How would western civilization be different if Christopher Columbushad not discovered AmericaMany circumstances led to Christopher Columbus discovery of America in 1492 He was born in the port city of Genoa Italy He learned the skills of seamanship from working on the sardine fishing fleets It is also probablethat his father owned his own coastal schooner used for trading wool Hehad no formal education which forced him to work in the field of sea navigation In 1476 Columbus became a chart maker in Lisbon Any othercareer he may have chosen could have prevented him from attempting to finda western sea route from Europe to AsiaAmerica would be very different today if not discovered by Christopher Columbus I believe someone would have eventually discovered the new land but much later Western civilization would be less advanced today if it had not been founded so long ago Settlers would not have had as long to develop colonies and establish trade with other countries They would not have had as long to learn the skills of farming a new land Civilization might be more primitive right now if it had not been discovered until a later timeIf America had not been developed by settlers from other countries theAmerican Indians may have populated the land over time They might have been the majority in America today They may have remained land owners and settled in colonies of their own They may have rejected or fought off visitors from Europe if they would have had more time to develop thewestern worldThere is no way to know what western civilization would be now withoutthe discovery by Christopher Columbus But it surely would not be what it istoday
