According to the Bible: A dictionary defines religion as "a set ofbeliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe,especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agencyor agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances,and often containing a moral code gove…rning the conduct of humanaffairs." It further defines it as "something one believes in andfollows devotedly; a point or matter of ethics or conscience." TheGenesis account of the Garden of Eden is one of the most widelyknown accounts in the Bible. In this account, we find that Jehovahplaced Adam and his wife, Eve in the garden, and provided them witha set of standards. These were simple commands. One well-known lawwas that there was a restriction against eating from one particulartree.-(Genesis 2:17) Another simple command was to populate andsubdue the earth (Genesis 1:28) Whether Adam and Eve performed anyspecific rituals, the Bible does not say, but they most certainlyhad to believe in God, and obey him. This, by definition, wouldconstitute a religion. A few years later, we read in Genesis 4:2-4,Adam's sons, Cain and Abel, both made sacrifices to God. Cain's wasan offering of crops from his garden, and Abel's was an animalsacrifice. This also would constitute an act of religion. So rightfrom man's early start, religion has been in existence.

Answer . Religion started almost as soon as humans appearred on this earth. Religion started off as a way to explain things that could not be explained by the limited knowledge that the early people had; and example would be lightning, which meant that the god or gods were not pleased.. Answer. … Religion was started by the Cro-Magnons (who also started culture) about 40,000 years ago . Cro-Magnons are early Homo sapiens.. When humans finally started writing (c 3100-3500 BC) in the middle-east there was religion already. Mostly it was gods of nature i.e. sun god, moon god, wind god, etc. The Hebrews seemingly came up with the uni-god concept around 1000 to 500 BC probably in Babylon. Paul is probably responsible for the start of Christianity, he changed the Hebrew message which Jesus was preaching, but it didn't really get going until the 300's AD, well after his death. (MORE)
Mysticism has been around since the dawn of time. However, if you're referring to Catholicism, it was started by Jesus Christ and established by St. Peter the Apostle shortly after Christ's Ascension.
The First records of any type of religious scripture or writingswere by the Sumarian People who lived in the area today known asIraq more than 10 thousand years ago. Their civilization worshipedgods from the sky who came from a different world. Their historystates that the gods came and conceaved ch…ildren with the women ofearth, and the women had given birth to half god half humanchildren (Simularly to the demigods of roman and greek beliefs) Itis believed that the Book of Genesis is based off of the 7 tabletsof creation written by the Sumarian People describing the creationof the world with simular scriptures such as "The gods took fromman and gave the seed onto the women of earth, from which new lifewould come. in the image of god." Religion in its true sence of the word means when man started to dorepititious acts based on spiritual perception to save himself oranother, and well that answer is easy. As soon as a man relizes there is hoplessness, a man seeks his ownremedy, often times without asking who what when or where. But dear friend you mean more than just that word, you mean "Godand Stuff"... That my dear friend ever was, there was no begining, from allthings came out of Him, all I can do is point you to Him. (points) Another answer: Religion is a form of worship. It includes a systemof religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices; these may bepersonal, or they may be advocated by an organization. Usuallyreligion involves belief in God or in a number of gods; or ittreats humans, objects, desires, or forces as objects of worship.Much religion is based on human study of nature; there is alsorevealed religion. Much of the religious practices today wasstarted in ancient Babylon after the flood of Noah's day. Fromthere it spread to the four corners of the earth. Professor MorrisJastrow., in his work The Religion of Babylonia and Assyria (1898,pp.669-701), says regarding this: " In the ancient world, prior tothe rise of Christianity, Egypt, Persia, and Greece felt theinfluence of the Babylonian religion. Religious doctrines thatoriginated in Babylon, such as the immortality of the soul,hellfire, and the worship of triune gods, are shared by virtuallyall religions. Jesus instituted true Christianity, a way of lifebased on love. In it, all thoughts and actions are to harmonizewith God's will, for the purpose of bringing honor and glory to hisname. (Matthew 22:37-39; Hebrews 10:7) Behind Jesus teaching onthis way of life was his Father Jehovah. (MORE)
When God created the world and humans came in, people started tobelive in different things and different theories ( Examples:Christian, Catholic, etc ). Answer: One thing that researchers agree upon is that mankind has alwaysbelieved in a Higher Power. Archaeology has shown that no ancientsociety… ever existed that did not believe in the supernatural. Based upon a massive worldwide study of the most ancientinscriptions and the earliest levels of civilization, Dr. WilhelmSchmidt (in his twelve-volume Der Ursprung Der Gottesidee)concluded that the original belief was monotheistic. It was asimple belief in the Creator (Sky-Father) with no imagery of anykind. It gave way relatively quickly to polytheism and idolatry,but its traces could still be seen by the careful researcher, justas (for example) Proto-Indo European has left indelible markswithin the later languages. Other traditions also are traceableworldwide, such as the religious significance of the number seven,and the immortality of the soul. Sources: Albright, "From the Stone Age," p.170; and J.A.

Religion started from the basic fear of death or the end of one's existence. Religion became a form of comfort, that there is something to look forward to after death.. Religion later became a convenient tool for establishing Political control over the fanatical followers. Religion was then used as… a political tool to establish social structures and behaviors that glorified leaders as earthly Gods or emissaries of an invisible heavenly master. (MORE)
As Abraham wife Sarah was baron Ishmael was then born throughHagger the slave . Additional Answer: . Hagar was more than just the female handmaid or as you put it"slave" of Sarah, she is historically known to be an Egyptainprincess and daughter of a pharaoh. Please take note of thefollowing:-) -…In Rabbinical Literature: . According to the Midrash (Gen. R. xlv.), Hagar was the daughter ofPharaoh, who, seeing what great miracles God had done for Sarah'ssake (Gen. xii. 17), said: "It is better for Hagar to be a slave inSarah's house than mistress in her own." _ It is then clear from this Rabbinical Literature thatPrincess Hagar was of a Kingly line and not just of any one as tosay" a slave," but of a Pharaoh father, king of Egypt! It must alsomean that her son Ismael must have gone on to become a king in hisown right, for the scripture clearly says he begot twelve princesand goes on to name each prince. (MORE)
Religion started before recorded history began. It was not until written records began (in Sumeria, Egypt, and China) that the various beliefs and customs were transcribed into a clearer form. However, statues and other icons exist that show some of the forms that religion took. Religions and Ques…tions In my opinion, religion was a manifestation of hope, and used to answer questions that seemed to be impossible to answer. Whether the question is "what is lightning?" asked by cavemen, or "what happens when we die?" (still debated today), the hope of a higher power to save one from uncertainty, to provide the answers, is also the beginning of religion. The Bible and Man Viewing it from the Bible account, religion would have started as soon as God created an intelligent being. That 'being' would know his Maker, and would give his Creator 'thanks' and would 'obey' his Maker. This is what 'religion' from the Bible's angle is all about. According to the Bible, angels were created long before mankind was created. They would have worshiped their Maker by thanking him and giving him obedience. Therefore religion really started up in heaven, in the spirit realm. As long as intelligent creatures were obedient, religions didn't need to be 'named'. On Earth, religion would have started right after Adam was given life as a living being. He was given instructions to follow. Unfortunately over the years, people started 'disobeying' their Creators instructions. And religions started to 'name themselves'. Sometimes they named their religion after a 'person' (ie Lutherans) Others just like to be called after Jesus, they call themselves 'Christians'. One religion has actually named itself by placing God's most holy personal name upon themselves. This is quite unique. God's name is Jehovah, and they call themselves 'Jehovah's Witnesses'. I guess the angels are all witnesses of Jehovah too. There are also some who worship Satan, the enemy of Jehovah. That religion would have started right after Satan disobeyed Jehovah, and others started to obey Satan instead. Probably right after the Garden of Eden. (MORE)
Have Faith In what you're doing! Answer: Calling yourself a religion and being a certified religion with the legal benefits are two separate things. Most jurisdictions have established procedures for establishing corporations and non-profit organizations. Religion would fall into this tpe of cate…gory.

For religion specifically, most jurisdictions require some deity to be specified. The exception is Bddhit based religion were the deity requirement is waived (?) (MORE)
Ishmael is the son of Abraham and Hagar, Sarah's maidservant. He also had to live in a desert with his mother because Sarah didn't want them to be with them especially after she just conceived her own son, Isaac.

Every book has to start somehow. Moby Dick starts with the story teller introducing himself with, "Call me Ishmael". It is a distinctive and friendly opening line and I believe the name is not used anywhere else in the remainder of the book. Also, the book was written over 150 years ago in a time wh…en literacy was not high and the story tellers art was a much more demanding job for that very reason. The authors of Moby Dick, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and even Frankenstein, place great effort and emphasis into describing a view from a certain perspective or at a certain time of year, or why something is done the way it is done for the benefit of the reader. Don't waste your time challenging it, the book is a classic, sit back, relax and enjoy reading it. (MORE)
In Europe the religions was very varied. But most of it was centered around CHristianity. That is until King Henry wanted to divore his wife, Catherine of Aragon. He made the Church of England, so from that time on, England has its very own religion. No one really knows how religion started. I thin…k it is when Jesus was born and he spread words about God and that became CHristianity. (MORE)

The following is an attempt to reconcile and combine all previous contributions into a cohesive and non-contradictory response. There is no clear agreement on when religions began. Many say that it began with Adam and Eve, the first man and woman by Judeo-Christian-Islamic teaching. Some say that… it began even before then. What it boils down to is what the individual believes. The fact is that there is no clear evidence to link religious thought with any date. What is generally accepted is that as long as there have been humans, there has been some system or sort of religious belief. Archaeological evidence seems to support this. It is not just fact or faith in history or prehistory. Modern evidence supports this as well. It has been demonstrated with the contributions to this question. In the face of the unanswerable, modern man seeks to support answers with religion. Consider that science itself is a form of religious thought. Science fits the definition of religion as well as any known current or past religion. Religion thinking is composed of three elements. The first element is "a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe." Science does this. The religion of science is in fact comprised of a set of beliefs that have developed over the past one to two thousand years. The roots of science perhaps go back much further than that. Some of the earliest forms of scientific thought are traced back to Socrates and Aristotle. Consider that the word "atom" finds its roots in ancient Greek philosophy. The second element of religious thought involves "devotional and ritual observances." Science does this also. Consider scientific method, the process by which any "new" knowledge can be collectively accepted as being factual and reality based. For this to happen, the following must occur (raise your hand if this sounds familiar): observation, hypothesis, experimentation, and theory. One cannot jump from step one to from observation to theory without first passing through the second and third hoop. One set of accepted rituals for getting from point A to point B in the string of scientific method is as follows: . Develop a question . Gather information . Develop an hypothesis . Experimentation . Data analysis . Interpretation or conclusions . Publish findings . Independent experimentation (with repeated results) The third element of religion is that it is bound by "a moral code" that directs or controls "the conduct of human affairs." Nothing could be more internationally true for science, scientific thinking, and scientists themselves. Nearly every nation of the world has their own internationally recognized National Academy of Science. Every school of scientific thought has a plethora of organizations behind, beneath, and over it to direct and control the forwarding of its particular agenda. Every museum, every university, every "think tank" has some governing body that directs all discussion of Minutia Academia Scientifica. The Vatican itself can only dream of having such a lock on the direction of dogma and doctrine within its own organization. One final element of religion is that starting dates are difficult (impossible in most cases) to pin down. Few churches can do what organizations like the Church of Scientology can do (and I do not propose that science and Scientology are synonymous-I offer only an example here), which was proposed (officially) with the publication of Diantetics in May 1950, and the founding of the church in 1954. Few other organized religions can nail down their founding date with any such degree of accuracy. Most can at best give ballpark estimates ranging from a few hundred to several thousand years. Much like science, they have developed over time. Much like science, they were not invented. Much like science, followers are taught by those who came before. Much like science, religion (not spirituality which is the seed of religion) is a convention of Man. Much like science, religion can be used for good or evil, it is wholly dependent upon the hand that wields it. Religion, science, what ever term is used to label it, any attempt to reconcile Man with the universe of which he is part, is likely as old as Man himself. Any use of the term "Man" is intended to be solely generic and by no means should it be inferred to be gender discriminatory. "Elements of religion, per a definition of "Religion." (MORE)
No one knows for sure, but my bet is that it emerged from Fear. To primitive humans, the world probably didn't make a lot of sense, and it was very dangerous. So people looked for ways to predict the future and later, to control it. Imagining a "super-being" who was manipulating the world was Step… One. (Even an evil superbeing is better than accepting the thought that the universe is random.) Finding a way to convince or compel this superbeing to act benevolently was Step Two. And just as astrology led to astronomy, these primitive impulses led to faith -- or rather, faiths. Human communities need to evolve to the point where they can support some members who think about faith and teach it to the rest of the tribe. Some of these people will take advantage of their tribe-mates, some will be delusional, and some will be more like philosophers, pursuing Truth for its own sake. The resulting "products" compete; that which seems best able to explain "the way things are" (and thus offer the most accurate predictions) will survive to enter the next competition. (MORE)
Ishmael was the son of Abraham and his concubine, Haggar. Ishmael led his people, the Ishmaelites to Cannan.
They went to Kamator because they thought that it was far from Mattru Jong, and they will be saved from the rebel.

The first known activities that seem to be related to religion and/or spirituality (or more specifically, attention paid to an individual after his/her death) can be traced back as far as 60,000 years ago, and easily more. Religious activities are suspected to be even older, possibly beginning as fa…r as 300,000 years ago. At that time, skeletons of Cro-Magnan man, Neanderthals, and eary Homo Sapiens were found neatly buried underground with crude, handmade tools laid nearby. It is unclear what started this trend, but it is well-documented that it occured. There are artifacts and other such evidence that idol worship (cause unknown) dominated the many years after, until the rise of the Abrahamic religions that follow the partiarch Abraham, who, according to legend and certain religious texts (including the Holy Bible and the Qu'ran), fathered the beginnings of Isreal. According to Judeo-Christian belief, he also copied down the word of God into the five books that compose the Torah (the first five of the Bible; also the basis of Jewish Law). To summarize: The earliest explanations for religions and/or religious activity can likely be attributed to the earliest intelligent considerations for the unknown of death. The departed were first placed in the ground to prevent their use as food for scavengers; then they were placed in the care of idols and/or living people who assumed their thrones under pretense of supernatural ability or preference. Much more recently, religions find their origin by claims of the word of God (i.e. divine inspiration). The reasoning for such would be specific to each religion. But as a general rule, 'obedience' should suffice (whether to a leader, god, or God). (MORE)

they are Muslims who believe Imamat is one pf pillars of Islam. Shia and Sunni have mostly same beliefs and both believe in fundamental beliefs of Islam. Today there is up to 260 sects in Islam that are in two main categories of shia and sunni. the conflict of shia and sunni has been always amp…lified by world Imperialism to prevent Islam from gaining power. Shia believes in Allah, prophet and all fundamentals of Islam. Shia pray 5 times a day but usually do the 2, 3 and 4, 5 pray together and so may seem they do only 3 pray a day. there is some differences in details of pray like genuflect (for shia should be on a stone or part of earth and for sunni on carpet or floor ). shia believe after death of prophet God selected the successive for prophet who is the political leader of Muslim community and people can not and does not the right to selected it. Shia believes the Caliph (Representative of God in earth) is selected only by God and can not be selected by people because God said in Koran: "Indeed, I will make upon the earth a successive authority" (Quran 2:30) or "O David! We did indeed make thee a vicegerent on earth" (Quran 38:26) also other verses. Shia believes such verses means only God can select an Islamic political leader (Caliph). In Shia Islam Caliphs after prophet are 12 Imams and all of them are the same and have no mistake and have the knowledge of everything (not absolute knowledge like knowledge of God) and they hear all sayings and even thinks of all humans after even after their death by permission of God and they are intermediates between God and human Shia Muslims always support them and forgive their lives for them. Shia Muslims do not consider selection of Abubakr as Caliph by people valid because God did not select him. They believe God ordered prophet to declare people that Ali is selected as successor of prophet and prophet did this mission many times during his prophet-hood and mainly in Ghadir event after last Hajj of his life at a 3-4 hour speech in front of 120,000 Muslims at Ghadir in hot desert after 2 days stop of long caravan for gathering and 3 days after speech for congratulations and homage of Muslims to Ali. Islam at that time had high power in world and Some companions had high interest in leadership position after prophet. Muslims knew that it is the final Hajj of prophet (predicted by prophet) and were going along with prophet to hear what prophet says at end of his life. Shia believes Ghadir event is the most important event of Islam and is mentioned in Koran in many verses like "Today" (Ø§ÙÙÙÙ ) in verse 5:3 of Quran is the day of Ghadir. Or Verse 5:67 (O Messenger! proclaim the (message) which hath been sent to thee from thy Lord. If thou didst not, thou wouldst not have fulfilled and proclaimed His mission. And Allah will defend thee from men (who mean mischief). For Allah guideth not those who reject Faith) is revealed at Ghadir day and is about declaring political leadership of Ali after prophet. Both Sunni and Shia Muslims accept happening of Ghadir event But different interpret. Some Sunni writers tried to reject the event of Ghadir as declare of leadership of Ali and said at Ghadir prophet only wanted to say Ali is my friend and no one should bother him. Ali had 3 different missions to Yemen by prophet during 10 years and in 2 of them some companions of prophet had some conflicts with Ali and and prophet said some sayings about Ali to solve conflicts and some sunni writers have mixed stories of missions of Ali to Yemen with story of Ghadir to prove Ghadir event is not about Leadership of Ali and is not important. Shia scholars believe some Sunni writers have changed and deviated historical evidences about political leadership of Ali in old historical books and republished them to destroy evidences of leadership of Ali from old Sunni books. The famous Shia book Al-Ghadir (Ø§ÙØºØ¯ÙØ±) by Allameh Amini is a collection of evidences and proofs for Ghadir Events written after referring to 100,000 Sunni books and full reading of 10,000 sunny books. Allameh Amini is a famous Shia scholar and spent 40 years of his life in travelling to access original old Sunni books in libraries in different countries to write this 20 volume book only from Sunni books and not using any Shia book. Some Sunni scholars tried to reply this book but then said if we want to reply this book we should first destroy all books of ourselves. Shia doctrine have root in Karbala tragedy. When tragedy of Karbala happened most of Iranians understood there is two different kinds of Islam and after happening of Karbala tragedy most of Iranians became followers of "Ahl al-Bayt" and forgive their lives for them like what they did in Iranian Revolution and Iran-Iraq War. Shia Muslims have at least 120,000 Hadith (saying) from The Fourteen Infallibles that is the base of Shia Islam along with Quran. Shia believes according to " Hadith of the two weighty things" The Fourteen Infallibles are the only valid interpreters of Quran and sayings of them are from God because they are Representative of God in earth and they do not say anything from themselves. Shia believes 12th of them (Mahdi) is alive and because people have killed all 11 Imams before him, he is in hide like Jesus and will come out of hide toghether with Jesus when people become ready and want to accept his leadership. All 11 Imams have been killed and during their life thy all have been in prison or under hard control of government to not have any political action. They never had enough serious followers to can get political power. Among them only the sixth Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq was relatively free in his life to have only scientific activities (but banned from any political action) and so only he is known in west because he established university and had students from all over the world. Westerns know him as a polymath: an astronomer, alchemist, Imam, Islamic scholar, Islamic theologian, writer, philosopher, physician, physicist and scientist. He was also the teacher of the famous chemist, JÄbir ibn HayyÄn (Geber), and of AbÅ« á¸¤anÄ«fa, the founder of the Hanafi school of Sunni Islamic jurisprudence. He never wanted be a famous man and only shared his knowledge with who wanted to learn. Some researchers consider his teachings the root cause of renaissance. Sunni Muslims also accept Mahdi and his worldwide leadership as Caliph of God in earth at end of world. There is a famous Hadith from prophet Muhammad (PBUH) that Mahdi at hide is like sun behind cloud, he is hidden from people but people receive his benefits. Shia Muslims say some faithful believers have connection with Mahdi and use his knowledge. Shia Muslims believe that it is proved at least 1000 persons have had connection and talk with Mahdi during his hide period but Any one having relation with Mahdi keep it and does not declare it in public until is alive.
