Why shouldn't we banish Columbus Day?
What purpose does it serve other than to negate the Indians who were there before him? Please give me a SOLID argument based on facts.
I suppose the argument is more ls why is it a holiday many have off for (forced to celebrate). Look at a calender there is always somthing under national recognized days, weeks, months (yes there is a national ice cream day). As we are the land of the free and PC tolerant of just about everything I think it remains as it really dosent hurt anything and would cause more of a stir getting rid of a tradtion. Never can all the people be pleased at the same time.
I think it started out as a reminder to the history we are taught as I was not around back then I can not say which argument that has sprung up about Columbus is actually true or false. For that matter who the first person was toactually "discover" a large land mass that already had homo sapians on it to begin with.

Geneticists have seen their synthetic DNA evolve, but this would not have been possible without external input, that is, human intervention. So why do some consider it unreasonable (atheists and theists for different reasons) for God to have done the same?http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/04/20...
