About This Quiz

Religion may have begun when humanity first harnessed fire. It may have started the first time humans noticed the movement of the heavenly bodies. It may have started the first time someone was terribly injured but recovered miraculously. No one knows for sure where religion came from, but what we can say for sure is that beliefs have changed a lot over the thousands of years they've been around. While most major religions practiced today are at least a thousand years old, few of the truly ancient sects of religions remain, and those that do are very different from what they were thousands of years ago.

For a start, technological advances coupled with the spread of certain monotheistic religions at just the right time to aid in their spreading to all four corners of the Earth. For another, some religions were very much tied to specific nations or cultures which no longer exist. It's hard to worship a living god, after all, if a conquering neighboring nation captures that god.

If one believes in past lives, then one has to wonder who one was in various ages. If you lived in some form in the ancient world, what religion did you follow? Who or what did you worship? Is that religion something lost to history or is it still around today? To find out the answers, take this quiz! We will tell you!
