Shiji 史記 Annals of the Xia 夏本紀 The Story of Da Yu – English translation

Another part of the Shi Ji annals  written by the Han historian Shima Qian a century before the time of Jesus. Shima Qian referred to ancient sources in his writings, that are not extant anymore.  This chapter is about Yu the Great – Da Yu – whose father Gun failed to control the post Flood swelling lakes and rivers, and paid for it with his life! He was slain by ZhuRong

Yu his son took over the job, not just to save his own life, but most likely to save his family’s honour and reputation. Yu was known for his unswerving fealty to the emperor Shun that compelled him to finish the job, not even considering to return to his wife and children, even though he passed by his home in the course of his labours. For his faithfulness the Emperor chose him as his successor and Yu became the founder of he Xia dynasty.

夏禹,名曰文命。禹之父曰鯀,鯀之父曰帝顓頊,顓頊之父曰昌意,昌意之父曰黃帝。禹者,黃帝之玄孫而帝顓頊之孫也。禹之曾大父昌意及父鯀皆不得在帝位,為人臣。
Yu of Xia was styled Wenming. Yu’s father was Gun, whose father was the Emperor Zhuanxu, whose father was Changyi, whose father was Huangdi; so Yu was Huangdi’s great-great-grandson, and Zhuanxu’s grandson. Yu’s great-grandfather Changyi and his father Gun were both unable to sit on the Imperial throne, being simply officials. (see our diagram below)

Fu-Sang China’s 5th Century Pre-Columbian Colony in West America

PP Editor: Pre-Columbian visits to the Americas according to those blasted Mainstream Historians is of course not politically correct. Bloody gatekeeper Wicked-Pedia also forbids any pre-Columbian contacts with the Americas, condemning any proof as “unsubstantiated” or “pseudo-archaeology” Who needs Wicked pedia’ s politically correct lens on history OR the present. I just go there to see what is “allowed” by the PTB (powers that be) I wish deeply in my heart that there was another wiki that covers everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! I am tired of censorship.

When you “Startpage” the “Global Flood” you get to a WickedPedia page called “The Flood Myth”. Can you believe it? When you look up “Fu Sang” on Wicked Pedia you get the same treatment: Mythological story and “the American hypothesis was all but refuted by the time of the First World War.” These following two articles will blow your mind on how the Chinese around 450 AD visited Fu Sang, probably North America, one thousand years before Columbus. And Chinese people visited them also two millennia before Christ! Enjoy! [SHUN Wicked-Pedia!] Continue reading Fu-Sang China’s 5th Century Pre-Columbian Colony in West America

The Flood & Flood Lakes: Mesopotamian Archaeological Evidence & Cover Up

DaYuu PP FOREWORD: We post this global Flood-skeptic article because of the famous archaeology of Sir Charles Leonard Woolley and his deep finds of several flood deposits, which in the eyes of McDonald do not (and may not) pertain to the GLOBAL Flood. But what he and other Flood skeptic people often forget or never realised, is that many low lands (like Mesopotamia or ‘Land of Shinar’) were subject to post-Flood local floodings and their flood deposit layers.

DaYu

This happened because of large residual pools, cooped up on higher ground or in the mountains, barricaded by earthen walls which sooner or later gave way aggrevated by the heavy early Ice Age rains, and caused subsequent heavy local flooding. This happened in many places, like North American Hopi Lake that eventually burst its walls and its water-flood carved out the Grand Canyon, within a week time.

It happened here in China during the early epic time of Huang Di, Shun Di, and Gun and his son Da Yu (Yu the Great) were instructed to address, alleviate, and fix these flooding problems, because they caused lots of suffering and casualties, and obviously destroyed agricultural lands & harvests. Da Yu succeeded in fixing the problem with nifty “magic earth” techniques, where his father failed and was executed for it by Zhu Rong. (the Chinese kitchen god! All chinese gods were deified human ancestors of the Chinese!) Continue reading The Flood & Flood Lakes: Mesopotamian Archaeological Evidence & Cover Up

Chinese Table of Nations Early Emperors + Ancient Patriarchs 三皇五帝

by Lu Paradise • April 11, 2015 •

DaYuFloodThis is –so far– the best we can do to picture the genealogies & relationships of the earliest Chinese patriarchs like Nüwa, Fuxi, Shen Nong Shi, Huang Di, Yan Di, etc, and their descent from each other all the way to Da Yu. It took quite a while to put together and I hope it can be of use for some people and researchers to understand how tightly interwoven the early Chinese ancestors actually were, and that they were anything but “mythological” but rather legendary and true!

Sure, there were many embellishments inserted into their lives over the millennia, but the persons are real! Even the dragons they rode are historical as you can find out on our other posts! Even Marco Polo reported the Chinese used dragons to pull carts! To see large version, right-click on the pic and then on ‘VIEW IMAGE”! Enjoy!

what-is-mythINTRO: We apply the Euhemerist approach for historical origins — that thank God modern Chinese scholars also follow now — and so take “myths” serious as ’embellished legends’ that carry a factual believeancientsourcewpcore of true historical original characters who became super-naturally glorified via man worship & deification. We do not accept the Darwinian dogma (as Wicked Pedia uses) that the ancients purposely spun unfounded wild tales about themselves creating fictional primo-patriarchs, especially considering the fact chiyou-hansourcethat these legendary characters are mentioned by other ethne as well. Case in point: Chi You(蚩尤) patriarch Txiv Yawg of 12 Miao (Hmong) tribes, was mentioned by Chinese as the son of Yan Di(炎帝), albeit with different spelling, and without deification, of course, depicted as an ‘enemy’ defeated by Huang Di at the Battle of Zhuolu.

HuangDi-YellowEmperor1-201x300[Sect.1 by Ulrich Theobald, diagram & sect. 2 by Lu.]
The Yellow Emperor (Huang Di 黃帝) is considered to be the ancestor of the Chinese people. The clan of the Yellow Emperor (Huangdi zu 黃帝族) aShaanXi-West-of-Shannd the clan of Yan Di his brother (Yandi zu 炎帝族), are thought to have represented the Qijia culture 齊家文化 in modern Gansu and Shaanxi provinces.

Later the tribes obviously moved east to found the cultures of the Central Plain 中原 as basic cultures of Chinese civilization, with a people later named 華夏 (or simply Hua 華 or Xia 夏) who founded China’s first dynasty, the Xia 夏 under ‘Da Yu’ the Great!

Another descendant of the Yellow Emperor’s clan is a clan with the surname Ji 姬 who later founded the Zhou Dynasty 周. Ancestorship of the Yellow Emperor was often construed to obtain legitimation for rulership. Even non-Chinese tribes would later claim their descendency from the Yellow Emperor.

China Shang Emperor Recorded Joseph’s 7 Year Famine! Other Races Too!

Based on Lucy Skylark’s historical interpretations of ancient history:

ChengTang-DaYiJoseph’s global famine (Genesis 41:57) now has been verified! Spread the news! Educate the world to real Ancient World History connected with Biblical History. Shang Dynasty [see article below↓] emperor Cheng Tang some Chinese historians stated his reign began in 1747 B.C. There are others who believe his reign began in 1675 B.C. Chinese emperor Cheng Tang (or: Da Yi) was recorded having a seven year famine verifying Joseph’s seven year famine in Genesis chapter 41. This seven year famine occurred 1704-1697 B.C. Emperor Cheng Tang must have been reigning during this time in world history. The famine was a direct result of real Climate Change when the real Ice Age ended because the warmer oceans — from Global Flood volcanism — cooled down which stopped the heavy rains eroding the Sphinx & pyramids, and which watered the Sahara cattle fields before it became desert.
