It's certainly possible (probably probable) that the Biblical account is based on historical data. I'm not debating that so much as debating against people who say it's historically ACCURATE. I don't think the Bible has no basis in history at all, but I do think the conclusions it draws are quite mythical.

***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***

Never heard of that book, but Cthulhu has been used by many different authors. He was invented by Lovecraft, though.

***Sorry if I poured it on too much, but I figured
what I said to you would blow over.***

Don't worry about it, my pissed-offedness rarely lasts for more than a few posts. :)
