Japanese Scientists Proclaim Giant Squid Created Man, Universe
on 8/1/2006 (3)
(AP) The first ever deep-sea video captured of a free swimming giant squid has led some Japanese academians to proclaim the elusive creature as a sentient divine being who "created Man and the Universe"
|"It moved with scintillating, undulating grace...almost Divine." |
This seemingly fantastic notion has not yet been addressed, let alone accepted, by main-stream theologians, still tussling between the sharply contrasting Hindu belief that the Universe arose from a cosmic egg, that God lived within this cosmic egg, and upon agitating it, the egg was cracked open and creation began, and the African Boshongu belief that in the primordial beginning there was only darkness, water, and the great god Bumba, who in pain from a stomach ache, vomited up the sun and earth.
Other creation myths currently being considered for validity include the Aztec belief that Tezcatlipoca the Jaguar made himself into the sun, but was knocked into the ocean by Quetzalcoatl and the Mongol belief a goldeneye duck plucked mud from the bottom of an ocean covered earth and created inhabitable land.
Professor Yoshiro Yamato of the University of Nagoya scoffed at such absurdly quaint and primitive allegorical creation myths, claiming the divinity of giant squid is far more tangible and concrete, citing, "After all, we do have it on tape and at least you can see it."
