Judaism and Hinduism have many things in common. Both ancient religions believe in a higher power and both began as being specific to a certain region before later expanding in the late 19th century, with Judaism originating in Egypt and Hinduism taking its roots in India. With that being said, there are also several differences between the two religions.

Critical Thinking Paper: Buddhism Origin: How did humanity and the universe come into existence? When viewing humanity and the universe and how it comes into existence, in Buddhism, they believe “in the Universe rather than for any creator being or personal God” (Weider & Gutierrez, 2014. pg. 63).

Christianity and Buddhism have many things similar on how in both religions their followers want to reach peace and happiness causing them to be nicer.
