Nitpick: The way I learnt to use the words, Hinduism "begins" sometime in the second half of the last millennium BC, developing out of what is known as "Vedism" or "Vedic religion". But as old religions goes, all these (in their known forms) are alot younger than Egyptian and Sumero-Akkadian polytheism. Which's attested stages undoubtedly comes pretty late in the history of human religious belief.
