Quote# 59708

Though European dragons are almost always regarded as evil, or at the least mere predators, dragons in Eastern mythology tend to be regarded as divine creatures, as often benevolent as neutral or evil. It is possible that this is because after the Great Flood, predatory, carnivorous dinosaurs tended to migrate westward, whereas large, plant-eating dinosaurs tended to migrate east from Mt. Ararat.

This is what Paleocons actually believe.

or it was because europeans brought the mythology over, and since it wasnt god they made them evil.

It is also possible that you're just making shit up again.

I love the "References"-section at Conservapedia-articles... This has:
1. ? "In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea."(Isaiah 27:1)

That's some solid investigating they've done there.

Whoo, never heard of them!

I see a whole new stripmine of fuckwittery before us!


It's not often I swear. But this quote is just so insanely, mind-boggling stupid I have to. I'd call it half-witted, but even a halfwit could see the original premise is complete bollocks.

There, did it again...

Oh, wait.

It's from 'Conservapedia'.

'insanely, mind-boggling stupid' is their bread and butter.

Yeah, that must be it.

Something tells me you've been puffing the magic dragon.

Lets not forget that the majority of dinosaurs are protobird, or more bird like than reptile.

Also the fact that whoever wrote this pulled it straight out of their ass with the flood and migration story.

The unintentional humor generated by Conservapedia continues unabated.

2/25/2009 9:03:41 PM

Oy Vey!

Except that dinosaurs died out about 65 million years before humans arrived on the scene, and there was no "Great Flood".

2/25/2009 9:09:26 PM


Never mind the fact that most dragons aren't even dinosaur-like at all (the European kind were mostly giant snake-like reptiles, and the mythology eventually evolved to the more familiar giant lizard with wings, and the Asian kind was always serpentine)...

2/25/2009 9:10:53 PM

Or not.

So the predators migrated away from their food source? Yep, makes perfect sense.

There really is no place their deranged minds will not go to bolster their made up myths is there?

Sigh... :(

2/25/2009 9:25:35 PM


They are so afraid of acknowledging the fact that any part of the Buy-bull is mythical, they have to assert the existence of dragons.

Bat! Shit!! Crazy!!!

2/25/2009 9:26:52 PM


Conservapedia - an everlasting source of utter nonsense and ramblings by a bunch of clinically insane retards!

2/25/2009 9:27:59 PM


While we're at it, how about sirens, Medusa, mermaids, and griffins?

I like it when they say, "... after the Great Flood." It saves me a lot of listening or reading.

2/25/2009 9:32:23 PM


@Oy Vey!: "Except that dinosaurs died out about 65 million years before humans arrived on the scene, and there was no "Great Flood". "

You're forgetting eddys in the time stream. European dragons are considered evil for selling microwave ovens to early Indo-Europeans 10,000 years before there was any place to plug them in.

Fight batshit with batshit, I always say.

2/25/2009 9:43:20 PM


This would be funnier if I didn't know for a fact that Conservapedia is getting Poe'd to fuck.

2/25/2009 9:44:10 PM


Yes, but did they burninate the countryside?

2/25/2009 9:45:48 PM


Here's the thing. Despite their carnivorousness, dragons from both cultures are depicted as serpentine. On top of that, they also have many features from other animals, the Chinese dragon is a composite creature of many different animals such as camels, tigers, stags, and snakes. Finally carnivorous dinosaurs walked on two feet, plant eaters on four, and either of them lived in the sky.

Most of the OT biblical references to dragons suggest they were sea-dwelling creatures. In fact, in several places, the word "tanniyn" was translated by the KJV translators as whale or sea monster. In China they recently found a huge horde of dinosaur fossils. No human remains or those of any other modern animal were found with them.
