To answer your question about the first religion I have to state what I believe religion to be. Religion is an organised or structured expression of faith which flows from a believe in a higher being. Therefore, the question that should be posed is; when was the first belief in a higher being expressed by humanity. The San (Bushmen) are, with the aborigines the world's first people. It is in their culture that we found the first expressions of a belief in a higher being. If you want more information visit the website included in this message.
