Mainstream scientists have been saying that the ancient seafarers of the Pacific, who built megalithic complexes across from Asia to South and Central America, were the Lapita (t not d) people, supposedly so named because of the telltale pottery which they left behind, but the very essence of their navigational savvy dictates that they were the Lapida (with a p not t), as the lapida was the keelboard on ancient Central American sailing vessels, and so Lapida people it is, not Lapita.
I suppose mainstream scientists haven’t made the connection, but since the ancient Ciguare people of Costa Rica buried their dead in graves designed in cigar-shaped ceremonial burial gardens, with stone lapida replicas as the coverings or headstones on the graves, you can see that these ancients from circa 2000 B.C. were navigators par excellence, and buried their dead to “navigate” in their celestial afterlife, as believed by many ancient cultures, such as the Egyptians, Norse, and Cambodjans.
They navigated with devices such as Maui’s Tanawa, which allowed them to triangulate their positions by the movement of the stars as they predictably shift from year to year along the horizon because of precession (see article #2 at IceAgeCivilizations.com), but mainstream scientists have yet to embrace this finding, so they are “still at a loss” as to how those ancients, way back then, were such sophisticated celestial navigators of the high seas.
I just ran across a blog by a guy saying he’s going back to the Phillipines to help his family select a gravestone for a deceased family member, and guess what they call it? That’s right, a lapida stone, small world, by ancient navigation. The ocean was not a barrier to the ancients, it was their highway, to travel thousands of miles in a matter of weeks, hauling cargo, new settlers, mining tools, you see.
And how ’bout http://genesisveracityfoundation.com?
