And yet you say this:
"I know that you [Thanos] think literally because you maintain that the Epic of Gilgamesh is an historical account."
So which is it-do you not really know or are just making shit up?
> The Epic of Gilgamesh is a mystical revelation.
> It is not a "tall tale."
> The setting is imaginary, as are the characters.
> It was written as a means to explain the human
Unfortunately the act of just saying one's beliefs as a statement of fact does not make it so. The Epic of Gilgamesh is universally regarded as a secular narrative and not a religious work, the least of which some kind of "mystical revelation". It is a product of your own imagination and/or some other source you fancy, that has imposed this meaning on it which otherwise it did not have. If you believe this to be true then the onus is on you to provide elucidation which I do not recall you have ever done. But obviously you are convinced of what you believe so like most this is probably not necessary.
