I had to school d2 on the origin of rice. I think he has learnt his lesson, no need to keep rubbing it in. But I see the slopster still hold on to his erroneous position.
The reality is that people like you are such big frauds you have little option but repeat the same lie over and over and hope it sticks. The rationale for this silly non informative exercise was your insistence cookup cannot be of African creation ( not mistake) because they did not have rice.
I simply reminded you your impoverished education and lack of curiosity left you intellectually stunted. Africans encountered rice and were in active cultivation of the grain for some 3 to 6 thousand years. That is the fact jack.
Rice was ubiquitous to African culture. The gullas will tell you that they were brought as slaves to the Americas because of their skill at planting rice. America did not have Indians to plant rice. The Gullas created a vast agricultural tradition from the Carolinas to Louisiana. Rice had its beginnings everywhere in the west because of the ability to access the knowledge from African peoples.
Delude yourself that you are the greatest if you may. Not my burden. Je m'en fou as the french would say.
