Everyone was starting to think new routes to Asia for trade. The silk road was long gone and it was dangerous to do. It also took too long and cost too much. Yet, there was a demand for the silks, perfumes, spices, and gunpowder that Asia could provide, so there had to be a better way to get there. …Ships had evolved and navigational tools were also now invented. It was the perfect storm. The need was there, the will to get there, and the means. Spain and other crown heads also liked to spend money and needed more gold, so going to a New World sounded like a grand way to get more. Spend a little to get a lot ( so they thought). Columbus was in the right spot at the right time. It is a fable that he wanted to prove the world wasn't flat. It was all ready known that it wasn't, but he did promise gold on his return. Columbus for his part wanted to be rich and famous. He got neither. ( Full Answer )

Columbus didn't influence the world much in his time. He was considered a failure and died fighting the crown for his share of anything he found. He expected to find a lot of gold to bring back to Spain to off set the cost of his ships and he didn't succeed in his task in any of his 4 voyages. To th…e Native Americans he influenced their life a great deal. He brought STD's, the flu, and other diseases to the New World. He started a flood of other explorers who considered Native Americans good for slavery and not much else. Eventually, they would loose their lands, life styles, and cultures to the flood of Europeans that would invade their lands. Columbus was just the start of all of it. ( Full Answer )

Christopher Columbus, and all explorers of that day, were terrible navigators. To be honest, he didn't have a clue where he was going. He was trying to find a quick route to India. That's why Native Americans, and Native Canadians are called "Indians" - he thought he was in India. So to ask why …did he colonize the new world? The answer is he didn't. He did it by accident. ( Full Answer )
He was in search of the West Indies or a path that lead to the West Indies.
Since he landed in the Bahamas he saw a tropical island with Native Americans living on it. They were rather poor and didn't have the gold he was looking for. They gave him small items they had made and parrots.
The very first one not to pretty after the sailers comfronted Columbus to turn around and go back to Spain because there was no sign of India and there was no more food or water. The next couple of days they found land, an island in the Bahamas wich was named San Salvador wich means " we are safe" (… In Spanish Salvador is a man's name, the word comes from to save, salvage for a ship) they gave that name to the island because it saved them. On the same island the biggest ship, La Santa Maria, run aground because of the shallow waters. They had to come back to Spain with only La Pinta and La NiÃ±a ships. The tribes of the Americas received the name "Indians" because the Spanish thought they had reached India, that's where they were going. Columbus wanted to find a new rout to India because the mediterranean sea in Europe was in the hands of Turks, Arabs and other pirates who attacked all the caravans who tradded with India and all those lands.

Nothing major was proved when Columbus made his voyages. In fact, he never admitted that his initial plan to reach Asia (or the East Indies, as they referred to it at the time), as this Italian explorer had promised the Spanish royals, had failed. The relationship strained as time went on and, even …if he knew that he had hit a big barrier in between, admitting as much would have caused even more problems receiving what he felt he was owed by Spain, for whom he claimed the already populated lands he found. Thus, to his death he insisted that the lands he had come across were in fact a part of Asia, despite mounting evidence to the contrary. It was not the first time Europeans had landed on American shores, but it would be the beginning of the imperialistic colonization that flooded the Americas with European immigrants, supplanting the native populations.
