I have found this interesting video of a seminar that was conducted in singapore, presenting the facts of historical records of chinese culture way back to 2,500 BC until 2009 AD with comparison of event recorded in chinese records and the bible in old testament and draw a few major similarity of event recorded in both culture.

the timeline shown in the seminar draws connections between the time of creations...very interesting. I tried to share the google link , but it didn't work, but I found the segments of the same video on youtube.

God In Ancient China - Part 1

God in Ancient China - Part 2

It is wonderful when someone rediscovers information about our Most High God in history.

Though many will still continue to disbelieve as if there is a God then they will have to answer to him,
So they will be willfully ignorant of the truth, and the evidence.

what is even more interesting that, the records event before and after the flood is embedded in the chinese written language itself, therefore I believe that most of the cultures around the world has a common historical of the flood but is probably told from their cultural perspective.

There is a hill tribe in southwestern China, who once occupied all of China south of the Yangtze River, and they are called the Miao or the Miautso people. They have handed down by oral tradition their own history, from the Creation to the Tower of Babel, exactly paralleling the Bible. Even the names of Biblical characters are uncannily close to those in the Bible. After the Tower, their story diverges from the Biblical account, just as we would expect, if it all happened as the Bible says. I gleaned all this from the Institute for Creation Research's Impact Series (#214). If I can find it online I will copy and paste it later...well here it is, not hard to find at all:

The Translation

The Creation

On the day God created the heavens and earth.
On that day He opened the gateway of light.
In the earth then He made heaps of earth and of stone.
In the sky He made bodies, the sun and the moon.
In the earth He created the hawk and the kite.
In the water created the lobster and fish.
In the wilderness made He the tiger and bear,
Made verdure to cover the mountains,
Made forest extend with the ranges,
Made the light green cane,
Made the rank bamboo.
Man

On the earth He created a man from the dirt.
Of the man thus created, a woman He formed.
Then the Patriarch Dirt made a balance of stones.
Estimated the weight of the earth to the bottom. (Note 1)
Calculated the bulk of the heavenly bodies.
And pondered the ways of the Deity, God.
The Patriarch Dirt begat Patriarch Se-teh.
The Patriarch Se-Teh begat a son Lusu.
And Lusu had Gehlo and he begat Lama.
The Patriarch Lama begat the man Nuah.
His wife was the Matriarch Gaw Bo-lu-en.
Their sons were Lo Han, Lo Shen and Jah-hu. (Note 2)
So the earth began filling with tribes and with families.
Creation was shared by the clans and the peoples.
The World Wicked

These did not God's will nor returned His affection.
But fought with each other defying the Godhead.
Their leaders shook fists in the face of the Mighty
Then the earth was convulsed to the depth of three strata.
Rending the air to the uttermost heaven.
God's anger arose till His Being was changed;
His wrath flaring up filled His eyes and His face.
Until He must come and demolish humanity.
Come and destroy a whole world full of people.
The Flood

So it poured forty days in sheets and in torrents.
Then fifty-five days of misting and drizzle.
The waters surmounted the mountains and ranges.
The deluge ascending leapt valley and hollow.
An earth with no earth upon which to take refuge!
A world with no foothold where one might subsist!
The people were baffled, impotent and ruined,
Despairing, horror stricken, diminished and finished.
But the Patriarch Nuah was righteous.
The Matriarch Gaw Bo-lu-en upright.
Built a boat very wide.
Made a ship very vast.
Their household entire got aboard and were floated,
The family complete rode the deluge in safety.
The animals with him were female and male.
The birds went along and were mated in pairs.
When the time was fulfilled, God commanded the waters.
The day had arrived, the flood waters receded.
Then Nuah liberated a dove from their refuge,
Sent a bird to go forth and bring again tidings.
The flood had gone down into lake and to ocean;
The mud was confined to the pools and the hollows.
There was land once again where a man might reside;
There was a place in the earth now to rear habitations.
Buffalo then were brought, an oblation to God,
Fatter cattle became sacrifice to the Mighty.
The Divine One then gave them His blessing;
Their God then bestowed His good graces.
Babel

Lo-han then begat Cusah and Mesay. (Note 3)
Lo-shan begat Elan and Nga-shur.
Their offspring begotten became tribes and peoples;
Their descendants established encampments and cities.
Their singing was all with the same tunes and music;
Their speaking was all with the same words and language.
Then they said let us build us a very big city;
Let us raise unto heaven a very high tower.
This was wrong, but they reached this decision;
Not right, but they rashly persisted.
God struck at them then, changed their language and accent.
Descending in wrath, He confused tones and voices.
One's speech to the others who hear him has no meaning;
He's speaking in words, but they can't understand him.
So the city they builded was never completed;
The tower they wrought has to stand thus unfinished.
In despair then they separate under all heaven,
They part from each other the globe to encircle. (Note 4)
They arrive at six corners and speak the six languages.
Miao Genealogy

The Patriarch Jahphu got the center of nations. (Note 5)
The son he begat was the Patriarch Go-men.
Who took him a wife called the Matriarch Go-yong.
Their grandson and his wife both took the name Tutan.
Their descendants are given in order as follows:
Patriarch Gawndan Mew-wan,
Matriarch Cawdan Mew-jew;
Patriarch Jenku Dawvu, Matriarch Jeneo Boje;
Patriarch Gangen Newang (wife not given);
Patriarch Seageweng, Matriarch Maw gueh.
Their children, eleven in number, was each the head of a family.
Five branches became the Miao nation.
Six families joined with the Chinese.
The story continues through many more pages, telling of the separation of the Chinese and Miao; their travels and demon worship, their division into families.

The Miao at funerals and weddings recite the ancestry of the principal or principals clear back to Adam. Their frequent use of it may account for its accuracy.

this is good information, thanks
, i believe we can find more of such stories within the clans of chinese people..the biggest clan in china is the Han people which then divided into sub categories of cantonese, hakka, hokkien and many more but there is more clans other than the Han, the miao and many more which i do not know. However I will find out more.

the other interesting part of the history of that region, is that the Han (as to my shallow knowledge) was defined based on the Han Dynasty and not of a clan or race of people, however there are a few points that i have been pondering for a long time about the Han as a race of people is the origin of Korea, in cantonese, we call Korea as (Han Guo) the country of the Han.

the other interesting point is about the origin of Hungary, which were derived out of a race of people call Hun ("Attila the Hun") which were said to have come from the steep of asia minor. the Hun bear resemblance to the asiatic mongol features..but why call the HUN? or is it referring to the same race of the HAN people?

However, do they not call themselves the "Magyar"? Their language is related to that of the Turks and Finns (Finno-Ugric language family), so it looks like they came from central Asia, not eastern Asia.

Absolutely amazing stuff. And it goes to show what I have always felt in my heart - we have always assumed that post tower of babel when God split man up and mixed up his languages that he ignored everyone except Israel, but I have thought, why would that be? Surely not every single person born out of Israel and the spheres of its influence in ancient times was ignored by God?

Here we have almost a carbon copy of old scripture. Maybe God did pop in to check on the other tribes of man from time to time and maybe share his word with good people he found. This would appear to be the smoking gun in the supporting evidence of this theory.

We see this in people like Melchizedek and Jethro, high priests of God, but not of the Abrahamic line. I have been told that all religions were monotheistic if you trace them back far enough. You're on the right track with your last post, well done.

The other thing this proves to me is that God, the living God is pure, awesome and unadulterated love. He may have punished mankind for it's wrong doings like a parent scalds their child in the past present and future. But he is always there waiting with a warm embrace for those of us who see the err of our ways and come back to him and apologise with a sorry heart.
