  2. My best suggestion is that you make a list of the various philosophies and religions that can be attributed to people on each continent you've named and then research them. For example, in Asia, there is/was Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, etc.

    Research them at http://www.google.com, as well as at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page
    At Wikipedia, there are usually sections at the bottom of each page for further references -- See also, References, External links. Be sure to take advantage of them, too.
