According to Montesinos and other chroniclers, the most unusual event took place in the reign of Titu Yupanqui Pachacuti II, the fifteenth monarch in Ancient Empires times. It was in the third year of his reign, when "good customs were forgotten and people were given to all manner of vice," that "there was no dawn for twenty hours." In other words, the night did not end when it usually does and sunrise was delayed for twenty hours. After a great outcry, confession of sins, sacrifices, and prayers, the sun finally rose.
and accepting that explanation without evidence isnt?
There is more than enough evidence of miracles, and a spiritual, and the power of God through the ages. It abounds. What there is NO EVIDENCE for is that the recorded battle here was not a place that saw a local application of the spiritual!
True, losta, but not much fun. Part of the fun is to see just how far biblical literalists are willing to go to try to make sense of what has very much the look of nonsense.
Watch youtube, "hydroplate theory". THAT is funny! But presented absolutely deadpan serious!
Every culture has their stories of mythical heroes. So why get all solemn and serious about one particular little groups' myths? They are not even your people.
Pliny reported mermaids, and in 586 A.D. there was a widely-reported sighting in the Nile. Christopher Columbus reported seeing three mermaids in the ocean off of Haiti in January of 1493. He reported that they "came quite high out of the water", but were "not as pretty as they are depicted, for somehow in the face they look like men." (Cherry, 1995.)
Speculum Regale (also called the King's Mirror, written in Norway around 1250): "Another prodigy called mermaid has also been seen there. This appears to have the form of a woman from the waist upward, for it has large nipples on its breast like a woman, long hands and heavy hair, and its neck and head are formed in every respect like those of a human being. The monster is said to have large hands and its fingers are not parted but bound together by a web like that which joins the toes of water fowls. Below the waist line it has the shape of a fish with scales and tail and fins. It is said to have this in common with the one mentioned before, that it rarely appears except before violent storms. Its behavior is often somewhat like this: it will plunge into the waves and will always reappear with fish in its hands; if it then turns toward the ship, playing with the fishes or throwing them at the ship, the men have fears that they will suffer great loss of life. The monster is described as having a large and terrifying face, a sloping forehead and wide brows, a large mouth and wrinkled cheeks. But if it eats the fishes or throws them into the sea away from the ship, the crews have good hopes that their lives will be spared, even though they should meet severe storms."
The key seems to be that if the story is Jewish, if comes from the period of x years ending about 2000 years ago, it is true. But only if it was later Authorized, by King James, who was there and saw for himself.
