Almost everybody except the textbook writers know that Christopher Columbus was certainly not the first mariner to have sailed across the ocean to the Americas. From the Sinclair brothers with the Zeno Maps in the 1300′s to Nova Scotia (New Scotland), to the Vikings, to St. Brendan the Navigator circa 700 a.d., back to the Romans in South America, and on back to the Hebrews, Canaanites, and Libyans in North America, and the Shang mariners having helped found the ancient Olmec civilization in Mesoamerica, these all surely proven to have sailed to the Americas even millennia before Columbus, unthinkable to the darwinists.
So why is this overwhelming evidence ignored by mainstream academia? It’s because they want us to believe that all the people in the Americas when Columbus arrived were descendants of cavemen who had crossed the landbridge between Siberia and Alaska during the Ice Age, for if they admit transoceanic navigation millennia before Columbus, then they would be forced to admit that the Table of Nations in the Bible can explain the peopling of all the world within centuries, thus destroying their darwinian paradigm, rendering the Bible the true history which it is.
The ancient Mexicans said that their ancestors had sailed from across the eastern ocean, their sea god Atlanteoltl, and Olmec statues look distinctly oriential, Shang dynastry of China; there are Libyan, Ogham, Hebrew, and Canaanite scripts etched in stone in many locations of North America, yet all ignored by mainstream academics, it’s a travesty. And now we even know how the ancients navigated precisely, by measuring time, the slow wobble rate of the earth’s axis against the backdrop of the stars explained here http://genesisveracityfoundation.com/earth-measure-geometry, so please inform the ignorant “elites,” now hiding from the truth.
