Two examples of the oldest religions practiced are Hinduism and Buddhism. Hinduism and Buddhism are part of Indian religion; a religion so diverse and rich and one that can be dated back many years ago.

In this essay William Lutz would be considered someone who fakes history for the government like in the Ministry of truth, to please the government. Although this essay states there was blood on their shirts during that time, individuals continue to say, “I was wrong” and “No one died in Tiananmen Square”. No one denies this and they protect the government in results of fear. They are being forced to lie and say the army did not hurt anyone nor killed anyone.

The Jagannath Temple – Puri, India Hinduism is neither a polytheistic nor a pagan religion – unlike the Roman religion existing at the time of Jesus – but rather a monotheistic religion. Hinduism established a monotheistic religion tens of thousands of years ago. The many manifestations of God – including Ganesha, the Elephant God, and Hanuman, the Monkey God – are merely expressions of one Supreme Being – representations of a single Divine Entity. The teachings of Hinduism can be traced back to the Vedas which go back hundreds of thousands of years ago. Hinduism already existed long before Krishna – who lived 5,000 years ago – and even existed before Rama – who lived 10,000 years ago.
Buddhism today is the fourth largest religion on earth, with over 520 million followers across the globe, which is seven percent of the world’s population.

Buddhism began to be blamed for the political and social problems of Chinese society. An additional document, such as a graph, that demonstrates actual numbers of Buddhist converts of this time period would help determine if the given documents’ author’s statements about Buddhism were accurate.
While Chinese initially accepted Buddhism and defended its policies, over the centuries others increasingly scrutinized Buddhism’s absence from past texts and used it as a scapegoat for political and social problems. When there was no empire to enforce laws, Buddhism gained popularity, but after imperial authority reemerged, Buddhism faced mounting opposition. An additional document that shows the actual numbers of converts to Buddhism during this time, preferably in a graph, would be useful in determining whether or not the worries of the authors in documents against Buddhism were grounded. For a few centuries after arriving in China, Chinese defended and supported Buddhism. Zhi Dun praised Buddhism as providing a path to nirvana, though as an upper class scholar who probably did not personally feel threatened by invading nomads, his testimony does not necessarily reflect the danger lower classes likely felt.
