* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

What culture is this myth from?
« on: March 17, 2013, 09:47:41 pm »
I remember being told a creation myth a long time ago.  Recently I tried to look it up; I remembered it as Hopi, but it doesn't actually seem to be, so now I'm unsure where to look for it.  

As I remember it, the myth goes like this:

The gods created the first man out of clay.  But there was something unsatisfactory about him, so they tore him to pieces and started again.  I think this theme went through several repetitions with different materials --- I remember there being wood people --- with the gods destroying the proto-humans in the end, until finally they got the idea to make humans out of flesh, thus creating the present world.  

Sound familiar?
