[quote]Eh, he had explained something weeks ago that if I remembered, I would have been able to figure it out. It's just been so long since I had seen that it was out of sight out of mind. [/quote] Still no reason to take his negativity on yourself, in my view. ...

[quote]Species with Amnesia by Robert Sepehr.[/quote] I'm somewhat familiar with it. I'll download it later and look through it. Alternative history books are always fascinating. The big problem is trying to fill in gaps in the historical record with what amounts to conjecture. I have little pati...

re: The whole "white man stole the Indian land" crap... - crazy4lsu
The DNA evidence points to a proto-Siberian population, along Y-DNA and Mt-DNA lines, which almost certainly rules out any peoples we call European currently. I believe even a skeleton found on sites associated with non-Native American tools had DNA that was almost certainly native. The tools issue ...

[quote]The ones we know likely slaughtered the "real real" natives before Europe even knew how to sail that far.[/quote] We haven't found evidence of a proto-American population that predates the Amerindian migrations though. Native peoples certainly fought with one another and did so plenty. Wit...

re: The whole "white man stole the Indian land" crap... - crazy4lsu
Developing population groups that are distinct from other population groups would meet most people's claims about who is indigenous and who isn't, otherwise you fall into nonsense claims that no one is indigenous to any land. Amerindians are as indigenous to the Americas as the Finns are to the uppe...

re: The whole "white man stole the Indian land" crap... - crazy4lsu
They are almost certainly indigenous to the Americas then, even if they had Neolithic origins, as the Y-DNA markers of most of Amerindians are distinct from the population which is equivalent to the Siberian proto-population. Given the degree of sophistication of those civilizations, it's hard to ar...

[quote]i read Howard Zinn as well. [/quote] I've actually never read Zinn. My interest in Native American history began with the book by Cabez de Vaca. There is another book written by one of the members of Cortes's party that is among the most interesting books I've read. After the Tlaxacans sp...

re: The whole "white man stole the Indian land" crap... - crazy4lsu
It's a very complicated situation. Some land was bought and sold. At the same time, the US Government often went back on treaties signed with Native American nations. In fact, of the 500 treaties signed between the US Gov and Native American tribes, nearly all were broken in some way, a fact which c...

re: Is this how blacks felt in the pre-civil rights era? - crazy4lsu
Probably not. Conservative men, especially conservative white men, have most of the institutional power in the country. Even if they have lost some instruments, an assertion with which I do not agree, they have the vast majority of the wealth in the country. There isn't any comparison to black peopl...

The first quarter playcalling was great. I do wish we would do more back shoulder throws, hitches, circle routes as we have some rare talent at WR. Bubble screens would be good too. ...

re: Something that will blow your minds - crazy4lsu
I'm not sure what your point is here. American style and dress is popular in large parts of the Muslim world save for the Gulf. That's just from my own travels, which include North Africa, West Asia and South Asia. The big problem is now the Gulf Arab ideology and dress is seen as orthodoxy, whe...
