A seven-year-old girl literally felt a legend coming to life as she unearthed a huge sword from the same lake King Arthur’s Excalibur was said to have been thrown. A sceptical father, however, said he does not believe in the sword’s fabled origins. Matilda Jones from Doncaster in the UK found the 4-feet (1.2-meter) sword when she went swimming in Dozmary Pool in Cornwall. Matilda’s father, Paul, had just told her and her sister about the legend of King Arthur as they drove to the lake. The two were paddling in the lake when Matilda is said to have made the discovery. "She was only waist deep when she said she could see a sword,” Paul told the Star. "I told her not to be silly and it was probably a bit of fencing, but when I looked down I realised it was a sword. It was just there lying flat on the bottom of the lake."
Unfortunately I cannot post any further info as I am on my company computer. However, if someone would kindly post the picture that has been placed on Twitter, I would be very grateful .
The sword King Arthur pulled from the stone in legend was likely just that–legendary. This sword, with a story equally as unbelievable, actually exists in Tuscany’s Montesiepi Chapel.
In one vision, Michael told Giudotti to renounce all of his earthly possessions. He responded that this would be as difficult as splitting a stone, and to prove his point, thrust his sword into a rock. To his surprise, the sword went through the impenetrable surface as though it was water. Shortly after, an errant horse led Giudotti to the very hilltop that had appeared in his visions, where he was moved to plant a cross. Not having any wood handy, he plunged his sword into a rock, just as he had in the vision, where it was embedded for all time. One year later Giudotti died, and in 1185 Pope Lucius the 3rd declared him a saint, and the Montesiepi Chapel was built up around it.
A look at the curved, oval, iconic representation of Shiva Lingam placed on a globular base, which is found in the Sanctum Sanctorum (Garbhagraha) of all Shiva temples, has given rise to diverse explanations, without comprehending the scientific truths revealed by the ancient Hindu sages. The practice of worshipping Shiva Lingam as the holy symbol of Lord Shiva exists since time immemorial and crosses all boundaries. Read on to know some mind-blowing theories…
