    Perhaps it's because the "idiots" you speak of are capable of putting things in their proper perspective.

    Lands can be inhabited without being "discovered". The Native Americans crossed into America on a land bridge from Russia that has since vanished. Technically, "they" are the ones who "discovered" America - but they didn't.

    They didn't because "discovery" is recognized when new territory is claimed by a country or the person (explorer) who makes the claim on behalf of that country.

    Columbus was the first to do this and thus he is credited with "discovering" America.

    Vikings, Muslims...even Charlie's Angels could have been here before Columbus. But unless they made claim to the land before Columbus, they did nothing but enjoy a vacation.

    Muslims always try to claim things others have done. Only bad things can be committed by Non-Muslims...according to Muslims...

    First things first,Vikings where the first people to discover America.But they were not a people of big and thoughtful culture so they have not left many clues for us and it was not a big of discovery for us or them too because they left America really quickly.

    The people first to travel west across the Atlantic or east across the Pacific were people that had the least distance to travel, and there are artifacts to prove this to be the case. From the east of the Americas, northern islanders, like the vikings, from the west (also known as the far east), people north, such as from Siberia.

    Found does not mean the first, nor does it imply the first, e.g. I found my keys, I am not the first person to find keys.

    Why do idiot anonymous trolls think that they can make ridiculous claims without providing a hint of proof? No intelligent person thinks Columbus discovered the Americas, but if you're going to claim that Muslims did, and that they founded colonies there, you're going to have to show some evidence. You can't expect that anybody is going to buy into that nonsense. We know you haven't got any proof because this ridiculous theory is all in your teeny tiny little brain, but just so you know, it's completely retarded.
