CRANKY YANKEE BS: Early Visitors to North America (100* d) RE: BS: Early Visitors to North America 28 Aug 01


Take these FACTS for what they're worth and draw your own conclusions.

In Touro park, Newport Rhode Island, USA,. There stands a round stone structure of unusual shape, about 30 feet high. Inside, there is an alcove and chimney about 6 feet long and 3 Ft. high .
History says that it was here when the first English Settlers arrived.
Benedict Arnold (not the traitor and much later in history)oone of the first settlers, used it for a mill. We locals call it, either Arnold's mill, or the Viking Church.
Scandinavian visitors, in my experience, unanimously concurred that there are hundreds of exactly alike edifices all over Norway, Sweden and Denmark. They say that it is a pagan worship site.

Leif Ericsson called his (failed) colony, " Vinland" because of the wild grape vines that were growing there.

THE ONLY TWO PLACES IN NORTH AMERICA WHERE THERE ARE WILD GRAPEVINES GROWING TO THIS DAY, are the islands of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts and the island of "Rhode Island" "proper" (yes there is an actual Rhode Island) also called by it's Narragansett Indian name, "Aquidneck". On Rhode Island there are only three copmmunities, the town of Portsmouth, the village of Middletown and THE CITY OF NEWPORT.

As the tower was here when the first English settlers arrived, AND, THE FIRST AMERICANS (the Indians)COULDN'T HAVE BUILT IT BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE WHEREWITH OR THE TECHNOLOGY TO BUILD EACH ROW OF STONES EXACTLY PARALLEL AND LEVEL, NOR THE MORTAR FOR LAYING THE STONES.

Yoy draw your own conclusions.
