I remember studying this in college 30 years ago -- there was ample evidence that the first Americans came here 25-30,000 years ago or earlier. Some speculative evidence was as long as 40-50,000 years, but the earlier migrations may have died out or any genetic evidence disappeared through assimilation. I thought the 15,000 year date was dismissed years ago.
