Chinese are the oldest culture on earth and dont mention GOD  must be he dose not exist.  Dont worry lots of culture's  talk to god personally and will teach the Chinese. I hope they dont fall it.



The Chinese people are "realists".

Religion is nothing more than a tool for them.

Just as it is a tool for Western countries, but for different reasons.

How many go to Falun Gong simply because they see it as an easy way to get "ass"ylum in a Western country? Religious "persecution and discrimination is a really good ploy to gain residency in a Western country - get a student visa - then once overseas apply for assylum on the grounds of religion - works a a treat.... we have assisted many of our family and friends to migrate and get into the big $ earning life in Australia. The immigration people here are really suckers for religion issues.

Believing in the religious bs is not mandatory - just a clever tool.

Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.

I'd like to restate and clarify what I said above.

The kitchen god and the dragon king are Chinese mythology but I imagine there are few if any people who believe in them nowadays.  

The religions of Islam and Christianity, of course, have a deity but only a small percentage (maybe 5%) of the population practice these.

I'm sure some Buddhists must believe in Kuan Yin. In China Kuan Yin is thought of as being a goddess. But in India, Kuan Yin was originally a male Bodhisattva which is not the same thing as a god.

I believe that in Tib et there are many deities that the people believe in. It seems to me that they are more superstitious than the Chinese people as a whole.
