Im an old man, so Im not in school for a while now, so I dunno, maybe they arent still teaching that cristopher columbus discovered the americas, but assuming they are still teaching that...wtf?There is something weird about "history" and the perspective its taught from. Kind of like the beast in the book of daniel, history is described as this evolution of what we, (Americans,) are politicaly and economicly. We are givven this descreptive account over time, as to how civilizations evolved and influenced the develpment of the next one and basicly how it became us, the US. How man became civilized and civilization became america and everything else is an abberation. That is what was called world history in the US. So when they get to the part about christopher columbus, he convinces the greediest egomaniac in the furthest edge of the "world" to fund an expidition is really the part of world history that greed and exploitation was introduced to the "americas".First of all sweet potatoes are a different species of plant than yams. Sweet potatoes are american not african and it is a fact that they originated in the americas and have been cultivated since BC, yet sweet potatoes have als bee cultivated in polynesea for just over 1000 years. It has been pretty much proven through matching DNA that the polynesean sweet potatoes originated in south america. It is believed that polyneseans who are known for exploration of the open ocean "discovered" the americas, and found them to be occupied and thus left, but brought the potatoe back with them.That is the history of the world according to the sweetpotatoe.Which do you believe?
