You probably do not know, a Chinese mathematician found Pi to be 3.1415926 centuries before Europe, for one example. What you see is the result of the last Chinese Dynasty - the Ching. It was a minority led dynasty and it was against science. This was why China was left behind in the last several hundreds of years.

Interesting: I hope you are right that it's just culture.  But, for argument's sake, let us say that there was a genetic weakness.  In my humble opinion, there is no shame in admitting this, if it was true; rather, I think the shame would be in not trying to improve the problem.  To improve, one must first acknowledge a problem.  The status of an individual, people, and nation is relative: if the only people in the world were Chinese and Africans, then Chinese would be considered geniuses.  But let's say a highly advanced people were discovered on Europa, a moon of Jupiter.  Then in this case, all humans would be considered very unintelligent in comparison.  So, I think the honor comes in the desire to improve without end, not in denying ones relative rank in a hierarchy of known peoples.  But again, this is just for argument's sake: you may very well be correct that it is simply a cultural problem.  But, even if Chinese were just as innovative and inquisitive as the few white geniuses like Isaac Newton, one can still become better: one can become better, then better, then better: there is no limit. The process of improving is what gives us purpose and meaning: we strive for continual improvement, for it's the gradual increase in intelligence and consciousness that gives meaning to our lives.

Respectfully, I try not to say, because I like people to try to consider the validity of the words, regardless of the background of the person.
