The Source of Real Dragons
On the Increase
Recently, there seems to be an increase in the number of sightings of so called Dragons.
Not surprisingly many of these stories of sightings come from China.
China is, of course, well known for its love of the Dragon, with its Dragon festivals and Dragon dances but never before, since ancient times, have there been so many reports of actual sightings of real Dragons.
China though, is not alone in this new phenomena. Malaysia has also joined in.
In Batu Gajah, in the Perak province of Malaysia, an ancient ceremony took place in order to try and wake a sleeping Dragon. It is said that, although the ceremony seemed to have failed, when a photograph of the sky was taken afterwards a “Dragon” appeared to be in the clouds.
In China it is hard to get networking sites like you tube and face book through the Great Firewall, however earlier this month a video, supposedly showing two red dragons in the clouds above an un named city appeared on you tube.
It is strange that stories of Dragons have been told from many different places around the world, yet no bones or other remains have ever been found.
Is it possible that with certain weather and atmospheric conditions these Dragon like shapes appear in the sky? Why are they shaped like Dragons?
It is my conclusion that Dragons have and still do exist. However “Dragons” are not living things, just atmospheric phenomena.
In other words: The shapes in the clouds are not named after Dragons, the shapes in the sky are the Dragons.
In the past these shapes in the clouds were not just seen as shapes but mistaken for real creatures. As atmospheric conditions allowed, these shapes appeared in various places around the world. As communications between different cultures improved, a common name became attached to these shapes “Dragons”. Perhaps these shapes appear alongside lightning and that is where the “fire breathing” comes from and it would also explain why no remains have ever been found.
With global warming and possible increased solar activity, will the atmosphere be conducive for an increase in the “Dragon” population?
