Pacific Ocean Navigation Islands Genetic Distribution Polynesian Flood Hotu Matua Legend Easter Island Rapanui HLA Gene Pool History DNA Chromosome Recombination Norwegian Study Research Erik Thorsby University Oslo Norway Biology Human Sea Travel South America Thor Heyerdahl Theories

Genetic researcher Erik Thorsby of the University of Oslo has determined that Thor Heyerdahl was right, that some of the earliest settlers of Easter Island (Rapanui) in the southeast Pacific were from South America, born out by his recent study that HLA genes in the population of Easter Island reflect genetic recombination, shuffling of genes from South America with those of the ancient navigators from the west to Easter Island, the Polynesians, their most ancient ancestor Hotu Matua who sailed there after his people’s homeland was consumed by the sea, when the ice age ended circa 1500 b.c.

The mystery to mainstream scientists is how those ancients navigated all over the world 4,000 years ago, they don’t acknowledge this cartographic methodology explained in article #2 at so they will still say that the ancient navigators to Easter Island basically got lucky, landing on that tiny dot in the vast Pacific many times through the centuries from land thousands of miles away, quite a feat, and impossible really I think you can see without the method explained in the link, explaining the lengths of the ancient units of measure such as the cubit and olympic foot.

I hope you refer Erik Thorsby and the faculty at the University of Oslo to this ancient mapping method, so that they can facilitate greater understanding of these “mysterious” ancient sea voyages, vindicating Thor Heyerdahl in the process, both men representing Norway well in the study of real ancient history, the Vikings having been great navigators too perhaps by the method in the link, for after all the ancient scandic measures such as the faln and miln were also earth commensurate measures, like the cubit and the olympic foot.  Read on here
