Exactly. Evidence is what matters. Likewise, if I see good evidence for Africans in America, I will accept it as I accept any evidence which is reliable.<quoted text>
Well I am not here to flatly reject the notion of African presence in Americas. I am here to analyze the current data and attempt to make logical deductions as a result. And the conclusion I've reached is that, there is no evidence of an African origin to the Americas since there is no evidence of Africans even making it to the Americas in the first place, because if they had made it, and had enough people to spark a full blown civilization, they would have left boat remnants along the coastal regions or not too far inland of the Americas. No such African remains have ever been found large or small. No African settlements have been found.
It is sad that the same battle which has had to be fought to have Africa recognized as a civilization, even the bias which had reached me in terms of not calling W Africa an independent ag center simply because it was not structured spatially the same as the one in the Mideast... and even the existence of civilizations, which when found were then ascribed to Arabs or Persians.
Well, that same struggle had to be fought in America, where the whites were claiming the eastern USA mounds were built by Egyptians, Phoenicians, Hebrews, Greeks, Basques, Bretons, ANYONE but Native Americans!!! Proper archaeological analysis of the Hopewell mounds shows that the ancestors of the SHAWNEE built them!
And now I'm here going through the same process with Afronazis who insist that Native civilizations were not built by Natives! They won't ever say it, and don't even think it consciously, but these BLACK AFRONAZIS are in fact thinking,“Those dumb Injuns couldn't have done this, we know they just lived in tipis and smoked the peace pipe.” SAME crap the white racists think.
Sorry, Afronazis, but the Native Americans were skilled in astronomy, agriculture, art, literature... and in fact contrary to popular knowledge they were developing metallurgy at several sites.
OLMECS = 100% Native Americans!!!
