    The above is only counting those still being practiced today.

    I don't care if they're still being practiced. I just wanna know what is the oldest.

    With this being the case, the answer will be different ... all of that to say ... i still don't have the answer! :)

    :heart:

    From what I have studied, the oldest religion that was indeed practiced in every land inhabited by the ancient people is that of the Dogon. China, Babylon and a city of Egypt and the Amazon have oral stories of Creatures with a snake like torso and an upper body of a human. In Dogon oral history they were called Nummo. They are the origin of the Chinese dragon and are said to be accounted for teaching civilization.

    Take one step twards the Ancestors and they "Run" twards you*

    Hotep

    When we ask the "Right" questions...we then get the "Right" answers. We must know right now and for ever and ever...with out any doupt what so ever that "Spirituality" is not a Religion and is not even close to being a Religion.
    Spirituality is what you and every creature in "Creation" is born with...the "Sun"..."Moon"..."Stars"..."planests"...and "All" that is "Created" are "Created" by the "Creator" in the "Same"..."Fabric" of "Spirituality"! All that you see and don't see is one Creation and all a part of the Same "Incumpasing"...Spirituality. Every Child is born with every thing it needs untill it is "Corupted" by any thing that is called "Religion"...because "All" Religions are 'Man-Made' and not from the Creator-G-d. Think!!...Every thing we see out side in the openess of the "Sun" and "Sky" is Born with every thing it needs. Why then would a child after being born already knowing ware to find its mothers brest even before its eyes are open...now all of a sudden must be "indoctrinated" into some religion that all of us know are all in "Conflict" with each other and today as all ways the parcticiners are "All" at "War" doing "Exactly" what they all claim is againts their belief and that is to "Kill" another "Hue-Man" being. Then we sit in the Church, Temples, Synagoges, Halls and Mosques and Justify this "Evil" by saying...it is the will of the "Lord"?! The lord has nothing to do with any of the Evil that We choose for our selves...it is only us who has made the "Wrong"..."Evil" and "Wicked" choice to do Evil to ourselves in (ignorance) the name of Religion. There has never been or ever will be a Spirituality war fought over or for Spirituality...there is no need for that. Spirituality is only one...all of the "Initiation" schools, houses, temples or Holy African Bush are all the same...speaking the same words of G-d...Medu Neteru. Spirituality is nothing what ever any thing like a Religion...scence we don't know what it is...because we have been bought and spoiled by our arch "Enemy"...we think what we have is it...but it is Absolutely nothing except deception, corruption, myth, illusion, fabrication, lies and distortions of false "Sanctified Racist Doctrins" formulated through out time by the Binzantem, Greeks, Romans and others (indoeuropians) to overthrow the (indigenis Original People of the Earth called Africans) Spirituality that is "Real" with "Religions" that are all "False"...to control the "Minds" of the ignorant masses after being run amuck by the evil and wicked makers of "Religion, War, Invasion and Deceit...this is the only way that they could gain a foot hold on the minds of our "African-People"...only after Killing off the Elders who knew better than to follow any thing outside of the Spirituality they were born in...and taking the "Youth" or Children and Spoiling them, De-Huemanizing them, Corrupting them and...only then could the "Indo-Europians" get any one to Follow any of their Concocted, Made Up, Distorted and Fabricated Sactified Religions that they claim are all from the Lord or some "White" G-d that only looks like tham. They have us thinking that if we question them...we are questioning the word of the Lord?!...If we only knew...they are the only Slave-Lord in Question. We Africans in Amerikkka have went pretty "Crazy" and that is the only reason we are still "Slaves" to the System of White Superimacy...the Greatest Religion on Earth!!! There is no Religion larger or stronger because they are "All" one and the "Same"...the tinticles of a great Octopus that spreads its self all over the world Corrupting Hue-Mans to fallow them in their Wicketness and Filth. We have become de-scencitized to what is really going on because we were put to Spiritual and Mental Sleep called Death! We have been Hoodwinked, and Bamboozeled our intire lives by a Enemy who has only and ever "Lied" to us about every thing. If the "White" man and woman won't treat you your ancestors or children right...then why in the "Hell" would they now or ever "Teach" you right!??? To call any Religion Spirituality is a most Evil act and thought...there is nothing about religion that makes it Spiritual in the least or we would not allow ourselves to be Oppressed and remain in Servitude and Slavery as we find ourselves today...lost with out any real direction. Remember...No Religion on this Earth will ever free you from your Capters or ever Liberated you in the Least...you will for ever be a Slave, Clown and Bafoon as long as you Follow the (Indo-Europian) white mans Religions and not your Own Spirituality you are born in that also makes you..."Automaticly-Free and Liberated" in the Universal Fabric of Spirituality that is the universe and Natural Order of Things.
    Every Creature on earth thinks we are crazy because we don't know who we are any more and are in a Spiritual Death and no longer able to communicate with the Natural Order of Things as our Original Ancestors did...this is why every thing "Runs" away from you in fear. They (Ancestors) could litteraly "Speak to Creation and it Spoke back to them and they all understood each other because they all spoke the same Spirituality" and not some man made Religion that no one understands and all ways have to quote some book or sriptures that no one truely knows anything about...because if you knew the Truth...All Religions would Shut Down!

    In the words over the Enterances of Every Temple in (Merita) Kemet...Africa the African Ancestors Speak out through time and space........."People Know Thy Self " *

    Ase`


    Note: Spirituality is what you are born in...as all things are. "I am Because We are...And We are Because I Am. This could absolutely not be true if we are speaking of any Religion. Remember: Any Religion that religates the "Woman" to the "Inferior" position is Absolutely "False" to the woman and Hence so it is unto you African Man!! What kind of G-d would make it ok to oppress your own Mother, Doughter, Sister, Wife etc??? Then if you are thinking at all...how can you think you are free in any way...if "She" is not?

    I am in agreement. Destee you have a habit and it could just be subconscious on your part, but you keep trying to place "spirituality and religion together" and they are so far apart that it can not be done. "Spirituality simply is and needs no human to define it. A baby has spirituality but how many babies do you know that have, practice and understand the "man made element known as Religion?"

    Now Spiritual Development is another issue and even that can not be linked with the word or concept we call Religion. In terms of "what the oldest religion is"? Is there a specific reason you have for asking this question that you have the faculties to find out for yourself?

    thank you

    so true spirituality doesn't need words um it has "spirit" in it

    religion on the other hand needs words to thrive words words and more words present day religion anyway

    your example of the baby is so basic

    and yes spiritual development is lacking and that's why we're here

    This question is presented so that posters might give a name to a specific (organized) religion that has been around for the longest; however, to be religious, one does not need to adhere to a title for their religiosity. Therefore, their religion can simply be just that; religion. I say this because faith in the Heavenly Father has been around since the beginning. Adam and Eve knew the Father and had children that knew the Father and had faith in His Way, also. This was not called Christianity, or Islam, of Judaism, but they were religious, therefore having religion, and were faithful and spiritual minded; this faith came before all false doctrines of the world that exist today that fall under the title of religion.

    Man knew the Father in Heaven before he went astray, and now the Holy Son has given us to know who He is and to remember and to know the Father, again.
