Another Stereotype of the Month entry:
A survey posted originally at Discovering Archaeology asked:
By what route do you think people first came to the Americas?
For those who might like to address the inaccuracy of this poll, the recipient of the following email is the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of the Scientific American/Discovering Archeology publication, Jeff D. Leach @ firstname.lastname@example.org. I, for one, am sick and tired of one-sided polls and theories being presented by the dominant culture.

Greetings Mr. Leach,
The poll you are now running on your website (By what route do you think people first came to the Americas?) does not list the most important option and the one most archeologists are afraid to consider; that being that Creator placed the Indigenous People of the Americas here on Turtle Island to begin with. If you are going to have a valid poll, it should include ALL options; not just those considered to be the most popular by the dominant culture.
