Who discovered America?

“Who discovered America?”
“Cristopher Columbus!”
“That’s wrong…”
“Ah, yeah! There were some Vikings before him…”
“That’s also wrong…”
“Really? Who do you believe discovered America?”
“Well, the native Americans… obviously… or to be more precise, the Pre-Clovis people… as far as we know today.”

Here’s a great discussion from voanews.com on who really discovered America.

And to add to the non-Columbian theory of the discovery of America, there might have been Neanderthals/Denisovans in America some 130 000 years ago, as well!
