None of us have ever been there (back in the pre-historic times along w/ the rest of history), so we really don't have actual proof whether or not something is true. We can't say something's true just because it was on television or because most of us agree on it. OT: Now, I was wondering, [b]WHAT IF[/b] the dinosaur fossils that archaeologist found were misguided and most/all/some dinosaurs are actually dragons, or evolved into them. Europeans and Asians have ancient paintings, myths, legends of dragons and that makes me wonder, what if they did exist. What if we just go rid of them and then authority wanted to hide their past so this generation will believe they were just fantasies. I mean, how did the idea of dragons even come out? Nobody knows it's origins. Most mythical creatures have origins, but dragons don't. It's not hard for me to believe that they were made up and it's myths simply spread across the world. But that still has me wondering; where's it's origin? Why are they similar to dinosaurs? Why did our ancestors make myths of them? I am trying to start a discussion. Please no criticizing. If you believe I am wrong, I respect your opinion. Now, Do you believe dragons may have existed and that we were forced to believe they never did? Or not? What ever your opinion is, please, discuss.
People found fossils for dinosaurs and created the idea of dragons because there was no actual concept of dinosaurs yet. The reason people all over the globe have their own versions of dragons is simply due to the fact that dinosaurs were spread across the globe.
