Islanders-far and wide

What is a human being? What is life? Can science give us reliable answers to such questions? The electricity of life. The meaning of human consciousness. Are we alone? Are the traditional contests between science and religion still relevant? Does the word "spirit" still hold meaning today?

Does anybody on this forum page have a theory or essay or know how the
islanders ended up on a lot of the remote islands. Did they become populated
by the sailors of clipper ships or did get tossed around when mother earth
was cleaning house and moving furniture a few centuries ago.
I don't think that they had floatation devices that could travel those
distances, besides they didn't know of others unless they could see
them off hand.Then there must have been mass confusion when the
land masses started moving around.Riding a land mass,as it is going
full rodeo, in the ocean, must have been something else but pure
terror. And to add to the terror,these people were very superstitious
and they still are to this day. thank you for your replies.

Re: Islanders-far and wide and dogs

All of the islands and detached lands in every sea and ocean. What got me to
ask these weird questions, is I read a small article on the Canary Islands,
when explorers first landed there, they said the island was over run with
wild dogs. Now how did these wild dogs get on those islands. I'am pretty
sure they did't have canoes. Get what I'am trying to ask, is how did they
get on these islands to begin with??? :shock:

Ancient civilizations, the Phoenicians for example, were skilled mariners and were quite capable of reaching the Canary Islands...and far beyond. They also had domesticated animals, including dogs, and no doubt transported them too. So it is certainly possible that humans are responsible for tranplanting the ancestors of those wild dogs.

On a more speculative note; there are numerous that the Canary Islands are all that remains of the islands of the Atlantis civilization. Perhaps that is the origin of the dogs?
That does not discount the possibility that under catastrophic conditions, sea levels could have encroached upon land creating islands, or that islands could have moved do to rapid tectonic events of a sort that we do not observe today.
