Chinese oracle bones were used for divination. Shang kings of China used Chinese oracle bones to carve questions to ask, from deceased ancestors. They were originally sold… as dragon bones for medicine purposes.
an oracle bone is a type of bone that when the Chinese found one it had scriptures on it and they would use it to know their future and the priests would make the bone crack w…ith a hot metal thingy and when the bone would crack they would have to be really intelligent to be able to tell what the answer to their question was by the way it cracked.] ==
It tells us what the Chinese believed in and it taught us more about ancient China's culture.
OpinionLet's have a look at Nazi Germany. Although no one would consider Hitler a true Christian, Adolf Hitler was raised in a country that allowed belief in God. He even call…ed on God in support of his war effort. Many German people prayed for victory. Yet few countries in modern times could have been more synonymous with genocide. The inter-racial strife in the former republic of Yugoslavia bordered on genocide. Yet all sides believed in the same God, whether as Catholics, Orthodox or Muslim. Those responsible for crimes against humanity professed belief in God. Going back in history: The First Crusade was actually fought in order to defend belief in God. When the crusaders overran Jerusalem, the order given was for total genocide. They killed all the inhabitants, without concern for whether they were Christian, Jew or Muslim. And the Bible is replete with stories of genocide committed by the Hebrew people. Modern scholars do not believe that these genocidal events reallyhappened, but the narrative demonstrates that the Hebrews were willing to justify genocide, even in their most sacred texts. No doubt there are examples of genocide committed by countries that followed other gods, as well as countries nominally committed to atheism, but these examples show that countries that prohibit belief in God are no more likely to commit crimes against humanity than are others. -------- I doubt there is any effective way to measure 'magnitude of genocide' in any given country, and contrast that with 'prohibition of belief in God', but I imagine that there would be no direct correlation between the two variables, as the prohibition of belief in God would probably have very little effect on one's decision to commit genocide. I would say, that even if countries that prohibited belief in God had 'more genocide' on average - It would be nothing more that a coincidence. It's like saying that global temperatures are increasing in a way inversely proportionate to the amount of pirate. While that statement may look true on a graph, the two variables probably have no effect on each other. #3 answ: I think maybe they do. I think that a government who tries to control their people to the point of their religious beliefs are the type who might be willing to lean toward genocide to "control" it's people. That's just an opinion though. There is not factual information that is based on.
They are the oldest relics of written Chinese language.And it mark the start of China's written history.
yes they were. ancient Chinese people put their bones into the wall while being attacked by a giant man eating spider
The Shang Kings.
It depends on the subject matter, if it is something that you feel you have been unjustly treated over some times a newspaper will print your story to try and pressure the oth…er party into making amends. Or you could find a Legal advisor that does Pro-bono work. I know in the U.K people under a certain income or on state benefits are entitled to free legal aid or advice up to about 10,000 pounds.
A:The Chinese creation story seems unfamiliar to Westerners, but is no more fantastic than the creation stories of certain other religions that believe that man was moulded ou…t of clay, believe in a talking snake, magic trees and the breath of God being the wind. The following is a summary of that story. In the beginning of time, there was only chaos. The elements and gases of the heavens and earth freely mingled, and the organising principle was dormant, waiting for the right moment to begin the transformation. The shape of this primeval mass was something like an egg. For 18,000 years the universe remained in this state, until the incubation was finally complete, and the egg hatched and the heavens and the earth came into existence. The lighter, most pure substances floated upward and became the heavens. These elements were named yang. The heavier, more impure substances descended and became the earth, or yin. From the same forces, a third, the giant Pan Ku, was born as well. As he grew, his sheer size divided the heavens and the earth. Pan Ku lived for another 18,000 years. With the assistance of four creatures, a tortoise, a phoenix, a dragon, and a unicorn, he laboured daily to mould the earth as we know it today. When Pan Ku finally died, his left eye became the sun and his right eye became the moon. His blood became the rivers and oceans, his breath became the wind, his sweat the rain, and his voice the thunder.

The Ancient Greeks went to Oracles (Such as Delphi) to ask what will happen in the near future.
Ancestors are Gods. If you bothered to study Ancient China tradition, you'd know that ancestors are the spiritual Gods. Example: Zues, Athena, etc.
They were after inside information on how to solve problems and sought the god's advice on how to deal with the problem, on the basis that the god knew. The orac…les were a fix by the custodians of the oracles. The fixers gave a double meaning to the oracles delivered, so they were right whichever way events went. The city hosting the major oracle at Delphi had agents in all the main cities to get advance notice of upcoming questions so that they could cook up clever answers.
The Chinese people used the oracle bone to know where to travel and get important necessities.
