    Why most religions come from asia?...Is it something to do with asia being more populated or is it hint that moral values first evolved in asia?

      More likely to do with the fact that most people in the world come from Asia and moved out to populate the rest of the world.
      Nothing to do with moral values at all.

      The silk road, a trade route between china, africa and (at the time) the west. It's been said that almost all the religions, from asia to europe, are a result of the upanishads. The upanishads are some of the oldest collected works on earth, predating christianity easily by 3,000 years or so. If the bible is 2,000 years old, the upanishads are closer to 5,000 years old.

        @mis can be .....silk route connected right from india to saudi ....and Persia-India are land of biggest theological thinkers...veda, upanishads are product of them...India , china had established kingdoms and where huge economies...so influence on them might have been on most part of world of those era...

          Monks from the ch'an and tebetan disciplines, as well as many other sects, went on annual pilgrimages. It is quite possible that these monks came in contact with early middle easterners.

            @mis also there was interaction between ancient India , ancient china , ancient egypt...these interactions was for business purpose in most times , but there might have been theological as well as culture exchanges too...

              The chinese were very open to outside cultures, until the era of the great disappointment, circa; 17th century onward, until about the middle of the 20th century.

      @kangaroo m talking about present day dominating religions...not about which is oldest...oldest would be obviously from africa and australia...religion was invented by humans so as soon as humans thought of some kind of external power , they might have invented some form of worshipping structure , rituals etc...

        @pisean282311,

        This still relates to your OP, why would the Australian Dream time not come from Asia? It is also still around and is still present today.

          @kangaroo ya agreed...but humans came from australia to asia as per out of africa theory....so chances of religion coming from asia to australia is difficult......i need to rephrase question why is present dominating religions like abhrahmic religions and hinduism etc come from asia?

            May be because Asians are better at deception!

      Hindu is the world's oldest Religion, you could say most religions branched off Hinduism. Before then, Mankind started from Africa from a, so called Adam and Eve (a non religious couple)
