The title subject is meant to provoke serious scholarly research on the above question. The Earth scholars have the responsibility to find and deliver the truth about history (the advanced alien in the above film trusted the scientists to deliver his message to the national leaders on Earth). The answer to the question is very important because the truth can help correct misconceptions and misinterpretation of the recent Earth history which clearly exhibited human prejudice and racial discrimination as the source of human conflicts. Finding correct answer to the question above would shed some light on the development of human civilization (European, Asian, African and American) and their interactions as well as how they might have developed differently if the truth were known. Would it be possible, by knowing the truth and the existence of advanced civilization, the Earthlings might leverage its past and progress to a more harmonious
‘Planet’ future rather than engaging in violent atrocities committed in conquest, colonization and wars?
Ample evidence suggest that the Oriental people discovered the American Continent. One cannot brush aside these evidences simply because they were not scholarly discovered. Their importance lies in the fact that the Western and Eastern civilizations are coupled through this type of historical event. The Orient visited America way before Columbus perhaps multiple times. They elected to leave the American Continent in peace rather than practicing colonialism as did the Western powers, the Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, and British. If colonialism were not practiced in the past centuries, the Earth world would be in a more harmonious state today.
Christopher Colombo (aka Columbus, an Italian, 1450-1506), completed four voyages (1492-1503) across the Atlantic Ocean under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain. He initiated the Spanish colonization of the New World, hence referred as a colonizer by historians. Colombo’s voyages turned exploration to conquest and colonization (committed atrocities against the natives) that lasted several centuries. Contrary to common belief, there are nine categories of evidence that support the theory that the Chinese had discovered America way before the time Columbus explored the New World. We shall present them below category by category with reference names so the readers can search further for details. Some of these findings may be ‘non-scholarly’ established circumstantial evidence but each category deserves a serious scientific investigation. Collectively they present a convincing proof that the Chinese discovered America (particularly North America) but they left the New World in peace.
The nine categories of evidence:
I. Ancient Maps – Several ancient maps have shown that America (including today’s California) was included. (Missionary Dr. Hendon Harris maps, Charlotte Harris Rees, Secret Maps of the Ancient World, Dr. Siu Leung Lee, 1602 Chinese world map proves Chinese circumnavigation before 1430 and Ming Chinese pioneered in developing America, and 1507 Waldseemuller map and 1570 Ortelius Map)
II. Huge Stone Anchor – In Ming Dynasty, Zheng He made seven exploratory voyages using fleets of large ships (many times bigger than the later Columbus ships) reaching as far as America from China. The stone anchor discovered off coast of California could only be used by Zheng’s large ships. (Charlotte Rees, photos)
III. Carved Calligraphy of Chinese Symbolic Words – Many carvings were discovered on huge boulders and rock walls in North America, and these carvings were identified as Chinese symbolic language. (Petroglyph and Pictograph, John A. Ruskamp, Jr. Asiatic Echoes and H. Mike Xu, Origin of the Olemec Civilization)
IV. Ancient Artifacts – Many ancient artifacts were discovered in South and North America. (Charlotte Harris Rees, the Asiatic Fathers of America, 2006)
V. Plant Species - Peanuts traveled from South America to Asia across the Atlantic Ocean and back to North America. California giant Sequoia tree was found on ancient map. (Charlotte Rees)
VI. Clues in the Language – Chinese and American Indians have some common language, for example, the greeting, hao, used by both. The word Peru came from the Chinese word Biru meaning white dew. Ortelius map of Peru, 1574, showed R. de China (river of Chin) and Da Rien which means tall people (Da Ren in Chinese) (Francisco A. Loayza, Chinese Arrived Before Columbus: an Archaeological, Transcendeantal Thesis, 1948)
VII. Chinese Pyramid – Pyramids in South America were attributed to be built with Chinese supervision. (Dr. Robert Schoch, Voyages of Pyramid Builders, 2003)
VIII. Human DNA – Though denials were promoted, the four main haplogroups (types of mtDNA) prevailing in American Indians rarely found in Asia, but the ‘founding’ haploytpes are shared between the two continents. (Dr. Simon Southerton of Australia, Losing a Lost Tribe, 2004)
IX. Historical Trails – Ancient trails travelled by ancient visitors manifesting the arrival of Chinese were retraced by modern believers including the “Medicine Wheel”. (Charlotte Rees, Did Ancient Chinese Explore America?, 2013 and references in I.)
The above evidence lends strong proof that the Chinese indeed discovered America. The Ming Court allowed Zheng He to explore the New World beyond China Sea in seven voyages between 1405-1433, but after learning the New World being a primitive civilization, the King ordered destruction of Zheng’s maritime records and banned further exploration by forbidding construction of large ships, a clear intention of leaving the New World in peace with no desire to conquer or colonize it. Just imagine if this knowledge were known to Columbus, perhaps Christopher might take a different approach to the New World from practicing colonization and slavery? Knowing that the Chinese had more advanced civilization and left America alone; perhaps the Western Courts would follow suit. Then the Western Nations might not focus on naval competition leading to colonial wars and eventually invading China. Perhaps Japan would not feel inferior and wanted to copy the West, militarism, colonialism and all. Perhaps, the belief in superiority of Western civilization and the doctrine of superior races (such as Anglo-Saxon-British Empire, German-Nazis or Japanese-Imperial Japan) would never flourish to create two world wars.
The Chinese were never an aggressive people (no DNA of 'colonialism'). The Chinese had always been advanced in culture, technologies and philosophies. Their defeats by the Western powers including the Japanese were never because they were inferior or primitive rather because they had long adopted ‘the harmonic world’ as their political philosophy. Ironically, today the right wings of Japan and the U.S. are touting a ‘China Threat’ as a military dogma to justify arms race and military expansion. This is the precise wrong approach that had led to WW I and II.
If the Chinese who first came to America decided to colonize America like the Western explorers did, what would be America like today? Researching the true answer to the central question above should make us think - in the light of the alien wisdom in the North-Wise movie. The West and East civilization rivalry is not a superior versus inferior confrontation. The East need not feel inferior and the West can not feel superior. The Japanese should remember that their founding masters/teachers were the Chinese scholars in the first place. Asians had to absorb the Western technologies just like the renaissance had been benefitted from the Eastern civilization. On Earth Planet, mankind should have learned the evils of colonialism and imperialism from the past and the evil of socialism and capitalism in the present. The Greeks and all earthlings must realize, we must help ourselves and then others to be a harmonious planet!
