comment Did Pythagoras visit Judaea, Arabia, and/or India?
Thank you. The gymnosophists page on WP carries a passage from Clement of Alexandria's Stromata that sounds eerily similar to your quoted preface.

comment Is there a possibility that the Islamic civilization visited America before Colombus?
@YannisRizos I think that he offers his answer in the first sentence, i.e., "It's possibly, but unlikely". I don't think anybody who is unfamiliar with the basis for these claims can really answer this question factually.

comment How did shells, bones, and other trinkets work as currency?
Thank you. But this appears to largely be well-informed conjecture (primarily on why shells could work as currency). Do we know, for example, how Native American tribes used shells as currency? How rare were the shells used? Who decided such matters or was it completely arbitrary? I'm interested in how the economy worked using shells as currency.
