Do you believe that the unicorn ever really existed? Perhaps it does somewhere else?
Yes, it once existed in a 1985 Tom Cruise movie titled Legend. After Tom jumped Oprah's couch, however, the unicorn also disappeared. Neither has been seen in any real capacity since.
I think it would be lovely if it had existed. But I honestly think it is just a myth and that it was created perhaps by seeing a similar animal in unusual natural conditions. Of course human beings have been proved very wrong before and we will again, and it would be nice if we were wrong about the unicorn.
I certainly wish unicorns did exist, but I don't think they ever really did. I believe Ringling Brothers claimed to have one at some point, but I think it was just a goat. Bummer.
I'm afraid that I don't believe this creature existed. Unicorn is just people's imagination and fear of natural disaster. In ancient times, scientific technologies are not so advanced as today, when some kinda disaster occurred, people may easily associate it with unicorn and other so called holly creatures. Think it's their punishment to human beings. No related and specific evidence yet! The only evidences mainly come from movies we watched.
Shel Silverstien wrote a poem about why we don't see unicorns, and I agree with him!

All myths come from some sort of truth. So what I think is that there may have been a deformed white horse that someone saw and assume it was some type of gift from god. Or it could just be the creation of some story that passed through time. The ideas of vampires and Frankenstein came from really situations, and a lot of imagination.
if it did then it is the most hidden fossil in existence. early christians were lead to believe it existed until the 18th century when it was removed from the holy and christian bible. it is scientificaly impossible for such an animal to have one horn, hooved animals have none whereas cloved animals have two horns. it took science to get it removed from most religious text.
I was reading up on mythology for my mermaid hub and i found this piece about Unicorns.........The Romans were very familiar with rhinos because they used them in their Roman games at the Coliseum. Then Africa became cut off from Europe with the fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of the Ottoman Empire. With Europeans being no longer able to travel to central Africa, knowledge about the rhinoceros became hazy. Eventually the only thing that Europeans knew about it was a description that it was a horse like creature with a horn in the middle of its forehead. Artists in Europe, who had never seen a rhinoceros, drew it exactly like this, not knowing that it had a far heavier build than any horse. Then because of its unusual appearance as depicted by the artists, it became a popular mythological and magical creature.
This myth was made more confusing in the Middle Ages, when whalers began to hunt for Narwhals. These are medium size whales about 5m long. The males have a long spiral tusk growing out of their forehead. These horns were so unusual that con men began to sell them as unicorn horns. This is why in many pictures of unicorns they have spiral horns. It seems these con men, in order to make these horns “a must have item”, they claimed that unicorn horns were a protection against poisoning. It seems they completely fooled the aristocratic class, because it became fashionable to put parts of these horns in their drinks, thinking they were magical unicorn horns that would nullify the effects of any poison. Pharmacies at the time called these horns alicorn and they were widely used up until the mid 18th century in medicines.
This myth making changed the perception of the unicorn so much, that when Europeans moved back to Africa, sailing there by ship and seeing rhinos, they no longer recognised them as unicorns and renamed them.
I think symbolic meaning was attributed on purpose to creatures which did not and could not possibly exist. In this way the purity of symbol could be protected. Just imagine if you were living in The Middle Ages and believing, that Unicorn is a symbol of innocence and purity and than one day came upon it stabbing some rabbit or whatever with his corn. The symbol would be ruined. What I mean is that nature, although beautiful and fascinating it its own way, have imperfections as well, that's why perfect symbolic creatures appeared in collective human imagination.

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.

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,...
