i think the native americans discovered america first . so the europeans "discovering" it seems like a moot point.

Aside from the Native Americans still running around killing each other with rocks tied onto sticks......it was still a new place for the europeans....so when we say..."the vikings, or whoever discovered America"....we obviously mean that the Europeans discovered America for the first time in their culture or history.

You know what? 4,200 years is a long time...long enough for Chinese explorers to discover America, colonize it, then forget it exists. Are there Native American paintings or artifacts before this period?

Well there is also thr theory that thr Chinese were the first to discover Australia many many years ago, so why not Anerica as well!

Columbus himself never claimed to have discovered America. He was working of Maps that showed North America as an Island. He was simply trying to circle around it far enough to get India. His biggest failure is that he mistook the Caribbean for the East Indies and until his death would never let anybody tell him other wise.

Yes. By far. Mummies in Peru are dated to 12,000 years ago. "Burial" Mounds in Pennsylvania are dated to 6-8000 years ago. In Southern Oregon there is evidence up to 30,000 years old, and confirmed evidence of at least 15,000.

Okie dokie. Guess they've been there since the continents separated. That or they travelled down from Russia, into Canada and into the Americas during the last Ice Age.
