I remember reading on here along time ago a story about 2 kings...or a king and someone fighting and leaving a huge scar on the earth or something? the name of the 1 person was long like hammnannalu (not the name, just something long like that) its a really really old myth or story or something.... any ideas what it is? i want to read up on it but i cant figure out the name of it or what happens.

i remember someone posting along time ago saying that it could have been nuclear weapons... i dont know. arggg...

Sounds like Indian myth/legend called Mahabharata Battle?

Were there monkey armies in the story? Was it a landbridge or a "scar"? Could it be Hanuman?

I read the Mahabharata Battle that ravenflt listed. Isnt that amazing that our ancient civilizations were capable of much more than we give them credit for. I really hope that is true and archeologist find some proof of this that would be cool. Maybe they will find them in Iraq since thats old country. I'm overblown by this, that it actually could be true. Then were did all the knowledge go. Why do we lose knowledge inbetween civilizations?

Actually, it's a modern translation misinterpreting the legend.

It would contradict other very cool things they've found out. There's no evidence of any ancient atomic war.


Maybe they will find them in Iraq since thats old country.


There were some wonderful treasures there from the Babylonians and Assyrians and other cultures, but the war has destroyed many of them and looters have sold many of them. Archaeolgists have been frustrated by the "on that's not important" attitude exhibited by everyone.

We don't.

Civilizations exchange ideas, and you can see how technology moves through trade and ideas and words for things. One of the recent news stories posted here showed how European farmers used a trade network that ran several thousand miles to bring them green beads as charms for a good harvest some 9,000 years ago and longer.

The story could be Hanuman... or Monkey in the Chinese novel, "Journey to the West." en.wikipedia.org...

...or it could be something else, but those were the two that came to mind.
