What a great Thread, ATS is redeemed by such. I have been pulling back into my shell because of the sad state of affairs of many threads lately, and
was so happy to find Slayer newest today when I got home from work. I have been reading the posts and absorbing it all in delight!! Thanks Slayer
for this type Thread is why I became a Member of ATS.
One thought,,, and excuse me if it has already been touched on, is the whole concept of Amphibious to begin with, meaning as a creature, to me (being
Shamanic oriented) amphibians are very much the Shamans of the Natural world. Not Fully land, Not fully Water, much as a shaman is 'between worlds'
connecting spirit and mankind.
One of my personal favorite examples of this is the First Avatar of VIshnu ,,, as a 'Fish',, named Matsya.
It is also one of my favorite Flood 'myths', telling how Satyavrata found a small green fish, cupped him in his hands and carried him home and put
in a cup, Matsya, the fish outgrew the cup, then a bowl, then a pond, river and so on until Satyavrata and his wife had to carry Matsya to the Ocean,
where it was revealed Matsya was Vishnu, whom Satyavrata was a devotee with his wife. Vishnu gives them a boat to survive the Worldwide Flood that
I find it interesting first that this is a definite 'pre-flood' example of a water being helping a human.
There is so much to this line of thought, I am glad someone of knowledge brought out the best examples to show others an alternate line of thought.
One post by belittled this thread due to great distance between the stars line of thinking, which is not the only way these 'creatures' could have
arrived on Earth. They, as others have suggested could be part of Earths History itself,,, just different Epoch and Extinction avoidance by
Intelligence of Life,, just fishy or amphibious instead of Mammal Human. Open up your minds people,,, there are other options for 'where' these
beings are coming from, such as Other Dimensions as mentioned above, or part of our Earths Grand Evolutionary journey via different species that
develop intelligence and possibly technology.
Great Thread. I am now going back to pick up where I left off and start reading more ,,,, good read. Enjoying very much and will respond to this
