    Hinduism is often considered the oldest existing religion still practiced today. While this may be true, it’s important to note that Hinduism does not have any particular founder or a single text, but instead combines several ancient traditions and beliefs. The oldest scripture of Hinduism is the Rig Veda, which is believed to be about 3,500 years old. However, archaeologists have found bull and cow motifs, which are sacred animals in Hinduism, dating back to around 7,000 BCE during a time when an ancient civilization inhabited the area near the Indus River. Today, Hinduism is practiced by millions of people around the world, but primarily in India and the surrounding countries.

    there’s no dubt that hinduism is the oldest religion historians found evidence of. there are even traces of hinduism teachings in newer religions.
    by definition, humanitarian, doesn’t qualify as a religion.

Culture

Most religions teach us about the existence of a sovereign God - the creator of everything. Some religions teach us the way of life and the practical ways to handle life and people alike. The culture of a certain place can also be based in the set of beliefs and practices set by its religion. The early civilisations show us that people wondered about creation so they created images and worship them. Religion is placed in the hearts of men but the paradigm shift in culture has melted the faith in human's heart. You can name all religions you know while not being a follower of any devotion and it is still culturally acceptable.
