Re: Cruising sailor finds massive ancient temple site in Philippines

You guys that think you are so funny obviously slept through history class.

1. The silk road was established during the Achaemenid Empire

Now that was hundreds of years before Rome took over Asia Minor.

#2 After Rome took over the area, Asia Minor and all provinces were required to pay homage to Rome.

#3 The ancient Filipino alphabet is based on one from India.

#4 When the Spanish arrived they destroyed everything they could find. One Spanish priest in southern Luzon boasted of having destroyed more than three hundred scrolls written in the native character.

Now if any of you care to come cruising the Philippines, take your boat out and look yourself. I gave you the GPS.

P.S. Yesterday I met with Philippine Museum officials and will now be able to release the cave paintings and sculptures I found.

I guess you will put up a whole bunch of kid paintings here after I post those?

As I wrote.

A. Rome ruled Asia Minor.
B. Asia Minor traded with the Philippines.

I do leave a question mark at the end.

While they may look like big rocks from the distance, you can't see the lines of individual slabs that make up the structures.

Re: Cruising sailor finds massive ancient temple site in Philippines

i have not met many blond blue eyed philipinos.........though quite a few who look more chinese than roman.

you probably want to look at the migration of the polynesian and melanesian peoples,and the spread of islam in the region as a clue,if as you say you have found an ancient temple site....though bamboo and coconut leaves were the preferred building materials.......

Re: Cruising sailor finds massive ancient temple site in Philippines

Asia Minor traded with the Philippines? Directly?

It would be more accurate to say that the Romans traded with people who traded with people who traded with people who traded with the Philippines via Asia Minor, The Middle East, India and SE Asia.

My best buddy and myself have been visiting Cebu on and off for the past 25 years for vacations. He bought a property there 3 years ago and has a lovely filipino girlfriend. Somewhere to crash for me now when I go for a couple of weeks. I consider every time I go whether or not to do the same.

I love history. When I visit a country it is my habit to find out all I can as it explains a lot of the culture and customs.

The Philippines history is:

The Negritos from Borneo Sumatra and Malaysia.

In the 14th cent. Arab traders from Malay and Borneo introduced Islam into the southern islands and extended their influence as far north as Luzon.

The first Europeans to visit (1521) the Philippines were those in the Spanish expedition around the world led by Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan.

The Chinese began to visit the Island and settle from the 9th century.

NO WHERE in the history of the Philippines do I see a Roman mention. That is not to say its influence did not have a fleeting effect... but not a dominant one.

I hope you make lots of money and become very wealthy. I also hope that accuracy is portrayed in your historical assumptions.

Oh ye of little faith. The truth is out there.

Obviously none of you have truly studied history. It is a well known and established fact (oh those facs) that ancient man did not have the skills or tools to build Stonehenge, the pyramids, inca or mayan temples.

These were all built by visiting aliens (Chariots of the gods - remember?).

Or if you don't like those facts, then it is all a CIA plot. They built them all during WWII and have faked the history books. Just think the Roswell spaceship landings (there are those aliens again).

Time for me to put my tin foil hat on

Re: Cruising sailor finds massive ancient temple site in Philippines

@pbmaise

Pseudo-scientific posturing by people who believe themselves to be in possession of psychic abilities is laughable.

Of course the same lack of critical thinking skills which allows them to believe in such nonsense also prevents them from understanding why they're not being taken seriously.

There are people here who actually know stuff...

Dunno about Romans in the Philippines but the Greek Civilisation took a massive leap forward following Alexander's march E through Persia and into India..

Yes, it enabled the white mice hiding in the clothes of the Greeks to spread and take over the world.
