Do a little reading on China's fleets which were disbanded and destroyed after the eunuch's took control of China.

China had been all over the world for quite some time before Europe...according to some.


Yup, the book is 1421 by Gavin Menzies. The evidence is somewhat circumstantial but fascinating none the less. He claims the Portugese/Columus had a map before setting sail that most likely came from the Chinese. Who knows though.

I was wondering if other people from the Americas at that time, had journeyed across the seas themselves,providing possible details and trading imformation with polynesian sea travellers.Maybe we need to look at it from the other side as well.Nordic sea and coastal knowledge at this time is well established.Just thought id throw something in.peace.

What i find really intriguing about that map is that it does seem to show part of Alaska. To the best of my knowledge, no European explorers even knew of Alaska at the time.

Map must be partly based off of Chinese maps is the only explanation I can think of. Suprised there isn't any West cost of North America though.

Maybe these maps were based on knowledge gained by earlier traveller to America. They have found 5000 year-old blond-haired mummies at the center of Asia; the center of Australia has a high concentration of blond Aboriginals; and at the center of N. America they found the blond-haired Mandan indians in 1804. Take a look at this video.

Wasn't North America first spotted in around 900 AD?

Suggest you research the symptoms of malnourishment among dark-haired people.

Anangu kids aren't born blonde. Plus, if you look at that pic again, the girl has definite dark roots.

Plus, a single photo is proof of nothing. Only 50% of the kids in that photo were blonde. Not to mention they clearly weren't born yesterday.

Even the "arcs" weren't 120 degrees in all cases and the "plateaus" were far from it. The Olgas is no platau, it's a mountain range.

Yes, it was the voyages of the Admiral Zheng He and his massive fleet of 317 ships with 28k soldiers. The claim is somewhat controversial, but I personally believe it was possible.

Here is a wiki entry on the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea along with a modern map which has the locations described marked down. The greeks really had gotten around by the 3rd century.

Humanity has forgotten more than we give ourselves credit for. I'm not saying that there were well-consolidated empires of global reach or anything like that in distant history, but I do believe that the technological gap covered over the past 2000 years only represents a few hundred years worth of development- we had to make rediscoveries at several points in history. If humanity never lost any of the ground that it gained in terms of knowledge and advancement, Columbus would probably have ended up being an astronaut, and Neil Armstrong... i dunno, maybe he would have been a time traveller- hard to say how far behind we are at this point because of the setbacks our civilizations have faced along the way.

I have no problem believing, if the Greeks could get as far as China 2000 years ago, that the Chinese and others probably got to the Western hemisphere more than once prior to 1492. But, in history as in academia, it's publish or perish- if you can't get the word out and make your discovery stick, you become a footnote.
