    Nobody except 1 single group EVER invented an alphabet. Not China, not Europeans, not Americans.

    The higher-level concept of ideographs far surpasses the invention of alphabets.

    They invented an ideographic writing system, which is much more versatile and more difficult to create

    The Chinese writing system is ideographic so they don't need an alphabet.  Imagine a billion people speaking dozens of languages and they all use the same ideographs and everyone, no matter which language they speak, can read and understand it.  Imagine that!  It's amazing.  That would never be possible with an alphabetic language.
