Brief Introduction of Religions & Beliefs Across China2016-10-20 10:02:58Share:
Since the ancient times China has been a multi-religion country. It is well known that Confucianism is an indigenous religion and is the soul of Chinese culture, which attained popular support from people and even became the guiding ideology in Chinese feudalism society, but it did not develop into a national belief.
It made the culture more tolerant to others, so many other religions were brought into the country in different dynasties, but none of them developed powerful enough in the history and they only provided different people with diverse spiritual support and relief.
On the basis of a latest survey, among Chinese people, 85% of them have religious beliefs or had some religious practices and only 15% of them are real atheists. (The real atheist here refers to those who don’t have faith in any religions nor had any activities related to religions or folk customs.) 185 million people believe in Buddhism, 33 million in Christianity, and only 12 million in Taoism, even if more than 100 million have taken part in Taoism activities before.
