and values

Confucianism definitions.
Ancient china practices.
Because China is a communist state, there is no official religion and more than half of the people claim no religious connection or finds as nonbeliever. About a quarter of the people practice Taoism and Confucianism and other traditional religions. There are also small numbers of Buddhists, Muslims and Christians. Although many Protestant and Catholic organizations have been active in the country since the early 19th century, they have made little progress in changing Chinese to these religions.

Ancient China beliefs.
Some of ancient china's beliefs include Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. China has been a multi-religion country since the early times. It is well known that Confucianism is an native religion and is the soul of Chinese culture, which liked popular support among people and even became the guiding line for feudalism society, but it did not grow into a national belief. It makes the culture more accepting to others, so, many other religions have been brought into the country in different dynasties, but none of them settled powerful enough in the history and they only provide diverse people more spiritual support.

Confucianism probably has the biggest effect in education of China through the whole history of China. A form of public education system was recognized later in Han Dynasty. Not only leaders from upper class families can study in school, common man can also use education as a route to become a better man, known as gentleman.

Chinese people speak mandarin which is based on Beijing Dialect. From the words on truth bones in the Shang Dynasty, it is concluded that the formation of Chinese characters has a history of more than 3,000 years. Its increase can be divided into two major periods: from words on truth bones to mini-seal script, and from Li calligraphy to modern character.
