I do hope that is a bad joke & that you aren't serious, because if you are serious, you are horribly ignorant. Of course America does indeed have a
history, just like any other area of land on this rock, going far further back than just when Europeans began plundering it. If we're able to examine
other areas of the planet & delve into those histories, don't you think peeling back America's onion layers of habitation are just as worthy of
study? Is so much as suggesting so some sort of faux pas now?
I, for one, find these findings fascinating. We were so sure the Clovis people were alone for so long that it's an eye-opener to realize that was
probably quite wrong. I'm wondering if the 2 peoples ever crossed paths. It's possible that they may have, given the range of the Clovis. Could
either have influenced the other in some way? Not just in possible tools, but culturally, too. If they did interact, what might one have borrowed from
the other & held on to? We may never know, but it's still fascinating to ponder. Ancient America is a lost chapter of Earth's history. It might not
be as fascinating to others as say, Sumeria, or Gobekli Tepe, but it's still a part of human
history nonetheless. I'm grateful for whatever
lost tidbits of our distant past we recover, it's part of all of us.
