The Chinese Discovered America…well, First.

According to a map recently brought to the attention of the world, China discovered America first, but never exploited her. It seems a Chinese map collector, Liu Gang, came across a map from 1763 that is a copy of a map from 1418. The map was drawn by Mo Ti Tong, and was derived from a book, The Marvellous Visions of the Star Raft, written in 1418 about Admiral Zheng He’s explorations around the world. The map is currently being analyzed for authenticity…if proved to be an original, we shall soon hear that the Chinese first discovered America, and, apparently rejected exploiting her. Hmm…. sounds a bit fishy to me.
