on how and when it and the
symbols were designed. All records of the oldest
civilizations have remained
unchanged in all of history.

Babylonians by the Akkadians,
from north of Assyria, before
3000 B.C. No one is closer to discovering
the true origins than before.
But there are many stories and
legends of how the
Chinese Zodiac came to be. Some people believe Buddah
invited all the animals to join him
for a New Year's celebration. It says
only 12 animals arrived to see Buddah.
He made a promise to each of them. His
pomise was that he would name each year
after each animal in which the order they
arrived. Traditionally the Rat begins the Zodiac.
There are many legends as to why this is
so. Some have to do with winning races,
others involve the Rat arriving first by
tricking the cat, who swore to always be
the natural enemy of the Rat. Why is Chinese Zodiac
still used in China today? The Chinese calander
still orients around
