Were dragons once real and are now extincted. Winged Serpents are mentioned in India, Africa, and the Bible

I asked the question because they are mentioned in nearly every culture and many societies and civilizations were so far apart that there’s no way for them to know what the other was doing. There was no modern methods of communication back then, so how did they all come up with variation of the same animal?

Dragons, behemoths and even unicorns are mentioned in the bible and other ancient texts. So…did these creatures ever actual exist and became extinct far later than scientist say? The Book of Daniel talks about an young dragon. Daniel wrote of it as being more or less, simply an animal. There was nothing mystical about it.

Records of pterosaur-like animals living close by mankind. The mention of its existence frequently come up and have done so since the beginning of human history. Herodotus, a Greek historian, expounded of “winged serpents” living in Arabia in the fifth century before Christ.

The Bible portrays ‘fiery flying serpents’ in the book of Isaiah, living in the desert with camels and men.

Numerous reports of pterosaurs still alive in present day are recorded in Africa and India. Reports of the flying dinosaurs are said be nighttime creatures, and have a bioluminescent element. Are these the ‘fiery flying serpents’ portrayed in the book of Isaiah.

There are accounts of a flying reptile the locals call “Kongamato”, an animal regularly [speculated to be] found in the wildernesses of South Africa.

I’m not declaring any of the creatures once did or didn’t exist. I’m saying that there had to have been something the ancients based their images upon or they had some really wild super active imaginations.


It’s possible. Things like one horned goats, whales and fanged deer are real.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. I think you are right, even allowing for exaggeration, there must have been something that first gave rise to such stories.

    • I believe there was something alive and could be seen that served as the source for the stories we know of today. It’s either something actually existed or our ancestors all over the wold had a very vivid imagination.

      Some say these were nothing more than dinosaurs. But I beg to differ, the Aboriginal Australians’ cave painting have drawn them both. The drawing made it clear they aren’t talking about the same animal. It could be a animal that was hunted into existence like the Dodo. The Book of Daniel told us it was an animal. There was nothing mystical about. Other than the attributes humanism gave it.

      I have always wondered what gave rise to such stories, especially mythology. What did the ancients see to make them write what they did and passe the account down from generation to generation?
