Beliefs of ConfucianismThe major belief that there is a heavenis now impossible becuase there isn't an emporer in China anymore. Due to this, they believe that there is no god to worship to for confucianism, so the most modern Chinese people worship various Daoist and Buddhist deities and their ancestors now.The Confucianism beliefs most Chinese still hold to include the ideas of harmony, obedience to parents and authority, that people should be trained and forced to behave "properly" in their roles, and an idea of reciprocity (do to others as they do to you whether good or bad).
