So check this out, this is not a conspiracy theory.

People say scientifically Humans and Dinosaurs never saw each other but... then what the hell is this?!




Looks like a Stegosaurus!
Plus also, multiple languages has the same word and meaning "Dragon" on multiple cultures.


(English) "Dragon"
(Japanese) "Ryu" "Tatsu" 竜
(Chinese) "lóng" 龙
(German) Drachen

And so on, this "Dragon" Word and meaning exists universally as a reptile like creature.
Studying the Japanese Language has also help me learn that sometimes there's no literal words at times for other words in different languages.

So how is it that so many different Cultures and Languages have the exact same Word and Meaning?
And don't you think its strange that there's so many cultures that have folk lore and stories of people slaying dragons in Europe and Asia?

And statues as well riddles across lands even foreign to themselves.

Also in France is a tale of " St. George slaying the dragon"




And also in China is a legend of "The Dragons Pearl"

It's everywhere and there's even more Pictures of Pottery and artifacts depicting what looks like "Dinosaurs" that are interpreted as "Dragons".

What do you all think?

Actually, that is a well-exploited conspiracy theory, that hardcore Creationists use to try and discredit the the dinosaurs-replaced-by-mammals Evolution theory. If it wasn't your idea to go there, step cautiously.

And the first paleontological dinosaur bones were first exhibited as "Dragon bones", although some art depicts St. George's dragon as the size of an alligator, or at least the Komodo variety. (Here he is, your Komodo dragon...)

Really that's a conspiracy theory? I mean I kinda figured people are stupid and forgot in time what Dragons were xD

Plus I said its not a conspiracy theory because I know about that Reptilian conspiracy (completely Insane) so I was trying to be cautious.

"conspiracy theory
noun
a belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for an unexplained event."

Not sure about that.

Okay, "Crackpot theory", then. The two definitions do get commonly blurred.

I have religious reasons for believing dragons are a thing.

Well scientists do say many dinosaurs were 'bird-like'... (Ex: T-rex having feathers and pterodactyls)

Flying reptiles -> dragons

What exactly is the mainstream scientific explanation for art that looks just like dinosaurs if they supposedly never coexisted with humans?

I think it's also entirely possible that people could have seen things like Crocodiles (particularly those native to the Nile river in Egypt) or Komodo Dragons or other large lizards in bygone eras during exploration, trade routes or whatever and returned with largely exaggerated stories of what they saw. Considering that people running across such beings might very well have no frame of reference for what it was, it makes sense that they'd consider it to be more significant than it actually happened to be. Seeing such an animal would be a game-changing event for anybody who didn't know about it.


Years would pass and more travelers and traders would see similar animals sometimes and confirm at least to a degree that, yes, big lizards exist.

While it would be cool to imagine that many of these myths came from holdover remnants of giant lizard species that happened to survive alongside humans, I doubt it. As for the fact that images of them exist in some form across most if not all cultures in the world, I think it just shows a preponderance of big lizard species the world over. Consider that the existence of very large snakes or fish that appear serpentine would also feed into these myths.

Another factor here is the mammalian knee-jerk distrust of reptiles.

Those are just my thoughts on the matter.

I don't know, coincidence?

Also, an interesting article of note.

It's funny they bring up dinosaur fossils such as the stegosaurus. Yeah that looks sooooo much like a Chinese dragon.
