Who discovered america?

i discovered america

most people believe that americas were discovered by christopher columbus... but some people disagree with that and say that vikings from scandinavia had been coming to north america even before christopher columbus!

for all the people freaking out saying they christopher columbus or the vikings didn't discover anything 'cause the natives were here first.....................seriously? let's say you have a secret that nobody knows about... you've kept this secret to yourself for your whole life... then, someone comes along and gets you to tell them your secret, and they go and tell the whole world... you would probably say that that person "discovered" your secret, right? discovery is about the collection and dissemination of information... yeah, the natives were here first... but they did not spread the word across the globe 'cause they did not have the technology to do so... so far all intents and purposes, columbus discovered the americas...

native americans, even they are not native to 'america', 'native americans' originated from asia across the bering strait between alaska and siberia... that's why numerous native indians have asian like facial features... not to mention native alaskans look very asian... also the indigenous of the 'latin americas' are branches of native americans... so in conclusion asians are pretty much the race that discovered 'america'... no one can say that these natives were already there first, why? 'cause us human race all originated in one place and this is after the pangea...
