20 + years ago my mother was told a story by a once citizen of china that invovled a comepletly differnt creationist myth. This woman stated that this
story was told to her by her great grandparents.
This version of the chinese creationist myth invovled a ship which landed in china in a state of distress. Only a small number of those that landed
could go to retrieve help for the others. Since they came from a pre-exsisting civilization they felt they had no need to write any of their history
down, by the time the 'rescuers' made it to their stranded citizens they had died, leaving decendants who were far removed from the originating
civilzation that landed. So they left, leaving the new culture behind.
Since i heard this story I've been trying to find out some of the other details that my mother forgot for her - and have come up empty handed. This
bares no resembelance to the The Three Auguest Ones, and/or the Five Emporers legends seeing as this rather invovles a group of people or beings. It
does however sound close to the Summerian Annunaki.
SO. I was wondering if anyone had any information, apart from the Sumerian Creation myth Anunnaki simularity, that is spacific to China. I place this
here because of the 'lost civilization' aspect. The desendances had no written or oral history of the originating culture, so a new one evovled
which now i can't find anything out about it. She also mentioned a spoken language which she can't remember what it was called. It wasn't
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
