If as the scientists evidence shows, the Anasazi 'migrated,' then why do the Pueblan tribes claim to be their descendants? Obviously, then, they are NOT. It's a bit like finding one's self admiring the brooklyn Bridge, and then being offered a chance to buy it. That's where the Hopi made their mistake. They bought the 'Anasazi Bridge' and now they're stuck with it. They no more are Anasazi than are the Seminoles of Florida, neither of which tribe displays the six-fingered hands and six-toed feet of the Anasazi. writerfella from his own researches knows where the Anasazi went, but you would have to ask the right questions before he would tell ya...

The standard view is that the "Anasazi" migrated from the Four Corners area to the Rio Grande area and elsewhere (e.g., the Hopi mesas).

I refuted your arguments about the Anasazi in this blog before. Readers can peruse the debate again at Anasazi = Ancestral Puebloans?

Refutation does not make or break a reputation, Rob. It simply means that you never avoid being "the White Man" at any given opportunity, in that you know more and better and therefore are superior no matter the subject. But you STILL don't know where are the South Orkney Islands...

I don't know more than most Indians do. I just know more about this subject than you do.

When you have some facts to support your fiction, please provide them. Until then, I have the evidence and you don't.

Evidence? Oh, writerfella sees. You're gonna sue the Anasazi for 'the disappearance,' because they left the scene of an 'occident' and likely are contributing to the delinquency of a minority...
See ya on the tennis court! Hey, you with the tennis shoes! Outta the gene pool!
