I wonder what wonderful stories would be told if Volcanologists in their heat resistant suits were seen taking lava samples. I mean the wise old elders would have to explain them to the younger generation. Thats their job.

Nobody has ever seen him and lived[/quote people just looove making up stories don't they?! but we can never shun what we cannot truly explain either. all we can do is politely respect what the elders have to say about "legends"...because obviously they've seen many more moons than us.

If no one has ever seen him and lived then where do the stories come from?
