    I admit I was startled by the claim of an "8000" year old cathedral ... but hey perhaps aliens had a mission here back in 4000BC ... <grin>

    Thank you for sharing this link togata57 - there are a number of black fungi and lichen covering buildings in Europe, so I look forward to seeing how this new discovery differs from the ones known.

    Eh, what's a few decimal places among friends?

    Maybe black fungus IS the alien race, its mission (successful) to colonize this planet...! It can survive hot, cold, UV radiation, drought, and corrode rocks. Time is a human conception: to the fungus there are no seconds, years, millenia. Slow-growing...maybe it has lived in the rock since it was formed!

    If fungus joined forces with slime molds---we poor destructible humans would not stand a chance.
    Resistance is Useless!
