have to pay attention to
every single petty or major site that displays incorrect historical
information about Iranians and their history.

Wikipedia is by far the most horrible source available on the net. Everything read there should be taken with half a grain of salt. There is always some fool trying to change history to make it fit his view or political needs of his nation...

Anyways, it is very influential, so have an influence.  At least read the discussion and maybe you'll see how easy it is to join and have an effect on what is decided on

I was chatting with a friend of mine recently and he tried to correct a historical statement I made by quoting Wikipedia. I made my statement in the full knowledge I had learnt it from no less than five highly regarded academic publications.

What is Wikipedia? How does it work? Why is it so inaccurate? Can any information it supplies be trusted?

Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia that is open to everyone. Meaning anyone can jump rigt in and edit things. This is good for those who are unbiased, have good sources and can write well. Its horrible when you consider the amount of untra-nationalists who jump jump in and add the propaganda the way they like it.
Before you take anything from there with a grain of salt. I suggest you look at the discussion page which is usually on the top.
Here is a link to wiki.http://www.wikipedia.org/

judaism was not influenced by Zoastrian beliefs, rather the ancient religion of Abraham was influenced by the one true faith.

Back then the Holy book was the enumma elish compare the enumma elish of akkad to the book of genesis.
An army of sheep led by a lion would defeat an army of lions led by a sheep.

Yes it was, Judaism was heavily infiltrated by Zaroastrian Priests after Cyrus liberated them from Babylon, they in effect turned it into a monotheistic religion with the advent of a new Jewish cult the Pharosies (sp) a derivative of Parsis (Persians).

It is also no great surprise that many of the old testiment stories are derived from Babylonian/Akkadian Myths (Noah and the Ark).

Iskender Bey:

Wikipedia is nothing more than a "blog."  If you want to understand an academic discipline, study it at a university under the supervision of a recognized academic supervisor, and subject to the discipline of academic rigor. 

The internet is a source of semi-educated, half baked nonsense.  As a neurologist at Johns Hopkins University Medical Center, who is treating my wife for multiple sclerosis, said to us, "99% of what is on the internet is garbage."
