A good book on the subject is North American Sun Kings: Keepers of the Flame.

I mean, that must have been cold as f*ck and it couldn't have been just a stray family or an adventurous tribe. This had to have been a mass migration of thousands of people assuming the land bridge theory verified. There is plenty of evidence for it, but common sense still has me questioning.

They followed the mammals who were doing it. It was hunter and gatherer all the way back then.

There were 3 migrations to America, according to some scientists. There has been some DNA testing that apparently backs that up.

RE: Where did Native American Indians Originally Come From?
There have been numerous shows recently about this topic. America Unearthed is one. If you haven't watched that show I would recommend it.

While on topic I will share a quick story regarding this topic. I work for a global company and we hired an associate from India. Said associate came to the US for 4 weeks for training. This was the first time he has ever been out of his home country. While here we went out to a Mexican restaurant for lunch. He was blown away by how the workers there looked so much like him. He couldn't believe how much someone from India and someone from Mexico could look so similar.

The Clovis point people, originally discovered in Clovis, NM, are one of the early peoples nobody can agree upon. Some scientists prefer to think of them as a purely American people, some say the first American people. But there's evidence in Oregon for an older people, and there's evidence pointing to the origins of the Clovis people as coming from France.

The Atlantic was smaller at that time, since it's been widening at about 1 1/2" per year since that time. Ocean levels were probably a bit lower then too. So crossing the ocean wouldn't be the daunting task it is today. It's not as outrageous an idea as some scientists suppose.

But since that was over 20,000 years ago, it's kind of hard to tell.

Taking your numbers at the rate of 1.5 feet per year, 20,000 years ago the Atlantic was about 5.5 miles less wide than it is now.

Do you think 5.5 miles would make a difference when the Atlantic Ocean when its 3,000 miles wide?

That's one and one half INCHES - not FEET.

Had I meant FEET I would have written it 1 1/2' instead of 1 1/2".

Note the difference?

In the context of the Atlantic Ocean it doesn't make a difference.

A half mile, 5.5 miles what is the difference.

Excuse me?

If you think the difference between one and one half inches per year and 18 inches per year over a period of 20,000 years is only 4 miles, you aren't capable of continuing this conversation on an equal intellectual footing.
