I saw this thing saying that the ancient Chinese could have come to the Americas before the Europeans,in the year 260 bc. Its even thought that they influenced the Mighty Mayans and the Glorious Aztecs in their designs for temples!

Well, archeologists discovered a bronze arrow head in Mexico. The incriptions on it were said to be Asian. They also found what looked like a statue of a Chinese spirit, or god.

I see no reason not to believe it. Columbus long ago lost that crown as the Vikings were known to have been here long before him.

Although I do think it's funny we always talk about who discovered America... The Indians discovered American, of course they came from Asia anyway so I guess regardless the Asians originally discovered America.

Just like how it is: The tyrants write the history! Columbus was the one that came over and let the Europeans took over the Americas. And that's what made history. What was written was for the European audience and now American audience in how the United States was started. Of course the red Indians that are still in there are pissed.

The discovery of America is a well dissuced topic: it is true that the native americans discoverd it first, and i agree with that 100%. However the Chinese discovered it almost 1200 years before the vikings and almost 1600 years before Columbus! What a feat! And I watched this thing on Historia ( Québec History Channel) that at that period, the Chinese had the techonolgy to cross oceans, though they lost some of that knoweldge when the Han empire fell sad smiley but regained it in the 900`s smiling smiley!
