In context, it appeared that your
point about myth occurred after exposure to
several posts about the Black Sea...and your post
implied that my posts were a naive' and simplistic throwback to medievel ignorance and superstition which attributed historical significance to imaginary stories.
I've been trying to get the news in that this is probably based on one of humanity's earliest significant true story. Maybe a few folks even had warning about the imminent breakthrough from
the Mediterranean and built boats to move their farm, though I won't swear to it now.
Imagine the grapevine and the poignancy of our own ancestors, possibly, surviving in this region's aftermath! It is the stuff of
a mega-motion picture if only they'd do it as a period piece, minus the religious claptrap.
Sorry if I poured it on too much, but I figured
what I said to you would blow over.
I read about that myth Chtulhuluu (I can't spell it without looking) a couple of times...the most memorable was in The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson, when at first they thought that was what was attacking Earth...a science fiction story.
Correct me if I'm wrong
