OK Cliffy, I was just yanking your chain.
Regardless, according to Tonnington, in 1700, the global population was in the range of 600 million... Does it really (truly) make sense that there was a preconceived and deliberate program of genocide to eraser 1/6 of the global population by Columbus?
For some reason, you are hell-bent on waaayyy over-exaggerating reality to custom fit your agenda. The bottom-line is this: Columbus had no clue, designs or intentions of wiping-out a race. That is your imaginary desire that you yearn to believe in order to further a personal agenda.
Lastly, you haven't addressed my question regarding where amerindians originated from and whether or not they are considered "colonists" and therefore should be treated with the same derision that you treat all others.
