As if the sephardics did fully immigrate from the 15th century to present day and completely breed in to the Chamorro tribe--how many are left--5??? What's next filipino take out food from 12 weeks ago? The great deluge in the 15th century from Mt. Vesuvius eruption and all the ash and lava that displaced the global coastlines causing a GIANT high tidal surge---wiped out the Chamorro culture as well pretty much.

The people to talk to about the Chamorro would be the japanese--because the Chamorro would have been the Japanese's trade partners and adversary's etc.---Before the great deluge in the 15th century--the Chamorro society and empire would have been a ring of islands from the Mariana Islands all the way to filipinos Islands- creating a giant island bay etc.---due to their high protein diet---the chamorro would have been giant muscle men etc .---probably would have warred with the asians not have been too friendly to them--the chamorro would have looked more like the Native Americans--than the Asians--probably.

I'm pretty sure the great deluge--washed completely over most of the pacific Islands except the big Island in Hawaii or malaysia---Great Britain was completely washed over by the tidal surge wiping out their indigenous pop. etc.--the Romans would know about that?

In this satellite photo you can kinda see the amount of water displacement that led to the huge tidal surge and changing of the global coastlines etc. Remember Ash is water soluble!!!

Whether it was Mt. Etna or Mt. Vesuvius , they both are planet changing volcano's in lot of ways----and have effected our planet time and time again.

I'm pretty sure the indigenous pop. of the british Isles are the Fenians-they probably had dark hair and dark skin.

In the gulf of mexico--you can see the "wash bowl" of the double tidal surge during the great deluge in the 15th century. That wiped out most of the native american society's, most were probably cherokee.-------The most important evidence- of the great deluge in the gulf-is a Roman freighter on the Iowa Sioux indian reservation in north eastern Kansas--that was pushed up the Missouri river during the great deluge that probably traded with the Cherokee in the 15th century.

The giant bowl in the middle of california or the San Joaquin Valley---was probably made or carved by the great deluge and was a inland sea for awhile after the tidal surge etc.--the water that was left behind like the owen's valley marsh etc was part of the evaporation process.

The society's in north and south america in the 15th century before the great deluge--probably were based on E-coli or Escherichia control etc.---like the cherokee gulf communities which were probably fish-grain-fruit society's etc.---and had to do e-coli control in the surrounding communities to control zoonotic infections from e-coli and or fecal matter based Escherichia=which means the cherokee probably had fire weapons or flame throwers etc.--alot of the central united state communities at the time where based on migratory routes when one communities became fecal contaminated they moved to the next spot etc and control over their area'a based on keeping those migratory routes from being contaminated. So e-coli ran their society's. When the great deluge hit the gulf vegetarian communities probably got attacked by the people they had to do e-coli control on etc.

The Mayan communities also had alot to do with e-coli control and "seeking" out the e-coli source or eliminating the communities that were causing the e-coli zoonotic problems-like ritual sacrifice etc.

Forgot to throw in some token references to gargling do henrys and colon puppets with that crusty clam bit. Now Donny can play too when he asks for the eye bleach instead of just asking me not to post this material over and over and over and over and over again.
