A Soviet Historian said today that Christopher Columbus hoodwinked the world 467 years ago because he knew all along where America was.

The historian, identified only as Tyspernik, a lecturer at the Kazakh Pedagogic Institute, was quoted by the Moscow radio as saying he had discovered a secret letter from King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain to Columbus in which they decided to whitewash reality and pretend that Columbus had discovered a new world of riches.

Actually, Tyspernik said, Columbus already knew the location of the Antilles, where he made his landfall on October 11, 1492, and merely dressed up his discovery story to make colonization more attractive to Spaniards.

Im 100% sure he knew it.

From the article:

Quote

For those lucky enough not to have grown up in the Cold War, Beach will break this gently. A lot of arrant nonsense came out of Soviet institutes of higher education. Typically, these would be spun in one off reports in the Soviet newspaper Pravda (‘Truth’), picked up by the western media and then allowed to die their death when no one was able to follow up the story. You couldn’t send an email back then to Soviet academics. Hell, you couldn’t even get on the phone and letters sent were invariably opened before being delivered.
There is no follow up for this story and that is surely the proof that nothing substantial was found: hacking away at an American national myth would have given the Soviets great satisfaction, we need be sure that they had no self constraint in that. The Kazakh Pedagogic Institute seems to be the Kazakh State University (founded 1928). We have been unable to find any trace of Tyspernik and no one at Strange History is holding their breath.

It is known Columbus met some Inuit in Glasgow, Scotland.

These Inuit had drifted off course and ended up in Scotland.

Whether confirmed or not, he did spent time in iceland. and at this time the greenland norse settlements were on their last legs (settlements that traded with iceland - settlements that had been exploring and trading with north america for nearly 500 years. so... :whistle: ). He knew there was land out there. Did he know how big it was? Probably not. Be he knew there was something out there...

I'm fairly sure that Cristobal wouldn't have sailed away from Spain if he wasn't sure that something was out there. Not sure that should be surprising to anyone.
