QUOTED  So, they aren't really mythical because they were in the Bible


I, for one, am not Christian, and do believe that these beings have existed and still do. You may call me crazy, naive, or a person so in love with fantasy that I need these things to be real, but I don't believe in the holywood crapola like the Kraken and King Kong. Such beasts might have existed but not the human killers they were made to be. Since people fear what they do not understand, like in the case of the Salem Witch Trials, these creatures have learned to hide, and hide well.

QUOTED  Dragons had different branches that lived in different areas, like any other animal.


I agree to this, and there is a book, I forget what it's called, that said that dragons without wings, like the Chinese, were of one gender, while those with, were the other and only got together for breeding purposes. Also, it said that dragons exist in the Spiritual World, so only practiced excorcists and others who can see ghosts, would be able to see them. In that case, bones and such would not be found, or, perhaps, living between this world in the next, they cannot die.

Another one of my theories on dragons is, if they can breathe fire, which I've even thought of ways that it could be possible, then maybe a dragon who was close to the one that died cremated it, with flames too hot to leave even bone behind. Or a dragon's death means a feast for any dragons close enough to smell it, and they eat it all, including bones.


I know, I have a lot of time on my hands to think of various ways such creatures could exist, but I can't help it. As for Faeries and Pixies and such (and no they are not one in the same) I believe that they can not be seen by humans, but they can be by animals, particularly cats who are believed to have psycic powers.

Aha! That's what it was called! Sadly, I don't have any evidence other than another guys published ideas and my own wild imagination. But I like to think of everything so...

QUOTED  Astral plane


That's basically the same thing I said, except a fancier name. Still, I just thought of something, dragons could have been put in the 6th sense haha! "I see dead people..." eyes go wide and he adds a little louder, "and dragons!"

No, you can back him up because you have the same IP address, which means the same computer or base network.

One warning and ONE only. We DO NOT allow two log ins for a single person.

You would be wise to explain yourselves to the administration (that would be Nova, myself, and Chung) ASAP, or we will ban the IP.

When someone asks for evidence, one BETTER be using a scientific source, if you are wishing to assert things are thus. To prove something exists, one must have scientific evidence to back said statements up.

If you wish to state you believe what an author states in a religious/spiritual test, by all means, do so. But, don't pretend it proves ANYTHING.

When it comes down to mythical beasts, whether they are in the bible or other texts of observation, I believe there is truth to all of them. Truth, meaning that these people did observe something that they believed was a dragon or a cyclops or a giant. Example: Goliath the giant from Philistine may have been a man with one of those giants diseases, then clad in his gladiator like armor, David or who ever wrote the source that went into the book of 1 Samuel. Observations by people who do not have science at their hands tend to be overly simplified.
