Tap 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. Read the text. 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 ability of the English NEW WORLD mental model, which is a myth, to overcome something CARVED in STONE. If your kids or grandkids are not taught all the known facts about the BOURNE STONE, then the true reality of North America has been suppressed by omission. The 17th century English Protestants wanted the mental model of North America to be that "No one crossed the Atlantic from east to west before "Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492."
Because the English "NEW WORLD" nyth prevailed, knowledge of LENAPE ancestors was over whelmed because the knowledge of Catholics, who spoke Norse is NOT carved in stone. When knowledge NOT not carved in stone is omittted from the records at any time, that knowledge is lost to the following generations.
Educators have been teaching the NEW WORLD myth for five centuries. The stones in North America have lain around for much longer then that. But today you can see that the English Protestant NEW WORD myth is more powerful than something carved in stone.
LENAPE ancestors were Catholics, who spoke Norse, but they were NOT carved in stone.
NOTE: This is a course on LENAPE. LENAPE were Catholics, who spoke Norse in eastern North America from about AD 1,000 to the time of the English invasion.
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?
