          There WERE dinosaurs. But flying, fire-breathing "dragons" that hoard gold and interact with humans? No.
          Ancient people didn't have scientific method so they were confused. They invented dragons because they didn't understand fossils.

              Trial and error. They also understood some shit. That bears nothing on dragons though.

                how is that not innate application of the scientific method. they had practical questions, tested them with inventions, and iterated upon them using what they had learned

                How the frick did this anon write that out without a hint of irony? What is the scientific method if not trial and error?

        There must have been a snake lizard of huge sizes that inspired that. I mean look at the flag of Wales and Bhutan. How do two cultures which are basically on opposite sides of the planet end up with similar flags based on their desperate cultural history?

        Plus there are countless stories in all world cultures about giants roaming the earth aeons ago. It wouldn't be impossible that a dinosaur type lizard somehow survived extinction like the Colecanth fish or giant squids.

          I can buy the concept of that, there's a ton of insane shit that happened to early humans that we could never even begin to fathom, but the people who believe dragons existed aren't just claiming a dinosaur species survived, they are saying there were big magical creatures that were as intelligent as humans and could even talk. This is the mindset of a 5 year old with developmental issues.

            ...no, they're just saying there were possibly large flying lizards. Are you a moron?

          To be fair Chinese dragons and Evropean dragons are two completely different large reptiles merely sharing the same name.
          It's a bit like ancient Israelites and modern israelites, a confusing naming coincidence.

      The traditional Chinese dragon is based on Chinese catfish, and are the mythologized rivers/floods.

      There is literally no functional difference between "dinosaur" and "dragon."

      If there was a living pterodactyl seen by any culture at any point they all would've called it a dragon.

    They ended up being the new path for those networks. Pseudoscience sells these days. Just look at the mouth-breathing morons in here who believe it. Just sad people who want to believe in magical fantasy creatures like kids. It's a way to hold on to that childlike sense of wonder, but actually believing it is ignorant. These are people we don't need voting.

    Nah it was still the hitler channel back then. It wasn't until the late 00's that things started to fall apart at the big H. I can't remember what show it was that started the decline. Pawn stars, ancient aliens, one of those frickers.

    Mermaids were obviously just men trapped on a boat for too long fishing that they could see a woman
    Instead of ‘prison gay’, their only other option was to become ‘fish gay’ and cope themselves into thinking that a fish were kinda cute from the right angle

    Frick actually this thread got me thinking...
    I used to own a CD with one of those specials, it was mockumentary I guess but they played it completely seriously about looking for dragons in some iced out cave in a mountain. Part of it was the explorers in modern day doing excavation shit and discussing the dragons, and the rest was a recreation of the dragons lives back then and the whole thing ended with a brutal pitched battle with some warriors sent to kill the drags, I think either the dragon ends up killing them all in increasingly brutal fashion but lives, or he dies at the end after killing them all. That last scene was actually really hardcore from what I remembered and it left me a bit scared as a kid cause it was actually fairly bloody and the music was perfectly dreadful and added to the oppressive atmosphere.

    I've been trying to remember what this shit was called for years because I really want to watch it again.

    Dragons aren't real and never have been. So you should all stop wasting your time searching for our lairs already because they don't exist.
