History of Religion Map

This is a neat animation showing the geographic domains of religion over time since the formation of the oldest of the world's major religions, Hinduism.

Animations like this really give the impression of institutions like religion or empire as being an amoeba-like phenomenon that almost has a collective mind of its own... moving, expanding, devouring each other, learning and adapting to the changing situation.
