@Marttin 76 .
I agree. As Fleming and the Penicilin..but for the accident.. it is necessary to be there... Fleming and Colón were!Christopher Columbus was looking for the Indies, and thought he had found them when he first made landfall on SanSalvador, in the Bahamas. That is why he called the inhabitants 'indios' He never set foot on the American mainland. He found 'the New world' by accident. This occurred because he had underestimated the circumference of the world.
You should add PROTESTANT books... and Las Casas... a SOLDIER and then a Friar.. and a professional liar and slave holder. Of course, there were excesses.. that Crown condemned (Elisabeth Last Will 1504, Laws of Burgos, 1512, trial to Colón)...but not a deliberate act of elimination...and of course, we should talk about the CARIBES... yes because the Protestant, Comunist, Freemasons books don´t talk about them or they said... CARIBES were a gang of pacifist Hippies made love and not war... I would like very very much one day that people find true Caribes...and we see if they change their mind and say.. oh my God...Come the Conquistadores, please! Caribes were anthropophagous ... they only ate human flesh. Their Razzias were organized to hunt human for eating...Compare to them, US or Australian serial killers .. are a band of innocent little angels ... some cherubs ...The destruction the Spanish caused to the indigenous peoples discovered has been dealt with in a great a great many books,
Nor you nor me were there to judge them. No matter, what Freemasons, Comunist or Protestant said... For me, it is more important the indians saw Spaniards as liberators against the Caribes´ ruling Terror.
Yes I agree with you but if we add "our Protestant, Comunist and Freemason opinon"...and we add after Brutal "however, the Caribes, the Aztecs, Aymaras, Quechuas, Charruas, Guaraníes, Tupis, Agua-Omagua, Carijonas etc etc"... were hippies, pacifist, vegetarians, vegans till the Spanish Monsters arrived there... breaking the "Paradise"...still it is better. To watch a youtuber judging them from a house in America that he has because they preceded him ... it is ashamed and disgusted.From our position, the Spanish empire of fifteenth century can be seen as pernicious, avaricious and brutal. I think that perspective is a bit simplistic .These events need to be assessed within the context of the times, and the people involved.
I agree with your post in your general lines. Around 70%.
By the way.. why is this thread in South America? Colón arrived to North America.
