By the way, Amazonian forests are still 95% old growth! And it is not the "lungs of the Earth" as you Libtards claim as the trees are dying, and rotting, at the same rate they are growing!
If you want forests to be net producers of oxygen, you need to clear cut them and put the wood where it will not rot while the forest regrows.

Ancient Amazon Actually Highly Urbanized - Aug 28, 2008
It's not Rio de Janeiro or even ancient Athens but anthropologists uncover evidence of urban settlements By David Biello

In 1925 British adventurer Colonel Percy Fawcett disappeared into the wilds of the Amazon, never to be heard from again after going there in search of a lost city he called Z. But decades later, a city of sorts—actually a series of settlements connected by roads—has been found at the headwaters of the Xingu River where Fawcett went missing in an area previously buried beneath the dense foliage in what is now Xingu National Park.

Anthropologist Michael Heckenberger of the University of Florida teamed with the local Kuikuro people in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso to uncover 28 towns, villages and hamlets that may have supported as many as 50,000 people within roughly 7,700 square miles (20,000 square kilometers) of forest—an area slightly smaller than New Jersey. The larger towns boasted defensive ditches 10 feet (three meters) deep and 33 feet (10 meters) wide backed by a wooden palisade as well as large plazas, some reaching 490 feet (150 meters) across.

The remains of houses and ceramic cooking utensils show that humans occupied these cities for around 1,000 years, from roughly 1,500 years to as recently as 400 years ago. Satellite pictures reveal that during that time, the inhabitants carved roads through the jungle; all plaza villages had a major road that ran northeast to southwest along the summer solstice axis and linked to other settlements as much as three miles (five kilometers) away. There were bridges on some of the roads and others had canoe canals running alongside them.

What is the matter with you. The Europeans PHYSICALLY brought transmittable diseases to America. The brought them with them. As far as I know, those same Europeans brought back syphilis with them to Europe , the South and Central Americans DID NOT BRING THEM TO EUROPE. You don't see the difference?

Also, you have not replied to my assertion that Columbus and his crewmen, who were Spaniards for the most part, never returned to Northern Italy. You said they brought syphilis to Northern Italy. Please explain. Educate me on that.

History of syphilis

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Jump to: navigation, search



Portrait of Gerard de Lairesse by Rembrandt van Rijn, ca. 1665–67, oil on canvas. De Lairesse, himself a painter and art theorist, suffered from congenital syphilis that severely deformed his face and eventually blinded him.[1]
The history of syphilis has been well studied, but the exact origin of syphilis is unknown.[2] There are two primary hypotheses: one proposes that syphilis was carried from the Americas to Europe by the crew of Christopher Columbus, the other proposes that syphilis previously existed in Europe but went unrecognized.[3] These are referred to as the "Columbian" and "pre-Columbian" hypotheses respectively.[3]

In late 2011 newly published evidence suggested that the Columbian hypothesis is the valid one.[4]

"Skeletal evidence that reputedly showed signs of syphilis in Europe and other parts of the Old World before Christopher Columbus made his voyage in 1492 does not hold up when subjected to standardized analyses for diagnosis and dating, according to an appraisal in the current Yearbook of Physical Anthropology. This is the first time that all 54 previously published cases have been evaluated systematically, and bolsters the case that syphilis came from the New World."

I "think" I read about five years ago from a NOAA report that 93% of the Amazon rainforest was old growth. This is what I can currently find that seems reliable.

according to Wikipedia.

Amazon rainforest facts
Total area 2,123,562 sq. mi.
total deforested 227,000 sq. mi.[10.8%]

Deforestation has declined significantly in the Brazilian Amazon since 2004.

Why do you publish this? What does it mean? Can you not think and write about it yourself? No one asked you to post this extract from scientific American. How does it realte to transmittable diseases? Do you think so-called "libtards" (Rogue, tm reg'd) don't know about these discoveries? Don't you think that they have studied these civilizations? Ever been to those countries yourself? Ever lived there? Ever visited the ancient ruins, compared them to the structures in Egypt and elsewhere? Ever spoken to the native descendants of Aztecs, Mayas, and Incas? Posting any scientific study you find on the internet does not put you in a position to discuss these subjects. Post them to PROVE something, rather, when asked for proof, which you hardly ever do because when you advance something on your own, it's usually unfounded and outright picked out of the blue.

The FIRST recording of syphilis was in northern Italy in 1494. That was more then enough time for Columbus' sailors to have dispersed to their homes after he returned.
Whether the Spaniard got syphilis from raping native women or from consensual relationships I have no idea. And I am not aware if any natives returned with Columbus but it syphilis did come from the Americas while small pox came from Europe.
You do know they did not have antibiotics back then, don't you? And since each population had no prior exposure to these diseases when the infections occurred, it was widespread and had high fallibility rates.
I used to know Dr.(Major) Maddog Madorsky who studied STDs in S. Vietnam for three years and he was one crazy dude. At the end of his class he had a slide of a glass eyeball stuffed in a woman's love canal and it had a caption which said, "No matter how hard you look, you can not see VD"!

We aviator types get to know the flight surgeons pretty well as a simple head cold you get to see him twice. Once to get your meds and a "grounding slip" and a few days later a "go fly slip".
Well one Sunday morning I was having breakfast at the Officers Club when our flight doc came in in uniform. I asked him if he had ER duty last night and he said "yes". I then asked him how it went and he said he had to remove a cucumber from somebody and I asked him where the cucumber was and he just gave me a dirty look. I am sure doctors have about seen it all.

Huh? Three term state senator, one term US Senator and one term US President and the fool still stuck on Romney whines about grammar police? He claims Romneycare a failure even though the people in Mass. don't agree. he thinks Mitt isso eminently qualified even though he believes Romneycare was a failure.

He thinks he's the judge of who is qualified to be POTUS and he cannot even figure out middle school grammar.

When the first recording happened is immaterial.(BTW, his sailors' homes were in Spain.)

Columbus cleared of importing syphilis from America after skeletons from two centuries earlier show signs of disease

Is that skull of yours wrapped in concrete or what? Dispersed to Northern Italy? Told you in my post that Columbus's sailors were Spanish ! Also told you that the South and Central American natives did NOT BRING Syphilis to to Europe. Europeans returning from there brought it to Europe. You still don't see the difference. And, stop right there ! It would seem,(see wojar's post) and my Wikipedia reference, that syphilis already existed all over Europe and probably Asia but was called something else. In any case, the natives did NOT invade Europe as the Europeans invaded them so natives did not foist syphilis on Europeans. Got it?
