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.

Yeah, it was hard to get good Chinese take-out in the Middle East in those days.

I think you'll find the predators went where the herbivores went. Just a hunch...

So goddamn stupid.

"carnivorous dinosaurs tended to migrate westward, whereas large, plant-eating dinosaurs tended to migrate east from Mt. Ararat."
Yes, and sloths migrated across the ocean to South America. (without evolving!)

And Onyxia migrated to southern Kalimdor.

See, this is why people laugh at you. THIS is what passes for a scientific explanation in your world. Reality disagrees.

Wow... Conservapedia has an amazing grasp of the obvious, Though if it were anywhere else it wouldn't be all that impressive.

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.

Not sure if your aware of this, but just making shit up as you go along is not how an encyclopedia works. Where do you come up with this shit? It's not as if you have the slightest factual basis for any of it. Young earth creationism seems to be little mote than 1 part Genesis 1 and 9 parts brainless fanfic.

This is what Paleocons actually believe.


If you are refering to paleoconservatives then that's not always true, Paleocons (At least the ones that I know) tend to be representative of the old right, from the days before the republicans turned into the party of hatred, xeno/homophobia, and jacking off for jesus. Paleocons tend to be more like libertarians than modern day republicans, none of the ones that I know buy into YEC, or even OEC, though they do trend towards conspiracy theory.

... you fail ecology forever.

"In fact, in several places, the word "tanniyn" was translated by the KJV translators as whale or sea monster"
iirc, it can also mean "jackal", which fits a lot of the supposed dragon references (the ones referring to dwelling in ruined cities and the like that obviously refer to land animals) far better.

Except would it not make sense for the carnivores to PURSUE their prey as opposed to isolating themselves from them?

Wrong! Everyone familiar with the works of the great Don Bluth knows that all the leaf-eaters went to the Great Valley, which is in the west, not the east.

Or, it could possibly be a mistranslated reference to something completely different. Lots of greek words have several meanings, depending on connotation.

Or, it could be that "dragons" belong in the same mythical class of creatures as "unicorns".

Or, it could be that you're just batshit insane.

Take your pick, or pick all of the above.

Because all plant eating dinosaurs were obviously friendy.

Psst, rhinos are plant eaters too. I dare you to try giving one a hug.

For the sake of honesty, you really need to change your site's name from Conservapedia to Fundiebunkapedia. I think there are actual conservatives that would cringe if they saw your site.

I hope this is a poe trolling conservapedia, but after reading some of their other articles, I have some doubt.

you realise those were stories of fantasy right?

This is a mildly entertaining story. But I've seen much better fiction than this.

Ah! A shining example of SCIENCE!

Yeah, that's it. Thanks for clearing that up.

Even if that were the truth and it's far from it. Why would the predators migrate away from their food?

If all the herbivorous went east, what the fuck did the carnivores in the west eat?

The Land Before Time was not a documentary!

His Majesty's Dragon and Throne of Jade are both works of fiction. Incredible reading, yes, but works of fiction nonetheless.

Benevolent, neutral, evil, "dragons." D&D meets fundie, fundie rolls against catastrophic failure, fails.
