My questions are numerous on this topic.
It is such a remarkable thing, this Old World..
Not pertaining so much to the idea but the mystery behind it.
I often wonder how much was actually hidden from the public.
Or, for instance, what was given to the Smithsonian, only never to be seen again.
That doesn't bum me out...it enrages me.
Why or who would have such an ulterior agenda as to hide the truth from the public?
It's obvious there was a huge ancient civilization on this continent.
Between the burial mounds, the effigy mounds and the solar/lunar earthworks...it's clear.
Some of which are still right in front of our eyes.
But why did our history books only tell us very little about it?
Why were the natives considered to be an enemy?
Was it to promote the idea of Manifest Destiny and the natives destruction?
Did the Catholic Church secretly fund and hide the entire mission? (my speculation and theory)
I believe that men were sent here to destroy the "Old World" to make way for the "New World".
Which is why you never hear much about native history anymore in education classes.
The gov't has developed their Department of Education to take care of any truths.
But what was the reason behind it all?
What were they trying to hide?
I better not ask too much, or I may disappear too.
Good thread SLAYER.
Right up my alley.
