The common belief that American Indians arrived on the North American continent long before Europeans has taken some major hits over the past 2 decades with new evidence persuasively demonstrating that Caucasians were the first immigrants to the new world.
A fascinating video summarized a stack of multidisciplinary data which solidly makes the case that Europeans reached the American continent well before the arrival of the peoples known as native Americans or Indians from Asia.
The standard teaching is that Asians migrated over a land mass since melted or submerged in the Bering Straight some 10-13,000 years ago. This mass disappeared 13-17,000 years ago, making the case for Asian migration via that route rather tenuous. However, that is not the crux of the argument of the scientists who have turned history on its head.
They use a series of confluent evidences to piece together the case that Solutreans from France and Spain came to America's eastern shores at least 2000 years before the American-Asian Indians. One of the first evidences for this conclusion is the Clovis arrowhead form found in America which more closely resembles that of the Solutreans than the Asian-Siberians.
Additionally, the use of red ochre in burial rites in both America and Europe suggests a continuity of cultural practice rather than the coincidental and spontaneous eruption of a practice in 2 diverse locations.
DNA evidence also corroborates the theory that Europeans arrived first to North America. Both Mitochondrial and Human Lymphocyte Antigens show Caucasian heredity rather than Asian in those oldest skeletal remains of American burial grounds.
The skeletal evidence also shows that the shape of the oldest skulls found in America is elongated rather than Mongoloid. These 15-20 skulls found thus far significantly predate Asian remains. In Peru, in cases where hair has survived, examples of blond and red haired people 2 thousands years old have been found, characteristics which are indicators of Caucasian peoples.
The migratory movement from east to west of these people who landed on the eastern shores is far more consistent with the physical evidence found across the American continent of indigenous American remains than is consistent with a west to east migratory model.
Linguists have also noted numerous language similarities between the Algonquin Indians and that of the Basque language of the French-Spanish regions of modern Europe, similarities too close for independent, coincidental development.
Historical accounts also corroborate the presence of White skinned people in North America, particularly the Aztec, Olmec, and Mayan histories. Art work clearly shows White people in America before the arrival of Columbus.
Some might object that ocean crossing trips were beyond the skills of Stone Age people, but this is a stereotype with little foundation. Scientists have demonstrated that such people had the sea-craft for such voyages, whether they reached America by design or accident.
It is also possible that continental drift obscures the closeness once had between the 2 continents, much as the book of Genesis tells us. Thus ocean voyages in great antiquity may not have been necessary, or may have been much less arduous than in modern times.
Much of the video relied upon reports from the Smithsonian Institute's website, and is thus well within the mainstream of scientific inquiry. These findings should also rid White European Americans of the insidious idea that they are parvenu without portfolio or precedent. The continent was open to the arrivals of Europeans, Asians, and even Polynesians, and was not a land grant of a so-called indigenous people.
The boneyards of antiquity will continue to reveal great new discoveries which will rewrite the history books.
