or... explained:-)



UWGB: Piri Reis Map

The Map Room: Piri Reis Map

Wouldn't you love to know what was on the right hand side of this map before it was torn off? How far East would this map have gone? How accurate would it have been? Who knows - maybe the other half will be discovered some day, in a back alley shop in Istambul...

Amazing how much knowledge was already in existence then. Somehow, ancients maps carry an aroma of mystery with them:-) There are actually quite a few maps or map-equivalent representations  that go quite a ways further back, possibly all the way into the 15th BCE. There even are archeologists who interpret some neolithic drawings as maps, possibly back 15,000 years ago. No general agreement for that yet though.

I guess people 3,500 years ago (15th BCE, not Capt Reis) were no dumber than they (or some...) are today:-)

BCE = Before the Christian Era, used as a standard in history/ archeology/ forensic pathology. The converse is ACE, After the Christian Era.

Free speech = you are free to offend anybody you want:-) 

Besides, as God of No Chihuahua, you must be getting an extra free pass or two...

Isn't it an Unexplained Mystery that, anymore, whenever anyone exercises his right of free speech; that some little member of the Politically Correct Police suddenly gets offended.  I guess that's why the Obama Administration wants to do away with Free Speech.  

There's too many true facts floating around out there.  It ain't good for us...

Very interesting!  There is so much we don't know.  I have always found the close mindedness of the "highly educated experts" amusingly at odds with learning and accepting direct facts!

What's wrong with that?   Shocked  I also say Black person.  Caucasian, Mongoloid, Negroid. 
I do not say African-American.  That is just weird.  I guess I would be a European-American.
