Watch Creationists Argue That Dragons Were Real Animals

Science textbooks throughout Texas and Louisiana are set to get even more exciting as this dragons-are-real paradigm spreads.  Creationist author Darek Isaacs explains: “The Bible speaks about dragons…in the old scriptures, in the New Testament…Satan is compared to a dragon. Throughout history, on every continent, we see dragons portrayed, these lethal predators. In the Bible, God explains (Satan) to us using dragon imagery…people 2,000 years ago understood had dangerous they were. ”

    There are some very compelling accounts that testify to the existence of primeval creatures living alongside mankind until the last few thousand centuries. Even the mastadon is guessed to have persisted in some parts of the planet (such as Siberia) until 2000 B.C. The Mahabhrata gives a very convincing description of a mastodon being rode into the kurushetra war something J.R.R Tolkien, a etymologist and most certainly a reader of Sanskrit, likely borrowed for his Lord of the Rings)

    Even the dugong and the elephant bird and other megafauna lived on the planet before being very recently eradicated(by man) so one may assume that the existence of such enormous creatures is not so absurdly mythical.

    Perhaps this all seems rather round about since this topic is specific to “dragons”, but there are more than numerous mentions of the creatures matching their description from every facet of earlier ages from around the world round–from the artistic to the historic.

    If you are all together faithful in the interpretation of dinosaurs gifted to the public by the hierarchically acclaimed sciences you might go down to the public library and inspect one of the many ‘modern bestiaries’ published on the subject. If you have much intuition in you you’ll likely spot how barely different they are from the sorts of natural histories of the past that regarded the mermaid as manticore as factual.

    You’re an iota of a human being residing on a giant floating blue orb in the middle a infinitely expansive space. Whether you agree with this ‘ism’ or that ‘ism’ there’s a great deal of room for faith in that equation. I recommend you make some room for intuitive leaps rather than letting the college graduated materialists of the world spoon feed you their “here today-overturned tomorrow” ideas of reality.

      I think it is more probable, that the Mahabarata features an Indian elephant rather than a mastodon, if you think about it properly.

        …but the Mahabharat has space ships & nukes! AND Bhima had a love child w/ Sasquatch.

    • Chugs Rodiguez

      Well the mega fauna of Australia was killed by Aboriginal some 30,000 plus years ago.

  • Anarchy Pony

    That would be quaint if it wasn’t so stupid.

  • Jiro M. Trismegistus

    What about Behemoth, Leviathan, Abaddon’s Locusts, The Nephilim, The 200 Million Horseman and their “Horses”, not to mention Beasts One and Two from Revelation as well as Daniels Four Beasts???..I guess he has to save something for the sequels : )

    “god just compared our adversary to a imaginary animal”

    sounds about right to me

    • Monkey See Monkey Do

      or ‘our imagination just compared our adversary to an imaginary animal’

  • Kevin Leonard

    Dragons are bad m’kay?

  • Jim McMillan

    Nutty, but some animals that have existed are known to be extinct.

    Since my comment was obviously deleted due to the content of my viewpoint your site is evidently one that censors contrasting opinions. Not what I’m looking for in a news site–especially a fringe one bemoaning government censorship and expressive freedom. Wont be returning.

      (A) Neither I nor anyone else deleted your comment. It must have been marked as spam by Disqus. If I find it, I will restore it to the site (B) Toodle-loo.

        So much for ‘intuitive leaps’.

  • DeepCough

    You wanna see a dragon? A dragon that actually existed? Look up
    “Kaprosuchus.” It is nicknamed the “dinosaur slicer.”

  • Haystack

    This is why Christians are so obsessed with their daughters’ chastity…they need sacrificial virgins on hand in case a dragon terrorizes their villages.

  • Antediluviancurrent

    Cognitive dissonance is so cute.

  • Sean

    Why not…?
    If you’re going to believe in a sky god who gave birth to himself, who was tortured and killed, came back as a zombie, and flew up into heaven waiting for hominids to say “thx for doing that!” so he can abstain from torturing them for eternity per his own rules.
    If you’re going to believe in all THAT….why not add dragons to the mix? Hell, it’s actually slightly more rational than all the rest.

  • THEUNSEENofNOTISH

    The TITLE of this article is brilliant. It draws in Biblical Literalists and explains to them how DRAGON WERE A METAPHOR! based on the whole Satan/Snake in the Garden story. I love you guys! So glad you put this up here as you did. Fooled me! Nice Luciferian move.

  • ManwithnoCountry

    Wouldn’t be surprised if he proceeds to lure people into Ickeanism.
    Edit: watching more Creationist Today. “And remember: we believe the Bible is literally accurate in every single detail.” Is this a parody?

    Where is a decent eugenics program when you need it! He needs to be prevented from reproducing.

    Lilith was before Eve and Dragons were/are real.

    Has no one mentioned, Komodo?

    The original Hebrew meaning for the word translated as dragon pretty much means any predator that can kill a grown man. It usually was used for sea creatures and crocodiles and at least once in the bible it refers to jackals in the desert. Later additions to the biblical canon use it to mean a big snake.

    The whole wings and claws dragon we think of comes from eastern Europe and Scandinavia and the idea probably got there from the viking trade routes into Asia and Asian traditions brought into Europe by the various invasions (Mongols & Timurid).

    BONUS: Unicorns are another bad translation/evolving meaning thing. The Hebrew word refers to a wild ox or similar animal. The word unicorn used to refer to any animal with a single horn, and the white unicorn as a symbol of protection refers to the practice of surgically combining the horns of male goats to grow a single straight horn to defend the herd. That technique was lost, but old paintings remained and people thought they were horses (even though they have goatees in the old depictions). Those Scandinavians passing narwhal tusks as unicorn horns gave us the spiral we think of today.
