    Hinduism or another local religion but seriously you must have no knowledge of history at all if you think Judaism is even close to the oldest religion. Judaism has its roots in the early Iron age at the earliest but faiths like Hinduism have their foundations in the time that the Abrahamic holy books say the earth and universe were created around 6000 years ago or even earlier

    Well, the first humans were around 20:000 years ago so the probably believed in some sort of sun/cloud/rain/death god but there isn't any evidence because all the other religions took over, or nobody wrote it down, so we don't now

    Can tell you for sure how ever that Zoarastrian ( don't know how to write it ) or The Egyptian religion are like 2000 years older than Christianity

  • Judaism is not the oldest religion. The oldest is a form of folklore/ idol worship religion.

    Both Christianity (around 200 ad) and Islam (around 650 ad) are religions. Judaism is only about 2600 years old. There are many much older

    Buddhism is about 2600 years old

    Hinduism is about 7500 years old

    Forget religion we all believe in one god apart from Hinduism they believe in way of life, so its not a religion.

    But Hinduism is the oldest tradition still known today.

    Also before even being named paganism or anything, people would worship the sun and nature and other elements too. That would be your first form of religion.
