Still being practiced?
Zoroastrianism came from pre-Zoroaster Mazdaism and is still practiced now.
Hinduism and it`s offshoot Buddhism continues to this day.
Judaism and the Abrahamics sort of branched off from Zoroastrianism too.
Mithraism owes it`s beginnings to it.
Christianity took a huge amount from Mithraism and Zoroastrianism, hence the Magi.
Pre Mazdaism there were many Pagan religions.
Who knows what someone has invented recently?
Not an easy question to answer within the constraints of this forum.

No, but here are 5 of the ones you hear about most often, from oldest to newest.
Judaism - Basically classical Christianity. Worships Yahweh. Less hateful, at least the modern ones. Divided into two types. Orthodox and reform. Fran Drescher is a reform Jew. A normal person who identifies with Judaism, and worships Yahweh. Orthodox Jews are the ones who dress oddly, and are more judgmental. Lots more rules for them. A lot of people don't like them though. Holy book = Torah
Christianity - Worships God, who also takes the form of Jesus and a Holy Ghost. All nonbelievers burn in hell eternally regardless of how good of people they are. Their holy book promotes slavery, murder, sexism, racism, etc etc. Holy book = Bible
Islam - Same as the above, but worships Allah, not Jesus. Generally more peaceful, but more crazy extremists. Holy book= Quran
Witchcraft/Wicca - Worships MANY gods, too many to list. Believe in the five elements, water, fire, earth, air, spirit. VERY peaceful. Their morals include basically, "If it doesn't do any harm, you can do it." NOT a group of crazy satan-worshipping revenge freaks at all. Nice, nice people. No holy book. perform spells.
Satanism - Don't believe in god or Satan. Worship Satan, but only figuratively. Basically Satan is the strong part of yourself that you turn to in times of trouble. Ritual, magic, and ceremony of three types, compassion, destructive, and lust are very important, but are basically more like meditation, as they aren't ACTUALLY classical magic like in Witchcraft. Holy book = The Satanic Bible.

The chart I have on my wall has lots of colorful strings and pins and labels.
It starts somewhere on the bottom left with a picture of a rock. The first god. The sun is above the rock. It goes from there, and then there are lots of branches and branches. Closing into the right hand side, you have religions like Islam, Mormon, Wicca, Scientology, Pastafarianism, and Cowism.

No reaction in any respect. the guy who commits blaspheme is a lot adequate of action and there is not any want to react for his action as FREEDOM of expression and perspectives could receive the precise priority. Am no longer contained in the game of believer and non-believer as both the suggestions are incorrect. As a thoughts your alternatives are worried : a million) Shake and shatter my faith : If my faith shatters and could be shaken through some action through somebody else, so its extra efficient to no longer have that faith in first position. in basic terms through uttering some words or depicting something adverse to my faith will reason harm then its extra efficient tobe destroyed truly following it blindly. 2) advance my faith : Its a self-convenience. easily, no conception is everlasting. easily all believers are deep down doubters. yet Mass hysteria works. Religions are part of mass hysteria. Mass by no potential own mind. 3) Make extra curious to confirm about faith : thousands of years of religion and nonetheless humanity is in discomfort and strife. in spite of convenience is extra really because of technology which more desirable in very last 2 hundred years. there are a form of issues make me curios than faith which has rotten concepts and ideology. 4) something else : there is conspiracy in each and every religions to preserve their vested pastimes. evidently human suggestions is done of questions which no relegions have solutions. so that they tactfully, made it blasphemous to ask adverse to their beliefs. understand the game thats it. after all, what's pastimes you in religions ?

Not that easy sorry.
Less so since MANY faiths have "creation myths" and so will all claim to be the older.
Even those who share large hunks of the same sacred books - like the Abrahambic faiths.
