Dragons? did they ever exist? How will we identify Dragons

    How do you feel about the subject of prehistoric dragons? Why do so many cultures around the world depict dragons? Why is it that all of us seem to somehow know instinctively about dragons? How come all of us have seem to be able to conjure up an image of a dragon? With this said, how come there are no dragons in the historical textbook? Do you think that science will ultimately explain the dragon mythology concept. Or do you feel that dragons should be relegated strictly to mythology? What will transpire if the remnants of the dragons are finally discovered? Who will the experts be? If the remains of the dragons are discovered how will we be able to identify them?  Dragons are not dinosaurs. Should dragons be a scientific subject? What are your thought on the subject of dragons?

    Why do you think dragons were not dinosaurs? This looks like the most plausible explanation. smile

      Misha this is just a thought but what if dragons came from the sea and dinosaurs came from the land. Realize that the large scale prehistoric sea dinosaurs have not been recovered yet.

      I have to agree with you on this theory Misha, as if people found dinosaur bones back in ancient times they may not have had any other way to explain them. Perhaps they were Pterodactyls!!!

    Definitely passes the Occam's razor test, Cindy smile

    And Seazoria, sea dinosaurs were (and still are!) sharks. The biggest modern one I believe is great white, but there were much bigger ones, and this is documented. Hold on, let me find a link.

    Misha - that was so funny! lol

    As long as dragons exist in our imagination - does it matter whether they really existed or not? smile

    Of course it could be that Dinosaurs and Humans DID coexist in the past...

      No, not really. You should be ashamed of yourself for adding a link to this stuff.

          Not to that sort of site. Any links I leave are usually to either reputable sources or funny ones. That one might be funny, but it purports to be science when it is not. Not a big fan of deliberately lying to children. Are you?

    This was one of my favorite songs as a child, "Puff the Magic Dragon."

    Of course, I knew nothing about the alternative meanings, I though it was about a dragon sad

      Nice song, never heard it. And is it about drugs you mean?

      Shalini and Mohit, thank you smile In fact I was really searching for good info about megalodons, but stumbled upon this one and could not help sharing it big_smile

      Oh yes, I think it great, and extremely funny because this was a massively popular children's song at the time. lol

    The reason I posted this tread is to solicit opinion with rearguards to the subject of dragons. Here is an interesting senerio. I work in excavation near the Great salt lake in northern Utah. And we keep excavating these rock formations  that look exactly like very large scale prehistoric sea dragon remains. Yes the formations are classified as Precambrian metamorphic tinic quartzite. These formations are located near ancient sea shore. On the surface one would just assume that these configurations are just miscellaneous rocks. Working in commercial earth moving our crews get the opportunity and examine these specialized configurations of individual stones  below the surface. Working above and below the surface a person begins to understand that there is both rhyme and reason within the configurations. What we look for is a very large individual surface stone, (skull).  Known in the local excavation business as a number 4 stone. These large #4 stones are some what rare. because these #4 stone have certain unique characteristics.  For example the #4 stone have equal right and left halves, additionally number four stones appear to be cut off at the back and grow forward towards the front. The single most unique characteristic of the #4 stones is that underneath these rare stone is what appears to be a proportionate full and complete set of teeth. Rights, lefts tops and bottoms. additionally all of the teeth seem to have identical progressive replacement teeth. The teeth are very specialized five sided rearward warping five sided triangular wedges.  averaging more than 27 inches. Skulls (#4 stone) are usually 10 to 20 feet in length. and weight between 10,000 and 20,000 pounds.

    Do you have any pics?

    1. Seazoria profile image60
      Seazoriaposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Yes Misha I have a series of about 220 photos taken during the Skull matrix excavation of Hillfieldion Seazoria. At this time we have only exposed the teeth on the right hand side of the jaw. Next dig season we expect to work down the left hand side of the jaw. I would like to put together a slide show with all 220 photos. It is really fascinating to see the photos progressively.

    That definitely will be interesting to see, I always get excited about that fossil stuff smile

           Misha we have also produced a small video that runs about 32 minutes that has excavation footage. And explains some of the key points to the dragon field research we are involved with.

        I would love to see those!
        I do believe in dragons.  People seem to forget that other animals took bones and wings and such small peices of skeletal remains and scattered them after whatever ate the animal before.  I do think that they have T-Rex wrong too.

        Prior to the Great Flood it is said there there were all kinds of mixes of animals that had drowned.  The thing that gets me thinking---if the water animals and fishes were already living in the water, then they could not have drowned and therefore still here somewhere.
         
        Then again if you believe in Darwn and evolution, just how long was it before the Great Flood and how long did it take for the earth to be covered up with water.  I am getting at...... some land species may have had time to evolve into sea creatures and vice versa.

        We still have not explored the depths of the ocean and under the mountains to see what all is there.  Like I said, I do believe in dragons becasue of the points that I just made and the historical references of many, many cultures that aren't even close to each other and had no idea about other people's.  It's just too coincidental.

    Dragons are basicly just like dinosaur's
    Some say that they originated from terradactyls
    Its just 1 big quarril like medusa,Some say 'Well if she isnt real,Why is there story's about her'
    while some say 'She isnt real,Its just made up stories to get fame,If she was real we would have evidance like bones'
    But its still rumored that they still roam the planet,Maby on a differant dimention.
    Hope I helped smile
