  2. Many historians believe that Confucius was born on September 28, 551 BCE near the modern city of Qufu, China, which was at the time known as the Zou district. During this period, the Zou was controlled by the Zhou dynasty.
  3. The most well-known philosophies in Confucianism is the Golden Rule: "you shall not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you." Confucius believed that instead of imposing rules through punishment, the government should rule by example instead.
  4. The First Emperor of the Qin Dynasty was not a fan of freedom of speech. During the construction of the Terracotta Army, he ordered the burning of all treaties and decrees he didn't like.
  5. Whether or not Confucianism counts as religion remains a big question up to this day. Over the years, Chinese governments have not been sure how to define it. When Christians were asked for their opinions, things got even more confusing.
