I guess it just depends on how believable and convincing the the person or group is who is sharing their beliefs. That is a really good question though and I'll be sure to post if I come up with anything better than what

maybe there are multiple reasons that they die out.
lots get taken up in invasions and such(mayan,druid)..loads are killed of by opposing religons that disagree with there ethics etc..lots are forced to go underground because of persecution(wiccan etc),
many teach a teaching that is good and the good people will follow these(buhddism,hindu,christianity)and many are brainwashed into believing new religons(raelians(spelling?)scientology)
i think that the religions that teach forgiveness mainly prosper because of there leaning towards looking after those that sometimes cant look after themselves,treating others as you wish to be treated and generally being a good all round person..because everybody knows that sometimes you wont get through this journey we all call life without the help of some one else..and without you helping some some one else and feeling your karma/chi/moral feel better for it..IMO..good post DG

Money and greed change things.

Except for the Australian Aboriginals living in dreamtime, 40,000 years strong.

Because Christians kill them?

Because some are conducive to change. If you can't resist change, then you've either gotta do something about it, or die. Or, as the jews did in Rome, be small enough and nice enough that no one cares.

Politics as well. Native Americans had it good until we gave 'em diseases. Sometimes, things just happen, and it sucks if you're on the wrong end of it.
