The first native American?

Last Monday, it was Columbus Day.... For many Americans, it's important... The guy Christopher Columbus was the first European who discovered America... and brought new hopes for many people from his day up to the present day....

It has long been known that, before Columbus, there were groups of people venturing from Asia across the Pacific Ocean to America.... They walked the continent from Alaska, to Mexico, and further down south to the Amazon River...

It has been well-established that Native Americans are the descendents of these bold adventurers....

On this Columbus Day, I had a chance to lay down and watched an interesting program on the Discovery Channel from my cable TV at night after my children had gone to bed....

It was about an evidence indicating that there might be a group of people from Europe arrived at America 17,000 years ago-- long before the Asian adventurers had arrived at the continent!!

Archeologists found pieces of stone tools in Virginia... They are flints (sharps made of rocks) which are identical as they had found earlier in Europe (France, to be specific). These sharps were used as spear for hunting. They need specific kind of rocks and well-trained skills to make it so sharp... They are even sharper than scarpels used in the modernday surgery!!

By carbon-dating technique, the results suggested that there were European here in America around 17,000 years ago!! In that time, the earth was in the last ice age....

The scientists explored further into the weather, geographical changes and glacier movements in the Atlantic Ocean in that period of time using computer simulation techniques.... The simulation results indicated that there was an 4000-mile ice brigde between Europe and America. With this natural-occuring "bridge", there might be some hunters making their way across the ocean and left those stone tools in Virginia....

One critical question ensues; Did they all die out? Or did they somehow survive, have their descendents and continue their bloodlines?

With this simple question of "bloodlines", DNA technology comes to play... The scientists analyzed blood samples from the current descendents of the native Americans.... Surprisingly, they found that 25% of these native Americans bearing a set of DNA markers found in the Europeans!!

So this means those European whose left those stone tools in Virginia did, in fact, survive, and, might have lived harmoniously with the new commers.... Both groups might have contacted and lived together... So that's why the current group of people contains these historical evidence in their genuine records, their DNA....

If these can be stringently verified, history of the world will be, again, re-written.... At least, this history is a factual, scientifically proven one, not a fabricated one!!

Living in the SW, I've learned along with the kids about the Native Americans.

The people that have so much to be respected for who they are, but got treated as they were so barbarian and not human.

"The Long Walk" just broke my heart.

"Sing Down the Moon" by Scott O'Dell is another good book to read. Story of a little Navajo girl who got kidnapped to be slave in the Spanish home.

It is a memorable reading experience--for any age.

แต่อเมริกาก็ได้ให้อะไรๆ กับชาวโลกได้มากมายเช่นเดียวกัน.............

Khun A.T.

You never cease to learn! What a useful habit to have! Histories are indeed very important, but whose version is factually right remains an issue we all should be critical of as consumers. Histories have seldom been written without politics on the background.

Warmest regards to you and your family!

Big hello on Sunday afternoon!
Yes, I think you may be right. There is a possiblity that the pet is ferret. I really don't know about it. I just saw them from an opposite site of the road. Thank you for sharing your experiences naka.

Now I am 6 hours different from Thailand (last night it was 5 hours). What about the US?

Note: My life has been intertwined with works and many others. New responsibility has emerged, resulting less and less time for my ordinary life. Although, a love to write is still intact... But having less time is related to having less imagination.... Therefore, I could not come up with new writings for quite some times.

It might be a good time for me to leave this forum for moment.... Please take it as Mr. A.T. is having a sabbactatical leave or something like that....

As noted above, my love to write is still the same... and will not be changed. Sometimes somehow, I hope I could come back and give some thoughts in this blog once more.

My pen-name in Pantip is amatuer translator. Actually, I'm a lousy translator with lame translation. My pen-name is somewhat misleading, I have no background in linguistics what-so-ever. Anyway I love to read, write and communicate with people...

Reading is my most favorite hobby. I read everything from shopping bags to articles in theoretical physics. I do research and teaching for my living. So, reading, writing, thinking and doing research works are my everyday routine.

I would like to define myself as a person who is accepting new ideas and adopting those into my way of life.

I believe in power of knowledge/education. I think every society can be a better society with knowledge. Ignorance can be dispelled by it. Humanity can live sustainably and harmoniously with each other along with its biosphere with understandings in the nature surrounding it.

Apart from my philosophical thoughts reflecting who I am, I can tell you something I like or love in particular;

I love dogs.... Particularly, labradore retrievers.... One day, I would like to spend my time and life with them as a big part of my family.

Zhuge Liang is my hero. With his wisdom and faithfulness, he led a tiny army to a mighty and formidable kingdom. He left his humble residence with a hope to come back. But, sadly, he had never returned and died far far away from home in a horse carriage in a battle field. If I could choose where I would, I would say where-ever my lovely wife was nearby.

I value happiness and my family as my first priority. My profession and my philosophy come in the second. Pursuit in wealth has never been in my desire.

I'm glad to be your friend, and look forward to seeing you around krub.

Best wishes,
Friends' blogs
