Discussion Dragons.

Dragons of all kinds are great, majestic creatures that everyone should respect, honor, and perhaps even worship.

They are masters of disguise, with commanding mastery over the skies and the Elements of fire, ice, earth, lightning, poison, fear, wind, shadow and even time.
Wise beyond anything Humans can imagine, and powerful beyond our belief.

I have always wanted to be a dragon. I roleplay as one on occasion, and I enjoy it immensely.

I've never had a dull moment as my dragon character and always felt the sheer power bestowed upon them.

PRAISE BE TO THE DRAGONS!

Has anyone ever wondered where the concept of dragons (and unicorns and other magical creatures) came from? And I don't mean in the sense of a specific geographical location and time period, but more who actually came up with the creature in the first place and what inspired them.

Like...maybe the discovery of a fossilized pterodactyl skeleton?

Personally I don't believe the unicorn to be completely mythical, unlike most of the creatures on that list.

The Unicorn could have been a real-world mutation of a common horse which was hunted to extinction by medieval man, because of their supposed mystical powers.

So the unicorn's powers aren't real, but the animal could very well have been.

Yeah, I've often wondered the same thing, although I suppose one argument against it would be that there isn't any fossil evidence...well, not yet, anyways ;).

one could argue that dragons were real in ancient history, as they appear all over the world in different cultures where communication would have been impossible. Of course that raises the problem as there are no remanants to be found. interesting thought though.

If dragon carcasses explosively self-cremate (in other words: if they explode, similar to the Hindenburg zeppelin disaster, when they die) then there would be no fossil remains. Only ash, long since turned to dust and scattered in the wind.

It's a plausible theory, but it's only a theory.

I have and always will love dragons, They're just so fascinating and majestic. I like to believe they were a part of this earth a long time ago. There's a ton of places on the earth that have yet to be explored, So who knows what's real and what isn't? Who knows Big Foot could even be real as well. ;)

Agreed, Remy.

Even though unicorns are my favorite mythical creature, dragons are right up there as well as they're my second favorite!! :D (Who knows they could have existed along with the dinosaurs.)
