    "New archaeological evidence suggests that America was first discovered by Stone Age people from Europe – 10,000 years before the Siberian-originating ancestors of the American Indians set foot in the New World.

    A remarkable series of several dozen European-style stone tools, dating back between 19,000 and 26,000 years, have been discovered at six locations along the US east coast. Three of the sites are on the Delmarva Peninsular in Maryland, discovered by archaeologist Dr Darrin Lowery of the University of Delaware. One is in Pennsylvania and another in Virginia. A sixth was discovered by scallop-dredging fishermen on the seabed 60 miles from the Virginian coast on what, in prehistoric times, would have been dry land."

    Well, we knew it was just a matter of time before "new evidence" showed that whites discovered America.

    Und der Katze sagt:

    (1) The American continent is just where it's always been, allowing for a few meters of continental drift, I suppose. I believe the concept of "discovering" America, is just a bit ethnocentric.

    (2) And how do you prove these proto-European people were actually "white?"

    (3) Define "white."

    America was a piece of SAND, Europeans devised a means to enlarge it into a nation. : (
