Nice post LCSULLA.

As if we have a choice about the location of the sperm and egg that made us -  ...

I think the sperm and egg idea here is irrelevant as one may well view ones identity of where you are first aware of where you are. Sounds like a chicken and eggs story to me.

There was no China 5000 years ago - just a load of warring tribes. What about China's rule by Manchu ...
Interesting to note though that before 5000 years ago, there was no land mass here.



No land mass. Really? Where did you find this idea? Why even the Celts crossed to Britannia 4-6,000 years ago from Europe at that time when the English Channel was just ice in the last ice-age.

Yours only got underway ca. 1600 B.C.!


I think this thread is a late April fool's joke with so many dis-informative ideas, as a mere glance at history will show Qin Shi Huangdi (The Yellow Emperor) united China in 220 BC or abouts. He is buried in Xian if you have heard of the Terracotta Warriors. That puts you some 600 years out just on this basic idea, let alone looking back further for more information on who the tribes were and how many at that time.

The right one is "Qin Shi Huangdi united China again"

Have you heard of confucius?

He lived in 551 – 479 BC.

That was my point that even the Yellow Emperor precedes the information from the other poster and I also hinted one could look back further. But surely you could have told the poster who stated 1,600 years that as he seems to lack any knowledge in this historical area.

Am I either?
And if so, why be proud of something that is in no way one's own archeivement, rather than just coincidence?
