Dragon history is interesting because it’s nearly universal throughout the world’s ancient cultures. Some say the fossil “Dracorex hogwartsia” was discovered by ancient people, thus man’s imagine of dragons was born, so they say.
But “Dracorex hogwartsia” has been found only in North America, not anywhere else. So a question remains, how did the ancient Chinese, Australian aboriginal, Egyptian, Babylonian, Welsh, and other cultures come up with such a similar dragon legend if the fossils that fueled their imagination were so rare and were discovered on the other side of the world?
And another questions comes to mind, how do so many different cultures were able to invent such similar details about their dragon, unless their ancestors actually encountered them?
Records of the Greek historian Herodotus and the Jewish historian Josephus describe flying reptiles in ancient Egypt and Arabia. In other cultures, it was a great honor to kill these creatures. There are numerous records of warriors killing great beasts in order to establish credibility in a village. Gilgamesh, Fafnir, Beowulf and other famous legends, including the mythology of Egypt, Greece and Rome, include specific descriptions of dragons and other dinosaur-like creatures.
Discoveries of asian pottery and royal robes with these dragon like dinosaurs, also on Egyptian burial shrouds and government seals, Peruvian burial stones and tapestries, Mayan sculptures, Aboriginal and Native American petroglyphs (carved rock drawings), and many other pieces of ceremonial art throughout ancient cultures.
So why are evolutionists suggesting a rare fossil to explain all those similar details in different cultures? Because within the Darwinian framework, the majority decided that dinosaurs did not live with man.
However, in the Bible…The word “dragon” (Hebrew: tannin) is used throughout the Old Testament, and most directly translates as “sea or land monsters.” In the Book of Job, the author describes the great creatures, Behemoth (Job 40) and Leviathan (Job 41). So dragon-looking dinosaurs did in fact existed with humans as it’s broad foundation in history bares out.
