Theory number 1

There are certain similarities between the Indus script and the Rongorongo script from Easter Island. Look into this…

It is clear that many of the characters in these two scripts are similar. However, Indus script was developed in the Indus Valley around 2600 B.C. and the Rongorongo script was used on Easter Island from around A.D. 1700. How can this be?

UNRELATED! It seems to be just a remarkable coincidence - but how fascinating… It appears that many early scripts have signs that look similar. This is because people develop writing for recording common things like jars, animals and grain.
