This might not be too appropriate here, but I would like to know what are the views of you guys out there. I have just finished reading the book 1421 - The Year China Discovered The World by Gavin Menzies. In the book, the author said that not only had China discovered America, they also discovered Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica , circumnavigated Greenland etc. Using a lot of deduction, including standing stones and traditional native DNA, he comes to a conclusion that indeed China was the first to discover the West, but unfortunately all records in China were destroyed during their 'closed door policy' years. Also it states that there are many unidentified wrecks off Florida that might be of wrecked Chinese junks. In my opinion, the story seems too good to be true. The book's website is at www.1421.tv .
