Quote# 103115The Portuguese Christopher Columbus!!
The Italian Genoese "Christopher Columbus" is just a 500 year old MYTH created by the Vatican to take the place of the real Genoese Discoverer of the New World–John Cabot!!
Washington Irving–a famous 19th century U.S. writer–was just one of the creators of the fictional Christopher Columbus:
Christopher Columbus, or Columbo, as the name is written in Italian, was born in the city of Genoa, about the year 1435. He was the son of Dominico Colombo, a wool-comber, and Susannah Fonatanarossa, his wife, and it would seem that his ancestors had followed the same handicraft for several generations in Genoa. Attempts have been made to prove him of illustrious descent, and several noble houses have laid claim to him since his name has become so renowned as to confer rather than receive distinction. (Irving, Life & Voyages of Christopher Columbus, p. 17).
According to Irving, Columbus–the son of a wool-comber–was a manual laborer who prepared WOOL for spinning. There is an expression in English: "to pull the WOOL over your eyes" and it means to lie or deceive somebody....That is what Irving did with the wool!!
It is almost impossible to unmask the real Portuguese Columbus without looking at the career of another fake Portuguese discoverer named Ferdinand Magellan.
The 2 greatest fake discoverers in the entire history of the world came from the Vatican created country of Portugal!!
After Zarco arrived in Spain from Portugal in 1487, he joined the witness protection program. That means that he assumed a totally new identity and became known as Christopher Columbus from Genoa, Italy. This was done to protect him from the wrath of the Portuguese and substitute him for John Cabot–the real Genoese Discoverer of the New World.
The Dominican and Franciscan monks normally bitter enemies–cooperated in creating the myth of the Italian Columbus. During the past 500 years, vast fortunes and oceans of ink have been used to perpetuate and keep the myth alive.
We feel confident that Christopher Columbus was Portuguese and that his real name was Salvador Fernandes Zarco and his ancestors were probably VIKINGS!!
