The Truth about Christopher Columbus and His “Discoveries”

Alternative Title: Columbus was Really Bad at Math

Almost all the “facts” you learned in school about Christopher Columbus are wrong! Amongst other things, Columbus never proved that the earth is round and he never set foot in what is now North America. A YouTube video below and also available at https://youtu.be/3MJoKhO9G1g sets the record straight.

True, what we learned in elementary school about Columbus was twisted, but so is this. There are lots of real history books with the facts for those who are interested. I am reading Catalogue of Shipwrecked Books by Edward Wilson-Lee which gives a good picture of the events at that time.

About 1470 Columbus visited Madeira, where his brother in law was governor. He saw seeds pods and stone axe worked driftwood washing in from the west. Everyone knew that it was 12,000 miles to China, and that those materials could not have drifted that far. There is strong evidence that the Basques were already fishing the Grand Banks at that time. Perhaps that is why he took the southern route, ending in the Caribbean.

Pliny the Elder wrote ca. AD 77: ‘We all agree on the earth’s shape. For surely we always speak of the round ball of the Earth’ I’m not all that interested in researching whoever claims the credit of ‘proving’ it.

Wow, that video was really twisted. Try reading the ship logs that Columbus actually wrote himself. Second, third hand accounts etc. always seem to distort, much like playing “telephone.”
