    Human life on this continent--if you're referring to North and South America--is reliably dated back around 17,000 years (Monte Verde, in Chile).

    There is increasing evidence that paleo folks were in South America earlier than that, maybe as far back as 25,000 to 30,000 years. It's still under study and discussion.

    But, sorry to say, not 'hundreds of thousands of years.'

    Kool-Aid, man, Kool-Aid's the stuff to drink ... For fellows whom it hurts to think. (with apologies to AE Housman)
