Religion
    Born in Egypt
    Ancient Egyptian religion
    Possibly the world's first major monotheistic religion
    Introduced by Amenhotep IV (later known as Akhetaten) circa 1400 BC
    Emphasized worship of the sun god
    AKA the Amarna Heresy
    The sun is not a god. It's a big ball of burning gas.
    Its followers were intolerant of other beliefs; defacing their temples and their incredible artwork and even forbidding the writing of the plural form of god.
    Believe it or not, they still have followers mostly among American new age types.
    Its heyday lasted only about twenty years.
    One supreme god does make more sense than a bunch of little gods running around with their own little dominion; the sea, farming, day, night, etc.
    Followers of Kemetic, the traditional Egyptian religion, were just as oppressive of the Atens. When the Aten patron Akhetaten died, the Kemetics destroyed the Aten temples and almost succeeded in removing them from the history by removing and forbidding references to them in the historical record.
    They taught that the pharaoh wasn't a god but just another man.
    Their god was loving, especially of the common people.
    They had some pretty decent art themselves.
    They didn't have any televangelists!
