How do you define "newer" religions?
Modern religions is how I define "newer" religions.
You'll need to give some time frames here. What's "newer" to some would be "always" to others, and vice versa.
Modern religions include Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Most people who claim any religion claim one of these.
Religions that are no longer practiced sometimes used human or animal or animal sacrifices to appease the gods.
maybe we ought to define "religion". "modern religion" is an ill-defined term.
How about the religions of today, as newer religions. Or the religions that are coming about every day. What do know about the differences from the older religions that have been around for centuries? And how are they a like?
As Bobpursley suggested, we ought to define "religion."
A Google search for new religions yielded many different sites and many different interpretations of this term.
Please define what you mean by "newer religions" and post some examples. We'll try to help you if we know what you are supposed to compare.
