Thank you for the corrections. My apology it (names identities) might as well be "all Dutch" to me!
I accept, that you feel, the Spanish were the more correct about ancient Inca ! We will agree to disagree?
(The Nazi's correctly stated along the lines of "the victors gain the right to dictate history".
de León had no way of even contemplating geopolymers! let alone writing about them, nor did the descendants of the Inca at that time know about such either. That science has developed in very recent decades.
Love to you, wishing you a happy prosperous new year!
