John A. Ruskamp, a biochemist and researcher from Illinois, has reported that he has identified a spectacular discovery that can change history, in the form of symbols. When he paid a visit to the Albuquerque National Petroglyph Monument, it caught his eye.
After consulting with experts about Native American stone writing and ancient Chinese scriptures To verify his analysis, he concluded that the message preserved in the petroglyphs may have been inscribed by a group of Chinese explorers thousands of years ago.
In some areas of archeology, it has long been claimed that the Chinese came to North America before the Europeans. Along with some renowned experts who have taken an interest in Ruskamp studies History may be rewritten, which does not mean that history books change from today to tomorrow.
"Any discovery that modifies the Asian presence in America in any way never convinces archaeologists who have dogmatically rejected the evidence for the presence of the Chinese in the New World," commented Ruskamp.
But the evidence found by Ruskamp appears to be authentic and has the potential to inspire more serious research on transatlantic relations. To date, Ruskamp has identified 82 petroglyphs that match Chinese inscriptions, not only in many places in Albuquerque (New Mexico) but also in the area of Arizona, Utah, Nevada, California, Oklahoma and Ontario. It seems that most of these objects were made by a Chinese exploration, although others look like a reproduction made by Native Americans for their own purposes.
One of Ruskamp's most devoted followers is David N. Keightley, Ph.D. and MacArthur Foundation Gesnius Award recipient, who is regarded as one of the best analysts of the ancient Chinese bone oracles. Keightley has helped Ruskamp decipher the scriptures he found. The Albuquerque petroglyphs date from the transitional period of Chinese calligraphy, such as 1046 BC. and 475 BC.
Michael F. Medrano, Head of the Research Department for the National Petroglyph Monument, has studied the petroglyphs at the request of Ruskamp. He has said, based on his more than 25 years of experience with native cultures: "These images have not been associated with local native tribes."
It is very difficult to date the petroglyphs with absolute certainty. The syntax and script found by Ruskamp seem to correspond according to experts to that used by Chinese explorers 2,500 years ago.
Ruskamp's conclusions have been reflected in a document entitled 'Ancient Chinese Rock Writings Confirm Early Trans-Pacific Interaction'. In this document it is stated that the evidence found points to the presence of ancient Chinese scriptures in North America, 2,500 years ago, which is why there was an epigraphic and intellectual exchange between the Chinese and North American populations.
