How many religions came from America?

Is it evidence for or against religions if they came from America?

For instance Mormonism and Jehovah's Witnesses. Are there more? Scientology. Any more?

I would argue it is evidence against the religion because America has quite literally nothing the to do with the Bible. What other evidence flows from a religion coming from America?
Proverbs 18:17 The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.

The difference as I see it is that, at least for the most part, Native Americans don't seem to be interested in "exporting" their religions.

There are over 200 million Americans who call themselves Christians and they number about 1/4th of the world’s population. Yet, despite being the largest religion in the country, only around 25% of American's practice Christianity. There are numerous other religious groups that make up our vast nation but just how many Christian religions are really born out of this great nation? Is there any truth behind the popular belief that the creation of these religions was due to the pilgrims and their quest towards freedom in the New World? Let us take a look at some answers to those questions!
1. The Seventh Day Adventist Church
The Seventh-Day Adventist church was founded in 1844, however, the group didn't come into existence until 1863 after the United States declared war against Germany. In 1862, following the Battle of Stones River (or Murfreesboro), President Lincoln allowed Sabbath day observance to continue. The first church services were held on Saturday mornings and Sunday evenings.
2. Jehovah’s Witnesses
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that Christ died before God created mankind to redeem them. They do not celebrate birthdays, holidays, Christmas trees, Easter eggs, Valentine’s Day flowers, Halloween candy and fireworks. Some people have interpreted this belief to mean that all music should be avoided. However, the church does allow its members to listen to gospel, classical, jazz, heavy metal and rap music.
3. The Unification Church
