    Re: Sea crossing in ancient times

    Speaking of impossible sea crossings, a mere 40-50 years ago it was
    considered totally impossible for the Vikings to have reached the New World.
    Today it is accepted fact. Their writings told of "blue people" in the
    southern seas and that was accepted as proof they were telling tall tales.
    Until the 60's, when new translations turned "blue" into "blue-black" the
    color of Ravens. And some African tribes with very dark skins. And again,
    the impossible became documented fact.
    Now there are more debates about how man got to the New World, including
    theories that *europeans* and siberians may both have traveled along the
    side of the ice cap during glacial times, when it came down further.
    Impossible? A very much overused word.
