The imagine above is a 3,500 year old painting from the Ming Dynasty, by Ding Yun Peng, 1368-1644BCE, depicting an Arhat (holy man) interacting with what looks like, well... ??🐉...
Alright my friends, this morning I stumbled upon something truly mind blowing that I had to share.
I had heard a few times a rumour that "dinosaurs didn't exist" and was always skeptical, I guess because I was taught in school that they existed, and I also watched The Land Before Time. Lol
So, I'm going to copy and paste from an article I read online. If you want to see the whole thing, google "the myth of dinosaurs and the reality of dragons"
"Do you realize that dinosaurs are just a theory? A theory that is backed up by very shaky evidence. Most people believe in dinosaurs because they are taught in school about them. Rarely does a school teach the children that dinosaurs are just a theory and are not proven to be fact. The long recorded history of Dragons has been swapped out by the theory of dinosaurs. When did this happen? Well it all started in recent history, 1842 to be exact. Before 1842 everyone referred to these fossilized bones as dragon bones. One man named Sir Richard Owen created the term dinosaur in 1842. Dinosaur simply means terrible lizard. Understand, no one, in all of world history, believed there were dinosaurs before 1842. Everyone believed in the historical evidence of dragons. That's because almost every single cultural around the world has historical evidence of dragons.
Is it interesting that after this term was created, all of a sudden the first dinosaur discovery happens in 1858. Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences member, William Foulke excavated the first so-called dinosaur. It was a nearly-complete skeleton, only missing its head. The skeleton resembles many early drawings of dragons interestingly enough. But, to make the skeleton look bigger when it was on tour, William Foulke stood it up on its hind legs in a T. rex position."
Most posts coming on this today my friends ❤️ much love
