OOh ! Filosify !
Let’s take a look at that one shall we ?
= "my teacher sez "
Which is true inasfar as it goes - as we know the human race originated in Africa and walked from there to colonise the other land areas of the world. However this Filosifer then goes on to show that his teacha did not know what she was talking about when he says
But he just told us correctly that there were no “original people” - Oh does he mean the genetically modified Africans who walked through Asia, Russia exterminating other kinds of human as they went and then walked across the Northern Ice to Canada and down through the lower 48 into South America - All the while planting little flags of varying hues and writing names on maps, slowly mutating, changing skin colour and changing physiologically and in other ways such as IQ.
- Perhaps he will go back to skool and ask his teacha - if that is who she means ?
We’ve done that one already but perhaps he could ask his teacha about “Grammar” at the same time. and tell her - No he doesn’t mean his Mum’s mum ! - get her to look the word up if she doesn’t understand.
So we have this piece of land with scattered groups or tribes of ex-pat Africans making war on each other, with their wooden, bone and stone tools, taking members of other tribes as Slaves and sometimes eating each other living on it. Then another group or groups of ex-pat Africans who have the intelligence to build boats, smelt, cast and work metals and have learned the secret mixture of Charcoal, Sulphur and Saltpetre which explodes when ignited, come sailing over the horizon and decide to settle there
- is that what his teacha means by “invasion” - or is it some other ?
if it was these people I’m afraid I have a problem with his argument - to wit
taking it as a whole;
since it was these people who came sailing over the hoirizon and settled, who or whose descendents actually produced the name America - there can by definition - have been no previous “Americans”
- If he’s going to do this Filosify stuff - at least lets get the discussion on a proper footing
