Most scientists now reject the idea that the first Americans came by land
How can we believe anything these "Scientists" say!  They keep changing their minds!   :whyyou:

It's been one of the most contentious debates in anthropology, and now scientists are saying it's pretty much over. A group of prominent anthropologists have done an overview of the scientific literature and declare in Science magazine that the "Clovis first" hypothesis of the peopling of the Americas is dead.

The earlier Americans-to-be probably got a deal on that used ark. Though it was probably a bitch getting it down off Ararat.
Are we there yet?

Interesting. I remember reading some of the early hypotheses about this, just randomly, back in early 2000s, but it was based on a single find of ...I don't even remember what.... I think a small encampment and the remainders of what appeared to be dugout canoes maybe?  Kinda cool that more evidence has surfaced to change our minds.
