The Holy Cross of Jesus Christ My Catholic Christian War Book My Catholic Christian War Book Powerful Stuff Powerful Stuff There is a prayer book which I am very fond of "Santa Cruz de Caravaca, Tesoro de Oraciones." Which means, "Holy cross of Caravaca, Treasury of Prayers." This book has a collection of prayers dating as far back as the middle ages. It's prayers were heavily utilized by the sailors, of Christopher Columbus's era, and the Jesuits which accompanied the conquistadors on voyages of exploration. In this book you will find prayers calling on the powers of Jesus Christ, Virgin Mary, and the Holy Spirit for salvation. Anyone reading these prayers would be assured overcoming tribulations at sea, hostile natives, hurricanes, typhoons, drowning or burning. There are prayers of peace and protection for the home, and any environment an individual would see himself in. There are prescribed prayers in Latin, for exorcising evil spirits, demons, or dark forces, in the name of Jesus Christ. There are pr ...

Christopher Columbus believed in the Bible. It was the Lord who put into my mind... I could feel his hand upon me. There is no question the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit because he comforted me with rays of marvelous illumination from the Holy Scriptures. Christopher Columbus. ( from his diary, in reference to his discovery of the New World).. Note this is the reason given by Columbus as to why he chose to challenge that the world was flat(science)as opposed to round because the Bible states that the world in fact is round.
In the early modern period, the voyages of Christopher Columbus initiated European exploration and colonization of the American continents and are thus of great significance in world history. Christopher Columbus was an Italian navigator from the Republic of Genoa that became an admiral for Spain. H…

Interesting Facts about India... 1. India never invaded any country in her last 10 years of history. 2. When many cultures were only nomadic forest dwellers over 5000 years ago, Indians established Harappan culture in Sindhu Valley (Indus Valley Civilization) 3. The name 'India' is derived from the River Indus, the valleys around which were the home of the early settlers. The Aryan worshippers referred to the river Indus as the Sindhu. 4. The Persian invaders converted it into Hindu. The name 'Hindustan' combines Sindhu and Hindu and thus refers to the land of the Hindus. 5. Chess was invented in India. 6.

I'm not South Asian any more than Russians are North Asian. I'm not ASIAN Indian or EAST Indian. There are 1.3 billion of us - we don’t need a cardinal direction, OK? It’s not our fault that Christopher Columbus got lost. Sure, we love our states, but there’s strength in numbers - 1 out of every 6 human beings is Indian, so stop dividing us. The British already did that - once. And we need to quit saying that we're not Indian because I wasn’t born here or sound like this or eat that. Our HEARTS are Indian. We are feelers.

Christopher Columbus discovered this island in his second voyage to the New World...
On August 6th 1962, Jamaican independence day was born! After years of Spanish and subsequent British colonial rule, Jamaica was finally allowed to govern it’s own political, economical, and social affairs. The Spanish claimed the Island in 1494 when Christopher Columbus discovered it on one of his voyages to the Caribbean. The British took over in 1655, after a short battle with the Spanish, but that only lasted until 1834 when slavery was abolished, and Jamaica gained more and more control of its affairs. In time, the emergence of Marcus Garvey preaching black nationalism, Alexander Bustamante leading a national labor strike, Norman Manley and his cousin (Bustamante) forming opposing political parties, and the first national election of 1944, the stage was set for eventual independence. Independence would finally arrive on August 6, 1962. With it, Jamaica was officially recognized as an independent nation…

Guadalupe Peña 2 hrs · There are but 155 years which time...the world will come to an end," wrote Christopher Columbus in his book Libro de Las Profecias, composed in 1502 between his 3rd and 4th voyages. "The sign which convinces me that our Lord is hastening the end of the world is the preaching of the Gospel recently in so many lands." Though his predictions were off, Columbus revealed his motivation for setting sail AUGUST 3, 1492, with the Nina, Pinta and the Santa Maria on his first voyage to find a sea route to India and China, as an alternative to traveling by land through Muslim territories. Muslims, called "Moors," had invaded Spain in 711AD. With a cavalry of 80,000, wielding curved scimitar swords, they "went through all places like a desolating storm." The Mozarabic Chronicle, 754AD, recorded that thousands of churches were burned and: "God alone knows the number of the slain." In 846 AD, 11,000 Muslims sacked Rome, Italy, and looted the Basilica of St. Peter, desecrating his grav ...

TODAY IN CATHOLIC HISTORY Regina Magazine Olaf II of Norway is Canonized as St. Olaf by Grimketel, the English Bishop of Selsey in A.D. 1031 (years later this would be confirmed by Pope Alexander III.). The Siege of Algeciras commences during the Spanish Reconquista in A.D. 1342. Christopher Columbus sets sail from Palos de la Frontera, Spain in A.D. 1492. Pope Leo XIII publishes the Encyclical Licet Multa (On Catholics in Belgium) in A.D.1881. Today is the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost and the Finding of the Relics of St. Stephen on the Traditional Calendar, the Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time on the New Calendar and that of St. Lydia on both Calendars.
On August 3rd in 1492, Christopher Columbus began his famed journey in which he discovered America: only 500 years after the Norse had already created a settlement at L'Anse Meadows in Newfoundland; and several thousands of years after the First Nations crossed the Bering Strait by land bridge to settle in North America. Oh well, better late than never. :)
Colonial expansion under the crown of Castile was initiated by the Spanish conquistadores and developed by the Monarchy of Spain through its administrators and missionaries. The motivations for colonial expansion were trade and the spread of the Catholic faith through indigenous conversions. Beginning with the 1492 arrival of Christopher Columbus and continuing for over four centuries, the Spanish Empire would expand across most of present day Central America, the Caribbean Islands, Mexico, and much of the rest of North America including the Southwestern, Southern coastal, and California's Pacific Coast regions of the United States. In the early 19th century the revolutionary movements resulted in the independence of most Spanish colonies in the Americas, except for Cuba and Puerto Rico, given up in 1898 following the Spanish-American War, together with Guam and the Philippines in the Pacific. Spain's loss of these last territories politically ended Spanish colonization in the Americas.
On this day in 1492 illegal immigrant Christopher Columbus set sail on a voyage that would bring many diseases to America.

Fun Fact Friday: 1893 Chicago World’s Fair- Among the well-loved commercial products that made their debut at the Chicago World’s Fair were Cream of Wheat, Juicy Fruit gum and Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. Technological products that would soon find their way into homes nationwide, such as the dishwasher and fluorescent light bulbs, had early prototype versions on display in Chicago as well. The U.S. government also got in on the act, issuing the country’s first postcards and commemorative stamps and two new commemorative coins: a quarter and half dollar. The half dollar featured Christopher Columbus, in whose honor the fair had been staged, while the quarter depicted Queen Isabella of Spain, who had funded Columbus’ voyages—making it the first U.S. coin to honor a woman.

Home Who Brought the Slaves to America? By Walter White Jr., 1968 Book coverThe story of the slaves in America begins with Christopher Columbus. His voyage to America was not financed by Queen Isabella, but by Luis de Santangelo, who advanced the sum of 17,000 ducats (about 5,000 pounds-today equal to 50,000 pounds) to finance the voyage, which began on August 3, 1492. Columbus was accompanied by five 'maranos' (Jews who had foresworn their religion and supposedly became Catholics), Luis de Torres, interpreter, Marco, the surgeon, Bemal, the physician, Alonzo de la Calle and Gabriel Sanchez (1). Gabriel Sanchez, abetted by the other four Jews, sold Columbus on the idea of capturing 500 Indians and selling them as slaves in Seville, Spain, which was done. Columbus did not receive any of the money from the sale of the slaves, but he became the victim of a conspiracy fostered by Bemal, the ship's doctor. He, Columbus, suffered injustice and imprisonment as his reward. Betrayed by the five maranos (Jews) whom ...

I have the distinguished honor of being on the Committee to raise $50,000,000 for a monument to Hillary R. Clinton. We originally wanted to put her on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not enough room for two more faces. We then decided to erect a statue of Hillary in the Washington, D.C. Hall of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed. It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside her husband William J. Clinton, who never told the truth, since Hillary could never tell the difference. We finally decided to place it beside Christopher Columbus, the greatest Democrat of them all. He left not knowing where he was going, and when he got there he did not know where he was. He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone else's money. Thank you, Hillary R. Clinton Monument Committee P.S. The Committee has raised $2.16 so far.

For all the people that don't agree with the immigrants being here in the US. First learn your history before disagreeing. How do you thank the indians felt when the Englishman and Spaniards took over there land. From what I learned in history class Christopher Columbus discovered American and he wasn't a native indian of this country. He also always an immigrant. We all are immigrants, if it wasn't for are ancestor who immigrated to this country we wouldn't be here an there would be no America. If little kids are willing to leave their family, country and everything (witch is hardly nothing) they have to come to this county, it must be really bad over there. We should try to help them and their country, not throw them back like they were trash.

Treatment of Native Americans Throughout History of Americas Throughout colonization of New World, Native Americans have been treated ambivalently. Some tribes have been respected and treated like humans, while others have been treated like savages and less than human. Settlers and explorers occasionally treated Native Americans well, but later treated them poorly in order to access supply on Native American's lands. After much bloodshed and trickery, white people forced Native Americans to leave their lands and travel hundreds of miles to new reservations all over United States. English settlers of Virginia Colony greatly mistreated Powhatans, Indian tribe that inhabited area that is now Virginia and Chesapeake Bay coast. Spanish massacred Incas and Aztecs, while Christopher Columbus caused destruction of Natives in Caribbean Islands. When Columbus sailed across Atlantic Ocean in search of easier passage to India, he discovered Americas and landed on shores of Caribbean Islands. His expedition brought wi ...

So Puerto Rico has been voted the best Island in the U.S. according to USA Today. While there isn't much competition, it really is a special place. I came across this list of 10 reasons why: TOP TEN REASONS WHY Puerto Rico IS THE MOST SPECIAL PLACE IN THE U.S.A. Gastronomy. Puerto Rican cuisine is the most vivid manifestation of our unique culture, which melds Taino indian, African, Spanish and U.S. influences and traditions. Music. Salsa, danza and myriad other forms of music can be heard everywhere, almost at any time. This includes the nocturnal sounds of our tiny singing tree frogs called "coquís." History.

Please read all of this. Then decide for yourself if you still want to celebrate Columbus day! I knew Christopher Columbus had done some bad things, but had no idea it was this bad. This really sickens me to know we have a holiday honoring this man. Christopher Columbus Was No Hero! by Robert Hawk Storm Birch I would like to share with all of you what I have emailed to the Puerto Rican Governor. Attention Sir Governor Alejandro; I am Sachem (chief) Hawk Storm of Schaghticoke. We are of the Algonquin people on the the east coast. I am speaking on behalf of our brothers and sisters who were decimated by this man with whom you choose to immortalize in the form of a theme park and statue. I implore you to understand how truly wrong this action is. To us this would be no different than erecting a statue of Hitler and glorifying his tyrannical actions. I'm going to share with you the true story of this man Christopher Columbus who this country holds such high regard for. And please know that if this plan goes f ...

“I wonder why a people as large as we are, engaged in as many activities as we are engaged in, have waited so long to think of addressing ourselves to the subject: The Middle Passage, Our Holocaust! It is our holocaust because this is a holocaust that started 500 years ago and it is not over. We do not start our count at 6 million, we start counting at 60 million, and we have just begun to count. Now, I do not mean to negate the German and the European holocaust. Whether the number was 6 or 60 million, even if it was 3 million, it was wrong. But it was a problem started in Europe by Europeans. There is no comparison between this tragedy and our tragedy which was the single crime in the history of the world. Why haven’t we memorialized our dead? It was almost like the crime of not burying them!” - John Henrik Clarke, 'Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust."

Out Of This World Communion is a central part of our worship on Sunday mornings. It’s a simple time when we eat a small wafer of bread (that represents the body of Jesus that was broken for us) and a small cup of juice (representing the blood Jesus shed on the cross). Every week millions of Christians take part in this special “meal” to remember the love and sacrifice Jesus showed to us on the Cross nearly 2000 years ago. But there was a time when a man partook of communion and wasn't even on earth at the time. Do you know when that was? The date was July 20th, 1969 (45 years ago). The place was the Moon and the man was Buzz Aldrin. American astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong exited the Lunar Module Apollo 11 to be the first men to walk on the face of the moon. Most people know that bit of history but they have never heard that Buzz read scripture and took communion before he began his famous walk on the moon adventure. When interviewed later the reporters wanted to know why he chose to take ...

I make fun of myself for being overweight (If you're on here, you knew that). Maybe too much. Sorry if that bugs you. It's mostly done as a response to the lame fat jokes I hear from other people. Everyday. It doesn't bother me to be called fat. I am fat. Just be creative. I don't think saying, "Hey. You could stand to lose a few," or "Boy, you've really gained some weight" makes you the Christopher Columbus of weight loss. Or maybe it does...because I've already discovered that I'm overweight. And now you want credit for it. It's lazy. Which is how I wound up overweight. You don't want that, do you? I'm my favorite subject to laugh at. (Sadly, a good argument can be made that I'm my favorite subject...period). So it's cool. Just make it funny and we'll laugh at my clown together.
A Grand Master, an Imam, a rebel freedom fighter, a secret society member, the former head of the most prestigious Martial Arts orders in China, the enticer of the European colonialists, a medicine man and a man of spiritual power, A Sufi.

In addition, his long silver beard flowed over his chest like a shimmering waterfall. ---Grace Xiaogao, granddaughter. Situated one hundred and eighty kilometers north of the Forbidden City (Beijing), Cangzhou is part of the Hebei province, and is home to the Hui.

Christopher Columbus is very significant to Canadian History because he discovered North America and gave Europeans a base to build from. He set off trying to find India, in order to trade, but instead came upon the land that would one day become two of the worlds best countries on earth. This event fully began the entire western civilization, it affected over 1800 million and still affects 900 of those million. These changes are still affecting us today, and will still affect us until the Americas are destroyed. Christopher Columbus can’t show us much because he didn’t face as many challenges are other explorers but one of the mistakes he made was, when he was trying to make peace with the natives, he took a few natives prisoner. This we can learn from. You could say that Canada is not truly Canadian, it’s English, or you could argue that because Columbus violated laws by taking the native captive (or making the treaty in English, and not explaining it well enough), Canada belongs to the first nat ...

By Attorney Legrand H. Clegg II It’s October again and the nation pauses once more to celebrate Columbus Day. On the twelfth of this month, schools, banks, government agencies and other institutions suspend regular business to pay tribute to the famous Italian navigator who is alleged to have discovered America. Most historians, archaeologists, anthropologists and other scientists and scholars now know that Christopher Columbus did not discover America. Not only were Native Americans present when he reached the New World, but also Chinese, Phoenicians, and Europeans, among others, had been sailing to the Americas thousands of years before Columbus ventured across the Atlantic. Adding to these facts is a recent book, The First Americans Were Africans: Documented Evidence, written by a brilliant African American scholar, David Imhotep, who holds two Ph.D.s. Of course, Dr. Imhotep is not the first person to draw attention to the African presence in the Americas before Columbus. After colossal Negroid stone ...

A day that I will never forget!
Christopher Columbus didn't ask permission to explore America why should I ask permission to use the bathroom
Why in the *** do we not celebrate the Sun? Some civilizations have and do so, but in the U.S. we do not. Why the *** would we possibly consider creating a holiday for a ruthless, gold-feigning psychopathic, mass murderer such as Christopher Columbus. I say to *** with that absurdity of a holiday. I think the Sun, the Moon, and Jupiter all need days of celebration because if either one would have somehow not existed, we wouldn't be here. We owe our way of life, our existence, and our planet as it is to these objects. Be grateful.
I love how school taught us that Christopher Columbus was like an amazing hero, when really, he was a murderer and a rapist. WHAT ELSE HAVE YOU LIED ABOUT PUBLIC EDUCATION???

THE QUEST OF MUNGO PARK: KINNUPE WAS EL-DORADO (Part I) Today we all look towards Europe, the Mediterranean, the Middle East or even Sri Lanka whenever the topic of the geographical location of the mythical Olympus, the legendary El Dorado or the religious Garden of Eden is broached. Nobody looks towards Africa today whenever the question of the location of Paradise is mentioned. But in the past the ancient peoples used to look to Africa as the original Paradise or the Garden of Eden of the ancient scriptures. The ancients have always known and have always believed that the Garden of Eden was located in the heart of Black *** Africa on the very banks of the River Niger somewhere in the Central Sudan section of West Africa. The ancient Europeans also believed that the Table of the Sun, the greatest spiritual power in the world, was in the possession of the so-called ‘primitive’ tribes of West Africa in general and ancient Nigeria in particular.

Tortola is the largest and most populated of the British Virgin Islands, a group of islands that form part of the archipelago of the Virgin Islands. Local tradition recounts that Christopher Columbus named it Tortola, meaning "land of the Turtle Dove". Columbus named the island Santa Ana. The later Dutch settled and called it Ter Tholen, after a coastal island forming part of the west coast of the Netherlands. When the British took over, they altered the name to its present-day Tortola.

Why has the lie become the truth and the truth become a lie ask yourself. Science history religion all proven wrong yet we continue to trust and belive in it. Science tells us fossles bones and carbon dating tells us how old earth is. Been proven wrong 50 years ago still we belive.History is propagated by racist men who boldly lie to futher white supremacy case and point Christopher Columbus found america full of black people so called indians who were reading and writing diffrent lauange some middle eastern writing some even had the 10 comandments here but he discovered america its a bold lie but we teach our kids this any way religion lies include taking gods words and twisting them to mislead millions even adding pagan beliefs to ruin gods work.

I find it extremly offensive that we still celebrate Christopher Columbus's discovery of America. How could they discover something that is already inhabited by a group of people whos way of life was more advanced than their own. The Indians were so advanced in their thinking they had no concept of land ownership. Land to them was to be shared.
They were thief and we let them get away with it for so long... then we have to pay restitution's for freedom with the wealth of our country to have and keep a piece of our land.

The Emerald Isle has always been a land of mystery, myth and legend from Irish leprechauns to Celtic Druids. In the land known for fairies and the Blarney Stone, is it any wonder that sometimes truth is stranger than fiction? In honor of the patron saint of Ireland and St. Patrick's day, here are some of the strangest and weirdest true facts about Ireland and the Irish. According to Irish legend, Ireland's St. Brendan discovered America 1,000 years before Christopher Columbus. - Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, was not Irish but was captured and taken to Ireland as a slave. More at: Who Was the Man Known as St. Patrick? Dame Alice Kytler was allegedly the last witch in Ireland. She was born in Kilkenny in 1280 and married four times. All of her husbands died, and Dame Alice was accused of poisoning them. Today her home in Kilkenny is called Kytler's Inn and operates a restaurant. : Ballygally Castle in County Antrim, Ireland, is considered to be one of the most haunted places in the country. As ...
And the results are in! If I teach Western Civ or World History, I generally ask on the Final, who were the 5 people who most influenced (either Western or World) civilization between 4 million BC and 1588 AD? (Spanish Armada, which is my cut-off for both classes). This semester it was World History, and the question was given as extra credit, so the voting pool was small. But, the results are, as usual, interesting. Alexander the Great won with 9 votes. He was immediately trailed by Christopher Columbus, with 8. Next in the tally, Jesus Christ tied with Elizabeth I of England, 4 votes apiece. Muhammad got 3. Socrates, Augustus Caesar, Julius Caesar, Buddha, Confucius, Joan of Arc and Martin Luther each got 2. The one-vote wonders were: Homer, Hammurabi, Cleopatra, Hernan Cortes, Genjhis Khan, Charles Martel, his grandson Charlemagne, Leonardo da Vinci, Hannibal Barca, Henry VIII of all people!, and - I was delighted to see - Shi Huang Ti, the meglomaniac strongman who first united China (and thus may hav ...
How many groups reached the Americas before Christopher Columbus? |
Great snippet of the PBS series "Black in Latin America". I am overjoyed that this series exist and hopefully there will be more discussion on this matter. As a child I found it so strange that even though I learned in my history classes that Christopher Columbus killed all the indigenous ppl of Hispaniola we still consider ourselves "indios". As I got older and studied Latin American studies in College I learned how imperialistic and colonialistic ideologies are still current today in Latin America. Everyone is afraid to be considered "Black" when the mixture is what makes Latin America so beautiful and diverse. Hopefully my generation and future ones end this ignorance and truly embrace our heritages.

A long post but worth the read: A Prayer for Persecuted Christians Everywhere by Leonard Sweet In elementary school we all learned the ditty: “In fourteen hundred and ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” Convinced by Christopher Columbus that a new, faster route to the rich spice regions of India could be found by sailing east instead of south, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain financed an exploratory mission for this new route. Instead of India, Columbus found the New World — the lands that lay across the Atlantic Ocean from Europe. In the long run it was a very good deal for Ferdinand and Isabella. But while Columbus was floundering about in the sea, the royalty of Spain had some other big-idea irons in the fire. Ferdinand petitioned the Pope and was granted permission to start a serious investigation into the religious orthodoxy of those under his rule. This ecclesial exercise became known as the “Spanish Inquisition.” It seems 1492 is a year when both new, exciting frontiers ...
The history of hurricanes in Puerto Rico starts with the arrival of Christopher Columbus to the island in November 19th, 1493. Even though the island was "discovered" that year, the first Spanish settlement in Puerto Rico was established years later by Juan Ponce de León. This is the reason for having the first official records of tropical cyclones passing through Puerto Rico in the first decade of the 1500s. From that time on we have records of tropical cyclones in Puerto Rico until the present times. The naming system of storms here was based on the catholic tradition of naming the storm with the "saint" of the day (e.g. San Ciprián on September 26th). There was also the case that storms repeated in the same day on different years such as with San Felipe I and San Felipe II on September 13th, 1876 and 1928 respectively. This tradition of naming storms that way ended with hurricane Betsy on 1956 which is still remembered here as “Santa Clara”. Years later with the passage of hurricane Donna in 1960 ...

blame Christopher Columbus dumbazz who thought he was in India
America needs to kick it up a notch with the foreign languages. English isn't the only language we should know! Spanish,French, German and Chinese will benefit any American greatly. I'm sick of reading people not wanting to learn another language in America to accommodate illegals but we are all foreigners in our land and Christopher Columbus didn't even speak English as his first language, and English wasn't even our countries first language!! Put a higher priority on foreign language for your children rather than the next electronic that is coming out.
My thought of the day: If Christopher Columbus never "DISCOVERED" america do you think we wouldn't have the problems we have today :(
Me:"why is it called cetchup and not ketchup?". Erik:"idk why don't you ask Christopher Columbus"
It's TRIVIA TUESDAY. did you know that cows first came to America with Christopher Columbus?!
Sigmund Freud is the Christopher Columbus of psychology.
Anyone know when and where Christopher Columbus died ?
My latest book, "Finding New Jerusalem" is now published and will appear on later this week. It's 244 pages, about the size of a RS/Priesthood manual. I have now started to write the next book. I've had some difficulty in deciding which I should do, I have material gathered for several more books and I thought I would write the book about the comment in 1 Nephi , "and I saw a man among the Gentiles" which we have believed for more than a century was Christopher Columbus. I will be refuting that. But what I decided to write is the one about the handcarts: "Finding the Mormon Handcart." This is not about the people or their suffering (not all suffered) but more of an engineering discussion of the cart itself. I will try to answer many questions about it, such as: Who designed the original carts? What were the sizes given? What type of wood was needed? Where were they built? How did they work out on the trek west? How many people were transported this way? Did they only go west? etc. So I'm busy w ...
He said Christopher Columbus was stupid I love Professor Stone
Tryna explore her body like Christopher Columbus.
"Tia if I'm Queen Sofia II of Spain and Chris is named after Christopher Columbus, does this mean I own him?" Probably not.
Sadiq had to go to "the quiet corner" during a lecture about the discovery of America, pilgrims and Christopher Columbus because he wouldn't stop voicing his concern on how Columbus or anyone "discovers" something if other people were already there first. I'm going to have a hard time with this kid, forreal.
During his presentation this dude said Christopher Columbus arrived in New York in 1942. 😂

Christopher Columbus was totally a hipster, he came to America before it was cool.
Find out the truth about Christopher Columbus:
So I'm at the gas station with Luke and I overhear these two home grown American racists talking about how all these "Latinos" should go back to Mexico. Cause you know. That's where we all originated from. Then one said "Puerto Ricans are just Mexicans that got lucky." Lucky?! Dude, if Christopher Columbus hadn't made the mistake of finding this place instead of India and then proceed to STEAL this land from the Native Americans, you wouldn't even be here. THAT'S lucky. *** uneducated hillbillies.
Back in 1992, the Deutsche Briefmarken-Zeitung, a German philatelic magazine ran an supplement about a hundred years of Columbus stamps - entitled "The re-discovery of Christopher Columbus". I bought a copy at ebay recently.
This was so unbelievable at first... Until I decided to surf the net and only to believe that it is true... :3 August 2014 has 5 Fridays 5 Saturdays & 5 Sundays... ^_^ Scientics related that this happens once every 823 years... Strange they call it a repeating calendar...Nevertheless I felt like Christopher Columbus for a while there... :v Anyways August is gonna be a long month... people... :*
Love his story how they leave all this out but mention Christopher Columbus
SNACK 4 U 2 DAY. He Succeeded through Failure Christopher Columbus was obsessed with the idea that he could get to the East by traveling west, but by sailing west he never did reach India. He failed, but changed the course of history by discovering America, a great achievement. If you set out to do something great enough, what you do incidentally may be of more significance than that which is accomplished on purpose by someone else. (from A Treasury of Bible Illustrations )
I've been reading a book about a man named Ernest Shackleton, he made an attempt to be the first to cross the Antarctic continent on foot back in 1914. He chose this adventure because others had already claimed the title of first to the South Pole and first to the North Pole. The world was running out of notable adventure, and he very much desired to be notable. In our day it seems you would need to leave the planet itself to truly be an explorer in the vein of Magellan, Christopher Columbus, or David Thompson; there are simply few new horizons yet to be conquered on this Earth by which a person might make a name for themselves; and yet, these people had to have been great, in some measure, before they arrived at their goals, or they never would have made it in the first place. Greatness is not in the destination, but in the determination to get there. King Solomon proclaimed thousands of years ago that there was nothing new under the sun, but we each have our own journey; and are those heavily traveled h ...
