Now, now August.  You *know* that all carvings, statues, pictures
and legends are in fact true depictions.  It is only the narrow
minds of the professionals that do not recognize this.  We *know*
that blood can fall from the sky, many medieval chronicles testify
to this (though, as Dominic Green would point out, they omitted 
noting the blood type).  We *know* that giants existed.  Statues
of them are fairly wide spread.  And we *know* that one-footed
men existed as well, we have drawings.

How can any person with a rational mind ignore this?

The IAC has carefully surpressed all this knowlege.  And, thanks
to Yuri and his fellow-thinkers, it is all leaking out.
