There are some very interesting things about the ancient Chinese. Firstly is the fact that their original religion was based on a single monotheistic diety (Shangdi).

The above video shows how the original Chinese were monotheists, who worshipped a supreme single diety. Their account of creation bears striking similarity to Genesis:

''Of old in the beginning, there was the great chaos, without form and dark. The five elements [planets] had not begun to revolve, nor the sun and moon to shine. You, O Spiritual Sovereign, first divided the grosser parts from the purer. You made heaven. You made earth. You made man. All things with their reproducing power got their being’'

''ShangDi, the Creator-God of the Chinese, surely appears to be one and the same as the Creator-God of the Hebrews. In fact, one of the Hebrew names for God is El Shaddai, which is phonetically similar to ShangDi.''

However there is much more evidence which links the ancient Chinese to Genesis. The beginning of ancient Chinese documentated history and their first dynasty, perfectly corelate with the dispersal at the Tower of Babel. Their ancient mythology preserves an account of the deluge, the Miautso or Miao peoples of China also preserved the mention of Noah in their creation account as ''Nuah''.

The book God's Promise to the Chinese by Ethel R. Nelson and Richard E. Broadberry puts forward a lot of evidence for a similarity of the Chinese written characters and Genesis. This has also been documented in the work The Discovery of Genesis: How the Truths of Genesis Were Found Hidden in the Chinese Language . About the book and research:

''This linguistic analysis of the Chinese language suggests the ancient Chinese were well aware of the God of Abraham. Readers will discover the possibility that the Chinese were a remnant of the Tower of Babel dispersion.The evidence they compile supports the thesis that the ancient picture writing of the Chinese language embodies memories of man's earliest days. The characters when broken down into component parts, reflect elements of the story of God and man recorded in the early chapters of Genesis. Man and woman, the garden, the institution of marriage, the temptaton and fall, death, Noah's flood, the tower of Babel - they are all there in the tiny drawings and strokes that make up the Chinese characters.''

Chinese also have a big flood story.

It is said that the heaven kept pouring down rain on earth causing a big flood, and a female god somehow mended the heaven and stopped the rain and saved all people from the flood.

And coincidentially, despite that the hero figure is a female, the name of of 'her' is somehow pronounced as "Noah".

nvwo butian = Noah amended the heaven (to stop the flood).

This is fascinating! I heard that Noah of the Chinese flood story patched the sky with colored stones (13:30 in the video):
Cultures around the world (many flood "myths" confirming Biblical details of the flood and creation over and over again) are currently being sought out by Jeremy Wiles the Ark Hunter
(starting at 11:35, 13:30, and 23:00 are about the flood) (starting at 16:10, 21:15 is some more interesting Biblical details preserved in "non-Judeo-Christian cultures).

And heres some more info I found on China:
