    interesting:

    East to west, north to south India is religiously driven and is controlled through religion and uneducated people in different sectors of life.

    Looking at the world history, there is not a nation which has been able to develop itself based on a religious mindset. Societies based on religion ultimately lead to dark ages or to religiously driven countries which start having internal conflicts as being seen throughout the world.

    Religions thrives on mob mentality and takes away individual powers and decision making. Which is wrong in a developing world, where majority of the population are not "world aware" and "ancient history aware", this also becomes a trap for local population to a "world view and historical view" which is defined by religious and political powers. Such countries often have political people/ parliaments who/which thrive on religious backgrounds/backing or represent some kind of religious view of society.

    Misrepresentation of facts in history of the world and India

    World has seen lot of facts that have been misrepresented in the world history and lot of wars have been fought due to this misrepresentation.
    Most of these facts were related with religious ideologies and thought processes.

    cultures which represent pictorial depiction often do not portray truth about ancient past, people, identities, etc. Pictorial depicts are always influenced by local thought process, local religion, person making the pictorial representation, prevalent thought process at that time period, fashion, liking, disliking of individuals, etc. True identities can be found through archaeology,different scientific methods, languages, etc. All human beings tend to connect with pictorial representation more easily than to archaeology,etc.

    Do you think pictorial depicts on artifacts does not represent archaeology ? It is very much a part of it.
    History is best when created, better when re-constructed and worst when invented.

    Greatest looters of ancient history could very well be elements driven by religious ideologies.

    Interesting part is what happens when an entire parliament of a country seems to represent religious ideologies?

    There is a difference is it a "made up artifact", or a "natural artifact"?

    natural artifact is mostly natural while there are also artifacts with enforced/influenced thought process such as religion.

    There might be lot of words which might hint towards an out of India origin of Brahmic religion, which might not be true because these words could have been coined/made at certain time in Indian history so that the Brahmic religions can incorporate/exist themselves into the outside influence. Religions (any religion) of the world has done a similar thing to make itself exist among majority outside influence. India with its open borders in ancient times saw a massive inflow/outflow of tribes at any given point of time.

    In 1947 India got its independence and more than 500 kingdoms joined together to make today's India, if we take A4 paper sized map of India and put 500 dots over the map of India, i am sure map will be full of dots which are few kilometers apart. In such a scenario there would have be adaptation of identities and a change of identities as a means of survival for religion and the kingdoms alike.

    Outside religious thought would be an opposed view due to various reasons.
    true, to an added information going into the past only leads to confusion and if not would be beneficial for any thesis or personal keen interest. History was the most boring topic for me to study ever. However, if I go by geography, then it was one piece of land and all religion existed there which get segregated by the movement of tectonic plates and thereby giving new names/changing names to different places with existence of life. So, it is again how the life on earth moulded the religion even. There is a personal history where I find Aryans as our ancerstors of grandpa's ancestors which afterwards were known as Jat adopting hinduism as identity.
