cute. Alright. So, delving into the history of Nessie, we quickly learned that the first supposed sightings date as far back as the sixth century a d in the writings of the Life of Saint Columba by a Dom Adana. Adana! God! Oh, my God! That is not a normal name. A dominant. It's not even complicated. Okay, say it. A dominant good job. A dominant. So in the writings of the life of Saint Columba. Columba, by God, please just read. Could you just read? Reading is fundamental. Did you know it was an abbot of Iona, happy and cousin of Saint Columba, who is also an abbot? According to the written accounts, the likely first sightings of Nessie occurred at some point in the late sixth century when Columbus ST Columba came across the aftermath of a supposed monster attack. Hm. Columba and his men came across the burial of a man who was attacked and mauled to death beneath the waters of the river ness, which connects to Loch Ness. How about that? Is that your babushka? How about that? Be happy. You can't see what's going on right now. I can only imagine being the brave monk that he was sent out one of his followers to swim across the river rather than swim himself. Poor swimmer When his man swam across the stretch of water and underwater beasts surged forth, ready to visit a gruesome death upon Columbus man. However, Columba made the sign of the cross and commanded the beast to leave his man be. The creature halted as if it were being pulled back and then fled the area, leaving Columbus Man completely unscathed. The power of Christ compels you. Sure Nessie is compelled by Jesus. See that she must be of the devil. Then you never know. Are you saying Ness is a demon conjured up? She's leviathan. Yeah. I mean, you don't know what's lurking around in that water. Like I said, Anything bigger than like a tropical fish. I'm not digging on sea creatures, Okay? They're all evil. To me. It's just carp. Carp, I would say it's probably more of a gar. Yeah, there's some gar in the It's pretty much in sturgeon long nose fish. Delicious. So now the discerning listener is probably already picked up the and the fact that the said legend mentions the river nous rather than Loch Ness. However, among the believers, generally generally accepted that it would have been feasible for Nessie to have traveled between the river and lock alike. Yet skeptics, both from a mythological standpoint and a logical standpoint, still raised their suspicions of this story as being the first related to Nessie herself. Instead, many argue that the prevalence of water beasts, legends throughout the region was so widespread and common that drawing a connection between the two would be wrong. Others observed that ST Columbus story may have also been inspired by the old Irish legends of all sweet Jesus Carol Roanoke. Okay, so we have a friend. Her name is Kayla. Do you know Kayla? You know you know her. Write her. How do you think her name is spelled? What's your last name? No, her first name. How do you think her first name is? Spelled Cayla. K A L E i G h. No, it's C a O L a. So understanding that that equates to Kayla. You've got Cara, Doc. All right. Okay, Cara, knock the whole of iced. Or is that Did I say that? Wrong to know. Let's let's let's roll with what you got, Karen are the only face. An ancient, demonic sea serpent. It was also carry not which was supposedly driven out and banished by Saint Patrick of Ireland to luck. Oh, my dear GTA. Derek. I'm not good with Scottish names. And so locked Derek is connected to Loch Ness. Why wouldn't they just make one big luck? Well, because it's like river lock. Lock River. See, I guess you could say that they're interlocking. Oh, Uh huh. Wow. Fuck you all. Jeff, can you put crickets in for her? Oh, he's going to. He's going to man. So it was. The creature was driven out and banished by Saint Patrick of Ireland to lock dirt bag in Donegal Oldster. So, I mean, as a snake snake. Okay, well, so looking at this Saint Columba, um, he was originally from Ireland and came to Scotland and was doing a lot of conversion, so we talked about the Catholic Church coming into different areas. Why? Did try, But I just I just exaggerated. Yeah, I'm just exasperated by it, but actually, I'm looking at this, and it's saying that he Saint Columba So we know just from what we've talked about that In order to become a saint, there has to be some sort of documentation of the miracle performed by the person to be recognized by the church. So this incident with the Loch Ness monster in 565 um, was actually considered to be one of his most famous miracle? Oh, my God. Oh, that's amazing. Sainthood because he prevented his man from dying from it is said that he banished a ferocious water beast to the depths of the river nest after it had killed a picked and then tried to attack Columbus Disciple named, uh L U G any loon? Blue? Yeah. Blue, Which is mad? Sweeney's other identity. Interesting. You are Matt Sweeney. No, it's just mad Sweeney. He's just He's the ultimate. I thought it was. I thought his other name is Lughnasa. It's all It's all the same. Yeah. Yeah, I was gonna say, because that that seems to be is a god and one or two a day to nine. The Lughnasa is it just means long arm. Mm. So and after this incident, he apparently visited the Pagan King. Uh, Bridey, probably Bridey, um, at his base And while he won that kings respect. He did not win his conversion, so but he was the saint. Columba was actually very prominent in politics in the country. So just interesting that this was considered one of his most famous miracles being in this encounter with this unidentified animal that people have equated to be the Loch Ness monster. So I wonder if Colombo was based on called Saint Columba Colombo? I don't think so. Confirm confirmed. Oh my God. So well. Whether the Legends of ST Colombo as the first stories of the Loch Ness monster or not, though, remains a matter of debate. Nevertheless, it has retained such significance for the Loch Ness myth that even the likes of Ronald Bins, a longtime skeptic and author who investigated nearly every claim and stories, concluded that quote. This is the most serious of various alleged early sightings of the monster. But all other claimed sightings before 1933 are dubious and do not prove a monster tradition before that date, unquote. All right, Mr
