There's a similar map video that shows the movements of various written language families.  It's pretty fascinating.

It's a shame this map doesn't show Judaism in the context of the other middle eastern religions it sprang from and of which it was a contemporary.  That family of religions represents a tenuous continuity similar to very early Hinduism's continuity, I think.

Animation of the "common descent" of religions set to Malignant Narcissism by Rush. The creator is BobbysBrane who has a pretty cool website to poke around on with other videos and interesting stuff. Here's the videos page (see below).

Warner Music Group has this region blocked all over the place. Here's a ProxFree link that will work. It will  automatically pick a proxy close to you that will likely be blocked so simply change the "IP Address Location" drop down box to a different host in another country until the page/video loads. I almost always use the Netherlands proxy because nothing ever seems to be region blocked there, at least when it comes to music.

"You know what uranium is, right? It's this thing called nuclear weapons. And other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium. Including some bad things. But nobody talks about that."

So maybe Rush thinks religion is a malignant narcissism. That's pretty much how I see religion too.
