there are the "myths" of dragons. most myths have some basis in reality. i have some more articles which discuss drawings of dinosaurs in caves alongside woolly mammoths; and pictures of dinosaurs painted on vases of ancient cultures. if you are really interested, i'll look for those articles for you.
Colors, I have probably read the articles but you can link them and I will read over them and respond as best I can. Probably not until after the Super Bowl though. :lol:

mastermind,

isn't it weird? i think a few dinosaurs survived to coexist with people, but there could have been so few that not many people saw them (hence the myths about "dragons".

new species are discovered everyday. we haven't even come close to discovering half of the species of our world's rainforests. we know close to nothing about our world's oceans. the horseshoe crab is a living fossil from prehistoric times. who knows how long dinosaurs' lifespans were.

and if there have been so few sitings of the blue whale and we've never even seen a giant squid alive, who knows what else could be at the bottom of the ocean...loch ness :D

Don't have time to go into it now, but there is a theory that "dragons" are just a medieval form of modern "UFO" sightings. It has been suggested that such "phenomenal sightings" seem to keep pace with peoples' knowledge and technology.

And remember the prehisoric fish that have been found in deep oceans and washed up on beaches from time to time.

The pics are not to be taken seriously. They are in humor.

Intelligent and well-informed? I am not basing my opinion on something as flimsy as folklore. I base my opinion on something a little bit more solid such as the vast amount of scientific evidence which indicates dinos were extinct long before man.

Do you believe in Santa, the Easter bunny, and the tooth fairy? Stories of them have been passed down through generations so odds are the exist, right?

The key there might be they have been found.

I'll take the words of witnesses over modern day "scientists" in this matter any day. If their claim is even remotely realistic, their word is above that of people who lived thousands of years later (IE:US)

If so many people say they saw a giant reptile, then odds are, there was one.

sofalogic,

i didn't take them seriously, i really laughed when i saw them, honest!

there's much evidence against these theories (they are far from indisputable), but i can see you've already made up your mind.

silly rabbit, wrong. while there is much evidence that dinosaurs not only existed, but may have coexisted with man, there is no proof for these other thingies. it must suck to not be able to tell the difference.

p.s. take a chill pill, dude.

mastermind,

people thought the giant squid was a myth until just a few years ago when one was found in the stomach of a humpback whale.

on loch ness,

yeah, i don't think they ever found nessy, but maybe it died or made its way to the ocean. :( :)

It's more likely that people saw an average sized lizard somewhere warmer and then upon migration to a colder climate where the lizards were tiny newts, it got blown out of proportion. It is also possible that something like, say the komodo dragon existed in europe and went exitinct.

And personally, I would rather take hard evidence from scientists than conjecture about medieval stories from a modern perspective.
