The Newberry Tablet

Fascinating controversy about ancient Michigan copper mining. I'm just reading Susan Martin's traditionalist tome on the subject, and it reveals what we're in for here. But Genesis Quest aspires to do something no one else has done, which is so obvious and could yield such spectacular results that it would blow this controversy right out of the water. I have nothing against credentialed archaeologists, some of whom we hope to have on our show. But we will not be constrained by people unwilling to search for new evidence for something that multiple indications from prehistory suggest did occur: Egyptians, Minoans, and others came across the Atlantic to mine that copper to fuel the Bronze Age in Europe. Perhaps in the end we'll raise a healthy storm of controversy, and perhaps even prove our case. (I will not specify what we hope to pull off at some point: Wait, watch, and learn... Like Heinrich Schliemann, GQ intends to dig deeper.) The picture is the Newberry Tablet, which if authentic suggests what we believe the truth to be. Oceans were highways, not barriers, in prehistoric times; and the Egyptians and others were here in droves.
