It's hard to say since there were no written records that far back but most anthropologist agree that it was likely a Earth based religion that worshiped aspects of Nature, the Sun, Moon or the Earth itself. There are small idol statues found to be over 35,000 years old depicting goddess figures with exagerated features like hips and breasts that likely represent a Earth Goddess/ Fertility Goddess Also cave paintings that go back even further often show images of people worshiping a figure in the sun, or spirals which are usually used to depict the cyclical nature of life

Not quite. The question being asked is about historical religions, not personal preference.

Religion is a religion is a religion. Most Christians believe Mit Romney is a pagan. U do know monotheism predates the Old Testament? In Egypt. Abraham got it from a pharaoh and was "well pleased."

This also depends on the god. Those that worship the Sun worship a finite god- at least these followers can see and feel their god and talk to it like all gods. But unfortunately when it comes to gods nobody has proven to hear it speak...claims to hear a god are as baseless as my claim to be abducted by aliens.

According to ken Hamm he's only 6000 like the earth. 1st dribble from those Iron Age women haters is: in the beginning. That contradicts your statement. And the word is the word is the word. Quit evolving that book to fit with the ever changing world. Stick to you AR-15s like Kenny

I'd search thru what we know from Samaria. They're the oldest civilization, had written language...and is unquestionable proof that marriage didn't start with the Jews...the bible.

ohhhhhh, well adam and eve were actually the first "married" couple. They didn't have the tux, dress or rings, but they were together male and female as God intended. If you do the research you learn things that may have been hidden for the sake of seekers.

Please, been there done that. That story is for children, because Mose didn't know what else to say. Ya. A woman ate fruit and ruined 10s of billions of lives? Please say no more unless god picks up and has u here to prove something. Enough

The first religion it the modern terms of an organized system of worship with rites, rituals, and written instructions was the pyramid texts from 3500 bce. But the practice of worshiping the natural and super natural could be traced as far back as 200,000 years when the fast evidenced burials took place.

Taboo: a survival of species technique whereby fear of death is the motivator. Methane is invisible and heavier than air and is released from swamps and bogs. Those areas were to be avoided because everyone that went there never returned. The elders needed to establish a way to describe how death could magically come to children if they went there. After eons man came to realize that there was a greater power than he and has been seeking answers to the same question we ask now. That is what makes this site so interesting. You will find that opinions are like noses, almost everyone has one and sometimes none of them are the same.
