Re: [FairfieldLife] Time to ditch Columbus Day?

Just wondering if Eric Kasum would have been born had there been no Columbus, 
much less have his education, wealth,freedom to pursue his hearts desire, and  
all the leisure time he seems to have to think and write  about peace and 
justice.  Columbus was a man of his *time* as is Eric Kasum.  Kasum judges 
Columbus based on what are normal values today, not what reality was then. 
Kasum compares Columbus to the peaceful Arawak Indians, not the blood thirsty 
Mayan or Aztecs, go figure(sorry willie).We don't celebrate Christopher 
Columbus for his personality but what his contribution has done for mankind. 
Columbus's accidental discovery lead to further exploration and development 
that has given us what we have and are today. Thank you Chris!

Apparently the Vikings and off course India sailors discovered the earth 
wasn't flat either and way before Columbus.

There were a lot of people that knew the earth wasn't flat at that time and 
even earlier.  Education was not for the common man at that time. People 
struggled to just have enough to eat and a roof over their heads. Not a lot of 
time for anything else, much less ponder the shape of the earth or the orbit of 
the planets. I'm not quite sure it's fair to judge people from the past by the 
standards we set for our selves. We have an awful lot going for us today. It's 
kind of interesting to note that in Daniel's prophecy, that the end of 
times(change of the age) would be marked by a great increase of knowledge and 
the *coming and going*(travel) of people.
