For Min ~ Boats

Post by circumspice »

It's been too quiet around here lately. Boring!
Anywho, this is for Min.

Interesting. I wonder if he ever read Bednarik's work on H. Erectus sailing the Pacific about 800,000 years ago. I find the whole "swept out to sea by a storm" routine implausible. It would take more than two people to establish a viable colony.

More likely this thing was done is short stages, "island-hopping" as they called in it WWII.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

He's fairly down to earth & open minded. He just wants to see some more substantial evidence. He also acknowledges that new info crops up so often that any of his videos can become obsolete at any time. I like his videos because he doesn't set himself up to be the all knowing authority on that or any other subject.

That's better than the Clovis-First types who insisted that their view was the only one possible and attempted to destroy the careers of any who disputed them. Once pre-Clovis sites were identified they had little choice but to cling to their outdated theories for dear life.

Always best to leave a little wiggle room.

Another one that's close to Min's heart: Seafaring Neandertals... (Crete)
