5000 Years: Beautiful Dynamic Map of the World’s 5 Major Religions

2 minutes of easily-accessible Saturday a.m. brain food.

I can watch this over and over.  So much history captured here I would like to know more about.

What percentage of any day’s  international headlines relate directly to this map?

What do you find fascinating or did you learn?

Me – ●Hinduism in South America,   ●The rapid and discontinuous spread of Judaism in Europe,  ●Googling Judaism and Caspian Sea – The Khazars, ●The intransigence of the Malay Peninsula to Hinduism, then, Buddhism.

Look, I get it’s simplistic and there is a lot going on within the broad colors, but the satellite view over time does give a little perspective, no?  Credit to Alex Kuzoian of, wait, Business Insider? WTH?  Anyway, great job.  It’s a keeper.

Religion:  Is there anything outside of loved ones we feel more deeply and personally connected to?  But as this video demonstrates, is there anything more outside of our personal control?  Religion is more a function of our tribe than ourselves, isn’t it?

We’ll see where the future will lead us and how these maps change over time.
