ah yes Columbus the great discoverer of America without him our founding fathers would not have built our great nation, and the native Americans probably would have been better off; but thats beside the point. you like myself have likely grew up learning that Columbus was this great man who paved our way to this plentiful land or more famously as the man who gave us the day off from school; how demeaning. of course it wasn't till recently that i discovered whats Columbus really did on the shores of America( ie. butcher, slaughter, rape, and pillage or just about how every white explorer did back then. the truth about Columbus was that he was a failure ( he failed about 3 times till the Spanish king thought it was enough; first was a trade route to china, second his promise of more gold than you have use for, and finally his gift of Indian slaves who died due to European disease) people also believe that Columbus was the first to believe that the world was round, but by then it was already an accepted idea(kinda like evolution in our time). the truth was all Columbus really did was discover America( even then there are conflicting information since there is evidence that the Chinese arrived on the west coast before Columbus), that he slaughter all the Arawak's( yes i do mean all as in not a single descendant left on the face of the earth), and that he dies in poverty( probably as a drunk).




Blaaah, i've never really been a fan of his prior to this thread anyway. Also, he wasn't the first, they said that the first one to see America continent was a sailor, of course he took all the credit, the captain dipshit. And America was there and if it wasn't he who discovered it, someone else would have done too. It's just the matter of time. Columbus contributed none to America's nowadays, really.


lol Why do people care? If he hadn't did what we did, we wouldn't be here today. I'm Italian, my ancestors were Romans. Caeser didn't say "I came, I saw and now I feel really bad about it" (Thank you, Spike).



Yeah... Columbus was lucky i wasn't on the boat with him otherwise it would have been me who discovered America. And i don't rape nothing


lol that picture of Columbus makes me laugh. He looks like Christopher Walken.



Really ?! That pic reminds me of a guy whose name starts with P and ends with EDOPHILE.


lol nice one.

LOL, I remember bad-mouthing the topic in elementary school. (ignorant little kid then, ignorant adult[?] now). He would have been perfect for U.S. government work - if you mess up, instead of getting fired, you get promoted so as to cause fewer problems in the future.

no he did discover anything. but he did make north and south America more known in Europe making it possible for them to explore more. if it wasnt for him it would have taken much longer for the Americas to be explored and colonized.

The more I know this, the more I can never believe in history.
So can you find the real history of Muhammad Islam's Prophet?
