Interesting. I barely noticed much of Judaism, I thought it was more widespread?

Crazy how Christianity was pretty much imported to north and south America.

I wish I had a time machine and a sniper rifle.

I'm interested to know what's with the hinduism section in South America(Brazil maybe?).

Cool find Chula. Thanks.

It's not that large of a religion relatively speaking.

Yes, that's very interesting, Chula - a lot of information to take in. I didn't notice anything for atheism in Soviet Russia, so I think I might watch it one more time.

Here are some stats about world religions, a bit old but I don't suppose the proportions have changed much:-

Christianity: 954 million
Islam : 538 million
Hinduism: 524 million
Buddhism: 249 million
Judaism: 14 million

So Janszoon is right, statistically Judaism is really small. None the less, as H.G.Wells pointed out, it's very significant in terms of human evolution. According to him it was the first time in world history that a big cultural group were held together, not by the territory they owned, but by an idea. Their god didn't conquer countries, but he was there, in a book and in their heads. Maybe that' s why it's still counted as one of the big five today.

Again, the mind blower for me was how quickly the entire continents of North and South America found Jesus. Equal parts the Spanish Inquisition and the influx of European immigrants.

How different would the world be today if not for that?

^ Yes, also striking is how Christianity only turned up in California and Alaska at the end of the sequence.

^ Well, here in Mexico, our Sundays just wouldn't be the same:-
