How do you know that Jesus could not speak one word of Hebrew? Millions of Jews in the USA speak English every day, and when you meet one, you have no way of knowing whether he can speak Hebrew or not. Nor did Biblical chroniclers know whether Jesus could speak Hebrew or not, and were silent on that subject.

The general consensus of Biblical scholars is that Jesus spoke Aramaic as his every day language, almost certainly also could speak Hebrew, and probably some Greek. Than, like now, most men were bilingual, as they traveled and also engaged in commerce with other travelers.

By the way, you are right when you say that Europeans also do not have a religion of their own. Europeans and Africans alike adopted Asian religions, specifically Christianity and Islam. Both continents had numerous other religions (sometimes sects of each other's), prior to the introduction of Christianity and Islam.

Yes,in that case nobody has a way to know if he a jew or not and if he spoke aramaic or hebrew or both ?
Yes but maybe the reference for christians is the bible but it is not the only source of history for adept of other religions.

Anamism is already a form of religion,and by the way atheists think of their belief as a religion.

Anamist definition of Anamist in the Free Online Encyclopedia.

Wow, are people unaware that African people are the oldest civilization on the earth, and they had a deep religious and spiritual sense, long before Europeans were even colonized groups.
It's the same with American, people think American only had people AFTER Columbus, Indians were here so far and so long before Columbus ancestors were even born, and they had their religion and they were spiritual too.

The world did not start when white people started chronicling THEIR VERSION of data and proclaiming themselves as the masters of the world.

How did you come to the conclusion they didn't? Religions can die it, you know. Being colonized by religiously fervent people from elsewhere is a good way to make that happen.

First of all let me correct you. Christianity isn't a "white man's" religion, because the people who lived in Palestine were not white (using American definitions), and definitely not European. Secondly Christianity reached Ethiopia before it reached most parts of Europe. And thirdly Africans do have their own religions.

I can only speak about Zimbabwe as I lived there until the age of twenty; but at least in that part of Africa Animism is quite widespread, in spite of the efforts of 20th century missionaries.
