The name "La Merika" was based around an alleged voyage that Henry Sinclair made from Scotland to present-day America in the early 1400s, almost 100 years before Columbus made his voyage in 1492.
Theorists speculate that Sinclair discovered a royal archive under the temple mount in Jerusalem, stating that Phoenicians from Tyre, voyaged to a western continent following a star called La Merika. La Merika => America.
The Sinclairs were Knights Templars and built the Rosslyn Chapel near Edinburgh, Scotland in 1456. Within the Chapel, there are stone carvings of aloe and corn plants from the New World. The Chapel was built 36 years before Cristopher Columbus "discovered" the West Indies in 1492.
From the author Christopher Knight, he say the Knights Templars were Jews who wanted to reclaim their heritage from under Soloman's Temple in Jerusalem, where the treasures were kept. They must have found them, because they became very powerful ever since. They went "underground" because of the Vatican's jealous persecution. Jacques de Molay, the head of the Knights Templar, was arrested along with 200 men on his birthday, Friday the 13th, in 1307.
There ya' go, a bit of history in a nutshell,
"Stone corn carvings"
