You do realize that George Washington Carver DID NOT invent peanut butter? It was invented by Canadian Marcellus Gilmore Edson. How can you be so wrong about so many things?

The earliest reference to peanut butter being made goes all the way back to around 1000 BC where the Ancient Incas were known to have made a paste out of peanuts. Since then, peanut butter has been “invented” numerous times by various individuals throughout history.

Although Carver didn’t invent peanut butter, he did play a significant role in popularizing it and his 1880 “invention” of peanut butter preceded most of the other modern “inventors” of peanut butter. Carver was one of the greatest inventors in American history, discovering over 300 hundred uses for peanuts with100 or so of those not being related to one another in terms of the end product produced; he also discovered hundreds of uses for soybeans, pecans, and sweet potatoes.

http://www.americanheritage.com/content/conun... After amassing persuasive genetic and botanical evidence for their belief, they found concrete support in archaeology. It came first in 1948 from the Bat Cave in western New Mexico, where prehistoric Indians lived from about 3000 B.C. to A.D. 1000. The leftovers of their tenancy lay untouched in the cave floor—layer after layer of garbage, offal, excrement, broken pottery. Digging methodically, excavators found 776 corncobs.

that is not the only food that was found in China.
.
what we now call saurkraut was first created in China to help feed the common workers working on projects like the Great Wall of China.
.
http://www.recipes4us.co.uk/Cooking%20by%20Co... Contrary to common belief, the basis of Sauerkraut did not originate in Germany. It actually dates back to c200 B.C. China where the workers building the Great Wall of China ate it as a supplement to their normal diet which consisted mainly of rice. Admittedly, it was made with wine at that time, but nevertheless, it was the origin of today's recipe. also, the form of it that traveled to Korea became known as 'kimchi'. the Korean form of the pickled cabbage tends to be spicy. no matter if it is mild, medium or super spicy.
.
because people have this tendency to travel. many times they would bring what they were used to, with them. and those folks in the areas they traveled in saw this new form of food liked it. so they either got the recipe. and or they tried to adapt it to what was on hand already in the area.
.
this is how many of the foods we enjoy here in America came to be. because our ancestors brought along the recipes of what they were used to in the Olde World aka where ever they came from. like Europe, Asia, etc......
.
some of those plants our ancestors brought here to be used as either food and or as medicine like they were and are used outside of America, are considered to be weeds here in America. plants like dandelions, creeping charlie, lambsquarters, Common Purslane, burdock, for example.

Carver was 16 in 1880 and didn't even start his work with alternative crops for another 31 years.

Also, while the Aztecs did eat mashed peanut paste, it was not the same thing as modern peanut butter. Go buy peanuts, crush them, and see how close that is to a jar of Skippy.

How pathetic are their defective lives that these two "feel" a need to be "Proven" "Winners" on a Message Board.

The thing about being honest, is that one does not need to remember their lies and distortions.

Yer basic Collectivist of the Victim Party lives life based on Situational Ethics, that is why we see the basic Victim Party Dependents contradict themselves consistently.

Do you ever get tired of being wrong?

"There is a legend of Marco Polo importing pasta from China[19] which originated with the Macaroni Journal, published by an association of food industries with the goal of promoting the use of pasta in the United States."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pasta#History

The Arabs actually introduced the precursor to modern spaghetti noodles to Italy in the 7th century, but Lasagna noodles had already been around since the 1st century.

Modern spaghetti (noodles with tomato sauce) was invented in the 1700s.
