    America didnt invent the gun anyways.

    China invented gunpowder and black powder. and also created an early version of the gun using bamboo, black powder, and rocks. Germans invented the gun.

    Chinese has been doing chemistry and alchemy at the same time egyptions were building things as useless as pyrimids.

    I'd put my money on:
    the printing press (China),
    Penecillin (Scotland/UK),
    gunpowder (China),
    Steam Engine (UK)
    I'm not really sure about the last one.


    Note: I'm not trying to promote the intelligence of China's or the UK's population.

    i don't get it why do you people care so much...i mean i don't really care of what china UK America invented( its not like if it is you guys...) but its true that America is scared how fast china is growing. and i still don't get why America is still fighting Iraq. and here is Another fact America is scared of china because Chinese are not scared to die for their own country so if they were fighting ( which i hope it won't happen) that Chinese might have a chance to win.

    Actually both the printing press and the guns that were invented and all others since have been based on came from Germany. Yes, China had printing but it was never done in a way as to allow mass production of written materials to the general populace. Yes, they had gunpowder and even invented guns but they did it so badly they abandoned their use within a few hundred years.

    All the credit goes to Germany.

    China's own policy of closed borders and no change prevented their inventions from being developed to their full potential let alone from spreading to the rest of the world. Someone did smuggle out gunpowder but there is question about whether or not the discovery was also made in other locations as well simultaneously to it's spread into Arabia. It doesn't matter who invented something first if they never passed it to the person that invented it next... If that makes any sense.

    BTW, I think that may have been the top 5 things in the past century... it would make more sense.


    Anyway...

    So what? How does that have any bearing on whether or not their military is competent rather then just large?

    Actually the Chinese did invent the printing press like it was used later in Germany. The thing is, they had no use for it and opted to stay with the even older, simpler press that just copied one whole page at the time. It could be operated swiftly, could be operate with only one person and was incredibly fast.

    The Chinese just didn't have much use for a press with single letter blocks.


    About the gunpowder: The Chinese didn't use it like the Europeans did (they did use it for weapons though) but e.g. the Mongols used them for hand grenades. A weapon that is still in use today (although not in the same form of course). Also note that I was not calling guns but gunpowder one of the most important inventions.


    All in all, even though these inventions were put to a different use in Europe. The credit for the inventions goes to China.

    I will grant you the gunpowder even if there is some question about whether it spread from China or was discovered simultaneously elsewhere.

    The printing press? Nope. Not unless you show show a direct link between a disused (very breakable) clay movable type in China and the Gutenberg Press invented in Germany. That is the press that changed the world.

    As I said before, you cannot claim to have changed the world if what you did did not go to the rest of the world, even if you invented it first.
