Who drew them and how?
On seeing the first of his seven old Asian maps in an antique shop in Korea in 1972 my father, Baptist missionary Dr. Hendon M. Harris, Jr., immediately associated it with the Shan Hai Jing, a Chinese classic reportedly written 2200 B.C. and quoted throughout China’s history. The Shan Hai Jing told of Chinese travel to the four corners of the world including a beautiful land far to the east of China named Fu Sang. It described Fu Sang’s terrain and animals in detail. Father realized that the map showed the fabled Fu Sang where America is today.
Father contended the maps written in classical Chinese indicated that by 2200 B.C. Chinese came to America by sea and were the founding fathers of American Indians. He believed that early Chinese and other Asians made many subsequent trips to the New World.
Determining the truth about an event in history is like trying to piece together a crime scene. I began to see one common thread. Many of the people who presented ideas similar to my father’s have faced rejection or hostility from others who were not ready to re-examine history.
One television newsman asked me “If this is true, why have I never heard this before?” Just remember that because you never heard something before does not keep it from being true. Which one of us knows everything there is to know?

Is the Library of Congress Hiding Information about Chinese Beating Columbus?
“the biggest cover-up in the history of mankind is the history of mankind itself”
"The Phoenicians landed in the Americas thousands of years before the manufactured ‘photo opportunity’ better known as the journey of Christopher Columbus.
"The Phoenicians landed there in ancient times and what appeared to be Egyptian (Phoenician) or Oriental remains were found in the Grand Canyon in the early years of this century, although the knowledge of this has been suppressed. The official story that Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas is ludicrous. "
The Biggest Secret
"Perhaps the most amazing suppression of all is the excavation of an Egyptian tomb by the Smithsonian itself in Arizona. The Smithsonian, however, claims to have absolutely no knowledge of the discovery or its discoverers. "They deny any knowledge of it..."

There is strong evidence that the Chinese were in California a really long time ago. This map represents a before Atlantis world. This would mean that Atlantis was actually around before the Ice age, possibly these people originated the map. The Ancient tales of the Gods may have originated from a very ancient race of beings in my mind. At that time they could have mated with man to increase our knowledge.

The other possibility is that those maps are fake. Even very old fakes. The market in antiquities was thriving back in the days of Julius Caesar - it isn't anything new. In the Medieval days in was really very strong.
I don't know, basically. But i will admit to it! Not sure what but something sets the old alarm bells ringing at this one, which is strange because i genuinely do believe in ancient sea faring, which basically precludes some in depth knowledge of navigation and, therefore, the position of things around the globe. But something about these maps doesn't sit right, if you know what i mean........
