    You probably learned a bit about Christopher Columbus at school, but one documented historical fact that you probably overlooked is that Columbus believed his discovery of the New World was necessary in order to fulfil an ancient prophecy.

    What exactly did Christopher Columbus mean when, circa 1500 AD, he wrote about America in one of his famous letters: "God made me the messenger of the new heaven and the new earth of which he spoke in the Apocalypse of St John after having spoken of it through the mouth of Isaiah; and he showed me the spot where to find it."[1]
    Santa Maria

    Christopher Columbus produced a famous book, the "Book of Prophecies"[2], containing over 200 biblical and patristic passages which he compiled, but how many people understand why?

    When Columbus made his case to win support from the Vatican and the Spanish monarchy, at the centre of his manifesto was a millennial prophecy about the destiny of the land that he would discover. A "New World" was to arise in the West to fight a final Crusade against the Arab powers of the Middle East.

    A war across such a vast distance, over thousands of miles of sea and land, would have seemed unlikely at the time. Yet, as the new Millennium dawned, soon after the Year 2000 AD, events were set in motion that would fulfil the prophecy.

    how is he the most celebrated icon in america's history? He was corrupt, a bully, tortured, killed, and enslaved native americans including kids.

    He got lucky by being the first of his region to make it to america, which his dumbass thought til his death was east asia.

    brilliant explorer? icon? no he is a lucky guy who cradled salty balls for years to finally get permission to travel and is responsible for bringing corruption to america.

    and therein lies the spirit of manifest destiny. thats fine if you wanna take that imperial route, but don't turn around and claim to be doing the work of god. your god jesus spoke out for the weak, the botched, the second class citizens. the kingdom of heaven is within you.

    and yet we are the first country to step forward and abolish slavery.. and have came a long way from the inequalities of the past.. and tbh.. we sorta have to praise the pain's of the past for being courageous enough to make it thru and build the foundation of our country.. instead of playing the victim card.. BC we aint no where near the victim..
