Columbus' Fraud Newly Exposed. The Ship "Santa Maria" Never Sank
New facts show that when Christopher Columbus stated that his captainship Santa Maria sank, Columbus lied.
By: Joseph Conrad Yacht Club
Christopher Columbus left Spain with three ships on the evening of August 3, 1492; the Niña, Pinta and Santa Maria. He returned to Spain on march 15, 1493, with only two of those ships. The discoverer of America claimed that the Santa Maria ran aground on December 24th, 1492, and was lost at sea off the northern coast of Haiti. This way Columbus explained why he was forced to leave 39 of his crew stranded behind at a place he named Natividad: today’s Caracol Beach, Haiti.
Newly uncovered facts show that when Columbus stated in his Ship’s Log that the Santa Maria sank, he was lying to the Spanish crown.
Columbus' seafaring instincts were extraordinary. Columbus relied not only on navigational instruments but also on his extensive sailing experience, intuition, observations, and guesswork to determine his ships' positions and routes. His expert piloting skills helped him survive through several storms and in 1502 Columbus even survived sailing though a hurricane that sank 20 ships around him.
Therefore, the account of the Santa Maria running aground while coasting off the coast of Haiti, in calm waters and little wind, sounded unbelievable. After years of careful investigation, Mr. Rosa has uncovered the proof that was needed to show Coumbus' fraudulent claim. The author, who has been investigating the life of the discoverer for over 21 years, thinks he knows why Columbus did it.
"Christopher Columbus marooned the ship Santa Maria on purpose so that he could get Queen Isabella’s court overseers off his back and to pressure Queen Isabella to send another fleet to the New World upon his return,” claims the top present-day expert on Columbus.
After combing through the facts, Mr. Rosa has succeeded in proving many falsehoods that had been accepted parts of the Columbus narrative. His new Columbus biography is exposing a Christopher Columbus who lived a life of “treachery, treason, murder, lies, intrigue, assassinations, fraud, and deception.”
“Anyone who looks at the location where the Santa Maria supposedly sank and then learns a few more undeniable facts, realizes the fraud,” says Rosa, who has published four foreign language books on Columbus. His latest book, “KOLUMB. Historia Nieznana,” (COLUMBUS. Unknown History) is turning into a bestseller in Poland, where Mr. Rosa claims Columbus’ father had held the throne as King Władysław III Jagiełło.
According to the author, there is proof that King Władysław III escaped death at the Battle of Varna in 1444 and sought refuge in Portugal’s Madeira Island where he was granted vast lands and lived out the rest of his life under the pseudonym of Henrique Alemão: Henry the German.
Columbus was well-aware of his father's secret identity and created his own false identity so that he could protect his father's. By doing so, Columbus created an immense cloud of confusion around his identity that still confuses historians today.
To learn more about Columbus, the Joseph Conrad Yacht Club has invited longtime Columbus historian, Manuel Rosa, to come to Chicago to discuss the findings of his investigation in a lecture titled: "Proof That Columbus's Captainship Santa Maria Never Sank", September 8, 4:00 PM at the Joseph Conrad Yacht Club, 636 S. Des Plaines River Rd, Chicago.
While in Chicago, Mr. Rosa will also present a lecture at the Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture, on Friday September 7, titled: "The Secret Identity of Columbus: Peasant to Viceroy in 33 days." Both are open to the general public.
Mr. Rosa, who is currently working with actor Christopher Siepietowski to turn his book into a movie script, will travel to Chicago accompanied by Mr. Eric Steele, co-author of “The Columbus Mystery Revealed.”
