That sound more like Maria that gave birth to Jesus Christ with no man slept with her.  The nati ...



The concept of immaculate birth is not Christian only; apparently the backward Chinese believe their mythical "Yellow Emperor" was borne to a woman who had never had intercourse. Although the Yellow Emperor never existed, the Chinese believe their ancestors were born ca. 4800 years ago by a virgin.

If you suffer from an inferiority complex and feel you need to rehash all the supposedly "great" things that came from China, you will exhaust yourself very quickly.

You introduced paper money, yes; big deal: this happened a while ago. But money was used in the West far longer than paper money. The first money was little round pebbles, then minted metal pieces. As for the usefulness of paper: it was relative. The West had had papyrus since some 2500 years before you came up with paper. There was not such a big difference between the two; today's paper is not the same paper that your ancestors made from leaves, bamboo, old clothes. Modern paper is a purely Western creation.

And please, don't brag about numbers and maths. Without the ancient Greeks you wouldn't know algebra. The historic Huaxia may have had some discoveries in maths of their own but when they transitioned to their new nationality of being "Chinese" their first emperor destroyed all records and the Chinese had to borrow maths from anyone who shared their knowledge with them.

The truth hurts huh. The Anglo western red like you and Dusty like claims that  you guys invented everything on this planet including fire and water . I am intelligent and  been educated in US for many years but I am not allowed the Anglo teacher or media to Brain washed me. Greece was never invented Algebra , it's was an Egyptian who also invent the Geometry as well and that how they builted the Great Paramid  and others monument. Greece is very backwardness civilization because they superstition and still today and that how they end up being biggest looser  and bankrupt country in the world. Just like I said snake man any civilization that close the door to the world will end up being left behind and backwardness. And the different between Chinese and westerners is that Chinese can learns from our mistakes,  and from others, while you guys are stubborn, ignorant, arrogant and that why heading down hill.

No, you got a tonne of wrong again, Tubo Pope.

Algebra was not "invented" by a single man. The Greeks simply developed modern maths the most at that time, and later generations of mathematicians elsewhere developed it further. Geometry is a very important part of Greek maths. Egyptians and Greeks were soulmates so it stands to reason they taught each other.

By the way, I am not red. I have an aversion to the colour "red" because it is associated with blood and communist violence.

Post II to Tubo Pope:

Please, don't be overly complacent. If you are "intelligent" I would know that and you would not have to mention it.

But so far you have not shown much evidence to prove that.

Post II to Tubo Pope:

Don't talk about Greece and its civilisation; you enjoy its contributions to your lifestyle far too much. The Greeks are far less superstitious than yourself or the top echelon of the C.P.C. BUt the Greeks after a history longer than yours and fuller with contributions to world civilisation are, understandably, a little tired of always leading the world. TOday the Chinese only know Greek maths, Greek Ouzo, Greek Olympics and Greek democracy without understanding the spirit of the Greek people.

The filter is already clogged with rebuttals of Tubo Pope's silly and self-glorifying replies...
