[Zarathustra, who lived in what is now Iran 900 years ago]

Fail. Zarathustra/Zoroaster predates Buddha, Christ, and Muhammad. It's often speculated that the "Magi" in the bible were Zoroastrians.

The age of Zoroastrianism is disputed, but that it existed before 500 BCE is known for sure.

Where was "900 years ago" pulled from? Whatever the source was, burn it now and never use it again.
