Despite the fact I'm Guatemalan, in elementary school new kids would often ask if I was Asian, given that I wore glasses, was intelligent, and even had Asian-type eyes and skin color.

It's a common thing, but that doesn't make this action by the Republicans less of a gaffe.

There is a decent chance that is totally bogus. The entirety of the Americas was populated at nearly the same time, and there is growing evidence for sea transport as the mode of transportation, not the land bridge.

GAT_00: . The entirety of the Americas was populated at nearly the same time


Actually it wasn't. Though what a lot of us were taught in grade school has been inverted. Turns out the Inuit instead of being the first arrivals are the most recent. As in just barely made it here before the land bridge went away. Other native Americans come from before they got here. Indeed based on genetic studies those in South America got here first. As for sea travel, that explains Pacific Islanders from Samoans to Hawaiians to the Maori of New Zeland etc. They're all closely related and only way they could have gotten where they got is with boats. Turns out Thor Heyerdahl was right all along. Just took geneticists to convince the anthropologists he was right. And that they wasted 40 plus years.

Where the hell did you hear that? I mean, even logically, that wouldn't make sense. Even if sea transport was the mode of transportation, it would still be impossible for the entirety of the Americas to be populated at the same time - sea farers would still have to travel from the edges of the coasts inland and eastwards.

Besides, there was a genetic study that demonstrated that Native Americans share a specific haploid group in their DNA that is only shared by the peoples of Northeastern Asia and Siberia, which makes the land bridge theory a heck of a lot more likely.

They didn't island hop. Most of those islands were populated long after the Americas were. They probably skimmed along the coast. The land bridge never made sense really. The one path thought to exist from Alaska to below the glaciers would have been nearly devoid of vegetation. It would have been insane to take that path, it wouldn't have had any visible possible benefits.

But Polynesia was populated at 1000 BC at their absolute earliest, and they were one of the earliest. They couldn't have island hopped.

Most of the recent studies are finding hole after hole in the land bridge theory. There are sites in South America that came from before the land bridge was supposedly open according to the dating. Sea transport is the only thing that makes sense.

GAT_00: They didn't island hop.


They island hopped big time. Though they spent centuries not going much of anywhere. They first ended up in Tonga, Samoa and Fiji, somewhere in the ballpark of 3,000 years ago. They didn't get to Hawaii and New Zealand until about 900 years ago. By which point they already got to Easter Island ana Rapa Nui. Polynesians were people who could sail not just hundreds but thousands of miles no problem. What's interesting is that New Zealanders and Hawaiians are more closely related than either is with Fijians, as both came from a population in the Society Islands. The impressive thing is they had links to South America that may well predate their permanent settlements in Rapa Nui. Sweet potatoes are native to South America yet they were found in the Cook Islands when the first Europeans arrived there. And were found on other Polynesian islands as well. This means that when Polynesians sailed over the horizon, they weren't sailing away to go wherever and be gone for good, they had regular routes they sailed so stuff could go back and forth. And indeed the sweet potato is not the only example of something the Polynesians spread around.

2012-06-14 11:20:42 PM
As for the sailing abilities of the Polynesians, this map marks Easter Island aka Rap Nui. Polynesians got sweet potatoes there from over in South America. And this map shows both Easter Island and one of the larger Cook Islands. Where Europeans found sweet potatoes when they first arrived. Note the distance from the Cook Islands to both New Zealand and Hawaii.

And for the fun of it, the red A here marks the Society Islands where Hawaiians and New Zealanders come from. The Society Islands were inhabited for centuries, dating back to at the latest the middle of the first century CE. And yeah Polynesians could sail so well they could easily hit such small islands out in the Pacific and travel back and forth.

Pacific Islanders are a whole other group from Native Americans. Native Americans are related to the Asiatic people of Siberia and to a lesser degree Mongolians and some others. Pacific Islanders are related to certain populations in the Philippines, Malaysia and places north of there.

For my part, it touches my heart to see the way the RNC has been inspired by God in this way. It seems as if the person responsible for crafting these ads was truly in tunes with the promptings of the spirit. The Asian origins of the people of central America have been well documented for nearly two hundred years. Is it POSSIBLE that the descendants of Lehi's family (to say nothing of the brother of Jared's people) were contemporaries of other Asians who arrived by way of the Bering Straight as well, but it would be a historical travesty to make this into political mudslinging and overlook the plain and simple truth of the Lamanite origins of Central and South American people. I know with every fiber of my being that this has been revealed to us in these latter days.

I would like to bear my testimony that I know the RNC is true, and the only true political organization on the face of the earth today. By abiding by its principles, we can become closer to our Heavenly Father and share in family life through the eternities. It is my hope that you will all come to know this, by the power of the Holy Ghost. I say these things to you in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, Amen.

Nadie_AZ: "The sun is setting, just like I am. With leaves falling. And other signs of a dying person in the circle of life. And we came from boats from Asia. I think. Here. Read these plates of gold. Not paper, but gold. Because we have copper helmets and breastplates, but can't figure out how to make paper."


Ether 12:26 "And when I had said this, the Lord spake unto me, saying: 'Fools mock, but they shall mourn; and my grace is sufficient for the meek, that they shall take no advantage of your weakness'."

Of course the Nephites knew how to make paper. When Captain Moroni sent his letter to Judge Pahoran, desiring that the men should be gathered together to strengthen the armies of Helaman, do you think he was writing on golden plates then? That would be ridiculous. It is obvious that the plates were used as a means of preserving holy records. Paper records never would have survived 1400 years buried in the moist earth of either the Manchester County Cumorah OR Veracruz's Cerro Vigia. If the Nephites were really using plates for everyday writing instead of paper, wouldn't we see archaelogical evidence of it everywhere? Come on. This is getting off-topic, anyway.
