    God of Sulphur, Strength, Metalworks,anvil,weapons shaping etc,etc.
    This is part and parcel of the Greco Roman Pantheon of Polytheistic deities. Fascinating stuff historically, but ultimatly herecy.

  6. Birmingham used to be a big iron, steel town. I lived there a looong time ago for a little while. Saw Vulcan all the time. They just refurbished him finishing maybe a year ago. Spent like 10 or 15 million doing it too.

    I thought a Vulcan was a big a$$ multi-barrel'd gun mounted on miltary copters.

    hmm usually metal workers wear like heavy leather over the normal clothes they wear . . .maybe not cottage cheese on his arse but lots and lots of scars from molten metal damage

    And isn't Spock a Vulcan?

    When I moved to Alabama in the early sixties, the old steel furnaces, open hearth type, were still running full tilt and the pollution was horrendous. During the summer months, especially, downtown Birmingham was a breathing death trap with an average of 40-50 people dying of asphyxiation during the months of June through August. There were days on end with 100% humidity and visibility no better than a thick New England fog. I went to the hospital several times, myself, with breathing problems, more than likely a precursor of my present condition.

    You could never see the sun and if you did, it was bright red, not yellow or orange. Once the furnaces closed down by government order the air quality became some of the best in the country but the area was severely depressed for years until other industry replaced the steel industry, which had made Birmingham what it is today. The whole mountain surrounding Birmingham is one big lode of Iron Ore, hence the reason for the statute of Vulcan, the God of Iron in the Roman vernacular. That's also why it's called, "Red Mountain!" It is as much an icon to Alabama as the Statute in New York is to those folks, aside from the immigrant (legitimate) influence having spotted it as one of the first things seen in the New World.

    Sorry for the history lesson but there was a reason that Vulcan was worth millions to the public to refurbish and save.

  11. The Vulcan has nothing to do with religon. It just stands for the fact that Birmingham used to be a big steel producing region.

    Aww cmon guys. Vulcans are sposed to be real good at helpin out Star Fleet Command.
    You always need one of those guys around to help with info and advice. You know what I mean, there will be some kind of strange or squirrely situation and nobody knows what to do until the Vulcan comes up with some trivial input that normal folks don't keep in their heads.
    I'm convinced that Vulcans would be good on Jeopardy. Its a well known fact that Alex Trebek is one. I mean look at how he knows all that stuff and puts people down for their ignorance.
    Of course he had to get his ears docked just so he could do the show.
    I think Canada has a lot of Vulcans.

    Then again, I could be wrong.
