How does "Barry" Fell (his real name is - unsurprisingly - "Whitley" Strieber) even DARE claiming that ANYONE reached the Americas before the great and magnificent Christopher Columbus?! For such a scholarly indiscretion, the man's works should be burned in effigy UNDER RITUAL FORMS. Bohemian Grove, anyone? I mean, this entire "Pre-Columbus voyage" crap is tantamount to claiming that continental drift is real, I MEAN COME ON, or that NASA can reach the Moon, or that humans are - dare I say it - related to APES!!! What will come next, I wonder? Claims that the ancient Phoenicians built Carthage, or that the ancient Greece circumnavigated the Aegean, or that the Egyptians (thick-headed peasants worshipping cats) built the Great Pyramid??? RIDICULOUS. Oh, yeah sure, a bunch of drunken Vikings (so-called) may have TEMPORARILY settled at Meadows something, but that doesn't count, and beside, Newfoundland aint really America anyway. Knights of Columbus, Kensington Grand Lodge, Minnesota, over and out.
