  • Native americans

  • No one talks about how us black people was already here

  • The skulls of Africans were found in Brazil that even predate native Americans

    • @Geranamo Free I always enjoy my journey pointing out the fallacies of centrists and those that espouse pseudo science for politically motivated reasons. Thank you, you as well.

    • @macarde10 😂 enjoy your journey

    • @Geranamo Free I also watch other sources of media, that doesn’t mean I consider them actual academic sources for anything scientific. Come now, don’t avoid and ignore my request. It shouldn’t be that hard.

    • @macarde10 CS-tv has you interested enough to watch though right. If you love history 1/4 as much as I do you can follow the information provided in the video. If you do that you will see the first Americans were Afrikaners. If you are one of these Trump people that have a war on math I can’t help you.

    • @Geranamo Free CS-tv isn’t a source, how about the actual studies? Everyone who does actual research, publishes their work. That’s what I’m looking for. Videos sansationamize for profit. CS-tv videos are not being fact checked.

  • Not even gonna mention Abu Bakr the second? he abdicated his throne of Mali to cross the atlantic when he heard of a land to the west. He was succeeded by Mansa Musa when he failed to return

    • He also probably failed to arrive, not only return. Coming from such a large population center as was the Kali empire at the time, his 2000 ships would have been carrying disease. After the arrival of disease, we see representations of smallpox, measles and so on, in the artwork of native Americans. Yet we don’t see this earlier. Even in his ships only has 2 people each, that’s quite a number of individuals. Where armies go, genes will flow. We don’t find those genes. Even if half those ships sank, three Spanish ships carried diseases that began a depopulation event that spread out before the Spanish, through out the americas. Those 2000 ships would have needed food, they had no idea how far another land would be. Wouldn’t it make sense to carry some animals and fruits? Yet none appear in the archaeological record until the arrival of the Spanish.

  • The MONGOLOIDS via the Bering Strait DUH that's day one stuff right there

  • There was also a Portuguese family called the Corte-Reals who reached Labrador 20 years before Columbus did.

    • @Daniel Ke unfortunately, not all media sources fact check.

    • @macarde10 www.thoughtco.com/timeline-of-exploration-1492-1585-104281 This is what threw me off

    • @Daniel Ke generally academic studies or the actual historical papers left by the individual in question. Looking at that Wikipedia page, it also says he arrived in the 16th century to Greenland, not even Labrador. The 16th century would be the 1500s. So where the confusion here? Columbus also never set foot in Labrador, again, where is the mention of that? So your own source places their arrival to North America in 1500, which is the beginning of the 16th century. Columbus arrived in the new world during the 15 th century. My timeline isn’t off. Maybe this is just a misunderstanding of century vs the actual date?

    • @macarde10 Then what to you is a reliable source?

    • @Daniel Ke Wikipedia isn’t a reliable source.

  • Beringians.

  • Discovery is a false claim .. there were people already for many many generations ..

  • didn't mention the presents of vanilla in ancient greece and egypt. it grows in mexico

    • @Carl Larsen basically they point out that vanilla isn’t the lone source of what she found. Vanillin and 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde are created naturally from the oak tree. Oaks are native to the Middle East. If there were ancient trade routes, everyone must remember one thing. Disease. Many old world diseases already existed at the the time of those burials. Where is the disease ridden iconography in the new world, which is seen in the archaeological record after the arrival of the Spanish? Philip J. Spillman, Alan P. Pollnitz, Dimitra Liacopoulos, George K. Skouroumounis, and Mark A. Sefton, “Accumulation of Vanillin during Barrel-Aging of White, Red, and Model Wines,” Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry 45 (1997): 2584-2589. Jose Miguel Oliva, Felica Sáes, Ignacio Ballesteros, Alberto González, Maria José Negro, Paloma Manzanares, and Mercedes Ballesteros, “Effect of Lignocellulosic Degradation Compounds from Steam Explosion Pretreatment on Ethanol Fermentation by Thermotolerant Yeast Kluyveromyces marxianus” in Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals: The Twenty-Fourth Symposium

    • @macarde10 i haven't seen any criticism. i just read an article where vanilla residue was found in ancient pots. if you have a link i would willingly read it. i'm not an archaeologist, just an history buff.

    • Have you bothered to read any of the criticisms of that study? Perhaps look at both sides before just proclaiming that it must be true.

  • This bum couldn't even sail to the right place, yet he has a holiday lmao 😂 sounds about white.

  • How can you discover a land already inhabited by people for thousands of years ?

  • Meanwhile me chilling in India,

  • Chris Columbus be like: “See the line where the sky meets the sea? it calls meeeee...”

  • Here at thanksgiving day

  • I think most of the theories are somewhat credible, except for the Romans one. Romans were horrible seafarers, and most feared the water. Not to mention, they were an empire. If they’d found the America’s, there’s no question they would’ve established some sort of presence there and brought either slaves or native crops back. I think it’s far more likely those artifacts and that ship just washed up there.

  • Now do we mean discovered or stole cause y'all are confusing

  • How do you discover a place someone else already lives in? By that logic I'd love to "discover" my neighbour's back garden. It's really nice.

  • I'm a fan of the Egyptian theory

  • Finally tribal stories and science tell the same story.

  • 6:47 Endorsing this hipotesis, in 1984 a group of five argentinians recreated a possible journey of this kind: cs-tv.org/tv/video-nvK9IoFIW5I.html

  • Who discovered America first? Interesting question. The Israelites were present, so too Romans and Egyptians. I'd say that likely predates the migration of the "Native Americans" whose haplogroups identify them as originating from Siberia.

    • @DezertFox please post your sources so I can review them, since they are a fact. The studies I have do not show that. They do show a distant relation from some 30,000+ years ago to Haplogroup x and Haplogroup q. I look forward to reading your sources.

    • ​ @macarde10 My claims are based on genetic analysis which has found them to possess five primary haplogroups: Three from Siberia, two from Europe. That's a fact one. A Jewish presence among tribes in America is a fact, as one can plainly verify through Chief Joseph Riverwind. As per Ancient Egyptian presence? Do a little research on the hieroglyphs found. Paleo-Hebrew has been found extensively. So too Roman artifacts around north and south America. The Carthaginians sailed extensively in the Atlantic. Fact > emotion. Ende.

    • And yet the oldest of burials, show a clear relation to the indigenous people still living in the Americas. So that makes your claim nothing more than a fairy tale.

  • Anyone going to mention the Jaredites or Nephites?

    • I think the video was to be of, possibly, scientifically based ideas, not religion.

  • I think arabs (andalusians) discovered it first..because even arabians and south americans looks so similar..they don't look like they are from spain or even europe at all..north america..yes..vikings discovered it first..and south america was discovered by arabians..columbus didn't discover anything..they just made some propaganada for him because of his stupid queen

    • @Ehab Elkelbash I believe he sailed the ocean blue. So you must have a problem with me. I see, so you post a claim, I question the validity of it and you run off in a completely different direction, somehow blaming the whole exchange on a man now dead some 500 years. Sounds reasonable.

    • @macarde10 then you can enjoy your day..my problem is with people who believe that columbus did something

    • @Ehab Elkelbash you still haven’t told me what you want topic you would like me to provide sources for. I also never claimed that Columbus was first. Your claim of the moors was very specific. I argue against that. Quit changing the topic.

    • @macarde10 hah sure..evidence on that comlumbus descovered north america first..scandanavia is closer to north america than spain..like it doesn't make any sence..africa is closer to south america..so discovering it would be more reasonable than spain getting in it..think outside of the box..not inside 🤦‍♀️

    • @Ehab Elkelbash again, you’re being vague. I can provide sources for you to read on many things. However, your comment is still vague. What would you like evidence on?

  • على الرغم من انني لم أكمل الفيديو حتى النهاية و لم أفهم الفيديو الى الاحتراف لكني أقول أن كريستوف و الفايكنغ او أيا كان لم يكتشفوا امريكا اولا و انا واثقة أشد الثقة المسلمين هم الذين اكتشفوها اولا و سنعود من جديد و سنعلوا راية الاسلام من جديد ان شاء الله على الرغم من اننا نعيش حملة التطبيع مع اسرائيل لكن سنعود ان شاء الله أي أحد مسلم او عربي يصطف الى جنبي

    • I don't understand

  • 1421: The Year China Discovered America. This is also a book worth reading if you are interested in the subject. I was waiting for you to mention the Chinese, but you haven't so figured you just don't know about it. Well, I'm sure you'll be intrigued.

    • In the fiction section no less.

  • My great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandfather: they forgot about me and my wife

  • The Olmec statues sure look like a lot of the Philippinos I have met in the Philippines

  • There was muslims living on south america before Columbus came. Those escaped from spanish crusaders.

    • They would have left some evidence behind along with having brought diseases with them. No need to lie if you don’t understand how history, a timeline and genetics play a part in the archaeology of the new world.

  • 👏👏 they still have their noses

    • Why did they take their noses?!!!!

  • Even the vikings discovered the Americas before Columbus did and had met the native tribes there and called the majority of that land "Vinland", theres actual Icelandic text which detail those journeys to the americas and what they found 5 centuries before columbus got there, they're called the "Vinland sagas" and no its not the anime lol.

  • A lot of those findings, I think, might result in convergent cultural evolution. For exemple, Japan and Central European country both had a concept of "infamie", and this was before any contacts with each other. The concept of "infamie" in Europe was extremely...scattered. For exemple, England didn't have it, but XV century Scotland had it, and the relatively close France had it. In fact, the Far East and Western Europe have several cultural resemblances. Again, the Eurasian continent favored several cultural similarities despite little contact with each other and the separation by large deserts. It is possible that in the Americas, similar writing systems were invented and forgotten about if such a writing system was deemed practical. In North America, there is also a similar thing, not with concepts, but with metallurgy. The Copper Inuits practiced copper-work, that is despite the fact that their Southern neighbors lacking this technology. So again, convergent cultural evolution is not to exclude. Another thing to consider is that Beringia was not the only entry point. When sea levels were lower, it would have enlarged and created several island. We know that the first boats were invented by the Neanderthals. It is not so strange to think then, small groups might have travelled from island to island in search of seals, algae beds, un-touched berries, marine birds and mollusques attracted by the lower sea-level and thus more sun-exposure. The Polynesian theory actually makes sense.

  • No aceptan que el Cristobal Colon es el descubridor oficial de America .Malos perdedores!!

  • Pacific Islanders discovered the America

  • 7:11 There are plenty of fat native people that looked like those statues, some even post photos of themselves regularly to shut up this stupid theory.

  • Israelite/ Phoenician theory is a better one

  • what about the theory that the americas were already inhabited before any one "discovered" it? Who did the polynesians trade with when they got here?

    • Polynesians are a very recent arrival, before Europeans, yes, but much later than native Americans. What is this theory called? Where can I find publications on it? Where are the true academic studies supporting your claim?

  • You discovered it for england but it been populated

  • Native Americans discovered America.

  • Totally interesting!

  • The group that crossed the Bering Land Bridge some 12 to 15 thousand years ago. There were certainly people there. Nearly every account of has them running into SOMEBODY there. Maybe violently, maybe not, but definitely people already there.

    • @macarde10 Ah, I was unclear. The group that would become the native americans arrived around 12-15 thousand years ago. They were the people the other groups would run into considerably later. The Vikings would have encountered them around 1000 ad. Maybe as far back as the 6th century ad for some of them, though there's less proof for the other groups. My point was simply that these other groups did discover the americas, they'd already been discovered by the native americans already living there.

    • @Zack Kelley ahhhh so they is all the supposed arrivals? Your message actually says that the native Americans encountered people and you go on to mention accounts, insinuating that those accounts regard the initial dates of 12-15 k years ago.

    • @macarde10 The viking sagas, the tale of Saint Brendan, etc. How accurate they are is pretty debatable though. The vikings definitely made it here before Columbus, they found an entire settlement they left behind. The rest don't really have anything substantive. Most have them running into people already there, an odd detail to include if it was just empty wilderness.

    • Where are these accounts?

  • Why the word discovery america have his own poeple its not unlanded work ur mind

  • Egyptians came first

    • Yes, they were first in Egypt, very true.

  • The first European to discover America was Leif Erickson.

  • Perhaps the question that should be asked is; How many times have the Americas been discovered?

  • Black pepole diskover amrica

    • What are these pepole you speak of?

  • Not tru

  • Discovered the continent of South America? I didn't know South America was a continent.

    • In the United States it’s based on the geology of the continental plates and not simply because the land masses are connected. Depending on where a person lives, the number of continents varies.

  • I can't express how dissapointed I am that you did'nt mention the Solutrean theory... I wrote an essay about it at university. Absolutely convincing... Spread the word folks, there's a doc on youtube. Very respected archaeologist that put it forward.

    • Why delete your post? The one using a media group as a source? The guardian? You said you wrote an essay, but you used a media outlet as a source? Why? Perhaps look up the arguments against the solutrean theory. It isn’t that I’m anti any specific group, i think that science needs to follow a specific methodology. Maybe at some point clear evidence will pop up. As of now, I don’t see it. Gathering of humans in the east coast only tells me that those lands were probably better suited for life and the animals they hunted. As for like items appearing in more than one place in the world, it does happen. People can come up with the same idea more than once. Convergent cultural evolution does happen.

    • @seb kobra “extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence.”

    • absence of evidence isnt evidence of absence! all of the early sites are on the eastern portion of the country and seem to spread east to west rather than west to east. Give it a chance, if you want i can send you my uni essay about it. fully referenced ofc. I studied geoarchaeology I might add

    • CS-tv videos are not the best of sources. The genetics of the most ancient of bones, as of yet, are not European. Naturally, today’s Europeans were not the Europeans of back then.

  • The Olmecs created huge faces as signals for Polynesian sailors who they regularly traded with

    • Really? Considering the Polynesians didn’t arrive until long after the Olmec were gone, that’s amazing!

  • how do u discover a land that people were actually living on n aboriginal to meanwhile Africans were the first Americans

    • Hardly so, genetic studies tell us exactly who the first indigenous people of the America’s were. They were not from Africa. If you’re referring to austromelanesian, there was mixing, believed to have occurred with an extinct austromelanesian population from Asia. It’s also believed that the mixing took place either more recently, or at some point in Asia, not in the Americas. The oldest bones, are related to people from central Siberia. That same relation still holds true with today’s native Americans.

  • You didn't talk about Mansa Abu Bakar the II, the ruler of Mali who also discovered America in the 13th century.

    • @HitmanX You’re still evading my questions. Side stepping and avoiding that which must be answered in order for your claim to be considered, doesn’t make your idea any more real than before.

    • @macarde10 here's a link to a website www.transcend.org/tms/2018/10/before-columbus-how-africans-brought-civilization-to-america/#:~:text=One%20of%20the%20first%20documented,great%20seafaring%20and%20navigational%20skills.

    • @macarde10 i think i also wrote another comment which was quite long and i said alot of things but that comment disappeared and I don't know why?? and im too tired to write again....

    • @HitmanXvideos are not evidence. I can make a video claiming we found spear points on the moon, it doesn’t make it so. Post the actual academic studies which support that claim. You’re still side stepping and not answering any of my questions.

    • @macarde10 but what about the evidence that video gave?(the one I sent). Like the chemical analysis of the gold on the tip of spears, that African looking statue found in America, Christopher Columbus's journal. One more thing is that Europeans carried more disease because of the way they lived in the dark ages, they didn't have a clean water system, a good system of living(if you look at dark age cities they were badly designed) and a bit of a bad hygiene as compared to muslims that lived in the golden age. I'm not trying to say that it's a FACT that African muslims came to America, it's just my theory. And can you sent me any sources that say that Africans carried the same disease as the Spanish. And check this video out while your at it cs-tv.org/tv/video-vIUJtxPiCWE.html

  • Here's how I see it. Columbus was probably the 734th person to sail to America but he had the King and Queen of Spain backing him up and his claims. Other people who sailed to America were refugees, exiles, traders, sailors who got lost, and the vast majority of these people never survived the return journey. Columbus knew the right people and he cultivated the relationships that would ensure that he got credit for what he did and that he'd be taken seriously. Columbus didn't discover America, but he discovered America the right way.

  • So basically, Columbus wasn't the first to discover America but he was the last.

  • IT IS NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH SO #FuckChristopherColumbus

  • Interesting to note, the Aztec god Atlahua is the god of oceans, hunting and fishing. Atla generally refers to water or the ocean in Mesoamerica. In Africa it generally means mountain (which comes from Atlas, Atlas mountains, Atar is mountain in Berger etc)

    • @protercool playing ignorant? It’s the Spanish spelling of a language that wasn’t based on the Roman alphabet. You’re still just spouting off nonsense. Atl doesn’t mean ocean in Nahuatl. It means water. Still wrong.

    • @macarde10 it's not about the spelling, it's about the meaning and pronunciation. They both reference the ocean, and until you can show otherwise, my looking in to it has concluded that the pronunciation is more similar than dozens of other words and their roots (for example, most other ancient Greek words in use today) The pronunciation is Spanish? Atlántico is a Spanish word, what relevance is the Spanish pronunciation of Atl if it's almost identical to English?

    • @protercool I never claimed to be a linguist. You can tell me that I’m way of base all you want, but I’m not. Again, claiming that which is not, just to spew forth some pseudo scientific dribble, doesn’t make it so. I said atl is pronounced as though it were in Spanish. I never said anything about Spanish and English. I said the spelling of atl is based on the Spanish pronunciation. Now you’re just putting words in my mouth to peddle your whimsical tales of there being a “coincidental,” similarity of the spelling of several words. If it makes you feel good to believe that I don’t know anything about the Aztecs or the anthropology of the new world, wish away. Still won’t make it so.

    • @macarde10 I literally brought Pinyin up to agree with you. As I am aware Latin characters make sounds that no Latin language would use them to make, which was somewhat your seemingly completely incorrect point about Aztec language. (Or the arguments you should have used, if you actually know what you were talking about) I tire of this endless "you're wrong" especially when you seem to have no understanding of many topics you are commenting on. I was genuinely prepared to accept that you were some type of linguist, but then you claimed that Spanish is a vastly different language to English. I trusted earlier that perhaps some of the words you speak come from truth, but that was from trust in your confidence, and that you've wooshed pretty much everything I've said. You've got nothing and yet you so assuredly assert "you're wrong" without backing the claim up whatsoever. This conversation is a joke

    • @protercool you are absolutely wrong. Claiming that which is not, doesn’t make it so. All you’re doing is mixing apples and oranges. Again Atlantic as you yourself have said, is from Ancient Greek. Just as scientific studies are Greek words, they are pronounced similarly. However, throw in words that do not have a common origin and you’re just making links where none exist. Now you’re bringing Chinese pinyin into the mix. What’s next? It’s funny how linguists find no link yet you do. Claiming that which is not, still doesn’t make it so.

  • Nobody “discovered” it. It is owned by the true heirs who’s history had been covered up for the past 400+ years. Land can not not be passed down through bloodline, anything else is fraud.

  • Check out evidence of Europeans in N.America from about 22,000 years ago. There is European DNA in some of the Northern Canadian Indian tribes. www.gwynnsislandmuseum.org/the-cinmar-blade

    • Extraordinary claims need extraordinary evidence. The mtdna studies actually show a common ancestor from Central Asia, not a European genetic admixture. That far back, they also would not have been today’s Europeans. I would love nothing but to have some great discovery as that, but I’ll keep with Carl Sagan’s famous quote until more evidence actually points in another direction other than Asia.

  • Honestly every single theory makes complete sense to me. The americas were just way too far away to be profitable, so the ones contacting them over the millenia just continuosly decided they have better things to do than sail half the way across the world to meet some wierd natives with their sweet potatoes.

  • There can also be a chance for underground transportation The Agartha Paathal

  • who discovered "AMERICA FIRST"?,

  • it only really counts if you go to america, and then come back.

  • I watch these type of videos all of the time. There are hundreds of other examples. Off the top of my head,.. There are so many other examples. 900 Year old Chinese anchors found off the port of LA in California, a Budau statue found in the Grand Canyon, along with several copies of the 10 commandments carved in stone in ancient Hebrew in the Grand Canyons. An ancient Roman sword found in Texas, and 3 Egyptian mummies found in caves also in the Grand Canyon.

    • Yes many of these have either been shown to be contemporary or completely false. While those such as the Egyptians and supposed Buddha statue apparently are complete fabrications if those with whimsical dreams in their heads

  • I know an Irish building was found underground in Pennsylvania that they think Saint Brenden built.

  • 9:20 Hmmm

  • Here is the million dollar question. Does the young girls skull found in South America have denisovan genes in her DNA. If she does, then she came from Asia, same as the Australian Aborigines. If she does not, then she comes from Africa.

  • You can’t discover something that had people already living there for thousands of years... that’s just my opinion

  • *Columbus:* "I've discovered the new world!" *Native Americans, Vikings, Irish, Guineans, Romans, Japanese and Polynesians who were chilling there for hundreds of years* "You what?"

    • @Blob no, it’s because of the United States that the United States is developed. It began with European immigrants and colonies. It continued with a mixing of people and the arrival of more and more immigrants. It also encompassed native Americans and former slaves when it came to developing the country as time went on. Attributing all to Europeans is just posting politically motivated dribble.

    • @Blob sadly if columbus didnt discover america indians would still be hunting buffaloes

    • @Blob true

    • also the africans.

    • @Blob “so yeah,” wow quite the winning argument there. Again, Europeans invading or migrating, have nothing to with your original claim that is still false.

  • There is a story that the ottomans discovered the Americas.

    • Yes, a very good tale, I’m sure.

  • Speaking of the clay pots the ancient Greeks used to use, as a Greek they are so common you can go to any beach and at a distance of 6-10 meteres away from the coastline you will find clay pot fragments, I have found dozens of large mini and small ones that were used in cups, jars and pots, I brought them over to my house, I went around 7-10 meters deep (almost drowned bc I didn’t have gear) and I found some fragments which I still have at my house, speaking of which ζήτω η Ελλάδα 🇬🇷❤️

  • The Atlantians were first. J/K.

  • the native american. duh.

  • Addressing Africans going to the Americas, during the reign of the Mali Empire in the 14th century, there was a massive fleet of Malian ships headed by the king that set out west, and never returned. Maybe...

    • Maybe not. Were the story even true, they most likely were lost at sea. What most people seem to forget, is what transpired because of the arrival of the Spanish. They transported diseases, goods, animals, plants and foods to the America’s. They also brought such items back to the old world. That contact resulted in what we call the columbian exchange. It’s also reflected in the archaeological record. Mali was a population center which had the same diseases as the Spaniards. Had they actually arrived in the new world, they would have caused the same exchanges we saw with the Spanish. The native Americans drew pictures of people with diseases, they also created figurines with those same afflictions. Yet nothing appears in the archaeological record until after the arrival of the Spanish.

  • Well, Greenland is North America, so maybe that counts too?

  • Has anybody tried to translate the lines on those rocks to see if they are Ogham? Is that possible or are the lines not readable?

  • ... The Native Americans discovered it first, duh 😒

  • Can they maybe test dna of isolated tribes in the Amazon for traces of African dna? Wouldn’t that be something that Africans were trading and probably moving to the America’s long before Europeans

    • They have tested, and they’ve tested precolumbian remains. No signs of African dna outside of mixing post Columbus.

  • Saint Brendan

  • Europeans did. Thousands of years before the Siberians.

  • Interesting stuff. I knew about the visits to North Am by Greenland and Icelandic explorers and the myth around St. Brenden. The others a new to me. I would say that the best bet for adding proof would be genetic. If by trade or stranding, other cultures arrived in the Americas much earlier, it might show up through DNA evidence.

  • We shouldn't constantly brush off early human civilizations as dumb or uncapable of overcoming such obstacles. We're certainly capable of recognizing patterns in our environment and clever use of rudimentary technology

  • Okay so I'll go with the Japanese and Polynesian theory because kumala is how we say it and kumara is how a Japanese would definitely pronounce it. Also native Americans always looked super Asian to me anyways.

  • POV: Your in-class reading this comment

  • Man this is what happens when you call USA America. America is a single continent, but the whole video keeps treating America as a one continent with "America" and then "The Americas", then you call it a continent but after South and North are consider two continents, then it changes to one.

  • I read an old adventure book written by Chinese explorerers and they talked about reaching the Pacific Northwest. I don't remember the date, but I am sure you should be able to find that book and maybe you can see it's validity.

    • Hardly so. Three ships from Spain began the spread of disease through out the new world. We see the results of the arrival of the Spanish even in the archaeological record. Nothing such as that is seen prior to the Spanish. China had larger population centers with the same disease as Europe. Why no exchange of goods, ideas or language? Why didn’t foods go back and forth as it did with the Spanish? So many unanswered questions with your idea.

  • Aren't the native homosapians millions of years ago the one that discovered the Americas?!

    • The first people to inhabit the new word were from Asia, about 30,000 years ago. There is a proven genetic link between Siberian and American population in the Y-Chromosomal haplogroup Q, and there is a well established genealogical link between the Yeniseian languages of central Siberia and the Na-Dene languages of North America. However, the branching of the proto-Dene-Yeniseian languages happened much more recently, so the people who migrated to the new world speaking the ancestors of the Na-Dene languages were in a later wave of migration, I believe closer to about 10,000 years ago.

  • So people have been sayin africans made it to the americas waaay before europeans and were called crazy

  • Thats bullshit asians came first

  • The Romans were not very venturous as seafarers. They stayed mostly near the coast; in fact they learned shipbuilding from the Carthaginian (by copying captured Carthaginian ships). After destroying Carthago they dominated and controlled the Mediterranean, but other seafaring people within their regnum were still more venturous. But there are some scientists speculating of Carthaginian expeditions, even (in one case) of Carthaginian refugees settling in the Amazonas region. (But the evidence for this ist very thin and not consistent with the mass extinction of the indigenous people due to European diseases after 1492.)

  • Do remember there are three dominat people's across the Pacific. The one to have disappeared most recently is the Maoriori with evidence of having introduced the polonesian rat, food, to South Western New Zealand 35000 years back from where it moved along the trade winds to Several islands and South America, then north and back west with the northern trade winds. The least thought of are the Arnu who speak Basque of north Spain.

    • The arnu? Who are the arnu? And how do the basque have anything to do with the pacific, if they are located in France and Spain? I’m aware there were basque conquistadors. But you seem to be alluding to something prior to Columbus. As someone who grew up in the basque culture, I would love to hear this story. You also seem to be confusing austromelanesian with Polynesian.

  • Strawberry blond New Zealand Maori have there origin story comming from Egypt by way of south America. Wind blown travel would be appropriate in that direction. Their genes confirm much of this memory. Many early Viking artifacts found well within North America, although challenged early on, are now thought more likely true.

    • Hardly so. Why not post those supposed genetic studies? Things that make you go hmmmmm. Indeed there are Viking artifacts.

  • You missed the ever controversial Solutrean Hypothesis.

    • Only controversial because eurocentrists and some white supremacists have decided to use it as fuel. Archaeologists no longer view it as a possibility.

  • Africans. Next.

    • @Pat's Amazing Blends actually, I think it’s you who don’t understand.

    • @macarde10 you don't understand. I am answering the question.

    • He’s done videos on Africa.

  • Columbus: I discovered America! Native Americans: Am I a joke to you!?

  • How do you discover something when there’s people already living on the land please explain that because you can’t fuck out of here with that bullshit

    • its a discovery for his culture. Europe (re) discovered the America's because most countries werent aware of its existence. Its not THE discovery and this video doesnt argue that either i think.

  • The winds also give credibility to the Polynesians for another reason. We know that when exploring, they would often sail against the prevailing winds. That way, if they found nothing, they could turn around and zip right back home

  • First channel I've come across that actually puts "first" in the question. Well done! 🎉👏👍

  • Aliens were 1st

  • Africas been knowing about the Americas for thousands of years

    • Hardly so, why not post where you found that information.

  • *”Wait so america was not the first country ever?”*
