SORRY!!!  :-)  Anyways, what you state, however, seems consistent
to me.  "Two Gods, one good, one evil, locked in endless struggle."
In Christian belief we have Christ & the devil (who once was united
with God in Heaven).  In Zarathustra's teachings, we have two gods,
one evil and one good.  The "spirits" of the Bookwus are aligned
along dark and light forces.  

So.... Explicate your modifications to make the theory work!!!!

Isn't that what this whole discourse is for?
