Who really discovered America, Columbus or King Solomon? To hear Robert F. Marx tell it, Columbus may have been beaten to the New World by the sailing ships of Solomon or Alexander the Great or one of a dozen other ancient peoples for whom the same claim is made, ranging from Arabs, Basques and Carthaginians to Russians, Tibetans and Welshmen.

The state of California and the federal government are battling over which entity has jurisdiction over a Spanish galleon that sank just north of San Francisco nearly 400 years ago. Robert Marx, a marine archeologist from Florida, has applied with the State Lands Commission for permission to dig up the treasure-laden ship, now buried under the sands of Drakes Bay, Marin County. The state was to decide after a June 30 public hearing whether to issue Marx a preliminary research permit.

Timothy Ferris teaches at UC Berkeley and has written two best-selling books about science. With his reputation in mind but unfamiliar with his books, I eagerly read "The Mind's Sky: Human Intelligence in a Cosmic Context." I don't know what his fans will think, but I'm disappointed. "The Mind's Sky" is about the nexus of neuroscience and astrophysics and carries a quasi-religious message.
