It is amazingly much evidence of explorers of the atlantic oceans and how they've been visiting eachother's cultures and started business and trading routes, and settled down in non-native continents, and how such explorations, trading routes and contact have been ongoing for thousands of years. I'm working on a new documentary on my American Atlantis research linked to in my previous post, that will feature large amounts of evidence for such travels and contact, as well as what and where Atlantis really was and how it was connected to different later civilizations on opposite sides of oceans and different continents.

For some evidence and information on all this read my old American Atlantis thread , its fairly filled with evidence and information.

Icelandic Spar is not magical, it is calcite, I have a crystal at home that certainly does not perform the accuracy described in the article. In fact, nothing at all on a cloudy day.

Why Vikings would embark on a 3 month long journey to somewhere that they did not even knew existed, is way beyond me. The stores they would have had to carry would have sunk their longships before leaving port... the whole idea is just a romantic notion, with no factual base to support it..

Its called conquest, and you must be completely naive to believe it to be a "romantic notion"....being that the wikings and the Norse were known for their sailing and ship building prowess, see low-draft long boats. Please research something before you make a statement like:

You idiots should stop claiming that the Vikings or Christopher Columbus who was known to be gay discovered North America.  The continent was already occupied and settled for thousands of years before the arrival of the Vikings or Christopher Columbus.  That is why when Columbus arrived, he wasn't greeted by Vikings, instead he was greeted by the native people of North America who he most likely on purpose gave the wrong names as "Indians".  The historical facts that cannot be changed are done so using cleverly veiled and hidden in plain sight lies that can be easily overlooked by zombie minded sheeple who no longer have control over their minds.  

This is the danger that can happen to whole civilizations even in modern times. Your whole history can be erased and rewritten by someone more clever than you are.  So next time you ask yourself who discovered the Americas - do not automatically default to the lie that is being forced down into your minds by sinister forces who have done more to undermine the natural cosmic processes that are the supreme laws of nature with their own versions which rely on lies to appear real and true.  

A great lie has been forced upon you as a species.  And because this lie was seeded into your world thousands of years ago, you have come to accept it as being the truth.  

The truth is that this world you call your reality is not really the true world.  Your actual waking state is your sleep state. Your minds are more awake when you are asleep.  Focus inward and seek the truth within. The God realm is inside you and not in the skies above.  The gateway to the real world has been hidden from you to keep you here in this state of slavery for eternity.

Well. it is evident that everyone is well aware of the natives or the "indians" as you say.
The discussion is the 1st contact of the rest of the world (majorly the vikings/Scandinavians, asians etc) with the Americas. The discussion is not about any zombie minded civilization etc.
The forum is for discussing ancient mysteries and not metaphysics (the brainwashing truth within **** etc).

Constitutive Criticism: It is a closed mind that refers to others as Idiots or Sheepole.  If you have all the answers why do you name call?  Spread you message if you like yet with some sort of compassion.  Answer questions even if they insult your level of understanding?  If you are unwilling to do this why are you on this forum?  This is a discussion board after all.  It appears that you wish not to do that (discuss) but rant and spit out your commanding knowledge.

I believe the switch to the Gregorian calendar was due to the Julian calendar being in error. :whistle:

Quote

Wikipedia Article
The Gregorian calendar, also known as the Western calendar, or Christian calendar, is the internationally accepted civil calendar. It was introduced by Pope Gregory XIII, after whom the calendar was named, by a decree signed on 24 February 1582, a papal bull known by its opening words Inter gravissimas. The reformed calendar was adopted later that year by a handful of countries, with other countries adopting it over the following centuries. The motivation for the Gregorian reform was that the Julian calendar assumes that the time between vernal equinoxes is 365.25 days, when in fact it is presently almost exactly 11 minutes shorter. The error between these values accumulated at the rate of about three days every four centuries, resulting in the equinox occurring on March 11 (an accumulated error of about 10 days) and moving steadily earlier in the Julian calendar at the time of the Gregorian reform. Since the Spring equinox was tied to the celebration of Easter, the Roman Catholic Church considered that this steady movement in the date of the equinox was undesirable.

The Gregorian calendar reform contained two parts, a reform of the Julian calendar as used up to Pope Gregory's time, together with a reform of the lunar cycle used by the Church along with the Julian calendar for calculating dates of Easter. The reform was a modification of a proposal made by the Calabrian doctor Aloysius Lilius (or Lilio). Lilius' proposal included reducing the number of leap years in four centuries from 100 to 97, by making 3 out of 4 centurial years common instead of leap years: this part of the proposal had been suggested before by, among others, Pietro Pitati. Lilio also produced an original and practical scheme for adjusting the epacts of the moon for completing the calculation of Easter dates, solving a long-standing difficulty that had faced proposers of calendar reform.

The Gregorian calendar modified the Julian calendar's regular cycle of leap years, years exactly divisible by four, including all centurial years, as follows:
Every year that is exactly divisible by four is a leap year, except for years that are exactly divisible by 100; the centurial years that are exactly divisible by 400 are still leap years. For example, the year 1900 is not a leap year; the year 2000 is a leap year.

In addition to the change in the mean length of the calendar year from 365.25 days (365 days 6 hours) to 365.2425 days (365 days 5 hours 49 minutes 12 seconds), a reduction of 10 minutes 48 seconds per year, the Gregorian calendar reform also dealt with the past accumulated difference between these lengths. Between AD 325 (when the Roman Catholic Church thought the First Council of Nicaea had fixed the vernal equinox on 21 March), and the time of Pope Gregory's bull in 1582, the vernal equinox had moved backward in the calendar, until it was occurring on about 11 March, 10 days earlier. The Gregorian calendar therefore began by skipping 10 calendar days, to restore March 21 as the date of the vernal equinox.

Because of the Protestant Reformation, however, many Western European countries did not initially follow the Gregorian reform, and maintained their old-style systems. Eventually other countries followed the reform for the sake of consistency, but by the time the last adherents of the Julian calendar in Eastern Europe (Russia and Greece) changed to the Gregorian system in the 20th century, they had to drop 13 days from their calendars, due to the additional accumulated difference between the two calendars since 1582.

The Gregorian calendar continued the previous year-numbering system (Anno Domini), which counts years from the traditional date of the nativity, originally calculated in the 6th century and in use in much of Europe by the High Middle Ages. This year-numbering system is the predominant international standard today.

It is an interesting theory. They would have had to have used a particular type of calcite and then it would have probably been cut and polished in some specific manner to work.
I would like to see some experiments with the various types of possible "Sunstones" to determine if it is indeed possible.  :tu:

It's been proven and acknowledged that Vikings settled for a time in Newfoundland. And it wasn't a one shot trip but rather a progression. They settled Iceland, from there settled Greenland, and from there settled Newfoundland. However they were long gone by the time 15th century Europeans showed up.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Labrador Island...I think...lol...I am positive the evidence was found and validated to something like the 11th or 12th century.  Roundhouse/longhouse foundations and iron and bronze artifacts... but honestly, I forget specifically what part, but I know it was one of the three....I am inclined to think it was Newfoundland/Nova Scotia and from there they went south into "Vineland" aka...land of grapes and wine....which would/could be north-eastern USA but we still don't have a collective agreement on where "Vineland" was.

No... it's pretty cut and dry and archaeologically proven that the Nordics hit the east coast of North America a couple centuries before Columbus did... but....who wants to pay to re-print all of those text books?

Side note...there is some (emphasis on "some") evidence that the Asians may have hit the west coast of north America even earlier...anchor stones (typical of Chinese "junks") off the coast of California seemingly date to the 8th or 9th century....nifty eh?....no more proof than that though...very cool stuff though.

Nice post, I just want to inform you that the name "Vineland" correctly spelled is Vinland, and the vin part of the name in the old nordic language of the vikings means meadow, vin means meadow, "meadowland" litterary translated. Historians here in Norway think they called it that, since the meadows were attractive grassland for the vikings farm-animals.
Cheers,
Nordmann61.

It could have meant a couple of other things, like "Land of Hope", or "Land of Friends":
