Laughable is the notion that Christopher Columbus in 1492 was the first to have sailed to the Americas, because the Zeno family (Antonio, Carlos, and Nicolo) of Venice had maps drawn a hundred years before Columbus showing the accurate longitude of Estotiland (Nova Scotia) across the north Atlantic, showing Greenland too, that landmass on the maps without the current mile-deep icepack, the source maps logically then for the Zeno maps having been very ancient, actually drawn early in the ice age before the snow and ice had built up on Greenland, with the very accurate geography of the mountain ranges on the Zeno maps now confirmed by modern remote sensing devices.
The Sinclair clan led by Henry the Earl of Orkney Island commissioned the venetian Antonio Zeno to navigate their fleet across the north Atlantic to settle Nova Scotia 50 years before Columbus, the Micmac indians of Nova Scotia memorializing their landing and neighborly treatment of them, and the Zeno Narrative records that Brendan the Navigator of Galway had sailed to the Americas almost a millenium before that time, so why do the darwinists avoid these facts of history? They sheepishly don’t like to talk about this ancient transoceanic navigation because it renders more than plausible that the Americas were in reality settled by ocean navigators by and large, not by proto cavemen having trudged across the Bering Land bridge from Siberia to the Americas.
The norman Sinclair clan’s famed Rosslyn Chapel near Edinburg has a stone cript with etchings on a wall of an accurate longitude grid, and above the grid, rhomboid (diamond shaped) lozenges, four of them, reflecting respectively the exact angles of the summer and winter solstices at Jerusalem (flat diamond shape), and above it, at the Rosslyn location, a less flat diamond shape reflecting the exact angles there, and above it, of Orkney island, and above it, reflecting the location of the Sinclair clan’s ancient homeland in Norway; Normans they were, the men of the north. So how did those ancients surely measure longitude so accurately, that knowledge having been necessitated by very accurate timekeeping? They measured the very slow wobble rate of the earth’s axis (see article #2 at http://iceagecivilizations.com). For the big biblical overview of history, see http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.
