Unfortunately this is all but a tale. The story of John Robertson was covered in a number of reputable sources (and the Daily Mail)

I don't know, that seemed like more of a jab at the Daily Fail.

My understanding is that there was some wackadoodle POW/MIA type who has a crusade over there looking for bodies and survivors, then some filmmaker heard about the crazy and thought he could make it into a compelling documentary. So the filmmaker follows the crazy around and the crazy hears this story about the supposed "missing vet" and that became the subject of this documentary.

Beyond that, I believe the rest was just a combination of lazy journalism, marketing for the movie, and the internet making John Rambo jokes.

Behemoth, as described in the Old Testament is most likely 1) a hippopotamus or a 2) crocodile.  Another possibility is the water buffalo, since the word Behemoth may derive from the Egyptian word for this animal.

Leviathan is a water-dwelling animal such as a crocodile, whale, shark, large fish. It is drawn out of the waters with hooks (like the P-Vs used by loggers on the river log drives), Egyptian-style.

The Egyptians left behind paintings of hippopotamus hunts. These are very large, dangerous animals. They were hunted by kings and princes with their companions to display their strength, courage, and other kingly and military qualities.

Behold now the behemoth that I have made with you; he eats grass like cattle.
Behold now his strength is in his loins and his power is in the navel of his belly.
His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are knit together.
His limbs are as strong as copper, his bones as a load of iron.
His is the first of God's ways; only his Maker can draw His sword.
For the mountains bear food for him, and all the beasts of the field play there.
Does he lie under the shadows, in the cover of the reeds and the swamp?
Do the shadows cover him as his shadow? Do the willows of the brook surround him?
Behold, he plunders the river, and does not harden; he trusts that he will draw the Jordan into his mouth.
With His eyes He will take him; with snares He will puncture his nostrils.


Behemoth is a plant-eater (hippo, rhino, elephant, water buffalo).
Behemoth is a river animal (hippo, crocodile, elephant, water buffalo).
Behemoth has a big mouth into which he draws water (hippo, elephant, crocodile).
Behemoth lives on mountains as well as in rivers (elephant).
The tail which sways like a cedar may be a euphemism for his enormous penis, which would rule out crocodile but certainly apply to the elephant or hippo or even the water buffalo.
The reference to him drawing the river into his mouth is certainly an apt description of the crocodile or hippo, but could be an elephant.

In legend, Behemoth and Leviathan are primordial monsters like those killed by various gods and heroes in myths. Jewish legend claims that Behemoth and Leviathan will be killed when the Messiahs come, and that the Children of Israel will feast on them, although they are currently NOT KOSHER. Of all these animals, only the water buffalo is even close to being kosher, so we can eliminate it if we accept that the legend has anything to do with the scriptural poetry at all.

Only the "tail" can plausibly be denied to the elephant, the hippo, and the water buffalo, but not to the crocodile, but as Wikipedia points out, the poet may mean a branching, brush-like tail (like a tree) rather than a gi-normous tail (like a crocodile or python's tail).

You know, I went to Catholic school for 10 1/2 years, and never did I see anything like that. For all the alleged disdain that religion has for science, they taught me very firm scientific principles, including evolution. I shudder to think about where that is taught and the kinds of people that school produces. It blows the mind.

Yes, I have. They tend to either self-correct quickly (let's face it - we all say dumb things sometimes), or, if the problem persists, they eventually get fired. The latter doesn't happen often - we've got a pretty good interview process (two written tests, one on statistics, one on programming, and then we ask the applicant to present some of their own research).

If I or my colleagues consistently and publically said dumb things*, the company's ability to get contracts would suffer. We're a research company.

/*This is why I use a pseudonym on FARK. The pressure is off - I can say dumb things, get corrected, and learn something without worrying about consequences.

There was a hilarious version of this in another story, which noted:  "He was given a DNA test which proved he was a Vietnamese citizen."

What can't DNA tests do?
