Veda-Avesta comparison[edit]

This section sounds like one person's theory; especially the footnote saying that Antequil-Duperron deliberately omitted all material bearing a resemblance to Hinduism, that the Avesta is the missing part of the Vedas and that Iranian and Zoroastrian topics are referred to in the Vedas. It certainly bears no resemblance to anything I have read in normal scholarship about Zoroastrianism.

If it is not substantiated within a reasonable time, I shall remove it. --Sir Myles na Gopaleen (the da) (talk) 17:33, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Now done. The only link given was to one man's conspiracy blog, about how Zoroaster came from India, Western scholarship of Zoroastrianism was founded by an agent of the "French Jew Rothschild", HIV does not cause AIDS etc etc. --Sir Myles na Gopaleen (the da) (talk) 15:29, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
