PP Editor: Pre-Columbian visits to the Americas according to those blasted Mainstream Historians is of course not politically correct. Bloody gatekeeper Wicked-Pedia also forbids any pre-Columbian contacts with the Americas, condemning any proof as “unsubstantiated” or “pseudo-archaeology” Who needs Wicked pedia’ s politically correct lens on history OR the present. I just go there to see what is “allowed” by the PTB (powers that be) I wish deeply in my heart that there was another wiki that covers everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! I am tired of censorship.

When you “Startpage” the “Global Flood” you get to a WickedPedia page called “The Flood Myth”. Can you believe it? When you look up “Fu Sang” on Wicked Pedia you get the same treatment: Mythological story and “the American hypothesis was all but refuted by the time of the First World War.” These following two articles will blow your mind on how the Chinese around 450 AD visited Fu Sang, probably North America, one thousand years before Columbus. And Chinese people visited them also two millennia before Christ! Enjoy! [SHUN Wicked-Pedia!]


Before America, Fu Sang


The Everything Under Heaven Map

by Ernie Diaz

Perhaps you find the Internet’s bitter gift – the red pill, disillusionment – a little tough to swallow. Very well, take it in small nibbles. Start with the fact that no white man discovered America, not even those sea-savvy Vikings. It was the Chinese, more than four thousand years ago. And no, they weren’t dragging their knuckles across frozen land bridges, but sailing over with compasses and cosmological charts. 

DaYuFloodMind-blowing? Only to those who have taken their history like most of us take our vitamins:  mass-manufactured, sugar-coated, and 98% worthless. Meanwhile, we have brave souls willing to follow the evidence trail, no matter where it leads, much as Da Yu (Yu the Great) sailed from China at the command of his Emperor to chart all under heaven, and re-establish the four directions. That’s the beauty of China. Even history so ancient as to embody myth has been documented. Yu’s Shan Hai Jing, the Book of Mountains and Seas, is the world’s oldest geography. And its most compelling chapter is that on Fu Sang, the land to the East, the Americas.

Sure, sure, so some guy Yu wrote a book of fables that could be construed as referring to the New World.” Cynicism is a feeble weapon against disillusionment. Confucius himself, in Chapter 6 Verse 1 of the Analects, tells us, “Truly straightforward was the historiographer Yu.”
‘Yu said it’, – Kongzi.  For Yu describes a land almost twenty thousand li, or ten thousand kilometers, away, and ten thousand li, or five thousand kilometers, across. The book also describes plants such as corn and tobacco, habits of aboriginal Americans, and geographical features that correspond so closely to those of Mexico and America’s west coast that you’d practically have to worship Fox News to call it coincidence.

Alright, so how did ancient Chinese mariners ever rime it all the way over to the US, millennia before GPS, coast guards, and Love Boats? The truth can easily be subsumed beneath the mountains of information that pile up higher with each passing year. But Edward Vining, a nineteenth century scholar, did meticulous research on the advanced sailing techniques of ancient peoples, including the Chinese, and published it in 1885, in a book called Inglorious Columbus.

Furthermore, he told of a great thermal ocean current, a sea road such as the Vikings made such skilled and gory use of. It originates in the equatorial regions of Southeast Asia, flows north along Japan, on up to pass south of the Aleutian Islands, then down again to the northwest coast of America, flowing southwards along the shores of Oregon and finally petering out around central California.

In 1962, the Long Beach Independent Press ran a story of three amateur sailors who made it from Yokohama to the Long Beach docks after a 57-day, non-stop trip. Skipper Joseph Pachernegg told reporters, “The trip was so easy, an old woman in a rocking chair could have done it.”


Certainly so could have the ancient Chinese, with their compasses and ruddered ships. Oh yes, and their maps. In 1973, Dr. Hendon Harris, Jr. published a book, “The Asiatic Fathers of America,” claiming that the ancient Chinese arrived to become patriarchs to many of America’s so-called aboriginals.

The son of missionaries, Harris grew up in Taiwan, translation of the Shan Hai Jing his great avocation. But not until he discovered an old map, in an antique shop in Korea, of all places, did everything lock into place. The “Everything Under Heaven” map showed not only land masses roughly equaling the size and shape of Africa, Europe, and Australia, but also Fu Sang, the Americas.

Everything Under Heaven for Sino-Dummies
Names on the map, their locations, and descriptions in both the Shan Hai Jing and the fifth century Liang Shu, cemented his conviction that Chinese much further from Columbus than he from us traveled and documented vast portions of the not-so-New World.
There was “Equal to Heaven Mountain”, matching the location and description of Mt. McKinley, the highest point in North America.

“Chasm of the Bright Mountains” must surely refer to the Grand Canyon, for nowhere else in the world are there mountains renowned for their luminescence yet beneath the earth’s surface, and 1500 li from Fu Sang’s west coast, at that.

“White Lake at Cha Hill” corresponds in location and description to Mexico City’s Lake Texcoco, five interconnected bodies of water, since drained and much reduced.

Then there were the accounts of monk Hui Shan, who journeyed extensively through Fu Sang in the 5th century, only to return to laughter and dismissal at the royal court, eight centuries before Marco Polo got the same treatment. His tales of “Decorated Head Country”, on the Yucatan Peninsula, must indeed have sounded fabulous to those who had never seen Maya nobles and warriors in their ultra-elaborate head gear. Ridiculous too, the tales of “Women’s Country”, the matrilineal Hopi tribes with their “snake husbands”, men who saw the serpent as both their progenitor and protector.


ColumbusNOTfirstNo doubt pseudo-skeptics, those who valiantly strive to stitch up the millions of rents in the fabric of our official mythologies, could and have had a field day poo-pooing such speculative, unscientific research. Lucky for them the concept of Chinese in America at least a millennium before Columbus, common on American curriculums in the early 20th century, was thrown down the memory hole after the advent of his national holiday in 1934.

Lucky for them also that solid scientific evidence isn’t nearly as important as media-directed attention in making things so. Big deal, so UCSD archaeologist James Moriarty discovered Chinese stone anchors off the coast of Palos Verdes, as reported in the November 25, 1979 issue of the San Francisco Chronicle. The anchors were encrusted with enough manganese to indicate they had been lying on the sea floor for at least 3,000 years.


If that seems old and suspect by its lack of coverage, how much more must the following 1882 Canadian newspaper account?

“A few weeks ago a party of miners, who were running adrift in the bank on one of the creeks in the mining district of Cassiart made a remarkable find. At a depth of several feet the shovel of one of the party raised about thirty of the brass coins which were the type used for currency in China for many centuries. They were strung on what appeared to be an iron wire. This wire went to dust a few minutes after being exposed but the coins appeared as bright and new as when they left the Celestial mint. They have been brought to Victoria, and submitted to the inspection of intelligent China-men, who unite in pronouncing them to be upward of three thousand years old. They bear a date about twelve hundred years anterior to the birth of Christ.”

Ah well, if truth were common currency, there would be little to write about. We’ll save the Chinese roots of Native American tribes for your next nibble.




PP EDITOR: Do you really think that these coins are to be seen or found anywhere in American Historical Museums? Forget it! Most likely they are long purged away from the books and showcases! It is not P.C! (Politically Correct!)

Try to ‘Startpage’ “Chinese stone anchors” with “James Moriarty” for a change, will you find anything? Only alternative blogs with articles like these, not a word on any official historian website. Someone should dig up that SF Chronicle article.

Mainstream History institutions are guilty of purging all artifacts and giant human remains that could oppose and falsify Darwinism and its “millions of years!” This is the sole reason and cause for all the establishment censorship.

Concerning Chinese artifacts, in Meso (Middle) America you will find these “Olmec” jade statues: They don’t look very “Olmec” or African to me! Rather Asian, and I am from Taiwan! But Cross Atlantic travel is just as taboo as Chinese cross Pacific travel!


In other words, the Historical University Departments and Academia are fully controlled and hijacked by the Darwinism pushing global elite. And you can hardly blame the poor History students and even some professors and lecturers, because they have been trained in error, and don’t know any better!

Of course when they come face to face with the truth of Forbidden History and Revisionist Archaeology, they have a choice to make. And that is the hard part. If you have a job in the “higher halls of learning” and especially a top job and have published the mainline deceptions, you are very reluctant to give all that up, especially when it’s going to hit your pocket book.

Just imagine what the wife will say, “You’re gonna give up our career for so-called truth!? Are you mad? I’m going to divorce you and get the kids and the housa and the car! Goodbye!” That is a tough choice to make. It is like anyone coming out for truth in whatever anti-establishment controversy it may be! 9-11, Oklahoma bombing, JFK, and whatnot.

So folks, there is little hope of taking back the country, the government, the army, academia, and all other power centers. But maybe, if you are really interested in real truth, it will make you start questioning Darwinism and why they are pushing it so much in education and the media! And perhaps you will regain your faith in spiritual things that are purposely denied by these spurious philosophies or rather religions like Macro Evolution. It is a full scale hoax to stop you from being an independent thinker and to be saved for eternity. Beware!


Fou-Sang or Fusang, a 5th Century Chinese Colony in Western America?

 fusangzatta1776 Zatta Map of the Pacific Northwest Showing Fusang

East of the Eastern Ocean lie the shores of the Land of Fusang.
If, after landing there, you travel
East for 10,000 li, you will come to another ocean, blue,
Vast, huge, boundless.

This ancient poem, written by a 3rd century Chinese poet, describes a place that is often referred to in Chinese folklore as the “Birthplace of the Sun”. It was a place well known in ancient China. It appears frequently in poetry and around the 2nd century BC, one Han emperor is said to have sent an expedition to colonize this land.

Where was the legendary land of Fusang? Eighteenth century mapmakers placed it in North America, usually near what is today Washington or Vancouver. These cartographers, most notably De L’Isle and Zatta, mapped Fusang based on a popular essay written by the French orientalist historian Josepth de Guignes in his 1761 article “Le Fou-Sang des Chinois est-il l’Amérique? ” De Guignes was a dubious historian at best, but with this he may have been on to something. Fusang is most fully described on by the 6th century itinerant monk Hui Shen.

Hui Shen is said to have been a mendicant Gondaran monk and to have appeared in the court of the Emperor Wu Ti at Jingzhou in Southern Qi in 499 AD. His adventures, which are described by Yao Sialian in the 7th century Book of Liang, describes his voyage in both known and unknown lands.

Starting around 455 AD, he traveled to the coast of China, to Japan, Korea, to the Kamchatka Peninsula, then to Fusang. Fusang, he reports is some 20,000 Chinese Li (about 9,000 km) east of Kamchatka. This would place it somewhere around what is today British Columbia, roughly where Zatta and De L’Isle map the colony of Fusang.

While it is a subject of ferocious debate, numerous scholars and historians have embraced the idea that the Chinese not only visited the New World but maintained regular contact with it. We have long known that, given the advanced stated of shipbuilding and navigation in ancient China, the Chinese were capable of launching expeditions across the Pacific. The real question is, did they?

The story of Hui Shen is one of the few actual documents that describe such an voyage. Hui Shen’s tale, which offers anthropological and geographic commentary consistent with Pacific Coast of America, describes Fusang in considerable detail. Over the past 200 years numerous scholars, both eastern and western, have broken down the Hui Shen text. Some have declared it a fabrication, but most have embraced the idea that the Chinese did in fact not only visit America, but maintained a minor but active back and forth communication.

Though many scholars agree that the Fusang tale does have some element of truth, few agree on where it may have been. Some point to Peru (Hui Shen describes the leader of Fusang as the “Inki”), others to Mexico (Fusang = Maguey), and still others to British Columbia (most likely arrival point sailing east from Kamchatka with the easterly North Pacific Current).

The name Fusang (Fou Sang) itself is derived from Chinese mythology where it is a land or tree in the east from which the Sun is born. This kind of plant, or something similar, is described as common in the Land of Fusang. Fusang is billed as a kind of all purpose plant which can be eaten, made into clothing and made into paper, etc. There is considerable debate as to what Fusang may have been, with some identifying it with the Maguay of Mexico, others with various types of Cactus, and still others ancient varieties of corn (which were common along the Pacific Coast of North America).

There is some, but not significant, historical evidence to support the idea that the Chinese were active in Ancient America. Ancient Chinese coins, ship anchors (James R. Moriarty of the University of San Diego), and other relics have been discovered along the American coast – some dating back as much as 2,000 years! Also, Hui Shen’s descriptions do correspond somewhat with what we know of the New World around 450 AD. It is far too much for this short blog post to breakdown the details of Hui Shen’s narrative, especially when it has been done so well and so well by others, however, our list of references below can offer significant further reading.

    PART II youtube  were scrapped, but you can watch this interview with CHARLOTTE REES HARRIS: Enjoy!

    PS: Concerning a question in the above interview: Why don’t the Chinese make the Chinese discovery of America a feather in their cap? I am sure that the real reason is rather that, as Marxists, they are not interested in proofs that falsify Darwinism which is so important to Marxism being an atheistic philosophy, and they don’t want to knock that.

    A Chinese classic, the Shan Hai Jing, reportedly from 2000 BC claimed travels to the ends of the earth. However, today many, while accepting the antiquity of this account, believe it was just mythology. But was it?Testing the hypothesis that the Shan Hai Jing described actual surveys of North America, Charlotte Harris Rees, author of books about early Chinese exploration, followed an alleged 1100 mile Chinese trek along the eastern slope of the US Rocky Mountains. The Chinese account should have been easy to disprove. In the travelogue Did Ancient Chinese Explore America? Rees candidly shares her initial doubts then her search and discoveries. She weaves together history, subtle humor, academic studies, and many photographs to tell a compelling story.

    Following the hypothetical route for early Chinese exploration in the America’s put forth by Henriette Mertz in “Pale Ink,” Charlotte Harris Rees in her most recent book titled “Did Ancient Chinese Explore America?” provides the speculative details of what early Asiatic explorers may have encountered if they traveled along the length of the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains.

    Charlotte Harris Rees website is called ASIATICFATHERS.COM

    cHARLOTTEhARRISrEESCharlotte Harris Rees, author of Secret Maps of the Ancient World embarked on an exciting journey of discovery after finding out that her late father, Dr. Hendon Harris Jr. (the author of The Asiatic Fathers of America), had been right: the Chinese were in America thousands of years before Columbus. Charlotte’s book lays out overwhelming evidence (including DNA tests) in support of her father’s conclusions.

    For years after his death in 1981, Dr. Harris’ map collection lay forgotten in a box under his son’s bed. Hoping to verify their accuracy, Charlotte and her brother took the maps to the Library of Congress in 2003, where they have been studied for the last few years.

    In this exciting segment, Charlotte tells us how DNA sampling can reveal the entire migration history of a people, recounts her experiences with the Library of Congress, and shares her thoughts on why this startling discovery has been overlooked despite having been in plain sight. This is a great time to rethink history and to step into the thrill of discovery. Join us in this modern-day adventure!

  1. Fu-Sang wasn’t Chinese nation, originally they came from Goguryeo which was Korean Ancient kingdom from BC37-AD668, because people in Fu-Sang they called their leader as “DADARO” which was called prime minister in Goguryeo, exactly same word.
    Goguryeo was traditionally viewed in China as a Korean kingdom, but in modern times, the Chinese government began to recharacterize Goguryeo as a part of the Chinese empire rather than an independent Korean kingdom. Plz let you know about this thanks
