What about when the Roman Emperor, Caligula, declared war on Poseidon? He marched his men into the sea and stabbed at the sea floor for three days before he declared victory.

how about Xerxes who decided to punish Poseidon for destroying alot of his ships in a storm. The punishment was whipping. He literally whipped the sea.

a) Neptune.
b) He didn't send troops to the ocean to stab the sea bed, he challenged Neptune because he was having bad weather in the conquest of Britain.

Poseidon is greek, Neptune is the roman god of the sea.

Caligula going to war against Neptune (Roman Poseideon) is from the play I, Claudius. It is loosely based on Suetonius' claim that Caligula went to the English channel with troops merely to get seashells (see Western Expansion section). So, it's actually fiction based on slander.

But wouldn't he have declared war on Neptune, the Roman God of the Sea? Rather than Poseidon, the Greek God of the Sea?
I'm not trying to prove you wrong, it's a genuine question

And then there was that time that Xerxes got pissed at the sea because he couldn't cross a strait due to repeated thunderstorms. He sent one guy down to give the sea several lashes before he finally declared that the sea had learned it's lesson and it was safe to cross.

And there was also that time that America planned to detonate a nuke on the moon...

or how canada is technically at war with denmark over a small island to the east. the war consists of canadian forces going in, taking down the danish flag, replacing it with theirs, and vise versa. oh, and the island is 1.3 km across.
