ToC on RUNESTONE; BOURNE STONE Try to find the phrase "Hanno takes possession" in the Historical Society's web site. Can you find it? Where is it"
Then search for BOURNE STONE Wikipedia. Did the BOURNE STONE HISTORICAL SOCIETY deliberately hide "Hanno takes possession? Did your teachers teach you about the BOURNE STONE and the possibility that the marks on the stone may say "Hanno takes possession?" What you are witnessing, TODAY, is the power of a PARADIGM over something CARVED in STONE. If your kids or grandkids are not taught about the BOURNE STONE the true reality of North America has been suppressed by omission. The 17th century English Protestants wanted the paradigm of North America to be that "No one crossed the Atlantic from east to west before "Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492."
Educators have been teaching that paradigm for five centuries. The stones in North America have lain around for longer then than. But today you can see that the English Protestant paradigm is more powerful than something carved in stone.
NOTE: This is a course on LENAPE. LENAPE were Catholics, who spoke Norse in eastern North America about AD 1,000.
The LENAPE used the "HA" syllable, but rarely.
Some times the "HA" syllable is in an adjective word referring to trade. Think of "Hackensack," New Jersey.
But in the ancient records, there are references to other voyages to America. A few of them refer to relatives of Hannibal. These relatives lived in the western Mediterranean.
These voyages may have occurred nearly 1,000 years before the NorSse rowed boats to America. The "HA" syllable was used often in the names of the relatives of Hannibal.
DISCUSSION Do you think the stone that Mr. FLether found was carved by:
1) Hannibal's relatives,
2) LENAPE, or
3) an English boy, who wanted to fool his teachers?
