: That doesn't look like you saying Heyerdahl accepts an Asian derivation

Now what?

Doug, the Big Archaeological Know-It-All, is not aware of the fact that
Hittites were based primarily in Asia Minor? Gimme a break...

And this is the guy who never tires of lecturing everybody about how many
books about archaeology he has read???

Now, to be sure, myself, I do not endorse the view of Heyerdahl that all
these cultural elements came to S and C America from Asia Minor. Being an
independent inventionist, I think a lot of this stuff was invented
independently in America. So Heyerdahl may have been wrong about this.
