The International Red Cross in its 1998 world disasters report says that year was the worst on record. Hurricane Mitchell struck in central America, drought in Indonesia, and floods affected 180 million in south China. Earlier, in 1939 floods in north China from the Yellow River killed 100,000. Prior to that, in 1931 floods killed 3.7 million, and in Manchu dynasty times in 1887, a flood caused 900,000 deaths. Ancient China must have had a long record of floods, since, like ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, its early civilisation was built near a river.
Consequently, the Chinese must have built boats quite early, and a form of the word must have been written down since early times. The modern Chinese word for boat or ship (船 chuan) is a curious one. It escaped the 1956 character simplification reform in China, but today it is found in two forms.

A remarkable anomaly was discovered on this Earth. A strange, man-made-like ship-shape with a sharp bow and rounded stern, plus other archaeological artifacts obviously related to it, are all situated at the very same geographic spot, with related ancient place names, but to top it all off, there exists related documentation in hundreds of historical annals, ancient legends, local lore, even evidenced on ancient cuneiform tablets.
Fascinating? You choose the word! More than fascinating! We find no words to describe this amazing discovery, which strangely enough is fully and studiously ignored by–who else but–the global mainstream media.
Well, most of us bloggers are hardly surprised by that, as millions have now turned to the blogs for news and true info. A Gallup poll showed how 57 % of Americans have “little or no trust anymore in the mainstream media”, an attitude that seems to be reflected worldwide.
An additional, comical poll-result was, that the most gullible sections among the US public who still trust the media, appear to be “the youth and liberals“, or “leftists” as we call them in the rest of the world. Of course we can forgive young people for being rather ignorant, as they just didn’t have the time yet, nor experience to form a well-balanced and historically just viewpoint, being raised on Micky Mouse, Sponge Bob, Simpsons, Disney, CNN, Fox, Yahoo, and Wikipedia! Ha! But the poor leftists? Ay, ay, ay! But lets not digress… Back to the amazing anomaly! Continue reading The discovery of an amazing ship-shape anomaly & its cover-up! Is it Noah’s Ark?→

Fu Xi and Nü Wa pictured with dragon tails intertwined. (Picture by Ma Lin 160 AD) Every school-child in China, Taiwan, and other Chinese places, learns already early on about their original Chinese patriarchs and their histories. But the most ancient Chinese history has become quite embellished over 4 1/2 thousand years and changed into mythology. As a result, the 21st Century Chinese are quite confused about their earliest primo-genitors, and if it weren’t for a very interesting discovery that this article reveals, their earliest patriarchs would have stayed obscure until the end of time.
This 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!
Did you know that Ham or (guttural) Cham was a real person of history? The Syrians of today since the dawn of time still proudly call their nation the ‘Land of Cham’!
Maybe it’s hard to believe but it is a fact that Cham & sons & others, traveled by ship to many places in Asia, Africa, Europe, all over the world, which places he –as the fashion was in those days– proudly named after himself. Vietnamwas also called the ‘Land of Cham’, right next to CAMbodia, also named after the Kambujadesa from India, after the very same ancient seafaring enigmatic personality! Who was he?
Ever heard the Deluge story of the Indians? Above is an Indian illustration of 8 Flood survivors on a boat pulled by a fish? It follows the story of MaNU, (also called Satyavrata) the Indian name for Noe, Noahk, Nur, Nu-U, Nu-Ah, Nüwa, OuraNOH, whichever nation’s name you prefer to use for our great global Patriarch and ancient leader of the eight Deluge survivors known from over seven hundred ancient legends worldwide! This comes from the oldest Indian book called the ‘Satapatha Brahmana’ & the ‘Matsya Purana’.
In various Hindu traditions, Manu, is a title accorded to the progenitor of mankind, andthe very first king to rule this earth, who saved mankind from the great flood, after being warned of it by the Matsya avatar of Vishnu, who told him to build a giant boat and populate it with “his family animals, and 9 types of SEEDS!”
Seeds on the Ark are not mentioned in Genesis by Moses, but it makes perfect sense, as many people ask the question, “from what did the new trees, grasses and plants grow after the water receded?” Well of course there were seeds floating on the water and in the air, and perhaps some buried shallowly in the mud, but likely not too many. So there is the Indian answer to that skepticism.

INTRO: 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 core 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 creatingfictional primo-patriarchs, especially considering the fact that 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. (proof is in the Han dynasty relief on the right here⇒ compared to a nicer Hmong statue below⇓)
[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) and 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!
