Wow, I am not sure if this news article or the "World Civilization Research Association" is actually trolling or not.
I am quite baffled by their linguistic claims, seems to me just cherry-picking co-incidences.
There are too many verbal and structural differences between English & Chinese languages, to even call them similar.
I know because me and my family have actual experiences with both languages.
For example, the Chinese pinyin system is drastically different than the English alphabet system.
I'd like to see those Chinese comment on the origins of Georgian, Armenian, Greek, Hebrew, and Arabic, that would be interesting to watch.

He said Europeans “felt ashamed” due to the “fact” there was no history in Europe before the 15th century, compared to China. In an attempt to paper over this historical humiliation, the Europeans “fabricated” stories about ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman civilizations – all based on Chinese history.
Hmmm...Where do they think peanuts come from? Corn? Manioc?
Plus, Egyptian isn't even remotely European. Will they be denying the Mesopotamians next? The Kieven Rus? The Vikings? Celts? Islam? Renaissance? Byzantine?
I'd like to see them denying that Black Death existed and that Europe was a complete Dark Ages for centuries, then claim that China first discovered America, that Lao Tzu was actually the Hebrew Abraham, that the pyramids are stupas, that Constantinople is a Buddhist temple (as you can see, the domes are a clear indicator of pagodas and stupas), and that the big Olmec heads are actually the faces of Chinese court officials (the tops are clearly bureaucratic hats).
