  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

Iv never heard of the Chaosium Call of Cthulhu game. I learn something new everytime I get on here :tu: :tu:
It's a really fun RPG game. It can have a high mortality rate if you're not careful however. :gun:

Always be sure your character does not read or speak arabic, ancient greek or latin, and your chances of staying sane are much higher. And... don't listen to anyone who does read from an old book written in one of those languages. And always remember... you don't have to outrun the monsters, you just have to outrun your fellow characters. :innocent:

Players are so fragile in that game, the best fun is to introduce a bunch of D&D players to it and watch them charge in with guns and die in a few rounds.

I'm not sure a creature large enough to make the bloop could even exist. It would require a MASSIVE amount of food, and there isn't too many giant things to eat far down in the depths. There would also have to be a breeding population, so that means at least 300 or so of these things, all needing a ridiculous amount of food... I just dont't think something that big could support itself. I know there were Megalodons and we have giant squids, but this thing would be may more massive. I remember reading that to make a call that loud, the voice box would need to be the size of a small house. JUST THE VOICE BOX.

Basically the bloop and 'julia' are likely caused by a natural event and aren't vocalizations at all.

Why is it necessary for there to breeding a population? Considering numbers are dwindling for the species we can observe, isn't it possible for "The Bloop", if it were a beast, to be one of the last of its kind? Due in part to humans maybe murdering its primary food source?

A "breeding" population never rules anything out in a world where we can observe animals that lack one. At least, for now.

Sure, Xetan - its possible that if an animal made the bloop noise, that it could be the very last one.  I can get on board with that.  I suppose the crux of the argument is that what we really have here is one single bit of audio (yes there are other large, unidentified bits of audio - but they aren't the same sound signature and so are different bits of evidence), that comes from something that has yet to be determined.  I'm relatively uneducated in the grand scheme of things, and so I won't go too far into speculating about things I have little experience in.  I do know however that the earth itself makes many noises (pops, groans, long rumbles) due to the seismic and tectonic processes that are always happening.

In my mind, it is simply more likely that the bloop would be one of those known processes than it would be to be a gigantic sea creature.  Not impossible - I won't ever say that, because that's stupid and closed minded, at least in my opinion.  I like to think of things in terms of what is more or less likely.  That's where my comfort level is.  I'm open to the possibility that someone could someday connect the bloop by a chain of evidence to a giant unknown sea-beast.  It could sure happen.  For now though, I'll stick with what seems more likely and requires the simplest explanation.

I find it more likely to have been some kind of air pocket being released suddenly, or a temperature disturbance on the ocean floor.

I just don't like people using circumstantial rationales to support either side of a debate, and I try to stomp them out as thoroughly as I can.
