Christopher Columbus (c. 1451 to May 20, 1506) was an Italian explorer and navigator. In 1492, he sailed across the Atlantic from Spain in the Santa Maria, with the Pinta and the Niña ships alongside, hoping to find a new route to India. Between 1492 and 1504, he made a total of four voyages to the Caribbean and South America and has been credited for opening up the Americas to European colonization.

Bibliography at bottom of description AUTHOR'S NOTE: This video is meant to give a non-bias account of the events which unfolded when Columbus and his crew made contact with the people of the Caribbean. Of course, I was not able to fit everything into the video; I had to omit details, such as the fact that the Taino were not the only people that Columbus encountered (there were also the Ciguayo tribe and Carib cannibals). A second particular is that not all fault should lie directly on Columbus' shoulders. His crew of 1,200 for the second journey consisted partly of convicts and landless nobles, the worst type of people with which to build a settlement. Another fact is that Columbus grew up in societies (Genoa, then Portugal) that kept domestic slaves. I have no political agenda for making this video. I am a student of history and I have tried to give an account of Columbus' journeys that is as close as we can possibly get to the truth. I will I admit that I am not a fan of Columbus. I think he was cruel, even for his time. We cannot judge a 15th-century human from a 21st-century perspective; but even for the 15th century, he was an awful arbiter. Sources: Bergreen, Laurence.

In which John Green teaches you about the beginning of the so-called Age of Discovery. You've probably heard of Christopher Columbus, who "discovered" America in 1492, but what about Vasco da Gama? How about Zheng He? Columbus gets a bad rap from many modern historians, but it turns out he was pretty important as far as the history of the world goes. That said, he wasn't the only pioneer plying the seas in the 1400s. In Portugal, Vasco da Gama was busy integrating Europe into the Indian Ocean Trade by sailing around Africa. Chinese admiral Zheng He was also traveling far and wide in the largest wooden ships ever built. Columbus, whether portrayed as hero or villain, is usually credited as the great sailor of the 15th century, but he definitely wasn't the only contender. What better way to settle this question than with a knock-down, drag-out, no holds barred, old-fashioned battle royal? We were going to make it a cage match, but welding is EXPENSIVE.

History books traditionally depict the pre-Columbus Americas as a pristine wilderness where small native villages lived in harmony with nature. But scientific evidence tells a very different story: When Columbus stepped ashore in 1492, millions of people were already living there. America wasn't exactly a New World, but a very old one whose inhabitants had built a vast infrastructure of cities, orchards, canals and causeways. The English brought honeybees to the Americas for honey, but the bees pollinated orchards along the East Coast. Thanks to the feral honeybees, many of the plants the Europeans brought, like apples and peaches, proliferated. Some 12,000 years ago, North American mammoths, ancient horses, and other large mammals vanished. The first horses in America since the Pleistocene era arrived with Columbus in 1493. Settlers in the Americas told of rivers that had more fish than water. The South American potato helped spark a population explosion in Europe. In 1491, the Americas had few domesticated animals, and used the llama as their beast of burden. In 1491, more people lived in the Americas than in Europe. The first conquistadors were sailors and adventurers. In 1492, the Americas were not a pristine wilderness but a crowded and managed landscape. The now barren Chaco Canyon was once covered with vegetation. Along with crops like wheat, weeds like dandelion were brought to America by Europeans. It’s believed that the domestication of the turkey began in pre-Columbian Mexico, and did not exist in Europe in 1491. By 1500, European settlers and their plants and animals had altered much of the Americas’ landscape. While beans, potatoes, and maize from the Americas became major crops in continental Europe.

Most are taught in school that Christopher Columbus discovered America... But did he really discover it? Was he the first European in the Americas? The answer to both those questions is "no." So what was going on in Americas before 1492? Who really discovered America? Well, many people before him. Western Europeans simply hadn’t heard from the rest of the world yet, or just believed what they wanted to believe...

Monday, October 12th is Columbus Day, which we have celebrated in this country since the eighteenth century… and that’s probably long enough. When you find out the actual facts of what Columbus did when he got to America, you’ll find one of the darkest chapters in American history. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola (Think Tank), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. "Second, Columbus wasn't a hero. When he set foot on that sandy beach in the Bahamas on October 12, 1492, Columbus discovered that the islands were inhabited by friendly, peaceful people called the Lucayans, Taínos and Arawaks. Writing in his diary, Columbus said they were a handsome, smart and kind people. He noted that the gentle Arawaks were remarkable for their hospitality. "They offered to share with anyone and when you ask for something, they never say no," he said. The Arawaks had no weapons; their society had neither criminals, prisons nor prisoners. They were so kind-hearted that Columbus noted in his diary that on the day the Santa Maria was shipwrecked, the Arawaks labored for hours to save his crew and cargo. The native people were so honest that not one thing was missing. Columbus was so impressed with the hard work of these gentle islanders, that he immediately seized their land for Spain and enslaved them to work in his brutal gold mines. Within only two years, 125,000 (half of the population) of the original natives on the island were dead.”* Read more here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eric-kasum/columbus-day-a-bad-idea_b_742708.html ********** The Young Turks October 6, 2015 Hour 1 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 The REAL History Of Christopher Columbus https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FBUEfdPDOQ&index=1&list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 Eric Bolling Against Gun Background Checks Because Poor Can't Afford Them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4PBw5nMjsI&index=2&list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 Media Fails To Point Out Benghazi Smear Campaign Because Neutrality https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AO_dUDDRZsw&index=3&list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 Dr. Ben Carson Preaching On Guns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEV2EBpjHnA&index=4&list=PLTpcK80irdQg44dQUiJtAzLsSgLCKyU84 ********** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Is the map 'Columbus' used actually from the earlier voyage?! Biggest expose yet! The Columbus story is full of holes! History is so so so so so wrong about Columbus that It's hard to even see where to begin! * Columbus' signature looks RomanoGreek * Admiral Piri Remis' Columbus' map is of Brazil. Columbus did not chart its coast! Only briefly! * Roman galley in Brazil * Tiwanaku built (i think rebuilt) in Roman times, Kalasassasya temple looks like Temple Church in London, which must have been a Roman building! * Christobal Colon was possibly a different man who ALSO found America using Christohper's earlier maps!? * ST CHRISTOPHER is the real Christopher Columbus?! Columbus actually just means dove. It means HOLY SPIRIT CARRIER OF JESUS. * Why does Columbus have Templar Sails? St Brendon had the same sails and went to America with Romamo-Irish Sails.

Monday is Columbus Day, a federal holiday celebrating Christopher Columbus' discovery of the Americas in 1492. On top of discovering a new land, Columbus and his crew brought along centuries of death, disease and oppression to the indigenous populations of the New World.

Columbus was looking for a fast route to India and China. He in fact believed that Asia would be located about 3,700km (2,300miles) from the Canary Islands, Spain’s farthest outpost in the Atlantic. Driven by the thirst of gold and power, he set sail and embarked on what would become the ultimate voyage of discovery. Although Columbus never knew that he had discovered a new continent, his legacy is omnipresent in most Central and South American countries. ************ Thanks for watching and subscribing!

Hello friends, I´m Cristobal Colon, the world famous sailor and adventurer. I am so famous because I discovered America, but the truth is, it was all possible thanks to Isabel and Fernando, the Spanish Catholic Kings, who invested money enabling me to carry out the trip. I, as well as all the other brave crew members who accompanied me, set sail in three different ships named; La Niña, La Pinta and Santa Maria, from the Port, Puerto de Palos, in Huelva, Spain. After 72 days of sailing, on the 12th of October 1492, a sailor named Rodrigo de Triana, yelled: Land Ahoy! And we disembarked and set foot on American soil, as quickly as we could... But I must confess something to you, in truth I believed that we had reached India, which was where we were heading to, it was complete accident that we arrived at this new continent…but hard work and sacrifice always gives you rewards. After the first trip, I returned to America another three times and I bought back to Spain unknown products in Europe such as tomatoes, corn, potatoes, and cacao. Mmm, yummy! I also bought from Spain to America food and animals which they hadn't even heard of such as horses, sheep, pigs, onions and wheat. Well this is my story friends, now you know why I, Admiral Cristobal Colon am so famous. But before I go I would like to give you some advise, if you want to be happy, work and study hard, with effort and determination one can accomplish many things…goodbye friends, Adios.

▶ Check out my gear on Kit: https://kit.com/kjvids Meet Zheng He - The Greatest Chinese Muslim Explorer When people think of great explorers, they think of the usual names: Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta, Evliya Çelebi, Christopher Columbus, etc. But not many know of Zheng He. The Muslim who became China’s greatest admiral, explorer, and diplomat. In China, he is well known, although not always recognized or glorified. Zheng was born in 1371 in the southern China region of Yunnan to a Muslim Chinese ethnic family and named Ma He. In China, the family name is said first, followed by the given name. “Ma” is known in China as short for “Muhammad”, indicating Zheng Muslim heritage. At a young age, his town was raided by the Ming Dynasty’s army. He was captured and transported to the capital, Nanjing, where he served in the imperial household. Despite the oppressive and difficult circumstances he was in, Zheng actually befriended one of the princes, Zhu Di, and rose to the highest positions in government. He was given the honorific title “Zheng” and was known as Zheng He. In 1405, when emperor Zhu Di decided to send out a giant fleet of ships to explore and trade with the rest of the world, he chose Zheng to lead the expedition. This expedition was massive. In all, almost 30,000 sailors were in each voyage, with Zheng He commanding all of them. Between 1405 and 1433, Zheng He led 7 expeditions that sailed to present day Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, Iran, Oman, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Kenya, and many other countries. It is probable that during one of his journeys, Zheng He was even able to go to Makkah to complete the Hajj. Zheng was not the only Muslim on these expeditions. Many of his advisors and were also Chinese Muslims, such as Ma Huan, a translator who spoke Arabic and was able to converse with the Muslim peoples they encountered on their journeys. He wrote an account of his journeys, titled the , which is an important source today for understanding 15th century societies around the Indian Ocean. The ships Zheng commanded were up to 400 feet long, many times the size of Columbus’s ships that sailed across the Atlantic. Zheng would sail back to China with exotic goods such as ivory, camels, gold, and even a giraffe from Africa. The expeditions sent one message to the world: China is an economic and political superpower. Economics and politics were not the only effects of this great fleet that was commanded by Zheng. He and his Muslim advisors regularly promoted Islam wherever they travelled. In the Indonesian islands of Java, Sumatra, Borneo and others, Zheng found small communities of Muslims already there. Islam had started to spread in Southeast Asia a few hundred years before through trade from Arabia and India. Zheng actively supported the continued growth of Islam in these areas. Zheng established Chinese Muslim communities in Palembang, and along Java, the Malay Peninsula, and the Philippines. These communities preached Islam to the local people and were very important to the spread of Islam in the area. The fleet built masjids and provided other social services the local Muslim community would need. Even after the death of Zheng in 1433, other Chinese Muslims continued his work in Southeast Asia, spreading Islam. Chinese Muslim traders in Southeast Asia were encouraged to intermarry and assimilate with the local people on the islands and Malay Peninsula. This brought more people to Islam in Southeast Asia, as well as strengthened and diversified the growing Muslim community. As an admiral, diplomat, soldier, and trader, Zheng He is a giant of Chinese and Muslim history. He is seen as one of the greatest figured in the spread of Islam in Southeast Asia. Unfortunately, after his death, the Chinese government changed its philosophy to a more Confucian one which did not support such expeditions like Zheng He’s. As a result, his accomplishments and contributions were mostly forgotten or overlooked for hundreds of years in China. His legacy in Southeast Asia, however is quite different. Numerous Mosques in the region are named after him to commemorate his contributions. Islam spread in Southeast Asia through many forms, including trade, travelling preachers, and immigration. Admiral Zheng He was also a major part of its spread in that region. Today, Indonesia has the largest Muslim population of any nation in the world, and much of that could be attributed to the activities of Zheng He in the region.

This video's purpose is to stress to Africans in America and the world that our history did not start with slavery in the New World. The Ancient Ancestors of Egypt and West Africa traveled to the New World, traded and exchanged cultural ideas with the inhabitants. This irrefutable and historical fact is very important to the African psyche here in America. We have to put down this propaganda that has branded us as "inferior" in all important areas of life and defend and challenge it with undeniable truth. Please read Ivan Sertima's book "They Came before Columbus" as a starting point on this untold story. WEB Dubois quote "In propaganda against the Negro since emancipation in this land," Du Bois lamented, "we face one of the most stupendous efforts the world ever saw to discredit human beings, an effort involving universities, history, science, social life and religion.

Christopher Columbus (Italian: Cristoforo Colombo; Spanish: Cristóbal Colón; Portuguese: Cristóvão Colombo; born between 31 October 1450 and 30 October 1451, died 20 May 1506) was a Genoese explorer, navigator, and colonizer, born in the Republic of Genoa (today part of Italy). Under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean. Those voyages, and his efforts to establish permanent settlements on the island of Hispaniola, initiated the Spanish colonization of the New World.In the context of emerging western imperialism and economic competition between European kingdoms through the establishment of trade routes and colonies, Columbus' proposal to reach the East Indies by sailing westward, eventually received the support of the Spanish Crown, which saw in it a chance to enter the spice trade with Asia through a new westward route. During his first voyage in 1492, instead of reaching Japan as he had intended, Columbus landed in a New World, landing in the Bahamas archipelago, on an island he named San Salvador. Over the course of three more voyages, Columbus visited the Greater and Lesser Antilles, as well as the Caribbean coast of Venezuela and Central America, claiming them for the Spanish Empire.Though Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas (having been preceded by the Norse expedition led by Leif Ericson in the 11th century), his voyages led to the first lasting European contact with the Americas, inaugurating a period of European exploration, conquest, and colonization that lasted for several centuries. They had, therefore, an enormous impact in the historical development of the modern Western world. Columbus himself saw his accomplishments primarily in the light of spreading the Christian religion.Never admitting that he had reached a continent previously unknown to Europeans, rather than the East Indies he had set out for, Columbus called the inhabitants of the lands he visited indios (Spanish for "Indians"). Columbus' strained relationship with the Spanish crown and its appointed colonial administrators in America led to his arrest and dismissal as governor of the settlements on the island of Hispaniola in 1500, and later to protracted litigation over the benefits which Columbus and his heirs claimed were owed to them by the crown ------- ALF Kids Station is designed to engage children through a series of upbeat nursery rhymes and educational songs with colorful animations.

Laughing Historically is a fun educational web show that’s teacher/classroom friendly and great for kids of all ages! --- TERMS: Christopher Columbus - 1451-1506 was an Italian explorer, navigator, and colonizer. Under the patronage of Spain, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean. He is usually credited with starting the European period of exploration and conquest of the Americas. The New World - is an historic reference to the American continents. Native Americans - Indigenous people of the North and south american continents comprised of numerous distinct tribes and ethnic groups. Commonly known as Indians or American Indians. --- TRANSCRIPT: Christopher Columbus, first man to discover the New World, except for this guy and maybe this guy and all of these people, so lets move on. What happened when Columbus finally arrived in the New World? He saw a land rife for plundering (especially for the burgeoning slave trade) and convinced his funders Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of Spain to allow him to return four more times to tap into this new market. On his fourth voyage, Columbus hits a huge problem, he gets worms. Well, his wooden ships do and they start to fill with holes. So the captain decides to land his ships in St. Anne’s Bay, Jamaica to repair them. Due to the difficulty of the repairs and being in Jamaica, which is highly relaxing, it takes Columbus and his crew several months. As they begin to run out of supplies, the crew decides to borrow food, supplies and shelter from the indigenous people - without saying “please.” No surprise, the local people grow very angry with Columbus and his crew for overstaying their welcome and the two groups verge on outright war. So, Columbus calls a meeting to try and settle the matter. He has an idea. When the leaders of the indigenous people arrive, Columbus makes an announcement: “The Almighty is unhappy. He doesn’t like the way you natives are treating Columbus and his sailors. The Almighty will show his disapproval by removing the Moon from the sky!” The natives scoff at Columbus, knowing that no one could know the will of the gods and return to preparing for battle. However, that night, darkness falls over Jamaica as the moon darkens and then disappears! The wizard had done it! The natives are terrified and run back to Columbus, pleading him to return the moon. They promise food and anything else he and his men want. After a few minutes, Columbus tells the people that the gods will forgive them and return the moon, if they promise to help him as much as possible. They agree and the moon returns shortly. After, he and his crew have no problems from the native people and take whatever he wants: food, gold, supplies, and even slaves. So how did Columbus do it? Did he have a massive moon-blocking machine created from coconuts? Did he make a deal with the dark lord himself? Was it aliens????? No, like any sailor, Christopher Columbus carried a sky almanac with him and knew that night, a lunar Eclipse, when the Earth blocks the light of the sun on the moon, would occur. Christopher Columbus, con-artist, liar, and genuinely awful person. If you ask us, the real heroes of this story were the Worms. Fun fact! Columbus didn’t discover the Earth was round. The ancient Greeks had figured that out back in 600 BC and by 1492, it was common knowledge.

Created by Matt Rubel twitter: @m_a_rubel; youtube.com/mattrubel; vimeo.com/mattrubel For more information on this subject, please consult: A People's History of the United States, by Howard Zinn In 1492, Columbus sailed the Ocean blue. And what he did next was more than a little shocking. Sure, we all know by now that he didn't really discover the Americas. The Chinese had likely already landed there, the Vikings definitely had, and obviously, there were already people who had been living there for a very long time. We also know that Columbus' discovery was actually a failure to circumnavigate the world in order to find an alternative trade route to Asia, for Spain to exploit at the peril of, well, mostly Italian city-states like his native Genoa. But, that's besides the point. Columbus' voyages unified the old world with the new in a lasting way. And that legacy is pretty difficult to fully fathom. Aside from the negative consequences like the transatlantic slave trade, the global expansion of colonialism, and the ensuing destruction of Incan, Aztec and Mayan cultures—just to name a few—Europe's late medieval discovery of the America's eventually lead to the global export of American crops like corn, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes; the spread of western ideas about religion, philosophy, science, and mathematics; and the founding of dozens of immigrant-rich, multicultural countries, including the United State, the land of the free sample, and home of the Atlanta Braves. So-- Isn't that enough? When Columbus and his men landed on the shores of the Bahama islands, the Arawak men and women who ran out to greet them brought food water and other gifts. Columbus was amazed by their hospitality and belief in sharing. His immediate response was, according to his own journals, to take several of the natives by force in order to interrogate them for information about where the gold they wore as jewelry came from. He had persuaded the Spanish king and queen to finance his expedition and they were expecting a large return of gold and spices. They had promised Columbus in exchange 10 percent of the profits, governorship over any new found land and a new title: Admiral of the Ocean Sea. The Arawaks imprisoned on Columbus' ship lead him to Hispaniola, the Island now shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic. From there, he returned to Madrid to tell the monarchs a series of lies. He told them he had reached Asia, and promised that in exchange for a little help from his Majesties, he would be able to send them as much gold and slaves as they needed on his next voyage. He also brought them several dozen enslaved Arawaks, thus beginning the trans-Atlantic slave trade. For his next voyage, because of his extravagant promises, he was given 17 ships and more than 1200 men. Despite the man power, he couldn't find any gold. So, he had 1600 Arawaks rounded up in a single slave raid. He had 500 of them chained and sent to Spain. 200 of those died en route. And that was too many deaths for Columbus, because it made the venture unprofitable. So, Columbus turned his focus back to gold. He relocated to an area he believed rich in gold and demanded that each native over 14 years of age pay him a tribute of a particular amount of gold every 3 months. Those who failed to round up the specified amount had their hands chopped off and bled to death. In reality, the natives had been given an impossible task. The only gold around were modest dust fleck deposits in the rivers. So, they fled, were hunted down by dogs, and killed. Arawaks who tried to put up a resistance were easy killed by the superior weapons of the Spaniards. When Columbus took captives, he hanged them or burned them to death. He and his men also, of course, raped the local women en mass. The Arawaks began to suicide and kill babies to save them from the Spaniards. In two years, half of the original inhabitants were dead. The population continued to decline rapidly for decades, until there was not a single Arawak left. According to the first-hand accounts of Bartolome de las Casas, over three million people died from Columbus' reign of terror. Columbus is without any exaggeration, a treasonous, lying, genocidal, rapist slave-trader. And yet, we celebrate him. Millions of Americans will be observing Columbus day on Monday, as we in the North celebrate our Thanksgiving...

In which John Green teaches you about the changes wrought by contact between the Old World and the New. John does this by exploring the totally awesome history book "The Columbian Exchange" by Alfred Cosby, Jr. After Columbus "discovered" the Americas, European conquerors, traders, and settlers brought all manner of changes to the formerly isolated continents. Disease and invasive plant and animal species remade the New World, usually in negative ways. While native people, plants, and animals were being displaced in the Americas, the rest of the world was benefitting from American imports, especially foods like maize, tomatoes, potatoes, pineapple, blueberries, sweet potatoes, and manioc. Was the Columbian Exchange a net positive? It's debatable. So debate.

When the fleet returned home in October 1423, the emperor had fallen, leaving China in political and economic chaos. The great ships were left to rot at their moorings and the records of their journeys were destroyed. Lost in the long, self-imposed isolation that followed was the knowledge that Chinese ships had reached America seventy years before Columbus and had circumnavigated the globe a century before Magellan. And they colonised America before the Europeans, transplanting the principal economic crops that have since fed and clothed the world.

Commonly known as Christopher Columbus, the explorer never used the name Columbus during his lifetime, but Colón: Cristóbal Colón. The Italian Christopher Columbus is the wrong person, a peasant wool-weaver while Colón was a Portuguese nobleman. http://www.dziennik.com/wideo/artykul/manuel-rosa-kolumb-nie-byl-wlochem

The people who changed the world,Movie Stars , Characters,Artists,Musician Christopher Columbus (Italian: Cristoforo Colombo; Spanish: Cristóbal Colón; Portuguese: Cristóvão Colombo; born between 31 October 1450 and 30 October 1451, died 20 May 1506) was an Italian explorer, navigator, and colonizer, citizen of the Republic of Genoa. Under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, he completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean. Those voyages, and his efforts to establish permanent settlements on the island of Hispaniola, initiated the Spanish colonization of the New World. In the context of emerging western imperialism and economic competition between European kingdoms through the establishment of trade routes and colonies, Columbus' proposal to reach the East Indies by sailing westward, eventually received the support of the Spanish Crown, which saw in it a chance to enter the spice trade with Asia through a new westward route. During his first voyage in 1492, instead of reaching Japan as he had intended, Columbus landed in a New World, landing in the Bahamas archipelago, on an island he named San Salvador. Over the course of three more voyages, Columbus visited the Greater and Lesser Antilles, as well as the Caribbean coast of Venezuela and Central America, claiming them for the Spanish Empire. Though Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas (having been preceded by the Norse expedition led by Leif Ericson in the 11th century), his voyages led to the first lasting European contact with the Americas, inaugurating a period of European exploration, conquest, and colonization that lasted for several centuries. They had, therefore, an enormous impact in the historical development of the modern Western world. Columbus himself saw his accomplishments primarily in the light of spreading the Christian religion. Never admitting that he had reached a continent previously unknown to Europeans, rather than the East Indies he had set out for, Columbus called the inhabitants of the lands he visited indios (Spanish for "Indians"). Columbus' strained relationship with the Spanish crown and its appointed colonial administrators in America led to his arrest and dismissal as governor of the settlements on the island of Hispaniola in 1500, and later to protracted litigation over the benefits which Columbus and his heirs claimed were owed to them by the crown.

Yes. Christopher Columbus was jewish. One of the biggest secrets of modern history.Due to the Spanish Inquisition, it was very dangerous in the 15th century to be openly jewish. If you were an ambitious businessman, there was no way to get a royal charter unless you convinced the king you were a Christian.
