"Native American" NOT Indian
Really? What an interesting statement. Who would you have rather stumbled across it, and why would that have made any subsequent events very much
Or are you fantasizing that without Columbus and co., the entire continent would remain in splendid, idyllic isolation even today, and if a Google
Earth user from somewhere else on the planet occasionally spun the globe the wrong way by accident and found themselves looking down at Tennessee or
Brazil, they would think "wow that place looks green," then dismiss it and zoom in on Amsterdam?
For that matter, why stop at wishing Columbus never happened? Perhaps everything would have been much better for everyone all around if no one had
crossed the Bering Straights into the "New World" all those years ago.
