Do they also practice Buddhism as well? thanks for explaining this to me, and please explain to me anything else one should know about the Chinese religions. wow, sorry I made a typo.

Answer: Like most Euro-Americans and most African-Americans, most Asian-Americans are in fact Christian: http://www.asianamericanalliance.com/Asian-American-Religion-Spirituality-and-Faith.html >>every one of my christian friends say they practice Christianity. Yeah, kind of like all the cops I know who say they're policemen. Who would thought?!? >>Do they also practice Buddhism [sic] as well? Uh, no.

How Should Cycling Be Encouraged In The United States?From Cycling Forum:
How should cycling be encouraged in the United States? Most people assume bike riding is with children or adults on recreation. Not so in big Cities like New York, where grown men and women use bikes as their primary mode of transpiration. So shouldn't more cities be like Portland or New York, how about bike lanes on country roads, more bridges retrofitted to allow bikes. Hell Cycling is almost a religion in china. I also like to add the only CO put in the atmosphere is before the point of sale. I also would like to add that cops need to crack down on cars parking in bike lanes. Every motorist does it even the NY PD.
Answer: Contrary to another answer that stated, "I would bring in legislation everywhere, that no new roads could be built without bike lanes...", I would ABOLISH bicycle lanes. Most of them are poorly conceived, poorly designed & if next to the curb, too full of road debris. Prime example is on ST link below. Not only is it too narrow (placing a cyclist in the door zone) as you stated, delivery trucks & often police themselves park there - for God knows how long. Another problem with bike lanes is they sometimes end abruptly or are poorly marked at intersections. Motorists don't don't know which way the cyclist is going because nothing is clearly marked. Replace them all with "sharrows" - as on the ND link. The sh arrow clearly states that this is a traffic lane for all kinds of "vehicles". And a bicycle is designated as a vehicle in all 50 states & Canada. You can also lobby your state & local government through state & local cycling clubs...as I do through Trail net http://www.trailnet.org/ and Missouri Bike Fed http://mobikefed.org/ . You can wear a brightly colored jersey or T-Shirt that reminds motorists that you need room to maneuver, just as they do. Example: 3 Feet Please.com http://www.3feetplease.com/ By wearing clothing that gives motorists a friendly reminder, they might just think about it the next time they pass a cyclist too closely. http://www.3feetplease.com/shop 3 Feet Please is now the LAW in 17 states & 1 Meter Please in Nova Scotch, Canada. You can "take the lane". By demanding more respect from motorists & riding in a safe, predictable manner, you will earn more respect. If someone wants to make an issue about it, I show them a copy of Missouri State Statutes Regarding Bicyclists on RD link. (pdf. file) I have copies printed up & carry them with me. What surprises a lot of people is the fact I already have the legal right to use the entire lane under the right conditions...such as - "when passing a standing vehicle or one proceeding in the same direction, except when making a left turn, when avoiding hazardous conditions, when the lane is too narrow to share with another vehicle or when on a one-way street." We don't need more bicycle laws. We need smarter bicycle laws. Take it out of the hands of engineers who design the "supposed" designated bicycle lanes. Put it in the hands of real cyclists who ride every day or almost every day. Put more questions about cyclists in the test to obtain a driver's license. Make the public aware!

What Is Difference Between Religion Of China And Tibet?From Religion & Spirituality Forum:
What is difference between religion of China and Tibet? It's Buddhism. Right? Then what's the diff in both Buddhism? What are % of diff religions in china?
Answer: In my homeland. Before Buddhism came, Bone was the main religion in Tibet. Later after the arrival of Buddhism, some of practices of Bone religion still remained in Tibetan Buddhism, majority Mahayana China has I think three main religion (before Christianity & Islam) and they are Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. Tibetan Buddhism is the body of Buddhist religious doctrine and institutions characteristic of Tibet and certain regions of the Himalayas, including northern Nepal, Bhutan, and India (Arunachal Prudish, Ladoga and Sikkim). It is also practiced in Mongolia and parts of Russia (Kalmykia, Bryana, and Tuva) and Northeast China. Tibetan Buddhism comprises many distinct schools, but is primarily divided into four main traditions: Myanmar, Kaye, Ge lug, and Skye. Tibetan Buddhism is very visual as well as very verbal. People use objects, such as prayer wheels, dorks (thunderbolts), bells, etc on a daily basis. Temples have large prayer wheels which people can spin as they walk around the temple in a clockwise direction (a person's right side is pure and must always face the temple, the left side should always face away from the temple). Tibetan temples are filled with mandalas (elaborate symbolic paintings), statues, rugs, wall hangings, statues, offerings, etc. In front of Buddha statues, there are always butter lamps burning; people drape statues with prayer scarves as a means of worship. Study is verbal, with monks reciting in unison or engaging in debates on various points of doctrine. The debates are physical as well as mental, with elaborate hand and body gestures accompanying the statements. In China: Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. Confucianism: the most important element in Confucian ideas is that everything in life is relational; one's success or failure in any situation depends upon one's relations to others. There are certain key values that Confucians use in making all decisions and these values do not change but the ways they are applied change. The first value is compassion for all involved in a given situation. The second is righteousness and justice for everyone involved in a situation. The third is propriety, what is the proper way to act while maintaining the relationships in which one is involved. The fourth is loyalty: how to act in this situation while supporting all one's possible conflicting loyalties. The fifth is to act with filial piety, considering the welfare of one's parents, and by extension, one's family, and one's country, not one's own wishes. The sixth is honesty and truthfulness. Daoism: Like Confucianism, Taoism is a native Chinese tradition that is both a philosophy and a religion. In its philosophical mode, it became the preserve of the educated elite, of poets and administrators, of the retired and those experiencing difficulties in life. Taoist philosophy, centering on the mystical (and thus hard to understand) writing attributed to Laos (Lao Tse) and Huang's (Chuang Tse) stresses letting nature take its course, following the natural way. It attributes all ills to interference with nature and thus stresses that humankind should discard all contrivances and return to a simple state. It uses images of water (the softest of all things which wears away the hardest stone) to illustrate the virtue of non-contention. It uses feminine images to counter the more masculine images of a traditional Confucian society: in Taoist thought, the feminine always triumphs. Many well known Chinese ideas, including those of guerrilla warfare and the martial arts, are based on Taoist principles of using weakness to overcome strength. (Mao Zedong once said of the Red Army, that it ran away 100 times more than it fought, which is why it was victorious). Daoism was a fairly anti-establishment kind of philosophy; it advocated a natural lifestyle and opposed the Confucian stress on ethics and education. To Taoists, ethics were natural until civilization messed things up; thus the more education a person had, the less reliable she/he was, because he/she was more divorced from the natural way. Taoism is full of wonderful stories that illustrate its points. Buddhism in China: Buddhism is the third of the mix of great religions that shaped Chinese life and culture. Unlike Confucianism and Taoism, Buddhism was not a native tradition but originated in India and was brought to China over a number of centuries by traders, missionaries, and travelers. While it entered China during the Eastern Han dynasty (1st and ND centuries A.D.) it didn't become popular until the period of division in China (3-6th centuries). During this time period, China was divided into a number of independent kingdoms, split between native Chinese dynasties ruling in the South and nomadic conquest dynasties ruling in the North. It was a time of great uncertainty, of military rule, of the destruction of cities and livelihoods. However, this period was also one of intellectual and scientific change and growth and it was during this period of time that Buddhism gained a strong foothold in both North and South China, although for different reasons. To many Chinese, it offered an explanation of what had happened to their civilization and a response to the difficulties of the day. Buddhism came to China with ideas and beliefs vastly different from those of native Chinese religions and its acceptance was a process of accommodation on both sides. Four main differences between Buddhism and Chinese ideas are: the Buddhist belief in reincarnation compared to the Chinese belief in a single life; the Buddhist insistence upon leaving society and entering the homeless celibate life of a monk or nun compared to the Chinese emphasis on family and continuing the descent line; the Buddhist belief in the non existence of a soul compared to the Chinese belief in both heavenly and earthly souls and the continuation of these souls' ability to influence events after death; the Buddhist belief in the independence of the monastic community compared to the Chinese insistence that all institutions are under the government. In all of these areas, Buddhism adjusted to Chinese society. Thus, the Chinese came to believe both in reincarnation and in the deceased becoming an ancestor; Buddhist temples became repositories for spirit plaques and memorial services to ancestors. The government passed laws restricting who could become a monk or a nun and forbidding children who had no siblings from taking this path. The government insisted that the monasteries were subservient to the state and indeed they came to be supporters of the government.

Hi, Can Someone Read This And Tell Me If This Is A Good Paragraph On The Main Point Of A Historical Movie?From History Forum:
Hi, Can Someone read this and tell me if this is a good paragraph on the main point of a historical movie? The main point of this video was to illustrate particularly important ideals developed in Early China that still has a lasting impact on Modern China. Some of these ideals include how China in the year 1000 was the center of civilization. From that period of time on, there were many significant inventions such as paddle boats, gunpowder, and the clock. Another important ideal was Chi which was a conception of a vital source. This concept is still alive in Modern China along with Taoism. Taoism is a religion in China and it can also be considered as a philosophy. The movie mentioned that Taoists believed that they can transform themselves into mortals. What is the best way to conclude this?
Answer: very good indeed

Answer: Taoism and Buddhism were both founded around the Th Century BE. Taoism, of which Confucianism is a branch, has a pancreatic relationship with Buddhism in China. Taoism and Ch'an Buddhism for centuries had a mutual influence on each other in China, Korea and Vietnam. These influences were inherited by Zen Buddhism when Ch'an Buddhism arrived in Japan and adapted as Zen Buddhism.
