Yazidis (Izadis) and their ties to Zoroastrianism

The ancient religion is rumoured to have been founded by an 11th century Ummayyad sheikh, and is derived from Zoroastrianism (an ancient Persian faith founded by a philosopher), Christianity and Islam. 
It is always nice to hear to be referred to Zoroaster as a philosopher.
