The Facts[edit]

Some of the great Civilizations in the world since ancient and middle ages has a inventions which is written in the books of today, we see how these civilization are being famous for its contributions in terms of what they invent and discovered,

but there is so many Nations have invented and discover that we using today, some of this had evolved due to Modifications by the powerful ones, these are not written because of being left behind by the Powerful and influential nationalities and Culture Sphere's of First World Countries, eg. Europe, Japan,China,Germany,France,Arab world and Americans

And forget the pioneer cultures which is neither smaller, lesser influence or a Third world countries, (like The Philippines), Filipinos are one of the most-Creative cultures that you may known for since the ancient past, Some of the Filipinos are known for what they contribute to the world, specially about the Karaoke which entertains the world, these only ruined because of Foreign Cultures that influenced by the Dominators, and their REALY_BAD influence that they gave is the Colonial mentality, these concept has ruined the Filipino Culture specially a Man which is a native in the land are patronising foreigners rather than have a nationalistic taught of ideas . they are the rust of societies, which they trying to tell that Filipinos have no creativity and just dependent to other civilizations,

well this is a Free=Content Knowlage to inform not only non-filipinos but also Filipinos that we can or we are the leaders and pioneers in terms of creativity and craftsmanship's and inventions not the classic taughts that we are the Nation of Servants and Dependent . be proud this is a factual basis ! neither we denied, crab mentality has originated in somewhere and not to us! i remember what Imelda Marcos told as i read some old magazine in our dusty library during high school she told about the Barong Tagalog and Baro't Saya which is known for Elegance,, and i quote We don't follow the trend WE SET THE TREND!.

This is really bad Filipino Fiction-Move to Delete[edit]

There are a lot of items on here that seem to be very misplaced, misguided, and non-educational.

The first thing that hits you as off about this article is all of the "disputed" content of all the foreigners "stealing" inventions or discoveries from Filipinos who "really created them". If it is globally accepted as a fact that someone else is the credit for something, wikipedia is not the place to play conspiracy theory.

Secondly, it appears that about 90% of the persons and topics in this article have no citations or related wikipedia links. The links that do exist in this article, give credit to someone else by a different name that is not Filipino. Clearly demonstrating a lack in the quality and validity of this content.

In the intro it says a Filipino invention includes people "descended from the Philippines". One cannot be descended from a country.

Barong Tagalog. You cannot "invent" a shirt. Besides this, it is from Mexico.

Baybayin and Tagalog. You cannot invent a language or writing system. These develop over many years as a natural phenomenon.

Modular building was first developed by Sears, Roebuck and Company in 1895. Edgardo Vasquez was not on the payroll.

"Julian Banzon researched methods of producing alternative fuels."- Not the only person to do that. Also research is not an invention.

"Doctor Benjamin Cabrera has developed innovations in drug treatments against diseases caused by mosquitoes and agricultural soil."- Like what?

"Amador Muriel is a mathematician was known due to his significant works and contributions to theoretical physics. He has made new kinetic equation which is essential for discovering problems on a statistical method that is non-equilibrium."-Can't we really do better than this? The English is so bad it is barely intelligible.

Gregorio Y. Zara did not create the video phone. It was John Logie Baird. As stated in the link.

I'm sure Filipinos did not invent pottery, clothing, spears, swords, nor the computer chip.

Karaoke IS Japanese. Invented by Daisuke Inoue.

The yo-yo is from Greece.

Raymundo Favila did not "invent math" in 1979. Math has been around hundreds of years. It's unlikely that he discovered math for the first time and taught it to Filipinos. Are we to believe prior to 1979, Filipinos has no concept of numbers and equations? On top of that, even if was the first Filipino to learn how to count, he would have learned mathematics from abroad. That is not "discovering" mathematics.

You also cannot "discover" a "food technique". What does that even mean?

Diosdado Banatao created a computer chip that makes computers "a lot faster" and a "little bit faster" this sounds very un-scientific.

Games are not a "discovery" nor an "invention". Neither are sports.

I could go on. However, I'm too tired to do an exhaustive debunking at the present. It is clear this article is entirely, or almost entirely fictional. As there is virtually no real information in this article that is salvageable, I move the article be removed speedily. CheersPresidentbalut (talk) 12:34, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Good thing[edit]

good thing that there is a someone who wrote this article the Filipinos are the Pioneers in some of the inventios like Moon Buggy and Karaoke ! i support this notion Thanks Philipandrew to all Filipinos Be Patriotic

Thanks jane07 (talk) 10:34, September 2013 (UTC)

Neither of those are in any way related to the Philippines.
The moon buggy created by a German named Wernher von Braun for the United States.
Karaoke by Daisuke Inoue. Japanese. Presidentbalut (talk) :03:30, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Scientists aren't inventions[edit]

There's a list of scientists embedded here, and few of them are associated with a specific invention. Does anyone fancy splitting this to a List of Filipino scientists? Is that impossibly POV? Are there any similar lists for other nationalities? I don't think it belongs in this article, but I'm not seeking to arbitrarily delete it. Andy Dingley (talk) 10:35, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

We must showing abilities[edit]

This is why Filipino don't get serious because the filipinos don't show the ability of our culture to create and not supporting it, lately i wish that this wiki go an article about Filipinos , i only hear japs, British, China, French, Germans,italians and Americans cvan invent and recognized these Colonialism take away this and forgot our abilities and change it that these foreigners are the superiors of these world , so thanks that there is available now !

This article is garbage and all lies. Filipinos are always making up lies about themselves and pretending they are something they are not. Filipinos have invented, discovered, and contributed virtually NOTHING to the world. But so what? Who cares? Do you need to? Most of Africa, and the rest of SE Asia can not claim fame to anything. Germans have created most of the modern world. Science, technology, philosophy, politics, business, engineering, medicine. Next would be Japan. Then followed by a few other nations. Such as France, Belgium, Switzerland, Russia, etc. In stead why don't you Filipinos be proud of something REAL? I am not sure what. But you know. There has to be something. You should destroy your factories there, go back to province and live in nipa huts, and raise your girls to be mahinhin like they used to be. At least you would have something to brag about. But lying and making up things does you no good. You should be ashamed. And for anyone mentioning racism? "Filipino" is not a race. Also, my family is Filipino. I want them to grow up proud and with value. Not shameful and lying about the Philippines. (talk) 18:37, 2 October 2014 (UTC)

Where you come from?? from another time .. i suggest you go back to the caves (P.Andrew (sgd) ✉ 08:55, 5 October 2014 (UTC))

the a product cannot become a reality without patterns , and Filipinos are the pioneers of the things listed , and when you say You should destroy your factories there, go back to province and live in nipa huts its kind of harsh statement it is look like Nigga, Go back to africa (when a white man acting superior against black) and it means you trying to say that filipinos are just a piece of crap without intelligence. and RESEARCH BRO!!!thats why we are always left behind due to the lack of support !

Filipino Abilities[edit]

This article is an Mind opener to The Filipinos like Other nationalities A true Craftsmanship's and Skills We can invent and The real facts ! but this article needs a little improvement and add more latest accounts of inventions Some I saw a Statements of some Anti Pinoy's here that we are no great contributions ,,,

In the intro it says a Filipino invention includes people "descended from the Philippines". One cannot be descended from a country.

idiocity of who wrote that statement!

  • Decended he\she can be decended if the person is a HALF BLOOD ! Foreigners w Filipino decent like Megan Young for example!
  • Pottery has been a Wide Technology in the Early Philippines and it have been proven ! i think this Anti-pinoy User does not know the Philippine History!

You also cannot "discover" a "food technique". What does that even mean?

  • Food techniques are in Grey are Because like my favorite chicken Adobo (which is a Techniques of Preseving meats since there are no Refrigirator in ancient past has been method done by the Filipinos before spaniards come ! it means its discoveries! it is like also how Russians made a Baked milk.

And another food tehniques..

Barong Tagalog. You cannot "invent" a shirt. Besides this, it is from Mexico.

  • the good example For this is The Kimono of Japanese People has a Method invented in 1192 - 1573! The Barong tagalog is designed by the Tagalog people during the pre-modern era!
  • Language can be done by natural phenomenon like Baybayin might, but theirs no clear origin neither it derived from other Bhramic origins but its does not clear, i= dont think its like a mushroom that existed alone ! there must be a briliant Filipino who made this like Hangul of Korea made by King Sejong .

Tagalog language i agree its a natural phenomenon..

  • The karaoke might be improved by Daisuke Inuioe but they never made a good version without the Original Pioneer machine made by

Roberto Del Rosario , Its like Java which comes from c++ but these two comes to C language.

  • The Yoyo might have in greece but their purpose is only for toy! in philippines it used as a fashone weapon/tools for hunting! i convince if its a Tops, which is from romans and greece..
  • About Mathematic's maybee this area are complicated but it can be count on contributions like the Japanese Mathematics!
  • Modular housing system is idea by Edgardo Vasquez in response to the rapid urbanization and poor construction which left many Filipinos homeless in the city but he didn't mentioned becaused of the Powerful Nationalities influence!

Games are not a "discovery" nor an "invention". Neither are sports.

  • Games can be invented like the Yut which invented by Koreans i dont think its like mushroom existed it self alone as i told !

Kingchritian (talk) 5:11, 15 October 2013 (UTC) this article is an Informative and educational this is a mind- opening , but need's more improvement and little purification.

A verry factual an good information but needs a bit improvements . by Stella kim222 (talkcontribs) 05:53,16 October 2013 (UTC)

The Philippines is a country. You cannot be decended from a country as it has no sexual organs. Among other ::things.
Someone with half blood will likely die. I do not understand what you are trying to say here.
As for all the other so-called "Filipino inventions"? We have already established that these were either invented by non-Filipinos, or that they are not inventions at all.
It is not I that is "anti Pinoy" as you say. I am trying to promote the contributions of the Filipino people by accurate knowledge. Making up stories and trolling wikipedia is only attacking Filipinos. Presidentbalut (talk) 17:59, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

Why "born in the Philippines"?[edit]

Why would something partially created or invented by someone born in the Philippines make that thing a "Filipino invention"? Being born in the Philippines does not make one a Filipino. So why would a project they work on magically become "Filipino", if even the person working on it is not Filipino nor in the Philippines? Presidentbalut (talk) 13:07, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

There have been some improvements[edit]

I just wanted to say that, despite the arguments that "Filipinos invented everything in the world and it was stolen by foreigners", I am pleased to see some improvements to the accuracy of this article. I have made a few. Others have done more. There still needs to be more work done, but I am glad it is finally going in the right direction. Presidentbalut (talk) 00:14, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
