Are unicorns really that crazy?
Unicorns are basically horned horses, yet people are completely against the idea. What's so crazy about a horned horse? We have horned goats and horned rhinos (okay, so they generally have horns, I know). Ignore the fact that they fart rainbows and poop glitter, that’s probably physically impossible. I’m not a nutcase; I just wanted to know what other people thought about this matter.
Well there have also been cases of horned humans. I suspect there never was a species of horned horse but cannot be sure. Certainly think there are no fossils. The skulls presented as unicorn skulls usually turn out to belong to Narwhals
I can imagine the existence of a horned horse. But if they exist, why aren't there any documented cases? Are they being kept in secret along with the aliens at Roswell? Is the ability to fart rainbows some sort of a security threat?
Well, I think anything is possible and if they are in mythology, there must be some basis to truth to them no? There is at least a little truth, even if a lightly skewed, so I think these could be one of those circumstances where they can be considered based upon what once was real; perhaps at one time.
Historically, "unicorn" is simply a Latin translation of the Greek "rhinocerous." The best guess of analysis of early texts is that someone who wrote in Greek saw, or talked to someone who saw a rhino and wrote down a description. People later tried to draw pictures from the writing, and came up with the image of the unicorn. Then they added all kinds of magical qualities to this beast that was written of in ancient texts which they had never seen. I hadn't heard about the spectacular poops and farts, though!
So, yes there is a unicorn, Raffia. But he's pretty ugly, and is called a rhinocerous.
I don't think "crazy" is the word I would use regarding unicorns. It's not hard to love, admire and want to believe in something that is powerful, pure and beautiful. That kind of love can be good for you, if it inspires you to live up to your own ideals and best potentials. I think that would be true of a lot of ideas and beliefs - what effect does it have on you? Does it make you a stronger, better, kinder, person?
I don't think you are too likely to see a real unicorn (modified goats like the kind the Ringling Brothers Circus had for a few years don't count) with your own two eyes. There isn't much evidence for the existence of unicorns as we know them in popular culture (lovely horned horses). But that doesn't make it crazy to want them to exist or to love them. And it doesn't account for what might exist in reality that we don't see or perceive well (string theory suggests that there are more than the 4 dimensions we experience in our lives) so who knows?
Unicorns are often depicted in pop culture as harmless, beautiful creatures but this couldn't be further from the truth. Unicorns are the only animals in nature, besides humans, that are capable of pure evil. They have very bad temperaments and often attack any living thing within 50 feet of them purely out of bloodlust. They are carnivorous creatures, hiding razor sharp fangs under neath those horse-like lips, and their diet consists mainly of pretty things, like butterflies, human babies, and lambs. In 1322 AD, a group of men and women were formed to travel the globe and eradicate these death-obsessed horror beasts. The Global Unicorn Slaughter Squad (GUSS) managed to reduce the unicorn population down to about 3 over the next 650 years and are still around to this day, hunting unicorn and saving us all from an unseen threat.
So yes, Unicorns are crazy as tits on a sandwich.
I guess that means you haven't heard of 'The Sluagh' Oh! and these guys aren't dead just surfing... Sleep tight
Butterflies, babies and lambs? You think they are all benign? Never heard of sabre-toothed butterflies or flesh-eating lambs? As for babies - remember their sole purpose in life is to replace an adult human being - is that sinister or what? :-)
No, not so crazy. If I didn't know better, and someone told me about the Narwhal (the whale with the "horn") and I didn't already know they exist, I would think that sounds crazy. So a horned horse is not that far out.
Ask my insurance company... I'm still bed ridden after my last encounter... I don't know if I'll ever be able to sit comfortably again...
The only thing 'crazy' about unicorns are the people who think they really exist. You know the ones who believe Santa flies across the skies with reindeer pulling the sleigh. Oh, wait, they are not crazy though, they are children who tend to believe in all kinds of fairy tales, most of which are discarded as adults.
And we also know that there are those living amongst us who never out grow all of their childhood fairy tale experiences.
Here is a hub about then and other legendary creatures found in March.

Well I wrote a poem about these mysterious animals.
I do believe they exist and I do believe they are in hiding.
Their trails are hard to find.
Their horns are healing aliments that were used to heal the sick. However the method was cruel. I believe that the method used is the reason they are in hiding and will return upon the earth when our creator (God) brings us to his new world.
I also believe that the touch (as I mention in my poem) of their horns will be the healing powers.
Horned horses don't seem at all farfetched to me. Most "unicorns" though have wings, which I find hard to believe being physically possible.
Where did you hear that 'most unicorns have wings'? This is completely wrong and I should know, I have been collecting all things unicorn related for over 30 years now. Here is a link to prove it: https://www.google.com/search?q=unicorn … =en&am
Lol its fictional animal. I am just saying the ones in history have been winged.
That's is what I meant, in history the mythical creature called a unicorn is not winged. I have owned so much stuff like ornaments, pictures, bookmarks etc, and none of them have ever been winged. Check it out on Google images if you are doubtful.
Unicorns are so crazy, they would beat you with a sock filled with billiard balls if they had thumbs.
Farting rainbows and pooping glitter is PROBABLY physically impossible?
I am just going to answer this question literally. No. Of the several Unicorns I have met none have been crazy. They are quite stable (get it). The problem for a Unicorn is that danged cross-eyed problem.
Clearly the reason for the fragrant farts is the horn. You see horses like dogs like to smell each other's butt. But with the horn this is too risky. So they evolved the visual and fragrant gastrointestinal extravaganza.
All this about the Rhino is simply reversed, Rhino's are Unicorns that are cursed. You guessed it --- because they would not stop stabbing the others in the butt!
I collect unicorns and think they are the most beautiful of all mythical creatures. Another difference is that the traditional unicorn has cloven hooves as opposed to the hooves horses have that are not cloven.
They also definitely do not have wings (I think ii3rittles above is confusing them with the mythical winged horse called Pegasus who was not a unicorn. I can see no other reason to assume that 'in history most unicorn's had wings', just not true!).
You leave my Unicorns alone! lol! no seriously, years ago when they were first mentioned it was because they were mistaken for real horses with a horn or alicorn, seems that our unicorns were really some sort of mountain goat from Africa, can't remember the name, shame as I love them, well, the idea anyway!
Why are you all trying to make this out to be the unicorn from mythology? Get real. The unicorn of mythology is a horse, not this silly deer-like creature. If you're looking for a real unicorn, this is NOT it.
I am not familiar with any evidence of unicorns existence, but it doesn't seem impossible. I would like to look up more information on them. My manliness might take a hit and I may look silly like some of the ghost hunters on tv, but I want to research them a bit. Very good question.
I don’t think that the idea of mythological creatures is that bizarre. I mean, if civilizations which where miles apart from each other and had no way to contact one another, had the same stories and tales, it had to come from somewhere (I'm talking about a veeerrryyy long time ago). There was a documentary about mermaids once, explaining the theory that they could have been a branch of the human ancestry that had some how been split off and ad adapted to living in the water.

What is the difference between God and a unicorn?Why don't people believe in Dragons if they believe in God? What's the difference here? I'm not an atheist, I'm just curious.

Has multiuniverse maths proved unicorns exist?New multiuniverse math is telling us anything and everything can exist including unicorns! Is this true? Are serious scientists now saying heaven could exist as well as God?
