Both Egyptians and the Chinese believed equally as modern day Christians that there’s an afterlife for the deceased.
In China and India , they were different in ways like how they thought a government should control a civilization. China was isolated and when constructing the ideals of their government they were practically blind unlike India they had ideas to build upon. The development of political ideas had some similarities such as how religion had great influence on political views. But the civilizations differed when it came to how leaders governed the civilization and how they managed to create their political views for a basis of their government.
Many civilizations have affected one another whether or not it's a serious or minor impact; it still has a control on one another. Egypt and Mesopotamia were not totally different; a person’s social standing determined by what proportion of money that they had. Egypt and Mesopotamia were designed on the backs of slavery, acting manual labor that was taxed by the rich. Although, each had political similarities, they had numerous differences. Egypt had a centralized government dominated by a ruler whereas Mesopotamia had a City-State government dominated by a King.
Rome (750 BC – AD 500) and China (350 BC – AD 600) experienced conflicts not only in the physical sense, such as in wars, but also in political struggles, religion, and power. Although each civilization had similarities, like structured governments in the form of emperors and dynasties, they also had differences, like in the way they wrote laws and dealt with handing out those rules. Religion was still going through changes of rules, while certain countries starting grasping ideas of new ones. War kept on brewing up between common enemies, causing battles against who should take over certain land parts. Finally, politics, with ever popular emperors and empresses coming about while other major ones dying off, causing civil confusion and conflictions.
Imperial Rome and Mauryan China both had many similarities and differences. From the religions that they practiced to their social classes, there is a lot of rich history for both of the countries to have similar and different.
The Attitude the Chinese had towards the tolerance of labor was more efficient and positive rather than thee Romans who relied more on an efficient systematic and class divided society. These empires where established roughly at different time periods but didn’t end the same.

Han China and Mauryan India had many similarities. They were both bureaucracies, they both had emperors, and both empires established their laws on religious belief. They also had a lot of contrasting ideas for positioning their people, and they had contrasting ideas for their different religious standpoints.

Some of the earliest civilizations were similar in many ways, but there were also differences, based on the geography, climate, and culture. One of the more obvious similarities were the location. The first people settled around rivers. Rivers are incredibly important for many reasons, including a source of freshwater, which is essential to survival, a food source, since animals tend to gather around water, and transportation, especially before things like boats and trains were invented. However, the rivers that early humans settled around were very different from one another. The Tigris and Euphrates rivers in Mesopotamia were even different from each other. The Tigris has a greater volume than the Euphrates, and was more prone to floods. Because of this, the Euphrates was the main source for the Sumerian irrigation systems. All the same, the Tigris was essential. Its greater bulk is caused in part by its higher silt content, which, after floods, allowed the Sumerians to farm. Despite their usefulness, these rivers were harsh to the new inhabitants of “the land between the rivers”. In Egypt, it was a different story. The Nile river was kind to them, with scheduled floods that left behind the rich soil
Some of the first civilizations are made up of societies that share qualities and have differences. The similarities and differences are what bring them together, and separate them. The Indus River valley and Sumer are the same way, they have similarities that make them close and differences that make them unique. There are many similarities and differences between these two. The Indus River Valley and Sumer have differences between the two such as, religion, political, and their language. They also share many similarities such as, economics, artistics, and social classes.
One main similarity is the Roman empire, in the Mediterranean region, and the Hang dynasty, in East Asia, had an overextended population due to nomadic people which diminished the amount of available resources as well as the authority of the central government. One main difference involves the Roman empire where the nomadic people were able to create their own kingdoms first controlling the empire and then being diminished, whereas in the Hang dynasty the nomadic people assimilated to the Chinese culture at the start without altering the political systems.
The three early civilizations; the Mesopotamians, the Hebrews, and the Greeks, believed in different deities. All of their gods were all similar yet very different from one another. The Mesopotamian and Greek civilizations were polytheistic, believing in many gods. The Hebrew civilizations were monotheistic, believing in only one god. Mesopotamians relationship with their gods, was all about serving their gods. In fact the gods created humans to serve them. The gods gave there people laws through King Hammurabi. Mesopotamian gods were also very forgiving. For after destroying much of the world during a flood, they let a man survive. After it was done the gods realized their mistakes. The Hebrew civilizations relationships with their god were
When most people think of ancient China and India, very few similarities come to mind. China is thought of as Asia, while India is the Middle East.
