Columbus Day And Our American Heritage
Many countries in the New World and elsewhere celebrate the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas, which occurred on October 12, 1492.
This event is currently being challenged today by Icelanders, as several relics emerge such as the Kensington Runestone, and a Rotunda Style Templar church that predates Columbus off our American Coast line.
Recently the History Channel set out to do a documentary on trying to validate the Templar story and they raised some significant questions as to the credit given to Columbus as being Americas discoverer. The irony with the Columbus discovery is that the now famous Knights of Columbus are a church sanctioned equivalent of the Knights Templar, those thought to be the authors of the Kensington Runestone.
The Nina Pinta and Santa Maria arrived to the Americas bearing the Infamous Red Cross, the sacred symbol of the Templar's on the sails of all Columbus's ships.
Even though we officially celebrate today as our day of discovery by Columbus, the fact still remains that the significance of this date will remain a mystery for many years to come. Please click HERE to read more.
